2003 Honda CR-V LX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Bought my 2000 Honda as a second car so I would not tear up my Eclipse...found myself not even wanting to drive my other car. As a matter of fact I have only started my Eclipse up once since I bought my Honda to make sure it would start.. Honda has spoiled me.. wish I had bought the CRV first...am thinking of trading both for a brand new CRV.


Best Features

My favorite feature would be the space. Totally swept away with this SUV.


Worst Features

More horsepower would be a definite improvement.

2003 Honda CR-V LX AWD 4dr SUV w/ Side Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Two weeks after purchace, drove to Canada from So Cal. We averaged 26 miles/gal for the whole trip, with air- conditioning running, freeway, city, mountain and off road. This car never skipped a beat and kept us very comfortable. While there is plenty of leg room in the rear seat area, my 6'1" body wold like the front seat to slide back about one more click. It isn't bad but that would be nice. It has plenty of power to handle every situation and a very large cargo area with or without the rear seats folded down. We are campers, Kayakers and white water rafters so space is very important to us.


Best Features

camping table built into the car that actually works. Four cylinder engine with a better power curve than many V6s


Worst Features

Let the front seat(drivers)slide back one more click and put more space between the front roof rack and the rear.

Review

Too soon to tell about durability, but I have Great Expectations. Overall, I'm very happy, but there are a few ergonomic glitches that need work. The dash mount shift lever is too easily confused with the wiper lever, steering wheel is too stiff and heavy for one-hand steering, and the OEM tires are very poorly rated at tire racks website. ABS not avail on LX.


Best Features

Great view of the world, excellent seating position. Compared to my 1990 pickup truck, the auto door locks, lights, CD, mirror adj, etc seem deluxe.


Worst Features

Needs ABS, better OEM tires, shift lever re-design, more seat height adjustment, and sunvisors that wont block so much of the view.

Review

The CR-V is not a car I would have walked onto a lot and chose myself. I got my CR-V as a Christmas gift and I couldn't be happier with what was chosen for me. With 2 young kids and a lot of traveling, this is the perfect size car for us. It has enough room to haul everything, but designed so well that it doesn't feel like I am driving a huge truck.


Best Features

I enjoy everything in the car. There is nothing I would say bad about it.


Worst Features

Personally, I don't see the point of the picnic table under the back floor.

Review

I love my CRV.I wouldn't have any other vehicle.It is the best looking vehicle, it is tough looking, sporty, great family vehicle, power is great, and everytime I look at it, especially standing back, it makes me feel good at what I purchased.I haven't ever been pleased with a vehicle like this one and I have had 5 others and I'm only 24.


Best Features

The body, the brake shift, the 6 cd changer, the table, all wheel drive, the power, the room, mostly I just love the way it looks.


Worst Features

Radio controls on the steering wheel, small rear camera, that is all I can think.
