2002 Honda CR-V SUV EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Bought this Honda (first and last one) used with 88,000 km and a little warranty left. Noticed that it consumed about 1 liter of oil every 3000 km. Took it to the dealer - he said it is normal for Hondas (????) At 112,000 km had to replace engine. Luckily air conditioning is working fine. Not happy. Not the greatest gas mileage either. Very noisy on the highway - can not hear radio clearly. Will never buy Honda again.


Best Features

Roomy and thoughtful interior with nice touches like folding middle table between front seats, extra non-sleep shelves in the front.

2002 Honda CR-V SUV EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Bought this car new and have 138K on it now.
Has been a great car, very few problems.
Driver's door window motor broke, and both rear brake calipers froze up around 75K, but other than that no problems.
Great in the snow, comfortable, definitely not a luxury vehicle but love all the room and versatility.
It handles like a little go cart...not tippy like some SUV's.


Best Features

Versatility, reliability, fun to drive, good gas mileage (25mpg city or hwy...does not change)


Worst Features

Road noise

2002 Honda CR-V SUV LX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This review is not to bash the Honda, but let people be aware of potential problems with this vehicle. At about 70k km. the power steering pump had to be replaced, no a big deal since it was under warranty. At around 80k km. both rear wheel bearings had to be replaced – under warranty. Once the vehicle was off warranty the following items had to be replaced – all wheel bearings, the whole struts assembly (over $1200), ABS sensor, catalytic converter (over $1000), recently my u-joints “went” but they cannot be replace – the whole drive-shaft has to be replaced (over $1000). Currently some bushings should be replaced but I am putting this off, and seat belt sensor is not working ($300).


Best Features

Cargo space, little table, back seats


Worst Features

Quality, road noise, fuel economy.

2002 Honda CR-V SUV LX AWD 4dr SUV w/ Side Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I love my CR-V, drive more than average, never have had any major problems just regular expected maintenance. Honda's are just built like rocks, this is my third and not my last!


Best Features

AWD, Roominess (it's amazing what you can pack in this little SUV!). Tough, it's gone places that some folks would need a jeep!


Worst Features

I admit a V6 would be heavenly but I hate to sacrifice any gas mileage.
