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


Review

We bought the CRV EX with the intent of
using it as a second car and tow vehicle
behind our RV. It has since become the
primary transport vehicle over my wife's
99 EX Accord. We both like the way the
car drives and the convenience of a
wagon with good back seat and cargo
room. I can haul three FULL SIZE
golfing buddies and their golf bags
without strain and still get 23 - 25
MPG. The car works great as a tow
vehicle with all four wheels down. In
the year that we have had it, it has
only required routine service.


Best Features

Roomy back seat with adjustable seat backs and fore and aft travel adjustment. Seamless transition to all wheel drive and excellent handling and braking.


Worst Features

Get rid of the Bridgestone mud and snow tires (really noisy) and go with a Goodyear all weather tread. Install a full variable speed wiper control.

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


Review

We love everything about this vehicle -
great in the snow, lots of convenient
features for storage, loads of rear
seat legroom.


Best Features

ride, handling, all wheel drive, storage, rear seat room. typical Honda quality.


Worst Features

We should get what the Canadians get! Ambient air temperature gauge and heated seats - it gets cold in New Hampshire y'know! Also, what would it cost them, 50 cents or less to have mutiple settings for the wiper delay?! The one wiper setting doesn't cut it.

Review

My last 3 cars have been Nissan's, but
I wanted to try an SUV, and always
liked the features in the CRV, Plus I
figured you could not go wrong with a
Honda as far as reliability was
concerned. Wrong. The car has less
than 4ooo miles and I've had to the
dealer 4 times for a check engine
light problem, the last time smoke was
pouring in the car. The interior
molding is Cheap! If you even brush by
it with a backpack or shoe it's
scratched. Carpeting is cheap and
piling. And my gas milege is under
20 mpg. I wish I had bought the no-
frills Ford explorer for a little bit
more, but I am stuck with it. I will
never buy another Honda!


Best Features

Sunroof


Worst Features

Upgrade interior. Retractable antenna.

Review

MPG 25-27 for first 6200 miles. Sure
footed in rain and snow. Wife is
principal driver and this is her favorite
car or truck of the many we have
owned.. Comfortable with plenty of
room for all her "stuff". Loves 6CD
changer. Good seats with room for
adults in the back seats. Loads of
storage nooks. EX is loaded and
maintains its value. Ours is black
and color blends nicely with none
metal exterior trim.
Dealer was a jerk. Charged for roof
rack saying it could not be removed.
Caused wind noise as he did not
also install shield over the moon
roof. Rack was removed in 15
minutes and I was given a refund.
Dealer aside. Great car for the
money!


Best Features

CD, smart interior, seats


Worst Features

Make sure dealers are as good as Honda cars.
