Good Small SUV

2007 Honda CR-V EX-L 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Great small suv overall. Ride is smooth overall but can be jarring over medium to larger size bumps. Engine has enough power around the city, but could use more on the freeway or when merging. Interior is nicely finished, but leather is a little on the cheap side compared to a premium small suv (acura rdx, infiniti ex35, etc.).
XM, fog lights, spoiler, cargo tray for storing two levels of cargo. Overall exterior looks are much improved in 07 over previous box style body. (I didn't care for the back spare tire that used to be stored on the rear door on older models.)
Need power driver and passenger seats. (I think they added this in '08). Better engine performance on freeway. More cargo space. Back wheels have a slight hesitation when engaging in snow so front wheels will spin. Factory Continental tires only lasted 30,000 miles.
