Honda CR-V, everyone wants one.

Overall very happy with it. Excellent safety ratings, powerful, feels like a big vehicle in a smaller package. The interior is very attractive, good fuel consumption, excellent braking system. I had no problem with that. It drives very well, drives very quietly. It's great to work for Honda.

Ilene R. on June 25, 2021

My Honda CR-V has plenty of room for a family of four.

The Honda CR-V is a fantastic family car. It's reliable, safe and my kids love it. Since owning the car I haven't had any major mechanical problems. Love the big trunk. Lots of space to carry my kids stuff. I will always buy a Honda when I need a car.

molly s on June 25, 2021

It's a good car because it's reliable.

I have no idea, I like my car because I seem to be fine with it because it's so smooth. It's a nice car but I have to share it with my mother because we only have one car that we share. There really aren't any issues with the car itself, but it's a nice car to own and drive.

Brianna L on June 24, 2021

The best car I've ever had in my life.

It's comfortable, at some point tired it has to be readjusted and it also needs air in the vehicle. The overall performance of this car is excellent. No scratches or dents. Pleasant to drive. I have never had any problems. I like that this car had cup holders and it's a 4 seater car.

My trusty blue Honda CR-V.

I love my Honda CR-V! I first bought this car when it was just two years old, in 2015. At the time it seemed like the next big thing in SUVs and I was blown away by everything the car offered me. It offers exceptional comfort, especially when driving overland, and has a very good fuel economy tune. I can drive my car up to 400 miles before I have to refill the tank. The Honda CR-V is an extremely reliable car that has always been there for me when I needed it. There have rarely been any problems with this car, I can always count on it to get me where I need to be at the right time. It has never let me down and has only gotten stronger over the years. It even has a navigation system and reversing camera that were so ahead of their time that it feels like a new car every time I get in. For a 7 year old car it's a real trooper.

Kris B. on June 20, 2021

Reliable, safe, will buy again.

CR-V is very reliable. I have had the car for 7 years and it has never needed more than the usual maintenance. It's safe and reliable. I plan to get a new one in a few years. It is wonderful. Also much more luggage space than comparable cars from other manufacturers.

Stephen R. on June 17, 2021

2013 Honda CR-V reliable and affordable.

I have the middle trim level, which includes Bluetooth, four-wheel drive, and a sunroof. The car is very versatile. I like the way all the seats fold flat in the back. I realize that there are many similar vehicles on the road. The car also copes well in the winters of the Northeast US. The car's first set of tires had to be replaced after 26,000 miles. Since owning the vehicle there have been no major or minor mechanical issues which is one of the main reasons I bought the vehicle.

Glad c on June 4, 2021

The Honda CR-V is extremely reliable and comfortable!

My Honda CR-V was very reliable and had very few problems. I bring it in for service once a year and beyond that I've only experienced my battery drain once. The car has real leather seats and a very spacious rear seat/trunk, making it a very comfortable car. Gasoline mileage is pretty good and the car uses less gas, which is another benefit. However, the voice command technology is terrible and the touchscreen is a bit slow, but that could be because the car is almost 8 years old.

Mal P on June 2, 2021

I love the Honda CR-V, it's a dream to drive.

I love my Honda CR-V, it's the perfect size for my family of 3 and still has plenty of room, runs great and has amazing fuel economy. The folding seats are great for grocery shopping and for easily storing bikes in the back seat. Four-wheel drive traverses the snow with ease.

pam s on June 2, 2021

Overall a decent vehicle.

This vehicle was very reliable. Mechanically there were no problems. While it's a bit smaller than I'd like for comfort reasons, it does get pretty good mileage on both city and highway, around 25 or 26mpg in the city and sometimes up to 34mpg on the highway.

rebeca c am 25. May 2021

Comfortable and economical.

I really like my car, I've had it for a few years and it hasn't had any major problems. It's a relatively fast, light and versatile car. It's quite cheap. The seats are comfortable, leather and with automatic adjustment. Had some problems with oil leaks and the battery but nothing too big. It's a great car for the city, but also for going out on the road and for traveling comfortably, pleasantly and economically.

