My mom bought this car used when it was 7 years old and we used it for me to learn how to drive and to have. It was a very reliable car and I loved to have it. It came in handy when all my friends and I wanted to go to the ocean for a weekend and we'd pack my CR-V and fit comfortably. I got a decent trade-in and got a Honda Civic so I had something better on fuel that I would have after college.
I loved the sunroof and the 4WD.
More horsepower and acceleration with better fuel economy. I understand it's a 2003 but having better fuel econ and better acceleration would have made this car a keeper.
