2.4LIn Canada the LX has a 1.5. The 2.4 is rated at 184 hp and 180 lb torque. The 1.5 is 190 hp and 179 lb torque.
I get 30 mpg for around town with summer blend gas and 33 mpg on the highway with my LX. No oil dilution problems. My CRV is a little over a year old and no problems. Very happy with it. Also the insurance premiums are very low.
As another new member here, I want to apologize for the off topic responses you have received. I guess Taylor Swift was right - haters gonna hate!Hey Everyone,
Does the CR-V LX have the same oil dilution problem that the EX and up with the turbo engine has?
A number of forum members HAVE reported OD in their 2.4s, so your statement is not categorically true.The oil dilution issue discussed in depth on this forum is only related to the 1.5L turbo engine.
All direct injection has some sort of oil dilution. The 2.4L is likely less than 5% and is nothing to worry about.As another new member here, I want to apologize for the off topic responses you have received. I guess Taylor Swift was right - haters gonna hate!

Whatever helps you sleep at night. You are not the first or last person that will pick reliability and lower price over more fun and better gas mileage.The LX 2.4 AWD has all the power I need. MPG has a lot to do on how you drive. If I wanted a fast vehicle I wouldn't buy a CRV. With the 2.4 I get 30 mpg around town and 33 mpg highway and the heat is no problem during the winter. I don't drive hard and don't do abrupt starts. I have no oil dilution problems. Time will tell if the oil dilution in the 1.5 causes pre mature engine wear. Have to see if any of the 1.5 class action lawsuits pan out with oil dilution and inadequate heat. Maybe a long term extended warranty will be part of the settlement if it gets to court for engine wear. Don't know what can be done for the heat.
It definitely does, especially in sport mode where the engine will move right into the sweet spot on the torque band almost as soon as you put your foot on it and accelerate.Those torque figures are very impressive for the 1.5t. As a humble 16 owner with the 2.4/cvt I bet the 1.5 steps off the line very nimbly.
