2007 Honda CR-V LX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I bought my V new in 07'. It's been a good car with it's versatility, roominess and comfortable on trips and great road manners. But it has had some problems; engine replaced, drive pulley replaced, constant high pitched squeal with AC on at low fan speed (found TSB for- let's see if dealer will honor), and several squeaks and rattles. I've owned other Honda's, including a V, which is still in the family w/ 189K miles, but I don't think this one will last as long. I'm def. looking to trade it in already. I'm not saying people shouldn't buy the CR-V, but I would advise not to expect the same longevity as previous Honda models.
Comfortable ride and comfortable seats, stock stereo, AUX jack, space, exterior design, and reclining rear seats.
Either improve gas mileage, or improve power. The vehicle is terribly slow, AND gas mileage is not great. Also, reduce the Torque Management at WOT from a stop. Terrible lag at take off under heavy throttle.
