Bought it the day after Thanksgiving. It is the Pearl Red and we have about 300 miles on it. It has the light cream leather interior. I added the door side moldings. The car is a dream. My wife has a 2009 Accord and this drives better. The suspension feel different but that could be based on a variety of things. Getting about 17 mpg in town. Has the Blue Tooth which is nice when driving. Found it this car was at a car show before Hendrick Honda in Charlotte got it. All in all, we love it.

Just got my white diamond pearl with black interior crosstour today. I have been watching and waiting on this car since I saw it online this last summer.

New Owner Feedback 1st Week

Have my CT EX-L 4WD Navi (#646 of the assembly line) for a week now and wanted to get some klicks on it before I checked in. Add on's are Engine Block Heater,Battery Blanket, Michelin X-Ice Xi2 Tires, Under Coating,Locking Wheel Nuts,Moonroof Visor,Hood Edge Deflector,4WD Protection Package,Interior Illumination.

Ride and handling very much like the 08 Accord that I traded off.The wind and road noise is very quiet compared to the 08 Accord that had ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) in comparison to the Ct which has ASC (Active Sound Contol) And on the centre stack they did move some buttons from L to R and Visa Versa. And wow a very Updated Navi Map and more simple voice commands.Also the bar graph on the back up camera I find very handy when backing up (page 101 navi OM)
I did encounter some minor problems, the hood cowl area is very simular to the Honda Ridgeline. If you are in the snow belt and not in a garage you can be sure it will be full of snow. So may I suggest lift the wipers up clean it out,if not you will be taking in snow through your heater core with fine coating on your dash. (PS: Don't lift the hood with the wiper arms up page 355 OM)

Also had a fuel fill problem. I had been to a car wash and the next day wanted to top the fuel tank up. I could not fully remove the fuel filler cap. The problem turned out to be the swival portion of the tether stap that goes around the filler cap and taken on moisture and was frozen. With a few squirts of Lock D Icer problem solved. So a heads up on this depending upon your climate.(Page 284 OM)

My heater fan speed control buttom will not adjust to a down speed but will adjust up. And it works both up or down with the navi on and using voice command.

All the comments that Iv'e received on the CT from friends and total strangers have been 100% positive. And should there be any negitive it will not bother me as I know that a I a great vehicle. Now a couple pic's.

R4WD, what is that yellow cord for, is the car a cross-over battery powered too ????
I don't have a plug in for mine, is that an option ???
Just kidding, I am originally from Regina and moved to Surrey BC 16 years ago and have not used a block heater, nor battery blanket since.
The cars that we imported here from Sask had plugs hanging out the grill, and we actually did get asked some real silly questions from people who have lived here all thier lives.
I have had my Crosstour for over a month now, black on black full load and love the vehicle, but would be nice to see how the 4wd works in snow.
I managed to get 21 MPG on my 1st full tank, and that was 100% city driving. For an engine that is not broken in yet, I am impressed with the low fuel consumption for fulll time 4wd so far.
