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 !
The handling...4 x 4 goes anywhere.
No maintenance timing chain. Come-on Honda , Suzuki has discovered it!
This is a very very very good brand of autos, I was looking for an Expedition for about $10 K, but ran into a CRV, drove it and loved it...got it with 100000 miles now 126000 not one problem replaced the brake pads and oil changes this Honda looks and drives like new, I bet I can get well over 200000 miles we will see.
Controls, bendable mirrors, window controls and cruise.
Buying a Honda, we thought we were
getting a reliable vehicle, but we
couldn't have been more disapponited.
We've had many quality issues that are
un-Honda-like, 1) transmission was just
replaced, 2) rear suspension replaced,
3) steering rack replaced, 4) other
minor annoyances like rear wiper NEVER
really gets the rain off, the vehicle is
noisy at highway speeds, the driver seat
doesn't go very far back, the steering
wheel is at an awkward angle to the
driver, the engine is underpowered, the
center console is useless, the cup
holders are a joke, and don't get me
started on the stupid radio-code needed
for the stereo (we bought used so we
never had this 'code') & now we can't
use the radio
Lots of room and cargo space for a
vehicle of this size, and the vehicle
has never left us stranded. It's always
tipped us off that it's having problems,
which were many.
If you buy used, PURCHASE THE HONDA-CARE
EXTENDED WARRANTY & find out what the
radio code is - otherwise dealer will
charge you $90 to get the S/N off the
stereo & find the code for you.
I just got this car no long ago. Was
driving a Lexus LS 400 and Toyota 4-
Runner but they were both gas guzzlers.
Started to look for something more fuel-
efficient without compromising the
reliability, design, and fun and voila!
Got this used 1998 Honda CR-V (still
looks and drives great!) and is loving
Over all design, handling, and
performance and best of all - FUEL
