Bought my 2000 Honda as a second car so
I would not tear up my Eclipse...found
myself not even wanting to drive my
other car. As a matter of fact I have
only started my Eclipse up once since I
bought my Honda to make sure it would
start.. Honda has spoiled me.. wish I
had bought the CRV first...am thinking
of trading both for a brand new CRV.
My favorite feature would be the
space. Totally swept away with this
Too soon to tell about durability, but I
have Great Expectations. Overall, I'm
very happy, but there are a few
ergonomic glitches that need work.
The dash mount shift lever is too
easily confused with the wiper lever,
steering wheel is too stiff and heavy
for one-hand steering, and the OEM
tires are very poorly rated at tire racks
website. ABS not avail on LX.
Great view of the world, excellent
seating position. Compared to my
1990 pickup truck, the auto door
locks, lights, CD, mirror adj, etc
Needs ABS, better OEM tires, shift
lever re-design, more seat height
adjustment, and sunvisors that wont
block so much of the view.

2003 Honda CR-V EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
Love the inventiveness of the interior
design of my 1999 Honda CR-V. Feels
very roomy, feels bigger and taller
than actual, but very nimble and safe
all the same.
If you use any of the suggestions
please send me a new CR-V as payment!
The 127-hp engine is great with almost
no flat spots like my old Acura had.
Column shifter allows walk-thru space
from front seats. Collapsable tray and
"cooler" in tire-well should be 4"
deep, square,and use a heavy-duty,
insulated, zippable, removable nylon
cooler. Move shifter to top of dash
near right hand. Hp on '05 models: 220,
180,140 (EX, LX, basic).
