2011 Honda CR-V SUV LX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I bought 2011 CRV LX 4WD a few weeks ago, so far driving is ok. Not feel like 180 horse power.But OK for commute. Interior quality just So so. I found one thing seams not right, it is the tail pipe getting black, finger gets black if you touch the inside of the pipe. (I only drove 400 KM). If anybody can tell me it is normal or not? I have another new car Nissan Sentra, looks much better at the inside pipe a lot of cleaner. Please help comment

2011 Honda CR-V SUV EX-L 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Took delivery on my 2011 EX-L two weeks ago and its a tidy, nimble little package . However the driver's seat is proving so uncomfortable that I can't drive it more than a few minutes at a time. The seat is too small, rock-hard, lumpy, badly contoured , unsupportive (thighs) and doesn't go back far enough. Honda needs to take a serious look at this issue...


Favorite Features

Appearance, handling, fuel economy. Nice fit and finish.


Suggested Improvements

Seat comfort....I'll probably have to get rid of this car because of it. The seats are simply designed for very small people.

Review

I own a Honda CRV with 40.000 km (approx 26k MIles) on the clock and the engine mounting bolts just sheared straight off. We are very lucky that we are alive to write this post as the engine dropped through the bay. Honda though, despite risking our lives, is trying to screw us by saying it is not covered under warranty. We are disgusted and outraged that Honda Australia is refusing to cover us for a major defect in their car, that is life threatening and obviously a design flaw They have a severe issue with the curent CRV model and are refusing to accept responsibility.


Favorite Features

None, if the car can kill my family whats there to like?


Suggested Improvements

Accept that you have a problem Honda, if the engine falls out of the car because bolts sheer in half you really think you can get away with not accepting there is a problem here?

Review

Updating CRV bought new June 2011. Recent 3,000 mile trip across US, down to Mexico was a good test: 1) Excellent fuel economy -- ave 31 mpg overall 2) packed in more luggage than seemed possible 3) Very comfortable, fun to drive 4) smooth, excellent steering, sturdy suspension 5) amazingly stable to heavy cross winds


Favorite Features

Large package in a small car; folding seats afford excellent storage capacity (although not as big the CRV replaced my Odyssey van, not bad) Fun to drive, sharp breaks compared to soggy Toyota's Great in town AND on the highway; excellent cruiser Love the rubbery grip steering wheel + controls Has lots of power; no problems overtaking on highway, just kick down smooth tranny and zip up to 85 mph Top notch smooth, quiet 4 cylinder -- turns over at 2200 rpm @ 70 mph, incredible Love watching the fuel meter, good for keeping a light foot!


Suggested Improvements

Rear hatch lifts too high -- I already scratched it on the garage door hinges; new owners beware!! A 5- or 6-speed manual transmission would be nice Get rid of that silly small doughnut spare; I replaced mine with a full size spare that can be squeezed in the tire well; feel more comfortable in the middle of the desert now! Could be quieter on rough road surfaces; needs more work on wind noise
