I was looking at CRVs online for weeks and got a ride two hours one way to check two out in Roseburg. While there looked at several and just for the heck of it, checked out the HRV. I saw online the feature of the backseats going up for taller items that needed transport. I drove and liked the HRV but was in a parking lot at the fairgrounds when I test drove it. (Still shaky about driving after totaling my CRV. hadn't driven yet since the accident) So I did not notice the wavy windshield. I was burned out after looking at so many cars that day and online. Went for lunch and just decided to get the one I did.Why didn’t you replace your wrecked car with a CR-V? I had a CR-V before, and I admit it is a better car too. You will get organizing your HR-V figured out with time…I did. My glass is all good and I have had no problems. I do miss the CR-V’s center console too. The back seats are great, you will like them. You said nothing about the biggest difference…the engine. The CR-V’s is light years better than the HR-V’s. If your windshield is not perfect,, push them until it is. It almost sounds like you want us to fix your problems? Did you not get to look at it and drive it before you bought it?
I'm not asking anyone here to fix my car problems! What gave you that idea? The title to the section I found and answered to is "Dislikes about Honda HRVs - let's hear it!" so that is what I did. I didn't ask for anyone here to fix it. I wondered if others had the problem of the windshield since I spent all day waiting for it to be replaced and the new one had the same problem.
I live in a small town on the west coast. It's over a half hour to the local Honda dealer and two hours to the place I bought mine. There are many extremely foggy days here and sometimes the fog is so dense we depend on seeing the white lines to let us know where we are on the road. When the lines swoop into the car, it is disorienting and dangerous at night in fog or if another car's headlights make it hard to see.
I don't know that much about engines. But I do know the CRV felt more solid on the road. I am getting 33.6 MPG on the highway and 28 + in town. CRV was 27 overall.
