Failure Date: 06/26/2014

Vehicle was 14 months old and was driven every 1-2 days. Vehicle had to be towed to dealership after a caliper "froze" to the right rear rotor after sitting overnight in the garage. Dealer reported that all four rotors were heavily oxidized and kept insisting that the car must have been sitting for many weeks or months. Dealer claimed there was nothing wrong with the brake pads and only resurfaced the rotors. Dealer repeatedly made false claim about Honda maintenance requirement that the rotors be cleaned every year.

Feb 2012 : purchased my 2012 Honda crv because it was flat towable. Sept 1 :left for a two month trip towing said car and using the blue ox patriot braking system. After following all the directions for blue ox and Hondas directions for the transmission, everything seemed fine. With exception of the battery going dead every 3-4 hrs of driving. Oct 6: the back brake sounded like it was scraping. Honda dealer said the pads were rubbing but didn't have any replacements. I was told they would be okay to make it back home. Oct in texas the brakes sounded like it was metal on metal. Took into a Honda dealership and was told that the brake pad was missing on the right rear, the caliper pins were missing, rotors needed to be resurfaced, and the parking brake calipers pins were missing. Everything replaced under warranty for both rear brakes. Car test driven, all brakes fine. Oct back home, brakes vibrating so took it to a Honda dealership for oil change and have them check the brakes. I was told all four of the brakes were shot burnt etc and parts would cost $5,000. 00. They said it would not be covered under warranty because I used an after the market braking system. They are blaming blue ox. Blue ox is blaming Honda. America Honda hdq were notified but they said since the dealership deemed it wasn't their fault they closed my case. Im the one stuck with paying as the insurance wont cover this either.

Noise in rear of car the dealership did a brake inspection and said the problem was caused by rear brake pads are stuck in the mounts and are scoring rear rotors. They suggested replacement of rear brakes clean and lube mounts and slides on calipers. This happened at 44,400 miles.

1. Started to hear metal on metal sound coming from the driver side rear wheel when brakes were applied. 2. The failure was a stuck brake caliper causing brake pads to wear down to metal. 3. Resurfaced rotors, replaced brake pads and unstuck caliper.

I purchased a "certified Honda" vehicle, a 2002 Honda crv in June 2005. I was told that the brakes, both front & rear passed pennsylvania inspection but did not pass Honda's certified inspection so they were replaced to make the vehicle a "certified Honda". (they were replaced on 6/1/05) I have had the vehicle for 1 year, took it for inspection on 6/12/06 to find out that the rear brakes are down to a 1/b or far below passing - completely gone! I have driven the vehicle under 7000 in the year that I have owned it. I called the original (and only other owner) of the vehicle. He told me that he had the same problem when the vehicle was under 1 year old. He was told that Honda knew that there is some kind of defect in the design that causes the rear brakes to wear extremely fast in the 2002 & 2003 crvs, especially in the northern states because of our winters. He was told that the brakes need to be greased to help prevent this- something I was not told when I purchased the vehicle. When I asked the service mgr at the Honda dealer about this, he said they suggest it be done every 7500 miles. I have not even driven 7000 miles on the car. If Honda is aware of this problem with the rear brakes, why hasn't there been a recall?? are they waiting for the brakes to fail and kill someone before they do something??.

The contact owns a 2005 Honda crv. The contact stated while driving at any speed and attempting to brake, the rear brake would lock, causing the calipers and rotors to overheat. The vehicle was taken to a local mechanic who performed a diagnostic that was unable to locate the exact cause for the brake failure. The local mechanic replaced the rotors and brake pads several times but the failure was not corrected. The rear brake continued to lock when the brakes were applied. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 1,000 and the current mileage was 85,000.

I own a 2002 Honda Cr-v which has a disk brake defect. All 4 disk brake calipers are developing corrosion inside of the pistions. The dealer replaced the rear pads and rotors because they had worn and frozen to the wear indicators after 13,000 miles. They stated that they were "insufficiently lubricated" from the factory and added more grease to take care of the binding condition. The front ones are now showing the same signs of failure after 15,000 miles. Is there a way to persue that the dealer replace all 4 brake calipers due to the corrosion defect? my concern is that the pistons inside of the calipers are rusting through and may fail, causing accident/injury.
