2006 Honda CR-V Special Edition 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Agree with others in saying that overall this small SUV (that feels and is pretty roomy) was very dependable and easy to drive. Mileage was typical - 21 - 26 mpg around town. It had enough engine power. Had it less than a year due to being rear ended by a heavy commercial truck that didn't brake, it just hit. CR-V was totaled. Bad thing, yes. Good thing, we lived. Not much you can say after that...Glad to be here. I have friends who own CR-Vs from 2005 through 2009 and they all love their particular year models. One friend has two CR-Vs in the family, a 2008 and 2009.
Easy to get in and out of car. It's a design for those who haul a lot of "stuff" of any kind.
Back seats were not as comfortable as one would expect. It seemed "noisy" to begin with but perhaps I got used to it. The gear shift seemed to block the air conditioner vent for the driver side (on right as you're facing the steering wheel). I noticed that improved in the following design years.
