2013 Honda CR-V SUV EX-L 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Owned this car for 15,000 miles. The seats are hard and crowned in the middle. Tried to fix them with the help of an upholstery shop. unless you are very large or very young you will not like these seats. They get very painful the more you drive this car. I believe the car critics are a bunch of biased reviewers. How could anyone miss the fact that these seats are this terrible. A friend at work wife has a CR-V and he says the same thing. Bought an Escape and it makes the Honda look and feel like it was a ten year old car. On a hot day we had to put the fan on high and turn temp to 65 and it barely worked.


Best Features

The Honda name.


Worst Features

Fix those awful seats. Get the Air to work like it should. Improve the terrible towing capacity rating (1000 lb). I can buy cars with a better tow rating. Change the wiper control so down is off just like a light switch, not up for off??????? Put a door lock button in hatch. Put a blind spot mirror on the right side just like the left. allow the driver to operate the windows when the window lock is ON. Stop cutting corners to build a less expensive car. Like most foreign cars you could only buy them equipped a certain way. There are very little choices for the consumer. Had to pay over $3,000 just to get the power seats after all the packages were included.

2013 Honda CR-V SUV EX-L w/Rear Entertainment 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I bought this car for my wife to replace her aging 03 Honda Pilot. Overall it has been a very good car. Easy to drive, plenty of interior room, very comfortable on long trips, and excellent highway mpgs. Last month, saw over 35 mpg at 70 mph. City mileage, running errands mpg drops to low 20's. I have changed the oil twice, replaced the cabin and air filter and the wipers. Has been dead reliable, uses no oil between oil changes. Very solid car!


Best Features

We love the Sat radio, very nice on long trips, the car eats up the miles on the highway. My kid loves the dvd player. The ease of changing the cabin filter is much appreciated after coming from the Pilot. It literally takes a minute to swap out the filter. No way I would pay the dealer $60. Under $20 on Amazon.


Worst Features

My wife wants more power, she just isn't use to Honda's lack of low end torque. You need to wind it up to get the power, but after coming from my 13 Fit, the CRV feels like a rocket. I think Honda did a solid job with this car.

Review

Generally pleased with latest incarnation of the CRV but has anyone come across the problem of a light rattling sound from the rear of the vehicle. After a couple of dealership trips (car under warranty) it turns out to be a couple of pebbles that have bounced into the shock absorber recesses at the rear. The only way to remove them was to use a pressure air blower. The dealer did this free the first time but I was charged when it happened again. The older version CRV did not have this problem. Also, the sound system is not as bassy as the old version. Not that it matters much to me but it's not as good as the sound system in the older CRV.


Worst Features

Fix the rattle at the back!!

Review

All around an excellent SUV, so roomy, I mean this thing has more room than a BMW X5. Honda utilitarian value, smart design, simple yet extremely practical , had one issue with a TSB on the Actuator, but that's it. I have a 2012 EX CRV with 22,000 miles, love it. very good on fuel, can carry 2 sets of golf clubs, 4 suitcases and 2 bikes on the back and still get excellent mileage. Luv this SUV. not the fanciest of SUV, but top marks for reliability and economical, utilitarian value! AWD Systems works great in the snow and very safe vehicle


Best Features

econ bottom, roomy back space. excellent fuel mileage and for a 2.4L 4CYL, this vehicle is excellent for power on the highway.


Worst Features

push button start and a redesigned interior, heated and cooled seats.
