Just traded in my 2003 with 189,800 miles. What a workhorse! Replaced the battery only in three years of ownership. I highly recommend this vehicle as a company car and personal vehicle. Between work and my 7 year- old twins I could not ask for a more practicle vehicle. I'm 200 mi. in on the 2006 and like the volume controls on the steering wheel and the addition of side curtain airbags.
Design. If you have small kids the design of this car vs. the competitors is unmatched. Characteristics of a mini-van in a small SUV. I looked at a few competitors this time and will stay with the CRV. Volume controls on the steering wheel and the addition of side curtain airbags. Resale value!!!!
Ability to fold down seats without reaching into the car so far. I would prefer better rear cupholders. Love this car.
