Bought this car in Feb. 2011, and I still love it today like I did the day I bought it.
Honda quality, looks better than what they did to update it to 2012 (not sure what they were thinking about the back of the 2012 - looks weird), but the real thing here is value. I'm still amazed I could buy this car brand new for the low price I paid for it.
A 2011 Kia Sportage with similar options was a couple thousand dollars more.
Also, those complaining about road noise should have investigated that beforehand.
Honda never claimed this was a super quiet car.
Reliable, drives great, lots of room, looks great.
Intended to be a family car.
You want smooth and very quiet, then pay more next time.
been 8 months now and STILL
GREAT....we are soooooo happy with our choice...almost wish for snow to the the 4 wheel drive!!
but not just yat summer beckons!!
I would highly recommend a honda to anyone!!!
8 months after purchase and still has that "new car smell"
our crv now has 3300 miles on it and we just went from nj to newport ri on vacation.....still a fantastic vehicle...read some stories about tires wearing out early and some suspension bolt problems,but so far so good..despite high winds on the drive home this car was incredibly stable...glad we chose it
I purchased this vehicle in the past week after doing about a month of researching different vehicles online and visiting the dealership for test drives.As I am a college student I was not able to purchase the EX-L model but I am more than happy with the LX model I purchased.I drove pick up trucks all my life(F150/Ranger/Tacoma) so I needed a SUV that could pull a trailor but also wasn't bad on gas as my commute is going to be far.I test drove the new CX5,Rav4,Rogue, etc and found these to be the strong points on the Honda;smooth/quiet ride,most power(for the 4 cylinder),interior build quality and there sync system is amazing.I'm able to like/dislike Pandora songs from my steering wheel.
Bluetooth phone pairing standard on all CRV models. Nice LED information screen which is easy to read and you can customize it by setting your own wallpaper. Standard back up camera which displays on the LED info screen in the dash when your backing up in 3 different modes! The only model crossover which I liked just as much as the CRV was the 2013 Mazda Cx-5 but I found the Honda to have more power/better pickup, a quieter ride, and better standard features than the Mazda. The Mazda was the only vehicle that got better MPG's than the Honda but again it was more expensive and did not come with standard Bluetooth connectivity or a back camera.
Would of liked if the base model CRV had better looking rims but I'll replace those when I replace the tires.
