Pros: "Reliable and roomy"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Have owned this car for 9 years. Have never had to have anything except basic maintenance i.e., oil changes, tires, radiator flush, etc. done. Very reliable car, great gas mileage. Large cargo area; with back seat or seats down will hold a lot of stuff. No complaints. I am looking to purchase a new Honda in the future, either another CRV or a Fit."

Pros: "great off-road travel and comfort"

Cons: "slow acceleration"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"A little slow at getting up to speed on the highway, but on the off-road it is great going over the rocks and deep ruts with the short wheelbase and high ground clearance. We've even had to climb very steep loose gravel hills and it went fine without sliding back. I like it better than other vehicles for our prospecting adventures."

Pros: "Reliability, safety, dog friendly!"

Cons: "Somewhat gutless, lower mileage as it has aged"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Best car I have ever owned. Not the most powerful SUV, but I can count on it every time. Bought it 15 years ago with 54,000 miles and it's now at 190,000. I keep up with oil changes, brakes and wipers. I hate to give her up but I know sometime in the next year or so I will. I wish I could keep her forever!"

Cons: "Noisy interior, no sunroof for this year/model!"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I've driven this car faithfully for 14 years, it was so reliable. The transmission just went out on it (2nd one) so, my mechanic advised me it's time for a new car. Even when it broke down it did so in a convenient way; never left me high and dry trying to get somewhere like work or an important appt. I got the car for camping, hauling and driving in snow. Once, while in Yosemite for Thanksgiving, my CRV was allowed to traverse the snowy, icy roads out of the park without snow tires by the authorities, and we made it home safe and sound. My CRV served like a workhorse, ever faithful and dependable. I still see 2000/2001s on the road, this car is an incredible value and provided so much for as long as I've owned it."
