As our boys are getting older, we decided it was time to downsize from a Toyota Sienna to a compact SUV. We considered all makes but we kept returning to the CR-V and we could not be happier. The features are spot on and all the controls are well thought out. It has plenty of power even when hauling around 4 adults and their gear. There is a bit of wind/road noise, but it was a lot less then competitive vehicles like the RAV4. We were a bit concerned that it would be under powered, especially compared to the V-6 in our Sienna, but it is just fine.
* Smooth running, quiet engine with plenty of power. * Power roof is a nice addition that we did not think we would enjoy; we were wrong. * Traditional Honda quality throughout. * Sits higher than our mini-van did. This helps improve viability. * Great sound system. * Comfortable on long drives.
* Better sound proofing would be nice. It is not bad, but could be better with minimal effort. * A 6 speed transmission would be nice too.
