The only issue is the size of the petrol tank - a lot of kit for the money. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
The dealership, Browns Honda in Loughton were excellent and follow up from Fish Brothers Honda in Swindon has been fantastic as well - all in all the best vehicle I have ever bought.
A fine car but its success is because drivers love the idea of having a rugged-looking soft roader but not having to live with the realities of one but it has a firm comfy ride and this model burns some money by adding satellite navagation and an auto box with a multi CD player.
This is the second CR-V I have owned, and I find the car I have is a step up from the earlier model. It will be two years old in March and, apart from one service, all I have had to do is top up the screen wash.
I had the previous model for four years and three months. All I had to replace was two front wiper blades and three tyres, and when I traded it in against new car I got £8,300 in the px. The only downside on my current model is caravan noseweight dropping from 75kg to 60kg. I contacted Honda but they could not give me a reason for it.
This apart, I cannot fault it. It's reliable, comfortable - even after towing for 250 miles non stop. The mpg is very good if kept within the speed limit, there is loads of room in the cabin, and also the boot. The 2005 version has had the trailer noseweight lifted to 100kg
Also, my 2003 model does have Honda super deadlocks.
I bought the car from Dixon Honda Horsforth Leeds and was very impressed with the way I was treated, and I would certainly recommend this garage.
I would definitely recommend the CR-V. When I change my car it will be for another CR-V.
My CRV has proven to be very useful and versatile. It has a good engine and drives very much like a car, except for questionable traction when the roads are slippery.
It has been more than adequate to transport my wife, daughter and her fiance, along with four suitcases to various weekend breaks. As a person keen on DIY once again it has been more than adequate for carrying flat packs from the superstores.
Having said that, I have been disappointed with the quality of the interior. The plastic seems to scratch with every slight bump - my golf bag causing most of the scratches in the boot area.
This is something I have not experienced before. How could Honda get the quality of the plastics so wrong?
This model is now approaching three years old and Honda has failed to offer another interior option. I am told the plastic is now more resilient.
Would I buy another one? Maybe - but not without trying out a Rav4 and a Nissan X-Trail.
