Pros

Quiet, easy ride, Premium Sound System, Good value for the money

Cons

Acceleration

105

Solid Car With Plenty Of Amenities — Acceleration is mediocre but the ride quality is extremely smooth otherwise. The engine is quiet and doesn't rev too high. I average around 20 mpgs doing mostly city driving which is pretty good. Leather seats are extremely comfortable and all the temperature and audio controls are easy to figure out. 270 watt sound system is a bit overkill for AM/FM radio and XM but it is awesome with CDs or iPod (via the auxiliary input). Plenty of legroom in the front and back for a car its size and the middle seat in the back is decently wide. Overall solid car with quality materials inside and out and easy handling. Compared to the similar Rav4 which costs more, this is a way better car!

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Great Versatilty — This is a fantastic car for someone who wants better mileage than a full size SUV and better handling in the winter than a mini van. There is plenty of room for hockey bags and it travels through the snow with ease. The best part for kids is that the back seat is extremely roomy and comfortable. Great vehicle!

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.

Honda Cr-v — Fun to drive Comfy for long drives(13 hr). Brakes are powerful, Power is there when you need it, 168 BHP It's good, Can be better by some modification. if you take care of the maintenance the only thing need to be change is Oil and Brakes .

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

I think I've pretty much said it in my opening remarks.  One fantastic little SUV!  Handling is even above par for a car like this.

Cons

Could use a bit more power.  If Honda would Turbo it, look out!

Golden Hauler — One fantastic little SUV/Crossover. No wonder they're number one in sales of small SUV's. Bought this car new in 2008. Has 42,000 miles now, and not a squeak or rattle anywhere. It's the top of the line model (EX-L Navi) with black leather seats, Navigation, Silver Exterior, Weather Tech mats, 3M Clear Bra on front and leading edges, new tires, new battery, trailer hitch (class I), HID Headlights, Factory Honda Fog Lights, Magnaflow Exhaust, Honda Running Boards and Splash Guards, Privacy Glass in all rear windows, 50% Tint in front door windows, Monochromatic Rear View Mirror with Compass, Honda Rear Hatch Spoiler, K&N 1 Million Mile Air Filter, and Runs with Mobil 1 Oil.

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.
