We took our time trying out several other vehicles. But for our needs, and for the money, we bought a 2012 CRV ex. After 3 months and 5k miles, we are very happy with our choice. This is our second CRV we have bought from Walker-Jones, and we got the best deal available in the area. They have a wonderful maintenance team also. I know this review sounds like it was written by the dealership, but I am not afliated with them at all. I just thought the vehicle ands dealer were worthy of an honest review. Our previous 06 CRV lx had 155k miles, and we had only 4 minor repairs in the 6 years we had it.
