Hello all, I am new on here so please go easy on me! It's possibly a bit late to be asking this, but here goes. We have just put down a deposit on a 2007 petrol CR-V I - VTEC EX 2.0 Auto (priced at £7.5k) at a reputable local 2nd hand car dealer showroom. The car has done 66k and seems in great condition with nothing obvious to make me think the milage is not correct. I have checked the HPI report and the MOT test record which proves the milage (unless the car was clocked in its first 3 years). We have spent a while looking for a replacement for my partners beloved Mercedes A class which we have owned for 10 years but is now showing its age and has been out grown by our children. We have looked at several different types of car and even considered leasing a new one but have come back to the CR-V as the favourite for space, spec and quality. My slight bug bare is that this car is only one year newer than her current car and I wonder if we would be better spending a bit more and getting a newer one? I am a life long Honda fan and have owned many Honda motorbikes but never a Honda car. Is there anything we should be looking out for with this model? What is the auto box like? I am going for a second test drive (in the dry), is there anything I should listen out for or be aware of? Is this model a good bet? We tend to keep cars for a long time. Or is this early model best avoided? Sorry for all the questions, any advice would be greatly appreciated before I part with my hard earned! Thanks, Paul.
