1998 Honda CR-V EX 4dr SUV AWD


Review

This is an exceptionally versatile car. I have the economy 4WD, so the comfort level is utilitarian, but that's all I wanted, really. This is the car I use for DYI projects and going back and forth to work. The 4 cyl engine is perky, but weak on the steep hills, but the mileage (22/city) makes up for it. It is the only SUV with a wheelbase that actually looks stable.

1998 Honda CR-V LX 4dr SUV AWD


Review

I have had my car since new. Now, with more than 95,000 miles, it is still an awesome car! I enjoy driving it and am so blessed by the reliability of it. I've always done my routine maintenance suggested by Honda and have only had a couple of things outside of that done. Good ride but not exceptional comfort. A little too much roadnoise if given a perfect situation. But, still one of the best on the market! The only thing I would like to see changed is the corner posts of the car. They are rather large and get in the way of driving with full view on curvy roads. Oh well, I just lean a little and voila!


Best Features

Length of the passenger compartment makes it possible to carry eight foot lumber, which I do quite often. I also use the "under deck"/cooler area in the rear to store pads/towels, etc so as to keep the inside clean when I do haul anything.


Worst Features

If there would be some way to minimize road noise it would be helpful. Also, the corner posts are rather beefy and make driving curvy roads with full frontal view difficult.

Review

Just a few words to the wise.Change the transmission fluid every 30,0000 miles or so being it's cheap because there is no filter. I waited and transmission started acting up after 60,000 miles. Also be sure to check cabin filter. After 7 years it was terrible. It is located behind the glove box. This is a VG vehicle and I recommend it to anyone looking for a reliable used car. Fun to drive and like a cat in snow. Go Honda !


Best Features

The handling...4 x 4 goes anywhere.


Worst Features

No maintenance timing chain. Come-on Honda , Suzuki has discovered it!
