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


If you're the type that drives cars long after the payments are over, this is definitely the car for you. It costs less to own over five years than its competitors because its virtually maintenance free thanks to a timing chain instead of a timing belt. The oil change interval is 5K miles and the first tune up is at 100K miles. Extremely easy to drive and will handle off-road, but prefers pavement. The interior is spacious and cargo is generous - carries a mountain bike with rear seats folded down. Sleek sporty design takes you from a soccer game to a night on the town. Lots of extra features available a la carte. Best deal for your money, hands down, and fun to own so you'll keep it.

Best Features

5 cup holders, 2 sunglass holders, a picnic table, storage hideaways, folding tray, arm rests, middle back seat 3 point harness, attractive dash with color options, xta HP 4 cyl = good performance and gas mileage (20-25mpg), nice quality materials inside, attractive exterior, gotta see for yourself.

Worst Features

On the LX you get the basics and have to pay a la carte for some features that come standard with its peers. Alloy wheels, keyless remote entry and side impact air bags, among other niceties, will have to be added unless you buy the AWD EX. Still, the CR-V is worth the price if you keep a car long
