56-reg Diesel, Owner for 3 to 5 years

This vehicle has performed much as expected. The mix of economy, space and practicality has been good. The research time that was put in to choosing the vehicle has paid dividends, however newer models do not appeal as much and I'm looking at changing to a different brand, again my research will narrow that down in due course. But for my current vehicle well done Honda.

Meets expectations - recently had to drive in snow/ice conditions and the car performed superbly. not once did the car skid/slip. Overall the car achieves between 43 and 45 mpg in line with honda's claims. I'd like it to be better but wanted a car bigger and better than the vw golf I traded in.

My Honda CR-V has been a pleasure to drive, it has been everything I wished for. It drives well, the four wheel drive works really well. The mileage I get with it being 4W drive is good at nearly 40 to gallon. An all round great vehicle, I would recommend to anyone who likes this type of car.

Does what it should pretty well.Only slightly ponderous handling and a hint of unease with the brakes detracts from my pleasure.One recall (an ECU related issue) and a detached interior mirror detract from the reliabilty so far.Probably 4 or 4.5 stars!

Sticking rear wheel brake cylinders the only problem, not expensive to fix. Fuel usage highish but very reliable and depreciation negligible.

Does everything reasonably well and some things very well so pretty much all things to all people without being outstanding.

Only fault so far is a loose trim fastener in the boot. Expensive spares but good mpg and surprisingly light on tyres.

Never let me down. Costs are high but I expected that for a petrol 4x4. need a 4x4 more than I need to save money.

Only minor repair work has been required. Fuel consumption relatively high but acceptable for type of vehicle.
