We liked the car when we first bought it, and our satisfaction has only improved. We bought the CR-V because we thought it was really functional given our lifestyle (baby and two dogs). It was one of the few small suvs that could comfortably fit our car seat behind the front passenger seat. That, combined with Honda's rep for reliability and safety, sealed the deal. We've driven it for 2 weeks now and really enjoy the ride. The only negatives are that the sight lines to the rear aren't ideal (but they are more than acceptable). Also, the seats aren't the most comfortable/luxurious, but neither are they uncomfortable. We got the LX trim level, however, so that's to be expected.
