It's fun to drive, has gotten me to and from work in snow storms with absolutely no problems and the cold weather package keeps my outside mirrors clear and my hands warm too.

20 Feb

So far no snow to play in,

23 Apr

Its comfortable, sporty and can get me through the snow without worry.

21 Jan

The good side of this Jeep is its snow and Ice capabilities, gas mpg.

4 Jun

WE live in the mountains of Colorado and it works well in the snow, mud, and gravel roads.

31 Dec

The only thing I would like to see is slightly more power in the future,

3 May

The transmission is smooth and I like the mapping for holding gears/ maintaining power band - this thing is complex

30 Oct

Off the line acceleration and passing power are way more than adequate.

23 Jan

Transmission avoids the power band like the plague and shifts hard at times.

8 Oct

Less than 5 months off the lot brand new, the power seats went out, the check engine light has been on 5 times, 2 recalls (Dealer tow hitch and some engine issue), and one speaker on the upgraded stereo mysteriously goes in and out.

27 Jan

I love this vehicle for what it is,we have 13,500 miles on it,smooth ride Wish the fuel tank was a little bit bigger,the awd options are pretty impressive for a little suv.

2 Jun

We have one con, that the gas tank could be a bit bigger.

4 Apr

The ONLY downside is the small gas tank.

28 Sep

It makes it hard to start from a light without someone thinking you want to race.

3 May

The stock headlamps for one are rubbish, and Jeeps electronic start/ stop system is silly to have to disengage everytime you start up.

1 Aug

The heating/air conditioning system is the best.

14 Jan

I don't care that the seat & steering wheel heater turn on automatically upon start-up if its below 40 outside.

17 May

but air conditioner comes on randomly, even if it's 12 degrees outside, radio switches stations, or has to buffer constantly, and now the remote access is having issues.

4 Jun

The thermostat failed (450.00) and now the fan needs replaced (350.00).

If you want a vehicle that can drive through deep snow, mud, dirt, sand, etc then a Jeep is great.

27 Mar

but, it's great fun and full of utility for fire roads, etc and can handle the snow better than anything / looking to add a teardrop trailer for camping and travel, canoeing and biking / this is just right for all that .

31 Dec

mountain trails, snow skiing.

21 Mar

Enjoy ripping around in it with all the snow we've had in CO this winter.

16 Dec

Heavy snow the day I bought it, and the Jeep showed its true colors in bad weather.

16 Feb

Excellent in all driving conditions so far- especially snow and wet roads.

17 Sep

My wife loves it says best and most fun vehicle she has driven Her relatives in Thailand said Please ship it here Sure there’s wind noise and not the best handling

8 May

At around 70mph and a cross wind blowing from mainly to right side of Jeep causes a squealing noise coming from the dash.

21 Mar

Wind noise at high speeds is slightly louder than some of my old converts

1 Dec

I was concerned about road noise and rough ride.

3 Sep

It can get noisy inside at those speed levels due to wind, simply crank up the radio volume.

22 Dec

Only downside, that's correctable with aftermarket parts, is it needs constant correction at highway speeds.

I'd absolutely recommend the CRV to anyone that doesn't live in a state that see's a lot of snow fall or have winter 8-9 months out of the year.

5 Feb

Engine does not heat up even after 40 minutes of startup & interior stills feels like ice.

19 Jun

It is great in the snow and on the dry it really handles well.

16 Nov

I strongly recommend if you plan on rural driving after dark (especially in snow or during hunting season!

30 Oct

Great on highway, city, mountains and snow Driving conditions.

1 Oct

I really like the safety suite. The lane keep assist works great (keep the camera clear of ice/rain/etc.)

19 Feb

Positives: - Good in the snow - Room and good storage - Handles well.

20 Jul

Great in the winter months with snow and Ice.

5 Mar

Driver assisted features are negated by snow and/or heavy rain.

23 Jul

Very noisy engine, sluggish and very uncomfortable.

16 Jun

Highway road noise is present

24 May

Love everything about my CR-V EX-L except the excessive cabin noise.

30 Mar

There are rattles in the dash and overhead console that drive us crazy on long road trips.

30 Mar

Very quiet cabin on highway.Little road/wind noise.

25 Jan

), the heat doesn't work (15 minutes of warm up and the windshield doesn't even defrost), it is uncomfortable, AWD is not good, CarPlay interface is terrible, high-level of road noise and I could go on and on.

14 Jul

but brake issues and weird noises supposedly from brakes!

2 Apr

Car has a lot of road noise.

3 Feb

I would improve the noise of the engine especially when driving on a quiet road, the turbo is said to make a high pitch hum that can be annoying to hear constantly.

