i now have nearly 5000 miles on my ex awd crv.
comfort, reasonable mpg
21-23 around town and 28 highway not to bad for awd.
it is quite, handles well, and the build quality is second to none.
i have had over 50 vehicles and i know a good one and this is one of the best . i have to say there is nothing that stands out that needs changing, it nearly perfect.
honda for 2012 don't screw it up when you make any changes
This is a year and a half update on the crv ex.
It now has 15,000 on it and the gas miles per gallon city is the same, but i did a trip to New hampshire this past fall and it returned 31 mpg at a steady 70 on the hightway and 55 on the country roads. No problems and we like it more every day. Saw the new one, it's ok but no real big advances so we will keep the 2010 for some time.
