Steering wheel was seriously worn at 50000 miles.
A/C compressor went out at 75000.
The car would sometimes not start for several minutes. Honda mechanics could find no reason for this, and it's continued to happen every couple of weeks since I bought the car new.
The paint on the radio buttons faded.
I feel more at ease to know that I am not the only one with serious problems with my CR-V. I bought a Honda because I thought they were ultra-reliable.
A few days after I bought it, it wouldn't start. The dealer couldn't find anything wrong with it. It started up fine later. It does this every few months, and I've had this car almost three years. Can you imagine having to guess whether or not your car will start every time you get in it. I wanted to return it after a month, but couldn't.
The interior noise is horrible at highway speeds. The car also needs a bigger gas tank, because though it is pretty good on gas, it is hard to go a day or two without needing a fill up.
Three days after the extended 75000 mile warranty ended, the A/C compressor went out. Honda quoted me $1900 to fix it. I traded it in the next day for a Mercedes.
