    Best Crossover! — The 2003 Honda CRV is a solid car. Much like Honda itself, it is not flashy, but dependable with quality throughout. There is plenty of cargo area, seats 5 comfortably, and the EX version gives me all-wheel drive and a really nice power moon-roof. CRV sets the standard in the small SUV/Crossover market.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Reliability; quality build; versatile;

    Cons: Wish it got a bit better MPG

    Extraordinarily Dependable. — Dependable, reliable, safe. Excellent braking and handling in the snow and ice. Only one owner. 2003 Hond was never in an accident. Versatile with plenty of space. Fold down rear seats accomodate bicycles, boxes and items from the Home Depot.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Excellent power.  Vtec engine (Acura).
    Mountain driving with four people and cargo is no problem.

    Cons: MPG between 22 and 24 City or Highway.

    Superb Suv — Superb at most things it was designed for. Not a true off roader, but really handles the snow well. Loads of room, comfortable and quiet, Fairly economical and very smooth. Great build quality, 100% reliable and superb auto gearbox.Lots of toys and looks good. Will buy another one when this one is tired out. Great value

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Reliable, good looking, smooth, roomy and generally very good at everything it does.

    Cons: Nothing

    I Wouldn't Buy One Unless It Was New! — It holds what I need it to, has lots of cargo space, it seats 5 comfortably, but I hate the way it looks, especially the exterior and interior color, handling and acceleration suck, you feel like you're going to tip over a lot & its not luxurious enough for my taste.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great gas mileage, plenty of passenger & cargo space, great in snow, low maintenance, 6 disc in-dash changer

    Cons: Interior & exterior color, acceleration, handling

    Reliable, Strong Small-suv With An Easy To Maintain Engine. — Great, small SUV with a surprisingly large cargo area. Big enough for our large dogs. Love the rear "stadium" seating--lets the rear passengers still see what's ahead. Maintenance is a breeze--we use the dealer, which I never do, but they are cheap...who knew? Engine with V-TEC, one word-Awesome!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Easy to maintain.

    Cons: Big blind spots.

    My Opinion — In general this car is excelent, isn't so expensive and it doesn't spend too much gas, it's fast and the handling is awesome. I bought it used, and i never had to spend money on manteinance, just the necesary changes (oil, air filter and the common things) The principal advantage of this vehicle is that it moves like a sport vehicle at the same time that works like a SUV

    Pros: It's the perfect mix between a sport and a SUV with low cost

    Cons: It needs a different tires, something like 245/40 R18

    Great College Car — If you can fit your stuff in a CR-V, you will have room in your apartment at college.This was my late mothers car. It hasn't let me down. Nicer than a lot of banger that are found around campus. Smooth ride at high speeds. Great for long trips.

    Pros: Roomy, Stereo is fairly good, fits all my stuff, great acceleration for class, smooth ride.

    Cons: Wind shield wipers stick if any ice around gears, not a lot of room added by folding rear seats forward.

    Safe Reliable Sexy Car — I got this car to help me transport my dogs around. I have to admit to falling in love with it. I am now thinking about trading it in for a diesel but the same model as I prefer this one to the new 2007 model. It drives like a dream. Is easy to handle. The interior is huge. The back of the car has so much room that even a very tall person will sit in comfort with loads of leg room. The controls are very user friendly.

    Pros: Integrated SatNav in Ex model, Air Con AND sunroof, Seats fold right back to give loads of room in back.

    Cons: Bit of a gas guzzler if you drive over 70mph. Take it gently and its as good as a normal saloon.
