Satisfying Economy SUV for Reasonable Price

2009 Honda CR-V LX

I find My CR-V To be very reliable for me. It is roomy in the front and passenger seats. There is a great deal of Storage space in bag and that has helped me to move furniture and large items. The bench seat folds down at an angle, so it is not as much room as if the seat folded down completely, but it is still plenty for most of my needs. I find the ride to be a little bumpy in the passenger seat, but I do not notice much when I am driving. I get it about 25 miles to the gallon and I drive around 250 miles on city streets and highways each week, so it outperforms many other SUV options in gas usage. I like being elevated a little bit higher than my previous Honda accord, but not so high that drive-through windows and toll booths or uncomfortable to use. Overall I am well satisfied.

- Rachel H

I love the size of the vehicle. Great for all drivers, new and old.

2009 Honda CR-V LX

In regards to the comfort, I love how the vehicle handles. It is smooth to drive and ride in. It is easy to get in and out of, you are not up to high or down too low. Regarding performance, it handles great in the snow. I used to have a Honda odyssey and the CR-V is hands down easier to handle in the snow. Gas mileage is good. In regards to features, they are easy to understand and use. I love the space. I can fit my bike and my kayak in this vehicle. I like that it calculates and displays the average gas mileage and also how many miles you have left to go before empty. Regarding, reliability, this vehicle is like other Honda's very reliable. Just routine maintenance. I wish this vehicle was made with a trailer hitch as a standard option. That is my only recommendation.

2009 Honda CR-V: dependable, long-lasting vehicle despite numerous repairs.

2009 Honda CR-V LX

I bought my Honda CR-V approximately 2 1/2 years ago. It was a high mileage vehicle at that time. (approximately 190,000 miles). Several weeks after purchase, my air conditioning went out. Within the first year of ownership, we had to fix the windshield wiper motor, 2 internal problems of which I do not remember, totaling about $1,000,00, replaced the tires, put in a new battery and just recently, the starter went out and had to be replaced. We have had more problems than we anticipated even though it is a high mileage vehicle, (currently 213,000 miles) mainly because of the high reviews that we have read on the CR-V,s. Having said that, my husband and I do like the vehicle and we would probably consider buying another one in the future.

- Kathy G

Reliable and trustworthy vehicle, is my Honda CR-V.

2009 Honda CR-V LX

I have never had any real problems with my CR-V. It is extremely important to me to know my car is safe for all who travel in it. I have taken several long trips in it and everyone was extremely comfortable. I am really impressed with the performance it provides. It is very reliable and has never left me stranded. The maintenance and upkeep are really easy to take care of. I have had my CR-V for nine years and with regular oil changes and tune ups I have not had to worry about any problems. I would definitely recommend a Honda CR-V to anyone. Oh yeah, I like my luggage rack on the top too. Thank you Honda.

Reliable CR-V for this single owner

2009 Honda CR-V LX

The Honda CR-V is the perfect size- the space and comfort of an SUV but with dimensions that allow me to parallel park and navigate alleys in a city. With almost 165,000 miles, my CR-V has been very reliable with only minor repairs needed. I've been the only owner and it's extremely reliable. It's an 09 so the features are outdated now (no Bluetooth function) but it has the basics and AV and USB ports which basically does the same thing. Aesthetically, the leather began to peel on the arm rests within a few years, which I was told can't be fixed. Otherwise, no major complaints!

- Marie P

Love my 2009 Honda CR-V! Comfortable, dependable, roomy, fun to drive.

2009 Honda CR-V LX

My car is comfortable and roomy and fun to drive. As of this time, I have not had any problems with it as far as the engine. The 'check fuel cap' indicator keeps coming on intermittently, but I've had it checked and everything is fine. It has power windows and locks. There is plenty of room for passengers and also lots of cargo space in the rear as well. It also has indicators that inform me of how well my car is performing regarding fuel mileage. I love my Honda CR-V, and would definitely recommend this car to others.

- Jennifer M

Honda CR-V I love That it has fell down Seats in the back

2009 Honda CR-V LX

I have 149,000 miles. I have had it for 10 years and it very mate nets free maintenance free. Also I get great mileage per tank a gas. I live in a big city and I'm on the highway or freeway every day and I average around 25 mph. I like how it performs and rain snow ice and fog. I would never buy anything else but a Honda CR-V. It is very comfortable on long trips over 100 miles. The only drawback on the Honda CR-V is the AC. It is known that Honda CR-V Don't have great AC.

