I'm a looong time Honda customer and enthusiast. All of my vehicles (2 & 4 wheel types) have been Honda's and any future vehicles will be Honda products because of their value for the dollar, quality, bullet-proof reliability, and consistent resale value. My last 4-wheeled vehicle was a 2003 Honda CR-V before it was totaled by a Yellow Cab driver who took a nap at speed, at the wheel. I've been looking for a suitable replacement ever since. The 03 CR-V was the best model in terms of visibility and utility. Remember the built-in picnic table? However, I couldn't handle the road noise and OK gas mileage. I always wished both were better and I hated the styling the CR-V took on after that except for the 2014 model and I think they finally got it right in the 2015 version. That said, the HR-V appears to be a reincarnation of my favrite 03 CR-V in terms of utility, with the mileage I've been praying for, plus a killer interior, and the bonus of up to date technology! I'm anxious to test drive one so I can decide if my next Honda will be the HR-V, or the CR-V? Glad to be part of HR-V enthusiast family!
