Don't buy this SUV

published

Don't buy this car. It has many faults especially with the audio unit. It isn't built for Australian conditions and the audio units over heats also. Honda have given me the run around and won't release the spare part to the Honda Dealer for another 4 months. I thought Honda were an honourable company.

Not a reliable car

published

My 2010 Luxury CRV has been falling apart over the last couple of years. First the starter motor failed, the leather on the armrests are peeling, the doors do not lock with the remote, fuel consumption is terrible at 13.3 L/100KM and the drive shaft needs to be replaced. The CRV is regularly serviced by the same mechanic and he admits that some of my prob;ems are common with CRV's.

Purchased in August 2010 at Honda Dealers for $45,000.00.

Great car

published

Got it new August 2020 done 6000 km in it very happy with it so far very smooth to drive nice and roomy wife loves it more the only thing I don’t like is the daytime running lights they look good but they are bug catchers on country roads the 2.0l engine is pretty good around town and on highways the infotainment system is ok would be better if they put the better one in it but you get what you pay for. I would definitely recommend it

Spacious SUV

published

Got the 2020 Vti-S 2020 model from Honda Essendon. I love the space it has compared to other competitors within its range. Loaded with all the safety features and aesthetically beauty from the inside. The exterior design is not the best which I believe the CX-5 is better. Overall, it's not to bad with the comfort and practicality it provides.

Fantastic customer service experience

published

I recently purchased a Honda CRV 2020 model from Autosports Honda Leichardt. The whole process until the delivery was amazing. I would like to thank Suzy Riszk for her patience and fantastic customer service. Suzy took her time time to answer all the doubts I had about purchasing a Honda car. This is the very first time I’ve dealt with a sales person that’s honest and most of all goes above and beyond for her customers. She’s just amazing!!

Not to forget that Jay also did a fantastic job through the process. Thanks so much guys, we are really grateful.

Break starts making annoying noise after 6 months

published

Bought brand new CRV VTI-s, after 6 months or so, break started making squeaky noise. Took 1 year service to honda and mentioned that, they actually admitted it is a fault and offered to fix for free but they couldn't fix it,
We had to took take car in service 3 times in total for another look and did test drives as well, at the end they said it is not fault, and we are asked to pay to fix it.
I can't believe the brand new car start having this issue already, and really annoying to driving around now.
Not happy and regret to spent over $35000 for faulty car. Will never buy car from Honda.

2019 Honda CRV VTI-LX

published

Owned this car for a few weeks now. The car is flawless. Sufficient power from Petrol 1.5 litre Turbo, even on highway. In and out finish is very nice. Be aware that this car does not have blind spot monitoring. In saying that it has every other driving aid you can think of. Full LED front and rear lights with auto high beam for very dark roads. The massive sun roof that comes standard make the car real nice to drive on a sunny day. I would recommend this car. This vehicle was purchased during the Honda 50th Anniversary for $44k from Suttons Honda Homebush, ask for Vik. Cheers Happy Customer.

My CR-V RD7 shakes badly between 20km/h - 40km/h. When I accelerate to about 80km/h, the shaking goes off. What may be the possible cause?

Broken engine mounts? If you put the car in neutral and rev the engine do you feel the shaking? If yes, engine mounts may be the likely cause. If not then it could be front drive shafts.

Why does my 2015 CRV continue to fail to start even after new battery replacement and continued dealership service assessment that the vehicle is ok but I am the one that keeps getting stuck with a car that fails to start. The vehicle cannot be relied on.
