Not bad but disappointing
Both rear wheel bearings failed.
Even when new there where rattles all over the interior. This was probably due to the engine vibrating very hard when the car is stopped.
The dealer did say the vibration was normal and showed me on some other models. I can't believe there is a car sold that vibrates that much when new. Build quality was OK. I really didn't like driving it because rattles really bother me.
After I found out the the A/C systems in this generation CR-V were going out just out of warranty and it was costing $1500-4000 to fix and it happens on a regular basis, I got rid of it before I became the lucky one. What happens is the compressor is in a place where it doesn't get adequate ventilation and it overheats. The internals disintegrate and sent metal shards down the system. Therefore the entire a/c system has to be replaced.
I bought this car because of Honda's "legendary" reliability because I drive 40k miles a year. I was not impressed. This isn't a bad vehicle but there are so many better choices out there.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
