2002 Honda CR-V EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Bought certified used @ just over 50k miles counting on legendary Honda reliability. Pleased with majority of vehicle, including tire and brake wear, so on with the bad. As of yesterday, 2nd A/C compressor failure. First at around 55k under certified warranty, second 104,500, no warranty, but Honda is covering parts only. Blower control switch has dead spots, not covered when found under certified period, not worth $ for control panel yet. Intermittent auto up and down driver side window. Paint chipping off hood rapidly. Overall potentially the most expensive to maintain and repair out of 35 vehicles (4 have/had 120 - 210k miles w/out A/C problems) I've owned save for the cert. warranty.

Favorite Features

Higher driving position than passenger car gives good view of the road ahead. Cargo area surprisingly comparable to my 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which loses points for having the spare in the cargo area. Fairly nimble in traffic for a street only SUV.

Suggested Improvements

Variable speed front windshield wipers, reliable A/C compressor, more usefulness to folding table beside drivers seat - underneath essentially wasted, more mid range torque - downshifts quickly on hilly terrain at 55-70, but not at 75 on the same hills when cruise engaged. Paint adherence.
