Wonderful, reliable vehicle, just have had constant problems with the front end since it was purchased. Bought at 70k miles and had to replace rack and pinion and the front end has just been awful after that. The handling is not good and have been through several sets of tires.
Need to give attention to the front end of the truck.
Was thinking of 97-2000 CRV for daughter but bought a 03 mercury marquis instead for safety, size, quiet and get approx 20-21 overall and late 20s on freeway! Seems they can't be beat for reliability either! $4k for 03 with 62k, new tires, battery & little old lady driver (no suprise there huh?)
