When you need a vehicle you can count on, the Honda CR-V will not let you down.

2006 Honda CR-V

My Honda CR-V is a great compact SUV, ultra-reliable, comfortable with great visibility, and with the excellent ground clearance and all wheel drive, it is nearly unstoppable in the winter! It is a bit noisy inside at certain speeds and the suspension can be somewhat harsh compared to newer or higher-end vehicles on hard bumps and railroad tracks, but nothing unforgivable. The factory stereo is mediocre at best but sounds decent and is easy and intuitive to operate while driving. Cargo carrying is a breeze with the barn-door style rear door and our dog can jump right in, but because it opens to the side, be careful as it can get caught by the wind and be forced open or closed. Mine also came with a cargo roof rack which is extremely useful in hauling large items, skis, snowboards, bikes and even lumber from the home improvement store. Fuel economy is around 23 mpg and acceptable for my average day to day use, but if you rack up extensive miles, you may want to look at the front wheel drive version which gets slightly better mpg. Bottom line: the 2006 Honda CR-V is an over-achiever for daily tasks, hauling, commuting, sports and family events, and offers outstanding performance in adverse weather, but will remind you occasionally that it is definitely not a luxury sedan.

Great control in snow/icy weather

2006 Honda CR-V LX

I love my Honda. It has been a trustworthy car for the past 6 years. I haven't had many issues besides normal wear and tear on the vehicle. Since Owning it I've had to get new tires, replace the timing belt and get new brakes. The car drive very well. I live in an area that we get lots of snow and ice and my car drives like a champ. I'm currently at 217,000 miles and I expect to make it to 300,000 in it. The gas mileage isn't super great, but I guess that is to be expected with how old the car is. As for features, I have the basic model so nothing to fancy. It does have AWD and passenger airbags as well. It has auto cruise control which make it great for long commutes. I wish the seats had more adjustability, but you are only able to slide forward and back not up and down. The car is extremely safe. I've only been in one accident where I was hit by a car merging who didn't see me. I wasn't hurt at all and the car sustained some damage but overall it was extremely sturdy. The only complaint I have is the noise in the cab of the vehicle, it's pretty loud even when everything in the car is functioning properly, luckily the stereo system is pretty great and helps me cover up the highway noise. I would most definitely recommended the CR-V to anyone who is looking.

Honda CR-V, a long-lasting car with great features.

2006 Honda CR-V EX

We have had to do several maintenance repairs on the car because of its age and it has over 200,000 miles. We've had to change the brakes, replace a headlight, and change the catalytic converter. But the mechanics have said it is in good shape and will run for a while still. For a small SUV it gets really pretty good gas mileage, averaging at least 20 mpg in city and up to 25 mpg on the highway. Which is great for an older car. It is reliable and comfortable. We've made several 12 hour trips in the car and were able to take a lot with us because of the great trunk space. We work at a camp and that space has also proven very useful. It is also a good vehicle to take camping, with a small card table in the back that you can pull out of the trunk and use. It drives nicely and feels good and sturdy. Especially around other large vehicles on the highway. All in all it's a great car and I am glad we bought it.
