HONDA CR-V Used Car Review

Honda entered the compact-4WD segment early with the 1997 CR-V that was based on the platform of the Japanese brand's famous Civic small car. It's been a hit with buyers ever since. Early signature touches were a tailgate-mounted spare wheel and a folding picnic table inside, though both have since disappeared. The Honda CR-V had always been a five-door, five-seater vehicle until the latest, fifth-generation version introduced in 2017.

Pros

Cons

  • Cabin space and versatility
  • Generally smart interior presentation since 2012
  • Fuel economy of front-wheel-drive variants
  • New 1.5-litre turbo engine blends performance and efficiency
  • Key driver aids available only on higher grades
  • Older, non-turbo petrol engines not the punchiest
  • Not designed for serious off-roading
  • No longer a diesel engine option

Servicing

SIMILAR MODELS TO HONDA CR-V

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: HONDA CR-V (2012 TO 2017)

CR-Vs had an optional collision mitigation system that could apply the brakes automatically if the car thought it was about to be involved in a crash.

The problem was that, sometimes, the Honda confused some inanimate roadside objects as things that it was about to collide with.

If that happened, the car would apply its own brakes, much to the surprise of the driver who, unlike the car, wasn't convinced that the wheelie bin on the footpath was about to jump out at them. Honda issued a recall to fix this problem.

The petrol engine works especially hard since it's a bit underpowered, so make sure the oil on the dipstick is clean and not black and thick. Skipped oil changes will kill the engine.

Check under the car for damage. The CR-V might have offered all-wheel-drive, but it was no off-roader, so make sure it hasn't been used as one.
