Probably Not Again

2004 Honda CR-V EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this vehicle new in Nov. 2003. I now have 98,000 miles on the car. At 97,000 miles the entire A/C compressor, clutch and coils blew. After fighting with Honda they ended up paying $600 or the $1500 price tag to replace the A/C. The cars fit and finish are sub par for a Japanese car. Squeak and rattles abound. The exterior paint is easily scratched. Honda has known about the faulty A/C problems with the CR-V but refuses to extend the warranty on them. I owned 2 Subaru's before this car and will go back to Subaru once this car dies for good. Honda gets high marks in most of these postings but most of the postings are from people who just bought their cars.
Tumble forward rear seats make interior very functional - which is why I bought the car. Side moldings prevent door dings.
More reliable A/C's. Better build quality. Too many squeaks and rattles. Better dealership experience. Better paint that doesn't scratch so easily. Better factory tires. My first set were shot at 40,000 miles. Better customer service.
