1997 Honda CR-V 4dr SUV AWD


This car has quality issues. The 1st reason is that the car started stalling on me. It stalled on the freeway a number of times and on the street, it is an automatic transmission. 2nd, this car is way underpowered. I had trouble accelerating onto freeways. 3rd, the car handles poorly. The car is front heavy. This makes it diffcult to manuver and avoids things. 4th, the steering wheel is in an awkward position, like a van, and is not adjustable. We got the car brand new from the dealer and used it a lot but took good care of it. My guess is that we probably got a lemon, but that is our first and last experience with Honda.

Best Features

There is a lot of back seat room. Easy to get in and out of car.

Worst Features

Using a high quality ignition switch. We took it to the dealer to have it checked 3 times, they said there was nothing wrong with the car or the switch. They only replaced the ignition switch after there was a recall. Better stock stereo system.
