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


Review

I have 7,500 miles on mine. Dependable
E solid. Quite a bit of wind noise
around the A pillar. We barely average
22 mpg in mixed city & highway driving.
Storage, the table, & the CD player are
great. However, no need for a picnic
table - rather have the spare tire
there. The 'check engine' light came on
after 5,000 miles. At first the dealer
was reluctant to look at it and claimed
that the problem was due to not
tightening the gas cap. I finally took
it to the dealer and they adjusted the
engine's computer program. No problems
since. I also test drove a Ford Escape.
Not near as solid, but more cargo
space. Quality led me to the CRV.


Best Features

Build quality and 6-disc CD.


Worst Features

Drop the picnic table and put the spare tire there instead. Make the back seats removable to allow for more cargo space. The middle head rest in the back seat prevents good vision out the back window. We've removed it, and it is laying on the floor. It is completely unnecessary.

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


Review

I bought my CRV "V" new in 2002 I have
had zero problems. I would like better
lumbar support, larger tires less
brake, road noise, and more bass in
the stereo. Utility is great I have
carried several large items which fit
into an exterior that appears too
small on the outside but fit
inside.The fit and finish are great as
is the rear leg room. I still think it
is the best sport ute for the money
getting the fuel economy it does. I
would hate to be my neighbor who owns
an suv so large he doesn't drive it
but once every few weeks to once a
month.


Best Features

utility, gas mileage, reliability


Worst Features

larger tires, less road noise

Review

If you want to hear about a safe
vehicle...I was hit head-on by a 16,000
lbs truck at 40 mph and walked away
with bruises and scrapes. The CR-V was
totaled, but my passenger and I were
fine.

Review

I put a lot of miles on my car. Bought
a Honda. Paid $26k for it out the door
(loaded) and the engine light keeps
coming on and the transmission just
locked up. Merry Christmas to me. I
hope it works out but beware. Hondas
are not unbreakable!


Best Features

I do love the look of the car and its comfort and fuel economy.


Worst Features

I am just going to cross my fingers that it can be fixed.
