Pros: "cargo space is great! good mileage"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"My 14 year old CR-V is so reliable. I take good care of it (oil changes, checkups, etc.) and it still keeps going! I bought it slightly used (2 years old) with no upgrades so now I'm thinking about getting a new car with a few "bells and whistles" on it. It will definitely be another CR-V!"

Cons: "Can be buffeted by high winds"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"Very reliable. Had few problems & have driven over 100,000 miles on it. (We were the 2nd owner.) Only two real issues. Driving can be affected by high winds. Must be careful at speeds above 60 when winds are present. Also - gas mileage is not as good as what you think it should be. We've been getting 20 to 22 for most trips. Power locks and windows have had some issues."