Junio ​​W am 14. May 2021

I like the throttle function and the ability to use the cruise control.

It was a really good car, there were hardly any repairs. The only problem is other people bumping into it in the parking lot and damaging it. The air conditioning is quite good and has many additional features, e.g. B. how much gas you have and how far you can go on the gas you have.

report m am 10. May 2021

CR-V is perfect for seniors. There is ample space for walking aids/wheelchairs.

I'm 74 years old and it can be difficult to get in and out of most sedans as they sit lower. The CR-V suits me better. I love riding it and I have plenty of room for others and the things we need to carry. It's comfortable and efficient. Mine is white and I love the color.

Nancy am 8. May 2021

trunk. This car has plenty of space if you ever need to help someone get around.

This car was very reliable, however I wish the air conditioning was stronger. I have taken this car on several road trips and it has never given me any problems. I like the fact that the back seat folds down and there's plenty of room to store things. I was able to fit a bike and even a water heater.

Bethany W am 7. May 2021

2013 Honda CR-V: perfect long distance/family car.

I love this car! Perfect for road trips with the armrests, comfortable seats and large rear seat/trunk. I haven't had any major issues with this car other than routine repairs like changing the oil or tires. This car runs well on petrol, making it a great car for frequent drivers. The radio can be heard clearly from the front and rear seats. There are rear wipers too!

Sara C am 5. May 2021

I love my Honda CR-V.

I love my Honda CR-V. The only performance issues I had were the breaks. Sometimes the car shakes when braking. I have taken it to various stores to have it repaired but so far they have not been able to solve the problem. Otherwise the car runs smooth, has great fuel economy, is comfortable and spacious and meets all my needs.

petirrojo p am 28. April 2021

It's great in the snow. I love it.

Great in the snow. I never had a problem. I love it, would buy another. Hondas are great. I feel safe with my grandchildren in the car. Everyone who stopped driving it said it was a great handling car. And I don't like driving in the snow, but I don't mind my car.

Yirel f am 27. April 2021

I love my SUV, it's a great family vehicle.

I have owned this vehicle since 2016. I love my car but wish the first, second and third row seats had more room. And that the trunk was bigger. Otherwise I love the SUV. It's great for my family of four. Ideal for family outings and bringing extra guests.

Gina C am 26. April 2021

Interior lighting changes color.

Orientation of the rear wheels on a non-4WD version. They tell me I need to get it fixed to make it 4WD so I can align it properly, which doesn't make any sense. Repair will cost over 1000 to fix something that doesn't match my car's make, to create something I don't want.

Ricardo S am 23. April 2021

The best engine for the long haul.

On gas the car drives great: 22 mph in the city and 30-32 mph on the highway. The sound system is very crystal clear. It has Bluetooth and can connect more than one phone. Excellent handling in corners and in tight spaces. Just as good off-road as on the road. Comfort for people of all heights and heights. Enough space for 5 more pets.

Ronnie B. am 17. April 2021

Honda CR-V 2013: handy and functional.

The Honda CR-V is extremely reliable and easy to drive. The ride is smooth, comfortable and offers plenty of space for people and luggage. The rear seats fold flat for more storage space. It features a sunroof and a rear wiper with a heated rear window.

Gordon f am 15. April 2021

My amazing Honda CR-V experience.

Very comfortable seats. Plenty of legroom and storage space for all passengers. The rear seats recline, love it. Very high reliability. I love the plastic, it stays beautiful longer. A little noisy when driving. It was very reliable and had very comfortable seats. Ideal for small families.

annmarie n am 12. April 2021

Better handling in bad weather.

The 4WD CR-V is great to drive, especially in wet or snowy weather. It drives very well with little to no problems. It's practical and comfortable and I would recommend it to anyone who values ​​good mileage, handling and performance.

Taryn S. am 8. April 2021

Overall a great car with good qualities.

It's a bit cramped if you have kids who need car seats, but otherwise great. It's a bit smaller, but driving is easier than driving an Odyssey. Some of our neighbors' children have christened our silver glitters! It's a nice, fun car and I enjoy it.

