Not what I thought a Honda would be
By spdy3 on


2004 Honda CR-V LX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Bought for my wife used in 2007 with 18k miles.
It was a Honda certified.
It now has 142k miles.
A/C blew up at 60k (absolute dishonesty from Honda on this issue)
We complained to dealer and Honda; they both played dumb on the issue.
I printed off many complaints on this from this site and Honda reluctantly agreed to cover except $800.
O2 Sensors went out at 80k.
The front strut mounts have gone out several times (we live on a 1/4 long dirt road).
Overall decent reliability except the A/C.
Honda skimped on everything from the A/C, to the complete lack of sound deadening and suspension travel.
Handles well but rides horribly.
I didn't see what my wife saw in the test drive.

Best Features

Decent MPG with AWD.

Worst Features

Dynamat doors and floor, tiny tires don't come in all terrain tread. Demand the newer A/C compressor WHEN yours blows up!
