Tons Of Room With Good Economy — The CRV has a lot of room for a smaller SUV. How can you beat Honda reliability and economy in an SUV

Cool Weather Car — Had regular servicing and repairs, but didn't baby this car. Original AC died at end of warranty, replaced four times, two still under warranty and have had no AC for two years, unless you call a spray water bottle AC. The Class Action lawsuit does not include this car because of the mileage. With Honda's reputation, I bought it to last as long as I did -- the CRV lost at 200,000+ miles -- It's just too hot in Atlanta. Looking for replacement now.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great 4 Cylinder, very dependable, *comfortable, good looking family car, good gas mileage, long lived, easy to drive

Cons: Air Conditioner died at end of warranty and needed replacement every 1-2 years since.

2002 Honda CR-V EX AWDReview
Appearance:

Overall:

Expected Better Gas Mileage And Reliability. — Good all around balanced vehicle. Surprisingly as roomy as my old Jeep Grand Cherokee for cargo an with a little better, but somewhat disappointing gas mileage (about 21 average, 23 at best on highway). Engine power OK, but could use improvement. When on cruise, readily has to downshift on mild inclines. Does better holding speed in overdrive at 75 than 65-70. Expect the powertrain to hold up well past 200K miles. Biggest disappointment has been A/C repair. This is a well commented problem on various internet sites, but Honda doesn't seem concerned enough that acknowledging and taking care of it's quality problem in this area will tarnish it's reliability image. Maintenance services can be a bit pricey at dealership, and none will extend the apparent short life of A/C compressors. 3rd one at 120,000 mi.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Size and expected reliability. Visibilty.

Cons: A/C compressor reliability.  Could use a bit more torque at lower rpms for hills.

I have owned this car for over 15 years. She was amazing. I have no regrets with this purchase. Many milestones were experienced while I owed this car. Marriage. Two children. School. She was perfect. I just sold her today to a family who needs her most right now. The time was right but I am still sad to let her go. No major problems. Cost effective. Great fuel economy. Low maintenance.
