Road Test Results

Performance
Acceleration Acceleration Acceleration tests are conducted on a smooth, flat pavement straightaway at the track. Time, speed, and distance measurements are taken with a precise GPS-based device that’s hooked to a data-logging computer.
0 to 60 mph 0 to 60 mph (sec.) The time in seconds that a vehicle takes to reach 60 mph from a standstill with the engine idling.
Transmission Transmission Transmission performance is determined by shifting smoothness, response, shifter action, and clutch actuation for manual transmissions.
Fuel Economy Fuel Economy We perform our own fuel-economy tests, independent of the government's often-quoted EPA figures and the manufacturers' claims. Using a precise fuel-flow measuring device spliced into the fuel line, we run two separate circuits to represent city and highway consumption.
CR's Overall Mileage CR's Overall Mileage CR's overall mileage is a composite of measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course and highway cruising; and CR's 150-mile test trip of mixed driving, if tested. In recent road tests, we've discontinued the 150-mile trip test.
CR's City Mileage CR's City Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course.
CR's Highway Mileage CR's Highway Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed highway cruising.
Annual Fuel Cost Annual Fuel Cost The cost and amount of fuel used in 12,000 miles and is calculated from CR's overall mileage.
Braking Braking The braking rating is a composite of wet and dry stopping distances and pedal feel. Braking distance is from 60 mph, with no wheels locked.
Emergency Handling Emergency Handling Several factors go into the rating, including the avoidance maneuver speed and confidence, as well as how the vehicle behaves when pushed to its limit.
Comfort / Convenience
Ride Ride Our expert judgment of how well the suspension isolates and absorbs road imperfections and how steady it keeps the body on various road surfaces.
Noise Noise Our expert judgment of the vehicle's interior noise level in everyday driving.
Front Seat Comfort Front Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the front seat is for drivers of various heights.
Rear Seat Comfort Rear Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the rear seat is for two passengers to sit across.
Interior Fit and Finish Interior Fit and Finish An expert evaluation of the interior quality and craftsmanship.
Trunk/Cargo Area Trunk/Cargo Area Our rating is based on the amount of luggage or cargo space that a vehicle has in the trunk or cargo area.

Owner Reports

Worse Better
Reliability History Reliability History The reliability charts are based on responses on hundreds of thousands of vehicles from our latest Annual Auto Survey. Consumer Reports subscribers reported on any serious problems they had with their vehicles during the past 12 months that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime, in any of the trouble spots included in the table below. The results are presented relative to the average model that year. Extra weight is given to the more serious areas such as major engine or transmission problems. Based on this data and further analysis, we predict reliability for the latest year. N/A 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.

Owner Satisfaction Owner Satisfaction To learn about satisfaction, CR has collected survey data from our annual survey on more than half a million vehicles. Our subscribers provide great insights into their satisfaction by answering one simple question: If they had it to do all over again, would they definitely buy or lease the same model? In addition, respondents also rate their cars in six categories: driving experience, comfort, value, styling, audio, and climate systems. N/A 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

"Fluid had to be recharged. Worked for the most part but won’t know again until warmer weather"

Kenneth M., MA (2010 Honda CR-V EX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"The clutch that engages the ac compressor was warn out and didn't allow consistent operation of the ac, of course in the stretch of many consecutive 90 degree days. The dealer repairs missed the problem despite there being a manufacturers bulletin on it and required a second visit to get it fixed. It was very expensive also. But it works great now."

Anonymous, MD (2010 Honda CR-V EX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"Burnt out. Had to be replaced."

"Horrible vibrations building up over only a few minutes driving. When we pulled into the service bay, they were sure it was the engine and told me I should have had the car towed. In the end it was just the A/C and didn't hurt the rest of the car. Still unexpected in a Honda so early."

There was also a very expensive repair - wheels had to be re-conditioned due to rust and corrosion on all 4 wheels. Had to also replace all 4 tires with new ones. Was loosing 10-20 lbs of air in a few days due to corrosion. Reconditioning had to be sent to another shop to be done. Saw corrosion build up myself! Both repairs done in last 12 months totally over $1900 for both combined."

Engine rebuild or replacement, cylinder head, head gasket, turbo or supercharger, timing chain or timing belt.

What Owners Say

Cylinder head

"Oil leaking through rings. There is a recall on the rings, but exceeded recall miles"

Ed C., TN (2010 Honda CR-V EX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"burning oil like crazy. Honda has been putting it through consumption testing. Failed, then passed. We're doing it one more time, but now they think I've put too many miles on it. I've already done the catalytic converter, the air conditioning failed at 30 days past warranty and they wanted $1500 to fix it. Not impressed with this vehicle."

Engine rebuild or replacement

"I bought this vehicle used. It developed excess oil consumption due to problem with rings. Required rebuild, replacement or new vehicle. Honda provided extended warranty, VIN-specific. This car was not covered and Honda was vague about why., It may have been because of facility where it was assembled. Dealer was not aware of situation because problem was reported via service bulletin, not recall or special notice. Might not have bought it, but I might have qualified based on time/mileage requirements. Dealer picked up about half the cost. Honda said, sorry, it's out of warranty, too bad."

Anonymous, ME (2010 Honda CR-V LX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"In spite of a recall on the model year relating to excessive oil consumption and even though our CRV consumes more than 4 litres of oil between recommended oil changes Honda refused to honour the recall."

"Honda has factory recall on the 4 cylinder gas engine. I had to take the Honda to a Honda dealer for an oil consumption test. They changed the oil. I drove it for a 1000 miles in 2 weeks and they checked the oil again to see if it used a quart of oil. It did. They kept the Honda and rebuilt the engine as part of the warranty"

"Engine was consuming oil at a high rate. It was determined that an internal piston ring replacement was necessary. This was covered under an extended warranty coverage by a Honda dealer as they were aware this was a problem. Our Honda certified mechanic brought this to our attention and did the research on the extended warranty."

Timing belt or chain

"had to be replaced"

Anonymous, OR (2010 Honda CR-V 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"I initially had the starter replaced. Did not solve issue. Determined it was the VTC Actuator and had to have a new timing chain. Honda knows this issue but does not address or cover any fixes for it"

Lisa H., IL (2010 Honda CR-V 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"Failure likely stemmed (or was accelerated by) the rate of oil consumption. Apparently this is a known issue with Honda engines which I am very dissatisfied with. I would have indicated this in the survey, but there was no item to be selected. I need to set my odometer to know that it is time to top up my oil. I believe the oil is consumed at about 1.2 litres of oil every 1000 km."
