    Great car for everyday use.

    published

    Recently acquired this as a second car mostly to commute to work and back. even though it had 280,000km, it was in mint condition. I am a previous Honda owner so I was able to check the common problems and was impressed. The car drives like a dream. Everything about this car was designed for everyday use, Leg room, boot space & even fuel consumption. This also has a picnic table built as the boot floor board for the backpacker out there!. Love this car. As long as you look after the car and service on time, the car will not give any problems.

    Do not buy this car

    published

    SO this needs a lot of work doing to it.
    Tyres are expensive on it, the fuel pump needs replacing and also the breaks, gear box and also spark plugs.
    Does not cope with driving to and from FSH to alkimos everyday.
    Would not recommend this car at all, do not buy it!

    Love them,but you need to find a well maintained model

    published

    Great car,i have a 2004 CR-V which has just clicked on 280,000km.
    No problems.The key is maintenance.The diffs,& gearbox need to be serviced with genuine honda oil only,or you will end up with problems,especially the rear diff as non genuine oil ends up causing shuddering when accelerating.It only costs about $17 for a litre from Honda,so it's not expensive.
    Regular oil changes are also important.
    Great on fuel,averages about 9 litres to 100 on the freeway,& around 11 litres in the city,
    Ensure you buy one with a complete service history,that's the key,& you will have a great car.

    Great first car

    published

    Great performance and very smooth to drive. The interior has ample leg room. Wish the colour scheme was darker. I've had this car for 8 years and haven't had any issues with it yet, just the basic servicing a few times a year. I like that this car looks like a 4wd, nice size, ample boot, good height. No complaints!

    so happy with this car

    published

    This car is so reliable. Still going so well even after all these years. Never had any major problems. My car is great to drive and I hope to have it for a few more years to come. My next car I buy will buy will likely be the same.

    Was glad to get rid of this car

    published

    Bought my 2005 CRV sport auto model 3 years ago as the 2nd owner, it was a good reliable car overall but it did have a few issues before I sold it - ended up spending lots of $$ to fix issues before selling onto the next person. Had to replace the starter motor which set me back $500 and the transmission had to be flushed - when I was driving the engine would shudder, shaking the whole car, which happens if the transmission fluid is old - something I didn't know had to be done, neither did my incompetent mechanic at MIDAS...! the engine was quite loud/not a quiet drive experience. Did well on freeways but used up a lot of petrol - $60 per week I was spending just on petrol. Boot space was its main advantage.

    One of the best cars I've had

    published

    I've only just recently parted with my Honda CRV. It was quite a reliable car while I had it. The only thing that marked it down for me was the rear diff noise that occurred a few times during ownership, twice under warranty. A known fault with this model. I also found it had average fuel economy in comparison to other cars I've owned. On the plus side, I was quite impressed to find the entire time I owned it I never needed to replace the brakes having done over 110,000km. Same can't be said for a few Holden's I've owned. I wouldn't hesitate to buy a Honda in the future based on this experience.

    Loved the 2005 luxury sports model

    published

    I bought this luxury sports 2005 model second hand in 2008 with 50,000km on the clock, it was absolutely perfect.
    Never any issues with anything.
    Sold it in early 2011 because I moved overseas for work, would never have sold it otherwise.
    It kept its value well because we services it.
    But the services were very cheap, so it really was a very good buy.

    Good solid vehicle

    published

    Bought this vehicle because wanted an economical family car. Was the best on the market after testing other brands. Has a good size boot and picnic table has come in useful. Has been good on petrol and has enough power to make driving a pleasure. Interior finish is good and ride height gives good vision while driving.

    Since sold the CR-V and bought a Mitsubishi Outlander and are also very happy with this. Its a bit cheaper to service.
    The CR-V has been a good vehicle thus far and has met all the requirements we were looking for. If you are looking for a reliable, stylish, comfortable, well thought out designed vehicle you could do a lot worse than buying a Honda CR-V.

    Great car if auto is looked after properly

    published

    Bought this car recently 155,000 kms . It had the shudder as mentioned on other reviews, we took it to Honda Lismore and had transmission flushed twice with Honda fluid and problem gone. This needs to be done regularly about 30/40,000 ks apparently. Every thing else with the car is great. Glad I read these reviews as would have thought the problem was with drive shafts or cv joints for sure

    Perfect Car!

    published

    I have never had a problem with this car! It's very roomy, runs well, looks stylish and easy to drive. A bit of a fuel guzzler around town but great on highway driving. Love the interior and the moveable middle console. I feel safe and confident driving this car and would recommend it to anyone!
    Roomy, easy to drive, reliable
    Uses a bit more fuel than I thought it would

    perfect allrounder

    published

    I bought this car three years ago [ its a 2002 model] with 150,000 on the clock, since then I have put a further 35,000 km on it, it gets its regular servicing and I have not even had to change a lightbulb
    it has been taken off road a few times and performed reasonably well - its an ALLroader not an OFFroader, great luggage space, surprisingly good performance for an auto - LOVE IT
    reliability, comfort, touring ability, size
    a bit thirsty around town

    Invest in a Scanguage2. My 02' manual (@230,000kms) gets around 8.5l/100 on the open road, and about 11.0l/100 to work and back. Use good oil, premium 95 fuel, K&N replacement air filter, and have the valve clearances set accurately.

    CR-V RD7 (2002-2006)

    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.
