Pros

Gas mileage is pretty good between thirty and fifty bucks depending on price.  Good on road trips.  Dependable in cold dreary crappy wheather.

Cons

Some parts are a li expensive but not too bad.  Starting to rust by the wheels and issues with the cv joints/ bearings.

It's My Lil Go Getter Luv It ... Very Dependable!! — I love the comfortable interior, mileage and dependability. Great braking system ... wish that it had came with an alarm system and seat warmers for the very cold winters out here. Stereo system not too good I opted to put in my own. Also had the windows tilted on my own.

Pros

I love my CR-V - the size is just right for me, taller than a car but not much bigger otherwise.  It is comfortable, fun to drive, and has enough room in back for what I need to haul.

Cons

I don't like that I had to replace the entire air conditioning system at 74,000 miles (4 years old) due to a faulty part used by Honda in manufacturing it and pay for half of the repair myself - Honda should have covered all of it due to the faulty part.  Then at 148,000 miles (almost 10 years old) the lower right control arm broke.  How often do control arms break?  Was that a bad part too and do I need to be concerned now about the other 3 control arms possibly breaking? Do I buy another Honda after all of this or go back to Toyota?

Awesome All-around Car, Inside And Out! — I had been looking for a smaller SUV for quite awhile, and loved the CR-V from my first test drive. It is sporty but comfortable. The gas mileage is very good, and the little extras like adjustable cup holders and an easy-access trunk door just make it the perfect fit for our on-the-go family.

Dependable, handles great, love the sporty look, low maintain acne costs, AWD

I Think This Vehicle Is In Great Shape Being A 2004 Looking Good And Dependable! — I like the fifth door to easily load and unload, and love the sporty lines and look! Hondas are the best, so dependable and trusting car! The paint and exterior has been cared for so well! This vehicle has been such a great one for me while doing my student teaching in college and being on the softball team , loading my gear in and out and traveling to an fro to home and back. It has been such a great car during the past years! I love the look of the CRV and my parents love the dependability of having a Honda! We have all owned Hondas for the past 10 years and can't be happier! They go forever!!!

Love My Suv — Car is very well maintained and always clean. Interior upholstery is like new. Less that 85,000 miles through 6 years of driving. Rides like a car which makes it fun, but had a bigger body for safety like an SUV.

I Would Buy This Car Again, And Plan To Drive It Until It Dies! — The CR-V cabin is comfortable, the vehicle handles nicely, the cargo space is great, and the mileage is a pleasing 26 mpg on average (driving the speed limit). There is plenty of power for the vehicle size, and passing is not a problem. The 4WD makes getting in and out easy - no matter the weather conditions (normal driving, of course). Integrity wise, the vehicle has held up well, both the interior and exterior. Repairs have been mainly wear and tear and regular maintenance, with the exception of replacing the alternator at approximately 60,000 miles. The single complaint I have is the road noise, which is noted in just about every review you'll see on the CR-V.

Comfortable yet rugged and fun to drive. Great view of the road - even for tall drivers.

Listed as having high rollover potential but I haven't noticed any instability.

I Love It. — This is the best all-around car I have ever owned and I got it used! It has a peppy yet economical low emissions engine, AWD so it does great in all weather conditions. This model and year of CR-V has the best field of view out of the front windshield. It is very comfortable and does well daily driving back and forth to work as well as having plenty of comfort and room for long trips with the family.

Excellent All-around Vehicle — Most reliable car I've ever owned. It has a great engine and transmission, but I wish it had more hp. An extra 40hp would make this a perfect all-around car. Gas mileage isn't the best, but it could be worse!

Well Built Car If Not A Little Expensive For The Ex-l Trim By jessed75
