I've owned my CR-V for almost 4 months and I couldn't be happier! Just returned from a 4,500-mile trip out west and got 28 mpg. Performance in the mountains (Yellowstone and Montana) was not a problem. I'm averaging 23-25 mpg with short trips around town. Acceleration has been more than adequate. This car is fun to drive!
I like the dash display that shows real-time mpg, fuel range, outside temp. Also like the dual cabin temp. control, audio system with controls in the steering wheel, lumbar support and heated seats.
Although I find the power is more than adequate, I would like the option of a V6.
My first new car purchase ever, and I am very sorry for buying this car. People are amazed that one couldn't be happy with a new car, but while CR-V has great comfort, notable reliability. When I did a Test Drive I felt good. But on the way back to my place there was tons of vibration on the steering wheel and when called Honda they just blamed the Continental tires and immediately got confirmation from the tires guy saying the tires are in a very good condition and the RIMS are not good. When spoke to Honda dealer they are giving bull stories and not trying to fix the prob. I am really regretting my decision of buying CRV. Need to wait and see still how many days i need to wait for this.
Honda better not suggest the Tire company how much weight should the tire can balance. Honda Dealer should perfectly check every inch of the car to make sure the car is running good and Honda is losing its impression Good of customer care. Honda is CRAP.
We purchased our CR-V EX-L in January, 2010. We have enjoyed it every day since. My wife comments that she loves the car every day. It is a responsive, comfortable ride. I thought I would be disappointed with the four-cylinder engine, but quite the contrary. It was plenty of engine for me. In almost a year, we have not found anything about the vehicle that we would want to change.
Comfortable interior, dual heat controls, heated seats, sun roof, appearance, quality of vehicle.
The only thing I would like to see in the CR-V would be the keyless ignition system like some of the other manufacturers offer.
