I bought my 2002 CR-V EX 2WD used, in 2007 & I absolutely LOVED it. It ran beautifully, never once had to undergo repairs, got wonderful gas mileage & was just an overall reliable vehicle--the perfect first car! They are cute little SUVs, typically owned by more females. The interior features are eye-catching & unique & for a smaller SUV, they have impressive storage capacity & spacey passenger room. Mine ran beautifully up to the day I was involved in a head-on collision, and even then I found good news--it's a pretty sturdy little car! I am now searching for another '02 CR-V; I won't drive any other vehicle!
The unique set up: dash, emergency break, gear shifter, storage compartments, fold down center table, adjustable/fold down back seats, table in trunk over second spare tire storage, swinging rear door...AND RELIABILITY!
-SRS system needs improvement -seats get uncomfortable during long trips
