I absolutely just love my CR-V! I totaled my 2000 CR-V back in April (negligence on the other side). I had 186,000 miles on my vehicle. I immediately started looking for another CR-V. I found a 2005, and a 2003. Went with the 2003, it only had 42k miles on it. I do not care for the new CR-Vs and know I will not buy one of that style in the future. No regulated spare tire, only a donut. No picnic table (c'mon guys, this was what the CR-V was known for when it first came out). It is time to rethink the CR-V features that we CR-V owners have been know to love so much.
Rack on top. Spare tire on the back. Moonroof (especially). Spacious cargo room for camping equipment. Tire well to store tire when bike rack is hooked up.
Make tire well just a little deeper (if the makers ever go back to the old 2005 bodystyle).
