This might sound totally stupid to ask but still I want to ask. I bought CRV 2016 EXL in Aug 2016. Even though before buying I did some research on if there are any know major issues with CRV 2016, I didn't found anything related what is going to come in 2017 model. Somehow maybe I missed that. Now when 2017 is here, I feel everything has changed for good and I feel there is actually NO difference at all between 2016 and 2015 model. This totally pisses me off that I spend all that money to get a old model. Now if I try to find at my dealer if there is any option to trade, they mentioned that I might need to pay approx. 8k more to get a new one as now there are no discounts on new one and considering the depreciation on my 2016.
So wanted to know what does the experts think. Does it make any sense to go for it? Is really 2017 version that good ...mainly from acceleration standpoint and other key factors..
Also one other question I wanted to ask was, right now I am getting around 23.2 as average MPG with ECO mode turned on. I know because here temperature is pretty low (avg in 20-30's), MPG will go down. But is 23.2 acceptable. My driving is very gentle, I don't go above 70 ever and I have mix of city highway driving to be 60-40 ratio.
I just had my first service where dealership did the oil change. There I asked this and they ran the EPA on gov site and mentioned it is avg 22.9 which totally doesn't make sense.
Thanks in advance for your advice...
