Just purchased my 2017 EX diamond white. 27k miles. Test drove the 2018 RAV4 and the CR-V was the better car all around. The RAV4 wasnt terrible but a real dud to drive. It rode solid and planted but felt forced to go forward.
Totally loving the driver's layout in the CR-V and the seats are great. I commute 66 miles daily on the west side of the Sierra mountains from Reno to Carson so the AWD will be a welcome change from a 2004 front wheel drive Toyota Solara.
The ability to fit two bikes in my CR-V was a huge plus.
4 weeks ago we helped our mother in law buy a 2016 CR-V with 32k miles. I helped test drive it and was sold on how it handled and the utility.
So here I am with a 2017.
Super stoked on my new car.
I hope to learn a lot and can't wait to start modding and customizing. I cant leave anything alone so this will be fun.

Well, what I thought was the deal, ...... fell through. A couple of broken promises by the dealer and I walked away.

I am now in the process of buying a 2017 EX from a private party. Hope this goes well. This one has less miles and the accessories I was planning on adding anyway.
2" hitch receiver, roof rails, cross bars, all weather mats.
Bound and determined to get my CR-V !!
I'll post back with pics once finalized.

New car is home. Still going through it and learning all the ins and outs. Drives very smooth and so glad I didn't get the RAV4. Calculating mpg at 30 for the trip home and one full tank on my commute week.
Here come the mods......
