We have a 2015 CRV EXL with 12K miles on it. Not long after purchase, a rattling/grinding noise from the back began. We are at wits end as to where it's coming from or how to fix it! We took it to the dealer, but they found nothing after putting it on the lift and inspecting it. The service guy adjusted the tonneau cover into the "locked" position, and the noise stopped - for a few weeks. It's back, even though we've removed the tonneau cover. To me it sounds like it's coming from somewhere on the exterior, maybe around the wheels or axel area. It's only at low speeds, such as driving through parking lots, etc, but it's SO annoying! I find it very hard to believe there's nothing wrong. I really hate the thought of trading it in because it costs so much money to do so. And other than that noise, I love this car! It gets great gas mileage, and it's a joy to drive. We also got lucky and have a 2015 that doesn't have a serious vibration issue - only occasionally at stop lights, but not often. If I trade in, I would only want another CRV, but I'm not sure about the 2016 and the vibration issue?? Anyone have any guess as to what the rattle/grinding noise could be??? My husband is a car expert and even he is stumped. Please help!!
