Hi everybody. I know that this decision comes down to taste so all I am asking for is honest opinions. I am thinking about trading my 06 EX-L with nav for a Honda crz. I know they are two completely different cars. I just want to know if the people on this site know anybody that has one and if they like it.

Make your own decision. Book your trade in on three big sites available and divide it by three after adding them up to get a value depending on condition. Be Honest with the evaluation/condition of the car.

My cousin bought her first Honda last year - which is a silver CR-Z - she LOVES it! IMHO, as long as you stay Honda/Acura, you can't go wrong! My uncle/aunt are now considering buying a manual Accord after driving her CR-Z :) (they need a more family style car - not a tiny coupe) They were checking out my Accord and fell in love - asked how I liked it and my response "Are you kidding me? She's my favorite car and you know how many I've owned!"

I know the power will not compare to my v6 but does anybody have any seat time in both the auto and manual of these cars. is there a huge difference in power between the two crz's .

I was following this car VERY closely and wanted to own one while it was in prototype stage, and then I lost interest when they brought it to production as it was a shadow of what it could/SHOULD have been.

Though its not personal experience, I talked to someone that owns one at my work and they said it was a fun little car.

If you fell in love with the second girl then leave the first. If you really loved her you wouldn't have fallen for the second.

I love the CR-Z. If you're ready to give up the power and comfy seats of the Accord and you don't need to haul people or cargo, I say go for it!

You might be interested in this review of the CR-Z.

Thanks for this review. And thanks to everybody for the input. When the 84-91 CRX was new I did not have the money to buy one as I was still fairly young. I would love to have one of the 88-91 crx si's but the prices are crazy for nice stock ones and the cheaper ones have been destroyed by the younger crowed. Also to get a loan on a car that old is going to be unsecured money with high rates and short terms so that idea is out. I am still considering the crz. I think I would like to have one with nav and a six speed.

I read an article today in car and driver that said honda was going to start a factory performance division similar to nismo and that the first project would be the cr-z. Man that would be great to have the civic si engine in a cr-z. They did not mention specifics but I can dream.

If you are going to wait for a new CRZk, and don't mind the payments go ahead. I'd rather not have payments =)

My friend had a brand new 2011 CRZ, he traded it in within a year. It was too boring, and the fuel economy was not up to par. Also, when he wanted to drive spirited it was painfully slow, but did handle well.

It's not a bad car, but it's just lacking in the fun catagory.
