1997 Honda CR-V EXL 4WD 2.0 litre from North America
Not sexy, but runs great
I ripped off the brake light cover when I was loading something into the car.
Driver's side power window is getting a bit slow.
Automatic transmission downshifts a bit more rough than it used to.
This is a seriously reliable, workmanlike car. It definitely won't win any acceleration battles, but it has enough power. Runs great and pretty decent with gas if you keep it under 85 mph.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I ended up selling this car at 180,000 miles. The wheel bearings went out about 175,000 miles. The amazing thing is that nothing went wrong with the car otherwise. And the interior held up really well to camping trips, a big dog, moving, etc.
Overall a very well built automobile. If Honda hadn't changed the shape of the CRV so much, I may have bought a new one.
