1998 Honda CR-V EX 4dr SUV AWD


At 126 horsepower you better live in an area where there aren't any hills! I live in WNY, in the Allegany Highlands and climbing the hills around here it sounds like the car is going to blow-up. Also, I am only averaging 20 MPG which for a 4 cylinder is horrible. When it rain the ABS light stays on until it dries out. No arm rest for the front passenger. For the top-of-the-line model the seats are not very comfortable. Fogs up inside during the winter or wet weather. Latch to open the back gate rusts up all the time due to poor location and design. Very disappointed for being a Honda.

Best Features

AWD is great in the snow. The CD player is standard.

Worst Features

More power! An arm rest for the front passenger! Better seats and a standard roof rack!
