Problematic transmission

2013 Honda CR-V LX 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


We've had the CR-V for about 5 months & ever since the car was delivered it has vibrated between 1800 & 2200 RPM.
It is most noticeable between 55 & 65 MPH.
At low speeds there is no vibration, but once the transmission shifts into high, then the car rumbles.
I've brought it back to the dealer 3 times, & they acknowledge the problem & say that it is charachteristic of the CR-V.
One of the service team leaders said the problem is also on the Accord 4 cylinder. It just appears that the transmission shifts too soon.
It's really frustrating.
Don't be in the passing lane if you're in Econ mode & accellerating up a hill! The non-highway mileage averages around 24 mpg.
