    Great Family Car — The 2008 Honda CR-V has been a great family car. The room and cargo space has been enough for long road trips. We are looking forward to possibly purchasing a newer Honda CR-V such as a 2016 model! We love our Honda!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Drives like a car

    Cons: We love it

    Great Car! — Reliable, versatile, and easy on the pocket book! Great car for road trips and everyday commuting. Front and rear passenger seats are comfortable and can accommodate a tall person comfortably (e.g. 6'6"). I would recommend this vehicle for both families or active individuals who need storage/space to transport their gear.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good on gas, low maintenance, reliable, good features

    Cons: none

    Reliable And Comfortable. Just The Right Size For Empty Nesters. — Most everything works for us. Right size, reliable, comfortable and looks pretty good. I wish it had an extra gear or two so that the mileage was better. I like the reliability of Honda products. Resale is good - and repairs a few and far apart.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: small on the outside - big on the inside. Honda quality and no issues with reliability.

    Cons: I wish it got better mileage. 20 in city and 25 on highway. Probably because of AWD??

    Love My Crv — Looking to upgrade to a CRV with leather interior. I've owned several cars and one other Honda and you can't seem to beat a Honda for realiability. Love the ride, comfort, handling, I wish the gas mileage were a better, but overall this is a great car.

    Pros: What I like:  The roomy interior, handling, ability to haul cargo, over all comfort.  I have had my 2008 CRV for 2 1/2 years, and have had no issues.  Great car that does great in the snow.  

    Cons: Blind spot if looking when pulling out if you are having to look out the back window.

    Wonderful Every-day Family Utilitiy Car. — My 2008 Honda CRV LX never had a mechanical problem. I just sold it to some nice folks and I had and have NO reservations about selling it to them. They will love the car and it will love them back.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Absolutely wonderful utility car.  I got what I paid for from Honda.

    Cons: Poor high speed handling.  I think this car would roll if you attempted a high speed, collision-avoidance maneuver.  I am no expert.  Just my gut.  Brakes are very sensitive.

    Fantastic Car - Great Experience — Nothing to complain about. Car could handle 2 large labrador retrievers and groceries. Great fuel economy. Never had any problems with this car over the 4 years we've owned it. Would buy another one for the family in a heartbeat.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great reliability and huge cargo space for overall size of car

    Cons: Power when fully loaded, but then again, it's just a 4 cyl engine
