99 - 01 CRV best SUV for everything
Pros: Visibility - great windows/easy to see anything
Cons: Road sound is more than I'd likeThe 1999 to 2001 Honda 5 spd CRV's are the best! Great traction control - this car just doesn't slip on any road conditions. Great mpg (23 winter, 25 summer) way ahead of any other SUV for its day or even today. Visibility is so good it is easy to park, get through a tight spot, and feel safe when backing up. Great/easy to haul a lot inside or on top rack when needed. At 170K++ all we do is change oil every 7K. It just keeps going and going and going.
