Fun Car

Great car to travel with and a gas saver, with powerful vtec engine, awd for winter, excited for what this car will do for me and my family.

Great car

I purchased this car last fall, since I have put 5k miles on and its been flawless. The car is good on gas returning 23 to 24 MPG on the high way. Regularly take it for 2+ hour drives with no worry. The suv has plenty of ground clearance which is great to get you to the trail head or to that remote fishing spot. Car is a little underpowered, but what you lose in the power you make up for in fuel economy, space, reliability, comfort, and over all ease of use.

Was clooking for a 2005-2006 CR-V

I bought my CR-V in August with 149,000 miles, in good shape and reasonably priced. It's been 5 months and I am again enjoying driving this Gen 2 CR-V (had a 2002 previously). The lease on my Outback was up and no longer wishing to have a car payment I bought the CR-V. It is an absolutely wonderful car to drive. I went for the 2006 because of some changes (improvements) Honda made to it. One being the full compliment of air bags and standard ABS . It handles well and is fun to drive. No longer having a car payment is a big plus also. I'm doing preventive maintenance on it now due to the mileage , a little at a time not because I have to but because I want to. Mine is a rare 5 speed manual! My daughters' Subaru lease is up soon and is also looking at 05-06 CR-Vs too!

Reliable, Comfortable, Great Value!

This compact crossover was just the car I needed. Reliable, economical, comfortable, practical, fun, fast enough for daily driving, safe. It was a great commuting car, and got a lot of use lugging gardening equipment and supplies all around the area. It was easier to handle than my old pickup truck, and had a better sound system to boot. I loved this SUV!

One of the Best every day cars out there!

The second generation Honda CR-V is one of the best cars for daily use! The Honda K24 engine is one of the if not the best 4-cylinder VTEC engines Honda has ever built (seen in Accord, CR-V, Element and Acura TSX of mid-to-late 2000's). The interior is well-designed and purposeful. Very reliable! Great utility and gas mileage. Sharp steering and handling! The engine could use 30-50 extra hp when carrying more than one passenger and /or load. I have owned it for 14 years since new and counting! They don't make them any more as good as this one!

5.0

One of the most reliable vehicles I ever owned
