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.

Comfort and reliability are hallmarks of this vehicle.

2006 Honda CR-V EX

The CR-V is a very comfortable ride. The seats are roomy and comfy, and there is ample room. There is lots of legroom in the back seat, too, with comfortable seats as well. The cargo area is large. I recommend getting the cargo cover, which totally obscures the view of what is in the cargo area. The reliability of this car is one of its best features. I have almost 176,000 miles and it and have had very few repair needs -- mostly just normal maintenance costs. We had a 2002 CR-V and had no question about getting another CR-V when the time came to do that. It is the best vehicle we have ever owned!

Very reliable car, has lasted over 10 years and shows few signs of wear.

2006 Honda CR-V EX

Very trusty car, very minimalistic interior, has problems with the tire monitoring system and had to replace the headlight covers. Very easy and comfortable to drive and would definitely recommend Honda to a friend. The car gets good gas mileage, usually around 20 miles per gallon and is small enough I can easily maneuver it. The radio does not really work, I get minimal channels and they have a lot of static. Not the best looking car since it is the most basic model.

Vehicle will treat you right, provided you are consistent with maintenance.

2006 Honda CR-V EX

Vehicle has been incredibly reliable since I started driving - never broken down, always handles smoothly as long as oil is changed consistently. Acceleration is a bit slower compared to modern vehicles, however I find modern acceleration to be too touch and go for my taste. Seats are adequately comfortable.

- Harold L

The BEST car I've ever owned!

2006 Honda CR-V EX

This is my favorite car of all time. The size, dependability, ease of maneuvering, durability (still like new, after 112,000 miles), value, and comfort are all great! Although I would enjoy the technological improvement provided in the new cars, I am still very happy driving this 13 year old car!


Good Review of 2006 Honda CR-V

2006 Honda CR-V EX

It is a reliable and sturdy vehicle. The size is big enough to be able to move larger items but small enough to still be comfortable driving. One great bonus is the full size spare tire as this is not a common thing to find. There is also a small table in storage which is a nice added feature.

- Megan B

Honda CR-V why I would purchase again.

2006 Honda CR-V EX

Very few problems. Minor maintenance ie. Tires battery brakes pads rotors good on gas mileage no rust issues doors never squeak. Plenty of room to sleep in if needed. Great highway driving. . Plenty of room to eat your meal while on the move. Storage space is great.

- Thomas Y

My car runs great. I will always buy Honda.

2006 Honda CR-V EX

I love my car. I bought it brand new with 3 miles on it. I now have over 190k miles. I think about trading it in, but I do not want to let it go. My car has been very reliable. I may just pass it on to my son. I expect it to last at least 5 more years.

- Annette R

Reliable and have for a long time.

2006 Honda CR-V EX

The car is really reliable and as long as you do oil changes and regular check ups there is no problem. Good for all my needs. Rides ok not like luxury cars but good for me. Will always by a Honda. First car that I have for so long and driving great.

- Cynthia F
