Overall great vehicle for the price.

Bought the 2003 Honda CR-V used with 130k miles on it for around $7k. Had to replace the starter about 3 years later, otherwise no major repairs needed. Drives great, but not great gas mileage. AWD is fantastic! Drove to work and back on snow and ice with no problems, no skids, no loss of traction. Overall great vehicle for short distance driving. Great storage capacity also. Capable of moving large furniture, 8' boards, loads of boxes, etc. , also good for hauling boats or trailers.

Reliable, comfortable, and versatile.

This car is quite comfortable in both the front seat and rear seat. The rear storage area is roomy and easy to access. There is a roof rack that is useful,2 have used it for a bike rack and a luggage carrier at different times. We are beginning to have battery issues, despite replacing the battery But the car is now 15 year old and has overall been very reliable. We have over work miles on it and expect it to last quite a while longer. I would definitely buy this car again.

Very Reliable Vehicle | Great on Gas Mileage!

I've had my Honda CR-V since 2012 and it's been a wonderful car. I've had a few problems with it over the years. I've had the Alternator and Starter both replaced. It currently has over 220,000 miles and is still going strong. I've taken it on multiple trips out-of-state and it's worked great! It's also very good on gas. If I chose to buy a new vehicle in the future, I would definitely consider another Honda, they are very reliable and stylish.
