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


Review

The CR-V is fun to drive and has plenty of power. It has great visibility which makes in town driving and parking a breeze. Not a single problem in the first 30,000 miles. MPG is 24 around town and almost 30 on the road.


Best Features

Getting in and out , large doors and good seat height and position. Lots of interior room with rear seats that adjust to accommodate almost any load.


Worst Features

The road noise could be improved on. Maybe they could apply some undercoating like we used to get from the dealerships.

Review

Bought this for my new 16 year old girls, after my Odyssey died at 230,000 miles and getting myself a Pilot. The girls love this car! They can fit all their friends in it VERY comfortably, and have claimed they can fit over ten people in it if arranged correctly. The AUX jack is handy, and one daughter loves plugging iPhone in and being able to listen to music through it AND can talk through the car (without bluetooth!). Very VERY safe. Have never doubted Honda's reliability and never will. The girls have to fill up their tank, maybe once a week, and they do no highway driving, so they fuel economy is great! So impressed!


Best Features

CD/AUX features, AC/Heating system, interior design, safety features, seat belt warnings, and all the cup holders and other places to store things!


Worst Features

too much plastic on exterior and cloth seats stain too easily

Review

I have driven this sweet little SUV for 17 months and average 26 to 27 MPG on the highway and around 23 in town. It burns regular gas which is nice, it can comfortably seat 4 adults and hold 4 sets of golf clubs. It hauls my drums, go skiing, its great around town and the highway. I sold my Acura RDX turbo that got 14 mpg around town and burned premium gas. This is so much more economical. The rear seats recline, its all wheel drive when you need it. Its 4 banger engine is peppy. I had after market leather and heated seats added. You can't go wrong with this sweet little SUV! It a great little SUV!


Best Features

6 disc in dash CD All Wheel drive Cargo area Comfortable seats


Worst Features

It needs to have the fog lights standard on the EX and auto dimming rear view mirror.

Review

This car is great in the snow and it rides well. The gas mileage averages about 23 town and 28 highway. Tires are balding at 30,000 and rear brakes started grinding. Honda does not want to honor Warranty saying brakes are wear items, even though service repair guy said that the pads had frozen in place. This is not normal wear. You should not need pads and rotors at 30,000 miles


Best Features

AWD - car is great in the snow!


Worst Features

Better tires - Better braking system.
