2008 Honda CR-VReview

Overall:

This was the worst car I have ever seen. I was on the lookout for a car for quite awhile and this was by far the worst one I have seen. The locks did not unlock by themselves and made a shuttering noise. The doors didnt open from the outside and continued the shuttering noise whenever a turn was made. The steering wheel sat with the wheels straight completely turned to the side and was difficult to move. This car was not ready to be sold and is absolute garbage.

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

no power and the inside did not hold up to previous owner. Felt cheaply made when driving and the brakes had a grinding noise.

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
