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.

Cheap and Reliable

Cons

Needs more power and stiffer suspension for pulling the smallest of trailers

Perfect Little V — I love these little suv's. they are cheap, reliable and can do anything you throw at it. I will keep this until the wheels fall off. I just pulled my first trailer with this and it was 1,200 pounds. I pulled it doing 75 MPH for 210 miles. Had no problems.

Honda Cr-v Reliable — The Honda CR-V is extremely reliable. No major problems since purchase in 2001. AWD works great and it is roomy for its size. it is not the most sleek and stylish vehicle on the road, but it is worth the tradeoff. Would highly recommend to anybody.

Primary Use: Family transportation

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

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.

Great Mail Car — I use this car to carry mail on R5 Hastings. It works good and gets pretty good gas mileage compared to other larger SUV's. I like that it has the gear shift on the column and nothing in the way on the floor. It's quick, maneuverable and economical and still holds a lot of mail.

Pros

Goes almost anywhere with reliability.  Leather seats, remote start, moonroof. Has both CD and cassette tape players.

Cons

It's less quiet than a sedan. The body style is described as a station wagon.

Reliable, Dependable, Fun To Drive — I bought this car when it had less than 5000 miles on it. It had been driven by a dealer's family member. I had a moonroof and remote start added to this CR-V. An after market back up camera was also installed.

Love It — I love the vehicle. It holds a multitude of items and has a good get up and go. The seats are extra comfortable and has amazing leg room for people of all sizes. The turning radius is great and the handling is efficient.

Pros

The picnic table! Never got to use it though, and i always thought the tires looked too small in proportion to the size of the vehicle. And even if I wanted to get bigger ones, the wheel wells wouldn't allow for it, so I'd have to take it to a special car shop... and ... umm NO

Cons

it's made for little people (which makes it uncomfortable for regular sized to large people), the passengers seat didn't come with an armrest, and the cupholders were lousy. Oh, and it got 20 mpg- and thats with VTech on a 4 cylinder engine (yes, I know its heavier than the civic, but come on, it's still built on the civic's frame)

01 Honda Cr-v — I loved this car, I liked sitting up higher-- and it could GO.

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.
