A Wonderful Little Car — I love this little car its always gotten me where I need to go. I've had a few problems with the starter going out and a few oil leeks but I have got them fixed though I keep my eyes on it especially since it is an older car. The handling and brakes have saved me from more than one accident and I am very grateful that it has good brakes and handling, the four-wheel drive has come in handy too. This car has been an amazing first car and I have had no accidents in it, I'm not sure about the people who had it before me but it has done great with me. Overall I give it four stars, it is an amazing little car and I hope who ever has it next will take good care of it.

Pros: It is a great little car! Great for a first time driver or a little family! I have had a few problems with it but that's the chance you take with buying an older car. It is a very comfortable drive and has decent gas mileage. The people I bought my car from used this car to take trips up to colorado and the four-wheel drive was very helpful with driving on the mountains I even drove it up to Colorado my self and it preformed wonderfully. Its a very safe car and it has kept me safe in many situations and the handling and the breaks have saved me from a few accidents, which comes in very handy.

Cons: Its a wonderful little car every now and then I have the starter go out on me (only happened to me twice out of my three years with it). I had a few oil leeks but all those have been takin care of but I would still keep my eye on it. Sometimes if your going fast (like 80 mph which you rarely go) there is a little bit of a vibration in the front. Sometimes when replacing a part it is slightly more expensive because it is not an American made car brand.

A Reliable Vehicle — This vehicle has lots of room , it is really reliable, it handles great on any type of roads, overall a great vehicle. Needs improvement as per comfort of seats, and the storage at the rear can also be improved. No need for a table.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Reliable

Cons: looks like a box

Great Gas Mileage For A Small Suv, And Pretty Sharp Looking Too! — Great vehicle, especially for its age! Good gas mileage, smooth ride. Only negative would be the gear shift on the steering wheel and no console between the front seats (flip up tray, but no storage).

Primary Use: Commuting to work

To My Needs, It's Perfect For The Time Being. I'll Probably Have It Till The Wheels Fall Off. —

Overall, this is a great vehicle in that it's got a solid build behind it. I mean, Honda has made some of the longest lasting cars, with the least maintenance, in the past ten years or so, which is perfect for those strapped for cash. As for performance, the acceleration is a bit sluggish for my like at times, but at least its mph holds steady through it. I've never had an issue with the handling or stearing, but as with all this, if the cash were on hand, I'd pay for some mods. Right now it's been in my care for over a year, so yes, I bought it through Honda's Pre-Owned service, and the previous owner never drove it in the near decade he owned it. Right now it's on 135k+ milage, and I've yet to have any serious issues with it for maintenance. Cosmetically, I've had to watch the black lining around my windows slowly break apart and flake off, but the paint and all else is holding strong. I've had contemplations about upgrading to a newer model, but I have to say, the one I've got has grown on me. I'm sticking with it for the long haul, I think.

Pros: I should probably suggest a newer model.

Cons: I'm sure there are more varied features on newer models.

Peter 1997 Honda Cr-v — 4WD, 16 inch Alloy wheels, 17mpg in city 24 mpg on highway, great steering, 4V- cylinder engine, 6 cd player , silver body, it is 12 years old bur has only 91, 250 miles on it so far. It can easily go for another 100,000 miles. I got a new muffler for a couple months ago that cost $ 700 . But that is it for repairs. Its a Honda what do you expect? Base Price in1997 was $ 13,500. For 2009 the value is $6,500 from Kelly Blue Book. Good Condition. Very fun to drive!!! It like a jeep liberty but it is better on gas.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

Cr-v — It's wonderfully reliable. The all wheel drive kicks in right when I need it which is often during these Northeast winters. For a V-4, it's pretty zippy once it get going at highway speed. I would definitely recommend this vehicle to friends and family.

Pros: Reliable

Cons: It's appearance won't bowl you over.

Its Falling Apart — hard to accelerate, takes up too much gas, bad brakes, doors don't work, glovebox works when it wants to, back windshield wiper doesn't work....but i like the little table inside the car!

Pros: design, comfort, view of road

Cons: falling apart everywhere...maybe that's my fault.
