2005 Honda CR-V Special Edition AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I've had my CRV for over 4 years now, over 100k miles, no problems except for changing the oil, the tires, the brakes and the rear differential fluid, and I drive aggressively. The CRV is fun to drive, looks attractive even though not new, and I don't feel as if I'm being "overconsumptive" even though I'm driving a SUV.
big back seat that sits high, ability to sleep in car if needed, that table in the rear end (that I've never used, but I like showing it off!), fun to drive, looks great 4 yrs old even tho dirty and dinged- I still get compliments- looks better than the current version (IMHO)
Road noise can definitely be improved, lighted visor mirrors, electric seat adjustment (on EX or SE models), ability to plug in ipod or mp3 to stereo, some of the "extras" such as fog lights and mudflaps should be standard.
