Good Transition

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


We had VW's for 42 years. When our local dealer closed without any notice we looked for something closer but still reliable. Reviews of the CR-v mentioned a stiff ride but we always appreciated the firmness of the VW's. Reviews mentioned the lack of massive horsepower. We were used to that. We test drove one and bought the same day. The transition from auto to SUV (CUV) was seamless.

Best Features

I like the automobile feel. Although low on horsepower, the 5 speed automatic makes seamless shifts to keep the engine working where it does its best. The stiff ride and road noise is bearable because of our past vehicles being similar. If I came from an Escalade I might be disappointed.

Worst Features

I feel there is enough horsepower but don't see the better mileage one might expect. We average 22 mpg as conservative drivers.
