Summary:

Great AWD Vehicle For Anybody!

Faults:

Nothing Yet, Car is Great!

General Comments:

I cannot find anything wrong with this vehicle other than no dealer that had them would budge on their sticker prices. I had to go out of state to get my gem to a Honda dealer that did want to sell one at my price. Drove it home for $15,000 on the road and out the door. They also cut me a 6% sales tax check so I could put it legally on the road in my state (KY). The vehicle is in flawless shape and I love ever part of it. Even the 30mpg on the Highway!

I just purchased a 1999 CR-V EX for $15K out the door, and I am loving it as well. It's a great car.

Summary:

Great comfortable deal that is better than the new model

Faults:

The front air grille popped out of the brackets when I went over a fairly rough bump.

General Comments:

The car handles like a dream.

The interior is very robust. I have two dogs (Doberman and a Bassett) and one small child and it is still in good condition.

Could do with a little less of a plastic feel to it.

Summary:

Perfect people-carrier alternative

Faults:

Nothing!

Although we have only had it for a year (15000 miles), it hasn't yet missed a beat, which is a relief because Honda service is not cheap.

Interior has taken some serious abuse from child seats and children, but appears to be bullet proof.

General Comments:

Comfortable and roomy, but I find it a little under-powered and noisy.

It would have been nice to have a large V6 or even a turbo-diesel to select from.

This has been the perfect family car, and the modest boot can swallow a huge amount of prams and toys when required, which is most of the time!

Summary:

Perfect for the wife and kids

Faults:

Absolutely nothing - it's a Honda.

General Comments:

Brilliant family transport. Great driving position, great performance for it's class and loads of space. Built solidly and well equipped. Good economy (30 ish) for size. Totally reliable. Beats Freelander in all departments. Dealers a cut above other mainstream marques - they lent me an NSX as a courtesy car while the CR-V was in for a service!
