My "new" 2010 Crosstour EX-L AWD. Thank you for all the wisdom!

Hello CT Owners,

First off, thank you all for your contributions to this forum. I have been lurking to research whether I should pull the trigger on a one-owner, dealer-serviced 2010 CT EX-L with 85k miles on it. I have never owned or driven one of these. I actually spent most of my adult life hating on this car. Some of my favorite Reddit comments I came across while researching:

"...its like the pixar mom version of a car."

"The Rodney Dangerfield of the Honda community."

I spent weeks looking for the best high-mileage, bang-for-buck "luxury" car to last me and my family the next 10 years, and the Crosstour kept popping up. V6, AWD, long-haul comfort, spacious, etc. With a $12.5k budget, this was a no-brainer. Spent another $100 on the SVCM, and I'm hoping I just bagged myself a high-mileage Swiss army knife for my family to enjoy for the next decade.

One question that I cannot seem to find the answer to is -- has anyone had any success installing a new head unit that has CarPlay compatibility? Any help/input would be greatly appreciated.

To all who have, are, and will contribute to this forum, thanks all for your dedication!

Welcome to the forum, love the color but I love my silver more. As for a headunit with carplay, there is a guide on youtube that is pretty good and goes through everything required to set it up although that is on a car without navigation so it might be a little bit different.

More about your car though, obviously it's loaded already but is there anything you want to do to it? I would recommend new headlights to get rid of the hazed look, it definitely changed mine for the WAY better, and maybe all the little pieces that make it really complete. I see in the trunk picture you're missing one of the caps for the bumper bolts, you can find them for around 11$ a piece on any one of the parts distributors or a nearby dealer. You do have a couple of the factory accessories too, the door visors and the splash guards, very nice, there is also the sunroof visor which I have found to be extremely worth it, with some mixing and matching of crosstour and accord coupe parts. I have weathertech liners in my car and they're great, saved the carpets from a lot of mishaps, theyre very easy to clean and they blend in like factory.

part number for the cap for you.

If and when I decide to go to an aftermarket head unit I will most likely be following this guide a few times over, wiring isnt my specialty but I have the tools for it.
