Have an 08 (which is same as 07), the vehicle in my opinion is a little underpowered at low speeds.

My understanding is Honda engineered it that way to maintain decent gas mileage.

The 2010 has a little more hp, apprx 8 hp more.

There's enough power to merge onto the interstate without problems and it has a vtec engine so you can really nail the gas if you don't mind mpg suffering. It all depends what you're looking for in a small SUV. It can haul 5 adults around comfortably plus has incredible storage capacity plus it looks good.

It's no V6 but it's adequate. Mileage is decent. I get about 20/26 around the suburbs. On long trips I get around 30mpg with a fully loaded vehicle.

My other car is a V6 Nissan Maxima which has more than enough power so I'm used to the abundance of power. That's not what the CRV is, it's designed to get decent mpg while providing a comfortable people hauler with lots of storage. It's also reliable and will hold it's value better than most vehicles in it's class.

The power would not deter me from buying one though, it would just be nice to have a little more power but that was resolved when the 2010 was introduced.
