Honda CR-V owners have reported 69 problems related to wiper (under the visibility category).
Approx 6 months ago a crack started in the front windshield on the passenger side. It started from the top rubber gasket & was in alignment with the window visor holder. There were no visible signs of damage on the outside of the car. We had the window replaced by safelight window repair company. Now we have a crack starting on the drivers side front windshield & running down from the top rubber gasket & also in direct alignment with the visor holder. A considerable amount of pressure must be applied to seat the visor back into the holder. Both cracks happened during highway travel with no obvious signs of damage by a rock, etc. Both times the visors had been turned to the side window to block the sun.

I purchased a new 2015 Honda cv r. While driving in the rain my windshield wipers were not operating properly. They were leaving a stream of water across my windshield directly in front of my vision, distorting the view of the road. I took my car back to the dealership to have them check it. When I got my car back the mechanic told me he replaced the rubber in the blade and its good to go. With the next rain I saw that I had the same problem. I took my car back to the dealer, they worked on it for a while with out fixing the problem. I was then told that this condition is normal. I did not believe it. I told him to bring out another cr v to see if it had the same wiper problem. It did!!!! I talked several other cv r owners who are have the same dangerous condition and are hoping for a recall from Honda to correct this before something bad happens.
Driver's side sun visor will not stay in position. Drops down constantly. Will not stay up nor pushed forward against windshield. The owners forum has tons of crv owners with this problem. I contacted Honda and was told they do not guarantee that part! this is a major safety hazard. Honda knows it has issue with it's visors however will not issue a recall for the problem.

Drove about 30 miles in rainy weather with the wipers working perfectly fine at a steady speed, when suddenly I noticed that the wipers were sluggish. Then the wipers stopped working completely while it was raining and I was on the highway. I tried to get them to work but they wouldn't budge. The rear wiper was still working. I panicked as I thought I may have engine problems. I headed for the nearest exit. When I took it to the dealer for service check, they said that the wiper motor needed to be replaced. Defective wipers are a safety hazard as my visibility was impaired without the use of functioning wipers. Honda should pay for this repair as it is very costly over $500.
2014 Honda crv: in Feb 2015 windshield wipers mostly do not work at all or they work intermittently in cold weather. . . Especially dangerous and frightening when they stopped during several snowstorms allowing no visibility. After making a long drive to fort wayne don ayres ( and trying to find a day when both wipers and I were not working and that it was not snowing on the interstate) the wipers started working again after the crv was driven into their garage. Had to bring it back when wipers not working, we were told. In the meantime crv was not safe to drive in snowstorms. On second visit they discovered that the motor on the wipers had to be replaced. A little nuisance problem to them but very frightening to me when driving blind in snowstorms. Lucky not to have had a wreck or even a stroke from the frustration of spending so much money on a vehicle to stay safe in winter weather. . . Only to have nonfunctional wipers that make it undependable in winter weather. Hope this will be helpful to someone.

I. Headlights are terrible. I only drive occasionally at night. The high beam points too high and the low beam too low. I asked rep in service dept. At don jacobs, lexington, ky and he advised the headlights are set at factory. They could not do anything to adjust them. I don't think he even made out a report. But the more I think about it, Honda should have a "fix" for this problem. 2. Battery. Local temps have been -/+ zero outside. My Honda is parked in garage and temps in this cold weather in my garage is 34 degrees, average. . My Honda "groans" when starting, but so far has managed to get started. I have not mentioned this to don jacobs as I didn't think they would do anything about it. They would probably say "it was set at factory".

The window washer system was activated. The driver's side wiper arm assembly detached from the blade assembly, throwing the wiper blade off the car and dragging the remaining pieces across the windshield.
While driving in the rain the wipers were on delay and turned on completely by themselves. I tried to turn them off and they would not turn off. I turned them back to delay and eventually, they started to operate correctly. The incident re-occurs from time to time.
Windshield wipers – (wiper motor control?) - issue has been happening intermittently - but frequency of events is increasing -when lever is activated to wash windshield – the wipers continue to wipe – may or may not stop – sometimes have to turn car off when they are in down position -when lever is activated to intermittent mode – the wipers will periodically wipe 2, 3 or more times and then return to a single wipe and then the multiple wipes may start again -when lever is activated to normal or fast speed – the wipers work with no issues -rear windshield wiper – no issues – works normally.

