Disappointed in Honda

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


Between my wife and I we have owned four Hondas, 3 Accords and now 1 2003 CRV EX. We purchased each Honda new and all three Accords were fantastic reliable vehicles. I thought that I was a Honda customer for life. Then we bought a new 2003 CRV. It's now 6 years old with only 49K miles on it. We've replaced 2 sensors ($450), all four brake pads and rotors ($500) and now both front struts + a front end alignment ($600). I can understand all of these wear items around the 100K area, but not at 49K miles. In reading through other reviews, looks like I can expect the AC to go soon too. We'll try Toyota soon. Honda, learn from the quality errors of the big three, or you may be sorry.

Best Features

Roomy, table, comfortable ride and control and access.

Worst Features

More power - 6 cyl. and improved reliability as addressed by all of the problems we're having on a vehicle that sees very mild use.
