I brought this Black CR-V about four months ago and its been a great vehicle. Great gas mileage much better than my other two CR-V which was a 2002 and 2006. I have been getting 24 to 27 mpg in city and 29 to 34 mpg on highway sometimes as high as 37 on highway. Its drive very well and very smooth. Its fun to drive too, more fun to drive than my older CR-V. I took the steel wheels and tires off and added a much nicer 17 inch Alloy wheels with 225/65R17 sizes tires and its looks much nicer from Discount Tire Co The Honda Dealerships are so expensive to buy new Alloy wheels.
I love everything about the new CRV but did not like the steel wheels but replace them with Alloy wheels and much happier now with the new wheels. I like the black inside and outside and there is a lot of nice other colors. Very comfortable to drive and easy to get great gas mileage. Very comfortable on long road trips. I like the back up camara and Temp display on dash and what is the current gas mileages. I check on my calculator when its time to fill up with gas by putting in how many miles and use of gallons of gas and its almost the exactly the same as what the dash id saying in mpg just to make sure. Overall very please with the new CRV and plans to keep its a very long time.
I wish that Alloy wheels is standard on LX models from now on. The EX models always has Alloy wheels as standard. Honda just started doing that on the Accord so maybe soon Alloy wheels will be standard on all Honda Models. Other than that no improvements is needed.
Has anyone else received an electric shock while inserting their 2012 CRV key in the ignition?
I have and my finger is still numb and painful a month later.
I thought I was becoming more economical when I traded my 2007 BMW X-3 in for this Honda.
I am averaging 17 miles per gallon.
The navigation system is a joke, I have been in a Staples parking lot with the navigatin telling me the closest store is 364 miles away!!!
Don't even try to find a Radio Shack.
The voice operation is sporatic and was designed to cause frustraion and annoyance, which it will do with ease...the only thing it does with ease.
2012 Honda CR-V EX-L 4dr SUV AWD w/Rear Entertainment (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Disappointed after 1.5 months of ownership! Traded in a 07 4runner and took a huge step down. The vehicle is quite on smooth roads but try some rougher pavement and the noise is clear. Bought this thing for gas mileage and I'm averaging 22.4. Not even close to advertised. Test drive one at night on a dark road out of the city and check out the high beams. Headlights are Horrible! Mine has some issue with the electrical system. My lights almost blink off when I come to an idle. Hope it does decent in the snow! It sounds and feels cheap! I don't have enough room to talk about the dealer. I put up with a bad dealer to buy into a quality, great gas mileage car and man did I get burned!!!
My little girl loves the rear entertainment! Wife loves the heated seats. Nice looking design. I hope they put the money into safety devices that I can't see, so safety.
MPG! Headlights! Electrical system! Rear air conditioning ducts. More sound dampening.
We purchased our silver CR-V EX in June and now have 5500 miles on it.
We took it on a 2400 mile trip, which included 3 days of driving around Denver, and for the entire trip got a terrific 32.1 mpg driving between 65 -70 mph.
We find the vehicle to be of very high quality in design and manufacture. Haven't been back to our dealer for a single problem.
We love the tight solid body, the backup camera, the handling, and my wife loves the maneuverability aound town, as well as the ease of lifting the rear hatch. Some have said they'd like more power, but we find performance to be quite adequate.
We really couldn't be more satisfied with the vehicle.
Fit and finish are excellent.
gas mileage, backup camera, trip computer, handling and stability, styling, cargo and back seat room.
The front seat bottom is a bit too short and fails to support under my thighs as well as I'd like.
I compare it to my 2011 Ram 1500 pickup, whose seats are so wonderfully supportive and comfortable.
Other than that, I can't fault the vehicle in any way.
Traded in a 2009 CRV (EX) for a 2012 EX-L with Nav.
Got a great price for the trade-in (CRVs hold their value nicely) and am loving the new one.
Getting about 23 mpg, which is what was promised.
Comfortable ride and smooth handling
Love the center console (much better than the table thingy in the 2009)
The Navigation is a life-saver. When I travel to new cities, the Navi is a major "de-stressor"
Love taking this car grocery shopping - easy to get groceries in and out (lots of room!).
Handling, sound system (XM RADIO!), Navi and leather.
All cars/trucks need improved mileage, but this one does OK for an AWD
