The CR-V cabin and body are roomy without being too big--a great vehicle size for a small family. It gets excellent gas mileage, and rides smoothly. Like my previous Honda, it is reliable and requires virtually no work beyond routine maintenance. I was slightly disappointed in the cargo space. I could slide a stroller very easily into the trunk of my Civic, and I expected at least that much depth in the CR-V; however, I have to put the stroller in sideways, which is a little inconvenient when wrangling a toddler because I can't do it with one hand like I could in my sedan. It does have a blindspot that took some getting used to.
I've always liked Hondas. This is my fourth Honda and my second CR-V. I like the roominess since I am a Ham operator and have to carry quite a bit of gear when I am deployed to an event. Also, it is a comfortable car to drive. And, I liked the fact that I didn't have to haggle. They give you a price, if you like it you buy it, if you don't you don't. And, they have a good supply of lots of different cars. I bought mine the first day I went there. My previous car had been totaled in a freeway accident, so I needed a car fast.
I've had several cars over the years, and this car is my ABSOLUTE favorite! I had purchased a brand new 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander sport, and while I loved the car at first, it really lacked a lot of the features, sophistication, and handling that I love about my CRV. I'm a woman who is 5'11", and I prefer having a crossover at the very least, because I don't like rolling out of the car. I love the height of the seats, the room in the back seats and the HUGE amount of cargo space in the back. As a 4-cylinder, it really picks up and handles really well. I would love having a V6, but I love that this car not only conserves fuel naturally, but the ECO feature allows me to be fuel efficient and fill up my tank every couple weeks!
