I have a new crosstour with 300 miles on it. AWD model

It has severe axle whine noise at 50 -55 mph.

Dealer says this normal(right)?

We don't have that issue. Take it to another local dealer, if you have the option, and get a 2nd opinion.

D'oh, missed that completely. We don't get 4wd models down here.

Thanks the fact that you don't have 4WD and don't have the 50-55 mph whine will help to diagnose.

I haven't seen a 4wd in LA yet. Not that we would ever need to consider it, but I'm very curious to see firsthand how they handle.

Ah. That's odd. I would have figured they are everywhere.

The vehicle handles,should be OK here in MI.

My only complaint is the axle noise, I am trying to find out more about the active sound control/cancellation and why it does not address the noise issue I have with my new Cross Tour

I went to another dealer and I got the same story(They all are like that/4WD).Well th

We don't have that issue. Take it to another local dealer, if you have the option, and get a 2nd opinion.
The second dealer said that the Honda crosstour with 4WD are all that way so I called customer relations in Calif and they are talking to my dealer for about a week now. I don't hold out much hope for Customer relations and Calif either.it would be good for a district rep to ride the vehicle fisrt hand

I had a Civic that I bought about 15 years ago that had some slight little issues. My dealer wasn't much help initially, but after speaking with Honda North America, they handled it very well. Now on some vehicles there truly are noises that are "characterstic of the vehicle" and there's no way around it, but it seems that a whine in a Honda like this would be something that shouldn't be there. I can't imagine the Acura ZDX making the same noises, especially for what they want people to spend on it, and the drivetrain should be the same.

maybe mine is going to be able to be fixed

Thanks,I am thinking that my Active Noise Control/cancelation system maybe not working correctly.
I am going to have it checked out,hope springs eternal.


My 4WD doesn't seem to have any whine problem...

I noticed the same noise on the FWD model yesterday on an extended road test of an in stock unit at the local dealership. It sounded like a final drive whine at steady speeds. It dis-appeared under 45mph and over 65 mph. I was unsure if it was final drive related as it was more sensitive to a specific speed and not a coast or power noise that would point to a set-up problen in the final drive. I will be anxious to see if it is on the new one that I take delivery of today and if it will go away with miles.

After wrestling our new ex-l navi away from my wife for an extended road test this weekend, I have found ours whines on decel only. It was not as bad as the demo we drove (it has over 200 mile already) so I am hoping it will fade away as more miles are put on the vehicle. Given the variation on when it occurs with 2 different vehicles it points to a probable set up on the final drive.

Whine Noise

Many moons ago I bought a brand new GM vehicle and from day one it had a rear end noise ( I don't recall if it was a whine or not) The problem was solved when they took the rear end apart and found a bearing with a hair line crack in the outer race of a bearing.
PS: My 4WD Crosstour has no noise issue except some tire noise and that's dependent upon different road surface.

Actually the crosstour and zdx drivetrains have virtually nothing in common. The crosstour uses hondas 3.5L V6, while the zdx uses the Acura-exclusive 3.7L. Crosstour has essentially the same 5-speed auto transmission as the accord v6, odyssey and pilot, while the zdx uses the new 6-speed auto. And the zdx uses Acura's Super Handling AWD, while the crosstour uses essentially the awd system from the cr-v and element. They're roughly the same shape and came out at the same time, but they really don't share anything under the skin. Just trying to correct a common misconception. =)

I drove one yesterday and heard no axle noise at all. (had only 100 kilometers on it tho)
Did you rectify the issue or is it just "normal" as the dealer said?
