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.
This is my second CR-V. My 1st one was a 2006 and it's still going strong. My 2011 has everything I want. I can fold down the seats and store cargo. It has a rack for my kayak. The leather seats are perfect with warmers for cooler weather and the ride is smooth. While I was shopping, I considered another make but after comparing, I came right back to the CR-V. I may never change!
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.