- Pam D

My CR-V is great and comfortable for driving and the best for taking on trips.

2009 Honda CR-V LX

Great and comfortable for driving. A lot of room for passengers and packing for trips. I feel very safe in it. The seat material stains very easy which is something I do not like. The air conditioner does not cool as well as I would like. Very easy to drive. The stereo is great. Perfect size for me and passengers. Very easy to find places for car repairs. I really do not have many repairs except from wear and tear.

- Laurie B

Awesome car. No problems whatsoever

2009 Honda CR-V LX

My vehicle has no problems at all. I love how I can raise the seat so I can actually see the road in front of me. I love how the emergency brake is in the middle of the driver's seat and passenger's seat so I can reach it better. I love the shiny red paint on the outside. The locks work perfectly and so do the windows. The seats are comfortable and feel like carpet. I just love my car in general.

- Delaney B

Roomy and reliable SUV made by Honda

2009 Honda CR-V LX

I love my Honda CR-V! It's 10 years old but never has given me problems. It gets around 24 miles a gallon which could be better but for a SUV it's not to bad. One bad thing about the Honda CR-V is the starter location. My starter recently went out and it's on the bottom of the motor which caused it to be very expensive to replace. All in all it's a great car and I would definitely recommend.

- Corey S

Skidded off road and didn't flip.

2009 Honda CR-V LX

2009 Honda CR-V is dependable. Fits large people comfortable. Lots of legroom for driver and people seated in back. Skidded off road and did not flip. Only damage was the battery died. Sunroof is nice feature and plenty of cargo space to hold furniture or my dog. Only disappointment is that the leather interior is ripping and pulling away from arm handles on door and captain seats in front.

- Gabriela P

My CR-V is perfect for me!

2009 Honda CR-V LX

I have had no problems with my Honda CR-V--I get regular routine checks and maintenance twice a year, all routine, nothing problematic. It is reliable, and easy to handle in snow and ice. It is comfortable and is a nice size for my needs. It handles well, My CR-V is comfortable, though I wish my model had a back up camera--a feature I will insist upon with my next purchase.

- Nita C

CR-V is the perfect ride for families.

2009 Honda CR-V LX

I haven't had any issues with vehicle. I have had to perform regular maintenance. The most I have had to change or fix on it were the tires, but we travel a lot by vehicle. My vehicle has gone over 24,000 since I purchased it in 2015. It is a comfortable car with plenty of room. The back of the vehicle has ample room for all of the luggage that we carry for each trip.

- Rebecca H

Review of my trusty, old 2009 Honda CR-V

2009 Honda CR-V LX

My car drives very smoothly and I always feel safe in my car. A big portion of my decision in buying this car were the safety ratings, and this car has lived up to those! It gets an alright mileage as well. It's pretty comfortable to sit in, but I do wish it had Bluetooth or GPS included. It's an older car though, and for being 10 years old it's held up pretty well.

- Julia R

The CR-V: Reliable and Fun!

2009 Honda CR-V LX

The CR-V, along with the two Accords I've also owned, have been incredibly reliable. The most significant repair work I've ever had to do is replace the starter, which I just completed for my 10-year old CR-V. It gets great gas mileage, the fold down capability of the seats gives you tons of room, and it drives really smoothly. I would absolutely buy another one!

- Allison R

10 year old, spacious, comfortable, realizable Honda CR-V

2009 Honda CR-V LX

I have had my car for 10 years and have had no major problems. I've maintained maintenance during this time and including staying on top of the oil change. It is a reliable car and has made the trip from PHL to RI over 80 times during this time. It's spacious for those sitting front and back and I have never found that I didn't have space for large items.

- Colleen W

It's white with leather seats and I highly recommend the dual climate control.

2009 Honda CR-V LX

It has great sound, it's reliable, and gets fairly good gas mileage (about 23 mpg). Never had any major issues. I got in one wreck and my car was fine and dent free so it's pretty sturdy. Finally, I enjoy that it's easy to operate. The only downside to the car is it's blind spots, but these can easily be fixed by adding blind spot mirrors.

- Savannah H

The vehicle is a good size for me.

2009 Honda CR-V LX

I bought my car used. I really enjoy that it is All Wheel Drive. There was a problem with the wheel bearings. They were worn down and needed to be changed because the car already had 100,000 miles on it. I enjoy the trunk space in the back. I also enjoy the center because there isn't anything separating the passenger and driver's seat.

- Elizabeth S

Honda CR-V (2009) Why I would not get this car again.

