Pros

Comfortable, Powerful, Safe. A pleasure to drive. Reliable, easy to maintain. Great in Snow. Great handling in city where you must do alot of parallel parking and tight turning.

Cons

Gas mileage a little high but to be expected. It's a powerful, good size car.

Snow Master — I love this car. It's great in the snow. It's comfortable and it's easy to drive. Love the handling and feel. Love the power and turn radius. I highly recommend this car. If you need a safe, powerful, reliable, well built car this is it!!! You won't be sorry!!!

Great Vehicle — great all around vehicle. lacked cargo space but taking consideration it is small suv. reliable and was a great vehicle and would recommend to anyone. also the mileage was great and will be missed. I upgraded to truck so yes gas mileage was great.

Comfortable Driving On Long Trips. — We have put 83--- thousand miles on our CR-V in four years. It doesn't have a luxury car ride like our Lincoln. Still I love to drive it because it gets good gas mileage for a non-hybrid vehicle and the driving position is comfortable.

I Like My Crv! — I like my CRV - looks great, very reliable, relatively easy on gas, and it's got a good ride. I wish the road noise wasn't as loud as it is though, but I can live with that! It's got plenty of pep too for a 4 cylinder SUV, which I really like.

Ugly, interior is cheap and scratches easily, poor fuel economy, bad acceleration, not nimble at all, handles like a boat.

A Very Ugly Herse Which Gets Poor Fuel Economy. — Looks like a hearse. Very ugly. Handles like a boat. I have now driven a friends larger Acadia with has much better handling and performance. It also gets the same fuel economy, looks better outside and inside, has more room, and has a 3.6L DOHC and 6 speed auto which outperforms this Honda piecer in spades. This vehicle is an ugly deathmobile (hearse), gets poor fuel economy, and has bad performance. I cannot think of any pros.

Best Suv — I like the way it handles curves rain or shines. it's a good looking car on the road, and in front of your house too. You get lot of stares of praise. This car is the most dependable car I have had until now.

Love This Car!! — i have a 2009 EX and so far has been an excellant vehicle for the value, (mine was around $25,500.) my mileage has been about 20mpg but i live in town and haven't even taken it on a highway yet. has TONS of storage and can fit 3 26" suitcases,3 22" suitcases, plus carry ons with room to spare! i love the chrome accents on the interior and the aux. jack makes listening to my ipod through the stereo easy! (just had to get a $8.00 cord from radio shack.) i chose the black interior being a mom, no more grape juice stains for me to scrub out! i came from a V6 engine to this 4cyl. and i really thought it wasn't going to enough power for me, but thus far has been ok, with the minor exception it has a little engine noise when you start to accelerate. i test drove the Nissan Rogue before buying this car and felt like this had more power and was a lot wider, which was important to me because i wanted to downsize suv's but didn't want to feel like i was in a clown car! i would compare this to a Nissan Murano with a much smaller price tag and not quite as much engine. i also drove Honda pilots as LX pilots had a great lease deal,and fell in LOVE but found it was larger than i was looking for and didn't have as many options. the CR-V in my opinion was the perfect choice because inside and out is kind of like a scaled down pilot!

Honda Wins Again! — Previously owned 2001 SE CRV. The 2009 XL model is greatly improved with a more quiet and smoother ride. Interior/exterior quality is what sold me versus the other competitors in this class. Gas mileage has also been improved over the 2001 model. I love driving & owning this car and I'm glad I stayed with Honda.
