I bought a CRV after reading reviews here and Consumer Reports. I have been very happy with the car since buying it. It feels very well put together and is comfortable to drive. It's not a Maserati but that wasn't what I was looking for. I just wanted basic transportation, reliability, and a price that I could afford. I'm definitely happy to own this car and I expect many years of use.
I-Pod plug convenient and functional, seats comfortable, ride is quieter than I would have thought, you can put the windows down with key in acc., lots of ways to put down the back seats, cruise control conveniently on steering wheel.
More storage compartments, car should beep louder to let you know it's locked, more speeds on intermittent wipers (versus just one).
