Dealership Diagnosis

Local dealership diagnosed this as a binding issue with the front CV joints necessitating replacement of the front axles - which is covered under the powertrain warranty. Fix hasn't yet been made but I'll report back once it is.

Hello! New owner to a 2010 Crosstour EX-L V6 4WD. I noticed the shaking going into work as many of you did (Between22 and 27mph). If I had known the issue before driving it out of the lot, I would have not purchased this vehicle without the issue getting resolved.

Like many, Dealership did transmission update which did nothing. Then they kept insisting nothing was wrong like many of you heard. I was finally able to replicate the shaking with the tech in the car and his eyes was wide open.

Got the call today and they will be replacing drive shafts next week so we will see how this goes. Will update once it is done.

Had a similar issue where the car would surge at low RPM's and right around 25MPH, I fixed it by replacing the spark plugs. only the back three look to be bad causing a miss when some of the cylinders shut of in ECO mode. I just replaced all 6 and I was right around 70000 miles.

Hope this helps!

After the dealership replaced the drive shaft, I am sad to report that it is still fluttering. Is everyone just living with it now or are you guys still pursuing?

Did you try changing the transmission oil with Honda synthetic ATF DW-1 + adding the additive for torque converter shutter? Mine did the exact same thing and this was all I needed. Like you, the transmission update did nothing except empty my wallet.

Panthos, thanks for the suggestion. I will have my honda dealership do this and see if it helps. WHen you say "Honda synthetic ATF DW-1 + adding the additive for torque converter shutter"What additive should be put in the torque converter? Is it something I can do myself? My Xtour came with a 30 day warranty and still under warranty so I want to make sure Honda covers this.

If you want to do it yourself, this is what I used and you only need 1 bottle per fluid change. http://www.amazon.com/Gunk-M1410TS-Automatic-Transmission-Treatment/dp/B000CPJLEY

The mechanic at my Honda dealer highly recommended the torque converter additive which I purchased there at the dealership (but it was a different brand). I would just buy everything at the dealer ASAP and do it yourself or have them do it. If it does help it (and I think it will), then next time you can comparison shop online for the products and save a little. I have driven about 28K miles since I bought it used and the flutter has not returned (knock on wood) :eek: The ATF has been changed twice. Let me know the results (fingers crossed). As far as warranty goes, maybe if they do the service and it fixes the problem, then they might cover it? Worth a shot.

The fix seems to have cured the issue for my ride

I have 75k on my crosstour, and also have a vibration but mine has been at 70mph and up, dealer just diagnosed it today as the main drive shaft is bad.

At last. A fix. TSB

A TSB was issued on August 30, 2016 concerning what Honda calls the "judder" at speeds between 20 and 45 mph.

It is Service Bulletin 16-066 which says to "update the A/T and PGM-FI software and replace the automatic transmission fluid."

They have extended the warranty portion that covers this if your car is within the age and mileage parameters. You VIN number is required to verify these things.

So far, it seems to have worked for me.

Huh??? Not all vibrations are the same! Most of all of the threads you posted this in this was normally the first thing done by the dealer... Was for me as well. And ended up not fixing the issue.

In my case, a faulty engine mount was found and that fixed it for the most part.

For many owners bad front axles are to blame as well.... try and find some for a Crosstour... they aren't out there... from Honda or the aftermarket.. Hmmmmm....

I suspect your problem will come back... when it does... please keep it in one thread... thanks.

First off, Hello all. This is my first post. I found this site after feeling a couple off things with my CT.

Ok, I've read through this thread and at least have a few things I can reference for my dealer to look a... My CT is Honda Certified Pre-Owned full until 48k and power-train til 100k.

I little info on my CT. 2014 V6 AWD. Bought it July 19 this year with 10507 miles on it. now has 15567 miles on it. I love this car except for the things being talked about in this thread. I get a shudder at around 20 - 25 miles per hour but while just holding that speed or very slight acceleration. I get a slight shifty feel at around 25 to 45 miles per hour but I am deducing from this forum that's just the way the VCM motor fells and I will get used to it.

Couple things I have that I have not seen addressed occur when I'm starting in reverse.. If I am in reverse and turning the wheel hard in either direction to get out of parking spots i feel/hear a vibration. Like a low rumbling vibration. It doesn't shake the car but i can definitely feel it and my old mechanic says he can too. Its a bit worse in reveres right then left.. Then when I go forward under normal acceleration I hear short vibe humm after driving about 30-40 feet.

Thanks everyone for your past information and for anyone that might have more insight into the vibration when I move in reverse.

Pete

Well, a possibility regarding the problem of your steering wheel in reverse may have something to do with the power steering pump. Have you replaced any fluid in it ever, and if so are you SURE that you used the stuff marked as "for Honda?" Doesn't necessarily have to be Honda brand, but from my experience, using fluid that is not has a chance of actually shredding the entire power steering pump system.

Is there some way for you to have your power steering system looked at? What you are describing sounds kinda similar, though much quieter, to what happened to my old Accord when I had to replace that pump.

Just got this CT 2 months ago. It was Honda Certified. I haven't added anything except gas thus far. I will keep this in mind though.

Thanks!