Land l am 8. April 2021

Small SUV. Great family vehicle. Car seats fit in easily.

I love that it works great with gas, is very reliable and cheap to repair. I love the way it looks. It's easy to spot. Comfortable. I like the large amount of space in the front and back seats. Lots of space when we are packing for vacation with a family of four. I like how easy the seats fold down.

Guillermo E. am 3. April 2021

Lasts forever with this mileage, more than 150,000 miles is normal.

No complaints. Good mileage, reliable, excellent maintenance, good value for money. You can count on being able to drive another 150,000 kilometers without any problems.

Heidi B. am 3. April 2021

It's very popular. It doesn't fit well for three children, but very well for two children.

I love having enough space but not being too bulky. There is plenty of legroom. I like the functions

Kristen T am 1. April 2021

Great vehicle for any occasion.

My CR-V is great in all weather and drives great in the snow. I like the economy function, which allows me to save gas. The car is spacious and adaptable as the rear seats are foldable. Makes moving furniture or larger items easier. There is also enough space to walk to the unit in the theater. Driving is smooth and easy. I like the lumbar support and the different movement variants of the seat and wheels. Heated leather seats are also great in winter. The sunroof is a nice touch and perfect for summer days. The leather does not get too hot even when the sunroof is on. Stereo is good in the base package, upgrading to Bluetooth calling is a must. There is plenty of storage space in the vehicle, which is ideal for those who like to be well prepared. It is easy to keep clean and extremely durable. I find the seats comfortable and the legroom ample for even the tallest passengers. I have used this vehicle on many road trips and I find it to be just the vehicle needed for a trip.

beth h on March 31, 2021

Overall a great vehicle for families.

Great fuel economy. Comfortable seats. It drives very well. Lots of space. Ideal for vacation or in the city. Comfortable, heated leather seats that are easy to clean. luggage trolley. It has a sunroof, ideal for nice days or starry nights. Bluetooth.

Stephanie on March 29, 2021

With proper care and maintenance, they will last for many years.

The only problem I had is that the battery dies pretty soon. . . Luckily the vehicle was still under warranty and it was replaced free of charge. Overall it's a reliable and safe vehicle and I like that the fuel economy is pretty good for an SUV.

Judy B on March 28, 2021

Super reliable and profitable!

I love slingshots! I drove my last CRV Honda for over 20 years without repairs. Just tyres, brakes, tubes etc. Very reliable and excellent performance! I loved being able to move almost anything and having so much room in the back! I will not buy anything but a Honda!

KtC on March 28, 2021

Blind spots are very bad. Good gas mileage. We bought the practical navigation system

I like that it has decent gas mileage. A major downside is that it has very poor blind spots.

Juan H. on March 27, 2021

The best vehicle I've ever owned.

I've been driving for 49 years and own over a dozen vehicles. I have never had a vehicle with such good fuel economy. This vehicle has front and side airbags for all occupants and is very solid. The oil change does not depend on the mileage, but on the driving conditions and the kilometers driven. I have always bought new vehicles and this is by far the best purchase I have ever made. I love the reliability and safety of this SUV,

Marilyn M on March 26, 2021

I am in love with my Honda CR-V, an ideal retirement vehicle.

I love my Honda CR-V. i had two Before that I had a Honda Civic. The Honda CR-V is very versatile, very comfortable, easy to drive and has never given me any problems. I have owned this car for about seven years and my only expenses other than regular maintenance have been replacing the tyres. Honda makes a good product.

palmadita w on March 24, 2021

Reliable. fun driving. Low maintenance. fuel savings.

No problems with my CR-V. Good performance and a very reliable vehicle. Easy to drive and very comfortable. All basic functions are easy to access and work perfectly. This vehicle is low maintenance and costs less to maintain than other cars. It also has good fuel economy. Good vehicle to own for a long time.

Jaime D. on March 21, 2021

Comfortable and reliable family vehicle.

