Very fun car to drive. Yes the knocks are that its not a true off-roader. and some don't even call it an SUV, but a wagon. i still think otherwise.
some people say that the engine is weak. the car does feel heavy at times, but i think SOLID is a better description. i for one have had no problems with the 146 hp output. yes the car could be slightly quieter, but you can still tell the Honda refinement in the car over a longer period (1 year -4 years) than you can in any other car.
switched the factory CD player with a pioneer from BestBuy. Sound quality improved dramatically. also added remote locks as i both the AWD LX model.