2 Aug

The only negative is the engine noise when you initially accelerate - wish Honda would have insulated the engine compartment and firewall.

18 Aug

The transmission "growls" a bit upon acceleration

30 Mar

The transmission slips when you approach a light or slow the vehicle down.

19 Feb

Already in the service department for electrical glitches and the transmission gas hard shift.

16 Dec

button that controls movement of the shifter knob broke into several parts and fell from the shifter knob causing an issue with properly shifting vehicle into gears.

What happens is you don't see the anything in front and the wiper doesn't help much in taking out puddles of water thudding into to your windshield straight.

Only negative was the Bridgestone Ecopia factory equipped tires.

23 Feb

I have snow tires and feel I can go out even in terrible blizzard conditions.

23 Jul

Very noisy engine, sluggish and very uncomfortable.

24 May

That means the engine turns off (to save the ozone I guess) whenever you come to a full stop.

27 Jan

-The oil dilution issue has caused my engine to stall even after they did the temporary software fix.

12 Jan

Small gasoline leak is getting into the oil inside the engine.

10 Jan

It's a manufacturer defective internal issue inside the motor.

5 Feb

I requested them to replace my engine and they are dragging their feet even when they have all the dealership documentation of the problem.

3 Feb

I would improve the noise of the engine especially when driving on a quiet road, the turbo is said to make a high pitch hum that can be annoying to hear constantly.

3 Jan

If you like a used one that has this motor (2017-on) be sure to research THAT particular car's maintenance records for motor issues.

15 Sep

There is a possible oil dilution problem on this engine & Honda has no real fix.

2 Aug

Don't be put off by the reviews you might see about gas found in the engine oil or the battery dying.

The stability in wind rain and snow is remarkable, we have all wheel drive.

5 Feb

Then there's the very high seat 'Range Rover Vista' and great ground clearance for our Canadian snow.

23 Dec

It drives wonderfully in the snow and coming down out of the mountains is a breeze thanks to the transmission and breaking assist.

1 Oct

Cargo space is plentiful, I can have a stroller, suitcases & even an ice chest back there if I pack it right.

11 Jan

Fantastic handling in snow and raining/muddy conditions with 21/28 city/highway mpg.

27 Feb

Handles great in weather rain, snow and ice.

7 Jul

Obviously, I am not happy with Nissan as this sensor should not have been mounted to the motor mount and their motor mounts should last longer than 28K miles.

I have had this truck in the shop so many times, I think they should have paid a portion of with my monthly truck payments.

20 Dec

Lemon Laws have a limit of the purchase price, unless, they knew of the issue before you bought it, then there is no limit, and I guess that's where we are going next.

18 Dec

you can not buy a gas cap for this truck .

11 Sep

If you buy a Ram, DON'T BUY A LIMITED.! !

24 May

GM was not discounting hardly at all so the dealers were bring the price down on there side..Ford F-150’s interior was well just cheap looking with the small screen and hardly had no center storage because the shifter was there,not like the Ram 1500 had.

29 Mar

but I personally feel like at this price RAM should have delivered us something better.

13 Jun

The ONLY negative about this truck is the turning radius.

28 Dec

Various systems turn themselves off for no reason.

20 Dec

To do this on this $64,000 Ram, you have to manually shut it off and turn it back on when the vehicle warms up.

11 Sep

but driving down the road with the rear view camera on (and won't turn off) is terribly distracting.

10 Jun

However, this latest full tank (26 Gallons) seems to be getting better Milage after: 1.

28 Jan

My only complaint is gas mileage around town (city driving).

6 Dec

15 miles per gallon in a 2020 vehicle is terrible!

2 Sep

Only the gas mileage is poor around town not on the highway.

13 May

My only fault is the gas mileage.

The interior is unquestionably better than any other half ton and my only complaint is fuel economy

Excellent in the snow and ice.

13 May

Finally, as always, the forester is excellent off road and in the snow.

7 Apr

Will go anywhere in deep snow, mud.

27 Mar

This vehicle did amazing on roads this past Colorado snow storm/blizzard 2021.

28 Aug

None of these will stand up to what this or any other Forester will give you in dirt, rough pavement, snow, ice, mud or off road (not rock crawling) driving.

25 Apr

I drove it through snow, slush, rocks, mud, mountain and forest roads, and sand, not to mention pavement and it never let me down or made me lose confidence.

6 Jun

Let down by rattles.. right door rattles and there are buzzes near the S pillar and headliner.

18 Dec

Lincolns don't have this included even and you only care when you need it so this is piece of mind +Minimal cabin noise during highway driving, excess of 75 or really windy you can experience some wind noise

30 Jul

With just me in car it feels underpowered and strained to accelerate - for $28k plus I’m shocked at the cabin noise.

