31 MPG From Albany to Riverside

2009 Honda CR-V LX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


I am a new father and traded in my Civic Coupe for a family-friendly, but fun-to-drive CR-V. On a recent trip to Albany, NY to Riverside, NJ (250 miles) I averaged 31 MPG--not too bad for a car that is a lot heavier than my 35MPG Civic. This car is great for the guy who is in his early 30's, just starting a family, and who can't see himself in a minivan or a Sedan like the Accord or Camry (too old manish and boring). I have plenty of room for all my daughter's stuff and enough left over for my passengers--even with a car seat installed. Overall, this is a great compromise between style and fun, and necessity and practicality. The CR-V guarantees I will be a Loyal Honda Owner forever!

Best Features

Cruise Control is Standard--great for fuel economy. Huge trunk. Safety, Safety, Safety! It's not a minivan!

Worst Features

These are NOT a big deal when you consider the whole package! 6-Disc Changer should not be optional. Not everyone likes iTunes and MP3s. Speedometer--use increments of 5 not 2. Some of the console storage is too small. Interior fabric could be a bit softer
