"I truly love my Honda CRV 2011 - no complaints at all, well, I dont like the new versions that came out recently with them being longer, economically convenient, but ugly ! Anyone agree ?
thanks Honda for the past five years !!"
"This is a car that makes buying the extended warranty a valid consideration. Quality issues with door switches & Cr. Cont. switches & VTEC oil press Switch. MBI on Insurance covered most. FYI CEO was fired due to Quality Issues on cars built in Japan!"
"I purchased this vehicle new and have never been as happy with a vehicle as I have with this one. This Honda gets good mileage, goes anywhere and has enough power to cruise at 80 up steep grades. It's fun to drive. It's large enough for several passengers and lots of gear in the back, yet compact enough for easy parking."
"One non-smoking female owner, this CR-V has been well cared for, always garaged. Leather, navigation, backup camera, sunroof. No accidents whatsoever, parking garage door dings completely repaired, looks like new. New Michelin tires 10,000 miles ago."
"I've had Hondas for over 25 years. This is my first CR-V. I like the features in the car, but the A/C isn't as strong and cold as my friend's Toyota A/C. I hate the cloth on the seats! It's very cheap and isn't stain resistant at all! I had a 2000 Accord for 10 years, and the cloth seats looked almost new when I traded it in. That fabric repelled spills MUCH BETTER! The stereo that comes with the LX is cheap. It doesn't sound very good. To me, for the cost, one should get a regular sized spare tire instead of a donut.
As far as dependability and reliability goes it's great! I also like how the back seats fold down. It allows you to carry some awkward sized things like small furniture, etc. Although there are aspects of the CR-V that I like, I don't know how I feel about purchasing another CR-V."
"An excellent, very dependable vehicle. Plenty of room for people and cargo. 4-wheel drive is excellent in snow and ice. Totally trouble-free. Mediocre mileage (about 22-25 overall). Styling not spectacular, interior very functional but plain. Comfortable for driver and passengers."
Pros: "great price, relaible and comfortable to drive"
Cons: "could use a little more horsepower but its not bad"

"Great bang for the buck! It is the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned. It handles well in bad weather (snow, rain, etc.) I've never had any mechanical issues. Even after 83000 miles the alignment is still perfect and the interior holds up very well against 2 very active boys. It isn't the fastest vehicle in the world but it holds its own. We've had it since it was new and it still drives and looks pretty new. Very durable vehicle!!"
"It's an OK vehicle but it's noisy. You hear the road and it rides rough. The gas mileage is much less than advertised. I'm not a speed racer, drive rather conservatively. Lucky to get 24 mpg highway. It gets me where I'm going but I'm very disappointed in it. I've only had it 3 months and thinking about trading it in :-("
"I gave the 8/10 for comfort because we would take 10 or so trips a year that were in excess of 8 hour drives. The seats in the base model are a little hard for that length of trip. That being said this vehicle works great in the snow and ice. The only repairs that we have needed are breaks and tires. Because of the short wheel base and 4wd we have to replace the tires every 40k miles (were on the 3rd set now)"
Pros: "MPG, interior room, comfortable on long trips"

"Has been a fantastic vehicle, no problems! Sporty, tight driving, great interior, lots of room for grown adults & packing stuff in for dorm moving! Great mileage. Initially bought when taking care of elderly parent, very nice sturdy door handles to get in & out of car, plenty of room in rear hatch to lift wh/ch in & out of &/or put walker in legroom area of rear seats. Kept because it was just so easy to drive & got better mileage than smaller vehicles."
"excellent reliable vehicle-rides smoothly and in spite of small engine handles getting onto highways very well- have owned Hondas most of my life but also Toyota Camry, Volvo sedans, Lexus 350 and Chrysler vans - have to say this truck has been a real treat"
"I do 80 miles day, all highway. Has been dependable since day one. Comfortable ride, plenty of power, and loads of space. A few problems I have had. 1st, is the service from Honda Corp. Absolutely Horrible. Soon after purchase, there was a recall on the timing. I went from 33 to 34 mpg, down to 27. After numerous calls to Honda, I was basically told, "too bad" . I can honestly say Ive never been treated so bad from a company. That alone will make me think more than once about buying another Honda. Next, the interior is pretty cheaply made. I am small and lightweight, but the edges of my seat are cracked and splitting. It has always been garage kept, so it does not sit in the sun or heat. Also, the rear seat latch detached so I can't fold the seat up, after doing so maybe 10 times over the 3 years since new."
