2008 Honda CR-V EX-L

Rating: 3 out of 5
  • Currently 3.0/5.0

The Honda 2008 CR-V may have been one of the best selling automobiles in the SUV category but I can't imagine why. For what it is, a vehicle with a SUV classification, it fails in comparison to other SUVs and the price isn't reasonable for what the consumer receives.

I purchased my Honda new and fully expected to love this vehicle as much as I loved my previous Accords. We bought the CR-V in November. By January we regretted the decision. We had plenty of time to talk about it because we were stranded in several inches of snow. Yes, inches. The car had no traction and couldn't make it up our long, curvy driveway so once we made it home the first night, we stayed there.

Since then, we've had continual problems with the traction. We have a Jetta and an older model Honda so we only use the CR-V when it's absolutely necessary.

On a positive note, the CR-V looks sleek and handles well on major highways. We have plenty of room for luggage in the cargo hold and there's adequate legroom in the backseat.

The teenagers enjoy the M-3 Player. I can't survive without the navigation system but a lot of nicer vehicles have those and many of those vehicles have dependable features too like front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive that can be relied upon during bad weather.

I won't own another CR-V after I get rid of this one. While the car looks great on the outside and does have some nice features, when paying over twenty thousand dollars for a vehicle, I want a few bells and whistles. Most of all, I want to know I'm not stranded when it snows.
