Top-of-the-line Model w/ Navigation

ReviewOverall excellent vehicle. Honda attention to design and reliability is well-known. My only concern with a design flaw is in regard to the optional roof rack (see my note below for suggested improvement). MPG tends to vary from manufacturer ratings. Inner city = 14-15 mpg; suburban city = 20-21 (rated at 20); highway = 30-33 (rated at 27). I was pleasantly surprised with a maximum of 33 MPG highway (60-65 mph) for Interstate driving; I recommend the high-end EX-L w/ Navigation, as well as optional fog lamps, mud flaps, all-weather & cargo mats; body-side molding; & Remote starter. Avoid the base model, as it won't hold resale value - opt for the EX with leather and/or navigation.
Best Features Navigation  Voice control for audio, climate, & navigation
Worst Features Inner city MPG needs improvement;  Bluetooth for cell phones;  Create future hybrid version?  Re-design optional roof rack with crossbars running front-to-back instead of side-to-side (drag on MPG via wind resistance)  Design flip-open window on rear lift gate
