2013 Honda CR-VRachel Schoenung - San Diego, CA11/03/2015
The Honda CR-V handles itself really well when driving, you don't feel like you're in a huge suv, but you feel the safety-ness of a big suv. It's extremely comfortable, easy to lower the back seats down with a flick of a switch.. And who can beat having a DVD player in the car? I was a little nervous about the leather seats, but surprisingly they never get hot in the summer.
I would not recommend this vehicle for the transmission / torque converter issue. This is my 2nd and 12th year with a CRV. Both of my vehicles had the same issue with the tranny & torque converter. The common AC issue has struck with this vehicle - the internet cites that it's an issue with poorly shielded AC parts which overheat and disintegrate the wiring and parts causing the AC to fail. I am also having an issue with oil consumption - no leaks whatsoever - but it "uses" a quart every 2000 miles. Honda / Mechanics may tell you that this is normal - I disagree. This is the first car I've ever had that I had to check the oil in that didn't have a leak. The locks are 100 % manual and it's wired for electronic. but wait - There's more.......
Comfortable, smooth and handles well. Good on tires and all the instruments are located where you can see everything. Lots of room, many cup holders and cubbies to put things. Cargo space a decent size. Back seat goes down with ease. AWD which is good to have in the mountains. Not bad on gas.
So you’re considering a Honda Accord as your next car. It’s a good choice—the Accord is very highly-regarded in any of its available variants. Plus, it combines good gas mileage with lively performance and plenty of interior space. For those who enjoy the experience of driving, Accords are known for their firm ride, good handling, and responsive steering.
