Traded in my TT QUATRO 225 as needed more space. Went for top of the range diesel 2007 for my wife as it had all the options onboard and we are very pleased with our choice. Contacted Honda about a small blemish in the paint (car 4 years old) on the tailgate and they took the car in and had the tailgate resprayed, doing a fantastic job, at no cost to me. THIS IS WHAT YOU CALL CUSTOMER SERVICE, as the car was not even purchased through them but an independent dealer. Thought i would miss... (read more)

We agonised for months over spending £22k on a car, but finally decided in Mar 2010 to get the Honda CR-V 2.0 ES Auto. Thus far we've been delighted with the decision. It really is very comfortable and easy to drive - considerably better than our top-of-the-range Scenics, of which we'd had several, and which were proving unreliable after 3 years.
Fuel economy: after 4k miles, I tried driving super-gently at 55mph for an hour, and managed to average 42mpg. After that, settled down to a... (read more)

We love our CRV. It has been absolutely reliable although wish it did more to the gallon with current prices. During the snow earlier this year my husband had to borrow it on several occasions as his Mercedes C Class could not make it off the drive let alone down the road. The Honda took on the snow with no problem at all. Has large boot (we have a large dog) and plenty of leg room (again more than the Mercedes!) in the back for the 2 boys. I have the 2.2 petrol Sport model and it cruises... (read more)

Honda CR-V 2002, Petrol. Having driven Hondas for many years this was a move up from an HR-V which, although a great little car, was just a bit too small and only had 3 doors. The CR-V is a great crossover vehicle and will never take the place of a full blown Landrover but what I asked myself was 'How often do I actaully need real mud plugging 4WD?' my answer was 'can't remember the last time I did, if ever'... Despite living out in the Norfolk (UK) countryside and with more than a little... (read more)

I had a Honda Accord from new in the 1980s & it was great. I've had a diesel CR-V for 2 yrs and its good, but not awe-inspiring. Not being a boy racer, I'm more interested in reliability and utility, & this CR-V is certainly reliable! Plenty of room in the boot & for back-seat passengers. Driving position is comfortable, cruise useful on long trips if the road is fairly clear. Fuel consumption average - I get about 37/38 mpg. Rear door with spare attached is quite heavy - especially for... (read more)

It feels like an expensive car, very refined.
Great car, fantastic on the road manners, when it finally gets moving its quite fiery through its mid range if you keep the revs high can outsprint some of the fastest in mid range.
Not too bad off road either but its no trail blazer just be careful think and it will get you there. I like the cars image I think Honda are actually looking like quality cars throughout there range. (read more)

The Honda CR-V is a class beater for space and reliability. Easy to live with and hugely practical. (read more)

The CRV is basically a jacked up estate car, if you want a high driving position, and a large boot coupled with good legroom its ideal, if you want to drive up snowdon forget it. But it is a Honda, so very little street cred, but also very little trouble, the engine is the bullet proof IVTEC, or the not so bullet proof diesel.
overall very pleased with the car, ideal family transport, and same emissions band as a mondeo so no hassle from tree huggers. (read more)
