    After 10 years ownership of a petrol auto Accord, which was an excellent car (apart from an expensive gearbox rebuild at 85,000 miles), I've now bought a one-owner 07 CR-V 2.2 diesel that's done 64,000 miles. I chose the CR-V because I like the higher seating position and it will be better for towing the caravan. It has a few features that I like such as glass roof, heated leather seats (although the quality of the leather is not quite as good as those on the Accord!). It's the first diesel I've owned so we'll see I'm looking forward to CR-V ownership and being part of this forum.

    Welcome. Got to say Im AMAZED that you had trouble with the AT, never heard of a gearbox trouble at anything like that mileage, if at all.

    Thanks for the welcomes. Re. the Accord gearbox. The fluid was changed as per service schedule with recommended spec. It didn't tow that much, we have a lightweight caravan (and the gearbox specialist said there was no sign of overheating) . It started with it going into limp mode. Initially solenoids were diagnosed but on further investigation the bearings were breaking up (I know that suggests poor lubrication but, as i say, the fluid was kept on top of) and the debris was affecting the solenoids. It's put me off automatics which is a pity because I liked it from a driving aspect.
