I have a 1999 Honda CR-V. At about 45 to 50mph there is a violent vibration that appears to be on the right front. Also if I drive it at about 30mph and let go of the stirring wheel the stirring wheel moves back and forth slightly even though it holds the road well. I have nearly new Goodyear tires on it and have had the tires balanced and rotated. This did help the problem. A Honda tech told me that it could be an out of balance axil. Has anyone else experianced this problem.

I have a 2002 crv. I just got new tires and new rims at 70,000 miles.
The car shimmys at 60 to 70 mph but the problem is intermittent. I suspect the half axle shafts are bent. I talked to the tire dealer and he was at a loss. He said it was highly unlikely the rims or tires were out of balance or the rims were bent. I would suggest have the runnout checked on the rims...tires and brake rotors. Rebuilt half axle shafts are $75 at rockauto.com plus shipping and core returns. The problem has to be somehow related to the front axles...rotors...tires or rims. Interesting. I jacked the car up and ran it at 65 mph and it started to shimmey and vibrate. visually is looked like the tires were out of round but they were brand new!?. It's possible the goodyear regatta tires are cheaply made and slightly out of round. I might try having the tires shaved and true up.

I have a 2002 Honda CRV and am also experiencing front (right) end vibration. I noticed it at about 45 mph. I took it one one mechanic and he said I needed new shocks and struts for $500. I decided to get a second opinion. It's in the shop now and the mechanic said he was going to change the differential fluid??? I have no idea, but it's interesting that I am not the only one with this problem.

Did any of you fix your problem?

If you have a 4WD model, you should take a look at the wear on your tires. Even the slightest differential in diameter between tires can cause the rear transfer case to engage/disengage intermittently, causing the feeling of vibration or chatter. This is the only thing bad about the Honda RT 4WD system ... the tires and rims must be well-matched. This might not be your problem, but it's worth looking into. Hope it helps.

I happened to read these threads and wanted to add something that no one else has mentioned. If anyone has had a shake in the wheels after buying new rims, make sure that the hub rings are exact. If they aren't the car will shake since the rim won't be lined up exactly. Also if your mechanic balanced the tires with only the inside weights it will cause a shake at high speeds, they should always have a weight on the outside and the inside. It is a lot more acurate.

99 CRV shimmies ocassionaly at front end drivers side. Speeds habout 28mph to 38mph.
Recent balancing and rotation of tires with about 6,000 wear did not change condition.
Weights on outside and inside of wheels.
Mileage 72,000. However problem has persisted during life of vehicle only became worse after five week period of no use of vehicle.

It's strange to read these threads. Good to see I have not lost my mind.. 2005 CRV 40,000 some thing miles. This car has spent more time being worked on for a passenger side shake - ect, what ever you want to call it. But there is more. There is a squealing noise out of the front end when you apply the breaks very lightly. Now, Honda replaced the right strut(among several other parts on past visits). Shake went away, squeal went away. If anybody has been down this road I would like to know.
P.S.- My wife has had the car back for 7-10 days and tells me the problem is back..

I'd suggest you have your dealer read a Honda maintenance bulletin #07-024 having to do with a problem with the rear differential. I had a bad vibration and it appears the All Wheel Drive feature in the diffential can malfunction causing a rahter annoying vibration. The fluid needed to be changed and Honda said the clutch plates in the differential needed to be burnished. there is a procedure your dealer should follow to do this.

I've had a problem that sounds very similar to these comments. It's a "shimmy", which in the past i would guesss alignment or tire problem, however the mechanic ruled out alignment and i had new tires and had since rotated them. He replaces a wheel that was out of round and the problem got better but still seems there, but it only exists at 60+ mph.

Honda has A Technical Service Bulletin that was issued after all of these cars got way past the warranties. It states that the bolts on the front upper/inner control arm bushings were incorrectlythreaded and did not properly squeese the bushings. I checked mine and indeed they have been moving around a bit much with the shimmy. Honda has the corrected bolts for $2.48 a piece and you will need 4. It takes about 1.5 hours at home. Enjoy your smooth ride.

Have you taken your car to an independent tire/front end shop, or just the dealer? There are lots of causes of shaking and vibrations on a car: struts and bushings (as you've replaced), out-of-round tires or rims, drive shafts/axles, brake problems, even simple things like incorrect or uneven tire pressure. A good shop should be able to find it.
