2008 Honda CR-V LX 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I traded my 01 Nissan Altima in for an 08 Honda cr-v. I started my car search at Honda, and five months later, finished it at Honda. This car is excellent to drive. It is my first new car (I've had 3 used ones in the past), and am completely sure I made the right decision.


Best Features

Exterior look, all the little compartments


Worst Features

arm rests.

2008 Honda CR-V EX-L 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

15,000 miles and hasn't needed any warranty work whatsoever! Terrific drive and very comfortable; decent visibility helped by height off ground. Enough oomph to not be frustrating. Up to 34 MPG at 55 - 60 MPH. In town I can average as low as 22 MPG when it involves very short trips (1 - 2 miles at a time) and you would think 25 MPG would be more the norm. However, when my in-town driving goes over 3 - 5 miles at a time, my average does go up to between. Too bad Honda does offer this wonderful car with a manual transmission. I test drove the Toyota RAV4, Subaru Forester and Mitsubishi Outlander. Honda is more comfortable and maintenance-free car.


Best Features

Seating Comfort Display/Instrument Layout Low Maintenance


Worst Features

Rear and Side Visibility Stronger Sheet Metal Give me my manual transmission!

Review

I had a Trooper and I wanted a SUV with better fuel economy. I considered the RAV4 but I went with the CR-V because I thought it was a better built car. I think I made a wise choice and it has been what I had expected.


Best Features

Fuel economy and still able to haul things around.


Worst Features

More power would be nice, but this would probably decrease gas mileage.

Review

I've had this CR-V for 3 months now. I have not had one disappointing moment. It drive just like a car. I don't have problems passing other cars or trucks. I've been to NY and it gave me 28 miles to the gallon. Around the city I get 23 miles but the combo is 21/22. I totally love this car. This should have been the first car I purchase instead I went in the opposite direction and purchased a 2007 Dodge Caliber (one of the worst cars on the road).


Best Features

Height adjuster/drivers seat, reclining rear seats, steering wheel adjustment, so many cup holders, middle island,


Worst Features

larger/more storage space, standard- should be 6 speakers, standard-should be trunk shelf, car mats, arm rest- should 2 in longer,
