Hi all,

I am one of the folks affected by the VW emissions scandal, and my Golf TDI goes back tomorrow. I will miss the manual transmission immensely (every car I have ever owned has been a stickshift), but after a LOT of research, I have settled on a 2017 CR-V LX AWD. We get a good bit of snow where I live, and the AWD just seems practical. That plus the CR-V seems to be comparatively better than similar sized vehicles in all the categories that matter most to me.

I have been lurking here a bit, and you guys seem really helpful. Hoping to be able to contribute!

Trillium,
Like you I've only had stick shifts for the last 45 years and I finally stepped up to a automatic "CVT". It has been 2 months now and I have NO regrets, I loved my stick shifts but now, it is time to enjoy the ride and comfort without the extra effort of shifting..

Great color choice! Do you know when it's supposed to arrive?
I was hoping for tomorrow as my husband's work schedule next week is crazy and he won't be able to take me to pick it up. But I got an email last night saying Friday is a no go, so they will have to give me a loaner, as promised. I asked for the Civic Type R that's in the showroom but they're not going for it. ?
