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

Review

There is much to recommend the 2009 CRV, including a well-built car with many fancy features for a reasonable price. But after only two months, the horribly uncomfortable driving position - and the neck and shoulder pain I am experiencing - is causing me to sell it back to the dealer. I am 5'7" - and would not recommend this car to anyone my size or smaller. When seated a comfortable distance from the steering wheel (which telescopes only minimally), my knees hit the steering column. In addition, the active restraint headrests are horrendous, and there is nothing to be done about to modify their angle, which pushes the head forward.

Best Features

Spacious cargo area; great head room; amazingly small turning radius.

Worst Features

Improve driving position. Redesign headrests. Sacrifice some of the car's bulk (which makes it drive rather heavily) for improved gas mileage.
