      I love mine...........but now they are having issues with gas mixing with the oil. Our dealer said we had to warm it up and drive longer drives. Funny I never had to do that with any other vehicle. My drive to work is 2 miles. I guess I can only drive my old car in the winter.

      which engine model did over 9 sec. 0-100 ? other reviews show upper 7's to 8 secs., depending on which reviewer (pro type).

      OPA Extreme I agree. Motor Trend and Motor Week timed 0-60mph in 7.5 seconds, while Car and Driver timed it in 7.6 sec. Here is the link.

      You forgot to note the Subaru Forester as a direct competitor. As a Honda supporter for many years, and having owned 2 CR-V’s, last year I switched brands and bought a Forester XT, and what a difference in performance! The XT does 0-60 in just over 6 seconds, and the Symmetrical All Wheel Drive is the best on the market. Yes, the interior is not as nicely appointed as the CR-V, but the ride is good, and it’s one of the safest SUV’s out there. Plus....the 2.0 litre 250hp turbocharged engine is hard to give up once you’ve had it. And for all the oil leaks, and my recent 1400km trip averaged out at 32 mpg (mostly highway) or about 8.3 litres per 100km.

      Trev 007 I said Forester as a direct competitor, not the XT! I’m fully aware the XT is no longer available for 2019. The XT is what I bought, but you couldn’t compare the XT to the CR-V anyways. Not in the same class for performance. But you could easily compare the naturally aspirated Forester to the CR-V. Definitely in the same SUV category.

      Because the XT is now resigned to the history books thats why, the mk5 Forester isn't released in the uk yet.
