Default 2007 CRV

I was looking at the new CRV and really like the rear door that opens
upward rather than sideways. In general the vehicle looks more
polished. I was however disappointed that they have kept the same
engine. That engine while good for reliability still requires the
expensive timing belt service. With the increase in vehicle weight and
the 2.4L engine only managing 160 HP at a fairly high rpm. The
performance numbers demonstrate its mediocre power. The CRV is under
powered when compared to the others in its class i.e. Subaru, Toyota
and the new Mitsubishi. Maybe next year they will upgrade ?

The 2.2L diesel that they use in the UK would be a smash hit
here in the good old USA. 260 ftlbs of torque would really
make the CRV jump off the line. Plus getting 30% better milage.

Yes Lynn. Give me a 2.2 L Diesel or even a small 2.5-2.7 L V6 or I6
engine.

I'm pretty sure that engine is chain-driven.

I think you are right. I have the 2.4L in an '04 Accord, and its got a
timing chain.

If you take the engine head cover off, you'll see that it's a chain. It
is the same engine that's been in an Accord since 2003. Even Honda
mechanics don't know that it's a chain.... Scarry.

Cheers.
