Pros

This a great little SUV. Very reliable and fun to drive.

Cons

In my opinion The 4 cylinder engine could have a little more power for a AWD.
Overall it does very well and is great on snow days.

Honda Cr-v Awd 5-speed (manual) — I love this car. It has been fun to drive and it is very reliable during the winter when there is a lot of snow. The AWD is a plus. The interior has a lot of space and the cool folding rear picnic table under the cargo area was a great idea for this model.

Very Impressed — I loved everything about this car. The only reason I am trying to sell it is because I have traded up and we already have too many cars. The car has never given any problems. I have done all maintenance as required. Everything works great. Great on gas mileage as well as comfort.

I Like My Crv — I have been using this car for 7 years. Exceptional strength steady and does not require expensive maintenance costs, just change the oil every 6 months. All my family members are also very pleased with the car. I am very proud of this car.

A Nice And Practical Family Car — A Honda CR-V is a very practical family car with easy access to all seats and the trunck. The car is very reliable and easily driven. The front seats are great and the driving position is good. Prices of a preowned model is fair.

Pros

As good as I expected if not a little better.

Cons

Road noise

Family Car — Zippy v-tec engine gives a sporty acceleration. 4wd with traction control provides a confident feel in the snow and very predictable handling on ice. All the extra plastic trim has gives a cheap feel and a couple unnecessary rattles. Interior is very roomy with ample head and shoulder space also the rear seats give good leg room. Very good gas mileage for a small SUV, Little more road noise than I originally expected but better tires has improved this considerably. Overall very impressed with the value. Little cost for such a nice driving roomy little SUV.

Gearbox, acceleration, looks, space.

Cons

Aircon and 4WD performance

Not Bad For A Lesbian Mobile — Fly-by-wire accelerator - every car should have it. Provides great throttle control. Also grade control is excellent, another must have a for every auto. 5 speed auto also excellent. Great build quality, only minor body trim rattle on rough roads. Looks great still 3 yrs later, much better than latest model. Great on freeways. Needs better aircon and better rear door that stays open, both of which come with new model but not worth having the new car looks.
