2006 Honda CR-V EX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Car has several problems, not including a couple of rattles. Car has always had an idle problem that results in hesitation in the mid RPM range. Honda will not fix the problem because they are in denial. Most likely cause is a bad throttle sensor. Very annoying and dangerous (the car can fail to turn off the throttle). In addition, the rear differential is binding.


Suggested Improvements

This will be my last Honda, not because of the mechanical problems but because of the reluctance of Honda USA to honor the warranty. This car is more trouble than it is worth. Hate to drive this car because of the sticky throttle.

2006 Honda CR-V EX 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

We have owned Hondas since 1976. This (2006 CRV) is by far the worst one. It drives like a truck without a suspension. Poor gas mileage (22 mpg) and very noisy. Very restricted leg room.


Favorite Features

Loading capability.


Suggested Improvements

Improve gas mileage. Reduce the noise. Change the suspension. Improve the leg room.

Review

Leased the car for my wife in 2006, no brainer decision to buy out the lease at present. The car has been perfect for the wife and small child as a daily driver and well suited for extended family drives/vacations. Sight lines are excellent, functionality is superb with the exception of the hinged back gate - would prefer an overhead rear door. Peppy enough to be fun and strong enough (AWD) for Philadelphia snow. Mileage is disappointing - Accords with the same engine get much better mileage - we've yet to break the 28MPG barrier on the hwy. 6-disc player and sound system is high quality. Reclining rear seats are nice. Overall this is a high value, very functional, simple car.


Suggested Improvements

Rear gate should be overhead, better gas mileage.

Review

This vehicle fell short of what I expected from a Honda product. I began hearing noise from the rear end at about 15,000 miles. I had repeated problems with the audio system,as well. Most recently at 38,000 miles, the airbag sensor light goes on once in a while. Forget about any help from Honda when the warranty expires. My local Honda dealer charges $100 an hour and does not provide free loaner cars. I'm back to Toyotas after this experience with Honda. A UK built Honda can be identified by the the first digit of the VIN being a "S".


Favorite Features

It is a comfortable car to drive. I would recommend the 5 speed manual transmission. The automatic transmission seems to struggle on the hills.
