Great car for the money

Vehicle: 1997 Honda CR-V 4dr SUV AWD

I got this car in 2010 with about 135k on it and drove it for 4 years and added about 30k miles. Overall, it was a great car. Lack of power is my main complaint - you had to floor it to get up a hill or pass someone, and it sometimes took the transmission forever to shift. The car couldn't maintain its speed on steep hills at all. My 2011 CR-V has eliminated these problems. I also didn't get as good of gas mileage as one would expect, but it is an SUV after all. Noisy ride. Several electrical problems including faulty power windows and locks - we finally traded it in because the car often wouldn't start and we believed it to be electrical. Nevertheless, I miss it!
