Great AWD multipurpose wagon
By grhoward on
2001 Honda CR-V EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Got a great deal on my 2001 Honda CRV-
EX last summer (it's still worth more
than I paid). Almost had it a year and
simply love this vehicle for trips
around town or to my favorite outdoor
get aways. I've added several upgrades
i.e. better stereo components,
retractable cargo cover, cargo mat,
bike racks, etc. Even looked into
adding a supercharger or VTEC kit to
add some extra horsepower but refrained
because the CRV has enough horses to
suit my purposes.
Now that the 2002 CRV has been
introduced, a 1998-2001 model makes for
a great used car bargain.
Excellent reliability, good balance and
ride, economical, just does everything
well. I love it because it is a
excellent all around hauler for those
who do not need to tow much, and do not
need to go off road.
A little more power, a little less
noise, and four wheel disc brakes which
have been addressed by the 2002 model.
Wish Honda would put a better stereo
and larger disc brakes in all their
