Great little car

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Honda CR-V LX AWD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

I've driven this car on four different regions of the world, in North America, in Africa, in Europe, and now in the Middle East. It's done very well in European snow, in African desert and washboard dirt roads. It's little 4 banger and AWD have done fine in loose sand. It's been rock solid reliable, with regular oil changes and air filter replacements. The radiator died in 2007, but no other problems. It's acceleration leaves a little to be desired, especially up a hill. However, it's been perfect for this world traveling family. The added ground clearance and AWD have been perfect for a family that never knows what kinds of roads we'll find at our next home.




Going the distance

Vehicle: 2001 Honda CR-V LX AWD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Bought this car new to use for work. Had heard great things about Honda reliability and despite it's small size, my 6'3, 250 lb. mass fit pretty well. Wise choice. By any objective, practical measure, this has been an outstanding car. I flog it relentlessly and in 163,000 miles it has never let me down. In fact, except for scheduled maintenance items, nothing has ever gone wrong with it. Delivers 21 city and 27 on the road at 75mph, also will plow thru even deep snow effortlessly with it's seamless on demand AWD system. Always has looked a bit weird, but the inherent goodness grows on you. No plans on replacing it as I see no reason why it won't go another 100,000 miles... still runs like new.




Honda is the bomb

Vehicle: 2001 Honda CR-V LX AWD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Owned this CR-V from the beginning. Has 165,000 miles on it and no issues or problems. Changed the brakes at 100,000 miles and changing the timing belt next week other then that just the normal oil changes. Hondas and Toyotas are the only make I will buy.




Honda engine issue

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Honda CR-V LX AWD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

56,000 miles check engine light came on. Found codes P0301,302, and p1399. Search revealed Honda sb 03-038. Probable cause 1 or more cylinders have receded into the cylinder head. Corrective action-inspect the valve clearance, if necessary replace cylinder head. Car brought to fox Honda in auburn, NY they were unwilling to remove the cylinder head. Wanted to replace ignition coil and do tune up for $500.00+. Advised me I could continue driving until car wouldn't start without harming engine. At home removed cylinder head and found 2 valves out of adjustment. This is a documented problem w/these engines. Honda response - the dealer I went to made a mistake for $100 more I could have tried another...




Would buy another crv

Really Dependable solid car. This car has really held it's value!




What it lacks

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Honda CR-V LX AWD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Overall, the 2001 Honda CR-V is a good compact SUV. It rides comfortably on the highways, and it's gas milage in the City couldn't be better. It could come with a more aggressive suspension system and with larger tires to make it more fun off road. But overall it's worth the money.
