The 2004 CR-V is another great car in
the Honda line. Build quality is great
and the initial impression of this car
is that should serve me for many years
with little or no complaint from me or
the car. The real-time 4wd was a real
selling point for me. I tried it out
on some wet roads and the car stuck to
the road. All in all, the combination
of fuel-efficiency and reliability of a
civic with a SUV platform was a great
idea. My wife has an 03 forester, both
are great cars, choose the CR-V for
size and finish, the forester for
Real-time 4wd, 6 disc cd changer, flip-
up center console.
None. Don't screw this one up with doo-
dads and huge engines that aren't
needed. If you want a truck, buy a
truck, otherwise leave the CR-V alone.