In 2008 I preferred the center console - it gave me more space. In addition, the heater on the driver's side of the car is not always the most reliable. Otherwise, I am very satisfied. It's very comfortable - it comfortably seats a family of four and has plenty of boot space.

kathy b on March 20, 2021

I like how I feel higher up. Getting in and out is easier.

My car was reliable. So far only the brakes have been repaired. It is comfortable. I like to sit higher than in a normal car.

Elizabeth H on March 19, 2021

The car has a rear wiper.

No problem with this car. Fuel consumption is good, plenty of space in the back. The controls are well placed and easy to use. The car is checked every time the oil content drops to 15%. There are no repairs or additional costs with this car. I would highly recommend this model to anyone looking for a good car.

maureen un on March 19, 2021

Good vehicle for transporting dogs.

My vehicle is spacious and has plenty of cargo space in the rear. I drive my dogs in it and it's spacious enough for them. It has the right amount of pickup to get on the freeway. It is reliable and has not had to be repaired. It offers the right legroom and I have no complaints.

Gene D on March 17, 2021

2013 Honda CR-V with four-wheel drive and integrated navigation.

I bought the CR-V with the built in sat nav which I love and this particular trim pack also included XM radio capability, heated seats and a rear view camera. These are all things I never thought I would add, but now I don't know how I lived without them for so long. I wish there was some sort of automatic update for the sat nav rather than having to buy a manual update periodically, especially as it never seems to be quite up to date with all the route and location changes. Mileage is reasonable and I love the 4WD for Northeast winters. In combination with anti-lock braking and stability control, this has proven to be indispensable time and time again. I find the car quite comfortable to drive, but my tall and tall friend finds the passenger seating area a bit cramped. I have it regularly serviced at the dealer and additional wear and tear repairs have been minimal. In general, this car did not fail me. As my fourth Honda in a row (of the five cars I have ever owned) it has successfully continued my long and trusted relationship with the Honda brand.

Jaime R. on March 17, 2021

Honda has a reliable reputation and seems to last a long time.

I want my car to have heated seats. I don't like the noisy VTC actuator. Honda should try to fix this problem.

Esteban A on March 16, 2021

The CR-V is a quality vehicle.

The Honda CR-V is a well-designed small sport utility vehicle. This vehicle is very versatile and easy to use. A reliable car with great fuel consumption and medium range. It has easy-to-use and modern security features to help you connect with the world.

Mike S on March 16, 2021

Initial cost plus maintenance and fuel is good value for money.

good size It can comfortably accommodate my family and any luggage. There may be a lack of power on very steep hills.

michelle l on March 15, 2021

It runs great on gas! Perfect for small families. Great for road trips

I like that it is compact enough for me and my kids. I like that it has a lid to hide my contents in my trunk.

michelle r on March 12, 2021

Honda ideal for small families.

We switched to the Honda CR-V after our Nissan Maxima started running nickels and had blacked us out to the point that the constant repairs were no longer worthwhile. We've been very happy with the CR-V so far. It features four-wheel drive, which gives me a little confidence when driving outside. It's big enough for us to fit most of our son's baby gear (stroller, high chair, etc.) in the back. The fuel consumption is also quite good. The vehicle drives well and the brakes do not stick too much. In a few years, if we decide to add our family, we may need to switch to a van.

marnie k on March 9, 2021

Reliable and smooth vehicle. Enough space. Good features.

i love the car I had no problems. very reliable. Smooth and quiet ride. Beautiful interior. i love bluetooth The only minor gripe is that the rear headrests sometimes create blind spots. The interior seats are very comfortable. Lots of drink holders. Very spacious console.

Kelly C on March 9, 2021

Economical and reliable Honda CR-V.

It drives like a car but offers plenty of storage space, especially with the second seat folded down. Headroom is a bit short for tall passengers, but legroom is good. Outstanding fuel economy performance in the city and on the highway. The rear camera is not very good (not very clear) and makes a lot of noise on the road. Otherwise, I love the comfort and reliability.

I like using it very much and will try to get more.

