Default My CRV and engine sounds

Hello,

I have a 2010 Honda CRV EXL 4WD which was made in Japan (vin number
starts with J). I noticed a huge difference in the way it accelerates
compared to the ones made in the US which I test drove on the car lot
before I bought mine. Is there something to this? The difference is
that the one I have is so much more quiet compared to the US ones
which are much more loud revving. Any ideas?

Thanks so much,

Jill

do NOT drive your car! Something is horribly, HORRIBLY wrong with it.
It is dangerous to drive. You MUST take it back to the dealer and
demand that they fix it so that it's right.

I'm not sure it's quite that serious. I recall hearing about a
technical service bulletin that came out concerning this. As I recall,
this has been known to occur when the Japanese assembly plant ran short
of timing belts and they used the American OEM belts. The additional
torque provided by those belts, coupled with the additional sound
deadening properties of the American belts in the Japanese units
stresses the transfer case. Any possible damage would be gradual rather
than catastrophic but still should be attended to. I would definitely
contact the dealership and demand that they make this right. They know
about the problem and should have notified Jill!

Apparently good sarcasm is lost on you....
As for Jill, she should put her CRV back in the box, and take it back to
dealer.
She's too ****ing stupid to be driving, let alone posting the same dumb-ass
cry for attention in a newsgroup.

I'm curious about the "huge difference in the way it accelerates compared
to the ones made in the US".
Does her car accellerate BETTER or worse than the US model?
Perhaps she got a JDM motor and ECU that should not have been in her US-
destinied vehicle.
(and doesn't meet US emissions specs,not that I care about that.)

Personally,I'd be GLAD I had a quieter,better acccelerating car than US-
standard. Perhaps Japanese domestic market(JDM) motors are built to more
exacting standards? Maybe they use better bushings and other materials for
their market? I dont know. Maybe they use a noisier exhaust system for US
markets,since the younger crowd likes that,and that reduces power for her
JDM auto. Who knows?
