Coming from 10 years of Subaru
By square85 on
2014 Honda CR-V LX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Recently picked up a LX AWD model a few weeks ago after driving Subarus for 10 years. The Honda is much quieter and the seats are much more comfortable than my last Legacy.
The folding rear seat mechanism is slick and has come in handy a number of times already. The radio is the base unit but sounds fine to me ears when streaming bluetooth.
Now that I have the back up camera, I will never have a vehicle without it.
MPG has been round numbers 21-22 in mixed NYC driving; hope it goes a little higher once the engine breaks in more, I only have 480 miles right now.
So far very happy with the purchase and look forward to many years of ownership.
-The back up camera
-Quietness of engine
-Front view visibility
-Legibility of gauges
-Rear seat folding mechanism
-Everything lights up at night
-Maybe slightly better MPG; been averaging about 22mpg in mixed NYC driving
-Rear visibility over my shoulder is non existent and I have to rely on my mirrors when merging on the highway
-Armrest for the passenger
-Variable intermittent wipers?
-Handling isn't at tight as the Legacy
Can't really think of too many negatives.
Wanted to give an update...
3 months and 3,000 miles later...
-MPG has gone up to 23.5 in mixed driving of Brooklyn and Staten Island
-ECON mode doesn't really do anything except cause lag and show a green leaf in the dashboard
-Green lights around speedometer do actually teach "eco" driving
-Costs significantly less than my Legacy to fill up
-Lo-beams are adequate
-High-beams do almost nothing except throw the light slightly higher
-Haven't had any issues with TPMS like others have had from reading on other forums
