    My Angel — Great wee jeep type. Had 40 mile hr driver side crash, front wing side sipe with loaded transit full of logs and railway sleepers and had minimal damage to self. Car maybe right off but I now trust its worth in a crash.

    Pros: safe, big enough for 3 dogs & kid. High enough for old mum to get in & out. Smooth ride on long journeys.

    Cons: Passenger door driver side lock bust.

    A Great Little Suv, But.... — Power isn't great,but with short geared transmission it does the job. Fuel economy needs to be better for a 2.0L engine: 22 around town, 25 on the highway. Roomy interior but seats get uncomfortable after a couple hours of driving. Good cargo space and AWD system works very well for being so primitive compared to the Subaru system. Relatively low maintenance but mine has needed some unscheduled work, such as a new master cylinder and two slave cylinders on the clutch system, a new handle on the rear door, and a new lock on the driver's door. It also tends to idle rough. I tried replacing the OEM spark plugs with platinum plugs. They fixed the idle problem but made the Check Engine light come on, hence had to abandoned at inspection time. Have taken it on back roads and it handles great for a car of its size and weight. Overall a great small SUV when you can live with its limitations.

    Pros: Roomy interior, handling, smooth clutch, large engine compartment, relatively fun to drive

    Cons: Low on power, high RPM at highway speeds, fuel economy, seats, rough idle, unexpected problems

    Cr-v — Reliable SUV which I will run to the ground. I got it certified used. Soon after we had a transmission problem and it was replaced by Honda. Since then it has been smooth sailing with this car. Road noise on the highway is an issue for me. For what it cost and the value it holds today, its a great vehicle to own. I hope that Honda comes out with a hybrid version soon.

    Pros: reliability, mileage, storage

    Cons: road noise, interior

    Battlewagon7 — great gas mileage, has held up to some serious beatings in the past. Goes through snow like a Hummer H2... Awesome winter car.

    Pros: interior space, Corbeau Carerra drivers seat

    Cons: no power, faded hood due to a paint guy that did'nt primer it before painting...

    Solid Car, Has Held Up Great Over 10 Years. — This car was my mothers before mine and its quality has never deteriorated. I feel safe but not a huge honking SUV like some of em out there.

    Pros: Rides high-ish for visibility's sake

    Cons: Acceleration's not so good.

    Good Small Suv — The build was incredible, extremely solid, never had to take in for ANYTHING in the 7 years I owned it. The interior was very spacious and comfortable. The ride was safe, but the engine lacked power, acceleration was mediocre and braking was long. Handling, on the other hand, was nimble and very precise. Very decent trunk space for its size. I owned for several years until I left the country and bought a Mitsubishi Outlander. Overall, I'd rate the C-RV over the Outlander in terms of build, handling, fuel efficiency and overall performance.

    Pros: Nimble handling, spacious interior, good cargo space, incredible fit-and-finish, unbeatable reliability, good fuel efficiency.

    Cons: Underpowered, mediocre brakes, price, alarm system (had to be replaced after the first year, but since it was originally installer by an outside vendor and not by Honda, I can't hold it against them).

    Practical And Reliable Honda Crv — This car is so practical - the cargo space dimensions and rear door style allow you to carry items that some larger SUVs cannot handle. Between this internal space and the practical roof rack there is little we cannot move! Lotsa of room inside - and as an older person I appreciate the upright seating and the ease of entry and exit. Maintain it regularly and it will go forever! Love it!!
