I leased a base CR-Z with the CVT transmission and took delivery on the 24th of August.
I previously had a 2010 Fit for about 2 months which I didn't care for and was able to get into the CR-Z for about 350 a month (which includes some negative equity from the FIT).
The CR-Z from my experience thus far is that its totally awesome. I find it to be very comfortable and its quite zippy in sport mode. The gauges are like something out of a spaceship (or rather, what I imagine them to be like) and I am getting 41mpg !
I love this car and in fitting with its spaceship gauge cluster I have named it E.T.
Can anyone tell me how I can post a picture of it here ?
#4 of 7 Perl White CRZ

I bought my Perl white CRZ EX CVT W/O NAV on Sept. 23rd. I drove from Des Moines to Mankato MN. to pick it up. I paid 21,351. The dealership, Luther Mankato Honda, were no pressure straight shooters. They got me a 3.39% 60 mo. loan with no down. I previously had a camry hybrid. I loved it but it was totaled. I drive the CRZ in econ most of the time and get about 37.6 mpg combined. I can probably do better if I really try. Occasionally I'll switch to sport mode to show the odd aggressive driver what's up. I love the futuristic dash. The rest of the interior is just average. I use the paddle shifters to down shift for corners and to get some pickup when necessary. Most of the trade mags compare it to the CRX and beat it up over that. Its a CRX in looks only and it does look sharp. I get looks all the time and people ask me what it is. The rear view and side blind spots are terrible. I immediately got some stick on convex mirrors. It doesn't ride like a camry but that's to be expected. All in all it's a fun car that lets you sip gas when you want to and spin the tires when you want to.

I have the CVT. I bought it in Minnesota and drove it to Iowa the same day. It has been getting 38.2 mpg no matter city or highway. I keep it in econ mode all the time except when I need the pickup. Now that it's colder I'm getting about 37.7.
