Default Trouble with 2004 CR-V Honda Ex?

I have a 2004 CR-V Honda EX and I am having trouble with it and haven't had it for very long. The gears change hard most of the time and its really hard on gas. I have to run it at a high APM and it seems like it is holding back alot.















I was wondering if anyone is having the same problems or if they are having problems period with this type of vehicle and if so what are the problems you are having?















Thanks

If that's the first Honda you've owned, the gear changes may feel somewhat more harsh than what you're used to with some domestic cars. Definitely have the fluid checked, and if it is burned or contaminated have it changed with genuine Honda auto trans fluid.















As for the fuel mileage: have you calculated the actual miles per gallon, or just see the gauge go down and think it's using too much gas? The US EPA estimate for combined driving is only 21mpg, so anything +/- 5mpg is normal (depending upon driving habits).
