105000 miles and still loving

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Honda CR-V LX AWD 4dr SUV w/ Side Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I bought this CR-V and I don't regret it one bit! At 65000 miles, the AC compressor blew up, I had been warned this might happen with this particular model. My dealer replaced the entire AC system under warranty with no problems after that. 100,000 miles rolled on by and I have never had any issues, mechanical or other with this car. The sunroof is still smooth, no rattles or noises, still solid and smooth. I do wish the seats were more supportive, but that is just about my only complaint. I'm looking to upgrade to a new car next year, and I'm looking forward to the 2012 model.




Solid car, great value

Vehicle: 2004 Honda CR-V LX AWD 4dr SUV w/ Side Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I travel extensively for business and have put 20000 miles on the CRV in the first year. The CRV is a sturdy car. It cools quickly in summer and heats quickly in winter. The handling is solid. The driver's seat could use some additional lumbar support. Road noise is pronounced. Back seat is very comfortable for adults--I'm 6 feet tall and have no trouble riding in the back. I wish the mileage was a little better. I've maxed out at 24 mpg on long trips. In addition to being my primary work car, it's the alternate family vehicle (our other is a 2000 Odyssey). No problem with 3 kids in tne back. I'm very pleased overall with the CRV.




The best suv for your

Vehicle: 2004 Honda CR-V LX AWD 4dr SUV w/ Side Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I bought another Honda CRV only because it reliable and I gave my old CRV to future wife. My old CRV have 182,000 miles on it and never gave me any trouble. When I bought this car the dealer ask me if I wanted to take it for a test drive. I simple told him "NO". He look at me like I am crazy. I told him that my old car was driving like a charm. I felt there was need to test drive it because it reliable and dependable. I got my money worth on my 1999 CRV and I am expecting it to drive to 300,000. I am hoping the quality doesn't slip with my new Honda CRV compare to my 1999 Honda CRV since it was made in Japan. The only thing I am not crazy about is the emergency brake




We would move in

We just built new dream house, but the wife and I keep finding excuses to leave home in the C-RV. Wife recently joked- Why not just move into the Honda. My cat even insists on being an unwanted " hood ornament " Is this real or are we merely victims of new car smell delerium? Our " second car ", a Toyota camry, was recently washed and waxed by me out of a sense of guilt due to " Camry abandonment". I have searched the medical literature for AUTOMOTIVE LOVE and research recommends " See Psychiatry"

Best in it's class.

I've owned cars ranging from luxury to utility. This is without a doubt the only vehicle I've owned wich offers everything I need. The 4WD has gotten me out of some tight spots on slick roads and on the other hand it looks great! Would recommend for family or singles. You won't be disappointed.
