"I bought mine on 2006 january. it was a last minute thing kind of. I was thinking of getting a car. Now I am so used to driving a roomy SUV cant go back to a car.
Although its roomy it is not drinking that much gas. I have 4cyl cause I am European but getting 6cyl wouldnt hurt that much although I dont really need it.
I bought LX. The price difference between LX and EX was too much for me. At the end I am a single man and no need to pay extra for 5 leather seats but just sit at the front and use only drivers seat.
I wanted to have a moonroof but I couldnt get it with my LX and they asked to pay around $1000 so I didnt get it. Again it would be nice to have but it is not that important as it has lots of big windows. I get used to it. non colored windows were getting lots of car light especially at night so the first thing I did was to tint my windows.
I like my boxy CRV better thn new egg shaped ones. inside looks good on new ones though.
I drove mine for 35K miles and only thing I paid so far is gas and the oil. no extra repairs or hassles."
