ReviewMy wifes CRV...a great car with only one outstanding exception. Multiple complete Replacements of the rear brake systems, complete calipers and rotors. Due to complete lockups of the rear brakes, the first replacement of calipers and rotors was performed under warranty at about 16,000 miles. Honda covered it. Second replacement was and about 37,000 miles, Honda covered that even though past 36,000 miles. Dealer said a bad batch of calipers were used in the first replacement session. (OK, then why the 2nd freeze up?) Then a THIRD replacement was necessary of the calipers and rotors at about 58,000 due to another freezeup and warping the rotors, At our cost. Disappointing. Great Car though
Best FeaturesGreat Handling, Great AC, Super fast heat (2 minutes) for Rochester, NY weather.
Worst FeaturesBetter designed rear brake system, 2 inches more rear travel on drivers seat. Check engine light on due to cannister switch which requires complete cannister replacement.
