Overall I very much like my CR-V. Before this I had a '02 Saturn Vue, and although I definitely miss it (I miss the control of the manual tranny), I prefer the CR-V. It has great acceleration for a 4cyl. engine, handles well, and the fit and finish can't be beat for the price.
My favorite thing about the CR-V is the style. It is a very nice looking SUV.
Although it's a great car, nothing is perfect. I'm a bit disappointed about the mileage. Currently I'm getting 22.8mpg, that's with 4K miles, mostly HW. Also, the brakes are too sensitive. The car stops with the slightest touch of the break pad. Finally, I wish the cargo area was a little taller.
