1998 Honda CR-V LX 4dr SUV AWD


I got the CR-V when a deer killed my 1995 Nissan 4x4. I got a good deal on it and have owned a Honda Civic in the past so I bought it mostly on AWD capability and the Honda name. It was a great little commuter car - I drove 45 miles a day (one way) to school and work. I got about 22 MPG overall. The all weather capability of this vehicle is excellent - deep snow, light snow, rain - all good. I had 205/75R15 Uniroyal Laredo tires that I had put on it since I live in the sticks and drive gravel roads. Ride was a bit rough and loud but the traction was very good. I would recommend this brand and model to anyone - Just replaced it with a 2006 Honda Ridgeline.

Best Features

All Wheel Drive, swing out rear door, Honda reliability.

Worst Features

IMPORTANT - make sure you have the valves adjusted every 15000 miles - I did not and have a valve break because with the Honda 2.0L engines the valves do not loosen over time, they get tighter. It cost me $2000 to have the top end rebuilt. With proper maintenance though this SUV should last forever.
