Went from an 08 Odyssey LX to the CRV EX. This is my 3rd Honda. I've always loved how Honda engines rev up so smoothly. This one is great, and shifts quickly.
It's ride is firm, but normal for an SUV. Lots of storage in back, and plenty of leg room for all.
Really like the backup camera with 3 viewing angles. The quick flip down rear seats are very easy to use. The moon roof doesn't hinder headroom due to a height adjustable driver's seat.
The seats could be larger and more padded. For an EX model it's lacking a glove box light, a windshield upper tint, and the privacy glass tint should be darker.
A satellite radio should be standard on the EX. The radio/info system is way too complex to use.
