Default Problems w/ CR-V's rear diffs and eng oil leaks ?

Hello -

I had been considering an Element but now believe maybe a 4wd CR-V may
be in order. However, in researching the CR-V, a few alarming points
keep coming up :

1) Bad rear differentials on '07's. Seems like loads of trouble here.
Bad lube ? There was a recall (beginning of Feb ?). Is this problem
cleared up ?

2) Seems like a large number of engine oil leaks (on '07's) and appears
to be from the rear main seal. It sounds like the motor must be yanked
to repair. This is not good. Anybody know more on this ?

3) Tons of complaints regarding the warning light on the tire pressure
monitoring system (keeps coming on). Some people are taking their CR-V's
back 3 or 4 times trying to resolve.

Any input on any of these issues would be appreciated.

No need to post, the answers are already there.

Problems are greatly overblown.

Ignorance (on the part of the vehicle owner and dealer techs) of a new
system always makes a simple indicator "ON" seem like a big problem. It
isn't, once the system is understood.

I guess it's time for the owner (and dealers) to learn what the word
'COLD' means, in regard to 'cold' tire pressure.

Read page 3 of this recent Service News bulletin.

Curly - thanks for the link. I see another recent Honda dealer
publication talking about replacing the rear main seals on new engines
with the leaks. It looks as if the leaks develop within a 100 miles or
so of delivery. You are saying the problem is overblown. Do you mean
that these leaking seals are rarely encountered ?
I don't mean to be obsessing about this, but I'm preparing to retire and
want to buy a vehicle that will last me a long time. Somehow the vision
of a mechanic yanking out a brand new motor from my new $25,000 CRV to
replace a rear main seal makes me shudder.

---------------------------------

It's not like there's a million of them. One supplier sells a few
hundred bad seals to Honda. Honda makes it good by replacing the seals,
but a few hundred people have to leave their baby at the shop for a day
or two. That's what warranty is all about.

The internet makes the problem seem more prevalent.
