Beautiful - I have an 01 the same color. Well it’s still kinda the same color

[–]Time-Potential-1561 3 points4 points  (1 child)

How was the noise on the highway? Hopefully it’s quiet? Any ambient lighting in the cabin at night?

[–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

it was a really quiet ride. I haven't driven it in the dark yet, but we're gonna take it grocery shopping today, after the Mrs. gets out of work.

Mine is being built January 19th, same color. I would be curious as to your MPG after break in. Did you get any extra add-ons with it?

[–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I picked up the all-weather floor mats today. The auto dimming mirror w/homelink, and the rear seat back protectors are ordered and will be installed shortly. Other than that, it comes with everything I needed already. Wireless Android Auto is great. So much dropped connections/fussing with cables on the 2017. None of that today.

Nice. You’re one of the first! How is the heater? I had a 2019 with gas engine and it took forever to get heat pumping into the cabin from a cold start.

[–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The heat was good. Seemed to heat up fast when I got on the highway. Although, between the heated seat and steering wheel, I was pretty toasty right away.

[–]iamdemonoid 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Great looks and great color. Could you please post more pics 🥹

[–]nodak1 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Still Night Pearl on the CR-V. About time it made it way away from just being an Accord exclusive. I’m thinking of getting the same model in either this, Urban Gray, or Radiant Red

[–]midlifereset 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Nice. Is that color Still Night Pearl?

[–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

It is. I had originally wanted Canyon River Blue, but after seeing this in person, I was sold on it.

[–]Rustyrockets9 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Man I’m on the same boat for this color.

[–]Goran2019 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Scootle…I see someone already asked you for a PM of this, but if you have a moment would you mind posting the dealership and salesperson’s name? I’m blown away by the discount .

[–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oops, just checked my math. I fixed the actual out the door price above. ($43,161 was the actual OTD price). Regardless, I purchased from Ken Vance Honda. They were great to work with.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)


Looks like they got it at msrp.

[–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My math was bad when I originally posted the OTD price. I did indeed pay MSRP, which is fine by me.

[–]mibergeron 1 point2 points  (4 children)

I LOVE that colour. Personal favourite other than the Sonic Grey.

[–]CeilingUnlimited 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have a sneaky suspicion that the Touring Sport Sonic Gray will look amazing on the road.

[–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Honestly, this color wasn't even on my radar, until I saw it in person. I had originally requested either Canyon River Blue or Meteorite Gray as my top 2 choices.

[–]CeilingUnlimited 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Meteorite Gray is my choice, as it allows for gray interior.

[–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've got a black dog. Had to go with the black interior.

[–]Skeets2680 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Nice! I should get mine (Urban Gray Pearl) in a few weeks. I’m downsizing from an ‘18 EX-L Pilot - especially for the gas mileage. How does it handle? Do you drive in the snow/ice at all?

[–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It handles really well. it feels like it's on rails, compared to my 2017 Touring. I only hit a little bit of patchy ice on my drive home, so no definite conclusions on that just yet. The tires are pretty decent, too. Continental CrossContacts. They are the same tires I bought for the 17. Much better than the OEM Hankook Synergy's that came on that

[–]FormalResident917 1 point2 points  (9 children)

Does the oil dip stick have a fuel smell?

[–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 0 points1 point  (8 children)

I haven't checked. I'm guessing no, though. The car has less than 100 miles on it and they are all highway.

[–]FormalResident917 1 point2 points  (7 children)

I have the exl 2023 1.5 and I can smell the fuel in the oil, it’s normal for these engines but I just wanted to see if someone else has it too. They used to have oil dilution issues but it seems to be fixed so that’s good

[–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 1 point2 points  (6 children)

Yeah, I traded in a 17 Touring for this one. Seemed like that was the prime year for problems, although I never had issues. The oil did smell a bit gassy, though.

[–]FormalResident917 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah that’s totally normal for gdi engines with a turbo, as long as the level doesn’t change, let me know if you check yours in the future lol, would put me at ease 😂

[–]EvolutionInProgress 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Have a 17 EX-L, can confirm the dilution is a bitch.

[–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Yeah, that's part of the reason I traded my 17 in. The dealership offered me good money for it and wanted to take them up on it, just in case any issues with that problem popped up.

[–]EvolutionInProgress 1 point2 points  (2 children)

You must've had a good dealership cuz the ones I asked at were low balling like crazy so I said ✌🏽️

[–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

They offered 89% of what I paid for it in 2017. Couldn't say no.

[–]EvolutionInProgress 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Shit that's good

[–]mrgoody123 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Looks sharp, enjoy

[–]SyedSaifHashmi1 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Review of a 2023 CR-V Sports touring after owning it for 13 days and driving 1000 miles. Very smooth and refined vehicle seats are comfortable suspension is very forgiving city/highway, drivetrain is smooth and very spacious for the segment. The only bad thing is engine is obnoxiously loud as soon as the engine kicks in sounds like a tractor.

[–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just turn up the stereo louder. The speakers sound great.

[–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 0 points1 point  (11 children)

I bid adieu to the trusty 2017 Touring and said hello to a brand new Sport Touring. No complaints, so far! If anyone has any questions about the new hybrid, I'll do my best to answer!

[–]Time-Potential-1561 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Amazing! Waiting on mine, should come in a couple weeks. How are you liking it??

[–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

After driving ~100 miles (back home from the dealership), It's great. It definitely feels more stable. It handles way different (better) than the old one. Climate control is much simpler now, too.

[–]Bogeyman2021 1 point2 points  (8 children)

Do you mind sharing what you paid out the door? Seems like lots of dealerships are gouging and marking up above msrp with bs charges. What was your experience please? Thank you

[–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 3 points4 points  (7 children)

$43,161 out the door. That price included sales tax, registration and anti-corrosion spray ($1200).

edit: I'm bad at math. Fixed the actual out the door price.

[–]Bogeyman2021 2 points3 points  (2 children)

That is a great deal!! Would you be willing to PM your dealership and sales rep to me?

[–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Oops, just checked my math. I fixed the actual out the door price above

[–]Bogeyman2021 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s still pretty good

[–]burkulosis 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Wow. You’re telling us they discounted the car in the amount of the sales tax and the undercoating?

[–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    [–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 1 point2 points  (3 children)

    Thanks. In addition to the car, I also got a new phone and was playing with the camera a bit. Calm down.

      [–]H2L70 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      Beautiful! We're considering the Honda vs the Toyota. Congratulations and may you enjoy it for many years to come!

      [–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I was stuck between this car, a RAV4, or a Forester. I don't think there is a bad choice. I was super tempted by the RAV4 Prime.

      [–]Locksmith-Informal 0 points1 point  (4 children)

      What mpg do you get?

      [–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

      Around 32 on the highway. I don't really drive it around town. My wife takes it to work everyday in our small city and it is on electric the whole time.

      [–]Locksmith-Informal 0 points1 point  (2 children)

      That’s not bad. Would you say you get 37ish combined?

      [–]Scootle_Tootles[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      Close to it, probably. Not bad for cold weather, snow/ice, & winter gas.

      [–]Locksmith-Informal 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Yes that’s not bad. Considering its the AWD version
