It is so smooth and consistent, I can say I'd drive it for the rest of my life.

2005 Honda CR-V EX SE

Even with high mileage, excellent consistent performance. Decent gas mileage, would 10/10 buy as reliable, affordable commuter car. Gets me back and forth about 1,200 mi to visit home for less than $150.00 and back and forth to work (about 40 mi round trip) for less than $40.00 a week. Comfortable interior means I'm always happy to sit and listen to some audio. Heated seats, sunroof, and a picnic table in the back to hide the second area you can store tires. All wheel drive makes for a very nice traction, especially when a trailer is hitched up.

Leather heated seats with a sunroof

2005 Honda CR-V EX SE

Love the leather seats, especially the heated seat feature. It's great during the winter. It drives well in bad conditions like snow, rain, etc. A year ago I was in an accident and was hit by two cars, and I was jostled a little bit but nothing too extreme. The car had a couple of dents, but everything was fixed pretty easily. The car can definitely take a hit. Great for college students who pack a lot in their cars.

My Honda CR-V 2005 is good but is getting old

2005 Honda CR-V EX SE

Makes noises when driving or going over bumps, but this is due to a previous car accident. I need to get it looked at by a mechanic at least once a year to see if it is safe. Has good gas mileage. Has good amenities that come with the car, like cup holders, extra compartments, a large trunk, and room for passengers. This car is very reliable and I would continue using Honda as a company

Great car to own. I've had very few problems.

2005 Honda CR-V EX SE

Only problem I have ever had besides routine maintenance is the A/C compressor broke. Otherwise I have really enjoyed my Honda CR-V. The gas mileage is great and it easy to drive. There is no other maintenance that has been needed on this car. I've had it for 6 years
