Honda's CR-V is affordable and functional. Rear-seat room and cargo space are also generous. Further, its compact dimensions and responsive handling make driving entertaining. Honda made several notable mid-cycle updates to its popular sport utility for 2015. The CR-V gained an updated front and rear appearance, along with new wheels and various trim bits.

Linda W., WI (2014 Honda CR-V EX-L 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"This is a very noisy car. The noise is a combination of wind and road noise, coupled with the inability of the vehicle to isolate road noise from the cabin. From research on line this is a problem for Hondas in general but a significant issue with this model. Often the road noise is so loud that the radio volume needs to be set very high to hear clearly. I am overall very disappointed in this vehicle would not purchase another Honda, and will likely sell or trade this car due to the noise issue."

Stephen E., PA (2014 Honda CR-V EX-L 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"driving the CR-V on long trips prompted us to purchase the Lincoln MKT as the CR-V has a harsh ride and, due to wind noise, difficult to hear a normal conversation.

"Brakes squeaked when new and Honda replaced rotors and pads on the rear wheels.had to replace pads on rearheels at 35,000 miles.Had to replacerake pads front and rear at 73,000iles. The biggest problem that I had after all the above was Honda wanting to perform services before they were due.another big problem was cost of services. an example was on air filters ,cabin and engine filters.Honda wanted nto charge me $120.00 to replace.I bought the filters for $39.00 and changed them myself in 5 minutes. $81.00 for 5 minutes. I call that gouging."

Doesn't work well, is a terrible pain to manage and will only call by voice the previously programmed. Overall, a very poorly thought through system. When researching various vehicles prior to purchase, including CR reports and video, there was no mention of the infotainment system. My assumption was it was similar to other systems I have used.

"The driver side of the car does not get sufficient heat in the outlet next to the window. It improves slightly when I turn on the recirculation feature. It gets worse when the weather gets colder. I have read that there is a flushing kit Honda has supplied to their dealerships to fix this problem. It removes corrosion from the heater core. This is no longer covered under warranty so I haven't paid to have it fixed. I feel there should have been a recall rather than a service I have to pay for."

"Won't warm up to temperature in cold weather. I know it's a thermostat that opens too soon or stays partially open from experience. Neither Honda or the dealer Schlossmans of Milwaukee will fix it because Honda says on the problem I opened with them that the dealer gets a bad mark for replacing a good part. Two dealers say it is opening and closing so won't replace it. Told them all they and Honda have lost a customer and I will not recommend their vehicles to anyone. Will never buy one again"

"Car takes a long time to warmup"

Anonymous, MA (2014 Honda CR-V EX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"We had low heat coming from the drivers-side vent. The problem appears to have been a partially clogged heater core which restricted the flow of coolant to the driver's side of the heater core, this causes the heat temperature to be lower coming from the driver's side vents than the passenger's side vents. The dealer flushed the system to remove the block and the heat began to work much better."

"If I leave the headlights on automatic, the battery will drain overnight, requiring a jump start. If I listen to the radio with the engine turned off, the battery will discharge to the point it needs a jump start. An engine problem not mentioned in the questions is the valve train actuator sometimes spinning noisily at startup for about 20 seconds when the temperature is below 50 degrees on the first start of the day. Honda knows this is a problem on CR Vs but the dealer refuses to repair unless I leave it over night."

The lights on the dash flickered after my attempt to start the car and the starter would barely click. An auto service came out and checked the battery and the alternator and found no fault. I believe (but have no proof) that the problem stemmed from an attempt to start the engine wherein the key was released before the engine started, and an immediate attempt to start it again"
