 Description of the problemThis is in reference to sb-09-010 that hundreds if not thousands of cr-v owners are experiencing spanning from 2012-2014 model years (other honda's such as the accord are also experiencing this issue all the back to 2008). Starting around 40,000 miles (after our 3 year/36k warranty expired of course) our vehicle makes a loud grinding noise on cold startups (after vehicle has been sitting for 2 or more hours). The longer the vehicle sits the louder the grinding noise is for the first startup. Honda has known about this problem for many years now (research it and you'll see for yourself) and has been complacent in coming up with a fix. How am i supposed to sell a vehicle that sounds like this? No one in their right mind would buy a vehicle that sounds like the engine is knocking or rattling. Where are the fixes for this honda? Honda, you're rapidly losing faith in your brand and your customer base is diminishing. You've already lost me as a customer (my wife is still being loyal since this cr-v is hers) and i've jumped ship to another brand of car that starts with an "s" and ends in a "ubaru". . At 50,000 miles my 7 months pregnant wife got stranded 200 miles from home because the alternator decided to crap out on her which resulted in the battery dying. Luckily a good samaritan gave her car a jump start and she reached her destination. Getting the alternator fixed which was diagnosed as something internal in the alternator, cost us over $600 to fix on a 3 year old car. An alternator should not be dying on a 50,000 mile or 3 year old car. We will be filing formal complaints with honda customer service in regards to the alternator and the loud engine rattle. Honda's quality in workmanship has drastically declined. I am through with buying any more honda's. Goodbye honda!
