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


Review

Nice automobile, but for an EX-L it is a bare bones equipment. Put 5500 miles on so far. Acceleration has gotten better, mileage good but the seats are awful. I have never had such a sore behind in my life. My wife and I are of small build and the seat is firm right in the middle where your tailbone rides. My tailbone feels like its on fire in just ten minutes of driving, hers too, either seat. Its going to the upholstery shop soon. If he can't fix it then it will be sold. Who designed those seats. They must be like the accord seats everybody complains about. Called Honda, they don't seem interested in helping me out, see the dealer.


Best Features

Fuel mileage. After driving lincolns and Fords this car is like a stripped down version of what we were used to. No garage door opener, no keyless, etc.


Worst Features

Fix Those Seats, they are terrible!!!!!! I even asked a few of my passengers what they thought of the seats in this Honda. No one said they were comfortable. Most commented about the pressure in the middle of the seat. The first panel of leather has a seam across the seat right where your tail bone rests. This magnifies the pressure you get from the seat. I also bought a new Ford Fusion. Those seats are like riding on air compared to this Honda.

Review

CRV EX-L. It has heated leather seats. We've had hondas, Accords and Odyssey, before, which were very good vehicles: reliable, great value, good performance, comfortable, etc., so thought this would be a good choice. Issues: headlights, tranny, radio, info screen. Seems as though part of the headlights are blocked, and even more so with with the high-beams on. Tranny: test drive seemed very smooth, but later noticed that when decelerating then give it gas there is good amount of delay in the acceleration. Can't you go with 6 speed? Radio: Really? lower grad than what I had in my 1995 Accord. Why put that in top-end model. Info screen: was this project complete?


Best Features

Improved style outside. Extremely efficient with space.


Worst Features

Put more luxury into EX-L. Radio is cheap. Interior trim is cheap. Could be a little bigger. Put in 6 speed tranny. Fix the headlights - this is reduction of functionality. Stop resting on your successes.

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


Review

We parked my 2013 Honda CR-V on a < 30 degree incline, put it in park and turned off the engine. After going behind it, opening the hatch and taking out 2 bags it began to roll backward. I had the car for only 3 months and have had no warning of any problem. I have reported this to NHTSA and am waiting for a resolution but will not drive this car again. As a side note: even though I drive with ECO on, I have never gotten close to 30mpg. The best is around 25.


Worst Features

A full investigation needs to be done and a recall issued before someone is killed.

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


Review

First drive was across central Oregon at 60 mph. Note speed limit is only 55. But 35.4 mpg for the first tank fillup is pretty darn good. Wind that day was calm and dry roads. Since then it's only been around town with an average speed of 27 to 29 mph. With that I'm getting 29 to 30 mpg.


Best Features

I'm 6' 2" and average build. Seats are very comfortable. Load it up with three adults and 2 children and still feels like a lot of room. Very well designed.


Worst Features

I have been using Garmin GPS for years. Really miss the "speed limit" tag on display. And several times I've jumped into the co-pilot seat to play with the nav/radio system and have been "locked out", unable to practice or help the driver. Note, when in "drive" most features are disabled from the dash mounted unit. Those features are only available thru steering wheel buttons and voice commands. Suggestion, have some sort of an override similar to the air bag OFF feature. When someone is occupying that co-pilot seat, enable an override for example.
