Had a 2009 CRV EX-L 4WD. Overall it was a nice vehicle.
However, there are a few things which make the vehicle difficult for longer trips.
First is the road noise. By far the worst I have ever had in a vehicle. Second is the lack of power.
The engine is just too timid to function will at highway speeds. Third is the excessive hard interior plastics. I also felt the leather was too much like vinyl. I found the vehicle wonderful for use around town but for any long trips the ride was far too uncomfortable.
The size of the vehicle for use around town. The overall quality seemed good. I didn't have the vehicle long enough to judge the reliability.
More powerful engine.
Better interior materials. USB connection. Auto dimming mirror.
