2004 Honda CR-V LX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
The vehicle has been all that I expected and more. I am not one of the morons who buy a car thinking that I will never have a problem. The few issues that I had were either diagnosed as normal or fixed under the warranty. The CR-V is a pleasure to own and drive. It handles well and is good on gas. I am 6'-3" and fit in the car well. The interior is well designed (except the silly gear shift lever) and comfortable. The sound system is great. The sun roof is a great feature, never a leak. The fold down tray between the front seats is very handy. There is great small item storage. Mechanically, it is a solid car. Take care of it and it will run and run and ...
Utility - this vehicle does many things well. It holds a five person family with only a little tightness in back seat. With the back seats down, it has a tremendous cargo capacity. With the optional bike rack the dealer installed, it is great getting to and from rides. It is sharp and fun!
Make the next generation more like the 2004-2005 genre. Stay away from the pretty look of the 2007.
