This is a great reliable car, not expecting anything less from a Honda! Purchased car new in 2001 and has been working great with no major maintenance just regular oil changes and service -granted it has only been 4 years, but our previous car which we also got new, within few months transmission went bad and car was never the same afterwards.
CR-V drives like a car, not like a SUV. It's compact design makes it easy to make turns and park anywhere. It's also not too bad on gas either. Lots of cupholders. I love my V!!!
The side-swing open trunk can be cumbersome when parked in tight spaces. Could also use a little more power, but Honda has been listening and added more ponies on the newer models.
