Dealer told me how great it was then after I bought it they said I should just leave it off.Reduces throttle response, changes the CVT transmission programming, lowers the AC blower and sets it to recirculation mode.
For me, makes the car feel sluggish and I don't really see any improvements in mpg.

What you are describing is the ambient meter which operates independently of the eco mode button.The eco button:
On the upper dash a thin line will go green when you keep what the car feels is the best way we should drive to conserve fuel and power.
For example if you got a lead foot and love going fast then you're going to be using all that power for zipping around. So in order for you to learn to drive sensibly you do your best to keep the pedal soft less pressure and keep to the green
Don't car go in sport mode and be done conserving.
It is something I tried once and will likely never use again. There is a good explanation of what it does in the owners manual. But it sucks the fun of driving this vehicle right out the window for little perceived benefit.What is the Eco button for? I just bought a 2017 CR-V EXL and the salesman sort of glossed over this feature. He was a young kid and I don't think he understood the button himself.
Thank you so much,
Do some reading from link below to learn more on your CR-V. Lots to learn, as I have found out.What is the Eco button for? I just bought a 2017 CR-V EXL and the salesman sort of glossed over this feature. He was a young kid and I don't think he understood the button himself.
Thank you so much,
No. Those are not the only reasons you could lose traction, i.e. Loose gravel, oily road. The computer controls when the AWD and traction control is needed from the being able to monitor conditions. What you would be turning of is the ability to monitor for the need for traction control.
Traction control is part of the Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) system, that stabilizes the car during cornering (prevents understeer or oversteer). The button on the left side controls both systems. You cannot turn off traction control without turning off VSA.
