It might just be the EX-L has them as standard and you can get them as an option on the other trim levels. At least that's what I'm hoping for....then again, it is a $491 add on option on the CR-V, which I think is a bit steep.A little disappointed (again) to see roof rails available on the EX-L trim only. I'm happy to upgrade to EX for the extra features and while I'd love to get an EX-L I am on a budget. Is it such a big deal to put roof rails on all models? Hope it is just a mistake on the website.
