Bought CRV-2010 in SC and immediately drove to Orlando and back (about 1100 miles in just 5 days). Crispy vehicle. The maximum gas/mileage I got was 29.2 in the highways. Convenient and roomy interior. Pickup is slightly inferior when compared with a few of the others in this class.
Steering; you definitely have a feel here. Small gear allows swapping of passengers during the drive.
Honda should give some more interior options for the LX model such as, external temperature, direction indication, blue tooth
