2006 Honda CR-V Special Edition 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I have had this car for exactly 3 years and 69000 miles. It's used for around town and many extended rides of up to 3 to 6 hours each way (the distance to our daughters' colleges). No problems. Handling surprisingly good, better than RX300 we had. Interior is huge, cargo space deceptively large. Perfect back for Golden Retrievers. Fabulous visibility. Very good in bad weather. However, road noise becomes tiresome after an hour. Sound system is just adequate. And my 57 yr old rear end gets sore on long rides (I'm 5'8" and 143lb). If you're going to spend lots of time on commutes or long drives, treat yourself to something more luxo. But for around town and near, it can't be beat.
Interior space, reliability, handling, mileage. Feels like a 6, not a 4 cylinder.
Honda paint. Annoying chips. Road and tire noise as well as uncomfortable seating on long trips. But it's not a luxury SUV, so it is what it is.
