Hello all, good to join the site.
I just purchased a 2015 Touring black/black. Was between the CR-V and RAV4, but for the price and features, refreshed look, the CR-V wins. Plus the RAV4 interior and especially gauge cluster looks early 90's. Here are my initial thoughts on some items. Feel free to comment or ask any questions.

Vibration - Yes there is a slight vibration, however it is Not as bad as my previous 2012 LX. i looked at my build date and it is 04/15, so some owners who have it bad can check out their build dates and see if it is prior to 04/15. Overall, it is barely noticeable. i am only at 103 miles, so hopefully it stays this way

CVT transmission - for me, as long as it works like it was designed and last's, i do not care if it is a CVT. the engine sound is louder when stepping on it, compared to previous years. i am sure most people couldnt tell the difference between transmissions.

Sound System / Display - Everyone has their preference on what a top of the line trim sound system should sound like. ( 328 watts / sub ). Does this even produce half of that? lol. and the sub seems useless! not really what i expected from the touring trim, but its something as i get older that goes to the bottom of the list of things to harp about. Kind of miss the volume / tuning knobs. Display graphics looks a little dated.

Interior - Good looking interior overall, especially with the black leather. Wish the armrest was higher. Dont really feel the heated seats that much, but then i am comparing that to my lexus is350 heated seats. Doors still have that plastic, wish they could have softened it up a bit for a more premium feel.

Lights - Wish they would have done HID's with the projector's. Definitely needs a light upgrade to match the LED's.
