1998 Honda CR-V EX 4dr SUV AWD


Buying a Honda, we thought we were
getting a reliable vehicle, but we
couldn't have been more disapponited.
We've had many quality issues that are
un-Honda-like, 1) transmission was just
replaced, 2) rear suspension replaced,
3) steering rack replaced, 4) other
minor annoyances like rear wiper NEVER
really gets the rain off, the vehicle is
noisy at highway speeds, the driver seat
doesn't go very far back, the steering
wheel is at an awkward angle to the
driver, the engine is underpowered, the
center console is useless, the cup
holders are a joke, and don't get me
started on the stupid radio-code needed
for the stereo (we bought used so we
never had this 'code') & now we can't
use the radio

Best Features

Lots of room and cargo space for a vehicle of this size, and the vehicle has never left us stranded. It's always tipped us off that it's having problems, which were many.

Worst Features

If you buy used, PURCHASE THE HONDA-CARE EXTENDED WARRANTY & find out what the radio code is - otherwise dealer will charge you $90 to get the S/N off the stereo & find the code for you.
