"Owned 10 years, only major repair was overhauling the AC system, manufacturing defect so I had half the cost reimbursed by Honda. Other than that just basic maintenance, low cost repairs. Runs like a champ though, I just love how this kid handles but I have the manual so maybe that's why. Can get to 60 mph in about 5 seconds, no kidding, leave v8 cars in the dust after stop signs. Design may be a little bland and outdated but if youre kinda retro old school like me, may not mind that. Time for a change but will miss this lil frisky monster."

"At 63, this has been my most useful and best all around vehicle ever. Rides nice, reliability is tops, gas mileage is great (for SUV), maneuverability is excellent, interior cargo space easily holds my two 100 lb dogs and I plan to keep it (now 10 years old/138K)and try for 300K. Not a single mechanical issue and ten years going strong. All wheel drive is very handy and the body has not one drop of rust and NEVER garaged. LOW maintenance costs. A great vehicle for my needs. Road noise is the only drawback and it is definitely significant. Body style still holds its' own."
"I love my CRV having bought it with only 4 miles on the odometer. It has been incredibly reliable for 13 yrs and 182,000 miles, so far. I have never experienced car envy since buying this one. It has had a number of airbag recalls but they were taken care of in a timely manner, so no issue to speak of. I had an oxygen sensor go out once, an oil leak of the solenoid, and an air conditioner capacitor (which was mainly my fault)-you must replace the interior cabin filter! It now has a motor mount that needs replacement and some oil leaking. The reason I am letting it go though is it was hit but a hit and run driver and I think that at 13 yrs and high miles, I am passing it down to my son. I have test driven the new CRV and don't like it at all. The new models have very poor sightlines and the cargo space doesn't seem as large, although I have been told it is as large or larger."
