Where to begin?
My wife and I bought this car to replace her '04 AWD V6 Honda CRV.
She was originally looking at the coupe but after seeing it in person changed her mind.
She test drove this model and liked it.
The hatch provides great functionality and since it is the two of us didn't need a large vehicle.
After driving this car a week we both have grown even more on it.
It is really fun to drive, think of go-kart handling as its main selling point.
The mileage is definitely better as well in comparison.
Going from regular to premium still provides a savings cost in our situation.
Also, super easy to park!
We opted for the auto trans in ours btw.
Handling, no body roll, sport cloth seats with heating, panoramic sun roof, mpg, warranty with maintenance.
Sound dampening is all, definitely upgrade the sound system to the Harmon Kardon setup. Makes a big difference when listening to the radio and taking phone calls in the car.
