2006 Honda CR-V Special Edition 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
This car/suv is fabulous. Luxurious leather seating, thoughtful interior touches, so much roomier than it looks. This definitely has a lot of zip and is a breeze to pass people. It's such an incredibly smooth ride. The steering is very accurate (not numb like the Escape) and the brakes are tight and responsive (unlike the spongy Escape ones). I'm very pleased with this vehicle. I test drove the following cars to come to this conclusion: Escape, Tuscon, Equinox, Rendezvous, Sportage, Sedona. This Honda beats them all hands down!
Nice responsive brakes. Passing ability. Middle console that tucks out of sight. Position of gear shifter.
I wish the cup holders had an adjustable fit with bendable rubber edges. The widest thing they'll hold is a soda can. Also, the Latch tethers in the back are on the ceiling instead of the floor. Very minor gripes considering all the pluses to this versatile car.
