Good for a small family, but a few changes that could be made.

Our Honda CR-V has been a great car even with a growing family, however, it is starting to get smaller by the minute. The car runs very well and we have not had many problems with it. A few things we would change: air vents that are in the rear passenger seats- it takes awhile to the back of the car to get air, when it is really hot or cold out it takes awhile for the car to heat up/cool down, and it would be nice for the height of the car to be a little taller. Overall, a good car for a small family and good for traveling.

Love my Honda CR-V; will definitely purchase another Honda in the future!

My Honda CR-V has been the be best vehicle ever owned. It's comfortable to drive and ride in. The gas mileage is great for a SUV, oil changes are 5,000 or more. The tires hatched over 63,000 miles, changed because I was going on vacation, still were decent. I've had no engine issues, great brakes, etc. I do take extra key good card if my vehicle and regular servicing which I am sure is a plus, however, my sister has the same car, no issues and she much harder on the engine's vehicle and has over 100,000 miles!!

I love the mileage and it is easy to navigate as it is quilt and light.

My Honda CR-V is an exceptionally good car for my busy mom driving lifestyle. It gets great mileage which is very important to me and it has all the convenience issues I wanted. The USB port, sunroof and rear backup camera all came standard on my Honda crv. The other feature I really like about the CR-V is that the trunk space is very generous for the size car it is. I also like the height of the car, it is easy for people of all ages to get in an out of easily which is very important to me.
