Let us catch up? Want to have a quick assessment of how my steering, fuel efficiency, suspension is performing (compared to another similar car)

Sure we can.I've been wanting to do the same to see how my car is compared to similarly aged CRV's. My car figures around 7km/ltr (maybe because its an automatic). Steering is absolutely fine. Goes without saying that the CRV suspension isn't exactly tough like the Innova or the fortuner but is good enough for city and highway usage.

My biggest problem is that my seats are ripping everywhere. Looking to get it upholstered.

Hello Guys,
I am planning to buy a new Honda CR-V 2.4 AT. The running of my car is not much, my superb has just done 29K kms in 5 years, just looking to buy an SUV for regular Konkan trips and usual city runs. Working in the oil field the car would be idle for half of the year as my wife does not drives.

Would like some input from you guys, especially Jaggu if you can please, as there not many ownership reviews on the forums here.

Thanks in advance guys.

HI All,

Have shortlisted a 2004 honda crv 2.0 AT. Odo reading is 95k with service record. However, at time of test drive, I felt the power delivery to be sluggish from stand still, after 20kmph it went smooth. I am not convinced that an AT with 2.0 has this much sluggish approach from stand still.

Can you please throw some light on this or is it normal for crv to have sluggish approach from stand still.

Thanks in advance.

2 liter is under powered but it cannot be that sluggish also, why don't you get it checked at an authorised honda workshop before you take a call? That would be the best option.

Hi,

Thanks for the input, I contacted the ASC who serviced the car regularly and as per them it i because of AT system that you get a bit sluggishness in beginning. I have driven many cars and all of them were manual. This is the first time I drove an AT, I may be wrong here however just wanted to get your opinion, when compared to manual does AT vehicle are slow to move from standstill.

Apart from that is there any other specific thing to look forward before buying an AT CRV 2.0 which is more than 14 years old.

Thanks in advance.

Do a complete check without fail, the reason being the parts are costly and most often unavailable, has to be ordered from Japan. So a thorough check of mechanicals including suspension, brakes and drive train, electrical, other stuff like ORVM is needed.

Since it is 14 year old car, i would definitely get a detailed check done, however juicy the deal is.

Thaks Jaggu, this was prior to buying the Honda CR-V, which I eventually bought in Aug 2016 a 2.4L AWD AT. Have been using it since then for regular outdoor trips. Very happy with the space and performance so far.
