Anyone know if it is true or not that Honda plans to discontinue the Crosstour in the next year or so? Someone at the dog park was telling me this. I can't find anything on the Internet to confirm or refute his claim. I think he said it because my wife was overly proclaiming her love for her CT.

Only thing we KNOW is true, is that Acura announced the discontinuation of the ZDX, which is the Crosstour's big brother.

Honda tends to follow a 5 year production scheme for all models on their Roadmaps, so by that logic, the Crosstour should have a bit more life.

The '13 had some nice changes, but nothing crazy or radical.

Like the Element, Honda will likely take a poor selling product, and EOL it, only to find the demand increase once it's gone. :cool:

Sales are up quite a bit since last year and I have noticed a few more around here but I still think 2015 is going to be the end of the CT line.

I can't imagine the ZDX has nearly the sales numbers of the CT.

I'm planning on keeping my 2010 CT until it refuses to GO :D

Honda refuses to market any of their products other than Accord, Civic, Oddy, Fit, and an the occasional Pilot advertisement. Having a CT and a Ridgeline in my garage, I can honestly say these are 2 of the better products from Honda. Most think the CT is just an Accord with a screwed up rear window, not so. I have had 12 Accords since 1981 and the 2014 CT is far advanced from any. Being a senior citizen I find the CT so much easier to enter and exit than the Accord. Honda marketing probably has no idea.

16 year Honda owner here. We have had a 93 Accord EX-L with Bose that we loved, drove it till dead. We then got a 06 Accord 2dr 4cyl ex, still driving that now, just hit 80k miles. The wife had a 12 Crosstour 4cyl 2wd, and after 2 years really wanted the 4WD, so we just took delivery of a gorgeous Basque Red Pearl II V6 4wd EX-L. 400 miles on the odo now, she is really really smooth on the roads. We plan a long road trip next week, should be a great time in the new ride. The Crosstours are an Accord, let's face it...I like to call them the Accord 4wd wagons... We love all the Accords! :D

I traded a 2008 Accord EX-L for a Cr-V in 2010 and got another in 2012, the 2014 CT is much better for senior folks. None of the falling in and climbing our crap. Love my CT.

I have to agree. After many Hondas, this Crosstour is an unappreciated gem. I do miss my RL at times like at Home Depot but on the highway, the CT is a dream (plus I doubled my mpg's). I put 18K on my Ridgeline in 3 years but the Crosstour already has 3000 in 3 months. It's just a drivers car.
