The key with performance regardless of torque is power at certain speed. As long as the vehicle is in the right gear for the speed, more power always wins the race. The diesel is indeed very strong at low rpm, but it also doesn’t rev very high (I believe, redline is around 4500 rpm compared to the 2.4 gasoline motor which has it at about 6500 rpm or so I believe). This requires taller gearing for same speed. There might be a little edge with diesel, just not sufficient as the torque ratings would suggest. Besides, as I indicated earlier, diesel engine also seems to add weight (diesel Civic and Accord seem to be about 150 lb heavier than their gasoline counterparts).

Not enough power to pass on a hill?? What are you smoking?
The 2.4 doesn't have enough power to get OVER a hill, let alone pass a anything at the same time!

Do you guys have big families? Are you passing in the Rockies? The sucker really revs (our 2006) and in 4th or even 3rd if necessary I feel like I can pass. What kind of highway mpg are you squeezing out of a vehicle that has acceptable passing power?

2002 Windstar. 23 plus MPG on highway. Better without reformulated gas.
#42 of 86 Adding outside temperature display to 07 CR-V LX

Does anyone know how I can add an outdoor temperature sensor to my new CRV LX? It's the only thing I really miss from my previous car. I called the service dept at the dealer and the answer I got was that Honda can't do it.

Congrats on the CR-V EX-L...that is what I am considering but would order the Nav system. I like the back cam that it comes with. Wondering what your final price was. I was quoted here in MN $2895 with Nav. It would be nice to schmooz with the dealer and get a little off of that tho. I plan on ordering and waiting at least 6-8 weeks but don't want to settle for something I don't want. What color did you get? And which color seats did you get? Any extras like roof rack?...trailer hitch?

thanks, i actually saw that on the web. i don't really need the compass, just the temp. my preference would be a honda after market product but i don't think it exists. will look for a temp only which isn't too cheesy looking. thanks again!

Could use it today in St Louis. What a mess. Roads, trees, lawn and electric wires covered with ice and then snow on top.
