CRV: 2011 Honda CRV has extreme road noise when you go over

This answer was rated:

2011 Honda CRV has extreme road noise when you go over a rough road OR wash board road. Dealer says it is normal road noise. I also have 2012 Nissian Rough and it is no noise in it like that.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!


If the dealers are stating that the noise is normal then I would ask them to take you for a ride in a new one to prove that the noise is there. If the noise isn't there on a new or newer vehicle then you've proven to them that there is a problem, or if the same noise is actually there then you know you have nothing to worry about on yours. If you've had the vehicle since it was new and this noise is a new development then it's not a normal condition.


If the other shop hears a noise that they don't believe is normal but can't find the source of the noise then using Chassis Ears will help to find it. Chassis Ears is a system that uses microphones that clamp on different locations around the vehicle and they transmit to a box where the user can listen to the different channels to see where noise is the strongest.
