2007 Honda CR-V
There are 40 user reviews for the EX 2WD 5-Spd AT trim shown below
- Heated Leather seats, XM radio, roomy and stylish
- Arm rests are not long enough
I bought my 2007 CRV in March and I LOVE it!!! Every day I look out it, I say to myself --- "Hummm, I love that car!" I had shopped around for six months before I bought mine. The overall rating of the Honda was much better than he Hyundai, Jeep or Toyota. The Toyota was the closest in ratings but I loved the style of the CRV. I like that the spare tire is not on the back like the RAV4.
I have read other reviews and do not agree with them...I think some people just write untrue reviews to be mean.
I have not had any problem feeling like the car was lagging on steep inclines. As far as the seats being uncomfortable, I drove it to Florida during the summer and had no one complaing. I had 4 kids with me so that should tell you right there that it has plenty of room and comfort. I do feel like the gas mileage could be a little better, but all in all I will live with it. I do turn off the VSA (Vehicle Stability Assistant) every time I drive it. I feel like the VSA is constantly making the RPM's go up and down, which to me wastes gas. So I turn it off except when I will be driving in some rough terrain.
I LOVE MY CR-V!!!!!!!!!!...read morehide

- Very attractive body style, handles very well
- Headrests are VERY uncomfortable, ride is roughter than my previous 2001 CRV
I love everything about the care EXCEPT the uncomfortable headrests and the fact that the ride is rougher I had aticipated. I can deal with the rough ride, but the headrests are UNACCEPTABLE.

- looks nice
- AC takes forever, MPG way below listing, uncomfortable seats
Return because I thought AC was busted, after 2 days. They said the news one just don't blow cold anymore. No, this car just blows

- good fuel economy, comfortable seating, plenty of leg room
- speedometer doesn't have markings for 10, 30, 50, 70 MPH
I wasn't sold on the body style of the past CR-V models, though was impressed by the safety ratings and fuel economy. When Honda redid the body style for the 2007 models that sold me right away that this was the vehicle I was looking for. The few cons are by far outweighed by the pros of this vehicle. It has a enough similarities to the Lexus and BMW small SUV's that I had looked at, without the hefty price tag, to leave me more than content with my choice....read morehide

- good gas mileage, elegant looking..
- blindspot..really have to pay attention.
This is my first car ever and I must say I LOVE IT! This is my baby! I have test drove several SUV but when I got into this car, I knew right there and then that this is the right car for me. This is what I wanted. It feels so good driving it. That's why I dont undestand some people who left negative feedback about it..( e.g. cheap plastic, windnoise, ride was stiff and all other stuff..) geezz people that's what the test drive was for!!! if you did not like it..you shouldn't have bought it in the first place!...read morehide

This is a beautiful looking car. It is very roomy, rides great and is very comfortable. I would definately reccommend this car to someone looking for an affordable, small SUV.

- It is just a HONDA
- Too much plastic, not enough dealer coverage for regular maintenance, need more base options
As an engineer and mother of two athletic kids, I searched for a car with more interior room and I try avoid paying too much for a vehicle. Plus wanted fuel efficient car. I have driven Honda since 1989. We bought our Honda CRV-EX-2007, 2WD in October 2006. It is a good car but could offer more (even at this price). Here is my take on the car after 6-months :
1. Seats are too stiff
2. Too much plastic which produces high static voltage in cold/dry season (constant static shocks, very irritating)
3. Armrest is cheap and not cushioned
4. No light in visors is a cheap design
5. No inside button to open the back door. It is not only a cheap design, it is uncomfortable.
6. STIFF RIDE, WRONG MPG, NOISY RIDES. Fuel economy less than I expected. Gas mileage is 22-23 combination drive (not too great for this much light weight plastic)
7. No variable seat positioning.
8. Lack of console is extremely inconvenient, no immediate storage for the driver (for CDs, keys, garage door opener)
9. No programmable garage door opener on the visor
10. When rainy expect to get wet when you open the trunk door.
11. There is no lighting inside the upper glove compartment.
12. No side lights for back passengers
13. Glad that Honda designed the ugly rear spare tire OUT. Otherwise, I would not have been a buyer.
14. The radio has better reception on some AM/FM channels, BUT LOUSY SOUND SYSTEM, NOT ENOUGH SPEAKERS.
15. More than enough leg room for the back seat passengers...read morehide

