2002 Honda CR-V LX 2WD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Pros: Door height - I don't bump my head getting in/out. Good little engine - strong, reliable Comfortable for around town driving Cons: 1. Air conditioning has gone out twice in last year. Bad compressor and dealer didn't offer me any deal, only a $3500 estimate. 1st time seals blew out, 2nd time bearings failed. 2. Black paint has white undercoat so every little scratch shows and it scratches VERY easily, despite frequent waxing. 3. Back seat legroom limited; OK for kids, tight for adults. 4. Has irritating rattle since new, especially when turning right. Dealer couldn't find cause under warranty. 5. If quality is so good, why does Honda have the worst warranty in the business?

Best Features

- Strong 4-cylinder engine - Good door height - Still tight (except one rattle since new) and drives well - Good gas mileage 26-28 in town up to 31 on highway at 70 mph

Worst Features

Better paint - Redesign air conditioner compressor or use reliable one from Pilot, or Acura - Add lumbar support for front seats - Make it quieter! It's so noisy, I can't even hear the CD player on the highway, in spite of buying some of the quietest rated tires on the market.
