Honda CRV and Element reviews?
Hey all, My wife is in the market for a used vehicle again, and she is partial to to the CR-V and Element. Our budget will probably let us get something in the 2002-2005 range. I know CR-V's older than that have a timing belt instead of a chain. I'm not sure if that would be a major issue.
We have NOT test driven either yet (drove a new CR-V but it is out of our budget.) In fact, finding an Element to test drive is becomming a bit of a chore.
Anyway, I was wondering what experience you all may have? I have heard they share a drive train and both can experience transmission and/or differential issues?
What say you all?

Other than oil changes, plugs/wires/filters, and tires, I have done the following maintenance:
Timing belt once
Exhaust once (hole rusted in it)
That's it... seriously.
