I love my 2007 CR-V EX-L (AWD) ... I really do. She's making me nervous about her long-term reliability, though.
First, I'm in the original rear-differential group, and while I've managed to get them to flush and fill the rear, they haven't replaced the clutch pack, yet.
New issue: A few days ago, my VSA (Vehicle Stability Assistance) light came on, along with the triangle-exclamation symbol light. Having read the manual, I knew the first thing to do, was to safely come to a stop, and stop/restart the engine, to reset the system. All was dandy, as the light didn't come back on, after restarting.
I called the dealership, and they said if it starts doing it on a regular basis, then to bring it in.
Two days later, it happened again. This time though, after I restarted it, I couldn't get the transmission out of park. Somewhere in my moment of "what in the H3ll? antics", I did something that managed to release the transmission lock. I carefully drove her home, and made an appointment with the dealer for today.
Taking her to the dealership today, I had to get gas, so of course, a) the VSA light came on, before I even left the neighborhood, and b) she got stuck in park again, when I tried to leave the gas station. It was during this particular lock up, that I realized it was some specific action with the brake pedal, that was releasing the lock on the transmission.
The dealership has called back, to state the VSA and transmission issue are related, as the brake-pedal position sensor that had gone bad, and it affects both systems. They're keeping her until it's fixed - which should be tomorrow, when they get the part in.
Just thought y'all might want to know, in case this becomes a more wide-spread problem.
Done any very hard braking?
