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


After driving every small ute out there, I narrowed it down to the CR-V and the Forester. The wife preferred the look of the CR-V over the Forester. Since it's primarily her car we went with the CR-V. I was most concerned about the lack of power (I drive an '09 Murano). However, it packs plenty of punch for her daily needs. It's amazing how spacious the interior feels on such a small frame. This is a perfect vehicle for driving around town, but I prefer the smooth ride of my Murano on a long drive. The handling is superb for an SUV, which makes it fun to drive. I was concerned about rear visibility w/o the backup camera, but it's fine. Make sure you check out the Forester too.

Best Features

Handling! Access (strapping in the kids and driving height). Built-in satellite radio. Fun to drive. Honda reliability.

Worst Features

Where's the bluetooth?!? Intelligent key would be nice.
