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


We test drove a lot of SUV's-a lot. The sticker shock was, well, shocking. With this Honda, though too small to classify as an SUV, was exactly what we were looking for. The interior quality really sets it apart and was not seen anywhere in this price range. It is very roomy, drives exceptionally well, is quite nimble and gets good gas mileage. However, it is woefully underpowered. This "car/suv" is a great alternative to spending mid forties on another vehicle. And what's really nice, in five years this Honda will have the same trade in value as that 45K SUV we liked and almost bought.

Best Features

Quality or material. It has an Excellent ride, its very tight and it has the best crash and safety rating to keep my wife safe.

Worst Features

It needs a bigger engine or a turbo because this is about 100 horses underpowered. 0-60 in a week.
