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


Review

This is a great little car. It is super for going to the grocery store or cruising for garage sales. The car is super dependable! I love the short turning radius. One even feels comfortable on long trips. One note: I had a clicking sound in the back at 23K and they changed the differential fluid for free. My wife had the same problem with her 06 cr-v at 39K and they charged her $159 because they said it should have been changed at 30K. My next car? Another Honda CR-V!!


Best Features

Comfortable seating, quick heating, great storage room, good handling, good engine!


Worst Features

Get stick on mirrors for side mirrors to help see around center post blind spot. Listen for clicking in rear when differential fluid breaks down earlier than usual. Tires may only last 40K or so.

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


Review

Purchased Memorial Day 2006. Replaced 2004 Silverado. Performs normal household hauling duties quite well. Taken a couple of short trips with excellent results. Consistently good mileage. Comfortable for four adults. Great egress. Great visibility. Plan to have it for many years.


Best Features

Fuel economy, great dealership service, fun to drive


Worst Features

Would prefer a true console over the cup holder/tray, but if that's my only complaint...

Review

We purchased new in Feb. 2006. Since, we have driven from Washington, DC, to Fairbanks, Alaska and have driven it around Alaska for almost 2 years. Let's just say that driving conditions in Alaska are less than ideal: it's Winter 8 months of the year, and most roads outside Anchorage and Fairbanks are not paved. Despite the fact that our CR/V has been less than pampered, we have had zero problems. It was also the least expensive in its class, considering that many of its standard features are options on the RAV-4.


Best Features

Reliability, reliability, reliability. Oh, and also handling, fuel economy, and price.


Worst Features

None.

Review

The CRV replaced a 2000 Lexus RX 300. I wanted a car that would haul a lot of stuff, be driven around town without guzzling gas, be good on long hauls, behave reliably, yet able to be driven aggressively. The CRV fulfills all the above except the long haul issue. After 38,000 miles and not a bit of trouble, it confirms Honda's reputation in building reliable, very drivable, affordable vehicles. The engine and transmission shine. Although a 4 cylinder, it really behaves like a small 6. Once you start taking drives longer than 1 to 3 hours though, lookout, it's not very comfortable. And the noise! That's always been Honda's Achille's heel. In summary, local yes, long drives no.


Best Features

Roomy, powerful 4, the heated seats (!), full size spare, excellent transmission, unparalleled visibility, great crash test specs, good gas mileage (21/27 for us),listed as a small SUV but seems like a midsize.


Worst Features

Better paint job. When is Honda going to insulate their smaller vehicles better? The road noise is enough to drive a guy (or girl) wild!

Review

I was looking for an all wheel drive utility vehicle that didn't drive like a truck and would be reliable for 150k miles or more. I'm very satisfield with the ride, gas mileage, handling, and acceleration. Other competitors I test drove (RAV4, Forester) didn't seem to have the handling and smooth acceleration of the CR-V.


Best Features

Smooth change to AWD, can't really sense it. Great visibility, extra storage under the rear floor. Peppy engine, no hesitation when accelerating onto the interstate.


Worst Features

Variable speed wipers.
