Traded in 2005 Honda Odyssey. Love Honda reliability. First 3 tanks of gas avg 21.5, 20.5, 21.3 mpg, all city driving. Handles well and for a 4 cylinder it has some pep. Front seats are a little stiff, but mine started to loosen on the way home from the dealer and are now very comfortable. It is also very spacious on the interior. I am 6 ft tall and can sit in the back seat with 4-5 inches knee room to spare. My kids love riding in it. Cargo area holds quite a bit of stuff. Ride is a little bumpy on rough roads, but not any worst than my Odyssey. I really enjoy driving my CR-V and couldn't be happier with my purchase. If you don't need the fancy bells and whistles the LX is plenty.
Auto dim radio when slowing down, AUX jack standard in LX, 6 speaker sound system standard in LX, all safety features standard
More cubbies and storage in the front area of the vehicle
