This is my third Honda product. Previously Hondas were, a '90 Accord LX and a '95 Accord wagon. The wagon was my favorite all time car. It traveled all over the US for about 120,000 miles plus another 50,000 while being towed behind a motorhome. I'd probably be driving it still but my wife attacked a tree with it. She survived the collision with no injury but the crash was fatal for the car. The CRV is everything the wagon was and more. Our driving style is about 60% rural, mountain roads, 20% Interstate and 20% city. Gas mileage overall is 27+ mpg. Should this CRV come to a bad end, it will be replaced with another CRV.
All wheel drive, great in the snow and steep gravel driveway. Honda dependability, fuel economy. The CRV 4 cyl engine has more power, is smoother and quieter than the 4 cyl RAV4. General appearance.
Design the rear seats in the AWD version to fold flush to the floor. Reduce road noise. A smooth flat spot on the dashboard for a GPS suction cup mount.
