Reliable — This car has all the important components of a dependable and practical car. Handling could be better but wider tires make a big difference. Gas millage is very good and if you are used to 4 cylinder cars this car will never feel like it lacks power. It also drives and handles very well on dirt roads.

2001 Honda Cr-v — For a small car-based SUV, the interior is very roomy and flexible. The flat cabin floor makes the front seats feel spacious. I can carry 8' lumber inside the vehicle with ease. We bought the car used in 2004, had a few weeks for a shake-down period and then took it on a 12,500 mile road trip without a hitch. Since we had a baby a year ago, we just added a Thule cargo box to the roof rather than trading up to a larger vehicle. We really like the car.

Pros

Surpisingly quick & good handling in a large, safe car

Cons

A little thirsty on fuel

Lovely Car - Would Definitely Purchase Another One — Performance - For a larger car, it accelerates well and handles well with the automatic 4wd system kicking in. Build Quality - For a 9 year old car, it is in remarkably good condition with very little in the way of repairs / rattles etc - leak from windscreen seal and rattle from heat shield, but both minor. Appearance - Fairly dated inside now, but clean and smart. Outside looks lovely - if you're into 4x4 type cars. Cost of Ownership - Only owned for a couple of months and, having moved up from a Fiat Grande Punto, this is obviously more thirsty on the petrol, probably averaging around 30-35 miles per gallon, which isn't bad for it's size. Nothing spent on maintenance yet (touch wood) and should prove to be very reliable. Fun Factor - If you like 4x4 cars, but won't actually be doing that much offroading, this car is for you. Personally, I think it's fantastic to drive

Dependable, Cheap, Safe Winter Suv — It's been a great car. I have the 5-speed manual and I love it. Mine has 223,000 miles right now and I barely any maintenance. I live in Wisconsin and this vehicle has saved my ass on more than one occasion. Not all that powerful though; getting to highway speeds kind of annoys me. And it's not the greatest looking SUV I have ever seen, but that's just an opinion I guess. Overall it is a great car, and I would recommend it.

Great Car But Bad Engine Engineering — I would probably go with a newer CRV and hope that Honda has fixed the problem, which i think was due to the cylinders or valves. Once they start losing vacuum pressure, they start to fail. The engine light was always on.

I Would Love To Have A New One But No Table And They Are A Little Smaller — I love me a Honda- my second CR-V The first one was a 1997-love a CR-V lots of room- has it own style. minor repair, JUST CHANGE oil 3,000 miles. gas mileage is great for me. it takes me skiing,camping around town and you can't bet the 4 wheel sensor, in the rain or snow.

Her Car — My wife's car. She loves it because its easy to get into or out of, but with a car seat for our son installed, there's not that much room inside. I'd like to put on heads and an exhaust, but she won't let me!

This Car Is For Those Who Have A Tight Budget In My Opinion — this car will save you soo much money on gas, especially if you drive alot like me, in 1 year i put on about 60k kilometers and i am impressed with how far i get and how much gas is required to get there. the car definatly lacks power and i do maintain my crv really well with on time oil changes and constant washing of my washable air filter. in the winter i cant complain because i have all season michelin harmony and i got stuck at one point only because a plow truck plowed alot of snow in front of my car. but all you have to do is put it into reverse and then drive again and if you are stuck on the spot you just have to turn the wheel back and forth all the way while in drive or reverse constantly and eventually break free. oh yea considering i live in canada but i bet a set of winter tires will make a huge difference but ill find out this winter because im considering some michelin X ice tires or bridgestonre blizzak. its a nice all around vehicle that will get you from point A to B while looking nice saving you money on gas and getting there without a problem. and honda is well known for reliability and im loving it. the ride quality isnt so great but at 170 kph i dont feel any vibration but mabe some wind noise but i would say thats normal for a vehicle that wasnt meant to go so fast. i dont really like the 4 speed automatic transmission either because it doesnt shift so smooth especially at full throttle. overall great car especially for those who want to keep there car for a long time and want to save money and drive alot and would like reliability.
