I bought my CRV brand new and have always driven it very gently. From day 1, I noticed there is significant wind noise and road noise. I didn't think much of it at first, but then other mysterious noises began to show. I can't get the dealer to figure out where a rattling sound is coming from whenever I drive on rough surfaces. Then there is this high pitch whining noise that is very noticeable when the car is going 40-55mph. They say it's a normal sound from the transmission. I don't believe it because it wasn't there for the first 4 years. And now the car averages 16 mpg. I know there are just annoying problems but they really reduce my enjoyment of driving this Honda.
The shape, versatility, front seats, and the solid feel.
