I agree completely with sasi42389 above. Couldn't agree more. I bought a new 2014 CRV EX-L and after 3 months and 3K miles I came to the same conclusions except for the radio. The EX-L radio upgrade is good. To mitigate the road noise I had to insulate the doors and whole flooring, firewall to rear, with a b-quiet sound deadening material. That helped a lot but did not completely cure. Next I have to try doing the wheel wells. Wind noise is still a pain. I just drove a 600 mile round trip and found I was tired afterwards from the noise and seating comfort. As a comparison, I once did the same trip in a rental Altima and found I could still go dancing! In contrast my wife loves the car and notices nothing. For me the CRV is fine for short trips, puttzing around town but for long trips and touring, for-get-about-it. What's important to You in a car? To each his own.Report it
