2009 Honda CR-V EX-L 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Have driven 1600 miles. Added Remote start and Back-up sensors at the dealer. Two things really bother me. I am getting no better gas mileage with this 4 cyl on the highway than the 3.9 6 cyl Impala I turned in. The other thing is the Remote start. Why would you have to turn off the engine before you can open the door and get in. You have to restart the car. Double work for the battery and starter. On the GM vehicle you just enter the car and insert the key and drive away. Come on Honda, if GM can do it, so can you. If they can correct this and add a 6 cyl like the Rav-4, I think I would be close to a perfect vehicle in this class.
Satellite radio, Back-up sensors and the Remote start turning on heated mirrors, rear defrosters and front windshield defrosters. Also will turn on heated seat if you leave the switch in the on position the night before.
6 cylinder option. Top of the line model should include auto dimming mirror and Home-link
