Reliability and Durability of the Honda CR-V: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2012 4dr SUV 185-horsepower 2.4L I4

We have had zero problems with this vehicle. Most vehicles I've had in the past required one more return trips when new.
2010 4dr SUV 180-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
With one exception, every Honda that myself and my family have owned has been bulletproof--follow the maintenance and you can expect years of reliable service.
2009 4dr SUV 166-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
Likelly to be outstanding.
2008 4dr SUV 166-horsepower 2.4L I4

For the time that we have had the vehicle, we have had no problems and we know others with the same type of vehicle and they have had no problems either.

Reliability & durability are the top two things you look at in buying a new vehicle
2008 4dr SUV 166-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed automatic AWD
In 4 years of ownership, we\'ve never had an issue with reliability. I am a cautious person, but at no time did I ever suspect that this vehicle would leave me in the lurch. I give it a full 5 stars for reliability.
2007 4dr SUV 166-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
Lives up to Honda reputation.
2007 4dr SUV 166-horsepower 2.4L I4

I bought an extended 100k warranty, but like my previous Honda, I am pretty sure I will not get to use the extended warranty once again!

Air conditioner compressor blew up at 76,000 miles, a $1200 repair after discounts(they wanted $2500). I rebuilt the front brake caliper at 86000 miles.