For me, my vehicle is so good and very comfortable that anyone can try it out. I received it without any problems and I really enjoy using it. My vehicle is much faster and runs very well, so I am very happy with my vehicles. I think everyone should try it.

Ian M. on March 7, 2021

Reliable CR-V and fun to drive.

Great car with a smooth ride. No too heavy or light feeling when riding. There are no really bad blind spots. Have a decent amount of power to give to others. At higher speeds it feels safe. Street noise is minimal. Maintenance mainly consists of normal services that are not too expensive.

Charlie H on March 4, 2021

The rear seat has a folding part.

We really like the higher seats; You can see the road and surroundings better than with a traditional limousine. The rear area offers space for a lot of luggage etc. And you can fold down a small part of the back seat. In case someone wants to sleep there or transport something for a long time. It is very easy to pack and unpack packages and groceries.

Terry d on March 2, 2021

Reliable, comfortable and fun to drive. It will take you wherever you want!

I really like my Honda CRV. It's great for fuel economy, handles well and has plenty of room for luggage, cargo, groceries etc. I would definitely buy another one.

i like c on February 28, 2021

I love my Honda CR-V

I bought my CRV used 3 years ago. Other than normal maintenance, I haven't had any issues. i love my car The trunk is fantastic!

Karen C on February 27, 2021

Achieves good fuel economy performance and easily handles the roads

It has good mileage. He has a smooth gait. It has a beautiful interior

friend h on February 26, 2021

Good fuel economy and easy to drive and park. It also has a very large hatchback to carry a large load.

I love our CRV. It is compact and easy to use. It also works well with gasoline.

Dic on February 25, 2021

Great little SUV. Great fuel economy and navigation system.

I love the gas mileage and size of my vehicle. No complaints

Jaime D. on February 24, 2021

The reliability factor of this vehicle is very high.

It is a very reliable vehicle and has reasonable gas mileage. It lacks some of the newer safety features that would be very valuable today.

petirrojo v on February 24, 2021

Fuel consumption is good and driving is pleasant.

I like the height... easy to get on and off. There was plenty of storage space in the rear. Gets good mileage. It doesn't require an oil change as often and keeps up with the number of miles I can put on before needing fuel.

Jeff L on February 23, 2021

The running costs of the vehicle were low.

I had no problems. I do regular maintenance. Easy to maintain. It has all the features I want. Low running costs. I've owned Hondas in the past and have had a great experience with them so far. I would recommend Honda to my friends and family.

Julianna R on February 21, 2021

Honda CR-V 10/10 Extremely reliable, ideal for touring.

I love this car, it's extremely reliable and has amazing fuel economy. The entire car is spacious and very comfortable, from the seat and legroom to the boot space. I have never had any problems with this car, I highly recommend it.

Madison H on February 21, 2021

Great car at great value.

The only problem I've had since I bought my car is a leaking gas cap. I just had to replace it, but it cost $40. So basically no problems. Being short, the CR-V offers a lot of visibility. The CR-V is very comfortable and spacious. Fuel economy is great.

amanda b on February 21, 2021

Sudan 4-door pretty average. Blue mines.

It has been a great vehicle for most of my ownership. I had a few electrical issues here and there, right down to the radio shorting out. After a year I had to replace the air conditioner, which was probably the most annoying thing I had to deal with. I can say that if you continue to take care of this car, it will ultimately serve you very well.

casey g on February 20, 2021

Great, safe family car with all the trimmings.

My CR-V is my favorite vehicle and has an amazing safety rating. It is easy to maneuver and offers a lot of space. Great fuel economy. Easy to use navigation and audio. I love that it has Bluetooth and I can easily talk to family or friends. My next car will be an updated CR-V.

susie w on February 19, 2021

Functional and reliable!

The vehicle is very comfortable in both the front and back seats. So far it has been very reliable and required minimal maintenance (oil change, new battery, tyres, wipers). Great balance between usable cargo and passenger size with good fuel economy. Nothing flashy, but a great family car!

Andreas A on February 18, 2021

The vehicle has four-wheel drive and works fairly well in snow.

