I previously owned a 2002 CR-V (which I was also very happy driving), and this vehicle replaced it. The 2014 gets great fuel mileage - around 25.6 MPG on average for me - I'm happy for that! With just 4 cylinders, it is still peppy enough to handle on-ramps to interstates with ease. I haul musical instruments, music and equipment to gigs and rehearsals and love that the back seats fold down with the easy pull of a lever from the "trunk." The front console also works well for me. My purse fits in the compartment next to me - within easy reach. And I like having the Bluetooth capability for phone calls and listening to music. And I get compliments on its appearance. It is a very comfortable car all around!
As reported in another review, I discovered a drive train vibration when accelerating 20-30 mph, but the Honda Dealer found a service bulletin regarding an axle design issue, and the front axle was replaced at no cost which completely solved the issue. In 20,000 miles, I have had no stalling or hesitation issues as mentioned in another review.

I feel confident that I can rely on this car to start each time and get me where I am going with no trouble. It drives well, sits comfortably enough for my long legs, has ample storage space, and is built with a chassis that is high enough off the ground that I do not have to worry about major damage from all of the potholes and high speed bumps on streets in DC. My Honda has been very reliable over the years needing only normal maintenance.
