I had a 2003 CRV and didn't want it give it up until I drove the 2012. The 2012 CRV is just wonderful. The ride is smooth, comfortable, and I just love the bluetooth, and backup camera.
The only problem I found is there is no place to store anything. When the back seats are down, you cannot have anything on the floors in the back seat. I am missing the compartment under the passenger seat, the space under the picnic table, small compartments on the dash, etc.
I guess I don't need all of the junk I had stored in my 2003, but when I have the dogs in the back, where do I put my grocery bags?
