I have friends who drive CR-Vs and love them. I researched different cars in its class and got a good deal on this. It does have more road noise than my former car did though the ride and seats are very comfortable. The radio, CD, MP3 system is great and sounds terrific. The interior is roomy and deceiving from the outside. I'm looking forward to see how it handles in the snow. Not even 700 miles on it and I'm getting 27.5 MPG on the highway.
