I just bought my 2009 Honda CRV LE (base model) two weeks ago. I got the glacier blue color with gray interior. Its a beautiful car w/ exquisite design. The interior is spacious (high ceiling) and adjustable high seating offer panoramic view. Good trunk size to haul groceries & furniture. Its a fun & sporty looking car. Handling can be a bit stiff and the engine drags when you try to accelerate (but then again it is a 4 cylinders). The following need improvements: 1. Lack power when you try to accelerate, make all trims V6. 2. Trunk door should release/pop automatically w/ press of button. 3. Add alarm to all trims.
1. High seating offers panoramic view, exquisite exterior design. 2. Trunk door opens upward instead of side. 3. Spare tire store inside the trunk and not dangling on the back. 4. Great CD player.
1. Poor rear visibility; re-design side back windows. 2. Seat adjustment (backward/forward /upward/down) should be powered. 3. Add center console for storage. 4. Trunk door(back hatch) should release automatically w/ press of button. 5. Add cover to coin holder 6. Make all trim V6 7. Add alarm.
