Looking at changing our SAAB95 for a CR-V. Before I do so I would like to know how Honda bodywork quality compares to the rest. We tend to run our cars to either old age or high mileage. Our previous car was a Mazda 626. At 126k miles mechanically sound but bodywork shot. It was 12 years old but the paintwork deteriorated badly much sooner than that with the colour fading so badly the red colour on the spolier and hatchback turned pink at about 8 years. The SAAB95 at 8 years old is in much better condition but is costing us money to run. So where do Honda cars fit in the spectrum. I've had a Honda motorbike so am reassured about the engineering.
