Hello just thought I would share my recent experience. I purchased a new to me 2014 CR-V 1.6 in November and took it for its first service this week. I asked the dealer to look at an issue of gearbox whine from about 60 - 75 MPH in 6th gear. Initially I was told it was a characteristic but after a drive with the service manager he made an enquiry with Honda. Apparently there is a known issue with a bracket near the gear lever which is transmitting noise back into the car. Honda are working on a fix but my car now has some insulation between the bracket and the car body and the whine seems to have disappeared. Which is good news to me although no idea how long before the official fix will be ready.
