Honda has rounded out the squared edges of the CR-V over the years. I didn’t like the older models, as they were too boxy looking. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw this one. It now has softer, rounded edges, some nice tinting touches, and pretty attractive wheels. I actually caught someone checking the car out while I was sitting in traffic! Honda’s decision to remove the spare tire on the back of the vehicle was genius, as it improved the styling ten-fold.
For a car that’s under $30k, and for the 5-star safety ratings on everything BUT rollover (4 stars), this car is a really, really good deal. It’s nice to look at. Fun to drive. It has a navigation system, XM® Satellite Radio, cruise control, back-up assist camera, 6-CD changer, single CD hidden behind the navigation system screen, leather interior, heated seats, power moon-roof, safety everything, AND it’s easy on the pocketbook. It’s a no brainer – a great value for a great vehicle!
I Heart the CR-V
I really loved this vehicle! It was fun to drive, a pleasure to look at, easy to park, and zippy! I keep coming back to the word “fun” to describe the CR-V. It was fun! Fun to look at. Fun to be in. Apparently it’s rather fun to take a nap in the back of (as my teammate did) too! And after driving some real gas guzzling cars on vacations and trips, it would be almost fun to take to the gas station!
I felt really safe while driving it, and outside of a Volvo, that’s pretty hard for me to say. But Hondas have always been really safe and reliable in my book, and the CR-V is no different.
Would I buy one? Heck yes! Would I recommend one to a family or friend? I already have!

By Danny Chang
” I pushed the CR-V a bit through some curves on small suburban roads around Silicon Valley and it handled just fine. All in all, the CR-V handles decently and has sufficient power to get around town.”
