We researched vehicles for years and after buying a used 1998 Honda Odyssey and being so impressed by how everything still worked well and was built so well, (unlike our GM vehicles, where everything breaks, ac vents, windows don't work, etc.), we decided we wanted some of that Honda reliability! We wanted a CRV so it would be easier to slip in & out of & still have room for people and my husbands drums when he plays with bands.
It accomodates everything and very well! I often look into other suvs in parking lots to see if they have as much room inside as our CRV and they never do, esp. in back. Other owners of CRVs up to 10 yrs old tell me they love it, no problems ever! It's a joy to own!
Love the color, mountain air, the sharp design, which all the other suv's have now copied! The back-up camera, MP3, usb, etc plugins, spacious interior and cargo area, great gas mileage 26/31, heated leather seats, easy to clean and slide into and out of, zippy acceleration, eco fuel saver button, lots of cup-holding spaces and cubbies for storage, very handy with grandchild aboard.
Beautiful, fun, affordable and most of all, so reliable.
Quiet the road noise. Usually not too bad unless road is rough, but most of them are a little.
Make EX-L more available and affordable.
