2006 Honda CR-V SE Sport 2.0 from UK and Ireland
Another brilliant car from Honda
Drivers door wouldn't close easily.
Car pulled left slightly.
All sorted without fuss under warranty and a free laser wheel alignment to boot.
The interior is a little bland, but all the switchgear is easy to use and the climate controlled air/con a dream.
The car although an auto is rapid enough, but if you drive it like an S2000 expect it to drink the gas.
I get between 27 mpg around town to 32 mpg on a run driving steadily.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

It's not designed to be driven like an S2000!!!
I have a 2004 example of the same car and haven't had one problem in 3 years - I am sure it won't give you an problems.
Come May I will be getting my hands on a all new 2007 CR-v
ES auto - can hardly wait.

You may want to re-check your mileage figures old chap. You opine that you've achieved 27/32 mpg. Is it mpg or kpg (kilometers per gallon). Just wondering because your figures sound a bit optimistic. I own a 2006 CR-V with the 2.4 litre 4 cyl. I drive quite conservatively and couldn't get your mileage driving down hill with a tailwind. What's your secret? Are you having your kids get out and push to get you going? Inquiring minds what to know!!
My CR-V is broken-in with over 7k on the odometer. I consistently see 20 mpg city/28 highway. That's it, nothing to get excited about.

The review is based on UK spec vehicle not a US Spec.
The UK does not get the 2.4l engine instead we have the
2.0l petrol or 2.2 diesel.
I get approx 30 - 32 MPG from my 2.0 auto.

Also keep in mind the difference between Imperial gallons and U.S. gallons. It always appears as though you get more miles per gallon when quoting Imperial gallons, because Imperial gallons are a little larger.

I have a 2 year old SE sport and get identical MPG to that of the reviewer 27 MPG around town (London suburbs - so quite stop/start) and around 32MPG on motorway or fast A roads. Best I've ever achieved is approx 35mpg, but it was really boring, and involved very slow progress!
I find my CRV is a great practical workhorse, and has proven totally reliable.
