I purchased my CR-V used in 1999. I am a safety specialist who travels extensively, at the time all over Central and Western NY State. I learned early on that the service Honda provides at 30,000 mile intervals is well woth the cost. My vehicle ran relatively trouble free. I have had the timing belt replaced twice, only one brake job, some front end work, a new radiator, a new exhaust system and a couple of sets of tires. I drove the car in snowy weather on many occasions and I can honestly say I never slipped or slid one time. Three and a half year's ago as my daughter began college to study to become a Physician's Assistant, I let her have the car. She drives it conservatively and takes pride in its sharp appearance. When she graduates next year she has aspirations to buy a brand new CR-V when she is out making an income. We have been very satisfied with the value and quality of this vehicle. I have heard persons lament that buying a vehicle in its first model year is a mistake, that it takes some time to "get the bugs out". Not the case with our little CR-V!
