I bought my NEW Honda CR-V in Feb 2010. It was assembled in Mexico. On the basis of reliability reputation of 'Honda', I decided to buy CR-V out of 3 choices- CR-V, RAV4 and Subaru Forester. In Feb 2010, Toyota was giving very good deal (0% APR) and Forester was rated the best. However, price for RAV4 and Forester was $1000 more than CR-V LX. As I thought I got good deal and I don't have any 'Brand' biasness, I bought CR-V. After 2yrs and driving 21,000 miles, it needs tire changed costing me $850. I am disappointed. Honda did not keep up its reputation. Plastic things fall off, clock runs fast, CD player get very hot within short time. Make noise when starts moving due to loose plastic...
Love my CRV. It's everything I hoped it would be. Great size not to big but comfortable for 4 people. Plenty of room to haul things by dropping back seats and flipping them up out of the way. Nice cargo area for my standard poodle to ride and also has heavy duty clip connected to back of seat to snap my dogs lease to. Heater and A/C are excellent are work well along with heated seats. Easy to get in and out of when I had bad knees And even better after knee replacements. Enjoy leather seats and are holding up very well. No complaints with vehicle Has plenty of power even when in heavy traffic in cities. Just had to replace my original tires first big expense. Like that I have plenty of head and leg room which most vehicles I looked at didn't have this benefit. I'm almost 5'10".
This has been one of the best vehicles I have ever owned. This car replaced my Toyota Tacoma pick-up and had big shoes to fill in doing that, happily I can say it more than served it's purpose for me and my family. From simply around town errand driving to long road trips, this zippy car is comfortable, has great pick-up, is safe in the wind and rain and is an all around great car. It looks like a Lexus when it has had a wash!
I've owned my 2010 CR-V since August, 2013 when I purchased it with only 13,000 miles on the clock. Now with more than 137,000 miles, this vehicle keeps right on keepin' on. I work at four different part-time jobs during the week and my shortest commute is 42 miles each way. The CR-V rides smoothly and trouble-free. Both of my kids are youth hockey goalies and it handles the gear well (if we have both kids at the same time, you have to get creative). Long trips (two-to-six hours) are handled well as the car provides a comfortable ride, and I like the idea of sitting high (better for a sometimes-cranky back). Gas mileage is decent, as I average about 22-23 mpg during the winter months (New Jersey has a crappier blend of gas during the winter) and it jumps to 24-26 mpg once the summer blend is back in the pumps. I estimate that I can go between 360-400 miles on a tank of gas with ease. Last summer, I was battling a finicky a/c system that would shut off from time to time. My dealer has serviced it several times and I think it's finally cured, but we'll find out for sure when temps go up in a few months. With winter weather, my CR-V handles modest snow pretty well. I never make the mistake of thinking I still own a Jeep Cherokee. But in most snowy conditions and heavy rain, the car does well. Tech-wise, it's a little behind the times now, but by hooking up my iPhone, using a GPS and satellite radio, I can drive and talk hands-free with all the conveniences I need. Overall, I'd say my CR-V is the most reliable vehicle I've owned. It's silver and still looks great. My Honda techs say I should make 250,000 miles with ease and I expect at some point I'll pass this vehicle on to my daughter. Would I buy another one? Absolutely. So if you're looking for a reliable, multi-functional vehicle with plenty of cargo room, I'd say go find a 2010 CR-V with modest miles on it and you won't go wrong!
I purchased my CR-V in the spring of 2010. It was ordered from the factory and arrived a month after ordering. My biggest complaint with the car is the open front seat floor area. Cans, bottles, etc can roll from the back seat into the front seat & under the pedals. Having said that, I LOVE this little suv!!! Yes, it's a bit sluggish on the acceleration. If you wanted a sports car BUY a sportscar!!! I have taken this vehicle off roading and it performs very well. First set of tires seemed to go rather quickly but the tires that came with it were not the highest quality. I have 25,000 miles on it and am still having fun with it!
