I am a two-time Honda owner. I drove an Accord for more than a decade and when it was time to retire it I decided to downsize to the Civic. Even though my Civic lacked the bells and whistles that my Accord had (sunroof, leather interior, etc.) I thought it was a great car. Unfortunately, I only had the chance to drive it for three months before it was totaled in a HORRIBLE crash. I was not seriously injured in the wreck. For this reason I will be buying another Honda Civic.
As reported in another review, I discovered a drive train vibration when accelerating 20-30 mph, but the Honda Dealer found a service bulletin regarding an axle design issue, and the front axle was replaced at no cost which completely solved the issue. In 20,000 miles, I have had no stalling or hesitation issues as mentioned in another review.
Great car, great price!!
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.
