What is this:
Simply put the 2005 Honda CR-V is a mini-SUV with ample power, room and refinement (power mirrors and heated seats for example). This is a vehicle with stable handling and comfortable ride (smooth at speed) and a generous interior. The “full time” 4WD makes this a terrific ‘Seattle’ car. I’ve driven this CR-V myself for a while and it’s time to offer it to someone willing to overlook some cosmetic deficiencies for a below Blue Book price and rock-solid dependability; overall, as you see, the car is attractive just rough around the edges. There is some superficial salt corrosion resulting from time spent in Michigan. The EX is rich with options AND this one has the added trim package: moon roof, leather seats and other niceties that make it a pleasure to drive.

Why this is a great opportunity:
Quoting some recent user reviews from this May & June from the Kelly Blue Book site is the best way for me to articulate why this CR-V is a “great opportunity”. There were no negative comments from this same timeframe:

“Compares well with the Odyssey we had before it. More rugged. Does well as commuting, long-distance, around town, recreational utility, and multi-weather-beater vehicle. Quite comfortable whether sitting in front or back. Feels and drives safe.”

“This is a great car. Best value for money. Functional, practical, responsive, spacious. If i went back in time I would buy the exact same model again.”

The CR-V was updated for the 2005 model year adding newly designed headlights along with antilock brakes, stability control, side airbags for front passengers, strengthened B-pillars for better side-impact crash protection and various interior styling refinements. This is of course, a practical economical choice yet, there’s a lot of comfort, safety and utility that come with this Honda CR-V.

Existing manufacturer or other third party warranties are specified explicitly on the purchase order at the time of sale. In Washington state, by law, used cars are sold with an implied warranty. Any used vehicle must perform as compared to other models of the same year, make & mileage and price paid. An implied warranty is also based on the usage (mileage and driving habits) of the new owner. In other words, the implied warranty covers only the mechanical defects which would be unusual for the year, make model, mileage and price of the vehicle purchased (within a reasonable period of time). If the price you negotiated is below the KBB dealer retail price, you’ll likely need to sign a waiver of the implied warranty at the time of purchase.
