Pre-purchase Car Inspection Get a Quote

Hi there. I like the Honda CRV since I have a 1998 Honda CRV EX AWD that I have owned since 2005 and have had no major problems. I just recently passed the car down to my daughter for her first car. The car gets about 19 mpg average. I would recommend it. The other vehicle you listed is not complete since Hyundai makes several vehicles for 2009. I would need to know the model in order to make a proper comparison. Whichever car you buy, I recommend having a mechanic conduct a pre-purchase inspection on the car to make sure you that you are fully aware of the car’s existing condition.
