Purchased our first Honda (2009 Accord EX-L w/nav) in 2008. Loved the car but after two years (and getting older) found it hard to get in and out of. Also noticed the road and wind noise. Started looking around for a vehicle that might be easier to get in and out of with a smoother, quieter ride. Test drove the Edge, Equinox, Highlander and Venza. Liked the Venza but decided to try the CR-V. During the test drive the salesman suggested we might want to drive the CT. Had not heard of it but after seeing it (White Diamond Pearl w/black leather,and driving it, knew it was what we had been looking for. Loved the styling, familiar features, ride and love to drive it. Can't wait for long trip.
Ease of entry/exit; ride is smooth and quiet; lots of cargo room with two lights in cargo area, navigator/audio system, USB port, and styling. Doesn't look like every other car on the road.
Power lift gate, power up and down for passenger seat, relocate the USB port, compass in rear view mirror for models with navi (other vehicles we drove had both).
