Buy a CRV, 20mpg is a lot better than 13
By Steve Sparks on


2006 Honda CR-V EX 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


I can understand the frustration of people that expected 23mpg. The tag on the car says that is a national average. The small print says 19 to 23. I am getting 20 in the city. The XM Ready thing might be considered mis-leading but that logo is the industry standard for telling people they need to buy a receiver. Over all the CRV is working out great. I added the arm rest, day/night mirror, window tint, rubber matts and other features. All should be part of the base but it would make the CRV cost more. I think overall its a good buy and will hold value when other cars lose value. If you add one thing at the dealer, get the mirror and tinting. It makes for better over all driving experience.

Best Features

The size is nice, even for a former Ford F150 Supercrew driver. The 2.4L engine is peppy and gets you through traffic. The back door and the hatch window are good for loading gear and easy access. The window in the back is nice when you need to carry that ladder or 2x4 that is 12'.

Worst Features

Better reduction in road noise, more options for the EX such as Day/Night Mirror and a navigation system. Honda also needs to educate the dealers better on XM and how it works. The worst option is the Ipod Honda Link. It does not work as expected.
