Still Kicking after 175,000 Miles!

1998 Honda CR-V EX 4dr SUV AWD


My Honda has been reliable since day 1. Starts every time. Great AWD performance. Very comfy, lower to ground for short people like me. Keep w maintenance schedule and you should have no problems. I have some underbelly rust on exhaust system after 10 years, but I live ON the L.I. Sound, literally. Salt water daily on or near car. Can't be helped. Car is old but excellent performance still. Radiator went at 170K.

Best Features

Starts every time. Great visibility. Love the AWD. For what you get, this SUV is priced excellently. I will 90% get another CR-V soon and how boring is that? But I want same performance & reliability.

Worst Features

Kind of loud inside. Only 4 cylinder (which I need b/c I have lead foot) but w/ fat people in car, not great w huge hills. This is improved in newer models.
