- Looks great, getting 24 MPG mixed driving, plenty of room
- driver seat hurts back, back seat is pretty hard too, air conditioning smells
I've had my 2008 CR-V EX-L for three weeks now. I did a lot of research and drove lots of cars. For a small SUV, this seemed to be the best deal out there -- reliability, re-sale, size, look as top reasons to get the CR-V. To get leather seats, the RAV-4 was more expensive. The Rogue had a lot more features, but felt smaller and the "sealer" was that there is a purse hook on the back of the fron passenger seat. This told me this was truly a chick car. I can feel slightly more manly in the CR-V.
We have a 2003 Accord that has been solid. It still feels news. Love it. So, another reason I went with the CR-V.
So far it's been good, but I wish I would have gotten another car. The reason: it kills my lower back to drive it -- after about 5 minutes. When I sit in the dirvers's seat, there is no lower back support, no matter how much I adjust the seat. I've tried everything. I went to the Relax the Back store and tried a bunch of options and found that raising the seat by adding a memory-foam cushion ($80) was the best option. Though, it feels really awkward sitting on that when driving the car, getting out of the car, etc. I'm 33 years old and it makes me feel 50. It also has a bump down the middle which makes it uncomfortable, groinally, though not a car issue, of course. I plan to return it, but I have no idea what I'm going to do.
I wish I would have just gotten the Toyota Prius as my conscience told me to. Could have gotten everything + bluetooth for a few hundred bucks cheaper than the CRV.
I'm 5 foot 7 and would not recommend this car to anyone around my height. I feel "stuck" with this car....read morehide
