Often when I am backing out of my driveway in the morning the car kinda vibrates a bit and I have the feeling that I backed over something. It almost feels like the brakes grabbing. Has anyone else had this issue? It works fine after that but I experience this too often to ignore.

You don't mention your year, but many Hondas do an ABS test the first time you go more than 10 - 12 MPH.

What you feel is the ABS pump working (and 'touching' the brakes). No worries.

(Begs the question, HOW FAST do you back out of your driveway? LOL)

Yes, same thing with my 2018 EX-L. Every time I back out of the garage. Distressing.

It is a 2016 and I am backing out very slowly.

Thanks for the additional info.

Gonna be difficult to troubleshoot on a Forum, but perhaps it is a 'dry' sway bar link or loose bushing.

Sway bar links have been found to be loose from the factory, and bushings (such as the F or R sway bar mains) have been known the move when they should just twist.

Possible diagnostic method is to spray with silicone lube. Then if the noise goes away, you may have found the issue.

Some brakes adjust them selves when applying brakes while backing. It will make a noise and a vibration. This is only on drum brakes.

I have 2007 Crv and I had that grinding noise in reverse backing out of my driveway, or parking, and it was the differential gear oil that had to be changed.

There may be an issue with your rear differential.... has the diff. oil been changed recently?

My 17 has same noise when backing out of garage. Only driver side front. Have taken it to two different dealers and both said it was normal shifting of the caliper. I don't think the caliper should be shifting and I don't like the noise but have gotten used to it after two and a half years.
