Best Fuel Efficiency in an SUV
By Allen G. on

Vehicle

2005 Honda CR-V LX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

Review

My wife and I are touring musicians and although we would have preferred to buy a hybrid to get better fuel efficiency, we needed an SUV that would fit all of our gear. However, this car totally amazed us! We average about 35,000 miles per year and have been getting up to 33mpg on the highway even though the EPA only lists it at around 26mpg. This car is extremely comfortable, safe, and reliable. My mother just recently bought a new CR-V based on my recommendation and experience with ours.

Favorite Features

The included table in the back is a nice perk, and the 30+ mpg on an SUV is unbelievable!

Suggested Improvements

The lack of a navigation system and bluetooth for my phone was disappointing, but I think the newer models now come with them optional.