I like that it has all-wheel drive and lots of cargo space. I also like that the fuel economy is decent. I don't like that the roof rack isn't standard.

Diane P on February 18, 2021

I'm really undecided - love/hate

I am completely undecided about this car. I love its durability, it rides beautifully in the snow, it handles well in the rain and it makes me feel safe. But it's SMALL! Too small! Three children fit in the back, not even teenagers. The trunk is also deceptively small. I don't like that it's flat because food tends to fall over and spill.

Karen v on February 17, 2021

Honda CR-V ideal for an individual or family.

I bought the car used. I love it! Honda CR-V is a reliable car. It is large enough to load multiple large items. Mileage is great. I have great service at the Honda dealer. I have owned CR-Vs in the past and the only reason I gave them up was to price a new car.

north heath on February 17, 2021

Efficient storage functions.

The car is very comfortable and has plenty of storage space. The navigation system is very useful. I particularly like the many storage compartments in the car and the center console is also very practical. My model has seat warmers which I like to use in the colder months. I also like the Bluetooth capabilities. One of my only complaints about the car is that the doors don't unlock when you park the car. For some this might be a safety feature, but for me it's a nuisance.

Birke m on February 17, 2021

I love my car!

i love my car I previously owned a Mazda Tribute and absolutely hated this car. I knew I wanted a Honda and when I tested the CR-V I had no doubts. It drives incredibly smooth, has lots of space so is a great family car and runs great on fuel. I drive long distances to work every week and a half and fill up. In bad weather it's great. I have heated seats which I love! The driver's seat has so many options to make the seat more comfortable for you. In addition, assembling and disassembling a car seat is very easy, which was very important to us. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone. I love it so much I convinced my best friend to buy one and she did!

Sara B on February 16, 2021

CR-V was a good choice, I recommend it :).

I like the smooth running of the vehicle, in terms of fuel consumption. I like the comfort of the roof and the simplicity of the dashboard. This car is very reliable, I've had it for a few years now and it's still running great. I have been using the Honda brand for over 20 years and this car is by far my favourite.

Karen b. on February 16, 2021

Good gas mileage. good ride.

I like everything about it. No problems, no problems

emilia l on February 11, 2021

Dependable and dependable with a reasonable level of comfort

It is a reliable vehicle with solid fuel consumption and reliable operation in all weather conditions.

jayden g on February 10, 2021

The best vehicle choice I've made so far... The Honda CR-V.

I've had newer cars (2015 and 2017) but this is by far the most reliable, has good fuel economy and is quiet to drive. I would recommend it to all my friends and may never see myself in a regular car again. One day I might even buy a newer CR-V! In addition, the leather interior looks impeccable to this day.

Maria G. on February 10, 2021

Reliable and trustworthy.

Very reliable, easy to repair. Hardy no problem at all. As long as you keep up with the maintenance of your car, it will last and be durable. Easy to drive and very comfortable. One of the best cars I've ever owned. I recommend this vehicle because it will last a lifetime.

Juan B. on February 9, 2021

Honda CR-V is the best car I have ever driven.

The 2020 Honda CR-V comes to the party with lots of feathers on the cap. Our contemporaries in the automotive press hold the CR-V in high esteem and we agree with them. That's not to say the CR-V is perfect, but based on our week-long test drive it's pretty close. The 2020 Honda CR-V is the best-selling crossover in the United States and has been for two decades. Reviews of the CR-V are mostly positive, with News & World Report listing it as the best compact SUV for the money of 2020 in the US. We recently spent a week with the 2020 Honda CR-V. We think the CR-V makes a strong case in terms of functionality, fuel economy, driveability and more than its price. We found that out on our test drive. It's a very good car and it drives fast and safely.

Jacqueline D. on February 8, 2021

It's a bit difficult to get used to the parking camera over time, I love it.

I don't like that when you turn off the car, only the door opens. I want all doors to open. Also, I can't charge my phone when the car is off. I like seat warmers. I like being able to see how much oil is left so I know when to change it.

Isabel A. on February 8, 2021

Reliable and safe mid-range SUV.

