The CR-V cabin and body are roomy without being too big--a great vehicle size for a small family. It gets excellent gas mileage, and rides smoothly. Like my previous Honda, it is reliable and requires virtually no work beyond routine maintenance. I was slightly disappointed in the cargo space. I could slide a stroller very easily into the trunk of my Civic, and I expected at least that much depth in the CR-V; however, I have to put the stroller in sideways, which is a little inconvenient when wrangling a toddler because I can't do it with one hand like I could in my sedan. It does have a blindspot that took some getting used to.
Very Happy Driving this Car!
2014 Honda CR-VS C - Alexandria, VA12/21/2017
I previously owned a 2002 CR-V (which I was also very happy driving), and this vehicle replaced it. The 2014 gets great fuel mileage - around 25.6 MPG on average for me - I'm happy for that! With just 4 cylinders, it is still peppy enough to handle on-ramps to interstates with ease. I haul musical instruments, music and equipment to gigs and rehearsals and love that the back seats fold down with the easy pull of a lever from the "trunk." The front console also works well for me. My purse fits in the compartment next to me - within easy reach. And I like having the Bluetooth capability for phone calls and listening to music. And I get compliments on its appearance. It is a very comfortable car all around!
There are only a few cars I would buy with 100K miles
2010 Honda CR-VMichael - Midlothian, VA01/20/2015
This is a solid, reliable, well engineered, fully featured car. Even at 5 years old and 102K it rides like a new car. The interior is spacious and comfortable. The model we purchased has all the amenities one expects in a modern car and, being a Honda, everything work.
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.
