Purchased it new, now have 37,500 miles on the CRV. The gas mileage is fantastic. Around town always at least 29mpg, a trip from Aiken to Charleston , total trip on state highways got 38.7mpg on entire trip. Trips on interstate highways at 70+mph we get about 32.5 MPG. Vibration at stop lights, yes. The vibration is not unbearable and considering the price of the vehicle and outstanding MPG very tolerable. I tow a 15' aluminum utility boat and the CRV does fine. Maintenance, no issues here. Since buying the car new, nothing other than oil changes. Again considering the reasonable price, the CRV is very comfortable for short or long trips. Easy to get in and out. Rear seats easy to fold and the vehicle will hold a lot.
2015 Honda CR-V SUV Touring 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl CVT)
If you want an exciting and sporty ride, the CRV is probably not for you. It does everything well- accelerates and shifts smoothly, brakes well, and the right view camera will be sorely missed when I turn this car in. While testing other cars to replace my leased CRV Touring, I realize I am totally spoiled by the generous visors, simple controls, and other bells and whistles the car provides. What I won't miss: sloppy cornering (things will get "rearranged" during turns..), and a rather useless Nav. I ended up using my phone because it was such a hassle to try to get the Nav to manage the simplest of directions. The Entertainment system needs work as well-- when your USB cord touches the screen, it will change stations/functions, etc. Still, the CRV nicely appointed does not have the substance that most luxury cars have, but also costs about as much as some- in the high 30's. The seats are a rather cheap "leather"?, and after paying $750 for the dealer offered "stain treatment", the drivers seat quickly absorbed sweat/ suntan lotion and became discolored. All around great car but not a sporty ride, and the Nav and audio setup needs work.
2015 crv has left my wife stranded alone twice with only 60000 miles. Battery gave no warning, died completely at 30000 miles. Transmission module failed and transmission would not move at 60000 miles. No excuse for a Honda to leave any one stranded, especially a woman. Had to drive to her each time. Unsafe vehicle. Stay away from Honda CRV.
2015 Honda CR-V SUV EX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl CVT)
Bought this certified 2015 CRV for it's fuel economy, handling, reliability and massive sized storage space when the seats are all down. Grew up with Honda's and and this one is a fine example of why i'm still a fan. First week of ownership I drove with my son to Omaha in it from Philadelphia. Averaged 30 MPG for the 1200 mile trip. Good stuff: Drivers seat was plenty comfortable for 5 hour stretches behind the wheel. The electric lumbar adjust worked great. I love the handles built in to the side walls of the trunk which auto fold down the rear seats in one smooth motion. Great for loading large objects and furniture. CRV engine comes with a timing chain not a timing belt like my 2009 Civic so you don't have to pay big bucks to change it at 100K. Not so good stuff: The right hand side camera was a bit much for my taste. Would have been happier with blind spot warning lights on both sides not just the right side camera IMO. The radio does not come with a volume knob. Just a series of little buttons which you have to hunt for. Electronics are some what confusing. Great smaller sized SUV that doesn't feel to large.
