What I've enjoyed most has been this vehicle's "gameness." Last winter we had 3 separate storms of over 1' of snow apiece. Husband's pickup got stuck, but my CR-V just chugged on through. Short wheelbase means it will turn on a dime. Not sure about the rear differential. I'm starting to hear weird noises at 66K miles. Still, I'd buy it again, although I think I'd go with a RAV-4 now rather than the redesigned CR-V. The new Honda is smaller, and doesn't have the table.
Table. Full fold-down front seats. AWD. Fold-down table between front seats for easy access to rear. Loads of storage.
Honda can do better than the lousy Dueler tires that came standard. I got only 22K miles. Goodyear replacements much better. Road noise is my biggest issue.
