As an old timer I am used to seeing my cars be at their very best on the day I drive them from the showroom...not so with my new CT (Opal Sage EX-L AWD). This car just keeps improving. A tendency to pull slightly to the left (alignment/balance?) has somehow corrected itself. The MPG has improved significantly since I passed the break in period. And now, unless my senses have been addled by age, the overall feeling/handling/ride of the car is smoother than the day I bought it....almost as if more and more things have simply "meshed" and are working together in a better way

This is my first Honda product and needless to say, I am impressed. I am beginning to expect to go outside some morning and find it wearing an Acura badge....:>)

Glad to say that for me too, my first Honda product and finding that it's always a joy to drive, in fact, I'm always looking for an excuse to go and pick up something for my wife or myself or just go for a day-trip somewhere....

Same here! The CT is the first Honda product I buy for myself (not counting the wife's Element) and it is simply the best car I have ever driven in every aspect.

Wildwilly130, I'm curious as to just how much of an MPG improvement you've had and how long was your break in period. I ask because I have just over 13,000km (aprox 8000mi) and I'm still only getting about 500km to 60 litres of fuel (which works out to aprox 19.5mpg). I got to say I'm rather jealous of thes 25-27 mpg I see many people talking about.

The crosstour has exceeded my expectations as well. I expected to see more issues considering the number of cars sold and this being the first year.

Cc816

CC816 the break-in period seemed to be longer than the 600 miles the book predicted, at least for me, in terms of seeing the improvements I have detailed. As for the mpg, I was getting an overall mixed long and short drives of only 19 mpg through roughly the first 1000 miles. Now I am seeing 23 and I recently got 27 on a mostly highway round trip of 400 miles.

I am heading to Florida this Friday (1600 miles each way) so I will get a good chance to closely monitor the mpg and I'll post the results once I am back.
