I love this car! It has character. 242,000 miles and nothing wrong with it. Easy to drive with great visibility for younger new driver. Gas mileage in 24 MPG range, and it looks good. Reliability is a given, its really a fancy SUV CIVIC. Performance is good and practical with enough power to smoothly cruse and accelerate when needed. I even love the cool picnic table in the back! I want another one of these cars!

My Trusty CR-V

I've had my '99 CR-V for 6 years now and it hasn't let me down. Originally bought with 60,000 miles on it, and have since put an additional 70,000. I drive it pretty hard with a lot of road trips and speeding and it has been so dependable. I've only had one problem - I had to replace the radiator late last year. Normal tire change and oil change do well for the reliability. Pros: great gas mileage, tons of room for groceries and kid cargo, super safe (I've been in a head-on collision, and was not hurt, thanks to airbag), comfortable ride, good handling with normal Honda pep. Cons: at this point the styling is pretty outdated, but I think back in '99 it was decent. That's really the only con I have.

Best small SUV there is

I have driven this stock CRV on many off-roads situations and it takes a very good punishing. It does not crawl on rocks or boulders but this vehicle is nimble and takes you on just about every off road situation the average enthusiast would want to go on. On road this car is great. The built-in picnic table and ice cooler are the best innovations for real world fun. And since this car is 100% made in Japan it will last at least 300k before you encounter serious problems.

Reliable and Dependable Vehicle

My wife's father gave us his used 1999 Honda CRV LX with 280,000 miles. I figured with that mileage, it'd definitely have some major maintenance work needed. The ENTIRE service history was accounted for and the car's phenomenal performance reflected this. It runs better than any of my previous cars (all Mitsubishi) combined. Great gas mileage for an SUV. I do wish it had a little more oomph to it but being that the car is in such great condition for the year and mileage, I don't care. I accidentally found the table that comes in these things! That was the cherry on top. The car now has 328,000 miles and still runs like a champ. Granted, I've been meticulous about maintenance.

Very reliable and practical vehicle! The four-wheel drive has good power and traction in snow and rain. Spacious interior with the 20/40 fold down capability. Visibility is quite adequate. Just keep up the maintenance at it's proper intervals and it's good to go. Great on the highway -- usually up to 330mi on one tank of gas! Regarding maintenance; avoid using anything besides Genuine Honda parts. Retains it's value after 8 years!

Unbelievably reliable

We've owned this car since new and have driven it nearly 120K with only one serious problem (head replaced) but Honda took care of that at no cost. The car is a 5 speed manual and consistently gets 25-27 mpg on regular. The only negative is engine noise at speeds over 55. It is just undamped engine noise. Better insulation or active noise cancellation would have made the car a lot more enjoyable. The automatic version is likely quieter as the engine rev's would be lower.

Reliable and stretching leg room for tall drivers

Runs much better at 7,000 ft with a high-flow air filter. With a red line close to 6000 rpm, the little engine really enjoys the extra air. Seats are a little uncomfy and a tad too hard but you get used to it. The cockpit is very nice with everything well laid out. This little car can scoot and still get low 20's for fuel mileage. It's easy on tires and takes on snow without stopping. Back seats are very roomy and recline a few inches as well. Hatch access is easy. For the diy's, the oil filter is a little tricky to get to.

My grandson was given a 1999 Honda CR-V in 2011 by his aunt who had been driving it since 1999 with over 185,000 miles on it at that time, We found it to be very dependable needing only routine maintenance. In October of 2014 it had 197,000 miles on it and was still running great. He was in an accident which took him over an embankment and flipped it over 3 times landing it upright. He walked away from what could have been a disaster with only bumps and bruises due to the workmanship of this vehicle. Although when looking at the outside you'd wonder how he survived, but checking out the inside it looked as if it never happened. We will be looking for another vehicle soon an do plan to check out another Honda. Thank you and continue to make safe vehicles for us all
