High Speed Wheel Vibration

Hi all - 2 cars, two posts in a row. 2011 CRV with 40k miles. Lots of folks post about wheel vibrations at high speeds, requiring balancing, dented rims, etc. My CRV gets some strong steering wheel vibration, but only at high speeds (65 mph+), and only when accelerating or maintaining speeds. When I coast at high speeds, the vibration stops. Hitting the gas again brings it back. It is not constant, which leads me to think the tires are balanced. I could get a Road Force balance if needed, but it doesn't feel like that's the issue.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Pretty low mileage for it, but the last shaker I had like that was from a CV joint.

CRV has a 100,000 mile warranty. Time to take it in for work. I have a 2013 , but have not experienced it yet. From your description, however, it DOES sound like a CV joint.

Honda gives 100 000 miles warranty?

OP, you MUST check wheel balance. If it's alloys, crimp on weights do not stay on alloy rim. Go for sticky.
My 06 CR-V was bought new with high speed vibration and pull to side. It turned out to be, after multiple trips to several tire shops, bad tire.

My 2011 Acura TL does the same thing (65,000 miles). I was afraid maybe the torque converter was the cause, but hadn't considered a bad CV joint. Is there a simple way to test the axle on the vehicle? There are no tears in the boots and they look nice and dry.

Close out Thread

Better late than never, but wanted to close out the thread that 3 of 4 CV joints were bad AND covered by Honda warranty. Thanks for the help.
