Pleased with it.

Use this to commute to work everyday. Pleased with the comfort and the gas mileage of the car. Since it is a Honda hopefully I will get a car that will last me for a few years with trouble-free motoring.

Maximum Reliability

I highly recommend this crossover if Reliability is your #1 concern . If you sevice your HRV in a timely manner, your HRV will make it to 300,000 miles, without hesitation.

Love my HRv

Bought this car new in 2016. Had it for 5 years and 113,000 miles. I have driven this car 6 times from NY to FL and back. No issues with comfort. I love the magic seats and have packed out this car to the max every time I make this trip. I tend to be a fast driver and haven't had any issues with acceleration. Would I buy another HRv? Sure would.

Replaced transmission before the muffler

Grappone Honda gave Fast competent service, my 2016 hrv transmission failed December 2020 @ 110,000 near end of extended 125,000 warranty. Glad I got the extended warranty. Going to keep my eye on the new CVT transmissions fill plug and breather port. The HRV AWD has handled snow perfectly so we’re keeping it. Dealership also noted our keyless entry was failing and replaced the start/stop switch under warranty, to bad it didn’t cover the water in the tail lights. No charges all work done under warranty. Just wish all car manufacturers would design cars to not allow pests to enter in cabin air filter and engine filters where they like to store pounds of nuts, it can’t be that hard to design an accessible removable mesh grill. Our 2008 Element still running strong with a hand made mesh grill installed over engine filter opening, no nuts in the filter box! Ps all fit,civic,hrv with CVT need to keep eye on the CVT fill port and keep its breather port clean. Breather port gets blocked and pops the fill plug off. Look on line for the ( Honda service report A19090B Version 1 ) All the info you need.

This Car Has Everything That You Need AND Want

This car has everything that you need and more. The front and back seats are leather, which adds a nice touch to the interior. The front dashboard and the settings for heat/AC are all touch-screen which adds a really sleek touch. You can text and call from the touchscreen. There is not a lot of space for extra drinks, besides the middle compartment which has 2 drink holders. The side-lane and back-up camera are incredibly useful and accurate. The sunroof/moon-roof is a nice touch! You can lay the back seats down, which creates a plethora of safe. So far, the car is great on gas and does not take much cash to fill.

Best new car experience from start to finish

I took delivery 08/30/16, put 135K on it without any problems whatsoever...averaged 27mpg in the city..... 34 on long road trips. Only major expenses were brakes and tires.... I'm 6'01'', 290lbs....Always comfortable driving it. Always handled well, particularly on the curvy route 9W near West Point and the Taconic State Pkwy through Putnam. I loved it some much, I just took delivery yesterday on a 2020 exactly like the old one.

Hondas are great

This is a very quiet and comfortable crossover. I've had better stereos but this one is OK. The gas mileage is good for a larger vehicle, the largest I've ever had. Lots of cargo room, especially with the back seats down. Kind of tough to get the hatch up sometimes. I wouldn't buy one new, got mine (4 years old) for $15,500 and only 33k miles.

Fantastic city car! Can park it anywhere!

The HR-V is nimble and responsive - you can park it anywhere. It's on a FIT chassis and can hold everything, way more than you think! The AWD is terrific in the winter!

Great Small SUV great for any use

THE economical SUV is small and comfortable to drive. Gas economy is great 28mpg to 32mpg on average depending on the drive. It also, has great comfortable fit many things in the back seat and trunk, flexible with space.

The newest car I’ve ever owned!

I’m very satisfied with this Honda HRV. We were upgrading from a pre owned Honda Fit purchased 9 years ago. I was really happy to buy a slightly newer car, get the same fuel economy ,with all wheel drive and higher suspension:-)
