2009 Honda CR-V LX 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

Review

So I have about 8k miles on this cr-v. It is ok so far but is begging for improvement. First off the gas mileage is no where near advertised unless you are going to drive pure interstate which I rarely do. My driving is 65% highway (at 65mph-70mpg) and I've been averaging 20 mpg. I did drive this car pure city before and got approx 18mpg. Next is the engine. Do not even think about passing someone with this SUV. The engine is very underpowered, it's almost like this car is begging for a v6. However, the engine is very smooth, and very quiet below 75mph. Ride wise this is a firm ride, Honda could have made the suspension a little softer. Finally THE ROAD NOISE! On the Highway it is very loud.

Favorite Features

Looks nice from the outside, great seating design, fun to drive.

Suggested Improvements

Very underpowered engine, solve the road noise problem. If it is windy outside, it gets much worse. Make a smoother shifting transmission, it can be hesitant and shift roughly if you demand power from it.
