I've had the CR-V for 3months and 5000+ miles. It has a relatively comfortable ride, a Honda typical handling which is excellent. The noise level is very good. And the engine is responsive. But the sun visors are a joke, it can not telescope so it can not shield your eyes from the sun when you swing it to the side!!! The back seats can not recline so it will be
a torture for the passengers on long trips. I would not buy this car if I have a chance to do it over again.
Comfortable ride, good handling, responsive powertrain, comfortable head rest (do not push my head forward like so many other car's head rests).
Telescoping sun visors.
Fully reclinable rear seat backs (as much as possible but at least 60 degrees from vertical line).
Put the power driver seat w/power lumbar support in the EX trim.
