2001 Honda CR-V SUV LX 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I bought my CRV new in 2001 and loved it since. I have had no problems with it, I just get the oil changed every 3k miles and do the minor maint like tires, brakes and have fluids checked. I put almost 70k miles on it. It is very reliable. I feel safe in it too. It is a bit heavier than the new models, not as "flimsy". It has alot of space in the back. We travel a lot across country and we can fit all our luggage in the back. We will always have Hondas. I will drive it until it dies!

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Build quality, comfort (though it is a little noisy), anvil like reliability, gas mileage.


Worst Features

Quiet the cabin. Actually, I just rode in a new one and they have.

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


Review

Great car this one. With oil changes it goes and goes with only minor repairs. I will definitely buy a Honda again just not a CRV. Our kids are getting older and the back seat is the most uncomfortable rear seat I have ever sat in. The kids hate it! Very poor rear seat design. Other than that a good little car. Perfect for two people.


Best Features

Reliability pure and simple. Hondas are superior quality made cars.


Worst Features

I would suggest that our military use the rear seats to torture prisoners. Just let them sit there and drive them around for two hours and they'll be willing to give up any secrets. Just bad design. Very uncomfortable.

2001 Honda CR-V SUV SE AWD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Fun and easy to drive. Sometimes lack power, but it is expected with a 4cyl. Have to change the AWB drive fluid every one-two years to fix the squeaking noise when making a sharp turn. Gas mileage ok.


Best Features

AWD, picnic table in trunk.


Worst Features

More power and more comfortable seats

Review

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.


Best Features

for a smaller SUV the driver and passenger sides are very roomy. good on gas.


Worst Features

none
