Hi, my name is Jake ( Navy nickname). I used to own a 96 Accord 2.2 VTEC Auto and have been without a Honda since 2009! Happily I recently bought a 2002 CR-V 2.0 SE Sport Auto and I love it. No the economy isn't brilliant but I didn't buy it for long journeys. I am now a photographer living in South Scotland and needed a vehicle to get me up some otherwise impassible tracks. No, not full off road, I am aware of the CR-V's off road limitations. It still has a low mileage for the age, 95,000, doesn't smoke on start-up and has plenty of guts with a high level of comfort. I look forward to reading your threads and hopefully being able to add some useful helps.
