Looking For Reliability and Value...And Finding It

When I went shopping for a new car, I was looking for two main things - price and reliability. I'm a retired grandmother - still very active, but way past the days when flashy cars turned my head. I went to Honda, because past experience showed me that Hondas keep their value over time, and they are priced right. I loved the CRV at first sight. It is a comfortable ride - I made sure my test ride went over railroad tracks and bumpy roads. It's roomy enough for my grandchildren and the seats fold down at the touch of a lever - giving me room to haul bikes! I got a great deal on the price by shopping the internet, and the best part? Well, I didn't think a flashy car would still turn my head...but my car makes me smile every time I walk out into the driveway and see it!

My new CRV EX-L is so much better than I imagined!

After test driving other makes in the same category I find the 2014 Honda CRV Ex-L to be superior over other models even $10-30,000 more in most features: in comfort, safety, proven reliability, maneuvering, style, handling, MPG and accessories. Only one thing I would prefer some assist with opening rear lift back when carrying packages. Once open, there is a power assist.

Replaced my 2005 CR-V

I looked at several other small SUV's but kept comparing them all back to the Honda CR-V. The only things I didn't like about my 2005 was the lack of a center console, awkward folding back seats, lack of power, and a side-opening rear door. The 2014 has a nifty interior, really slick folding back seats, 25 more horsepower, and a rear door that doesn't block traffic when you open it. I have plenty of room for a dawghouse bass, amplifiers, instruments, and another picker. I'm blown away with the electronics and music capabilities that are available on all models. That backup camera also gives me better aim at our banjo player. Almost got him twice.

Best of Both Worlds

The CR-V handles like a car; tight turns are no problem, it doesn't bog down going up hills and there's no need for excessive braking SUVs, but I feel more secure in it than in a car. I was incredibly impressed with its handling and even enjoy taking windier roads now - it takes turns better than my old Sonata. The fuel efficiency is the only questionable factor. I haven't put many highway miles on it yet, and it comes in a little lower than the estimated efficiency for city, but I've only been driving it for a month so this could improve once the engine is broken in more. The standard tech features are nice to have, although they didn't influence my decision to buy this vehicle. The center console is huge and keeps things out of sight. I know some people have complained about the small rear windows, and how they had trouble with blind spots, but I have not had these problems personally. The back up camera automatically comes on when the car is shifted into reverse and this gives a more than adequate view of whats behind and off to the sides of you. The rear windows are small, but it doesn't interfere enough to cause issues.

Purchased this CRV (HONDA) because of Honda's reliability, design, and utility. Steering is very nimble but tends to need constant adjustment in windy conditions.The interior materials appear to be more plastic then other cars I own. I have the AWD feature only because it was the only thing available, we live in florida and don't expect to use it much. We drove to Florida two days after purchase and were pleased with the comfort considering it's size, managed 30 mpg despite two passengers and a loaded cargo area. The one feature that seemed redundant was how many displays concerned fuel mileage. Enjoying the car very much.Have driven 2500 miles and all seems well, ask me at 100k miles.

Most Comfortable Car I have owned

by from Marylando on April 7, 2014

Very comfortable, safe and easy to drive. Navigation system so useful. I have had a lot of cars in my life, but this is car is amazing. Also, for long distances it is totally reliable.

Really bad experience about the product

Bought a new 2014 Honda CRV-EX from a local Dealer (airport Honda Knoxville). Dealer is very friendly, but the product is very low quality. Especially, the Door panel and the other plastic on the doors. Even a small hit of seat belt makes a scratch and plastic peels off. I just ran 200 miles, and already have many scratches on my driver side. Before that I had Two Toyota Products and never had such complain. I will never recommend anyone this product.
