Talked with a friend today. He traded it in for a Hyundai Santa Fe. He had tire problems with the CRV - 3 sets of tires in 60,000 kil or about 37,000 miles - he tried to get the dealer to put in rear camber adjustments but they were not Honda parts. He also said the seat was uncomfortable. He traded in for the Santa Fe which he is very happy with - much quieter and more comfortable and gets about the same highway gas mileage as the CRV he traded in. He was very unhappy with the local service manager. He is loving the Santa Fe. Honda really needs listen to customers and correct know problems - they are losing sales this way.
