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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Excellent Car — liked most everything about the CRV; we had great experience with it for commuting and family travel for 12 years; comfortably fits 4 adults or 2 adults & 3 kids; storage area ample for almost anything; seats fold down; roomy interior. Extremely reliable and no cost maintenance.

Honda Cr-v Is An Amazing Vehicle — I haven't done anything but maintenance work and it has 84,000 miles on it. Its a great size for a small family. Good pick up for an SUV and I still get about 23 mpg. I love it! My next car will also be a CR-V

Tons Of Room With Good Economy — The CRV has a lot of room for a smaller SUV. How can you beat Honda reliability and economy in an SUV

Love It By darth_dave

I went from a V6 2001 Windstar to a 1998 Honda CR-V. While it's taken a bit to find acceptance in a V4, the easy maintenance alone was worth the switch. It's comfortable and fun, but doesn't fly up a ... Read More
