Me too! The first vehicle forum I ever joined was Edmunds. I should go see if I can still login.I've been a fan of Edmunds since before computers. They used to put out a paperback yearly........:thumb:
LOL, they also got the dreaded 2017 Broken Shifter Button, luckily it's like a 5 min fix. We had ours replaced when I noticed it getting loose. Seems resolved as it's not broken again and no reports from the 2018-2019 models having the problem. I like the comment that they just can't seem to let go of it as it does everything so well, and they already have nearly 30k miles on their long term tester.
Well, I now own a 2019 CX-5 and I'm not at all "pissed" that Edmunds prefers the CR-V over it. It's no surprise to me that the CR-V checks more boxes for the majority of people buying these CUV's. They've mastered the art of maximizing interior space in a compact footprint, while maintaining excellent fuel mileage. If it weren't for a single plaguing issue some owners are experiencing, it would probably be in our garage. Because of that issue, we expanded our scope, which included the Mazda we now own. I never would have even considered looking at Mazda last year at this time, so I'm pretty grateful for this forum enlightening me.Another victory for our CRV. So glad I chose this vehicle over any other. The Mazda fanboys must be pissed:banana:
Not sure what factor would determine "best" as we all value various features more or less... But I dont think anyone would argue against the CRV being the best bang for the buck. For the price, there is simply nothing that checks as many boxes or beats it in MPG. Trust me, I did my best to NOT purchase the CR-V, but just couldnt convince myself anything else on the market was better for my needs. The only remotely close options were the CX-5 which is too small for my needs.. or the new 2019 RAV4 which was too late(still waiting on the hybrid to show up at dealerships) and now way too expensive.What's impressive about this one is that Edmunds isn't just saying the CR-V is the best compact SUV; they are saying it's the best SUV, period (non-luxury at least).
Same thing for Motor Trend. Let's add up all the awards:What's impressive about this one is that Edmunds isn't just saying the CR-V is the best compact SUV; they are saying it's the best SUV, period (non-luxury at least).
This is not a Subaru forum, or do you think 13th is a good position for Honda?Looks like Consumer Reports got it right! Also chosen as the best company!
I think the 13th is a little on the high side considering the problems! The fact that JD Powers is all about initial quality and reliability and to rate them as they did is hilarious. I have removed JD Powers from my auto favorites for sure.This is not a Subaru forum, or do you think 13th is a good position for Honda?
