I have a 2016 that has had to have its radio replaced and now the second one is on the Fritz!! I have a major oil leak and , shifting roughness at just 31,000 miles. It’s fine through 2 batteries and on top of that Honda hasn’t been the best at customer service . I am really disappointed in the quality of the car. It’s a nice car but I can’t belive it’s having the issues that it is at 2 years old and 31,000 miles.
Have a 2017 manual trans. Hate the parking brake system - dinky little button to pull up or push down and a small PARK light on the dashboard. Needs to have an alert beep that you have not engaged the park brake when parking the vehicle. Twice now, this car has rolled in a parking lot while I was gone! Bring back the parking brake handle PLEASE!!!!
2017 Honda HR-V SUV LX 4dr SUV AWD (1.8L 4cyl CVT)
Great for fuel mileage and traction. Not comfortable to sit in for any period of time, no room for teenage kids. Cruise control is “wonky”, dealership charges an arm and a leg for maintenance.! Warranties/extra packages depreciate fast! Overall 2!
After only 40k miles the rear shocks were leaking and ruined my tires. The extended warranty does not cover tires. Obviously I was thinking no problem, the tires aren't worn out, the leaking shocks caused the feathering on the tires which caused excessive road noise and vibration. Although the defective shocks caused the problem the warranty still will not cover the tires. New (installed) tires are $250 each. Aside from that, the gas tank under the front seat is uncomfortable you cannot put your feet near the seat, only forward when resting your non driving leg. The charging ports are in the worst location ever. Don't expect to be able to reach them while driving. The cup holders are too deep or too short. Try putting a 16oz coffee cup in there. You can't get it back out and if you put the flap down to raise the cup up it will topple ever and spill. The seats are uncomfortable and make your lower back hurt. Had to turn the head rest backward or you have to slouch because it's angled so far forward. The interior material is very cheap as is the rest of the car. The plastic handle jams and is going to break any day now. This car is 1.5 years old with lots of highway miles. The only thing I REALLY like is how the back seats flip up or lay down for more storage. Good price point but I guess you get what you pay for. 36 mpg average is good too.
