2004 Honda CR-V EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


I bought my 2004 CR-V new and took delivery in Nov. 03. Basically a good car but not a great one. The well known A/C problem became a problem for me in the 90,000 mile range in August. I live in Connecticut and we don't use A/C much but in August you really need it. The repair was $1500 and Honda covered $900 of it as good faith. At about 105,000 the throttle body went and I shelled out $1000 for that repair. Based on the dealers absolute confusion on what was wrong I don't think this was a common occurrence for the CR-V. The sun visor broke off in my hand and cost $100 to replace. The drivers seat belt broke but was covered under the lifetime guarantee on seat belts.

Best Features

The tumble forward rear seats and cargo space. Spunky engine and good transmission.

Worst Features

Paint, throttle body, a/c, rear door, tires, MPG, seat belts and sun visor. What happened to Honda reliability?? I have a love/hate relationship with this car but would probably buy another one.
