Reliable, comfortable, safe family car.

I love my CR-V. First off, it has floor mats which cover every inch, and all leather seats which are comfortable and easy to clean up with kids and pets. I also love all the room in there. My C-RV seems like a simple version on the inside, lots of space around our feet and in the trunk! There are a few awesome storage compartments that help with possible clutter. Not only is my C-RV comfortable for long car rides, it has automatic windows, seat heaters, ac/heat, and an awesome system for music! My car has a screen in the dash that tells me when doors are open, when I have any problem with the car like a flat tire or low on oil, it even tells me when I am hydroplaning on water! I love the 4wheel drive for taking adventures, and let me say the gas mileage is wonderful! 23 in town and 29 highway. I have had this car for a couple years now, and it is never let me or my family down!

The most important thing that others should know about the Honda CR-V is that it will only last 8-12 years, depending on how well it is maintained.

It is a nice size, and the trunk space is great. I like that it has anchors for car seats in two of the three backseat spaces. I don't like that there is no anchor behind the middle back seat, so the car seat has to go on one side or the other. The locks are broken (VERY broken) and the recall only covered the front locks, which were working fine before they were replaced, and now none of the four locks works properly. The speaker system is subpar, and at 10 years old, the car is really starting to fall apart, with several thousands of dollars worth of repairs required over the past 2 years. I like that the gas mileage is decent, though I wish there was a hybrid option. There are also a couple of blind spots that are a problem, though not as bad as some of the newer similar cars, like the Kia Sportage, or the newer CR-V even.

Honda CR-V that is light green in color and very roomy with a sunroof.

My Honda CR-V is very roomy and comfortable to drive. It has around 150,000 miles on it but still drives pretty well. I have recently had to get a new brake caliper but there haven't been many other issues besides that. It rides smoothly and there is a sun-roof along with heated seats. I have found it to be very reliable and has always gotten me to where I need to be. The headlights are a little dim because they are foggy/cloudy but I am sure there is a way to fix that. Overall, I have used this car since high school (I am now a recent college graduate) and it has served me well. I do not intend on buying another car any time soon.
