2009 Honda CR-V EX-L 4dr SUV w/Navigation (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
This is a well-engineered, solid vehicle at a reasonable price. The vehicle provides better road visibility as it sits up higher than a sedan, decent mileage, and is flexible enough if we need to transport small stuff (e.g., chairs, boxes, etc.). The ride is kind of rough, not sure if a change of tires would help, or that's the way it is supposed to ride.
leather seats are comfortable with seat warmer for winter; navigation system is handy and easy to use; decent mileage (21 mpg in town and 28 on highway); trunk hatch opens straight up instead of sideways; looks better than competing vehicles that have spare tire sitting on back hatch.
include seat memory function and fog lamps as standard features on the higher end models; design a seat fold down that provides a flat surface and eliminates the funky side straps; improve the daytime visibility on the gas gauge; conform the navigation system to the Acura's (less buttons)
