2014 CRV Timing Chain and VTC "rattle" issue"

Asked by Mar 08, 2017 at 10:33 PM about the 2014 Honda CR-V

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have 2014 CRV. I had the "rattle" upon cold start
when I got the car. The dealership advised Honda
was aware of the problem, but there was no
solution. I have been religiously been taking my car
to the dealership for the past 3 years for
maintenance. Today I had multiple sensors go off
and immediately brought it in. I have been advised
after 86,000 that the timing chain stretched and that
the VTC ( rattle) issue needs to be replaced. This
car has seen almost all of its life as highway miles. I
am shocked and outraged that this is happening.
Anyone have this issue??

1 Answer

I have a 2012 CRV with the same issue. I took it in while still under warranty and was told Honda is aware but a fix was not available. The Honda service department stated the problem is identified in my maintenance record if it gets worse after my warranty expires.
