Loved my OLD CR-V
By Jamie on
2010 Honda CR-V LX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Traded in my 2008 CR-V due to high mileage and great trade-in offer. Loved that zippy car, so it made perfect sense to trade it in. Have almost 7K miles on 2010 and am very disappointed in the mileage - was told I could expect 30/31 mpg. I barely squeak out 26 and that's if I'm holding at a steady 50 going downhill. The least bit acceleration and I can barely get out of my own way. Runs nothing like my 2008, which ran smooth and had power to pass when needed. Easily got 28/30 as mainly drive hwy. The pickup is slow and you can hear the gears downshifting to pickup speed - nothing like good ol' 2008. Sorry I traded up, I mean down..
Sunroof - miss the heated seats of the 2008. Miss the 2008 overall.
Fix the gears! V6 would be great if it continues to run this poorly. Improve the gas mileage as promised. If you can't deliver it - don't use it as a selling point.
