    Solid Car With Plenty Of Amenities — Acceleration is mediocre but the ride quality is extremely smooth otherwise. The engine is quiet and doesn't rev too high. I average around 20 mpgs doing mostly city driving which is pretty good. Leather seats are extremely comfortable and all the temperature and audio controls are easy to figure out. 270 watt sound system is a bit overkill for AM/FM radio and XM but it is awesome with CDs or iPod (via the auxiliary input). Plenty of legroom in the front and back for a car its size and the middle seat in the back is decently wide. Overall solid car with quality materials inside and out and easy handling. Compared to the similar Rav4 which costs more, this is a way better car!

    Pros: Quiet, easy ride, Premium Sound System, Good value for the money

    Cons: Acceleration

    Another Ace From Honda — Had it now for almost a year and nothing bad to report. Again Honda build quality shines through, the car is just about as reliable and as good as most Honda's are. The only downside is a non-optional V-6 engine, which is fine, but the transmission is setup to change gear at 4-5 thousand RPM, but it has never felt slow

    Pros: Its got Honda build quality, and Honda backing.

    Cons: Rev's higher than most cars

    Honda Crave Cr-v [ Compact Recreational Vehicle ] — PERFoRmANce wisE iTs GREAT. THE oNLy dRAwbAck is the responsiveness of the engine (coz its drive-by-wire) so not as responsive as the 1st model build. But the interior and exterior styling, they're more than make up for the drawback. So i guess i would still vote for this car as one of the BEsT in its cLAss. ^.~v! cHEERz.

    Pros: BEAuTiFuL iNTERioR 'N ExTERioR. STRoNG ENGiNE.

    Cons: NoT As REspoNsivE As THE 1st BuiLd

    Gorgeous Suv — Bought this car in mid of 2008, at first I was expecting for a New Honda Civic, however due to the technical dealership problems, I thought it was better off to have a Honda CRV instead. Overall this is a great car, I also have the initial 2001 Honda CRV, both reflects the powerful and dynamic characteristics.

    Pros: Dynamic built, mileage and gas consumption indicator

    Cons: Not as powerful as the initial Honda CRV

    The Suit Modale Honda — i like because has got damn engine power with 2400 cc and has strong enough for braking, nice handling in their class. you don't need repairs any kind of alteration. luxurious seat, the cabin its big enough for four person. high cost of maintenance, high gas mileage. this car is fun to drive because i thing there are hand rest in every seat and of course pretty comfortable. but sometimes the shock absorber feel too hard.

    Pros: comfortable

    Cons: high cost of maintenance

    I Love My Car — The performance is amazing considering a 4 cylinder SUV, it accelerates quickly and the handling is amazing. The build quality is top notch, from the paint finish to the sturdieness of the doors. There are no squeaks or rattles of any sort. The appearence is top notch, looking very classy on the outside and inside. The cost of ownership is very little as the gas mileage is high for a 4 wheel drive and it is a Honda so it has very little maintenence needs. It is a very fun car to drive and I love my car.

    Pros: Fuel efficient, reliable, fun and exciting.

    Cons: None

    Classic Crv — Cars got intense torgue and powertrain. Insane Build but no goods on the milage. Given Colors are limited. Engine last a while. Provided Tires are weak. But Positives lie in it.

    Pros: The Stereo Radio w/ Aux compatibilty

    Cons: GAS

    Safe & Kid Friendly — I've only had this car for 1 month and I like it so far. It has great breaks and handles well. Overall good gas mileage, I average 21 mpg. Poweful enough to get you on the freeway but not pass anyone. :)

    Pros: Onboard computer tells you gas mileage, etc.  Good breaks!

    Cons: Needs more power & It would be better with rear wheel drive

    One Of The Better Small Sport Utility Vehicles — Drove this car a few times and it is pretty good for a small SUV. Lots of room and has a nice interior.

    Pros: Interior
    Cargo space
    Handling (for an SUV)
    Smooth shifts
    Smooth engine
    Standard safety equipment

    Cons: Awkward looking front end that I can't get over
    Engine doesn't have all that much torque for a vehicle this size
    Sounds like a wind-up toy when it starts up and when the engine revs up