This letter is to report my dissatisfaction with my 2014 Honda crv’s driver side, outside, rearview mirror. At the least, the distortion of this design is a distraction, at the worst it is clearly a safety issue with the inability of the driver to quickly determine what is being reflected in this mirror. Please offer a replacement mirror without the split designed reflecting surface.
Sun visor failure. This is a safety issue as it will no longer fold up or fold away. This causes a visual hazard and seems like a design flaw that has affected every Cr-v and accords eventually. Timing seems to depend on the # of times the visor is flipped, & thats why the passanger side is noted less often (flipped less frequantly). There are many online video fixes (youtube), but as there are many online blogs reporting this problem & is clearly a visual hazard I think this needs to be addressed by Honda & ntsb.
While I was on my way home from work, I decided to take the freeway (instead of the normal roads) back home. I was hitting speeds that were 60mph-65mph. It was until I was 15 minutes into my driving that I heard something snap in the front of my car and heard a dense whoosh. The hood of my car slams up against my windshield and I am completely blinded; I can not see in front of me. Thankfully, I use my rear views while I am in the middle of the freeway and manage to drive off to the shoulder. If I had been surrounded by cars or if this had happened during a heavier traffic period I might not have made it.

This has now happened twice, in early 2014 and early 2015. Driving on the highway in a snowstorm, the windshield wipers work fine for a while, and then rather suddenly the windshield ices up to a point that visibility is extremely poor. The wipers themselves fail, and no amount of defrosting/heat directed at the windshield will help. The only thing that helps is pulling off the highway and manually DE-icing them. The problem with that, of course, is that one is not always in the position to be able to do this, and certainly not immediately once the problem starts. The first time this occurred was in awful traffic in a snowstorm with my two daughters in the car. There were accidents all along our route, so even with visibility the driving was hairy. There was nowhere to pull over for a long period in order to fix the problem. It was without a doubt the worst and most frightening driving experience I've ever had. After that experience, I purchased and installed brand new wipers. They work great in the rain, and I was hopeful about their performance in snow. But then I encountered the problem again the following winter. Happily, on the second occasion I was able to pull off the highway relatively soon after the problem started. My guess is that it has something to do with the shape of the windshield, or with the depth of the well at the base of the windshield.
Driving the car day after snow storm. Wind shield/rear window covered with heavy layer of salt/dirt. No fluid would come out of windshield washer nozzles/rear window nozzles. Windshield was covered with so much salt that driving visibility was very limited. The nozzles worked briefly after the car was exposed to sunlight. Once the sun went down, the nozzles no longer worked. The windshield washer fluid/line appeared to be frozen. It has been very cold where we live and 5 days later no windshield/rear window washer fluid will spray out of nozzles. This is very unsafe and makes driving visibility very dangerous. The amount of salt on both the wind shield and rear window is excessive. The windows are white. How does Honda plan to fix this problem??? I plan to contact Honda dealer ship this week.

The windshield sprayer on the Honda Cr-v 2012 freezes under 30 degrees and does not work to clean the windshield. I can not drive my cr -v in the snow because visibility could be zero and I would not be able to clear the snow from my car. I just can not see out my windshield. You would think Honda would have a better design for there new Cr-v. In the snow storm, I had to open my driver's side window and drive home looking out that window to get home safely. I can not believe that in 2014 we can not have a car whose windshield sprayer worked properly in the snow!!!that is a safety issue.
While driving on un-crowded highway sunroof loudly exploded and rained glass into and outside the vehicle. Highway speed of approximately 65 mph outdoor temperature approximately 40 degrees. Passengers uninjured but very scared. Glass was blown out from inside to out. No indication of an impact was present. No other vehicles were present to cause impact. Vehicle was taken to local dealership where they explained it must have been a "tiny rock" that caused the impact so they would not repair or replace the defective part except at the owners expense. Serious safety issue with refusal directly from american Honda and local dealership to remedy.

I bought a 2013 Honda Cr-v vehicle a few months ago. I have notice that the sun visors are too short. I had to come to a complete stop several times at sun rise and sun set because I was blinded by the sun. I have owned a Honda van and a Toyota care and never had this problem where I live. I called the Honda dealer in frankfort, ky and they said no one else was having the problem. I call Honda customer service (nation wide) and they said no one had reported the problem and wanted me to go back to the dealer in frankfort. I went on the internet and found other people have had the same problem and tried to use after market solution which is a visor extender. I am 5' 8" tall. I would need to be over 6 feet in order for the visors to be effective. It either a low seat problem or a visor problem. You don't notice this when you first drive the car. I would not have bought the car if I knew about this problem. This is definitely a hazard that should be checked out.
