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


I have had my CRV for about a week and have put on about 600 miles. The fuel economy stinks for a 4 cylinder! I am averaging just around 20 MPG. The average meter moves up very slowly on the freeways and I seemed to max out at 21 MPG. However, it plummets rapidly when driving in the city getting around 15MPG. This is a lot worse than the 2008 Equinox that I was driving and it was a V6 with a lot more power and interior room. The other reviews are correct about the limited storage option in the CRV. Honda really needs to put in a coin holder. The three slots that are at knee level are small and difficult to access. Actually, they are kind of useless.

Best Features

MP3 jack.

Worst Features

Coin holder. Road noise is horrible! I get a headache from the noise after about 30 minutes on the freeway. Needs a smoother ride. You will feel and hear every bump in the road. Increase the fuel economy. Adjustable lumbar support.
