TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the Honda CR-V

Honda CR-V Reliability And Durability: Pros
YearComment
2013 I don't often comment on reliability in these reviews, for two reasons. Most car models cluster near the average. And while a model's reliability can change over time there's no practical way to update these reviews every time it does. (For the latest stats, just click over the to reliability section of this site.) But the CR-V has been so consistently among the most reliable models in the survey that this must be a key factor in decisions to buy one. None of the 50+ owners of the fourth-generation CR-V participating in the survey reported even a single minor repair during 2012. This said, the Toyota RAV4 has been about equally reliable. The Mazda CX-5 has had a decent first year, while the latest Escape hasn't, but with both it's too early to infer how they'll fare in years to come. full 2013 Honda CR-V review
