My last 3 cars have been Nissan's, but
I wanted to try an SUV, and always
liked the features in the CRV, Plus I
figured you could not go wrong with a
Honda as far as reliability was
concerned. Wrong. The car has less
than 4ooo miles and I've had to the
dealer 4 times for a check engine
light problem, the last time smoke was
pouring in the car. The interior
molding is Cheap! If you even brush by
it with a backpack or shoe it's
scratched. Carpeting is cheap and
piling. And my gas milege is under
20 mpg. I wish I had bought the no-
frills Ford explorer for a little bit
more, but I am stuck with it. I will
never buy another Honda!
MPG 25-27 for first 6200 miles. Sure
footed in rain and snow. Wife is
principal driver and this is her favorite
car or truck of the many we have
owned.. Comfortable with plenty of
room for all her "stuff". Loves 6CD
changer. Good seats with room for
adults in the back seats. Loads of
storage nooks. EX is loaded and
maintains its value. Ours is black
and color blends nicely with none
metal exterior trim.
Dealer was a jerk. Charged for roof
rack saying it could not be removed.
Caused wind noise as he did not
also install shield over the moon
roof. Rack was removed in 15
minutes and I was given a refund.
Dealer aside. Great car for the
We should get what the Canadians get!
Ambient air temperature gauge and
heated seats - it gets cold in New
Hampshire y'know! Also, what would it
cost them, 50 cents or less to have
mutiple settings for the wiper delay?!
The one wiper setting doesn't cut it.
This is my first non-Toyota and I love
it. My last vehicle was a '97 RAV-4,
and while I loved it, I wasn't
impressed with the 2002 model. The
Honda is bigger, faster and more
comfortable, which is why I switched
to Honda. I also found the price to be
better for the options I wanted.
High tail lights, no center console
which takes up room, folding back
seats and a back window that actually
Bigger tires, passenger side door
lock/unlock button, better quality
material for the inside door handles
(the material used now gets damaged
way too easily!).
