This is my first Honda and I love it. My research for a new vehicle was extensive and over 8 months long. I finally decided on a small SUV or Crossover, it came down to 3 SUVs. Honda CR-V, Ford Escape and Nissan Rouge. The Nissan Rouge was easily ruled out, small trunk area and other personally wants. So it was down to the Honda CR-V and Ford Escape, and the Honda CR-V won. Yes the CR-V may cost a little more but it is worth it.
Gas mileage is great, I went from a 2002 Mazda 626 to this CR-V and the cost to fill up and drive the CR-V is only $3.00 more every two weeks. Outside of the road noise from the stock tires the ride is great. Plenty of space for passengers and packages.
Better Stock tires. A V-6 options for those who need or want a V-6.
