Honda CR-V 2.2i-DTEC and Bailey

Clive Brookes reviewed on 11-05-2020 a Honda CR-V 2.2i-DTEC (110 Kw/150 bhp year: october 2010 - october 2012) and a Bailey Pursuit 560-5 of (laden) 1429 kg.

I have a family of four so there is a lot of kit to be packed, I always pack sensibly with weight distribution, But initially had difficulty with stability, this was a real shock when you hear all the reviews on what a good tow car the CRV is. However, I did some in depth research and Japanese designer like a softer suspension and not CRV all users will have a family of four so the CRV or any other car would cope. But there was a solution and it was quite cheap, spring assists. These rubber doughnuts cost £60 fitted and it completely transformed the car from poor to excellent. I would now recommend the car in terms of towing, but reliability has proven a bit of an issue. In short the CRV is not a reliable as other Honda's which are more simple bullet proof petrol models.
