This Little RV has never let me down. It now has 180,000 miles and still gets 25 MPG. Maintenance costs have been below expectations. Carpets and upholstery are all intact and easy to clean. The body and paint are still all fine. While this in no race car, it's a good daily commuter and carries all the fun stuff that on weekends. My kids find the back seat comfortable. I find the front seats comfortable for trips up to about an hour. Road noise from the rear wheels would be my only complaint.
Reliability and reasonable maintenance cost. Good gas mileage.
Honda has already addressed the need for slightly more power and they have made the passenger compartment quieter in the second and third generation of the CRV.
