I bought my CR-V for a couple reasons. Honda's name and reliability, and because I wanted an SUV with decent gas mileage. Well I had my CR-V for 3 years before the Transmission started to show problems. I spent more on maintainence than any other car I have owned. I was very dissapointed when the transmission started having trouble litterally miles after the warranty ran out. Seems to me that if Honda has such a "reliable" vehicle they would offer a better warranty. I will buy American from now on...at least when they break I can afford to fix them or find the parts to fix them myself.
Improve the transmission. add an armrest for the passenger...I mean come on I paid $18K for the car and then you expect me to buy an armrest for my wife at extra cost.
