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.

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.

We researched and test rode a few new and used cars, and decided on CR-V due to the solid ride, back up camera, reliability and safety. My in-laws have a 2004 CR-V that runs smoother than my 2014! While it drives smooth, It runs really rough while stopped at redlights!! The idle is so rough, if the windows are down a little, they actually vibrate. I put it in neutral sometimes because it's so annoying! I sent American Honda a letter, but they never responded, and the tech's at my dealership said that "rough idle is a characteristic of the car". What?? This characteristic wasn't disclosed when I bought the car! The vehicle idled smooth in the beginning, or we would have never bought it. The rough idle didn't occur until appr. 9,500 miles. Also, on cold mornings , there is a grinding sound that lasts a split second on start up. I hope Honda rectifies this, I never thought i'd be disappointed in my CR-V!

We have had this brand new 2014 Honda CRV for one year now and have less than 4500 miles on it. Gas mileage is horrible. We get from 18-21 mpg daIly, mostly city driving. My old 06 giant size Chevy 1500 Silverado would get 21-25 mpg with its V8. What a shock. Speaking of shocks, this CRV is very rough riding, very similar to the Jeep Liberty we used to have. It does not take much to feel a shock to the spine on many small bumps. Otherwise, this is a comfortable vehicle on the highway. Engine noise is loud and we have to keep the radio turned up to hear the music. Love the Bluetooth. TPM light stays on and will not go out. Rear view camera is great to have, otherwise view is difficult, including through the small side windows.
