Pros: size of car
Cons: radio is a little out of reach.
Advice: Great BuyThe car is great. This is my first SUV and I am as comfortable in it as I was in my 4 door sedan.
Pros: The ride
Cons: a V-6 would be nice
Advice: It you want a Quality SUV the CRV is it.This vehicle is well detailed. It offers you alot for a small price. The power train is great. The gas milage is no less then 22 in the city and 25 on the highway going 75mph. What else can be said Its a HONDA
Pros: The roomy back storage.
Cons: The rattling rear door.
Advice: I would hestitate to purchase another CRV from Honda.I have had my CR-V for less than a month. It has stalled on me twice at a stop. I have taken back to the dealership and they admit that they don't know how to fix the problem. They have been in communication with the engineers at American Honda but they are not sure what the problem is. They have reprogramed the idle but it continues to stall.
Pros: I love the fact that I can pop the rear window remotely! The 6 disc CD changer is also very nice...
Cons: The seats could be more comfy
Advice: The features that come on the EX model are definitely worth the extra money - Get it.I orginally test drove this car about a week before I bought it. I liked the feel of the road, the handling is great. I had to wait about a week for my vehicle since I wanted it in silver (I didn't like the tan interior on the white - TACKY!). I like the fact the CRV handles like a car, especially since I have never owned anything but a 4 door sedan. I love this SUV, it's perfect for my needs as I have one child and am planning on another. My husband and I definitely didn't want a minivan, so this was the best choice. It looks great, lots of room and great mileage.
Pros: 160-hp 2.4L DOHC 4-cylinder engine
Cons: Some controls (radio esp.) hard to reach
Advice: Get your order in early ... you may have to waitBest small SUV I test drove. Many more comfort features than the other comparable import. The beefier engine really makes a remarkable difference over the pre-2002 models. Roomy and well-equipped for the price. Simplified equipment packages makes buying easy. EX interior has luxury-car feel.
Cons: trunk cover is an option
Advice: test drive this car and you'll fall in love!This car is great in all details. We purchased this car last week and we are still amazed. Buy this car and you will not regret. Consider the EX model as a good option.
Cons: I got the LX - interior is okay.
Advice: BUY ITI live in Alaska, okay. I test drove this car in the DEAD of winter. AWESOME! Fell in love instantly. My husband and I had been test driving vehicles all day. This one stood out above the other small SUVs.
