Purchased As New
I bought the 2008 Honda to replace an older (1999 Toyota Rav 4). At the time of purchase my commute was 220 miles round trip and I needed a reliable AWD vehicle that would handle well in winter. This vehicle fit the bill and was the most comfortable and best equipped for the price. I tested Toyota Rav 4, Lexus IS 250, Subaru Forester and Toyota Matrix before deciding on the Honda. I did purchase an additional set of winter tires, primarily for the hill climb in my own driveway. It has a steep grade and is narrow, the tires gave me the traction needed for Wisconsin winters. The only downside for the winter tires is the TPM sensor which needs to be calibrated separately each time I swap tires since the winter tires are on rims with sensors. I average 26-28 mpg even with the winter tires and never get lost thanks to the navigation system.
My only con is the seat adjustments, I am short and wish the seat height adjustment was a little greater. In the grand scheme of things - that is minor. Seat heaters and driver side lumbar heat is great for long commutes.
