I have less than 53,000 miles on my 2003 CR-V and have spent over $4,500 on it in the past 8 months. New AC, new struts, new ABS brakes, new emissions controller, new SRS controller and more. And of course, all this started happening very shortly after my warranty expired.
Reliability needs drastic improvements. Parts need to last much more than 50,000 miles. MPG needs improvement. Increase leg room.
