Coming out of the Corporate / Company Car world I've driven a lot of Brand New / Good Cars. This Crosstour is by far the best overall vehicle in terms of quality +reliability + safety. I'm now at 66K Miles so that's a good sample size. My only complaint is the rear visibility because of the sloped rear hatchback. I bought this used with 12K Miles.
A 2010 models paint already looks 20 years old. Clear coat is cloudy, roof and hood, flaking, whole car looks aged well beyond it's years. Last estimate to repaint, was over $10,000. Sit's next my other car 5 years older, paint is as if new! Dealer tells us so sorry. Not their problem. It's an embarassement in the driveway.
We purchased a 2010 Accord Crosstour used with 39,000 miles. It has a smooth ride, is quiet, has a luxurious, roomy interior, and drives well. It is great for our family. The engine is smooth and has oodles of power and is pretty fuel efficient. The features are great and the design is very eye-catching. The problems: VCM sometimes shakes the car at certain speeds, and the electrical system is not great. The original battery had a cell failure at 45,000 miles, sand then the ac compressor shorted out, draining the replacement battery 3 times before we figured out the problem with 57,000 miles. Hopefully no more problems come up because it's a great car and everything else is reliable .
Exterior design, comfort, back-up camera, Bluetooth, sunroof, comfortable heated seats, powerful engine, smooth ride, quiet, doors close with a solid thunk, feels very well built.
VCM needs work, 6 speed auto instead of 5, electrical reliability, stronger brakes (seemed hot and warped a bit after driving the West Virginia Turnpike which requires lots of braking.)
After reaching 250000 trouble free miles on my CRV I decided to look for a different car. The Pilot seemed too big and I wanted something a little larger than the CRV, this was it. I'm 6'4" and fit very well in the Crosstour. Love the AWD, the Navi, bluetooth, great power and room. I like the height too, my 95 year old grandfather can get in and out with ease. The shock towers limit the cargo with a bit, but not a huge deal. Would be nice to be able to change the Navi voice, "she" sounds a little naggy sometimes. Only problem was with the dealer, Certified Used from Hidy Honda in OH. TERRIBLE. Would never buy a car from them again. Needed rear brakes after 6000 miles.
All wheel drive, NAVI/audio system and good power.
Power hatch, side turn signal indicators and less intrusive shock towers in cargo area.
I traded an '05 Yukon SLT for this farce of a fuel saver when the Crosstour first came out. I thought with gas prices rising, it would be a good move. NOT~This car gets worse mileage (both in city and hwy) than either of my 2 prior Yukies. Honda kept passing the mileage off as the car "needing to be broken in"...seriously? How much breaking in? I have had this car for almost 3 years (46K mi) and it is worse now than before. The car still looks great and the interior has held up nicely, except for the plastic pieces, not built to last. So far, I've replaced brakes, tires, lights, etc.
When I bought this car, all crosstour dashes were black, I don't know if there are other options now or not, but in the summer, this, coupled with the fact that there is an ac powered by a gerbil, makes your face feel like you are roasting...Not cool, literally.
My husband won't even ride in this car in the summer.
But today is the end...Tomorrow, a more economical Cadillac crossover(GM~this Honda has brought me back to you) :)
Fuel economy, more metal, light-colored dash, more cfm and rpm with a/c, better tires, better brakes, and big one here...
Less slimy representatives to deal with customers.
