Then we had an '08 Fit (Jazz to the rest of you) and when we outgrew that (which took 5 years), we got our '09 CR-V.
That CR-V is both Mommy's kid-carriage and Daddy's truck.
So yes, we love the Hondas in this house.
I would love to find a 1st gen CRV for my wife to use, to replace her increasingly unreliable 96 Corolla. Or one with manual trans if it were to be my car. The chassis and engine are almost identical to 92-00 Civics and 94-01 Integras (like my car). And mechanically the B20B 2.0L engine is very similar to the 1.8L in my wife's Corolla.
But IMHO all the CRV's after the 1st gen just got way too porky for my liking.
Oh and here's a pic I snapped at a local Italian car show several years ago. It rained that day but the pic still came out great, I thought.
