Honda road noise

My wife lives Hondas! In fact, she won't have anything BUT a Honda! The only complaint I have is that every one we've had picks up a LOT of road noise when driving on rough-surface asphalt!

I'm not talking about damaged asphalt, just those roads that were finished with a rough surface instead of slick.

Are other vehicles the same way?

Our CRV definetly has a fair amount of road noise compared to the Taurus SHO we traded off but then there is a Bit of a difference in price.
Having said that, I took a 2016 Pilot for a spin the other day and for 50PlusK there was virtually no road noise. Nice car.
I suspect a theme here? The more you pay, the less road noise.

Our '07 CRV is the same way. Very noisy on those roads that look like they were recoated with pebbles. I think Honda finally decided to quiet their interiors down in 2015. At least on the CRV.

Our 13 CRV is much better than our neighbors 07 but still not great. $$$$$$

I'm guessing at the 50K in US$. Here, with our 60 cent dollar it is a Lot more. I just pull my hearing apps out and away we go.....
If you can secretly slip me the winning Powerball numbers, I'll buy us both a Loaded Pilot.

All of the Honda's we've owned (since 1988) have had lots of road noise. The '05 Ody even has a noise cancelling setup in it and I can tell when it kicks in. The '08 Civic is even noisier. Due to the DW's liver cancer we've been making lots of trips to Seattle and I won't drive the Civic on those 320+ mile roundtrips.

I suspected that too! Wonder if anyone has found tires that are quiet on these cars?

I agree with the tire statement. Here in the Great White North, we are mandated by law to have winter tires from Oct to Mar (they must have the little snowflake symbol for certification).
Summer tires are better but still above average. I'm going to replace the OEM Continentals with some Michelins come spring and see what happens.

Excessive road noise is a sign of under powered radio systems.

Joe-

Both our Hondas (2003 Element and 2009 Fit) have benefited from careful tire selection. I have even found some snow tires that are quieter than our summer tires. However, living where you do, you're not asking about snow tires!

I don't keep up on tires, so the best way I've found is to do some research on the Internet and (most importantly), find a tire salesman whom you can trust. I've even followed mine around as he's moved from company to company.

Asking about tires is like asking about car brands- some people have strong opinions. That said, our current summer tires are Yokohama Avid Ascends (Fit) and Dunlop Tiger Paw Touring (Element). Both are pretty quiet, considering. The Yokohamas are new to me, and I'm liking them a lot.

I was actually surprised not only about the amount of road noise, but the engine vibration in my CRV. They are definitely an acquired taste. I still like the car, but in terms of comfort, accessories and overall fit and finish I'm kind of missing my Nissan Murano. Especially since I've pretty much decided to put off indefinitely my plans to go with a 4-down towing package, which of course was the whole reason for buying this particular CRV . The Murano was getting a bit long in the tooth and I was probably going to buy a new car anyway before it was time for new tires and other maintenance items.

But I'm still a CRV fan. Had 90K on the Murano and expect to get at least that much from my CRV, even if a lot of it doesn't show because I'm towing it.
