2007 Honda CR-V 4dr SUV

166-horsepower 2.4L I4 5-speed automatic AWD

50000 mi US $115 VSA (vehicle stability) warning light kept appearing and it became difficult to take car out of park. Dealer found that brake pedal sensor was faulty. Replaced it, now car runs fine. It took three repair trips to find this. 
9000   rotors needed to be resurfaced 
9000   Symptom: Loud grinding sound from left rear brake. Cause: Frozen caliper caused premature pad wear (to nothing). Fix: Caliper freed up; both sets rear pads replaced; rotors resurfaced. 
23000 US $250 Frozen caliper on left rear brake required new rear pads and rotor resurfacing. Second time this has happened in less than 25,000 total miles. Honda has no explanation; claims caliper itself is OK.

2005 Honda CR-V 4dr SUV

160-horsepower 2.4L I4 5-speed automatic AWD

48000 mi   Caliper stuck and burned up brakes. Replaced caliper and pads. 
58000 US $690 when I had tires rotated at tire place they told me I needed brakes so I took it to my regular mechanic who agreed and did the job 
20000 US $240 Noisy rear rotor. Dealer said it was harmless. Goodyear, installing new tires, said many OE rotors are "too light," my left rotor had a deeply rusted spot and replacement of rear rotors was optional functionally but would eliminate annoying noise. 
41300   Needed rear pads and rotors plus scheduled maintenance 
44000   Front pads and rotors 
47120 $480 Replaced brake pads, turned rotors.
