Icon2 Intermittent front end vibration 2005 CRV

Hello I just joined this forum and it looks like it will be a great resource.


I have a 2005 Honda CRV and get an intermittent vibration in the front end when going anywhere from 35-49 mph. Usually on straight, smooth road. Lasts for say 10 seconds then stops. New, balanced tires. Alignment is good. No work has ever been done to the front end, never has been in an accident. Usually when I am going at constant speed or under slight acceleration. Happened once when I was going through a gentle right curve on the highway, but instead of seeming to be in the center or rhs of front end, then was on the left.


I am taking it to the dealer tomorrow to see what they think. Would like to know what the thoughts are from members of this forum as to what it may and may not be, and what to expect from dealer.....thx.

Expect the dealer to rip you off, unfortunately. At least, thats been my experience with DFW area Honda dealers.

Is it 4WD?

Check the driveshaft running to the rear of the vehicle, notorious for U-joint failure and will vibrate the vehicle front and rear, depending on which joint goes first.

I had a similar issue. I concluded it was the front end struts and the tie rod ends. The rubber bumpers were cracked and beginning to leak grease. Problem fixed.

Hi GDL,

any updates on this problem? I just bought a 2005 CRV, it drives beautifully but every now and then I get a vibration through the front end, lasts about 2-3 seconds then its gone. It is intermittent and has occurred at varying speeds, generally under light acceleration I think.

Would be very grateful to hear if you ever got to the bottom of it.