11 Mar

Engine noise is not up to other suv choices, wind noise unacceptable at speeds over 50 mph.

26 Jul

If that isn't enough the EYESIGHT and myriad other "safety" features will bark, whine, whistle, scream, and rattle your nerves to death literally every trip.

8 Oct

I also do not like the fact that you cannot permanently disable the engine stop/start feature,

28 Aug

The 2010 I put 183,000 miles on before getting hit in the rear and totaling it was an absolute blast to drive the engine was small

30 Jul

Good resale value (which is good b/c I’m dumping this car in near future due to below reasons) Cons: - engine is underpowered.

24 Jun

I do like the engine turning off during stop lights, or traffic jams.

25 Apr

The only things I’d change on this vehicle are the windshield which is prone to cracks/chips more than most cars and a stronger engine or add a turbo for towing/acceleration (but goodbye great MPG).

11 Mar

Engine noise is not up to other suv choices, wind noise unacceptable at speeds over 50 mph.

21 Nov

It took 4 trips to the dealer and a call to Subaru of America in New Jersey to there Tech center to discover that it was a random problem, and they had just found out what was causing it, now i had 2 new motors put in already.

26 Jul

As the Pro Reviewer here wrote; the auto start/stop feature is akin to a drunkard who cannot decide which bar to enter next, it is just constantly confused about its own job, engine on or off.

It also comes with the normal, sport, and snow modes as well, which is awesome since there’s no AWD option so it’s a great alternative.

4 Dec

Snow mode surprisingly works well.

12 Apr

but there is a "Snow Mode" that I guess works very well in slick conditions.

Oh and for being a small car it sits higher, so you don’t have to bend and fold up like a pretzel to get in the car.

20 Nov

18 Sep

Engine very noisy.

Interior noise is reduced.

19 Aug

This makes for poor protection agains small particles that hit the windshield when driving down the highway (I can't imagine how you can drive down an unpaved road without a problem).

18 May

The biggest problem is a windshield.

19 May

Was prepared to be disappointed with the CVT transmission

20 Nov

The single biggest issue is the standard engine/transmission package.

12 Jan

Takes time to get used to CVT transmission and quirky auto on/off feature,

7 Nov

And I did a U turn to the left and I hit the left manual shifter, and the transmission dropped into low gear and of course the engine started racing.

Car has know stereo bluetooth connection issues, Bad window motor regulator after 1 month of purchase.

20 Nov

They need to pipe in some mildly robust engine sounds to cover up the annoying real engine sound.

18 Sep

Navigation almost useless Engine start/stop very annoying and has to be disabled every start cycle Radio sometimes wont turn down or up.

7 Nov

But this stops the A/C from cooling and that causes the engine to kick back on and off particularly in warmer climates.

6 Dec

Cruise control is ridiculous looses 3 to 5 mph going up slight road inclines then breaks as soon as the car gets 2 miles over set limit.

22 Apr

The think that i don't like is that there is no cruise control, it is an option which is ridiculous, at least should come with some safety features standard, as many other Makes do.

26 Jun

Only 4 star on comfort due to louder than expected engine noise.

22 Oct

Took it back to the dealer and they couldn't recreate the noise.

8 Feb

Unfortunately, Acura’s answer is cheap and shoddily upholstered leather seats where the leather is wavy and pulling and puckered along the stitches, has poor interior lighting, and delivers excessive road noise and tire roar.

24 Mar

but there is some road noise.

5 Jan

The brakes squeaked all the time at low speeds since the day we drove it off the lot.

25 Nov

Acura has known about problems with the brakes and electronics for two years and has no fix.

22 Oct

The dealer knows it is a problem so they changed out my rear brake pads.

24 Mar

I will say the one feature that bugs me is how the car shuts off when the break is on, than it makes a starting noise this is very annoying.

9 Mar

The only things I don't care for in the car are the brake alert feature, the out-of-lane alert, and the low MPG (23).

10 May

The gas mileage is lower than I expected, and that’s the only thing that I’m disappointed with.

7 Mar

The turbo is also loud and the gas mileage is not good.

20 Jan

My only issue would be the gas mileage as for a 4-cylinder I only get about 21 MPG with a decent mix of city and highway driving .

13 Jul

Cons: Fuel Economy (15 mpg, mostly city driving of 200 miles), Styling (I wish A-Spec would come with black side mirrors, black roof and black emblems/badges), No auto fold side mirrors, Blind Spot assist is not on the side mirrors.

8 Feb

Perhaps Acura was trying to increase the MPG by decreasing the sound insulation.
