Hi am the owner of a 1999 CR-V 1 and called it Old Grizzly. Had it 4 years used every day and has 154000 miles on the clock. My kids thought i was mad buying it as running cost not as cheap as there hi - tech wonders but i can still fix mine with a spanner and screwdriver when needed. Do most servicing myself so keeps going on a limited budget. Keep going back to Hondas having various cars in the past they have given me the least trouble.