2009 Honda CR-V LX

Not a terrible car it's just not for me. I prefer smaller cars. This car is big, high off the ground, and drives less smoothly than a car such as an accord. It did well with no problems for a good amount of time, but recently I've had a lot of problems with it. It's comfortable. Little to no features in the car... basic and outdated.

- Erin W

Great interior storage and space! Super roomy!

2009 Honda CR-V LX

Love my CR-V! A lot of space inside and a very functional interior. Great feature in the trunk where I can create a shelf for added storage space. Spare tire is easily stowed under the trunk. Nice radio system and AUX cord. Wish there was a center console that had storage instead of the fold-down console.

- Georgia O

Most reliable car owned. Meant for families with children

2009 Honda CR-V LX

The only problem I have had is the sensors in the tires. It performs great especially in snow with the all wheel drive. Has plenty of space and you are able to put the back seats down for more space. This has been the most reliable vehicle I have had. I recommend this SUV for families with kids.

- Anne W

CR-V good and bad and other things.

2009 Honda CR-V LX

A/c out tires wear quickly etc, no air to the backseat. It get solid gas mileage around 20 city driving. Good size to go on a trip. Lots of room to board two small children. Not big enough for 3 though. Would like a key slot in the trunk because I had to unlock it to get into the back.

- Douglas B

Smooth Driving - 2009 Honda CRV

2009 Honda CR-V LX

I have had no problems with my vehicle. It rides and performs very well. It is fairly low maintenance and the gas mileage is great for a 2009 vehicle. There is plenty of storage for me in the vehicle, including the trunk space and the compartments in the front. Overall, I love my car.

- Liz H

Perfect for adventuring, near and far!

2009 Honda CR-V LX

I love that it is great for adventuring like camping, road trips, any good little escape out of town. It sits 5 adults comfortably, with plenty of back storage for luggage and such. The audio system is nice, and I like how it is bigger than a sedan but smaller than a massive car.

- Laurel D

A car that is worth the little amount of money that I paid.

2009 Honda CR-V LX

Air conditioning broke, cruise control broke, mice, no CD player. It does not have a working CD player. The air conditioning is broken, it only blasts hot air. The cruise control is broken. The tires are worn out. It is properly inspected. There are mice living in the car.

- Alec M

Great Reliable Vehicle Overall.

2009 Honda CR-V LX

It is a reliable vehicle that has fantastic gas mileage, great smooth riding feel and long lasting performance. The seats are comfortable and there's lots of legroom. The only issue I've ever had was the sunroof. It no longer works but haven't had a diagnostic on that yet.

- Elizabeth B

Comfortable, easy to maneuver. Family SUV

2009 Honda CR-V LX

This vehicle has been running smoothly for the modest part. Only issue noticed is after 10 years A/C started to malfunctioning. Other than this the vehicle drives very smooth. Very spacious as well as comfortable. This a reliable vehicle house. I highly recommend

- Marie M

The vehicles engine and tires seem loud.

2009 Honda CR-V LX

I truly enjoy my car a lot, the only issue is the engine is very loud. However it is very safe and I like the size of the vehicle. Overall I am very happy with it and I am not sure if the tires are loud. That being said overall it is comfortable and handles well.

- Robyn S

Reliable, consistent, long lasting.

2009 Honda CR-V LX

Reliable and consistent as long as you follow the maintenance schedule. In 10 yrs I have only had 1 major repair to the power steering. Drives smooth. Good gas mileage. Great cargo space. Parts are all intact. The factory battery lasted almost 6 years.

- Gigi H

The Honda CR-V is a sporty family car

2009 Honda CR-V LX

The Honda CR-V is a very reliable car. I have owned this car for 20 years and have not had any major problems mechanically. The car is roomy and big enough for my whole family. I would highly recommend this car to any family it is also a very safe car.

- Ryan R

Great car for comfort and travel

2009 Honda CR-V LX

Great car. Great gas mileage and very comfortable. Our left front bearing is the only thing that we have had to fix and just got to 100,000 miles. This is our go to vehicle for any road trips. We will be getting an updated version as our next vehicle.

- Vanessa V

Honda America does not stand behind their product

2009 Honda CR-V LX

Just Okay. Comes with cheap Bridgestone tires unless you can upgrade with the dealer. Brakes wear out quickly. No exterior lock for trunk. Somewhat reliable. Batteries wear out quickly in hot weather. Comfortable enough. Would buy American next time.
