- Appearance and functionality
- Poor gas mileage in city
I have an '08 CR-V 2WD EX-L now with 1500 miles on it. I am averaging 14.7 mpg in city driving around Los Angeles and think this is way too low. I am driving on flat terrain, in moderate temperatures, with no A/C, proper tire pressure, no overly-rapid acceleration, and lots of coasting instead of braking. In short, I am doing everything I possibly can and I am still getting very poor gas mileage, far short of EPA's 2008 20 mpg rating for city driving.
Note: on my one significant highway drive so far, I averaged 27mpg, which equals the EPA 2008 mpg rating for highway driving.
If it is possible to set this characteristic aside, I do have to say I like the looks of the car and the features in the EX-L. It is moderately fun to drive and I feel safe taking my 6-month around town.
