I have had this SUV for almost 9 years and have had no problems what-so-ever! I highly recommend this vehicle for everyday use. The only minor thing I had to replace, besides the usual tires, oil and filters, was the rear-differential fluid (at 100,000 miles) because it made a grinding noise when maneuvering tight turns. Great gas mileage between 23 and 26 city. It handled snow great! It also has child-safety locks for the back doors and windows. I would purchase another CR-V in a heartbeat, but don't particularly like the exterior of the newer models.
Fuel mileage. Interior space. Ground clearance, Full-size spare tire and easy accessability. And most of all, easy maintenance and great reliability!
It only comes in a 4-cylinder, maybe offer it in a V-6. Reduce road noise and rough ride.
