Fun for 7 years

2001 Honda CR-V SE AWD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
CR-V's are fun, comfortable, workhorses of a car-SUV-Offroad vehicle. Very, very low maintenance costs - less than $800 in repairs in 120,000 miles plus being towed 50,000 too. Great gas mileage - 28-30 mpg when on the highway and 25 in town. Good comfort, easy storage, easy to maintain, easy to cleanup and easy on the pocket book too. Only one complete set of tires plus two for front due to towing. And it is still worth $7,000 after paying $20,000 for it 7 years ago - can't beat that! We have used only synthetic oil and change it every 7500 miles - again real simple and inexpensive. Could be a good college car for a guy or gal. And Honda has a great rep too!
Light weight, easy handling, low cost to drive, great gas mileage and great visibility too.
Better front seat comfort, longer seat belt tiedowns on back seat, stronger plastic cover on back door.
