2012 Honda CR-V

How To Not Screw Up A Good Thing We Lavrincs are unabashed Honda CR-V fans. So much so that both my wife and father have one parked in their respective garages.

All of which helps to explain why it's placed either first or second in the compact CUV sales race since it was first introduced to the U.S. back in 1996.
