2008 Honda CR-V EX-L 4dr SUV w/Navigation (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

Review

This is a fun little SUV, even though I can see some improvements. Note: I call it the Pug, because it's like an English Bull Dog. I drive this thing all over the Mojave (in So Cal) and it has survived my driving with few complaints. I did have a dead battery (that was covered under warranty) and I have had to replace the tires (after only 30,000 Miles). I have the leather seats and I have noticed some cracking on some of the vinyl side panels. Gas mileage has been an average 26 Miles per gallon. The Navi is useful, but has room for software improvements. I have added goodyear fortera tripletred tires, and after an alignment, got the best ride I've ever got in a Honda. But at $1k, I should have!

Favorite Features

Ride (with better tires), XM radio & Navi and it lives up to being a Honda!

Suggested Improvements

Dump the Bridgestone Tires! Improve the Leather seats, Needs Bluetooth (added to 2010 models) and maybe a 6 cylinder option to the AWD. Miss the Full Spare in the Back!
