Love My Car — Love my Cr-v, there is no way i would have chosen another car even if i could go back and buy all over again. I try to take good care of it and keep it looking great at all times!

What I Expect From A Honda. — This new design is much more refined , has Bluetooth , Navigation and rear camera. I hope it will be as reliable as the 2006 we are selling. Long term we shall see how the Electronics hold up. It is not as solid in winter driving as our 2006 CRV.

Pros

Very stylish, great fuel economy for AWD SUV, roomy, comfortable ride,  many convenience features.

Cons

Lacks the cargo capacity of an actual truck.  For example, I can't put a half ton of dirt in the back.

Stylish And Sleek — We love this car/SUV and my wife doesn't want to get rid of it. We love the AWD feature for driving in bad weather. It does great in the snow and on wet surfaces. Don't know what it would be like off road, as it never has been.

Pros

very comfortable ride, hugh improvement over the 2006 model.

Stereo has AUX in.

fold down rear seats with a pull of a lever

low entry hatch and improved stylings

Cons

EPA mileage is not obtainable, getting a fixed 23MPG for mix driving.
26 MPG best seen when driving at a steady 70-75MPH speed.

Wife says "the side mirrors stick out too much".

Bluetooth feature limited to receiving text and phone calls, anything else forgot it.  (somehow my mazda is able to handle any audio over bluetooth, but the Honda doesn't.)

Most Value In The Compact Suv Class — The number one reason for buying was this model's reliability record. The improve styling and ride comfort were just unexpected pluses. I would recommend this model against anything else in the cross-over class. A very safe and reliable choice! Not sure why there's a 40 word limit required in the review section.
