    Tried And True — Orignal owners, it handles very well in all weather conditions, it is easy to get in and out of, accommodates passengers with physical problems such as back and hips. In the snow and ice it handled very well with AWD. Last year had to travel a mountain road in heavy snow storm with my wife and kids, I was worried and I was amazed that the truck had no problems with sharp turns and steep climbs. The bumpers and trim seemed to fade very easily in the NC sun. The performance on this car is solid and I feel very safe with my 17 year old daughter using this car for commuting to school and work. The only issue was one related to the battery with intermittent periods of the battery doing dead. Having is evaluated again, it appears that there is a an issue with the rear door latch release button that keeps the dome light on.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very reliable and handles well in snow and ice.

    Cons: Passenger side seat adjustment is a bit difficult, back seat area has cramped foot room

    Great " Around Town" Vehicle. — The CRV is a recent find for me, I was looking for a smaller vehicle for daily errands. I am so glad I discovered this one! It is just what I wanted and it is roomier than I thought it would be. It handles very well, has good pick up and is a comfortable ride. Based on reviews I have read, I am looking forward to see how it handles in the snow.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great looking, easy to drive, holds more than you think.

    Cons: I have only driven this e few times, so far....no negatives.

    Great Car For A Family, Just Dont Treat Her Like A Race Car. — This is a very well built vehicle that would last a family a lifetime. Back in that generation of CR-V, performance was not their top priority, though that CRv was more fun to drive than my parents brand new ones. It were before this CRv and my parents brand new 2012.... I would pick this one!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great price, cheap maintenance, lots of spot to do whatever it is you want to do,

    Cons: The SUV feels cheap, stupid little things fall apart or rattle; overall a good SUV.

    Nice Looking And Low Maintenance. — I bought this car after having been without a car for over eight years. It handles very well and my experience has been better than posted gas mileage. It is quite comfortable, even on extended trips, though on the couple of occasions when I've driven it accross country, it has created a little stiffness in the legs and lower back. It holds an amazing amount for a small SUV and has been a lifesaver in that regard many times! During my last move it was able to hold so much that a friend half jokingly described it as a TARDIS car (bigger on the inside). The four cylinder engine is a little sluggish at times, especially on hills, but once it gets going it can move! Maintenance is rarely needed, but is a touch on the pricey said when it IS needed. On the other hand though, the battery that came with it lasted me almost five years. It would have lasted longer except I accidently left a dome light on. Even so, Honda covered the battery under warranty and gave me a full warranty on the new battery. Can't beat that for quality customer service! I still have the original tires on it, and it has only been in the last couple of months that they have gotten to the point where they are showing a visible need for replacement. I hope to get at least another 8 to 10 years out of this car and plan to drive it until I run it into the ground. I would definitely recommend a Honda to anyone considering one, and based on my experience would be hard pressed to find a convincing reason to not get another Honda.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Excellent storage space. Better than average gas mileage.

    Cons: Doesn't always like to go up hills or pass in a hurry.

    Very Good — I love my CR-V. It is a smooth ride and turning circle is a big plus. Handles very easily. It is a good, functional family car with lots of space. Fuel consumption is relatively good for the size of vehicle and is a lot better in the newer ones

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: easy to drive

    Cons: slight lag when overtaking - 2l is not powerful enough
