This is the 3 rd CR-V since 2005 and what a change. The new CR-V was made in the US which may make a difference. The other 2 were pure Japanese. Acceleration is nonexistent. Feels like I am pulling an anchor whenever I hit the gas. With AC on, its even worse . The center console is nice but if you drop anything between it and the seat, you have to hire a contortionist to retrieve it. I don't like the auto drivers seat as the ranges are not as complete as the old manual controls. Loads of blind spots in this baby. I didn't even consider a different car as mt 2007 was a peach. I shouldn't have traded it in. This is my last CR-V and I can't wait to trade for a different brand.
Looks good at the curb. Interior is pretty well finished and roomy.
Send all the assembly back to Japan where they made a great car before having assemble in US. Bigger engine with more torque would be must. Under powered to a point I feel unsafe. MPG is about 15% less than my old CR-V.
