I admit I thought this car looked sharp the first time I saw it on TV, so I don't get why it's gotten such negative reviews in this regard. I've also gotten many compliments on it from family, friends & even my parking garage attendant! That aside - I was torn between the look of a sedan and the convenience of an SUV/crossover. For me this was a great compromise. I do a lot of camping & all my gear fits well in the cargo area, with room leftover. I don't mind that it's not as large as other cars in its class. I do love the hidden storage area - great for hiding my laptop. The interior is extremely comfy and roomy. Sound system buttons are a bit large & scattered, but not a big deal, and the sound quality is excellent. The rest of the interior is very polished. I test drove a Venza & the dash looked like cheap grained plastic - it also did not drive as smoothly as the Crosstour. The back view took a bit of getting used to, but I can honestly say I have no problems with it now. I love the fact that the sideview mirrors tilt down when in reverse as well. It has good acceleration & decent power - all my previous cars were sticks so I was afraid I'd miss the zip of a manual transmission, but I've been pleased with the way this responds. The only drawback for me is the mileage. I have the 4WD so I've been getting between 22 and 24 mpg; probably expected for this type of car but I used to get 34 mpg so it's been a bit of sticker shock at the gas pump. Yes, it should have a trip computer, and it should also have an auto trunk release, but for me these are minor concessions. I'd also like to see a sunroof that auto closes when the key is turned off (with optional override) - I had this in my Corolla and it was a great feature. I priced the Nissan Murano and Ford Edge, and with all of the options I wanted, both were at least 4 grand more then the Crosstour EX-L. And the Crosstour, in my opinion, is more luxurious looking than the Edge. All in all, I love this car & wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone! Am interested to see how it responds in snow.

This Crosstour is my first Honda and not likely my last. It's the first car I have ever owned that I have caught people walking around and looking at in the parking lot as I approach (happened three times in three months), looking at the car as they drive by, and commenting at the drive-thru window on how great the car looks. And no, they aren't staring in disgust -- they love the looks of the car. So, the reviews that I read before buying this car that trashed its styling are as far off-base in terms of actual human reaction to the looks of the car as could be. The car handles very well, although it's no speed demon. It's acceleration is fine, don't get me wrong, but its styling suggests a more aggressive power plant. However, I am more grateful for the better gas mileage than I lament the lack of blow-me-into-the-back-seat power. As far as gas mileage, I am averaging 26.4 with 75% of my first 7,000 miles being highway driving. Not bad, but not great. The only complaint I have is the lack of a driver-information center that includes fuel consumption and mileage information. It seems that a car with an electronic display (monochrome) for temperature, compass heading, and audio information should at least be able to tell you your average mileage, remaining miles to empty, fuel used, etc. Also, the outside temp can only be displayed at the expense of the odometer reading or trip odometer. Kind of lame. The seats are very comfortable, the leather is good quality, the layout of the instruments is fine, and the organization of the climate control and audio is pretty good (although a bit two spread out for me). The back seat is very rooming and comfortable, but there should be a power outlet (preferably an AC outlet) for the iPod and phone users. Speaking of iPods, the usb connection is great to have, but its location in the bottom, back portion of the center console is puzzling and awkward. The sound system is surprisingly good, by the way -- best sound system of any car I've owned. What I am most confused by, however, is the attempts to label this vehicle in such a way as to suggest it is a crossover. It's not. Quite simply, this is a large four-door hatchback with elevated ground clearance, large wheels and 4WD (on my model). It has far more in common with an Accord than with a Pilot. It's a car, it's a car, it's a car. Nothing else, but a really, really cool looking car that is very enjoyable to drive.

Love my Crossstour. Drove an Infiniti SUV for a long time, dreaded trading it but the Crosstour has made me "forget" that car. The interior is roomy, my two 6'4" sons fit beautifully in it with plenty of leg room front and back and headroom is amazing. Alot of safety features, wider and lower base so I don't fear rollover as much. Drives beautifully in the snow. Lots of storage. Handles smoothly. GPS, XM radio, and USB ports along with sub woofers make the sound system wonderful. Exterior is uniquely styled which makes every one want to know what it is and when people get a closer look, they love it!! Have read the reviews about the grille but think it looks good. I get alot of compliments. Looks classy but can be individually styled with accessories to be more "outdoorsy" in appearance. Honda offers alot of versatility so the owner can choose how their crosstour will look depending up preference. Only complaint I have is the mileage could be better . Honda also takes care of their owners, with wonderful service and response. Definitely would do it all over again.

