2011 Honda CR-V SE 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Researched for months, was concerned by reports of lack of power and excessive road noise. Test drove 3 CRVs; the 3rd was so quiet and fun to drive (shod with the much criticised Continental tires), both in town and on the highway. Remarkable, considering some negative reviews. No hesitation buying this CRV -- replaced my aging faithful V6 Odyssey minivan. Fuel economy of 25 mpg so far in mixed 70:30 town:highway driving, but I do have a light foot. Very pleased.

Best Features

Pro's: Quiet, smooth ride on all but roughest surfaces (don't know why some report excessive road noise but I have heard it's due to rear end misalignment); fun to drive; feels solid and well built; transmission shifts smoothly; engine revs when needed but not intrusive; because the engine revs ~2,000 rpm @ 70 mph it's a comfortable highway cruiser; seats v comfortable and well supported; love the precision steering and firm but muted suspension. What's all the fuss about power? There is plenty of umph, be it in town or on the highway (I heard Honda had a TSB in December 2010 to reprogram the master computer which resolved the power/hesitancy previously reported -- seems to have worked!!

Worst Features

Would like a full size spare -- few makers supply this today; managed to squeeze a full size in the original well as described in the CRV owner's forum Manual shift should be available No real complaints, just "wants"
