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


We are very pleased with our purchase. The CR-V is comfortable with sufficient room in the driver and front passenger area to not feel confined. Instrumentation is easy to read and controls are functional and easy to use. Rear cargo area is very sufficient for our needs handling a medium size dog crate with ease. Rear seating area is comfortable and very adequate for two good sized adults. We are presently getting 29.5 MPG is mixed driving. Style and quality of build is excellent.

Best Features

We enjoy driving this vehicle with good visability, handling and very adequate power. The easy "one touch" lowering of the rear seats is very handy for grocery bags and coolers. We are impressed with the easy lifting and lowering of the rear tailgate. An additional comment on the power, our most recent vehicle was powered by a 5.7 "Hemi" while not a "Hemi" the passing and cruising power of the CR-V is very adequate. Also, nice to realize nearly 30MPG with regular octane gas.

Worst Features

We purchased the EX model and are happy that we didn't get the LX. The additional $1,000-$1,500 is worth it. The Ex is very well equipped, we do think Honda should upgrade this model with a driver's power seat. Also, we agree with many other reviewers that the driver's side outside rear view mirror is dysfunctional with it's partial "extended view" glass. I would option for a regular full size mirror (if you focus on the 3/4 normal vision, you'll be fine).
