The vehicle has been all that I expected and more. I am not one of the morons who buy a car thinking that I will never have a problem. The few issues that I had were either diagnosed as normal or fixed under the warranty. The CR-V is a pleasure to own and drive. It handles well and is good on gas. I am 6'-3" and fit in the car well. The interior is well designed (except the silly gear shift lever) and comfortable. The sound system is great. The sun roof is a great feature, never a leak. The fold down tray between the front seats is very handy. There is great small item storage. Mechanically, it is a solid car. Take care of it and it will run and run and ...
Utility - this vehicle does many things well. It holds a five person family with only a little tightness in back seat. With the back seats down, it has a tremendous cargo capacity. With the optional bike rack the dealer installed, it is great getting to and from rides. It is sharp and fun!
