i talked my wife into going from a Lexus rx330 to the '13 crv, and for the most part i am happy with the decision, but there have been a few small headaches. Driving home from the dealer is realized the right front turn signal was inop, then when i got home i saw the roof rail was coming up on the rr, and 2 valve stem caps were missing. Took it to a different dealer the next day and he replaced the bulb on the drive, but i had to come back to have the roof rail replaced. So a car with under 100 miles on it has been to the dealer twice. Hopefully these little gremlins are just a fluke, and from now on its just oil changes and basic maintenance.
I love the way the car looks, we got a silver ex awd and it just looks great. The interior is nicely appointed and there is actually quite a bit of room, im 5'11'' and 240lbs and even the rear seats are roomy and comfortable. And i like the controls, everything is easy to understand and laid out very well.
