2004 Honda CR-V EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This is the first car I ever bought myself and I've been VERY happy with it for the past year, racking up almsot 20K miles. The engine is powerful enough for a 60 mile round-trip daily commute on the DC Beltway & I-95, but not so powerful that it gives you poor gas milage (I get 26/27 mpg). There is no need for a V6 with this car, despite what other reviews say. It's a nice size, handles well, and is easy to park -- no problems getting into a space in any lot, garage, or street location. It's a great commuter car and road trip car rolled into one. Safety features are great, and it was certainly worth upgrading to the EX to get them.


Best Features

Moonroof; 6-CD changer; AWD; well-appointed interior/storage area; fuel milage; picnic table is a very clever addition. It's not ugly like the RAV4 or a station wagon knock-off like the Forester - the CR-V is a manly small SUV.


Worst Features

Small, cosmetic changes, mostly: heated side mirrors; better stereo system; variable speed wipers; storage bin below passenger seat falls off track easily; arms rests are not at right height; power driver seat would be nice; road noise with open windows on highway is bad.

2004 Honda CR-V EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

With the limited time I have owned the vehicle, it has performed perfectly and for the price, you cannot beat the safety features of the SUV.


Best Features

Side Impact Air Bags All of its safety features, that is what prompted me to purchase the SUV, along with the dependablity of Honda.


Worst Features

Take the spare off of the rear door.

2004 Honda CR-V EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

since my mom purchased the CR-V it has been a phenomenal vehicle. it has the reliability that you anticipate from a honda and it is fun to drive. compared to the rav4, the CR-V has a better, more, refined looked to it, and the interior materials, seats and it is very spacious for a compact-midsize SUV. for the first year of ownership my mom has had no problems and her vehicle is rattle free. good fuel economy and enough power to shoot you across town.


Best Features

automatic shifter gate (very unique), fold and tumble seats (dont have to remove the head rests), numerous storage areas, spacious interior, fun to drive, great gas mileage, feels more than its worth, competant suv


Worst Features

more sound dedaning materials, make abs brakes standard across the board, a navigation system, make fog lights standard, nothing much just those. overall great job honda! keep it up!

2004 Honda CR-V LX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This CR-V is my first Honda. After owning chevy's, Mazda, and Toyota, these vehicles don't have near the quality that is put into this vehicle. The ride is sooo comfortable it's unreal. My only drawback with ALL cars today is the gas mileage. With today's gas prices you would think that auto makers would get on the ball and make them ALL more efficient. Still, I get about 24 mpg as i do alot of highway driving. The inside is very roomy with everything displayed well where i don't have to do any reaching. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for an suv that is classy, comfortable and well affordable.


Best Features

everything is at my fingertips..no reaching. Stereo sound is great for having only 4 speakers, I particularly like the parking brake right on the dash.


Worst Features

As with any vehicle today, gas mileage needs to be improved.

Review

Extremely roomy - 27mpg highway. Had 8 large pieces of luggage, 4 people and 5 carry ons in the car with all of the doors shut. In my opinion, this SUV is the best in its class. I would highly recommend this car to everyone!!


Best Features

Cargo room


Worst Features

Allow the seats to fold flat into the floor.
