2011 Accord Crosstour Owner Reviews (2)
Very comfortable price and ride .... but .... there are some real negatives

Honda created the CrossTour ... and notwithstanding some negative press about the exterior styling .... all in all ... I enjoy the car. However, the techies at Honda really botched the Nav System. It's not user friendly, not intuitive . And - really frustrating to use and operate. (As a comparison, I also own a Lexus SUV and a MB Coupe - and both Nav Systems are easy, smart, seamless and extremely user friendly). Also, having a rear camera - without an audible alert - is not an ideal situation.
Love this vehicle

It took me over 2 months to decide on a so called crossover type vehicle for my wife's birthday. I read many of the comments that were alledged to have been made by by owners of various makes and models (including comments made on this site) and I test drove many of them myself. All but the Crosstour had problems with either mpg, ride,road noise, interior fit and finish,recalls, etc. I eliminated one leading manufacturer because of the cheap, easily stratched, gray plastics that they use on the interior of their vehicles; for example, I previousely owned a 2008 Tundra Limited(good resale value despite cheap interior plastics) and traded it in for 2009 Avalanche LTZ which wife and I love except for mpg and the useless Navigation.I liked what I read about the Crosstour except for comments ********* exterior appearance; however, when I actually saw a black Crosstour in the parking lot of Walmart, it changed everything. I liked some of the Crosstour pictures I had seen online; however, I loved the way it looked in real dimensions . The next day I took wife to a local Honda dealership and for her it was love at first sight except for the color. The salesman talked her into taking a test drive and she really loved the handling and smooth ride. The wife wanted black or red, so when I returned home I went to the TrueCar site and found a dealer in Virginia with the price I liked and the color my wife liked. We both love the Crosstour and drive it more than our other two vehicles.
