2014 Honda CR-V for driving around town.
This review is for a 2014 Honda CR-V used for in-town daily driving. The car is comfortable, fuel efficient, and easy to drive. It has leather seats with front seat heaters, a roof rack, and a trim package. Routine maintenance is performed on a regular basis. There have been no major mechanical issues over a four year period, although the battery had to be replaced once. It does not have a navigation package. However, it does have Bluetooth connectivity, a built-in USB connection, and a separate Audio input jack. The Bluetooth connectivity feature enables the ability to use a cellular phone for navigation, phone calls, and receiving text messages. The USB connection is used primarily for charging devices such as cellular phones and tablets. It also keeps devices charged while in use, which provides the ability to use a phone's navigation system. It has a separate auxiliary Audio input port for playing Audio files from external devices using a male-to-male 3. 5 mm Audio cable. This is a nice feature for playing music playlists or Audio books from an external device. The car is used for short city driving trips most of the time. It has been used for one to three hundred mile trips on occasion with good performance and gas mileage. The econo mode helps with better gas mileage with a small decrease in power performance. Overall I have been very happy with this car. There have been only two unsatisfactory issues: 1. A defective battery and. 2. Difficulty getting a Bluetooth device to play through the car speakers.
