    Lovely Small Suv For Singles Or Families — Great fun easy car to use and drive. Feels good to sit higher than cars but not like driving a boat. Holds tons of stuff and has a sweet roof rack. It is black so it will get a bit warm in the summer. Just find a tree to park under and crack the windows.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great fun easy car to use and drive.  Feels good to sit higher than cars but not like driving a boat.  Holds tons of stuff and has a sweet roof rack.

    Cons: It is black so it will get a bit warm in the summer.  Just find a tree to park under and crack the windows.

    Family Car. — I just got it. I bought it used. It seems comfy but according to my GF a bit heavy to drive. Cost of ownership in a 5-year estimate from edmunds puts it at 35k. It seems pretty average for the cost.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: I like it enough.

    Cons: No back up assistance.

    Great For Family — Great family car that comfortable for daily use. But the fuel consumption are fairly high. The engine performance are pretty good. Interiors are comfort and good for passenger as well as for transporting goods. Overall this is the best I can get for the price.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Comfort, performance

    Cons: Fuel consumption

    Boring. — if you are a male, please do not buy this car. Car is only a 4 cylinder, runs really slowly and when gas is needed, it just sucks the car is certainly not an exciting car to drive made for women with small children.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: young mother

    Cons: MALE

    Cr-v — it has a powerful engine comparing to 4-cylinder cars.the acceleration is great especially because it has a manual transmission.it looks like a little monster and also elegant at the same time.the interior is great especially with the blue lighted dashboard. it drives nicely when u drive at a static pace and it goes wild when u crave the sporty performance.

    Pros: everything

    Cons: nothng

    I Like This Car —

    The CR-V is great. I will never buy a non-AWD car again. I have been able to get up our VERY steep driveway even with 10 inches of snow on the ground. We've had a rough winter so far and I am always confident driving this car. I haven't needed any repairs. Highway driving has been great. I sit up high and can see very well. Acceleration has been good and it handles well. Interior is a little smaller than the old car, but we managed to get everyone and their luggage in for our vacation. When you put down the rear seats, there is a 3 inch lip from the cargo area. Kind of awkward. The cargo area comes with a cover shelf that you can put lightweight stuff on. It sounds better than it looks. The stuff falls down between the rear seats and into the cargo area. Besides I'm never sure if I'm putting on two much weight for the shelf. Exteriorwise, it's not a big car, but it just looks big and bulky. The cargo windows are small and visibility is not great. On another plus side, I can look drive thru people in the eye.

    Pros: AWD, height, reliability

    Cons: Cargo area isn't flat when rear seats fold down

    Great Versatilty — This is a fantastic car for someone who wants better mileage than a full size SUV and better handling in the winter than a mini van. There is plenty of room for hockey bags and it travels through the snow with ease. The best part for kids is that the back seat is extremely roomy and comfortable. Great vehicle!

    Pros: Roomy, great cargo space and great for winter driving.

    Cons: Doesn't have a ton of learance for driving in the snow.
