new 2015 CRV won't start?

Cathy Vyvyan

Asked by May 28, 2015 at 07:20 PM about the 2015 Honda CR-V EX-L AWD

Question type: General

Just bought a new 2015 CRV. Picked it up Tuesday night & wouldn't start Wednesday. It
was towed to the shop & they think it's just the battery.  I was able to program the radio,
phone book, seat, all that digital stuff and the lights on the dash lit up, it made noise but
just wouldn't turn over. Battery really? Is that possible?

Could be,but the good thing is it,s under waranty,


Sounds suspicious to me. As popular as the CRV is, I'm thinking that the ones actually made/assembled in Japan probably stay there. I will never buy a Japanese car that isn't assembled there. Your CRV was likely to have been assembled at their plant in Ohio (that thought scares me). A failed battery on a brand new vehicle? Seems unlikely to me. Sounds like BS to me....I'd be inclined to get ANOTHER CRV from this Dealer (don't let them give you the same one back) or just back out the deal entirely and get a Toyota RAV-4.

Hey Cathy! What was the outcome of this situation? Don't leave us hangin'!

They tried to tell us it was a fluke & may or may not happen again. We held our ground and got a different one. Thanks for your input!

you have to be careful where you parked your car and where you put the remote key. When they are close together, the signal drained the battery down overnight. Try to put your car far away from your key so they won't exchange signal overnight.

My son sent this site to me. I have the 2015 CR-V EX and have many issues with it, to the point I wrote to the VP Corporate Honda & GM. Today's issue. I left a lunch meeting and my 7 month old car would not start. AAA said it was the battery. Either they installed an "older" battery at the time of purchase, or else there is a parasitic drain on the battery from somewhere within the car. There is a litany of issues with this car, and most cannot be "fixed", as they are inherent within the manufacturing. Give me the older model Honda that was quality, and had stringent oversight on the assembly line.

We bought a new Honda from the Honda Ocala, Fl dealer. We have had the problem of the car not starting TWICE. A gentleman who was sent from Honda USA to start it tried to sell us a new battery. I refused and the car suddenly started. Took it to a mechanic and said the battery was excellent. I am beginning to think this is a manufacturing defect that Honda does not want to address.
