Purchased 2009 CRV LX in mid Feb. Rode excellent in test drive in cool weather. Handling is fine ..compared RAV and Tribute but CRV won out. Owned Civic manual transmission LX previously for 12 yrs and never had a problem. Only negative with CRV now is disturbing engine high pitch whine which continues seconds after engine is turned off.
instrumentation, good mileage, tight steering all excellent
Seats are not that comfortable but car is affordable; hope Honda returns CRV to a manual transmission; reduce engine noise.
