My little singing CRV
I love my CRV Hybrid. It is roomy, comfortable, dependable and safe. My grandchildren are messy and it is so easy clean. We are all very happy with my little singing Hybrid.
Pros outweigh cons. Would buy it again.
Likes: Reliability, short turning radius, front and rear seating is comfortable and spacious. Ride is fine for us. Adaptable cruise is GREAT, except with snow or even rain (sometimes) it is disabled. Dislikes: Road noise pretty noticeable on many roads...I suspect tires. Speaking of (Hankook) tires, vehicle has 25k on it and tires are pretty worn already. Tires are rated for 70k when I shop...good luck on that. Center console not designed well imo. Floor mats started pulling snaps up almost immediately (driver's side). And one other thing (my fault)...I assumed car this well equipped (and pricy) would have backup sensors. IT DOES NOT. You'll have to go to Touring for that. Guess I should have checked. Would buy again, but might bite the bullet and get a Touring.
Many Yessses and plenty of annoyances.
Almost everything is very good to great. However the user interface is quite a bit annoying with several glitches. There is no tachometer. There is no engine temp or oil pressure gauge. You can use the left paddle to add electrical braking, but it doesn't stay enabled and you can't turn it off with the paddle. The gas gauge does not have any gradations and there is no full or empty tic marks and the intermediate steps shrink so it's hard to judge how much gas you have. There are far too many display pages an at least half of them are meaningless and useless. The radars are unreliable. As is lane-departure. The radio takes several seconds to boot up and the buttons for switching from satellite to AM/FM are inscrutable. The heating/AC controls are hard to use, being split between physical buttons and touch-screen text buttons. Leg room is limited in the back. The dealer added $900 in unwanted trinkets worth about $35. The gas filler is the capless type that looks fragile and leak-prone. The hood and gas-cap releases are unreachable for anybody over 210 pounds or 6-foot-2. Some of the stalks swing and some twist and one does both. There are six misc buttons to the lower left that are hard to see and impossible to understand the pictographs on them. There is no way to tell where the corners or the bumpers of the car are. The rear camera gives a rather distorted view which requires a lot of brain-work to interpret. The user's guide is about 350 pages of 3-point helvetica. Gray text on light-gray paper. Unreadable due to length and font size and colors. I can't figure out how to keep the rear doors from locking. One of the MPG displays is useless, it shows instantaneous MPG which is meaningless, showing infinity if you lift your foot off the gas and showing zero at stoplights. Smoothness and acceleration are really good, as is the responsiveness of the brakes and steering. Almost drives like a sports car. We're going to keep it even though I am going tsk-tsk all the time while driving it.
