Reliable and roomy compact SUV by kz59 on 01/17/2011. Trim: 2006 Honda CR-V EX 2WD AT, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Very roomy interior, good gas mileage, good handling, well planned interior storage.
Cons: Somewhat noisy ride, cheap carpeting, cheap upholstery.
Overall review: I drove a 2000 CR-V for 10 years and loved it, so I upgraded to a 2006 (bought gently used, since I didn't like the 2007+ look). Some noticeable improvements over the older model, such as: -- trunk door opens in one piece (rather than opening glass first, then door) - huge bonus; -- noticeably more power, so handles uphill with ease; -- less engine noise; -- airbags just about everywhere; -- split back seat; -- improved rear-center seatbelt; -- trunk is roomier; -- cupholder in front dashboard is better designed; -- brake lever on front dashboard, so more floor space. Now the quibbles: -- miss the storage drawer under passenger seat; -- the clock is now part of the stereo, so harder to see; -- carpeting and upholstery in the old model were of better quality; -- cupholders in the back are in a pullout center console (with 3 people in back, where are they supposed to put their drinks?) Complaints are very minor. Overall, a great little SUV.
