1997 Honda CR-V 4dr SUV AWD
I absolutely love my CR-V! I have had it for 4 years and put almost 100K on it with only changing the tires. Zero mechanical problems and great gas mileage. I am getting rid of mine only because it lacks power and I live in the mountains...it is great on flat ground but it is a little challenged going up steep hills; it makes a lot of noise but little acceleration. AWD is great in the snow/ice!! This is a perfect entry level SUV for someone who wants something bigger than a car but doesn't need a lot of power (small engine gets much better gas mileage :)
Great gas mileage, fantastic for everyday driving around town, fold down middle console, extremely low maintenance, picnic table has come in handy.
According to anyone who has ridden in my backseat- not so comfortable, seats are too upright. Has some issues with power...does not do well going up to the mountains, I lose about 10 mph going uphill.
