This vehicle was thought through very well when designed. Great room for its class size. Gas mileage exceptional. I have heard a lot of negative comments about road noise. I have not experienced this road noise and feel it rides very smooth and quiet. AWD works well for normal winter and typical off road driving. Would not recommend taking it on the Rubicon trail but will hold its own on basic rough terrain. Thumbs up again Honda for a job well done.
Room, safety, reliability, resale value, and quality for your money.
Honda accessories are expensive for this vehicle. Honda should consider making an off road model pilot with upgrade suspension, ground clearance, skid plate improvements, and appearance. This may improve the comparison against the trail rated Jeep Cherokee or 4 Runner market folks.
