Great Vehicle for What it Is
By mstrongin on


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


Had purchased the sports wagon I had always wanted about 18 months ago - a 2012 Audi A4 quattro turbo Avant. Loved the way that car looked and drove. But a few months ago I had back surgery and getting in and out of the Audi became problematic. Between back issues and not getting any younger (57) I started looking at small SUVs that had to meet certain criteria: wouldn't cost me anything after sale/trade in of my Audi; very comfortable seating; regular fuel and good mileage; lots of technology; high reliability. The CRV has all that. It's not great looking and nowhere near as much fun to drive as the Audi, but what it does well it does really well.

Best Features

Seating Position and Armrests, spaciousness of cabin.

Worst Features

Top of the line model should have power driver seat and power liftgate.

Most folks don't even think of Mazda because they have only just introduced a new model (the CX-5) that competes with the CR-V, Forester, RAV, etc. -- but it truly drives like a small sports sedan. In fact, it drives very much like my first car -- a 1969 BMW 2002 (Really!). Plus it has plenty of ground clearance, AWD and lots of gear hauling capacity, plus a very nice (but understated) interior akin to a VW Jetta.
