I have the same problem as ounou. Petrol manual vtec , only had the car 2 months and it has been back in 3 times.
When the engine is cold under light acceleration from 1500 rpm to 2500 rpm in 3 rd or 4th gear there is a judder or misfire. Sadly the dealer is 30 miles away so the engine is warm by the time it gets there. Even leaving the car for 2 days so they can try it cold they say there is no problem. Myself and my partner can make it happen every time we drive it! They have loaned us a vetc petrol manual and it has no problem.
Today they phoned up and said it was our driving style, we should leave the car in 2nd gear upto 30 mph, ie about 3600 rpm then we wouldn’t have a problem!!
Going up tomorrow to get car back, as far as we are concerned it is unserviceable, have asked for general manager to be available so that I can demonstrate the problem.
Keep you posted.

My HR-V guzzles fuel when the engine is cold (watch the trip mpg steadly climb from a low (~15 mpg) start) but it does run smoothly at your preferred revs range. I consider over 3000 rpm for use only when extra power is needed.

I also turn off the heating system for the first couple of miles to help get the engine warmed up (but sometimes need to use the aircon-based demist to clear the windows).

Ok. I have very similar problems like you exept the juddering occurs with both cold and warm engine but seem a bit more noticeable when cold. Searched the whole web for this problem but not finding any solution for it though many had the same problem. Please let me know what Honda has to say if you hear something from the guy.

My Honda HRV 1.5 cvt petrol executive is going for service next week,this is covered by guarantee service to repair problem with "misfire" next week.
Dealer had to get a repair kit to resolve this problem.He explained what to repair by phone,soot or deposit is staying in the exhaust recycling system and EGR valve is not working properly.Garage is going to clean manifoil and EGR inside and also put an engine injection claning liquid into yhe petrol tank.Unleaded 95 octane petrol in Norway is diluted with E10,10 % bioethanol,this could be the reason to this fault.......
My fingers crossed that this repair fix my annoying problem

This is gonna solve your problem for sure. Had this exact thing done on my hrv. Deposit on intake valves due to 95e10 fuel and snail driving 😁. Problem solved after this and gas mileage back where it belongs. Completely different car. Everyone with these problems should try this! SOLVED!

2 months since my HRV 1.5 went for Honda guarantee service for this problem.Repair took 3-4 hours,involving cleaning of intake manifold.EGR system.
I am very happy with the result,motor is running very smooth now,I have also changed to a better petrol brand.
Honda dealer add some kind of Redex in tank,and I have to empty the bottle in August.
Try to change my driving style lately ,with more speedy acceleration when possible.
