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!

Review

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.


Best Features

Controls, bendable mirrors, window controls and cruise.

Review

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


Best Features

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.


Worst Features

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.

Review

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 it!


Best Features

Over all design, handling, and performance and best of all - FUEL ECONOMY!!


Worst Features

Nothing.
