I was looking for an all wheel drive utility vehicle that didn't drive like a truck and would be reliable for 150k miles or more. I'm very satisfield with the ride, gas mileage, handling, and acceleration. Other competitors I test drove (RAV4, Forester) didn't seem to have the handling and smooth acceleration of the CR-V.
Smooth change to AWD, can't really sense it. Great visibility, extra storage under the rear floor. Peppy engine, no hesitation when accelerating onto the interstate.
