What Happened to Mine?
By NotSoHappyWithCrv on


1997 Honda CR-V 4dr SUV AWD


I know I bought mine used, but I have all the maintenance records and by reading the paperwork it looks like it was properly taken care of. But, it is falling apart. At 130K miles, I've had to replace the battery twice in the last two years. I had to replace the ignition (costing $700) six months ago - I had the local dealer do the work and now pieces of the dash board have fallen off and the steering wheel squeaks when I turn. The left channel on the radio goes out of hot days. The air conditioner will have to be re-charged this season. The PVC joints had to be replaced. All in all, it's a money pit. I get 16-18 MPG in the suburbs and 20MPG on the interstate. And electrical shocks too.

Best Features

I like the small size and the ability to drop the back seats for hauling stuff.

Worst Features

Reliability. Mine ranks along with my neighbor's Dodges and Chevys.
