Very comfortable, drives great, no major blind spots, trusted Honda name, high safety rating, reliable, stylish. I love the size. It's large enough to haul things if I need to, but it's small enough to easily park just about anywhere. I don't feel like I'm driving a large vehicle.
Roomy but reasonable
2012 Honda CR-VJ - Nashville, TN04/07/2015
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.
We use this for travel to Florida from Northern Virginia as well as shorter vacation trips (Rehoboth Beach, Myrtle Beach, Hilton Head, Philadelphia, etc.) and general local travel. It is remarkably roomy and comfortable. Although the motor is "only" a four, I have had not problem getting to eighty mph on the way south and logging 30+ miles per gallon doing it. My model has navigation which means it also has nine speakers and a 300 watt amplifier. The sound is great. The navigation system has been very easy to use and accurate (I did update to the 2016 software). I highly recommend this family vehicle for travelers.
