Is your 2014 noticeably quieter and smoother to drive at highway speeds than the previous ones?I've owned 1999, 2006, and 2014 CR-Vs. All of them EX models, and the 1999 and 2006 had manual transmissions.
Other than regular valve adjustments the 1999 was problem free.
The 2006 I bought used, and the previous owner didn't maintain it very well. After changing all the fluids, and a minor issue with the tailgate latch it was problem free.
The 2014 I bought new and it now has about 44,000 miles on it. It was trouble free until earlier this year, when it started having the VTC actuator rattle on cold startup. Through this forum I found out there was a TSB on the problem, and scheduled an appointment with my local Honda dealer. Because I reported the problem after the 3 year/36,000 mile warranty had expired, and just a few months past the 5 year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty I had to pay for the repair. They also discovered that the timing chain tensioner was bad, so they replaced that along with the actuator. Total cost was a little under $800.
I would not hesitate to recommend a 2013/2014, but with any used car purchase knowing the maintenance/repair history of the vehicle is important. If the previous owner kept all their receipts that would be a huge bonus!