This is my first Honda. My previous car was Mercedes-Benz, E class. So, it was a hard decision to switch Mercedes to Honda. I would never imaged that Crosstour will be so great car to drive. I like almost everything in Crosstour, off course there are some things better on Mercedes, like u turn and mirror back view are much better on Mercedes. However, I like Honda Crosstour, even I have EX model, the base one, front wheel drive. Gas millage seems much better in the city, if I compare to my Mercedes E320, 4MATIC, (21 gallon-270milles in city) so on, I have no problems. I got lease for $300 per month+$400 down. Great deal for a great car.

Purchased my 2010 Honda Crosstour EXL/4WD 5 months ago and love it! I have had Pilots and Accords in the past which have been very reliable, but this car with the 4WD goes thru the snow without hesitation. Very comfortable to drive and ride in. Like the stow away area in the back. Do appreciate the gas mileage and the way it handles. Great fun to drive.

It's been one week since I purchased my wife a new 2010 Crosstour left-over. This is a vehicle that you need to see in person, pictures do not do it justice. We traded in her 2002 Lexus RX300, the Lexus was a fantastic vehicle. My wife and myself are very impressed with the ride and quality of the Crosstour. We can not comment on the reliabilty of the Crosstour yet, it's only been one week. Our Crosstour is fully loaded minus the navigation that option was not worth the extra money to us. When you compare the Crosstour to the Accord side by side it's obvious that the Crosstour is a larger and beefier vehicle. We look forward to taking the Crosstour on a road trip! I don't think we will be dissapointed!

We purchased the car on Sept. 8 and have driven it 13,000 miles. It is March 3 today. We purchased the 2WD to get the 2 mpg benefit. The seats are very comfortable. The car drives like a dream. It has good performance, if you do not want a race car. We greatly enjoy the increased carrying capacity and my wife likes the idea of having a car instead of a boxy station wagon. We were told the rear visibility was not good, but at 5'6" I have not found that to be true. It is also to change the oil. We have had several Honda's with the oil filter on the back side of the 4 cylinder engine. The Crosstour's filter is on the front, making it easy to change. This is our 5th Honda. One was totaled, one was sold and is still being driven by a man who goes 50 miles to work. We still own three.

KING OF THE ROAD... I used to own a Toyota FJ Cruiser.... I drove only Toyota's & nothing else for the last 30 years.. I had no regrets with the Toyota's except that in the end, I just got tired of them. Mind you, I still have a Corolla 1998 with 380,000 KM on it, with the same engine & transmission. Suddenly, I have become very tired of the Toyota's...Bought a brand new Accord Crosstour EX-L V6 4WD 2010 on 1st Oct 2010...Now the balance of my life in this world will be with Honda's...For a few thousand dollars I did not go for the one with Navigation, now I am deeply regretting it, but not for long, I am definitely going for a new one with the NAV Package....Crosstour has amazing power & superb road handling & holding....I do not see cowboys in Beamers / Audi's cutting me off anymore.... You will never go wrong with this car or for that matter any of the Japanese Car Makers. Cheers

I love the 4-wheel drive. This car is very secure in all weather: dry, rain, and especially deep Michigan snow where I live. The interior is very well laid out and although the radio controls seems "busy" at first they are easy to master. No problems of any kind in the first 3,000 miles. Mileage averaging 18-21 (regular) overall, not quite what I had hoped for. But when I need the V-6 it really rocks so I guess that is worth it.

My last few cars have been SUV's and Wagons. I thought I would go back to a sedan this time. Then I saw the Crosstour and found out I could have the sedan with the utility of an SUV/Wagon. The Crosstour has good power. The ride is superior. It has all the features just about anyone could want. I have only found one flaw...Honda does not offer Free Roadside Assistance for the length of the warranty. I thought all cars came with that these days.
