2003 Honda CR-V EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Note I also own a 2000 CR-V. Honda improved upon the last CR-V, but they also cheapened it up. Our 2003, bought new, has had more problems than the last 10 cars I have had combined. Alternator, door actuator, two door light switches, carpet is crap, dashboard "plastic" can be visibly scratched with a fingernail, paint is easily chipped. I also understand the A/C should crap out at any time. Honda also still have the 4wd service listed at 100K miles, not 30K like what is required. The dealer has been helpful, but it's unbelievable for a Honda to be like this. Fortunately, my parents got a 2007 CR-V and, suffice to say, Honda learned their lesson!

Favorite Features

The interior is HUGE. Our 2003 Auto has more power than our 2000 manual, is bigger, and has more safety gear yet gets only 2-3 MPG less in most driving.

Suggested Improvements

Seat that doesn't start to wobble before the warranties out, overall parts and quality improvement, 5spd auto and refine the drivetrain for better MPG.
