Good run around car but could be better.

It is a great run around car. There are a few things we didn't realize when we purchased our HRV. Things you don't think about until you go to use them. For example we assumed since there was an automatic rear open button on the key faab it had it. It does not. This is a car we planned to keep for many years (into our old age) and the back hatch is rather hard to close. No review mirror defrost (our 2005 & 2007 Honda's both have this). I miss the option to hold down the unlock key to roll down your windows (this is wonderful to have during the summer months where we live). No automatic unlock button on the passenger side (only drivers side). Everthing shows on the interior (we have cloth). It is almost like it has holes and grabs everything it possibly can.


2022 HR-V sport

I Have a 22 sport in blizzard pearl which I absolutely love with the color contrast black wheels and trim. The look is very sporty yet upscale and sophisticated. Got it 2 years ago for 25k otd another positive. Unfortunately that's about all I care for with the car. Seats are uncomfortable for any long distance. I haven't for the life of me in 2 years found a good seating position, luckily it has a tilt/telescope wheel so I can at least have the wheel at a comfortable spot. I really wish these came with power seats. Around town it feels lite and easy to maneuver even with it's huge rear blindspots. But it is SLOW to get to highway speeds and the cvt constantly fights to find a ratio it likes with the anemic engine. Suspension is terrible. Way too choppy on and off the highway, it really doesn't like any kind of bump. Back up cam works decently. Radio is just bad all around from ease of use to the visuals themselves just looks old and grainy. I'll be keeping it until spring and can't wait to get into something else. Not a terrible car but there are much better options.


Decent for the money.

1 year - no problems. Maintenance service was fast and good. No solutions made that I could find for lowering back hatch for short people, like me. Weatherproof floor mats a nice touch. Decent for the money.



Great highway cruiser. Drive it normal and it reacts to your habits. Not alot of get up and go power but it likes to be driven. Great on gas. Would absolutely recommend. Small yet big. Your propped up, not feel like sitting on ground especially when you're getting out of it.


This car is a disappointment

This car sucks, rear passenger complaints no air, only from the front, embarrassing 2022 not like the pilot, that has air flow, worst car I ever bought.


Inconvenient and Uncomfortable

I've been driving Hondas for over 25 years. It's no secret that I'm a Honda lover. I've had Civics, Accords, Odysseys, Ridgelines... you name it. But while my 2020 Accord Sport is at the dealership for a little maintenance, the dealership gave me a 2022 HR-V Sport to use while I wait for my new tires to be shipped to them. After 4 days with this vehicle, I can't wait to give it back. The placement of everything is inconvenient and uncomfortable. My elbows hit my drink in the cup holder. The cord for my phone is next to my foot, and the cubby to store my phone, gum, etc is down near my feet. The arm rest on the door is too low for my arm to rest on it. Mind you, I'm a 5'5" woman. So it's not like I'm a 6+ foot tall man. Then there's the weird thing under the front seats that prevent you from moving your left leg back, and keeps your passenger in the front seat from sitting comfortably as well. Then there's this oddly placed plastic screen at the bottom of the steering wheel that keeps you from gripping that part of the wheel. And on the sport trim, the steering wheel doesn't tilt. It sits at an odd angle that's not comfortable to drive. Leg room in both the front and back seats is lacking tremendously. My 5 year old has barely any room to get in and out of his booster seat, and he's small for 5 years old. My adult children can't fit at all, and none of them are considered "tall". My younger kids can't reach the oddly high door handles on the outside to let themselves into the back seat. So I have to walk around, opening doors for my kids. I don't know who Honda saw as their target demographic, but I'd bet the farm they were aiming at 4 foot tall teenage girls who don't plan on having any passengers. It's only got 900 miles on it and it has a bit of shaking/rumbling upon starting it up.



I got the HRV-Sport and I absolutely love everything about it. I really can’t wait to drive it in the snow. This is my first Honda I have ever bought and I will most likely be sticking with just Honda vehicles


Great HRV

I love this HRV. I live in MA and it’s a beast in the snow. I’ve heard that it’s slow but I found it has plenty of pep. I love the looks of it. It’s awesome. I picked this my 3rd Honda for the dependability and value
