2006 Honda CR-V Special Edition 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


The CRV replaced a 2000 Lexus RX 300. I wanted a car that would haul a lot of stuff, be driven around town without guzzling gas, be good on long hauls, behave reliably, yet able to be driven aggressively. The CRV fulfills all the above except the long haul issue. After 38,000 miles and not a bit of trouble, it confirms Honda's reputation in building reliable, very drivable, affordable vehicles. The engine and transmission shine. Although a 4 cylinder, it really behaves like a small 6. Once you start taking drives longer than 1 to 3 hours though, lookout, it's not very comfortable. And the noise! That's always been Honda's Achille's heel. In summary, local yes, long drives no.

Best Features

Roomy, powerful 4, the heated seats (!), full size spare, excellent transmission, unparalleled visibility, great crash test specs, good gas mileage (21/27 for us),listed as a small SUV but seems like a midsize.

Worst Features

Better paint job. When is Honda going to insulate their smaller vehicles better? The road noise is enough to drive a guy (or girl) wild!
