Honda isn't listening to you two anyways, since each generation gets more powerful. Like I said, some people don't value progress.

I don't think you understood my post. I own a 2005, 2007, and a 2012. I was saying that the 2005 was slow, and now they've fixed it in the 2012.

Honda is listening. But the CR-V does not need a 273hp 3.5L V6. 185hp-200hp would be plenty.





The lack of power people typically complain about CRV, IMO is the lack of low end torque, that they experience during the first few seconds when they start from zero.

CRV has decent mid and high rpm torque and is useful too. My 2008 CRV never disappointed me while passing other vehicles on undivided roads (even with 4 adult passengers). Yes, you need rev it beyond 3000 rpm and you won't be disappointed.

People doing test drives are easily sold when a car has good acceleration from zero. CRV does'nt impress in that aspect. But CRV never disappoints in the real-world needs, be it merging into freeways or passing.
