We really like pretty much everything about the car, including the magic seats, fuel economy, and easy to drive. A huge issue that the dealer is unable to solve is the extremely annoying vibration in the front passenger seat while the car is running and parked. The dealership folks said it's something that we have to learn to live with and is an issue in the HRV. I believe that Honda should provide a recall repair for this aggravating seat vibration.
The 2018 HR-V EX-L with Navigation I purchased, has all the safety features I wanted, is the perfect size for me as I wanted an Suv easy to maneuver, making parking easy; gas mileage is good for a vehicle of this size. I love the interior features (leather-trimmed seats, leather wrapped steering wheel, display audio with navigation, voice recognition, multi-view rear camera, etc.),and the exterior has a sharp look. I chose the color Modern Steel. The ride is comfortable. Oh, the automatic climate control system is outstanding- makes it comfortable for back seat riders!
Don't bother reading the "Expert Reviews" floating all over the Internet. Go test drive the HRV. If you like it, buy it. In fact, if you like the HRV, you will soon love it. The car will grow on you within a couple days, and soon become your new best friend. The engine is built in Japan, and has among the best long term reliability of any on earth. If you live in north country, get the All Wheel Drive (AWD). It gives awesome control in ice and snow. We have an 18 year old Honda with AWD, and its reliability is the #1 reason we choose Honda again. To add, our HRV gets 29-30 mpg in city driving. Pretty awesome.
