Nearly perfect MINI SUV except power
By wz4wwk on
2001 Honda CR-V LX 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
It is a Honda, and as expected, its
reliability, build quality, and comfort
make a nearly perfect balance.
As far as a mini SUVs are concerned,
you can't beat CR-V's interior space.
One thing that makes me say that it is
only a 'near' perfect about this car is
its fuel economy and power. My 2001 CR-
V LX is slower than my Mom's 11-year
old 1991 Accord EX on uphill freeways.
I constantly get about 22.5 MPG
(combined) which is worse than my other
car (1999 Nissan Maxima with automatic
transmission). How does Honda explain
that a 4-cyl 2.0 liter engine gets
poorer MPG than a 6-cyl 3.0 liter
Overall design is sooooooo cute.
knob. Spacious interior. Fold-away
cup holders in the center.
No power on uphill freeway. Poor gas
mileage compared to its performance.
Grade-logic transmission is frustrating
when it will not upshift even at 3,500
RPM on a not-so-uphill street.
