The Honda CR-V is a great compact SUV in the city.

2008 Honda CR-V EX-L

The car is smoothing and easy to drive. While the driver seat is the only one electrically adjustable, both front seats can be heated, which is wonderful in the cold weather months. The back seat is also adjustable, the seat can move forward and back and the top portion can be slightly reclined. The truck is fairly spacious and does have a privacy guard. The back does have space for three, but it really can only fit two comfortably. The mileage is not the best, city miles are fairly low while freeway is slightly better, it seems to average 20 miles/gallon. Some problems with the axels appeared when the car turned 10 years old. Other than that it has been working well and in good condition.

Practical adventure bound!

2008 Honda CR-V EX-L

Good gas mileage, in city and road miles. Averages 24 miles to the gallon. Love the child safety belts for car seat to be in middle of back seat. Back cargo space fits groceries, sports equipment, camping equipment and 2 mid size dogs. Easy to navigate into small parking areas and spots. Really like the rack capabilities on top, I mounted a kayak rack and roof basket for adventures. Only thing missing from previous Honda car years, the capability to sleep in car! Front seats don't lie back completely and/or back seat & cargo area aren't long enough to sleep in.

It's big and can carry all you need it to downside is the gas

2008 Honda CR-V EX-L

Gas mileage is horrible, I've had some engine problems. Besides that I love how big it is and the one I have has a sunroof. The car is such a great size, it really is a family car. Upkeep is really important but it really is a good car. It's old so some of the paint fading in some areas is to be expected but it's aged well besides that.

Most reliable car that can get you from point a to point b comfortably

2008 Honda CR-V EX-L

This is the most reliable car I have ever purchased. I have put very little money if ever into the car except for usual maintenance. The interior and exterior literally still looks new. I would highly recommend this car. It's my second CR-V that I have purchased and will probably end up purchasing another one.

Honda CR-V, they last, but there are some flaws

2008 Honda CR-V EX-L

Well it's a Honda do it last, but I'm starting to have problems with my tensioner belt I have had to replace it 2 in the last 2 years. And the tensioner pulley 1 time as well. Besides that well the armrests are too low for tall people, and I don't like that all the windows are not auto up and down.

- Jeff F

Good reliable safe vehicle

2008 Honda CR-V EX-L

I absolutely love the gas mileage I get both in town and on the highway. The sunroof is an added bonus for me. Having a child that is very tall it's sometimes hard to find a good vehicle with space and comfort but this car does it for us. It offers a smooth ride and is excellent is bad weather

- Tiff D

A very reliable and affordable vehicle.

2008 Honda CR-V EX-L

The CR-V is very reliable. It has a great stop to go speed. There are bucket seats in the front that are heated. A bench seat in the back that folds down for more room. You can have a full size spare tire instead of the small donut ones. There is a good amount of room in the rear for storage.

- Dawn K

Great Crossover built by Honda

2008 Honda CR-V EX-L

It just keeps running. I have had very little issues with the car. Gets okay gas mileage and is spacious. Already has over 140,000 miles on it. Haven't had to stick much money in the car since I bought it. I would buy another CR-V in the future. This car helped me decide to buy another Honda.

- Mitchell S

My car does really well on gas for a small SUV.

2008 Honda CR-V EX-L

I haven't had too many issues besides regular maintenance with my car. From time to time I need to bleed the breaks, especially in the winter, but other than that, everything has been fine. I bought it at 94,000 miles, and I'm creeping up to 200,000 miles and it's still running brand new.

- Denise J

Love my CR-V, its comfort and quality.

2008 Honda CR-V EX-L

Looks good, strong drive, and comfortable. I would buy it again if I could. Toyota and Nissan are put here too. But the CR-V is definitely my favorite. I hear the new technology is fantastic on the CR-V. I also like the Pilot, with its roominess and overall quality.

- Bob A

Honda CR-V 2008 ex-l AWD lots of spunk.

2008 Honda CR-V EX-L

I love my 2008 Honda cr v ex-l, not only does it get great mileage but it is comfortable and nimble. It is got plenty of legroom in the back seat for passengers to ride comfortably. It has room in the way back for pretty much anything you need to haul around.
