2009 Honda CR-V SUV EX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I bought my CR-V from Peoria, IL on December 4, 2008. In summer, I found the AC was not cooling properly I took to the same dealer, they tested and said I should run the AC at Max, CR-V AC performance as it is. This summer, AC was not cooling I took a different dealer, they filled up with gas and they couldn't found the leakage. - When I start the CR-V it makes buzzing noise, it started at beginning of last winter, I took it to a Honda dealer, and they said it's not a safety problem and they are not going to fix it. Besides, I have problems with door lock too. My CR-V is 1.5 years old with a mileage of 18,000 miles and should be covered under warranty?


Best Features

-Handling and Turning


Worst Features

- AC performance - Engine improvement - Noise reduction - HONDA's needs to improve its customer commitment and services

2009 Honda CR-V SUV EX-L 4dr SUV AWD w/Navigation (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This is not the first CR-V that I have owned. I find it very comfortable to drive. Handles well and has more than enough power. I like the interior styling but find that it is somewhat cheaply made and marks up fairly easily. Gas mileage is fairly consistent around 20-22 mpg city and 23-25 highway. Nice fun to drive vehicle. I would not recommend the navigation system. Routing is not very good and updates are very expensive (get a Garmin or Magellan instead).


Best Features

Comfortable, shifter up fairly high leaves opening between seats.


Worst Features

Navigation system that works decently.

2009 Honda CR-V SUV EX 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

The Ex model I have gets great MPG, about 24 city and 32 highway. The MPG gauge is great I try my best to keep it at 30 or above whenever I drive-sure does help to coast to stops and be gentle on the gas pedal. The car is very comfortable on around town trips- longer trips do make you stiff, but hours in any car can do that. The fit and finish is wonderful and the layout of the dash is good. I had a 1998 CR-V and this one is much better overall.


Best Features

MPG gauge and service reminder tool. Also like the folding cargo shelf - wish it had a storage place built in when you have large items however.


Worst Features

I wish it did not have the black plastic bumpers and trim. Back hatch door is sometimes difficult to close-a strap or auto close feature would be nice to have

Review

I have been well pleased with my CR-V. It get better gas mileage than I expected and it has ample room for a small SUV. The one downfall is the tires. It came with Bridgestone Dueler H/T 470 tires. At 17.000 miles they are worn out. I went to the tire dealer and was told there is no warranty on that tire. I went to the Honda dealer and was told by the service manager that they sell cars and are not in the tire business. A few minutes later he offered to sell me new tires, to which I reminded him that they are not in the tire business. I think it is a shame that a manufacturer sells a car for $24000, but, cuts corners on quality by using CHEAP tires


Worst Features

Better quality tires

Review

I found a New 2009 CR-V still avail in Thousand Oaks CA & opted for that to save $ - LOVE IT. I drive a lot and usually hate getting in a car but I'm enjoying the comfort. My small complaints are the tires they chose - very hard ride and NOISY if you open the windows above 50 mph. I wish it had an auto headlight & wiper on/off (as my Jeep Gd. Cherokee had) but that is my only "Wish" - I'm not raving about the mileage, and it's obviously better than my 8cy, its just not THAT much greater - and I wish it had a little more "oomph" I LOVE the car - Very happy - LOVE the Nav (didn't think I'd really use it) it helps a LOT from an ATM or gas location to a restaurant. So cool!! Happy Owner here.


Best Features

Leather steering wheel location & size is right for me as I'm short, reach to dash features is perfect, love the Nav, sunglasses holder, XM radio, and leather seats are comfy. Like the overall size for an SUV -and small glove box for accessibility


Worst Features

Auto Headlight & Wipers (on and off); LARGER CENTER ARM rests for driver and passenger, I also have trouble figuring out the wipers, still can't get them right & rear keeps going on. WOOD TRIM from Factory (I know buy a Lexus or Acura for that). There also must be better tires than Bridgestone
