Great Family Car — The 2008 Honda CR-V has been a great family car. The room and cargo space has been enough for long road trips. We are looking forward to possibly purchasing a newer Honda CR-V such as a 2016 model! We love our Honda!

Great Car! — Reliable, versatile, and easy on the pocket book! Great car for road trips and everyday commuting. Front and rear passenger seats are comfortable and can accommodate a tall person comfortably (e.g. 6'6"). I would recommend this vehicle for both families or active individuals who need storage/space to transport their gear.

Pros

small on the outside - big on the inside. Honda quality and no issues with reliability.

Cons

I wish it got better mileage. 20 in city and 25 on highway. Probably because of AWD??

Reliable And Comfortable. Just The Right Size For Empty Nesters. — Most everything works for us. Right size, reliable, comfortable and looks pretty good. I wish it had an extra gear or two so that the mileage was better. I like the reliability of Honda products. Resale is good - and repairs a few and far apart.

Pros

What I like:  The roomy interior, handling, ability to haul cargo, over all comfort.  I have had my 2008 CRV for 2 1/2 years, and have had no issues.  Great car that does great in the snow.  

Cons

Blind spot if looking when pulling out if you are having to look out the back window.

Love My Crv — Looking to upgrade to a CRV with leather interior. I've owned several cars and one other Honda and you can't seem to beat a Honda for realiability. Love the ride, comfort, handling, I wish the gas mileage were a better, but overall this is a great car.

Pros

Absolutely wonderful utility car.  I got what I paid for from Honda.

Cons

Poor high speed handling.  I think this car would roll if you attempted a high speed, collision-avoidance maneuver.  I am no expert.  Just my gut.  Brakes are very sensitive.

Wonderful Every-day Family Utilitiy Car. — My 2008 Honda CRV LX never had a mechanical problem. I just sold it to some nice folks and I had and have NO reservations about selling it to them. They will love the car and it will love them back.

Fantastic Car - Great Experience — Nothing to complain about. Car could handle 2 large labrador retrievers and groceries. Great fuel economy. Never had any problems with this car over the 4 years we've owned it. Would buy another one for the family in a heartbeat.

Pros

Great fun easy car to use and drive.  Feels good to sit higher than cars but not like driving a boat.  Holds tons of stuff and has a sweet roof rack.

Cons

It is black so it will get a bit warm in the summer.  Just find a tree to park under and crack the windows.

Lovely Small Suv For Singles Or Families — Great fun easy car to use and drive. Feels good to sit higher than cars but not like driving a boat. Holds tons of stuff and has a sweet roof rack. It is black so it will get a bit warm in the summer. Just find a tree to park under and crack the windows.

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