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.
It's a size-conscious SUV. Good-sized cargo area with enough room for small furniture, passenger areas are compact without feeling cramped. Driver's seat has easy access to all controls.
One strange thing about my car is that the mileage has been dropping like a rock since I got it. I make a lot of trips on the same 180-mile stretch of highway. When I first got the car I was averaging 30-32 MPG on that route, now I'm getting about 22 MPG 5 months later. No idea what's causing it.
