Noisiest car I have ever owned
By heli_driver on


2012 Honda CR-V EX-L 4dr SUV AWD w/Navigation (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Purchased brand new (14 Months ago) with every option Honda offers.
This vehicle is the noisiest car I have ever owned. My Honda convertible S2000 was quieter than this CRV.

Road/tire noise, wind noise, engine noise and even noise from passing vehicles are not attenuated. Being mostly mid to higher frequency noise, this gives us both a headache. I question if Honda forgot the soundproofing in my car.

The Head Lights are very weak & easy to over drive.

At Hwy speeds the steering input is far too sensitive, making it squirrelly and dangerous feeling.

Even as a commercial helicopter pilot, the Navigation/stereo is not easy to use and key features do not work with the iPhone.

My 2013 Honda CR-V EX AWD is so quiet and smooth. I love it much more than my 2009 CR-V LX AWD
