2012 Honda CR-V EX-L 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


We traded our 2007 Honda CR-V EX-L in for a new 2012 Honda CR-V EX-L after doing due diligence and exploring all the other new models. Like many others looking for a high content, high value CUV, It's really difficult to beat the combination that the CR-V offers. With 1,400+ miles on ours now, the gas mileage has averaged 31mpg both highway & city. We've seen as high as 38mpg. The 4cyl does fine, and living in TN we have a good mix of hills and valleys with no issues passing on the freeway. Both front & back seat space is really good, and we continue to marvel at how spacious it is on the inside compared to small footprint on the outside. Fit and finish are very good.

Best Features

Overall comfort is improved over our last model especially the front seats. Gas mileage is very good. Upgraded electronics are a big improvement. seat heaters, dual zone AC, and sunroof are great. The Reliability, Utility, and high re-sale value. (Honda Trademarks) are all in place.

Worst Features

A bit quieter than our last one, but not as much as we hoped for. Honda needs to focus on the road noise issue. We miss the shelf in the back like our last one especially for carrying groceries, and for traveling. Miss the sliding seats, however the new easy folding seat handles make up for it somewhat.
