2004 Honda CR-V SUV 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 SUV LX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Smooth, comfortable ride with
both room to haul my stuff and room to
fit my whole family (including the dog)
with conversion by folding seats in
less then ten seconds. Very reliable
so far at my 15,000 mi/yr pace. Good
fuel efficiency for SUV. Good safety
ratings.

If I had to buy a new car today, I
would
buy the same car. Love it.


Best Features

Reliable. Smooth ride. Comfortable. Easy to convert from people-hauler to stuff-hauler with a quick flip forward of the rear seats, which has an impressive space to haul stuff. Very affordable for car in this class and with these features.


Worst Features

Radio controls moved closer to steering wheel so leaning over is not needed to operate buttons. Keyless remote standard on all models.

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.

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 SUV 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.
