I have decided that I want to buy a CRV. I have a budget of about $3,000. I have been looking at a couple of 99's and an 01 as well. All high mileage of course, anywhere from 154k to 176k. I won't have the cash until the end of the month when I can withdraw it from my 401k so I am doing some research first. Given my maximum budget I figure I can maybe get something in the year range I have stated. Maybe something older. I need tips on what to look for to either get or avoid. Things like automatic vs manual, engine sizes that I either want or want to avoid. I do want an AWD or 4 WD. What should I consider or avoid when I finally go to buy. All help is much appreciated.
