This version of the Honda CR-V ranked near the top of the small-SUV category during its time. The rear seat is roomy, the interior is flexible, and handling is improved. Simple controls, a steady ride, and a smooth, responsive powertrain are strengths, but the sleek styling has a negative effect on visibility and cargo space.

Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for about 329,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2020 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

What Owners Say

A/C compressor

"AC suddenly died while running in a 122 deg F day! Apparently common for AC to fail on this year model. Had to replace the compressor."

Anonymous, CA (2007 Honda CR-V LX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"Air conditioning failed; rebuilt compressor installed, including warranty. Rebuilt unit failed and was replaced under warranty."

Anonymous, PA (2007 Honda CR-V LX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"The day I drove it off the lot the A/C did not work at all. The salesperson at the dealership assured me the vehicle had gone through a 172-point check before being put on the lot, and then rechecked before I came to get it. I had to go back, wait 3-4 days for the dealership to fix it. This was a great inconvenience not only because I desperately need the card, but also because I had to arrange transportation to home and back to the dealership, which is 15 miles one-way with no public transportation."

Tim H., CA (2007 Honda CR-V EX-L 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"A/C compressor failed soon after one of the airbags was replaced as a recall. There had been a service bulletin issued by Honda relating to A/C compressor failure prior to this date. A/C compressor was occasionally producing a burning smell, however dealer made no attempt to check out compressor during recall work on airbag. The compressor failed shortly after, but was about 400 miles past the service bulletins' stated replacement mileage, so Honda refused to replace it. I had a local shop do the work because Honda dealer wanted substantially more money to replace the compressor."

Robert P., TX (2007 Honda CR-V EX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"When I bought the car with 180K miles, I noted the steering was a bit variably resistive as the wheel was turned into a corner. My presumption was steering pump/belts. Had the steering pump replaced at the used-car dealer (but now I am not sure I should have trusted them to do any good work), but no change. Worried my daughter had an unsafe car, I spend $1700 at the local frame shop to replace much of the front end steering/linkage parts. This just ended up with a little bit of change. Then right when I picked it up from the Frame place, there was an obvious exhaust sound in the engine area that was obvious inside the car upon acceleration. I returned to the frame place right away but they refused to take responsibility for the change. I went to Honda and they said the bolts holding the exhaust manifold to the engine block were frozen and there was a good change they would break, causing more work. So now the car still has the exhaust sound (not obvious from the outside of the card) and a little bit of the steering resistance. I believe this car was mistreated by a previous owner. But it has remained dependable for my 17 yr old daughter."

"The TMPS light kept coming on when I hit rough roads. It would then go off, and then on again even on a smooth road. The sensors in three of the four tires were bad"

Bruce S., OH (2007 Honda CR-V EX-L 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"The TPMS light stays on regardless of tire pressure. To wit, just got new tires from Costco and two blocks away the light went on and stays on to this day. Evidently there are batteries on each valve stem than can go bad. Annoying"

"The TPMS system stopped shortly after purchasing the car. The light is always on even though all the tires are inflated properly and the sensors are all working. Honda was unable to remedy the problem while the car was under warranty"

"The tire pressure sensors have had to be replaced multiple times and we have had to have the whole TPMS system "reset" on three occasions"

"Tire pressure monitor fault light comes on (not indicating a tire pressure problem, but that the monitor is faulty) any time the car drives up an incline and will stay on for several miles before resetting itself. It's been checked out by the dealer and by an independent mechanic but they cannot determine the cause."

Stephen F., CT (2007 Honda CR-V EX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"Indicator light goes on & off randomly for years. When the vehicle was under warranty the I brought it to the dealership on numerous occasions. The dealership was unable to solve the problem. They would also assure us that the vehicle was fine. But we get concerned every time it comes on."

"Anti lock brake modulator failed. Unable to keep system pressurized. $2500 replacment."

Anonymous, (2007 Honda CR-V EX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"Spent over $2500 on multiple repairs because the brake pedal would have a lot of play. First Honda flushed system, 2 weeks later same issue. Then they replaced, 2 calipers all rotors and pads. 2 weeks later same issue. Then they wanted to replace master cylinder for full price. I told to a private mechanic who replace master cyl. 2 weeks later same issue. He replaced the ABS component at part cost no labor charge because of the master cyl. Mistake."
