SEATS & CARGO Are Disappointing
By kirbyfred on


2011 Honda CR-V EX-L 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Leather seats here are a joke- look and feel like vinyl, v. lo quality; "leatherette" maybe? And sides and back of seats are clearly vinyl, leather is seating area only- cheaply done.
Heated seats work poorly, v. disappointing.
Leather and heat in my old BMW 325 seats are far superior- - Honda blew it here, and the "leather"/heated seats are clearly not worth the extra cost for upgrade.

Cargo: rear seats do not fold forward far enuff; they leave 6" of dead space between front and back seat area- -
my skinny road bike does not fit well in here.
Would be nice if rear seats could be removed & reinserted easily.

Best Features

Automatic All temp dual heating/cooling system is nice. Stereo upgrade is decent.

Worst Features

More nooks for carrying stuff in console area; Improved heat coils in heated seats; Decent quality leather in seats, and more of it. Better designed cargo space- more hooks and tie downs; removable rear seats, or at least seats that fold flush to floor or flush to the front seat backs- too much wasted spacein cargo area. Overall, Honda really disappointed me with their top-of-the line CRV-EX-L- - left sour taste; Honda can do better, for the price they charge on this car.
