Love This Car!! — i have a 2009 EX and so far has been an excellant vehicle for the value, (mine was around $25,500.) my mileage has been about 20mpg but i live in town and haven't even taken it on a highway yet. has TONS of storage and can fit 3 26" suitcases,3 22" suitcases, plus carry ons with room to spare! i love the chrome accents on the interior and the aux. jack makes listening to my ipod through the stereo easy! (just had to get a $8.00 cord from radio shack.) i chose the black interior being a mom, no more grape juice stains for me to scrub out! i came from a V6 engine to this 4cyl. and i really thought it wasn't going to enough power for me, but thus far has been ok, with the minor exception it has a little engine noise when you start to accelerate. i test drove the Nissan Rogue before buying this car and felt like this had more power and was a lot wider, which was important to me because i wanted to downsize suv's but didn't want to feel like i was in a clown car! i would compare this to a Nissan Murano with a much smaller price tag and not quite as much engine. i also drove Honda pilots as LX pilots had a great lease deal,and fell in LOVE but found it was larger than i was looking for and didn't have as many options. the CR-V in my opinion was the perfect choice because inside and out is kind of like a scaled down pilot!

Fun Family Car, Safe And Reliable — Great car for everyone, from families with small kids or singles with lots of stuff! Handles like a car, reliable and has a great safey record. The back cargo area has a unique hard shelf that allows for groceries or other items that go in and out in the same day to be stored on top and blankets, beach chairs and other items which might stay in a car for an extended period of time.

Honda Wins Again! — Previously owned 2001 SE CRV. The 2009 XL model is greatly improved with a more quiet and smoother ride. Interior/exterior quality is what sold me versus the other competitors in this class. Gas mileage has also been improved over the 2001 model. I love driving & owning this car and I'm glad I stayed with Honda.

Best Suv — I like the way it handles curves rain or shines. it's a good looking car on the road, and in front of your house too. You get lot of stares of praise. This car is the most dependable car I have had until now.

Comfortable Driving On Long Trips. — We have put 83--- thousand miles on our CR-V in four years. It doesn't have a luxury car ride like our Lincoln. Still I love to drive it because it gets good gas mileage for a non-hybrid vehicle and the driving position is comfortable.

Navi Love — Cute, Amazingly Safe, Fun to drive, Navi system is very cool, much better than I've seen in much more expensive cars. The voice command on the navi is super cool. The car handles so well. You don't hear or feel the road or anything outside while driving. Overall, the best car I have owned.
