i love my cute Honda CR-V. It handles like a dream. Has incredibly smooth transmission. Acceleration is commendable for such a small engine. It gives exactly what it claims: 21mpg city driving; about 28 for highway. The available cargo room is amazing. The CR- V is stylish, but it has a lot of competition from the copycats.
I love the moon roof, head and tail lights; the pop-up tray in the front; the stick shift; back cargo space.
To me, the ride is a bit stiff. I wish the sun visors had extensions on them. Wish Honda would have made the fog lights standard for the CR-V EX. Installing them aftermarket appears quite involved. I also think the tailgate should open to the left for ease at curbside.
