2022 Honda CR-V Problems and Top Complaints – Is Your Car A Lemon?

Electrical system and engine issues are among the top complaints

Families have loved SUVs over the past few years, so it seems likely that the 2022 Honda CR-V is automatically set up for success. Plus, the automaker claims it offers a “design that raises the bar.” On the other hand, customers are struggling with a defective electrical system and malfunctioning engines.

Problems with the Electrical System

All modern cars should be equipped with highly-effective electrical systems, not just for safety but also for convenience and entertainment. Sadly, the 2022 Honda CR-V can’t boast of having a great system, especially with the customer complaints.

Here’s one posted to KBB. “I have less than 500 miles on this vehicle and had to recalibrate the TPMS 3 times though the tire pressure was correct. The big disappointment, at 432 miles the infotainment system is all grey. No backup camera, ability to control settings, music, temperature controls, etc. I’ve tried the reboot (push on/off radio button), pulled the fuses associated with this part of the vehicle and even disconnected the battery which are all documented ‘fixes’ in prior models. Nothing works, just a grey screen. I have an appointment setup with the dealership but an utter disappointment at this point. MPGs seem to be 5mpg overstated which I expected since my last Honda (2012 Accord) was similar. My Fords, Chevys, Mazdas, etc would be very close to stated MPGs but Honda seems to overstate.”

Many people don’t know that Honda has been slapped with lots of class-action lawsuit discussions in the past. In fact, it wasn’t that long ago that Honda was part of a group of automakers that intentionally failed to tell drivers about defects in the seatbelt and airbag electronics. Because of this defect, the systems wouldn’t work in head-on collisions, leaving people in danger. In fact, a 636-page complaint was filed with more than thirty plaintiffs stating their case. This doesn’t seem like a brand worth spending money with in hopes that the issues have been resolved and that Honda is going to be suddenly honest going forward about defects.

Problems with the Engine

Aside from the electrical problems, there have also been many complaints about how loud the engine is, thereby causing worry that something is wrong.

Here’s one to read from a customer writing on the KBB website. “The engine can be a bit noisy when accelerating from a stop.”

For now, Honda has issued no statement about the motor troubles. It’s as if the company is denying that there is an issue, despite customers and auto publications agreeing that it is happening. To truly “raise the bar,” it’s clear that Honda must take one more look at this “design” that is constantly praised. In the meantime, customers might choose a different SUV brand to hit the roads with – maybe one that is quiet enough to enjoy the conversation of the occupants in the cabin.
