Superb Suv — Superb at most things it was designed for. Not a true off roader, but really handles the snow well. Loads of room, comfortable and quiet, Fairly economical and very smooth. Great build quality, 100% reliable and superb auto gearbox.Lots of toys and looks good. Will buy another one when this one is tired out. Great value

Pros

Integrated SatNav in Ex model, Air Con AND sunroof, Seats fold right back to give loads of room in back.

Cons

Bit of a gas guzzler if you drive over 70mph. Take it gently and its as good as a normal saloon.

Safe Reliable Sexy Car — I got this car to help me transport my dogs around. I have to admit to falling in love with it. I am now thinking about trading it in for a diesel but the same model as I prefer this one to the new 2007 model. It drives like a dream. Is easy to handle. The interior is huge. The back of the car has so much room that even a very tall person will sit in comfort with loads of leg room. The controls are very user friendly.

Great Reliable Family Vehicle — This is a great family SUV. Very reliable, comfortable ride and safe. It has tons of rear storage with a built in picnic table for that spontanious picnic. It also has a cover that hides the rear storage. This has been a great family vehicle for the last 5 years for us.

Good Looking Car — I liked the color , and everything was good for my budget when I bought it. 3 years ago. It was perfect with it's 4WD and sunroof to drive my child around. This car did a great job. Glad that nice person bought it.

Best Crossover! — The 2003 Honda CRV is a solid car. Much like Honda itself, it is not flashy, but dependable with quality throughout. There is plenty of cargo area, seats 5 comfortably, and the EX version gives me all-wheel drive and a really nice power moon-roof. CRV sets the standard in the small SUV/Crossover market.

Extraordinarily Dependable. — Dependable, reliable, safe. Excellent braking and handling in the snow and ice. Only one owner. 2003 Hond was never in an accident. Versatile with plenty of space. Fold down rear seats accomodate bicycles, boxes and items from the Home Depot.

Reliable, Strong Small-suv With An Easy To Maintain Engine. — Great, small SUV with a surprisingly large cargo area. Big enough for our large dogs. Love the rear "stadium" seating--lets the rear passengers still see what's ahead. Maintenance is a breeze--we use the dealer, which I never do, but they are cheap...who knew? Engine with V-TEC, one word-Awesome!

Pros

It's the perfect mix between a sport and a SUV with low cost

Cons

It needs a different tires, something like 245/40 R18

My Opinion — In general this car is excelent, isn't so expensive and it doesn't spend too much gas, it's fast and the handling is awesome. I bought it used, and i never had to spend money on manteinance, just the necesary changes (oil, air filter and the common things) The principal advantage of this vehicle is that it moves like a sport vehicle at the same time that works like a SUV
