I Like My 09 CRV LX

Vehicle

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

Review

We have four Hondas (one an 08 CRV) in the family, so sold on reliability. It came down between the CRV and Hyundai Santa Fe. I really liked the Santa Fe for the money, but I drive cars 10-15 years, and felt better about Honda's long term reliability. I have not noticed the road noise problem I have read about. The CRV is fun to drive, and does very well on the interstate. I like the maintenance minder, mpg display, etc. The ride and seats are a little firmer than I like (67 yrs old), but not that uncomfortable. My only problem was "rail rust" in the paint on top. I used a clay bar to help remove it. I do not understand why the top can't be covered in transit. So far, very satisfied.

Favorite Features

Considering it is a small SUV, I like the way it handles on the interstate. The four cylinder is smooth and has enough power for my driving. I like the maintenance minder and associated displays. The seating space is good in both front and back, with some rear cargo space still left .

Suggested Improvements

No real complaints, other than more protection during shipping. I was somewhat disappointed that it was not assembled in the US. I wish there had been more LX's available. I had very few colors to choose from, but didn't want to pay extra $2k for sun roof and other features I didn't need.
