My wife steered me towards this vehicle to replace a Town and Country which was getting long in the tooth.
I balked at the SUV thing for a long time and now realize I may have been in error thinking this way.
I needed a vehicle that would tow a light utility trailer and get reasonable gas mileage.
Just got back from a trip to Florida from mid Missouri.
Best mileage was 31 on the highway, worst was 27 in town driving.
Comfortable at highway speeds, nimble and responsive when a truck came into our lane without warning.
Purchased without waiting for the new RAV 4 to become available and not sorry (we have a Camry so I am not anti-Toyota).
Glad Honda builds this.
Looks, Gas mileage, All Wheel Drive for Missouri winters, Heated Seats, and Radio/electronic functions.
Can use iPhone/iPad.
Standard features on each model made our decision easier.
Dual climate zones and controls.
Size of area with rear seat folded.
Cons: Price of dealer accessories.
I purchased genuine Honda accessories on line for a considerable savings.
Wish it had some type of lane avoidance feature like Ford/Mazda instead of funny driver side rearview mirror.
Did not purchase Navigation option, Honda wants $150 per year to update maps, for that price I can purchase a new Garmin each year.
