2012 Honda CR-V LX 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

We have nothing but praise for this vehicle. The only things we would like to see improved is the keyless remote and the road noise. You need to be very close to the car for it to work and the road noise is very loud.

Review

I got what I paid for with my CRV, safe/reliable/efficient transportation, with great resale value.
It's my third Honda, but after driving the new Mazda CX-5 recently I'm tempted to defect to Mazda.....

Review

Purchased June 2012. Driven over 10,000 miles.
Fun to drive, comfortable, safe, reliable, with good gas mileage and lots of storage room for tools and spare parts.. I use it for personal transportation and as a work vehicle for real estate maintenance. Back up camera and maintenance minder are nice features. Replaced weak OEM headlight bulbs with X-treme power Phillips bulbs and @ 10,200 miles replaced surface cracked rear brake rotors with new ,
manufactured in Italy, brake rotors and new brake pads.


Best Features

powerful engine great air conditioning back up camera maintenance minder lots of room in rear with seats down great gas mileage short hood and engine compartment wide doors tilt steering wheel all instrumentation visible smooth transmission


Worst Features

brighter headlights roof rails and crossbars standard on all trims alloy wheels standard on all trims larger battery higher quality brake rotors

Review

My girlfriend bought a 2012 CRV LX 2WD last summer. I've been driving it recently so I decided to share my experience. The CRV is comfortable and easy to drive. The seats are supportive and very comfortable. The engine provides adequate power and the transmission shifts are smooth.
The brakes work well and stops are confident.
The CRV handles reasonably well but the steering is somewhat disconnected. For most people it's fine.
Visibility out the front and sides are good but the rear window is very small and the visibility out the rear is terrible.
Fortunately the back up camera is standard on all models. The sound system is good.
We're getting 27-29 mpg in mixed rural driving.


Best Features

Excellent fuel economy, very comfortable seats, standard bluetooth and USB audio/charging, plenty of space inside. The sliding center console is very convenient and provides extra storage on top of the console when closed.


Worst Features

The rear window is tiny severely limiting visibility out the back. The mechanical key can only open the drivers door (there is no externally accessible lock on the passenger door, or the hatch). To open the hatch you need to use the remote, or unlock the front door with the key and use the controls on the door (a disadvantage for me). I prefer the 60/40 folding seats in the opposite configuration, with the 60 on the passenger side (like Subaru). It's not easy to shift the automatic transmission manually. I live in a hilly area and would prefer and easy to use manual shift mode. The roof rails are an expensive option.
