2004 CR-V 15 Years and Going Strong
The CR-V has been the perfect vehicle for me. It's large enough to carry groceries, my kids, and my kid's friends without being too large to comfortably drive and park. The AWD makes it a dream to drive in inclement weather of all types. It has a very smooth, stable ride to it that makes me feel safe. With the exception of routine maintenance my vehicle has never experienced any major mechanical malfunctions of any kind. This has been the most reliable vehicle that I have ever owned. The interior is comfortable, and everything is located within easy reach. The sunroof is a nice feature, as well. This vehicle is a sturdy little workhorse that always gets the job done. The only downsides I have found are minimal. The AWD does make it less fuel efficient, but I would easily trade that for the stability in bad weather. The delay wipe setting is completely useless. For all of the things that Honda got right, they surely failed at this one. It is either too fast, or too slow for conditions, but this is really just a minimal problem. At 15 years old, my vehicle is still in excellent shape even through harsh Illinois winters. I love this vehicle so much that when it finally gives out, I will go out and get another one. I highly recommend the CR-V.
