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.
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!
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.
