Personally I am in the market for one to use as a commuter to relieve the gratuitous mileage on my 2002 Accord EX (8,000 miles in the last 4 months). I only commute about 24 miles one-way but I like to drive my Accord on the long road trips to the lake, etc. and have been just piling on the miles.
The CRX sounds like a fun (5-speed), reliable mode of transportation with a hint of practicality (hatchback and good mpg). The hard part is finding one in good shape for under $3000 in my area. I also am not real knowledgable about engines. I know where the radiator, dipstick, and spark plugs are but I don't think I could tell a good CV joint from a bad one by looking or detect elctrical problems.
Hope to get a discussion going.
