1997 Honda CR-V 4dr SUV AWD


Considering it's a first-year model,this is a very reliable vehicle with few problems. It generally needs your usual maintenance and keeps on going. I bought mine used (68000 miles on the odometer) in 2000. It's been used to haul many things from top soil to 36" TV (the box barely fit in the back). It's been taken on and off road, on regular commute and 6-hour trips. My only complaint is it's WAY underpowered, which can be a pain when you need to get up to speed on the freeway.

Best Features

Excellent turning radius, visibility, versatile interior, adjustable roof rack (not fixed positions as in the new V), picnic table :)

Worst Features

Needs 70 more horses and lots more torque, seats a bit stiff for long-distance driving.
