Did anyone else have the rear differential fail at under 40,000 miles?
Last Saturday I’m pulling out of a convenience store and I hear a big clunk, clunk from its differential. Then every time I would take off from a stop I would hear a clunk, clunk as my car jerked.
Took it back home and didn’t drive it until today to take it to the dealer.
The bad news is my car needs a new differential. The good news is it’s under warranty so no cost. The bad news is it is going to take some days to get the replacement.
Odd that a car with under 40k in miles has a blown differential but my car is AWD so has a wet clutch in it with two hydraulic pumps so, not just a simple differential.
Here’s a page of how the duel pump wet clutch differential works in my CRV in case anybody is curious￼.
Holman Honda gave me a loaner. So driving an HR-V for a few days until Honda gets a new differential.
This would have been a very expensive repair if not for the warranty. Makes me nervous that it fails again after its warranty expires￼
