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.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

"Good acceleration. Light and easy steering."

"Excellent"

James H., NL (2011 Honda CR-V)

"Lame driving dynamics. You need to bury the foot in the floor to get any sort of power. The revs build, the noise goes up but the speedometer doesn't budge. The lean is terrible. The MPG at 70 mph is terrible. The vehicle seems to be happy only at 45 mph and not above or below it. The seats are terrible and I get a back-ache every time I drive it."

"Very slow accelerator pedal response (1 second lag in any noticeable torque appearing) is dangerous because I find myself mashing the accelerator pedal earlier and earlier to compensate for slow response when making a turn into cross-traffic from a stopped position.

DAVID H., NJ (2011 Honda CR-V)

"The Transmission is definitely tuned to get good fuel economy which it does quite well. This also hinders performance to the point of being dangerous at times. It is difficult to accelerate rapidly without manually shifting the transmission into a lower gear. I drive extensively in the mountains and to climb the steep roads that I drive on regularly, you must manually shift down into 1st gear both for descending and climbing. The only way the transmission will downshift on its own is if you"

ANDREA P., PA (2011 Honda CR-V)

"The acceleration is poor at highway speeds or pulling out into traffic. When crossing a steap bridge I have to constantly depress the accelerator to barely maintain 60 mph. The ride is jumpy (we have checked tire pressure) and does not "hug the road". A tiring road trip to say the least."

DONNA P., MA (2011 Honda CR-V)

"CR-V drives OK, but I like our Accord better. Guess I would prefer ride/handling of a sedan over most SUVs. The CR-V has developed A LOT of noise over the past 4-5 months that makes it difficulty to carry on a conversation with people in the back seat. We have had it checked by dealership, an independent mechanic and tire shop. We have tried rotating tires again and adjusting the tire pressure.

"Was not aware of the air conditioning issues with this car when bought used. Had the car a few years and air conditioning just failed. We've driven other model cars to over 200,000 miles, and have never had an air conditioner quit. We love the car, but are disappointed with the air conditioning issue, which has plagued Honda for many years, was not fixed in later models. The Honda CR-V is not a quiet ride, by any means. Road noise is very loud, even when tires are swapped out, but we can live w"

"great value for the money car never broken"

ED N., FL (2011 Honda CR-V)

"Vehicle was relatively expensive new and navigation system maps were out-of-date (by approximately 2year from what I can tell based on specific road changes that I can pinpoint on the calendar). Manufacturer wants to continually soak me for more money to purchase updated maps (with no guarantee of up to date accuracy). Insult to this flawed expensive navigation system is that the user interface is not particularly user friendly."
