2004 Honda CR-V EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Overall, my Honda has never died on me. I am a very spirited driver, but there are no excuses for some of the constant repairs being done to my car. I needed a new front axle at 60,000 (living in the NYC metro area, we have those big pot-holes), I have blown about 5 or 6 engine mounts, needed a new transmission at 80,000 miles, needed to replace throttle plate at 15,000 miles, the list goes on, and on. Thank god I used common sense, and bought the extended warranty. It's just a shame the terrible customer service at my local dealer turned me off to Honda, and therefore will probably never buy another Honda again. Was a great car until around the 50,000 mile mark. Then it's all down hill.

Customer Service, Engine Power, Acceleration smoothness, cheap plastic components on interior, should have updated to more modern amenities for its time, no variable intermittent wipers..
