One thing that makes me say that it is
only a 'near' perfect about this car is
its fuel economy and power. My 2001 CR-
V LX is slower than my Mom's 11-year
old 1991 Accord EX on uphill freeways.
I constantly get about 22.5 MPG

that a 4-cyl 2.0 liter engine gets
poorer MPG than a 6-cyl 3.0 liter
Overall design is sooooooo cute.

RPM on a not-so-uphill street.
