Honda CR-V 2.2 i-DTEC SR 5d (2012/62) - Owner Review

The load space, having a young daughter with a large rear facing car seat means rear seat space and boot space for buggies is a must, this has it in droves.

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Buys with the head rather than heart.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
The only bad thing they say is its expensive but that's the curse of SUVs at the moment, people who have been it are pleased with comfort and room. most people comment on Honda reliability which I wasn't expecting.

Would you buy this car again and why?
I would although the new face list coming out next year will have a 1.6 4wd which will help as the economy of the car isn't great and why I marked it down.

What are you likely to buy next?
That really depends on what life throws at me, another child or two, more dogs might need an MPV :( if things remain the same whilst I and a taxi service I want a safe car easy to get into and out of with lots of room so yes!

Buying experience

5 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Franchised

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£19,500

When did you buy the car?
September 2014

Did you get a good deal and why?
Yes I think so, I got more in part exchange then I was quoted at other garages between 30 and 45% and a little knocked off an already reduced price.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Reliable, 4x4 with large amounts of interior space and a large boot without having to go up to a large 7 seater.

What was the dealer like?
Good, not pushy.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It drives well, the 18 inch wheels don't impact comfort noticeably, the engine has plenty of pull and isn't short on power. great visibility in almost all situations, the large wing mirrors help.

What's it like to park?
I am used to family hatchbacks before getting this car and its easier to park than those, being about 10 cms longer but with reversing camera and front and rear sensors you cant go wrong.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
No, nothing it has been perfect.

What's most practical about your car?
The load space, having a young daughter with a large rear facing car seat means rear seat space and boot space for buggies is a must, this has it in droves.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Being the first care I've had with HID lights I wouldn't want to go back now.
