I find it very middle of the road. It's stiff, but not too stiff, still handles like a nice sedan though. I am most likely going to try to install some stiffer anti-sway bars when they become available, as it does seem a little sloppy in clover-leaf style on-ramps, but it handles well, just too much body roll. The valving in the shocks seems kind of ok, but I definately see some room for improvement.

How you guys think the CT will do on rough froezen surfaces such as refrozen snow/slush on road surfaces?

We just bought our CT last week. We also own a 2004 accord EX-L v6. The accord took a beating on the frozen rough stuff last winter and we had to resort to our 1995 F-150 4x4. Will the CT's supension handle it better than teh accord?

I also had an Accord v6 (an '06 SE) and loved it....... The CT has bigger wheels and tires, and a raised and slightly stiffer suspension compared to the regular Accord.
The suspension should be quite supportive but not harsh; I'd say the CT will do just fine in those conditions.

Winter tires are the way to go especially if you got the alloy wheel option with the lower profile tires. I don't drive in winter in Canada without them. Same goes for the Accord.

I think just right. Feels heavier than it is but not bogged down. A little looser than my Ridgeline but firm.

The CT replaces my wife's Avalon. A nice car but it really was soft and floaty. Tiresome on longer trips I thought.

Agree with Army Dad, a bit looser than my RidgeLine and much smarter than my wife's CR-V, in general a very good fit for the vehicle which doesn't weigh much less than the RidgeLine.

We like the Crosstour ride

Just wanted to point out that the ride in the Crosstour is WAY better than the ride in the Totyota Venza - which was among the Crosstour's competition when we were shopping last summer. Milwaukee has some bumpy concrete roads but the Crosstour smoothes them out, whereas the Venza transmits everything to your butt. We also test drove a Hyundai Santa Fe, which is a big, heavy SUV which has a smooth, quiet ride . Crosstour's ride is just as good, without being an SUV.

It is just right for me. I still can't get over how low to the ground I feel in the my old Mitsu sedan. The CT handles far better which is really saying something, given how much higher off the ground it is.

Agree with Christopher H. on the Venza comparison. I test-drove it on some choppy L.A. surface streets and hated the feel *and* the amount of sound transmission into the cabin. The CT is a *much* smoother and quieter ride while giving a good sense of responsiveness - that was the closer for me.
