1999 Honda CR-V SUV EX 4dr SUV AWD


Review

I have had this SUV for almost 9 years and have had no problems what-so-ever! I highly recommend this vehicle for everyday use. The only minor thing I had to replace, besides the usual tires, oil and filters, was the rear-differential fluid (at 100,000 miles) because it made a grinding noise when maneuvering tight turns. Great gas mileage between 23 and 26 city. It handled snow great! It also has child-safety locks for the back doors and windows. I would purchase another CR-V in a heartbeat, but don't particularly like the exterior of the newer models.


Best Features

Fuel mileage. Interior space. Ground clearance, Full-size spare tire and easy accessability. And most of all, easy maintenance and great reliability!


Worst Features

It only comes in a 4-cylinder, maybe offer it in a V-6. Reduce road noise and rough ride.

Review

This has been the best used car I have ever purchased. I would like a new car but think I will hold on to this one a while longer. No major problems.

Review

Performance and fuel mileage with the engine/automatic transmission are sub par. At 68,000 miles the cylinder head needs to be replaced, according to the dealer, who will pay for the parts, but refuses to pay for the labor, estimated at over $1200. I have owned Honda's since 1978, but the dealer and American Honda's unwillingness to accept responsibility for this very common problem will terminate this relationship.


Best Features

The truck driving position.


Worst Features

Support common problem with extended warranties.

Review

I love everything about my Honda-CRV with the exception of two minor things. I did not like when my antenna broke off, but it was probably broken off by someone. Not Honda's fault. I also grew less in love with the manual transmission by the day. Seven years later, I'll admit it, I'm lazy and I've shifted enough. No more sticks in my life. Of course, this isn't Honda's problem. This car is a GREAT winter car. Even in 10 inch snowfalls, I couldn't get stuck.


Best Features

A really good sound system for the time. Many seating configurations available for dogs and people.


Worst Features

None needed

Review

I absolutely love my CR-V. I've had it for 7 years and 140,000 miles with no break-downs... just regular things like new tires, battery, etc. It has been a very convenient car for having two small children. Plus, it's sporty. It's traveled all over the USA with no problems ever. I'm getting ready to trade it in on a new CR-V.


Best Features

My favorite features are all of the storage compartments throughout the car and the 6 cup holders. I also like the convenient swing tail gate on the back. It's much easier than a lift gate that most vand and SUV's have.
