Traded by 2000 CRV (EX) for a 2006 EX. After the first 2 weeks, and 400 miles, I am pleased with the purchase. Mileage, mostly around town, was about 22 for the first 2 fill ups. Engine response and pickup is far superior to the 2000 model. Only 2 minor complaints so far. The rear window wiper only cleans about 60% of the window and I really miss the "junk drawer" under the passenger seat in the 2000 CRV.
Engine pickup: merging to expressway speeds is far superior to the 2000 model
Put the cargo drawer under the passenger seat back in
