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.

"As previously reported this model year CRV as an entrodanary amount of windshield noise along the top of the windshield mounting. It may be from the "moon roof" as well but the top of the windshield is noisy; no air seems to be getting in. I think it is a design problem that my dealer, SCHOMP HONDA in Highlands Ranch, CO. , has told me a new design is being used for the 2017 CRV has "fixed it." I have not driven a 2017 CRV so do not know if he is just blowing smoke. Anyhow, when my lease expires"

"The 2015 Honda CRV is a terrible car! It lunges unexpectedly while driving and after putting it into park. I was scared to drive it in the winter because I never felt fully in control. I was afraid it would lunge and hit the car in front of me after I parked! The braking system makes very strange clunking noises when brakes are applied. The car also has a terrible inconsistent vibration while idling. Sometimes it's fine but sometimes it is so bad it shakes and makes me feel nauseous. One morning the car was making really horrible noises which sounded like the transmission or U-joint was falling out, especially when I braked. I was unable to drive it so I had to have it towed to the dealership for repair. A service bulletin had been issued for repairs but the Honda dealership did not let me know even though I had taken my car to them previously with all my concerns! Lucky for me, it was still under warranty. They checked it out completely and did the work suggested in the bulletin. The service which was done changed the mileage for the worse. I was required to sign paperwork prior to the work being done saying I was OK with the reduced mileage. I am able to drive it and some of the problems seem much better but I don't really trust that it is reliable. The brakes still clunk sometimes but not as badly. I plan to change to a Subaru or Toyota as soon as my lease is up. Honda corporation was NOT helpful in any way with my concerns and while the car was being serviced (it took a week)! This vehicle had great reviews from everyone when I leased it. Now there are thousands of reviews online which corroborate these problems. Some drivers report a big improvement after the service was done and others do not. It made my car better than it was. It's a shame because my previous Honda (2012 CRV) was a dream to drive and I loved it!"

"Idle became rougher and rougher. Drove to dealer for analysis. A reflash seemed to take care of 80% of the rough idle problem. Soon afterward the problem returned, rough idle. It again grew worse and taken to dealer. Again computer was reflashed for a fix. Finally car was just about undriveable. Had it towed to dealer and parked overnight. Next day I received a letter in mail detailing a recall for my year/model. Called dealer to inform them. They reflashed again with recall update and that seemed to take care of 95% of the idle problem, which still persists today."

"The CR-V had an incident once where it failed to start. It happened when the car had only been off for about 20 minutes and was operating normally prior to being shut off. The starter made a clicking noise (starter solenoid I suppose) and the dashboard lights all flashed on and off repeatedly when the starter button was pressed. The engine would not turn over. It felt like what would happen if the battery was almost dead. There were no other symptoms of a dead battery. The lights all worked and were very bright. I tried boosting it, but it made no difference. I left it over night. The next morning it was the same. I had it towed to the dealer that morning. They off loaded it from the tow truck and the dealer tried it and it started right up! The dealer spent an hour of my money looking it over and could not replicate the failure or find anything wrong. Very odd I thought, so out of curiosity I googled 2015 CRV won't start and I found a reasonable sized list of people who have had the same experience. Sometime their dealer sold them a new battery that they probably did not need, but most often the vehicle magically fixed itself and the dealer admitted that they had no idea why it failed. Of course, I do not know for sure if this is a computer glitch but it sure feels like it to me."

"Bought new 2015 in Aug 2016. In Aug 2019, reported problem that after engine warmed up from cold start, car would lug when shifted to reverse; or, it would shudder and engine would shut down. Honda is replacing the CVT tranny on their dime. Since then I've discovered that most new vehicles post 2014 have CVT transmissions that often have significant problems."

What Owners Say

Doors or sliding doors

"When the vehicle is heat soaked due to warm weather, the hatch door takes unusual high force to close (snubbers resisting, I believe). Honda can never find the problem because, i believe, they don't see the necessary temps in the garage"

"It steers back in lane only when the rubbers are on the line - that scares the drivers. Besides, it only works when I'm driving in the center lanes, it seemed to have difficulty recognizing shoulders."

"When I use the brake to slow the car rather than allowing the system to slow the and push The button to resume speed, there is significant lag time. Speed can drop as much as 20 mph before the system kicks in. This is a safety hazard. Cars behind me swerve into the right lane to pass or follow inches behind me. If I use the gas pedal to move more quickly, the whole procedure begins again when I release the gas pedal unless the car is going down hill and picking up speed on its own."

"After coming back from Pittsburgh, my idiot light came on to say check fuel cap. I took my car to Princeton Honda and they replaced he fuel cap. However, ever since then my car while driving will make a hooting noise, took the car back twice, and they say it is the sensors in the fuel tank. Never did this before having the fuel cap replaced. Still hate the hooting noise and no one seems to be able to correct it. I was told to learn to life with it"

Engine Major

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

What Owners Say

Cylinder head

"Engine started misfiring in multiple cylinders while driving at highway speed. First dealer trip did not resolve. Honda later said to replace fuel injectors & cylinder head. Upon removing cylinder head, significant carbon buildup and bent valves were found. The former was a side effect of the direct injection setup. Manufacturer's extended warranty originally balked at covering $5,000 repair even though all maintenance requirements had been followed and Top Tier gas had been used almost exclusively. Warranty did eventually cover upon appeal to executive office. Cylinder head and all fuel injectors were replaced. Not driving super aggressively may have contributed to carbon buildup."
