Hi all, I'm looking to replace my ford focus estate (167000 miles on, its done well). Looking at 4x4s and I've test driven a 2006 executive model CR-V. Really liked pretty much everything about it! I was hoping you guys could give me some insights/advice. My commute is 90% motorway, 60 miles of it, and some countryside at either end. I've got a fair bit of money to spend potentially. I like the equipment, the height and the better than average chances in the snow. I lurve the automatic as well. I'll not be doing offroading (not on purpose) but I do need to get into work reliably whatever the weather (I work at a hospital and not getting there isn't really an option) So questions.. I've heard that the front end handling isn't great in the wet, is this true? are reviewers driving it like a hatchback? (expecting too much and generally overdoing it) is this a tyre choice thing? Any common faults to look out for? Can the satnav be swapped out for a standard double din? (really showing its age) The one I saw was £5500 with 85000 miles on.. does this seem to be an ok price? (From a dealership) i've seen later models but the price seems to jump up, allot! is there anything major service wise around this mile mark? What are the costs like compared to something like a ford focus? mpg wise for my commute it looks fairly equal according to numbers, my mechanic reckons a service is similar.. how about parts? What's a typical life expectancy? my focus is surprisingly ok for its millage, will the honda go for this many miles without major problems? (I know, how long is a piece of string, but assuming its been reasonably well looked after is 200k+ feasible?) Thats a few for starters! Any other advice would be much appreciated! Thanks!
