Not much extra about EX model

2013 Honda CR-V EX-L 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


CRV EX-L. It has heated leather seats. We've had hondas, Accords and Odyssey, before, which were very good vehicles: reliable, great value, good performance, comfortable, etc., so thought this would be a good choice.

Issues: headlights, tranny, radio, info screen.
Seems as though part of the headlights are blocked, and even more so with with the high-beams on.
Tranny: test drive seemed very smooth, but later noticed that when decelerating then give it gas there is good amount of delay in the acceleration. Can't you go with 6 speed?
Radio: Really? lower grad than what I had in my 1995 Accord. Why put that in top-end model.
Info screen: was this project complete?

Best Features

Improved style outside. Extremely efficient with space.

Worst Features

Put more luxury into EX-L. Radio is cheap. Interior trim is cheap. Could be a little bigger. Put in 6 speed tranny. Fix the headlights - this is reduction of functionality. Stop resting on your successes.

Totally agree especially about the inadequacy of full beam headlights.
