If only we had the diesel with the hand mixer

I think if these cars had the diesel and standard trans they would be alright. It started out as a project between Honda and Land Rover during BMW years. I think Honda went to market with the CRV early and pissed off some people. They do get some places but usually rip the exhaust off getting there. I think most of its failure in this market was due to its engine/coolant related failures.

Yea they are crap.

The only ones that seem ok have a lot of miles. It seems if they make it over 100k they will run for a while.

I have one we can raffle off seats for those who want to watch it burn.
Let me know when you want to start selling those tickets. I think I have a place we can fit a lot of people and accidently have a fire. Good central location/all roads lead to Chicago.

I hate to say it but I wouldn't mind a CRV to drive everyday to work. It's got to be better than the buick century I'm suffering in currently.

I think the only ones that went that far got an engine and trans half way there.
