2012 Honda CRV’s are notorious for having problems. I mean notorious. A large percentage of them end up in the garage, and that’s a fact. After spending hours and hours at the dealership trying to figure out what the problem was with my car, and seeing pictures of the wrecked CRV, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s the clutch that needs to be replaced.
The problem is that there are many clutch issues that can cause a CRV to lose power or even stop idling. This is because it’s very common for the clutch to be on the inside of the car rather than in the center. It’s a common problem that can cause power loss or even stalling on the highway. Honda says it will be back on line within a day or two, but I’m not holding my breath.
The first thing to do is to disassemble the car. The engine, transmission, and clutch should all be separated from the body, then the clutch should be removed and dropped into a bucket of ice. The transmission needs to be fixed and cleaned of debris first. It should also be checked for free wheeling and any other issues that can cause the crv to lose power. The crv should be inspected to see if any fluids are leaking.
All parts should be reassembled and the crv should be tested for free wheeling. If the crv still loses power after this, the car will be towed to the local shop where the free wheeling issue can be diagnosed.
If free wheeling is confirmed, a new crv will be ordered and the new one will need to be tested again. The crv will need to be adjusted to correct the free wheeling issue and then reassembled. The reassembly of the crv will be done in the shop. It is recommended that an independent mechanic inspect the free wheeling for free-wheeling issues prior to the reassembly.
Honda has been known to do this on occasion. The new 2012 Honda CRV’s free wheeling issue seems to have been corrected and a new crv has been ordered. The reassembly is expected to be done in the shop, but Honda has not yet confirmed the free wheeling issue was fixed.
Honda has not yet released a statement on the free wheeling issue, but it’s been known to happen when new cars are reassembled and the free wheeling issue is not repaired. The problem should be rectified and the new 2012 Honda CRV should be ready for its second road test.
The 2012 Honda CRV, shown here to showcase a fun new trailer for the 2012 Honda CRV, has been repaired and is on its way to being on the road. It will be on my car’s website next week, but I’m waiting for the website to update so it can better show up on the site.
The 2012 Honda CRV is a fun car, but it’s been known to have problems with free wheeling and its now being repaired in order to prevent the problem from happening again.
In case you were wondering what a free wheel is, it’s basically a term used in racing to describe when the car is in a corner and seems to change direction all of a sudden without warning. The worst part about the free wheeling is that it often happens in a straight line. The car has to come to a complete stop and then start again, and sometimes can’t get enough power from the engine to do it.
