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.
My favorite feature would be the
space. Totally swept away with this
2003 Honda CR-V LX AWD 4dr SUV w/ Side Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
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

actually works. Four cylinder engine
with a better power curve than many V6s
Let the front seat(drivers)slide back
one more click and put more space
between the front roof rack and the
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.
Great view of the world, excellent
seating position. Compared to my
1990 pickup truck, the auto door
locks, lights, CD, mirror adj, etc
Needs ABS, better OEM tires, shift
lever re-design, more seat height
adjustment, and sunvisors that wont
block so much of the view.
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.
I enjoy everything in the car. There is
nothing I would say bad about it.
Personally, I don't see the point of
the picnic table under the back floor.

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