I am 50+ years old and this is the best car I have bought. I have purchased 11 new cars since I got my drivers license and have found the Honda Crosstour above the rest. Mercedes, Mitsubishi, Toyota (Tacoma and still own), Ford, Buick, Chevy and the dreaded Gremlin (actually my Father passed it down to me) are the vehicles thus far bought new. I love how this car handles, interior, drive comfort, exterior (why do folks complain on exterior?) and performance. This as quiet as the Mercedes I replaced with this and handles like a “dream.” What you say?

Glacier Blue 2W-EXL NAV 2,800 miles, K & N air filter, Mobile 1 M1-110 Oil Filter, Malco leather conditioner. Took badging off rear to have cleaner look...used hair dryer to heat and then pealed off "H" and the rest. Just me, I do this on all my vehicles. Easier to wax and clean anyway.

I agree - the family was always Toyota and switched to Honda in 2006 -

and the cars just feel sportier than the Toyotas ever did. Oh, I had a Mazda 626 that leaked oil and leaked water in when it rained through the flooboards the whole time I had it (8 years-no Mazda ever again!).

The Crosstour is so much better than the 06 Accord EX L with Nav and that was the nicest car I'd ever had until the CT.

I think the front grille on the Crosstour looks better than the Accord grille -because the Crosstour is wider, it blends in better. It's quieter, handles better and can't beat not having to bend over with the hatch.

So I'm with you - great car - and on the different car boards I've gone to, there are always haters about some model.

I really like this car, it is as confortable as any car I have owned. It is sporty and almost fast. I only say that cause my other car is let's just say very fast, 0 - 60 4.2 sec and top speed of 185 mph. I still get looks like WTF is that. I did have one of my co-workers compare it to the the BWW X6. It's a Honda and once it gets past Honda's Bungled face book released. Over all Honda did a very good job with this car.

Yeah, but the 06 Accord cannot be compared to the 10 Accord, which the Crosstour is based on. That said, I have driven both the 10 accord and 10 Crosstour, and the Crosstour seems to ride differently, more smooth, quiet, and refined.

The only problem with the Crosstour, is the carrying costs between the Crosstour and similar Accord sedan are vastly different, because the finance rates are so much lower with the Sedan.Otherwise, I would get the Crosstour in a second.

I wounder why Honda has not offered the lower financing on the Crosstour as they do with the Accord. From what I hear the Crosstour is not selling all that well plus you would think they want to get more on the road.

I think their promotions are based on what's currently selling, what's not and what's on dealer lots. The CT had promotional financing last month that is no longer available, although the Accord still has it. Evidently CT's are selling at a rate that Honda likes, and Accords (and others) need a boost.

I got 1.9% financing on mine. The Accord Sedan had 0.9%. Yeah, that's obviously better, but 1 point isn't a huge enough difference for me to be concerned about it. I'm thrilled with the financing rate I got.

Interesting, I like to see the actual sales numbers on the CT.

I just got my CT last week - still at 1.9%! One more reason to buy it - as if I needed more than a REALLY nice car!!

Honda is offering it now until sometime in August.

Love it! It's one of the first cars in a long time that I just want to get into and drive. I've owned a lot of new and used cars from Honda's to Rolls Royces and this car gets as many looks as my 2 older Rolls Royces! Every time I come out to the parking lot, people are around the car looking and pointing at the CT. And in almost 2 weeks, I have yet to see another CT. A big thumbs up!
