1998 Honda CR-V EX 4dr SUV AWD


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.
