We have put about 5000 miles on our 2015 front wheel drive CRV EX which we bought in Florida which has the CVT.( I mention Florida because I think it is difficult to find a non-AWD one in the Northern dealerships). I can honestly say (and my wife concurs) that it is probably the best vehicle we've ever owned. We don't like it - we love it. We're in our 60s and have owned many different brands and vehicle configurations. For a while prior to this we were fairly loyal Toyota owners - not anymore.
I have read many reviews by people claiming to have experiences with shuddering? All I can say is we have ABSOLUTELY NONE. I have stopped and spoken to 3 other owners that I have met (parking lot gas station etc) - they all expressed sentiments similar to mine (love the CRV with the CVT.
That's all I can tell you. That's been our experience.
They say there's no dumb questions but I differ. I'm not dumb but it's something I've had no experience with. I've used 3 speed transmission up through 6speed. Now there's 8. I understand the advantage of adjusting gear ratios to velocity. If you had to make a choice between a 7 or 8 gear transmission how would that compare to a CVT? I've never driven one but I don't want to go into it blindly. No more street racing...long time ago. Don't want to go back there. Has anyone had experience that is able to give an evaluation of the two? I don't want to spend a lot of money and find I hate it. thanks
I am losing faith in this and F. I bought to take advantage of what I thought would be an increase in car sales. Now, they are selling more cars and gas is cheap. Cheap gas means F-150's. But the share prices remain the same. Another year? How long before cars/trucks are oversold.
((IT'S TIME TO BUY ((AA)) LONGS!! ((CARS & TRUCKS)) ETC.. ARE (((ALL))) GOING TO HAVE (((ALUMINUM)),((( BODY & PARTS))), ETC... MADE WITH LIGHTER ((ALUMINUM)) FOR BETTER ((FUEL-MILEAGE)),((BUY LONGS NOW!!!))))))))))))
in the cul-de-sac west of us. A nasty wind storm blew through the whole area last Saturday and we lost power for 26 hours. We didn't lose any food, but it was close. Talking to the neighbor across the fence a few days later, he said his and four other homes were connected to that generator. Good neighbors and Honda generators are very cool....
Book doesn't seem to mean squat any more. Too much Benjamin Graham (outdated) although I respect the writing.
Agreed, proof is in the resale value. A chart of the depreciation curve of Honda versus any U.S. manufacturer would prove the point.