- Very good gas mileage!!Great sound from 6 disc player and it looks great
- ABS Brakes make a weird noise
I have owned a total of 5 Honda automobiles, My last car was a 2006 Honda CRV, I loved it but when the new 2007 came out I just had to have it. I could not be happier!! Everyone had to drive a Honda to see the difference in quality and handling, they are in a class of their own.

- Practicality, Versatility, Handling, Sound system, styling
- Obtrusive door pulls, loss of usable cargo space due to styling
I've had this, my second CR-V (1st was 2003) for four months now and, for the most part, I'm thrilled with my purchase. The car handles extremely well, cornering flat and true, with tight, very responsive and sensitive steering and good auto gear rations. It has plenty of pep from its 4-banger, though not enough to snap anyone's head back. The ride, while noticably stiffer than my 2003's is still well within the comfort range. I stopped noticing the difference within a week or two and the added benefit of tight handling more than makes up for the occasional jolt over a speed bump.
My driving is 90% highway and, according to the car's computer, I'm averaging just over 28mpg. The gas tank's a bit larger, I believe, than my 2003; the range is about 400 miles per full tank, sending me fewer times per week to the pump.
The interior is very slick and modern. The hard plastic dash looks absoolutely elegant due to the finely nubbed, textured surface. The conrols are cool and stylish and look really inviting at night, subtlely outlined in airport runway-blue lighting. The seats are comfortable, if a bit short on thigh support and lacking cushion tilt. (Note: I opted for dealer-installed leather. This saved me a bundle in not stepping up to the EX-L when I had no use for heated seats or Nav. At least in my case, the materials and installation were first rate, perfectly matching the car's interior). My only beef with interior comfort is with the stylish but all-but-useless giant, fake-metal door pulls. These terminate in a large, obtrusive disc that protrudes out of the door at the exact spot my knee ends up when I drive with legs splayed (as I often do). I actually have 3 foam rubber mouse pads stashed in the door's hard molded side pocket that I press into service as a cushion between the side of my left knee and the door pull.
The interior configuration is typically versatile for a CR-V. I carry large amounts of musical equipment and find it very easy to configure the interior to cargo-carrying mode. It works just as well for carrying just a couple of very long objects or for transporting passengers, with the reclining and sliding rear seats. fMy only disappointment is that the new styling of the 2007 (which I absolutely love!) inhibits large, boxy objects from fitting as well in the cargo area as they did in my 2003.
As mentioned, I do love the new styling, though I take a star away for the slightly goofy front end and the rear door which, after the BMW-like styling of the sides of the car, looks like an afterthought.
I do have to mention the sound system. Even though I do not have the ultimate EX-L upgrade, this system kicks! My taste runs from Stravinsky to James Brown and it all sounds great on this system. Plenty of db's, abundant but not boomy bass, glassy highs and a solid midrange. The steering wheel-mounted controls are very responsive (you can dump the volume down to zero in just a second or so when you answer your cell phone). I very much like the AUX input, into which I plug my iPod. (It may just be coincidence, but the little indentation in the folding console tray is a perfect fit for my Nano). This is one of the Mode selector's positions so one can shoot from FM to AM to CD to AUX with just a fedw taps on the steering wheel button. Of course, Honda's infamous road noise is a factor here, but only to the point of deadening some of the mids and bass on occasion. The 2007 CR-V is much less road-noisy than the 2003 IMHO.
Through a lot of shopping and some hard bargaining, I managed to pay just under $22k for my CR-V, an incredible value in my opinion....read morehide
