1999 Honda CR-V Overview

Add 20-hp to the engine, and the 1999 Honda CR-V is pretty much the same car it has been. The Honda "Real-Time" 4WD is really popular. This system means normal driving is with the front wheels, and a computer sensor will automatically switch to 4WD when necessary.

There is plenty of room for 5 passengers and storage, independent suspension (unusual for SUVs), and an anti-lock brake system. A 5-speed manual transmission is now standard on the 4WD package, though the 4-speed automatic is available as an option.

Of course we will never confuse the CR-V with a Jeep or another more powerful SUV. Instead, this vehicle is relatively inexpensive to buy, is quite economical to maintain, and will do all the everyday jobs just as well as any SUV on the road. If you can find one that doesn't already have a driver, you can have your own for about $7,000 to $9,000.

The side-opening tailgate is practical - especially for smaller people. The spare tire is mounted on the outside, allowing for more storage space. Consumers rate this vehicle very highly, though comment the seats could be more comfortable for longer drives.
