About Honda CR-V

Fresh from its complete overhaul last year, the 2018 Honda CR-V compact-crossover SUV continues to offer the size, features, fuel economy and excellent reliability buyers have come to expect from Honda. In a market where small SUVs are now crushing sales of small and midsize sedans, the CR-V offers 5-passenger seating, a roomy and versatile cargo bay plus more ground clearance than the average car with the option of all-wheel drive. While not as off-road-ready as a Jeep Cherokee or Subaru Forester, the CR-V nevertheless can be somewhat adventurous. It has more interior room than a Toyota RAV4, more power than the Nissan Rogue and better resale value than a Ford Escape.

Pros: "Looks sharp, wife loves the car"

Cons: "No back-up sensors"

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

"Sold an 09 Traverse and purchased the touring edition. Went with the Canadian model for the panoramic moonroof, heated steering wheel and heated rear seats. This has been an excellent vehicle thus far with very good gas mileage between 45 and 65 mph, getting upwards of 33 mpg. Around 26 mpg when cruising over 75 mpg. Front and rear seats are very comfortable. Children prefer the back seats over the Traverse any day! Vehicle looks sharp. Having owned one other Honda w/very few issues I suspect the same from this unit. Thinking about having the back-up sensors installed as we liked those on our Traverse."

Pros: "value to price was excellent"

Cons: "taking away the passenger side mirror camera"

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

"Great vehicle, driven two long road trips and averaged 32.2 mpg. With in town driving currently at 31.4 mpg. Would have rated it a 10 on driving dynamics but Honda got rid of the blind spot camera contained in the passenger side rear view mirror; my wife and I both loved that feature instead of the warning light. Please put it back Honda. Also the cars dash is currently at maximum peak capacity for buttons to push and features. I watched all the videos when I purchased the car and sometimes still have to access the book for a feature----starting to border on confusing for a senior citizen so be careful Honda."

Pros: "Mailage, Size and style"

Cons: "Gas tank size, seat comfort and info center hassle"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 6

"I am a road warrior so I am driving this CRV about 3500 miles per month. Its appearance generates compliments. The on-board tech is generous. Blind spot monitors, back up warnings, cameras, nav ... everything makes driving so much safer. The CRV has increased size and although powered by a 1.5 turbo, has good zip. Fun to drive from that aspect. Negatives: Been back to dealer for quite a few fixes. Bad wiper motors 2x, blind spot sensor and leaking rear tail light lens. The info center and cockpit are all electronic and Honda says it has only a 90 warranty. The info center was designed with some hassles. To turn on and off AC, or redirect your vent, you must hit a climate button, wait for the screen and then operate it thru the screen. Its a hassle. Picking AM/FM or whatever source for audio requires you touch a tiny source button on the screen. You have to take your eyes off the road to find and push it. The gas tank is small. You are alerted to refill after consuming about 11 gals. You get great gas mileage, I average 31.5 mpg overall, but I see more stations than I would like to. For me, the drivers seat is uncomfortable after a few hours in it. The adjustable lumbar is cheesy, and the seat bottom feels thin, as if you can feel springs under your bum after a while. Never felt that in my previous German cars. I like it...dont love it. But it seems like a value for the money."
