When shopping for a vehicle, you want one that doesn’t have many problems, has good gas mileage and has the cargo capacity you need. You could go with a new car, but those are expensive, and you’re basically wasting money because of the depreciation in the first year alone. A new Honda CR-V depreciates at least 11% in the first year and is worth 82.35% of its original price at the end of five years. If you’re looking for a used SUV, here’s why the 2014 Honda CR-V is one of the best used compact SUVs for 2022.

When you think of a used CR-V, you think of comfort

Since Ketchum reported that the average American spent nearly 11 hours per week in their vehicles, finding a vehicle that keeps you comfortable no matter how much time you spend inside it is important. The 2014 CR-V seats five people, and while the LX and EX trim levels have cloth upholstery, the EX-L comes with leather seats.

As a characteristic of most Honda models, all seats are supportive and cushioned. If you’re a tall driver, an upright dash provides plenty of headroom and legroom, and the cabin has 104.1 cubic feet of passenger room.

This 2014 Honda CR-V reliability earned a rating of 4.0 out of 5.0 and has excellent ownership costs according to U.S. News. As for safety, it didn’t receive the IIHS’ Top Safety Pick due to a marginal score on the small-overlap frontal crash score. However, the 2014 Honda CR-V did receive good scores for side-impact, roof strength, head restraint, frontal impact, and seating crash tests.

Safety factors to consider are that while the electronic stability system, backup camera, and airbags come standard, the lane departure warning, forward-collision, and blind-spot warning systems aren’t, which is something to keep in mind when purchasing this vehicle.

What problems did the Honda CR-V have?

Per RepairPal, the most common issue reported is that the air conditioner was blowing warm air when it wasn’t supposed to. The second, third, and fourth 2014 Honda CR-V problems included a groaning noise during turns, hard shifting from first to second gear in an automatic transmission, and warped front brake rotors causing vibration when braking.

How long will a 2014 CR-V last?

As long as you provide your Honda SUV with the maintenance and repairs needed to take care of it, it can last over 200,000 miles and even past 300,000 miles. This means if cared for properly and you drive 12,000 miles each year, it can last 20 years at most, 16 years at the soonest.

Is the 2014 Honda CR-V a good SUV to buy used?

The 2014 Honda CR-V is a good SUV to buy as a used vehicle. It has the safety and reliability that many people look for in a car. It also has the comfort people need, whether for long trips or for trips to the store. It’s a good car for the value and will last a long time if cared for properly.
