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


Review

I drove an '01 SE till late '06 and was very satisfied. I just recently, 6/5/09, bought an '06 EX w/ 14k miles on it. Needed 4WD to get to WV but wanted the mileage too. Definitely not disappointed. Drive 30 miles to work each day - averaging 32 MPG. Drove a good distance to buy vehicle which was described as "pristine". Was not even close w/ scratches, chips, etc. Saw CR- V's with 50k miles in better condition. But overall, I am pleased w/ the vehicle.


Best Features

4wd, reclining rear seats, stg compartments, 6-cd changer, steering whl mounted controls


Worst Features

Use plastic that is more scratch resistant on the inside.

2006 Honda CR-V Special Edition 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Overall the 2006 CR-V is a wonderful SUV, viewpoints very similar to all that have been said previously. Fuel economy could be better, I fill up sometimes 2 times per week, but the gas prices don't help either. I love the gated rear as opposed to my RX300 I "wrecked" last year..the CR-V was the replacement. The SUV is a little boring, miss my electric everything I will say. Radio is average, road noise is loud, comfort not bad.


Best Features

roomy, a lot of nooks and crannies to put things, gear shift funny location but works, car looks great


Worst Features

power everything, better radio, better paint job, too easy to chip and scratch

2006 Honda CR-V Special Edition 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I have had this car for exactly 3 years and 69000 miles. It's used for around town and many extended rides of up to 3 to 6 hours each way (the distance to our daughters' colleges). No problems. Handling surprisingly good, better than RX300 we had. Interior is huge, cargo space deceptively large. Perfect back for Golden Retrievers. Fabulous visibility. Very good in bad weather. However, road noise becomes tiresome after an hour. Sound system is just adequate. And my 57 yr old rear end gets sore on long rides (I'm 5'8" and 143lb). If you're going to spend lots of time on commutes or long drives, treat yourself to something more luxo. But for around town and near, it can't be beat.


Best Features

Interior space, reliability, handling, mileage. Feels like a 6, not a 4 cylinder.


Worst Features

Honda paint. Annoying chips. Road and tire noise as well as uncomfortable seating on long trips. But it's not a luxury SUV, so it is what it is.

Review

This is a reliable car. It is comfortable with kids and car seats, or adults on the commute. The gas mileage is better than listed. With a roof box, we fit 2 adults, 2 kids, a large dog, skis and equipment.


Best Features

I like the cargo space.


Worst Features

The space between the front seats is awkward. The folding cup holder creates unusable space.

Review

I really like this car because it is inexpensive to buy and operate, and it never breaks down. However, the ride is very rough. Fortunately I have a short commute to work, but it is tiresome to travel long distances because of the pounding you take from road anomalies. Fair amount of road noise as well. The car handles well on straight highways but feels precarious on curves.


Best Features

Dashboard controls are very intuitive and easy to operate. Leather seats and moonroof.


Worst Features

Get a better suspension system and a better stereo system.
