2003 Honda CR-V EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Bought this new in 2003 and have had few problems with it. The OEM tires are poor and had to be replaced at 24000 miles, but other than that, the car has been very reliable. Great in the snow and comfortable. Replaced the following: Back up light switch 50000 miles Resistor in blower motor 60,000 miles Brakes replaced at 100000 (pads) Battery 110000 miles Serpentine belt at 60000 and 120000 I have been advised to replace front struts due to leakage but as they still work fine I have ignored this. The rest has been normal scheduled maintenance.

Best Features

Driving position, moon roof, storage space

Worst Features

Fuel economy isn't great, 24-26 mpg. This would be a good car for Honda's diesel engine. The Bridgestone tires this car came with performed poorly in the snow and wore out quickly (thankfully).
