Just traded in an '08 CRV-EXL awd that was leased and leased a '10 Diamond White w/tan leather CT-EXL awd this afternoon. Did not opt for the Nav system. Love this car. Can't see why so many think it's "styling challenged". And I love the fact that it seems relatively rare and I have yet to see another one on the road! Got a good deal at the closeout sale that's running thru September - first month free, no money down and less per month than my CRV which retailed for $7000 less:)

Just happened upon this Forum tonight, so I will read more posts tomorrow and I will spend more time in the morning digging through the owners manual and playing with my new toy. This is my sixth Honda and it is one of 2 daily drivers that I will use year round. I live in Michigan during the summer and Florida in the winter. I have 2 classic Rolls Royce collectible cars and belong to the Rolls Royce Owners Club and Forum which appears quite different. I'm looking forward to reading through all the posts from fellow Crosstour owners.

Thanks CCT. I just spent a few hours reading the manual and trying a few of the features. Really a very well equipped car for the money. Debating on adding park sensors. Rear vision is very limited. Any thoughts?

Hi Rolls, welcome to the forum. It would be great to see a photo of the CT between two Rolls. There are at least two threads on the backup sensors, but I don't recall that anyone has actually got it on their car. Richard

Thanks again. I can take a picture of the 3 cars, but I still haven't figured out how to post pics on this forum?...

upload to a host like PhotoBucket and post the link, or resize to about 100k and upload from your comp as thumbnails....

Thanks. My partner and I were out in the CT today. Just love getting it on the road and driving. Very responsive, smooth, and quiet. Not bad for a mere Honda<smile>.

Two weeks and I finally saw my first Crosstour over the weekend and it was also in white. I also washed the car yesterday. No leaks, no panels rubbing/chipping on the hatch, and no mis-matched panels as others have had. Really very nicely finished and put together. And I still can't get over the attention this car gets!

Good to hear, Rolls2.......pretty much a good example of Honda's rep.
Like yours, mine has been trouble free with no niggles or glitches, but they do crop up -- no biggie.

Yes the attention is over the top. I've had many of the same comments and looks.
Generally people are very impressed. Got to mean higher sales...

Positive response is over the top. And the more I look at the car, the more I like it. So many bloggers hate the looks, but I am loving it. If you look at it as a bloated, pumped up Accord, it's not pretty, but as a trim and slim SUV, it looks awesome!

Well put. That's exactly what it is, and one of the best looking SUV's.

LOL, haters.:rolleyes: They'll only hate it until they drive one/get one then they'll love it like we do.:D

I take it as a positive sign that it gets that much attention and evokes that much emotion.
