    You Can Set It On Fire, Or Roll It Down A Hill... — I inherited the "Rock Mobile" from my mother and drive it regularly. Since I have it now, I've run it into the ground and it still keeps going. It's solid, but a little wobbly (obviously since most SUVs are that way) but overall great cheap vehicle to run off into the woods and not get stuck.

    Pros: Affordable, reliable, lots of leg room.

    Cons: Has a small gas tank

    Decnt Small Suv, Nothing Else. — This is just a normal small suv, as most honda does, its about average. Also its surprisingly hard to flip over, ask me how I know.

    Pros: Does what a small SUV should.

    Cons: Not too many.

    Great Suv — This car is great for an SUV, 2.0L 126HP engine is responsive, average acceleration, smooth 4-speed auto transmission, good stopping power from the front discs with all round ABS, handling is good for an SUV, great suspension, very comfortable city runabout.

    Pros: Engine, transmission, handling & comfort.

    Cons: Acceleration, rear drum brakes, wind noise & resale value.

    My (un)fortunate Car — This CR-V is very good being compared with my another car, Lada 112, but in my opinion japanese car need to be more and more reliable! I have changed front suspension (all part!) now need to change rear suspension and front CV joints. And many-many small part hee and there...

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: - automatic transmission
    - good family car
    - 4WD

    Cons: - endless repairs((( may be problem with my pre-owned car?
    - expensive OEM parts

    This is a very good car. The back seats are a little small though for larger passengers. Acceleration is slow. Handles well for what it its. Had good ground clearance for off road obstacles, though not a real offroader with out low range gears
