    Super Reliable Vehicle — We have own this vehicle for a while. Used to be my wife's daily driver until I got her e newer vehicle. The car is so good that we decided to keep it. The engine on this vehicle it is strong and real reliable. We just had done minor tear and wear thing to the vehicle. It has 177K miles and still strong. I used the vehicle now to run arons and when family comes and visit is the house loaner. We planning to keep it for a while, no plans on selling it yet.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Reliability, cargo space. Stable handling.

    Cons: Not 4x4 SUV. Limited off road.

    Honda Cr-v — Excellent vehicle. Great for getting the family around yet nice on the highway. Lots of pep when you need it, but the engine is designed to run at too high an rpm at highway speeds. Fuel economy is okay, but not great. Have had no problems with this vehicle in the two plus years I have owned it. If you are looking for a vehicle to navigate safely in the winter, this is a good one. It has great traction with the AWD and you never feel out of control. All in all, I would rate this vehicle an 8 out of 10 and would definately recommend it.

    Pros: So good I bought a new one

    Cons: Gas mileage on this vehicle was not very good

    Best Of The Mid-size Suv's Here In Australia - By Far —

    Well, after 2 months of research and trolling the dealerships, the choice came down to Forester, Outlander, RAV4 or Honda CR-V. RAV4 - actually didn't test drive this one - I was very cramped behind the wheel with the seat fully back, and couldn't even fit in the back - too small. We were after something a bit bigger than a medium sedan/hatch, but not a serious off-roader truck like a Patrol, Paj, disco or ‘Cruiser. Needed something auto with AWD and good storage for size – something the missus would like to drive. Having driven all 3 of the above remaining medium SUV’s, came up with the following: All have similar engine size, and outputs. Mitsu the thirstiest, heaviest and least internal space for both drivers, passengers and cargo – would be fine for sub-6-footers with small kids, but not for us (I'm 6'5"/195cm) Subie – lovely driver, but narrow cabin and poor rear-seat space. Most “car-like” to drive and lovely smooth engine. Most torque. But kickdown from autobox poor. Honda – what can I say? Got into it and everything just felt “right” – highest, widest, roomiest and internally the best design, IMHO. Very zippy with the i-VTEC engine and more than enough grunt (in a car) for me. Handling is terrific and when I first drove in wet and greasy conditions, it never felt like getting out of shape (I did do some pretty heavy accelerating and braking to test engine, ‘box and brakes). Sweet and tight as a drum. Cargo area massive, compared with Forester and Outlander - rear seat space the best by far, and the way the rears fold down, then forward, means HY-UUUGE capacity for something this size. Best econ of the three as well. We all know about Honda and reliability as well now don’t we? This one, even though used, will still come with a Honda-backed 3yr warranty, and it’s a local car with full service history (by the dealer who sold it new). Peace of mind. The missus liked it best too, with the kicker that under the cargo-area carpet, and covering another recessed storage-well is a large flat piece of molded plastic, that when you lift out, realise is actually a folding picnic table! How smart is that? Plus, when I showed the missus how the rear seats folded down, then forward, her first comment was: “You could sleep in there! Let’s go camping!” w00t! After having driven both the Forester and CR-V together, it was her pick as well and I graciously got the thumbs up to go ahead with purchase. Happy chappy and they even took my 19yr old Saab as a trade, with a decent price.

    Pros: Quality and interior space

    Cons: Nothing yet
