I think they all have flaws. Lots of info on this forum about the Vibration issues......one just has to decide what their tolerances/risks are....Loved our 2011 EX-L.....and probably would have bought a 2016 CRV touring due to liking our 2011 so much...and the 2016 CRV to us was rather a bland drive.....but we would take bland and no issues over excitement and issues,lol.....so was not an easy choice to walk away from the CRV. On the bright side, I bought a Honda lawnmower yesterday,lol We do have 2 new 2016 Subaru's....Outback and Forester and very happy...but again, there are some issues (not with ours though)....Not all CRVs are affected, but the vibration issue with some do not appear right away. Some the vibration issue is very minor, where others people have stated they feel ill..like constantly driving over rumble strips. For us too much of a risk to take, don't have $35000 to risk on a vehicle,lol Best of luck in your decisionOuch! A couple of years ago I bought my Subaru legacy and got hit with the infamous steering wheel shimmy. lol! Do we now have cars that have no flaws?
CX5 had a recall/stop sale on their 2016s for a bit..something to do with the gas line......We test drove the CX5....found it very peppy, but bland inside (for us)....Was missing a few things wife wanted in her car such as a power rear gate..... One really needs to make a list of all the cars in the segment and then go test drive them.....visit forums and find the faults.....had never even sat in a Subaru, and now have 2,lolThis is probably not the best place to ask but I wonder if anyone who had considered Mazda CX-5 or had switched to CX-5 from CR-V would like to chime in.
