The Ex model I have gets great MPG, about 24 city and 32 highway. The MPG gauge is great I try my best to keep it at 30 or above whenever I drive-sure does help to coast to stops and be gentle on the gas pedal. The car is very comfortable on around town trips- longer trips do make you stiff, but hours in any car can do that. The fit and finish is wonderful and the layout of the dash is good. I had a 1998 CR-V and this one is much better overall.
MPG gauge and service reminder tool. Also like the folding cargo shelf - wish it had a storage place built in when you have large items however.
I wish it did not have the black plastic bumpers and trim. Back hatch door is sometimes difficult to close-a strap or auto close feature would be nice to have
