I'm psyched that the armrest slides forward - although, apparently unlike most people, I do use 2 cup holders. I hope that's not just in the EX-L.. I appreciate some of the great suggestions here for helping to find cubby space, for those of us who need or want it. Yes, some things I have are "junk" - but most are not.. I spend a lot of time in my car. I was thinking of using the cup holders in the door for my water, and having the console ones for other things, but I can't know until I actually get the car. There are some great suggestions/experiences here though - aside from some opinions that some people think everyone should be like them! I'm thrilled if there's a place for loose change in that door pocket, don't need much room but some is good. We often have two people in the car, and also often eat fast food - yes, we are terrible people eating unhealthy food - however that's only a small percentage of what we eat. Bice, your idea is great - I had already thought of that - the things that slide between the seat and the console - will have to see that once I get the car. There are also "caddy's" that fit there with some storage built in - again will have to have the car first to see the options there. I may sound and be spoiled, but I'd like a place for an umbrella, hairbrush, napkins, coins and maybe a very few other things. I WILL be getting this car, and I will deal on the cubby space shortage, and I DO thank everyone for their suggestions. iTowngirl found that Kleenex makes a round dispenser that fits in the door cup holder - that's very nice too. I tried to find a round napkin dispenser, but didn't find one. Yes, with every car, every house, every cell phone, etc., there is always going to be something you wish was better. I agree with those who wrote about the flooring in the HRV being cheap and like felt, AND that it sticks out when the seat is all the way back. Again, something we'll have to learn to live with. That I understand maybe Honda didn't have much choice on, but some things are really not cost cutting, just plain ignorant. I had my gen 1 CRV (also very cheap inside) for 14 years, and I hope to have the HRV just as long. Thanks again to everyone for their suggestions and ways they have found to increase or make best use of the space available. Also, thanks to HRV4ME (I think) for the link to the screen cleaner. I have never had a screen like that in my car, but I can see it might get dirty, and surely will look better clean, and that's a perfect size dispenser. Sorry I'm just not a minimalist. I spent a lot of time in my car and I DO like having a certain amount of stuff with me at all times.
