LOVE MY CR-V!!! by An MSN Autos Consumer on 07/09/2011. Trim: 2002 Honda CR-V 4WD EX, Owned 9 years.
Pros: My CR-V has been an outstanding vehicle. I have not had any major issues in 100,000+ miles of driving. I don't understand the negative reviews I see on here at all. I have friends that also own the same year CR-V's and they too have had fantastic reliability as well. This vehicle has all the attributes of a larger SUV without the gas guzzling excess. I average 24 mpg faithfully and I feel that is fantastic mileage for a 4wd SUV. It is roomy, very comfortable, well made, handles beautifully, great on gas and simply a joy to drive. Not to mention unbelievable in the snow of New England!!
Cons: It is definitely not the quietest vehicle on the road. I wish there wasn't so much road noise from the back of the vehicle. A friend of mine switched to Michelin tires on his 2002 CR-V and it helped quiet his some, so I tried the same and it did make a difference somewhat. I also do not like how easily the black interior trim scratches up. Aside from these few flaws I cannot think of anything else to complain about!!
Overall review: My CR-V is one of the best vehicles I have ever owned. I have not had any trouble with my CR-V and would buy another without hesitation. It combines all the best attributes of an SUV with the comfort and efficiency of a car. I often wonder why people drive the big gas guzzling SUV's? It really makes no sense to me!