Reliable and safe mid-range SUV. Spacious interior that accommodates a queen size memory foam mattress. It connects to Bluetooth so I can listen to music through my phone. It also has an AUX-in and USB ports in case you want to connect your device in other ways.

Scott m on February 7, 2021

It is a reliable and comfortable means of transport.

It's very comfortable, plenty of leg room in the back seat. The storage space is quite large and it works well.

petirrojo c on February 5, 2021

Our Honda CR-V has no issues and fits perfectly!

This car is the vehicle of my dreams! I've always wanted a Honda because of the high mileage and few repairs it needs. We bought our used vehicle with 40,000 miles for $20,000 so that was a great deal. Of course, we regularly carry out oil and lubrication work. This requires more money since you have to use synthetics. We've swapped out the tires several times (some of which depended on where we bought them) and swapped out the front and rear brake pads and rear rotors. We've clocked up 70,000 miles in the almost four years we've owned the car. It's a great fit for our family, which is large, and my mother-in-law fits in easily (and has some health issues that may affect her mobility). Apart from the maintenance we had no problems with this car. I will definitely replace this car with another Honda!

Sara C on February 5, 2021

Honda CR-V is the best car ever.

The car's great functionality is great, cute and stylish. Love the nice upgrades it has and also the dashboard and wheel features are great as is the trunk which I fit two car seats and a stroller in. What I like most about the car is the smooth ride with the driving feel.

2013 Honda CR-V; an all-wheel-drive mid-size SUV.

My CR-V has five seats, all leather. It has a spacious trunk and has Bluetooth capabilities. The car has all-wheel drive, so it works great on snow and ice, especially when driving on passes. It also works great off-road if you want to reach lesser-known hikes. The vehicle has front and rear wipers and high and low beam headlights. I've always owned Honda vehicles and they've always been safe and reliable, especially their mid-size SUVs with 4WD and traction control.

Ideal for novice drivers. Exceptional comfort and quality.

The vehicle is very reliable and drives well despite some minor dents and scratches. The car is comfortable and reliable with excellent fuel economy! In addition, the car drives very smoothly and has good handling. It was the first car I learned to drive and I always feel safe and comfortable behind the wheel.

Haylee L. on February 4, 2021

Family car: comfortable and reliable.

The only thing I don't like about my vehicle is that it gets a bit noisy when driving on the freeway. You can really hear it inside. It is very reliable, nothing has failed or broken. It's comfortable, it has a lot of space, especially when I have two seats for my daughter and niece, plus two other passengers, no one feels cramped or cramped.

Cover many kilometers with these cars

Comfort, but the gas tank could do with more

Review of the Honda CR-V SUV 2013.

This car is comfortable for all passengers. It's beautiful and easy to handle. It is a reliable car and has very good fuel consumption. I wish it had a USB port in the back for passengers to use. Heat and air work well. However, when I turn off the heating or fan, air or heat still comes out of the vents.

Maddie o on February 3, 2021

great car! Lots of great features!

That's a great car! I myself have had the vehicle for about 5 years and have had no problems. I love that it has an eco button that saves me gas and a reversing camera. The only thing I wish was better would be the size of the board and some features of the board. Even when watching videos in the car via Bluetooth, the sound and video are not linked. But these are really just small things. I love this car either way!

Sherry p on February 3, 2021

Great valve and handling. I like the best small SUV on the market.

I love my CR-V and haven't had any major problems. It drives well and gets along well with petrol. The heating and air conditioning work very well. It has a lot of space. It also drives very well in the snow. The battery lasted a long time. Easily accommodates 5 people. The windshield wipers broke quickly.

Cris S on February 1, 2021

The Honda CR-V is a great car.

It was one of the most comfortable and reliable cars I have ever owned. It drives quietly, the interior is very well designed and I've never had any major problems with it. We've taken it camping and on road trips and it has enough room for a family of four to ride comfortably.

jon t on January 31, 2021

It was a very reliable car

I like that it was very reliable. I haven't had any major problems since I bought it in 2012. All I had to do was service instead of repairs. Also, it offers a lot of space for me and is comfortable for long-distance rides.

