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.

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.

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.

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.

Pros

Surpisingly quick & good handling in a large, safe car

Cons

A little thirsty on fuel

75

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

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.
