2001 Honda CR-V Reviews

Very nice vehicle! Very reliable! Have over 200000 miles no problem!
had this car for four years and it was very good to me. the only major work i had to do to it was replace the radiator due to a crack in the tank. one complaint i had was that the transmission always seemed a little weak like it was about to start slipping or give out. overall i would say reliable but not big enough for a family of four.
i am very pleased with my 2001 honda crv ex. i bought it new. has been very good and plan on keeping it for more years to come. hondas are great vehicles.
