While not the most exciting vehicle, it's a good crossover alternative. Testing director Kim Reynolds logs, "This car's only problem is its design -- specifically, exterior design. It's amazing that, when many manufacturers can only dream of building cars of Honda's quality and excellence, Honda is struggling. For damn sake, Honda, hire designers!"

The wagon that isn't a wagon went in for service at a little over 17,000 miles. The dealership changed the oil, drained and refilled the rear differential fluid, checked all major fluids, rotated the tires, and checked tire pressures. We'd noted a shimmy while braking; the techs determined the best thing to do was replace the front pads and resurface the rotors.
