1998 Honda CR-V Overview

The 1998 Honda CR-V seems to be the alternative SUV for people who consider practicality over size. With the exception of minor design considerations, most all consumers are very pleased with comfort, style, maneuverability and safety features.

In mid-1998, Honda introduced a 5-speed transmission along with a simple front-wheel drive option for the CR-V. All models are designed for seating five people, and duel airbags come standard.

Some people have requested a more powerful engine, yet the available 126-hp, 2.0-liter engine seems to get the job done. This SUV is designed with a side-opening tailgate with the spare tire mounted on the outside - clearly built with storage in mind. Honda even moved the shifter up onto the steering column in order to accommodate extra long carrying items. With all this focus on hauling, the rear seats (when in use) could be a bit more comfortable.

Consumers who are driving their vehicles 150,000 to 200,000 miles tell us the secret is being sure to keep up regular maintenance. If you treat this SUV right, it will reward you for many years.
