I've had my CR-Z a couple weeks and I still grin when I get into the car. It's a blast to drive with driver selectable Econ, Normal, or Sport mode that changes the shift points of the CVT along with the boost from the Integrated Motor Assist (electric motor). The paddle shifters are great for spirited driving in the curves or around town. I'm getting 36-37 MPG with a lead foot in mixed driving. The HID lights, fog lights, and outside heated mirrors are nice features in a vehicle in this price range. The CR-Z has the best Audio System I've heard in a Honda with 360 watts, 7 speakers including a Subwoofer, and a USB cable to plug in my Flash Drive with my MP3's. The seats are super comfortable combined with the telescoping tilt steering wheel making it easy to get the driving position perfectly adjusted. No real complaints other than getting used to the pause at stop lights when you take your foot off the brake and step on the gas. I understand that building a true Sports Car and a Hybrid that gets great fuel economy are polar opposites. You can't have one without sacrificing the other. Yet that is exactly what Honda has done. Honda has blended the 2 and brought back memories of the old CR-X all at the same time. Great Job HONDA!
