strangely enough my neighbor traded a 2016 CRV EXL for a 2020 CRV EXL and said they preferred the ride of their 2016. They were leasing and the lease was up and he said he wished they would have bought the lease out. I asked if it had rattles and dash noises and he said it did, he did say he gets consistently better mpg with his new one. That is what bugs me most is the noises that Honda says are normal. I currently have 3 hondas 2014 crv, 2016 crv and 2017 civic and prior have had 15 or 16 all new and besides crv include multiple odyssys, accords, civics and a prelude My jeep wrangler does not have a single dash rattle there is no way the honda should. I have been a pretty stellar customer but I think their quality has tanked. Bought my first one in 1975 so been with them a long time.I feel the 5th generation is definitely built better than the 4th. I would stop by and check out the newest generation before you write Honda off. I expect there will be more updates by 2022. Including the infotainment system, which needs it!
