Pros: "handling, cargo space, VALUE, VALUE,VALUE"

Cons: "road noise is major and only drawback in my eyes"

"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."

"The best car/small suv I've ever owned. Extremely reliable. Handles excellent in all weather. Could use one more seat notch on long trips as I have extra long legs. Cargo space awesome. Took me through many moves. Still has good gas mileage at mid 20's after 233000 miles with original transmission, engine, etc. This car has never been garaged and has very little rust on undercarriage and only tiny dots of rust on the roof. I would recommend the CR-V to anyone. Hoping to make it to 300,000 miles!!!!"

"I love this vehicle I have owned fords chevys buick and a toyota the honda has been by far the best ever handles great in snow comfortable for me to drive in town or on road trip I could see it not being ideal for a taller or large person however. just regular oil and the usual stuff it has never let me down with any high repair bills and still to my mind looks good plus I think it has held it's value very well"
