Rack & Pinion failure
By bryanweston on


2008 Honda CR-V EX-L 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


My 2008 Honda CRV has to have the steering rack replaced after 5 years / 70,000 miles. Seems premature. Costly..$1600. This is my first and last Honda. Low quality, loud road noise, not what I expected from a Honda. AC went last month. Should have bought that Hyundai with 10 year/100,000 mile warranty.

I'm right there with you. Mine only made it 10k more miles before having rack and pinion problems. I thought this CR-v model was the one I'd drive until the wheels came off, but now I'm having my doubts. This problems definitely needs to be on a recall notice. Onto Toyota products, I guess.
