I'm signing off this forum, as we are trading in our 17 CRV Touring for a 19 Passport Touring. We're not getting rid of the CRV because of any problems (no OD here) but because She Who Must Be Obeyed fell hard for the Passport when she saw the larger size and more cargo space. And realized she wanted AWD after slipping and sliding in the snow in MN. The Passport drives well, has good pickup with the V6, the ZF transmission shifts smoothly and SWMBO likes sitting higher like she did in her Odyssey. I find it's quieter than the CRV and enjoyed the drive as well. Also was able to get a pretty good discount, even though the Passport has been out just a month.

For those who have the OD issue, I hope you can all find a good resolution.

Cheers!:wave:

I want to see the passport also. The engine was too close to my 2012 pilot. Did not want to go back to the lousy MPG’s. Was doing 12 to 15 street 19 on Highway. Once you’re used to the good mpg is on the CRV it’s kind a hard to go back. The Passport I Believe is not much better. It has auto on off start when you stop to help a bit. But the engine is basically the same. I’ll wait for when they put the 2 L turbo engine in it which will make it better. Enjoy your new ride..

I love the mpg of my 16crv over my 05 Pilot. I am also amazed at the amazing highway mpg numbers third generation Pilot. I miss the V6 but get to drive it when the kids come back.

Amazed that 28-29 MPG would be considered good MPG. There have been 40 MPG wagons (Prius v for example) though not with the high ground clearance form factor of the SUVs. I'm interested in the Honda and the Toyota hybrid SUV versions that should be out before the end of the year. And of course, I'll try to restrain myself and let other people's buying experiences reach the forums and inform me.

The Hybrid CRV will get 40+mpg. But we don't know if the US will get it.

28-29 is great mpg for anything more than small cars. Can't compare a Prius to a CRV. That's like comparing a Civic to a pickup truck. Always a trade off. Compared to other SUVs and SUVs of old, current MPG is amazing considering the new CRVs are bigger and heavier than ones like mine yet get quite a bit better MPG.
