I have had the CR-V for a year. I REALLY like it. BUT I was dissappointed to find out that I have to buy new tires after only 1 year. The original tires got cupped because they have the LOWEST possible wear-rating of 360. So, keep this in mind when buying. Otherwise, I am very satisfied with the CR-V.
The all-wheel drive performs very well in harsh winter conditions with a lot of snow and ice. Comfortable ride (just a little noisy). It looks cool, in my opinion. Love that it is high off the ground so I don't have to worry about something getting scratched or damaged when I park.
They could be sold with better quality tires. Something could be done to improve the shock absorption. That would probably make them less noisy, too.
