I am very happy so far with my honda cr-v (2012) purchased 1 month ago. I will be going on a 1200 mile trip and will be in a better position toevaluate vehicle at end of trip. Ride and cornering is very smooth if you don't yank steering.
We have nothing but praise for this vehicle. The only things we would like to see improved is the keyless remote and the road noise. You need to be very close to the car for it to work and the road noise is very loud.
I got what I paid for with my CRV, safe/reliable/efficient transportation, with great resale value. It's my third Honda, but after driving the new Mazda CX-5 recently I'm tempted to defect to Mazda.....
Purchased June 2012. Driven over 10,000 miles. Fun to drive, comfortable, safe, reliable, with good gas mileage and lots of storage room for tools and spare parts.. I use it for personal transportation and as a work vehicle for real estate maintenance. Back up camera and maintenance minder are nice features. Replaced weak OEM headlight bulbs with X-treme power Phillips bulbs and @ 10,200 miles replaced surface cracked rear brake rotors with new , manufactured in Italy, brake rotors and new brake pads.
