I have noticed on several occasions especially during parking that unlike any of my previous vehicles the CRV will sometimes lurch forward as I ease my foot off the brake a little and try to move in closer into a parking space.

It feels like the CVT is in a slightly higher gear than needed and once the brake is loose enough it surges forward 6 or so inches before dropping down to the lowest gear and moving more predictably like a regular automatic. The odd part is that it only happens sometimes:

Anybody else have this problem?

If it lurches get to the dealer you may have an issue, if you know how to fix even better.

I have observed an annoying lurch when creeping along in traffic. When stopped with foot on brake, the RPM is around 600. As I take my foot off the brake, the RPM jumps about 400 and the car jumps/lurches forward. Normally it isn't bothersome, but in traffic that's creeping along it is annoying.

I have not noticed in my travels.

posts like this remind me how much I miss a driving a manual.

I've noticed a similar problem when I make my last little creep into the garage. If I let up just a tiny bit from the brake when stopped, the CRV seems to lurch just enough for me to notice.

Yep that's it! It's kind of frightening the first time it happens. I have gotten use to it, so I kind of keep back a few more inches than normal before easing off the brake.

That just wouldn't work, as you'd have to drive on the left side of the road! Or you could deliver US mail!

I know exactly the lurch you are talking about. When I pull into my back alley way there is a fairly substantial (although smooth) upward transition, and I always come at it very slowly, around 3-5 mph. When I am slowing down to that speed, I experience the lurch almost every time. The CVT can't seem to make up it's mind where it wants to be in the RPM range when slowing down to that low speed but not coming to a full stop. I have an LX btw.

Don't think it has anything to do with the CVT.....the Honda ECU programming "blips" the throttle. See the link in post #8.

I'm thinking TC lockup. Unlike a conventional A/T, all it needs to do is get the car moving from a complete stop. After that, direct coupling throughout the entire rev, torque, and power band is fine.

Only thing similar I've noticed is starting off cold (regardless of weather) backing out of driveway, shifting to D and a slight hesitation before it moves forward. Has not got worse since new (4 mos.) but is consistent under those conditions. Will be interesting to see if it is worse in Winter.
