One Of The Worst

1997 Honda CR-V 4dr SUV AWD


This car has quality issues. The 1st
reason is that the car started stalling
on me. It stalled on the freeway a
number of times and on the street, it
is an automatic transmission. 2nd, this
car is way underpowered. I had trouble
accelerating onto freeways. 3rd, the
car handles poorly. The car is front
heavy. This makes it diffcult to
manuver and avoids things. 4th, the
steering wheel is in an awkward
position, like a van, and is not
adjustable. We got the car brand new
from the dealer and used it a lot but
took good care of it. My guess is that
we probably got a lemon, but that is
our first and last experience with

Best Features

There is a lot of back seat room. Easy to get in and out of car.

Worst Features

Using a high quality ignition switch. We took it to the dealer to have it checked 3 times, they said there was nothing wrong with the car or the switch. They only replaced the ignition switch after there was a recall. Better stock stereo system.
