This iteration of the Honda CR-V remained a strong competitor in the small-SUV class. Updates brought more power, while leaving fuel economy unchanged. The CR-V also delivers responsive handling, a steady ride, and a roomy interior. The only downside is pronounced road noise.

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."

Willie W., PA (2010 Honda CR-V EX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"AC Stopped blowing cold intermittently. I was told that this was due to the AC compressor and was a very common issue with my CR-V. Compressor replaced. No further issues since the repair"

Thomas H., OH (2010 Honda CR-V LX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"Replaced compressor and system about 12 months ago. recently the car has been experiencing problems with the air being cold, then moving to warm and moving back to cold again. Mechanic has seen it 3 times. First two worked on replacing valves and refrigerant. last time - needed to replace lines. I refused."

"$2,000.00 plus repair"

Joe B., WI (2010 Honda CR-V LX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"The a/c compressor died on an extremely hot day. Was told this was not unusual for CR-Vs"

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

"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."

"The AC system works fine when the car accelerates, however it does not blue cool air in neutral. This has always been an issue"

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

"AC began blowing hot air about two years ago. Dealer recommended clutch and coil replacement but we couldn't afford the fix at the time. We went without AC for the summer of 2018 and returned to the dealer in Spring 2019 for the fix. However, the fix was much more complex. After replacing clutch and coil, AC continued to blow hot air. Dealer then recommended compressor replacement because they found excessive amounts of charcoal buildup int the receiver/dryer filter. Internal combustion of compressor unit caused contamination, which led to the need to remove and clean all lines as well as replacing the receiver/dryer filter and the the expansion valve behind the dashboard. The fixed the issue after 6 days without use of the car."

"Honda knew about an issue with the A/C compressor but did not fix the problem even though there was a service bulletin."

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

"I've seen this referred to as the "Black Death" of AC failures. Once the AC compressors goes, it must be replaced multiple times to the point that it's more cost efficient to trade in the vehicle. It's a serious issue as the compressor belt is connected to the transmission. While the heat will continue to work in winter, the AC will not blow cold which is uncomfortable and the de-fog function does not work which is uncomfortable and potentially unsafe. Small particles of plastic clog the system and no amount of flushing or replacing the parts fixes it."

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

"A/C stopped working. Mechanics cannot figure out why. Either a sensor is not working to activate the compressor clutch or the clutch itself is bad. A/C is not important where I live and because of other more serious problems with the engine, we gave up trying to determine the cause or incur expense to fix it."

"This car has had an air conditioning problem for about 3 years now. Several mechanics looked at it, "diagnosed" the problem or misdiagnosed it. It's been erratic and frustrating, but I think we're good now. I'm hoping that the last time it was fixed, it was fixed for good, but this summer will tell the story on that."

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

"With air conditioner turned on, heat would come on instead or just room temperature air blowing. This started randomly in late spring, but was constant by summer. I replaced the relay switch, but no go. And I could visually observe that the air conditioner clutch was not always engaging when the air was turned on. So had my private, reasonably priced, excellent auto shop make the repair. That was Spring/Summer 2018 and air conditioning still working fine."

Wind noise

"wind noise or even engine functioning made car conversation very difficult"

J T., CT (2010 Honda CR-V 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"Excellent car motor wise. Gas mileage should be better. Major issue that would prevent us from purchasing same car is the severe road noise. Can't hear radio when driving and communication with back seat passengers is very difficult. Difficult decision when purchasing tires. When you choose winter tires or all weather road noise is increased."

"Road noise is the main problem. This noise is generated by the plastic trim skirting that runs between the front splash guards and the rear splash guards on both sides of the vehicle. These plastic body trim panels amplify the road noise. By tapping"

"Paint and trim fading and peeling from middle area of vehicle (from about where the bottoms of the windows are located) all the way up to the roof of the car. Also, the interior "leather" is tearing in multiple locations within the car, including the sides of the front driver and passenger seats, front middle armrests and door armrests, and other locations on the doors and seats. The problem started within the first three years I owned the vehicle and it continues to get worse over time. The leather interior is tearing in multiple places within the car, even in locations where the driver and passengers rarely come in contact with the leather. Although it cost significantly more to upgrade to leather interior, it is NOT real leather and with the exception of some parts of the seats, the fake leather is almost paper-thin (about the same thickness as a large garbage bag). The problem has yet to be resolved as I have not been able to find anyone locally to repair the seats and cannot afford to have a new paint job to repair the fading and peeling that is occurring on the upper half of the doors and roof. The car was even garage kept for the first 6 years I owned it."
