Good evening to all. Bought a new 2010 Crosstour EX-L in mid to late October. I've enjoyed the CT, but I must admit........I should've purchased a CT with the Navi Package. I was surprised to find that the tire pressure monitoring system only displays a single low pressure tire icon. The majority of the vehicles I've owned actually display the tire pressure in all 4 tires. The same holds true for a Miles Per Gallon readout. That too, only comes with the Navi Pack. All of that is water under the bridge. I had to chuckle a bit for actually having to get out of my new CT with a tire pressure gauge and find which tires need air. lol. It was at that point that I realized just how spoiled I'd become. Every vehicle I've owned for the past 20 years has been of a dark color. Mostly black. The only to exceptions were a 1993 Indigo Blue (navy blue) Chevy Silverado, and a dark green metallic 2000 Accord EX-V. This time, I went the total 360 degree rout. Metallic Silver. Literally "night & day" difference. I was ready for a lighter colored vehicle by this time anyway. Thoughts of a Black CT do cross my mind now & then. Not so much anymore, as the Metallic Silver has really grown on me. I'm quite happy with it. The longer I stare at it (come on........we all do these types of things, lol) and the longer I drive it, the more I appreciate the CT EX-L.

Congrats, Rob.....and welcome to the club...

My Infiniti M45 had the individual tire pressure monitoring and I must admit that was the cat's meow.
The Lex that replaced it doesn't have it but hey it's an 'F' so some consolation there.:p
I'm sure that feature would be on the Acura equivalent but of course would be much more $$$.
Yes there are features of the navi that we would all like to have but I too didn't opt for it and have to settle for the Garmin which is portable and some say more functional than the OEM unit.

I've had the silver colour you have on many cars lately (Lex also) and love it -- very low maintenance compared to darker colours -- and looks awesome.

Enjoy the new Honda. She's a beauty, comfortable and very utilitarian.

Welcome! And I agree, I leased a CT EX-L w/out nav and also regret not opting for the Nav, but in 3 years, it'll be something new anyway. I love the CT and just about everything about the car. Next month, I am going to check out a Garmin that is totally voice activated, but I wish I had a mpg readout and a back-up camera.

Thanks for the welcome CCT & rolls2. I'm really enjoying it. I find the body styling to be "unique". Something funny happened to me yesterday evening. I was coming out of a big box electronics store & their were 3 guys standing about 10 feet from my new CT. There's not many on the roads here in west texas yet. Now to be honest with you, people used to look & make comments about my previous vehicle, the black Chrysler 300C. This was the 1st time these guys have seen a CT. 2 of the 3 loved it. The 3rd guy called it a "station wagon". lol. I had to laugh.
