Well I picked my 07 reg CR-V 2.0 Executive on Friday and here's my first impressions of it. Before leaving the dealership I set up the sat nav to get me home zeroed all trip settings etc and set off on the 8 mile trip home. The first thing I noticed (which I picked up on the test drive) was the clutch pedal was very stiff to depress and when it was released it creaked loudly. (This has since worsened and the car is going back to have the clutch master cylinder replaced). I felt that the steering seems a little on the heavy side but as time has gone on I'm getting used to it. The drivers seat is very comfortable probably one of the best next to my HR-V that I've sat on. The drive home went without a problem and travelling at 30-45mph I arrived home to discover that I'd managed to do it at a credible 37.6mpg.(better than I'd expected) The wife's first impressions on it were,it's square,looks outdated, and it looks like an old mans car, it's uncomfortable and is a heavy car.( Anyway she's coming round) especially now her private reg number is on it. Anyway Saturday came and we went for a run out to a friends, the car runs perfectly it's as I've said comfortable the steering is a little heavy but after all it is a big lump to haul around. Cruise control is good one criticism is the main selector switch is not very easily accessible and could have been better on the steering wheel. After just over 100miles of motoring the car has done it at 28.7mpg which is a little below the 30+ I was expecting but the ride is comfortable. Hopefully I'll get the clutch master cylinder sorted out this week and look forward to updating you all on many more comfortable miles. Me and my big brother.
