Honda has redesigned its segment's best seller CR-V, and the result is better fuel economy, improved safety, sharper handling, and an upgraded interior. The CR-V is small enough to navigate through tight parking lots, yet roomy enough inside to comfortably fit five adults.

"This was the first time we took the CR-V beyond to the grocery store etc. Driving about 40 to 45 miles per hour with no cars (or animals or anything) in sight on the roadway, the brakes suddenly engaged sharply almost stopping the car. 10 minutes later, we would have been on a busy freeway going 70 miles per hour and would almost certainly have been hit from behind. They kept it in the shop for 4 days, but could not find anything. Said they adjusted the camera. They also said this is the second similar problem they have seen like this, so it is rare but appears to be a real thing. This is unacceptable.
