About the auto trans shudder common in all CRV's, mine only does it when trying to change into 5th gear. I use the car mainly around town & dont need 5th gear. Does anyone know of a way to utilise the "3rd gear hold" button to cut out 5th gear. IE, only allow the trans to shift from 1st then 2nd, then 3rd & finally 4th. Anyone?????? Tad

That 3rd gear hold is probably done with software programming so I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you waiting for a 'fix'.

My 1999 CRV with 370 000 km has had mild but noticable shudders come and go since new, and for all its life. Since it was a Gen 1 model, I just thought that Honda didn't do a very good job of integrating the engine to the drive train and integrating the drive train to the chassis. But internally and externally, Honda never admits to a mistake, so there are no mistakes to learn from and for the customer to benefit from.
