Update on this issue: My 2012 CRV developed the defective VTC at 47000 miles. I have spoken to my Honda Dealer, and Honda USA 6 times. "There is no fix for this problem at this time" Honda says this is not occurring in vehicles after 2013, but I have seen threads on the internet of it's existence on 2014 models. I tried to lemon law my CRV but because Honda will make no attempt to fix the problem which is worsening, it doesn't qualify. The mechanic at Honda told me if the noise continues more than a few seconds don't drive the car as engine failure could occur. I asked the sales manger at my dealer if he would be able to sell this car from his used Honda inventory, but got no response. I have file complaints with NHTSA, and the attorney general of Pa. Honda is IMHO clearly not honoring their warranty. This defect potentially affects 10's of thousands of cars conservatively.
honda tells me that there is still no fix, BUT they say vehicles released after 2013 are not the same. Honda is saying a Giant #$#$# to thousands of Honda owners
