All good except one big thing

Reliable, cheap to own, utilitarian, Honda, durable interior, easy to maintain, it's all good *except* the A/C compressor self-destructed at about 100K miles. It disintegrated so thoroughly that the vehicle wouldn't even start; that seems like an odd engineering decision, but once the A/C belt was removed it started just fine. A Honda dealership in Orlando quoted me 3 thousand dollars to fix the A/C system. They wanted to replace everything in the system. That was 3 years ago and I'm still driving it with no A/C and doing just fine. Other than that, I've had only 2 minor problems. The dash clock failed very early on and about once a year or so it lights up for a few miles. The heater core leaks a tiny bit and the interior stinks of anti freeze for a few moments when the HVAC knob is on some settings. It's annoying and I could probably fix it with a new heater core, but I haven't looked into it.

I'll NEVER buy anything but a CRV

My wife, family & I owned many & we all sware by them. Years 2000 to 2007. Great gas mileage for a 4x4 & great size. Terrific in snow, ice & handles VERY well in bad weather skidding etc. No car is perfect but many will argue that for the money, the Honda CRV comes close. I rarely heard of any problems, if any I doubt they got proper care as they did not get such great ratings for NO reason. The CRV halls just about anything, good distance traveler, VERY reliable, pulls our larger boat. We have always bought used ones & did very well for years after. Great resale value due to their high reputation.

Dependable

I bought this car used with only 17,000 miles on it. Since then I've managed to rack up 183,000. It still runs great. It's only been in the shop once and it was covered under the warranty. Other than that it's been oil changes and one set of belt replacements. It has plenty of cargo space for our family of four. I don't understand why there is no armrest on the passenger seat in the front. That's just ridiculous. It's not the most comfortable ride in the world, but you can't beat the gas mileage. The only other thing I can say is I wish they would do something about the road noise. I don't notice it anymore, but when someone is riding with me for the first time it's always their first comment. It's loud. I've loved my little blue SUV, and I'll be sad to see it gone at the end of the month. I'm selling it to a recent college grad just starting out that just needs a dependable vehicle. I hope she gets another 200,000 miles out of it. :)

Great vehicle!

by from Western North Carolina on July 28, 2009

Got this car in 2005 with 60,000 miles on it. I now have 137,000 on it and it's going strong - have replaced the timing belt and a power streering pump and that's it.

Bought mine with 36K miles in 2004 - it now has 160,500K and is running strong. No major issues. Keep up with the standard maintenance and this car will run for a long time. The real-time AWD is useful in snowy weather. Interior is very ample and able to haul lots of stuff - I've transported a hot water heater, washing machine, gas stove and dry wall debris in it before. If you are about simplicity and reliability over thrills and glamour this Honda is most certainly for you.

We have owned this 2000 Honda CRV Special Edition since it was new. We have put on nearly 121K miles on it. We have replaced a battery, the front brakes, and a floating piece in the master cylinder. That is it! We do the proper maintenance to it as needed and I would be fine driving it across America!! Great car!

Cars.com was a godsend. I was able to search for the exact vehicle type (is it me or is stick hard to find?) I wanted. The dealer was excellent and the price perfect. Carfax was on the money too. Just to let you know how good the car was. It was inspected in Jersey for 2013 and living upstate NY, I had to get it reinspected here. My 2000 CRV passed all tests with flying colors!

I've bought mine used 180.000KM and previous owner take an avarage care of it. So i started to change all the rubber parts and the head gasket. Other than this it didn't need anything. runs very well. good consumption (8l/100km) if you are living in a city which have bad roads CRV is what you want. it has everything you need except modern look. you have to be careful at the corners because suspension is soft

Bought the '00 CR-V as a daily driver. I was very impressed with it overall. Performance in acceleration and maintaining speeds 80mph and above require a lot of effort from the motor. This is one of the most dependable SUV out there with 100,000 miles and above ... they drive like they are new when properly maintained. Very easy vehicle to drive and much safer than the Civic I had prior to this.
