Honda is not keeping up

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


The CR-V drives nice when tires have less than 15k miles. After that road noise continues to increase to the point of major disillusionment. It's not the tires fault. It's the design. Honda relies on very soft, low mileage, tires on the CR-V to smooth out the harsh suspension. Do not put high mileage or fuel efficient tires on this vehicle! The suspension, or lack thereof, turns the CR-V with high Mileage or fuel efficient tires into a giant tuning fork. Steering feel is disconnected from the road but does react quickly to driver input. Makes me think of a video game. Lower end models with steel wheels do a little better. Already had to replace the AC compressor.

Best Features

Predicted resale. I hope sooner rather than later.

Worst Features

Design suspension to accept fuel efficient and long mileage tires. Reduce noise Auto headlights Heated seats should heat back Improve stereo sound quality Improve material around windows. Squeaks. Exterior paint quality. Worst I have owned in last 10 hrs. Dual zone air cooling overhaul needed
