2008 Honda CR-V LX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
We have owned this car for almost a year and are very pleased with it. We shopped for the Rav4, Equinox, etc but the CRV came out ahead. On a long trip recently, which included a mountain pass, we got 33 mpg! It's cute, handles well and is great in the snow and on ice. On the down side, the tires that come with it are garbage and several people have had to replace them after only one year, including us. The folding rear seats are a VERY poor design. They wad up behind the front seats and give you almost no extra room. Honda designers should take some tips from Rav4 rear seats and have them fold once, and completely flat. Also, the hatchback, when opened, can drip muddy snow and rain.
fuel economy, appearance, AC, CC and power everything even on base model, good for 3 passengers in back (no hump in floor)
Needs to come with better tires, center console and the way the rear seats fold to be redesigned.
