I love my CRV. Every time I turn my key, I know the car will start. Bought the car at 40000mi, now has 100000mi. Not one problem since I owned it (hope I don't jinx it now). A great value. Typical Honda reliability/fuel economy. Highly recommend w/o hesitation.
Leather Interior, AWD, fuel economy, handling.
The 2001 version exterior looked plain. The 2002 models have addressed this, but still could use more improvements. More powerful engine would be nice.
