This is a great buy. I know a few people who have one and they all enjoy their CR-Vs. It offers midsize SUV space with good fuel economy and AWD. The only problem some people have with it is that it is a tad bit underpowered, but nothing that you would not buy a car over. It also has great Honda quality and reliability

I am a huge fan of Honda cars. I am a designer so I will just give you advice on aesthetics.You need sometime to get used to the looks of the new Honda CRV needs. It definitely has gotten itself the ‘aggressive’ styling like most automotive design trends you see on the road now. It tries to look rugged but it doesn’t because of the way the side and front looks. Afterall, CRV stands for Comfortable Roundabout Vehicle. I would save abit more and get the new Honda Stream instead.

i own both a civic ('07) and a cr-v ('08). nothing to complain about except the stock tires are not so hot. but, in less than 30000 miles that will be a non-issue. up north you will probably want the 4wheel drive (all wheel drive). we get up to 30 mpg, hiway and have not had any trouble in 20000 miles and nine months. i'd say go for it.

i took my Ridgeline into the shop a few weeks ago for repair, they gave me a 2008 CRV to drive, its a nice small suv i guess, it has more body roll the the Ridgeline, much more then you would think just looking at it (i almost flipped it when i had it), they engine... it has good power but i would prefer more but Honda is more for quality the power.bottom line is it is a good car and i would 100% recommend it to anyone
