Just picked up a built in Japan CR-V. I previously had a 2002 CR-V and have to say that the 2010 model is more poised, comfortable and fun to drive. I still don't understand all the criticism about acceleration. The CR-V is not and will never be a V8 Mustang. It definitely has enough pickup to get you where you want to go comfortably and is agile enough to keep up with the more aggressive drivers you find here in Miami. I don't care what the statistics, pundits or Honda says. The vehicles built in Japan definitely have an edge in quality and fit and finish. Overall, we're extremely satisfied.
I like the look of the steering wheel and center stack. Radio has a nice rich sound. And it cruises comfortably and quietly on the highway
Like everyone else, I'd rather see 175 lbs. of torque then a contrived 180HP. But as I mentioned the car's engine is more then adequate for everyday use.
