This is such a reliable vehicle. I decided to purchase the 2006 to avoid getting stuck with a 2007 (thought the new body design was kinda ugly). I typically put 15-20K miles per year on this vehicle and it has held up wonderfully. I love my CR-V.
The ample cargo space. I can keep stuffing this vehicle with items for long trips and it seems to handle it all.
My only complaint is the swing-open rear hatch door. Rather smartly, Honda switched the CR-V's rear hatch door to a vertical lift door with the latest design of the CR-V. I would've bought the new design, but felt the vehicle's design overall was somewhat ugly.
