CR-V Best Built in its class
By CMurphy on


2005 Honda CR-V LX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


If you're the type that drives cars
long after the payments are over, this
is definitely the car for you. It
costs less to own over five years than
its competitors because its virtually
maintenance free thanks to a timing
chain instead of a timing belt. The
oil change interval is 5K miles and the
first tune up is at 100K miles.
Extremely easy to drive and will handle
off-road, but prefers pavement. The
interior is spacious and cargo is
generous - carries a mountain bike with
rear seats folded down. Sleek sporty
design takes you from a soccer game to
a night on the town. Lots of extra
features available a la carte. Best
deal for your money, hands down, and
fun to own so you'll keep it.

Best Features

5 cup holders, 2 sunglass holders, a picnic table, storage hideaways, folding tray, arm rests, middle back seat 3 point harness, attractive dash with color options, xta HP 4 cyl = good performance and gas mileage (20-25mpg), nice quality materials inside, attractive exterior, gotta see for yourself.

Worst Features

On the LX you get the basics and have to pay a la carte for some features that come standard with its peers. Alloy wheels, keyless remote entry and side impact air bags, among other niceties, will have to be added unless you buy the AWD EX. Still, the CR-V is worth the price if you keep a car long
