Overall It Has Been A Great Vehicle. — This has been a great vehicle for commuting and heading to the mountains. Like other Hondas it is very reliable and gets great gas mileage...average around 28 mpg. It has lots of room with the back seats down. Cover for the spare tire converts to a table...nice.

Cr-v Me Go. — bought this vehicle for the purpose of transporting family and on occasion moving some larger items, that would otherwise not fit in the trunk of a car. So far its done all that ive wanted and expected. moves me, wifey and baby from home to our desired destination and back, in comfort and some style. not affraid to do some work, so far ive carried a 2.3l Ford Engine in the back engine area. no problem. the 2.4L iv-tec engine has some pep.gets the vehicle moving and past the slowgoing Toyota's. realtime 4 wheel drive comes standard on the ex model i believe. though opporation is transparant, until needed. like all Honda's, solid built. appearance leaves something to be desired, though most of my time is spent in the vehicle. so i dont care, 6 cd changer,ample nooks and pockets to store "stuff", and the rear trunk area can be removed and transforms into a picnic table. overal fun as hell. for a low buck. no timing belt to be changed. oil changes and fluids, brakes, tires, occasional gasket, bulbs. not too much out of the ordinary for maintainance.

2002 Honda Cr-v — Best vehichle i have ever owned. I primarily use the vehicle to go to work and is great on gas about 10$ for every 100 kms. Easy to keep clean. Great if you have kids in car seats, it has the LATCH system in all 3 postions in the back seat. All in all the CR-V is an awesome SUV and everyone should own some type of Honda product.

Efficient, Reliable, Low Fuel Consumption, Comfortable

Lack of engine power. It's look could be better.

Good Car Overall. — It's a multiple use SUV. It's suitable for individuals as for families. It's as wide as a Mercedes S-Class, and 5 people can fit in it very easily and comfortably. Very efficient and easy to drive. But it lacks a little bit of power. Not a big fuel consumer either.

Honda Cr-v — Well, it's a cheap Honda that gets good mileage, but wait, hold it right there. It's a nice car? Whoa, that's crazy. It's a cheap car to own AND to buy, and it handles pretty decently for a mini-suv, and it gives its all from its 160 hp engine. Would be much better if it was equipped with a V6, but it feels decent.

130k Miles And Going Strong. — As a second time Honda CRV owner, very happy with it still. I'd be thrilled if it were a hybrid, someday I hope. 130,000 miles and still going strong. I think it's well a made and deceiving in size vehicle. I've moved several times using it and it's gotten me around the country very comfortably.

Old Faithful — I love this car. It has gotten me through 12 years of commuting with no major repairs necessary. Granted, I try to do my preventative maintenance. It's nearing the end of it's lifespan now but it still almost as reliable as ever!

Fun Car — Great basic transportation. Inexpensive, yet comfortable. Good acceleration w/ 5 speed and safe. Gas mileage is mid to upper 20's holds five in decent comfort. high driving position. if you have small rim size, increase to larger tire size. ex 205 to 215 or 225

Cool Weather Car — Had regular servicing and repairs, but didn't baby this car. Original AC died at end of warranty, replaced four times, two still under warranty and have had no AC for two years, unless you call a spray water bottle AC. The Class Action lawsuit does not include this car because of the mileage. With Honda's reputation, I bought it to last as long as I did -- the CRV lost at 200,000+ miles -- It's just too hot in Atlanta. Looking for replacement now.

Great Suv!!! — I like it's style except for the 15" standard mags that went with it. It's 2005 version is a perfect makeover of it with the painted bumpers and a 16" mags. Really beautiful. I just wish some owners would stop putting side steps on it, or chrome covers on the lights.
