Looking for familly smallish SUV and our other option was a RAV-4, the CR-V felt like it had better hip and leg room in the rear. see full Honda CR-V review

The leather front drivers seat and passenger is very comfortable,much more so then my 2002 Honda accord se. The leather is cold in the winter but the heated seats help a lot. see full Honda CR-V review

Rear seats are quite comfortable for passengers and have plenty of legroom. Entry/exit is easy. No hesitation to drive friends to a show / dinner theater /etc. where they have to stay in back an hour or more. see full Honda CR-V review

2008 4dr SUV 166-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed automatic AWD
In typical Japanese Small Car fashion, the front seats have very little thigh support for a 5ft 10inch person. The back support and position can be quite painful over 500 or more miles. This marred the ownership experience see full Honda CR-V review

Seats need another couple of inches of depth to provide anyone over six feet tall with proper thigh support. A little on the firm side after a couple of hours. Could also be improved with better lateral support. Not a deal breaker unless you expect a Volvo type lounger. see full Honda CR-V review

Roomy enough, but materials feel cheap. Bench is very thin and hard on long trip. Good leg room, but overall not as nicely done as the VW Tiguan. see full Honda CR-V review

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2008 Honda CR-V

2008 Honda CR-V Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2008 4dr SUV 166-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed automatic AWD
The 2.4l 166 hp engine is willing and ready to spool up in an instant without complaint even when approaching the red line. The 5 speed transmission is smooth and very refined. This transmission deserves a more capable engine though. see full Honda CR-V review
2008 4dr SUV 166-horsepower 2.4L I4

CVT works very smoothly. Merging onto highway takes a heavy foot to get the revs and speed up but the car responds willingly, although feels slightly stretched and the engine wipes the sweat off its brow when merging completed. see full Honda CR-V review

not real awd: google it for videos, and you will see that awd never kicks in when required. a fake awd. and you cannot lock (like in patriot or rav4 for example). see full Honda CR-V review
2008 4dr SUV 166-horsepower 2.4L I4

The engine though smooth is very underpowered for this vehicle especially when loaded. Its limits are reached easily on the most gradual hills. It has to be wrung out to its limits to provide mediocre thrust. The transmission is flawless though. see full Honda CR-V review
