A reliable 4x4 with a bland feel
I wouldn't choose another CR-V because of the following reasons-
It has a bland feel and the interior is black and drab.
Uninspiring to drive with lifeless steering though decent body control.
Very thirsty on fuel. At petrol price 90p per litre, it costs £52 to fill up and only does about 300 miles. Performance is adequate.
The gearbox is not very easy to use- it can takes ages to change gear and adjusting the gear stick can be difficult.
Well specced, but pricey.
It is though reliable and fairly comfy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
