Never a regret!
By al_syracuse on
2011 Honda CR-V EX-L 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Replaced a 2011 Escape (piece of junk) with this top of the line CR-V a month ago.
I have never gretted that move.
The Ford was a disaster, and I dumped it after only 9 months.
The CR-V is a solid, well built, comfortable vehicle, and the gas mileage is great.
The Escape got 18-22.
The CR-V gets 26-31.
When looking for a replacement for the Escape, I considered the RAV-4, the Subaru Outback, and the CR_V.
I disqualified the Outback immediately because the seat was so uncomfortable for me.
The RAV-4 had a good seat, but the build was less than stellar and it drove live a truck.
The CR-V was the best built of the three, and drives like a dream.
I love it.
Solid build, great looks and outstanding gas mileage.
Not comfortable, the arm rests are a joke, you can't lean on them and there is only one comfortable driving position in the CRV and that is straight back and arms straight out, awful. The dash instrumentation is dangerously complicated to adjust while driving and road noise is ever present.
