Honda CR-V Review

History of the model

Honda CR-V

2012 Honda CR-V

4/97 performance of the model: SUV 5-door, 2.0-liter gasoline engine with 128 hp (94 kw), ABS and two airbags as standard

3/99 revised model, engine power is increased to 147 hp (108 kw)

2/02 of paradigm shift. new 2.0 liter engine with 150 hp, side air bags as standard

11/04 model improvements, a new 2.2-liter common-rail diesel with 140 hp (103 kw)

In this model, see Honda Lifestyle SUV, rather than SUVs. The second generation CR-V is better in all respects, but the patterns produced 2003-2004 give relatively more defects compared to the older version.

In 1997, Honda joined with a model for gaining strength SUV fashion, appeared CR-V – city car with five doors, including automatic transmission is the movement of the wheel. To send and driving power to the rear wheels, the front must play through once or twice – this system works for 4×4 CR-V. The first generation leaves mixed feelings – Chassis settings are like a smooth ride, but the bike could have been more nimble.

The second generation is much better – the chassis is more harmonious interior – a nice, more is the passenger compartment. In the newer models in the range have strong diesel. The new model is much more in line with European automotive tastes.

Pros: + development of normal quality, good spatial relationships, powerful heating

Cons: – weak feasibility of difficult terrain, high costs

Comments from owners of Honda CR-V

2009 Honda CR-V

Hello! At the risk of annoying some of you to repeat something said here, I would like to write something like this for a show car, which would be useful to people like me who are not very car “literate” and who would like to learn.

I own a Honda CR-V gene. 1.1 with the oldest of tsrv 2.0 liter / 128 hp / 4 months.

First I’ll start from the pelvis country is contextual Forum – 4×4-it – and here I can repeat something that most know but I will try to digest it.

In Honda CR-V – talk about Real Time AVD that under normal driving conditions work passing torque to the front wheels, while rotating (spinning) is transmitted lower torque and rear (10% + -5%).

How it works:

System, unlike a permanent 4×4 vehicles will roam. differential and transfer box (razdatka), through gimbal that rotates continuously in motion passed RWD for a given factor.

How does the system know when to turn – a purely mechanical. As I wrote gimbal rotates as a small non stop before entering the rear diferntsial is interrupted by a visco clutch filled with special oil for such differentials, which at higher temperature and poured thicken very quickly. To not thicken in normal conditions, and when necessary, use two pumps that rotate at a speed proportional to the wheels, one of which is tied to the front and one for the rear axle and continuous movement during the circulating oil. When the front (driving) wheels roll pump connected to the front axle creates greater pressure can not be unloaded from the pump to the rear wheels and oil hardens increasing temperature and connecting smoothly to the rear differential gimbal. When normalizing and balancing the speed of the pumps fluid again becomes liquid disconnect the rear axle. Can overheat and get a permanent cure – in theory NOT a thermo valve causing an intermittent process and liquefaction.

Is it dangerous to turn at a higher speed. In my opinion – NO torque to the rear axle is too small to obtain instability due to lack of intl. differential., feels rather increase the stability of the car.

Personal experience:

Upon entering the large pool of 90 km / h, for a second I felt a loss of control of the car that when the system is stabilized and disappeared very nice.

By road – car has decent ground clearance and is doing very well in urban and rural areas, while snow cover, ice and mud to keep cool (est. careful driving). You do not have to feel the negative impact of the external environment to prevvklyuchish bridge or block average diff. everything is automatic. The disadvantage is that when you drive in bad conditions take turns spinning – incl. 4×4 – off. 4×4 – spinning.

Personal experience:

2011 Honda CR-V

15-20 cm of snow ice rough terrain in the city to build no problem – several 4×2 vehicles were stranded.
Countryside snow drifts 20 to 40 cm in 1 km. again, no problem.
Icing on the way – easier starting and maneuvering.

For the rest, in short:

Overall one of the strongest cars of this class to defects and maintenance. Noisy and not very stable at high speeds. Parts are not expensive – prices would later write.

The engine is a bit clumsy body, but bearable especially used to.
Brakes – well-functioning ABS, generally longer stopping distances, but is called.

Really smooth ride for such a car and small holes and bumps are not felt as much.

Mnoogo maneuverable plus is climbing high curbs.
The hardest closed rear window can bring bottle. problems with the rear wiper.

A spacious interior, but ugly interiors.
Air conditioning is a great, quick trigger, and the rapid heating at operating temperature

Consumption outside the city: 9-10 in the city :13-14

Very good family car – a town trips, and light dirt roads at any time will take you everywhere. Easy to maintain and no surprises.

For off road – no way is this suspension and almost no options for goods.

Maybe I missed something, but I may have messed something – sheet therm. in either case I apologize.

Very good machine my uncle makes 2.2 I-CTDI 2003 unique but I think a lot of people and this engine is better than the two-liter v-tec. A matter of taste and preferences ..
