It makes a great first car!

My 2003 Honda CR-V has been running for the last 16 years with 230,000 miles on it! The starter finally died after 15 of those years. It's a pain to replace the starter as you have to remove the engine block to get to it. Good thing the starter lasts practically forever! The vehicle is very reliable with excellent gas mileage (28 mpg). It makes a great first car, mine has been through two accidents in each of which, it should have been damaged. However, this car only suffered a mere scratch and dent from both accidents! The vehicle is very spacious with plenty of legroom all around. The back seats fold down allowing for large cargo to be transported in the back of the vehicle. My only criticism regarding this vehicle is two wheel drive, definitely purchase a four wheel drive vehicle if your planning on winter driving. Also, changing the fuses below the steering wheel are challenging as the driver's seat only moves back so far. I'm a rather lean and limber individual and even then I still had trouble replacing those fuses under the steering wheel! If you take of the car responsibly though, don't be surprised if you get 400,000 miles on it. Even though mine has went for only 230,000 miles, I feel that it has a lot of life still in it.

Honda CR-V a wonderful SUV!

The car is 2003 with 132k miles and runs great. I have no problems with my car. It drives smooth. Starts up every single time. It is also all wheel drive so it is great during the winter when it is bad outside with snow and ice. It also drives well in the rain. It has no rust on it which is great for being a 2003. I have had no issues with it whatsoever. I have done the normal oil changes and up keep which helps all cars but having no problems is great. The inside of the car is very big has lots of space. It has a big trunk with lots of storage space you can also put the seats down in the back to get even more space. I have a family of 5 we all fit with plenty of room. The back has 3 seats the front is two seats. It had a space in middle with a little desk in between seats that can raise up or down. It has 2 storage spaces under radio for whatever you need which is great. It also has a storage area under the passenger seat. The car can hook up to belts on car seat so you your child is double protected hook those up and also the seatbelt which is what we do with the car seats. It has great ac and heat. If looking for an SUV I would highly recommend this SUV at least look at it and take it for a test drive you will not be disappointed.

Honda CR-V '03 is a fantastic all year round family vehicle.

Honda CRV is a reliable model. The spare tire on the back of the vehicle makes changing a tire easy. The 4 wheel drive works great. The check engine light is always on because we haven't taken it in for maintenance. We do our own maintenance so the light just stays on. Our Honda is easy to work on and easy to use. I love the 6 disc CD changer and the radio is good as well. There is a back tire that tends to make a noise like metal rubbing from time to time. We just changed the brakes and the noise is almost nonexistent. I can fit 3 car seats in the back seat. The back seats fold down to make a large cargo area in the back. I love that the back hatch opens to the side and the window can be opened by itself. I have recommended this vehicle to my friends and neighbors.
