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


Review

This is my first non-Toyota and I love
it. My last vehicle was a '97 RAV-4,
and while I loved it, I wasn't
impressed with the 2002 model. The
Honda is bigger, faster and more
comfortable, which is why I switched
to Honda. I also found the price to be
better for the options I wanted.


Best Features

High tail lights, no center console which takes up room, folding back seats and a back window that actually opens!


Worst Features

Bigger tires, passenger side door lock/unlock button, better quality material for the inside door handles (the material used now gets damaged way too easily!).

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


Review

My last 3 vehicles were Toyotas and I
said I would never get anything else,
but after test driving the CR-V and
comparing it to the RAV4 I
changed my mind. The CR-V is more
comfortable, has a smoother ride, and
the price was better and included more
standard options. Not so good is the
noise coming from my brakes. It only
happens after the car has been sitting
for a while and I push on the brakes
for the first time. The dealership
said a "clicking or groaning" noise is
normal, but I consider it a
loud "clunking" noise.


Best Features

6 changer CD player, no center console so you don't feel "boxed in", and the high-mounted tail lights. Oh, I also like the fact that the back seats fold up with ease, and the back window lifts open....my dogs like that too!


Worst Features

I would like to see bigger tires on the car, automatic door lock/unlock feature when the car is started and turned off (my RAV had that feature and I really miss it), as well as a door lock/unlock button on the front passenger door.

Vehicle

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


Review

This vehicle is flawless so far. Rides
very good, has better performance than
my 2001 model. This is the third new
Honda purchased from Hugh White Honda
of Columbus in three years.


Best Features

Excellent preformance, good gas milage and seems to be much safer than other cars in the family. The rearrangement of controls makes good sense, i.e.: power windows, etc.


Worst Features

Revert to the column shift.

Review

I have had this vehicle for eleven
months and have experienced only one
problem, the tires. The stock tires
are cheap junk. Other than that this
is an excellent vehicle for hauling
passengers in roomy comfort. The CRV
handles well (better tires would help),
is comfortable, and the 2.4 liter
engine is torquey and accelerates with
the best.

The transmission can be hard to get
into gear when downshifting from second
to first or when upshifting the same
two gears. The transmission needs some
improvement to make shifting smoother.


Best Features

The engine is flawless. It accelerates well and consumes little gas, even when pushed hard.


Worst Features

The tires and manual transmission need improvement. Better all season tires, perhaps even performance all season tires would benefit this vehicle. Also, the manual transmission needs some refinement, even though the dealership can't find any problem with the shifting.
