Among the most well-rounded SUVs, the CR-V has a five-speed automatic, standard electronic stability control (ESC), and side-curtain airbags. Interior room rivals that of some midsized SUVs. The engine is refined and relatively fuel efficient. Handling is responsive and secure. The ride is composed, but road noise is evident.

What Owners Say

12V power plug

"never worked"

Anonymous, CT (2006 Honda CR-V LX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"front plug has never worked. Rear plug is fine"

Anonymous, TX (2006 Honda CR-V EX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"The 12V plug continues to blow fuses. We took to the Honda dealership, they put another fuse in that blew at first use"

SUSnnah R., OR (2006 Honda CR-V LX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"12V power plug stopped working. Replaced plug itself, but that did not fix the problem. Should have checked - no 12V coming through wires at all. Fuse is good. That means I'll have to tear the dash apart to replace a defective wire. Will probably have to pay Honda hundreds of dollars for this. I'm not happy."

"Rain water leak into front passenger foot well. Brought to Honda could not fix problem but they did crack my windshield and failed to disclose. Brought to body shop that took apart interior also could not find source of leak. I removed interior on my own and front fender leak was caused by failure of sealant used at seem where firewall meets the right front steel inner fender. Re caulked from interior and exterior problem fixed. You tube of honda accord with similar problem provided me with solution. Doesn't seem like common problem but definitely hard to diagnose."
