Omg It's The Best! Smooth And Steady Baby.. — AWESOME! It runs like magic and i wouldn't trade it for anything...I heard from my friends that it was like a dream but you really can't understand it until you've experienced the wonders that it works and the magnificence that it holds!!! This car is not replaceable and I will cry if it ever has to be sold...

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.

Tried And True — Orignal owners, it handles very well in all weather conditions, it is easy to get in and out of, accommodates passengers with physical problems such as back and hips. In the snow and ice it handled very well with AWD. Last year had to travel a mountain road in heavy snow storm with my wife and kids, I was worried and I was amazed that the truck had no problems with sharp turns and steep climbs. The bumpers and trim seemed to fade very easily in the NC sun. The performance on this car is solid and I feel very safe with my 17 year old daughter using this car for commuting to school and work. The only issue was one related to the battery with intermittent periods of the battery doing dead. Having is evaluated again, it appears that there is a an issue with the rear door latch release button that keeps the dome light on.

Its Another Honda — An underpowered SUV that delivers exceptional fuel economy for its size. Its V-TEC engine delivers the needed power at higher RPMS.

Gearbox, acceleration, looks, space.

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.

Great " Around Town" Vehicle. — The CRV is a recent find for me, I was looking for a smaller vehicle for daily errands. I am so glad I discovered this one! It is just what I wanted and it is roomier than I thought it would be. It handles very well, has good pick up and is a comfortable ride. Based on reviews I have read, I am looking forward to see how it handles in the snow.

Pros

With the price of gas at about $3.75 I still pay under $50 to fill the tank. Lots of "trunk" space. Fits five people comfortably. Has a CD changer and a cassette deck (hey, I'm old-school). It has a great little table with a two cup holder and a picnic table in the back.

Cons

They don't make 'em exactly like this model anymore.  Get an 05 if you can.

Perfect Size For A Single Person Or A Small Family. — I love this car. It's a mini-SUV, but only 4 cylinders, so it's gasoline efficient.

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.

Great Car For A Family, Just Dont Treat Her Like A Race Car. — This is a very well built vehicle that would last a family a lifetime. Back in that generation of CR-V, performance was not their top priority, though that CRv was more fun to drive than my parents brand new ones. It were before this CRv and my parents brand new 2012.... I would pick this one!
