I'm getting on my P-plates soon, and my very awsome Dad is buying me a car. There's a second hand CRV for $12,000 (Aus). It's done 160,000km, all wheeled drive, manual (5 speed), 2 litre engine, 4 cylinder, 1999. 25,000km warranty. It seems to drive well and we can't see any problems with it (although we only had a short test-drive). Does anyone own one? Does anyone know any problems, issues or defects with the car? Any good redeeming features? P.S. We were originally looking at a Hyundi Lantra. One of our main credentials is that it fits my upright bass, so if anyone could suggest a car that could do this, is easy on fuel, small engine, manual and around or below the $10k mark second hand it would also be appreciated.
