Great all-around vehicle. 300k miles. Designed to be utility vehicle. 1998-2000 years were the best. After that the car got flu-flu re-designs.

Typical Small Suv — I bought this car needing some work but felt it was a good purchase since I could do the work myself. I have only had it for a few weeks and am surprised at the low MPG since it is a small 2.0L 4 cylinder engine. It will do for my needs but I would expect it to be higher.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It had lower mileage than what it was replacing

Cons: Fuel economy is not what I would expect

Love It — I went from a V6 2001 Windstar to a 1998 Honda CR-V. While it's taken a bit to find acceptance in a V4, the easy maintenance alone was worth the switch. It's comfortable and fun, but doesn't fly up a hill like the Windstar did. The Honda has a lot of room for storage and fuel economy is way better than the big heavy minivan obviously.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Reliable, good fuel, low maintenance, simple engine, good handling.

Cons: Lower power.

Clear Title — good comfortable car, rides and handles really well. I bought the car from a lady that couldn't afford to have timing belt and resulting valve damage repaired and did the repairs myself. I have driven the car about 1000 miles with no oil consumption or loss of any fluids. I just don't need to keep it. I put in new antifreeze (Advance 50/50), and changed oil (Pennzoil 5w30 and Fram filter) when repairs were done.

Pros: new timing belt, water pump, battery, and rear struts

Cons: Has had RR repair (new paint) dosen't match older(faded) paint. Driver window does not roll down(?)

I Will Get Another One If This One Ever Wears Out — While not a pure suv, no low range. I have had it in snow, mud forest service roads in the Sierra and the AWD is far better than I expected it to be. It will cruise all day and not leave you fatigued. First tire replacement I put on two sizes wider in a 60 series. Looks handles better than the original size.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Tough little car. 235,000 miles and going strong. Normal but  maintenance. Honda replaced the head at 110,00 due to a valve problem. Tow my small bass boat with zero problems.

Cons: No cons

Wife Loves This Car. — Terrific gas mileage. All "wear and tear" parts replaced and car has been very well maintained. A fun, safe and dependable ride. The AWD was great during the snow and ice. Hey! It's a Honda, what more can you say?

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Drive and you will truly appreciate this car.

Cons: If you like paying for gas, don't buy this car.

This Is A Great First Car — In my search for a car, I came across a 1998 Honda CR-V. I had driven a 2000 model, and LOVED it, so I thought this one would be worth a look. So I ended up buying it. I love this car, it feels nice to drive, its kinda slow, but not bad. It works great for putting the (Honda) lawnmower in. I can't wait to get my license in a couple more months, so I can drive it to school and cross-country practice. Its very easy to park, which is a great plus for me. It even has its own table (look in your owner's manual if you don't know what I'm talking about). I want my next car to be another Honda FOR SURE! or a Toyota.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It is VERY easy to park, and also easy to handle around town

Cons: It is kinda slow

Terrific — Super dependable. fun. amazingly agile for a high center of gravity car. I jerry rigged a cone filter to the factory inlet tube and I get up to 29 mpg highway at 75 miles per hour. my rpm at 60 mph is only 2200 rpm.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Smile factor of 8.

Cons: odd transmision transition on the 1-2 shift takes some getting used to. Truly a crap retaining vehicle (cr-v) I can and do carry too many tools and 'stuff'.