Benefits of the 2013 Honda CR-V.

I love driving my 2013 Honda CR-V. It's a very reliable car and I've never had any maintenance issues. It's just the right size (not too big for an SUV and not too small for a compact). MPG is pretty good on both highways and roads (it peaks at around 31mpg on the highway and around 26-27 on the road).

sue p on January 30, 2021

The way it drives. Durability. Easy to understand functions.

I have no complaints. It's easy to get around places.

Others on January 29, 2021

The Honda CR-V has the perfect vehicle size for everyone.

I love the smooth ride. I also really like the size of the vehicle. It's not a big vehicle, but it doesn't feel particularly cramped either. There is enough space in the trunk to store things conveniently. I enjoy having a backup camera so I can park and maneuver with ease.

kaitlyn on January 29, 2021

Reliable and excellent entry-level car, especially for students.

I don't really have any major complaints other than that I shouldn't have chosen black leather in the southern heat. Otherwise I have no major complaints. I absolutely love the fuel economy performance because it's so amazing and it's still pretty cheap to fill the tank. The cargo area and the folding rear seats give me plenty of room for shopping and anything else I need to transport. And the seats fold down with two levers, which is a breeze. The ride is very smooth and stands up to the wear and tear. Honda has always been a favorite brand for my family and I, and this vehicle was no different.

amy w on January 28, 2021

The positives definitely outweigh the negatives.

Overall, my Honda CR-V was a great all-around vehicle. The size is perfect - I can park in small parallel/regular spaces, but many items fit in the car when I go on vacation or even move. As far as seating goes, there's plenty of leg and elbow room. The rear camera is a feature I couldn't live without and the Bluetooth connectivity feature is used almost every time I'm in the vehicle. There were some software issues with my transmission that resulted in erratic jerks under acceleration and the vehicle lacks starting difficulties under acceleration. However, these negative aspects definitely do not outweigh the positive aspects of this vehicle.

Justin o on January 25, 2021

The most important thing for others to know about my car is that it has good fuel economy and runs well.

I like it when my car is big and has a lot of cargo space. I also like that it has good mileage and runs well in winter. I currently have no complaints or dislikes.

Celsey H on January 25, 2021

Great family car, very spacious and very reliable.

My Honda CR-V is the most reliable car I've ever owned. It is very spacious and can fit all of our belongings except for the 2 car seats for my daughters. My family loves the sunroof and loves all the details of the faceplate and radio. It's a great family car.

kristy p on January 25, 2021

Spacious and comfortable, just the right size.

I love this vehicle as it is very versatile for my purposes. There's plenty of room in the back without having to fold down the rear seats. There is enough space for 4 adults to travel comfortably. I wish there were armrests on both front seats, that's really the only gripe I have. I recommend this car to everyone I know.

Dorcas F. on January 25, 2021

Among other things, Honda is the best car.

My 2013 Honda CR-V is the best car I have ever bought, it never gives me any problems. When it snowed it worked perfectly. The engine doesn't give me bad times. However, I follow all the manufacturer's instructions and everything is still the same as when I bought it.

madison s on January 25, 2021

My vehicle is a sleek black Honda.

I've had a few problems with my car starting and alternator in the past but overall it's a really good car and it's lasted a long time and any problems I've had were a one-off and easily rectified become. I highly recommend this car. I think you will really love it and it will put many miles on it.

Josiah A. on January 24, 2021

Stunning style and design.

The style and design of the product. Cute and functional, it features a great design coupled with formal features with plenty of strength and a focus on the present and the future. Thank you for creating a great product and design with this amazing car and vehicle display.

Debbie G. on January 23, 2021

Great touring vehicle. The roof rack has made traveling a breeze.

The car alarm module on the driver's side has failed. The exchange is very expensive. Despite this, it is reliable and has taken me on a number of longer trips with my grandchildren. Leather seats are best for children. All spilled liquids are simply wiped away. It is easy to clean and drives very well in winter.
