I bought my 1999 CRV used from a friend a year ago and it hasn't disappointed me yet. It has surprisingly roomy seating and everyone that rides in the backseat mentions this to me. The AWD is great in rainy conditions, I can feel the wheels stablize when I hit a puddle. It handles like a car, gas mileage is fair considering the AWD, but I do wish it had a little more power for the uphill climbs. I'm just under 60,000 miles and no mechanical problems.
The AWD, roomy interior, raised view in traffic
give the passenger an armrest so they'll stop using mine. more powerful engine for hill climbing and accelerating in traffic.
