  1. Ryan’s bad (no, terrible) sound makes good video look bad. (Another microphone input selection failure/error?) Please always make a test recording and check it before start your presentations.

  2. Love the new HR-V.

  3. Team CR, How is this possible? Honda got so many things right with the new HR-V like decent handling and ride quality through an upgraded (IRS) as well as maintaining exceptional space efficiency. Then they completely blew the powertrain with the 2.0 CVT combination that manages to be under-powered and inefficient 🤨 On the subject of Independent Rear Suspension, I hope Mazda subscribes to your channel 😉

  4. i can get a rav4 for that msrp. honda’s pricing is out of control on the new models they have been releasing

  5. Unloved? Not sure about that.

  6. mazada 3 is extremely tight and cluster phobic and somewhat loud. mazada 3 sounds really good on paper but test drive it first.

  7. Tthe front is like its a ford product…….the UK version is more beautiful

  8. Does the Acura Integra have the same 1.5 turbo engine that CR reported the oil dilution problem with Civic and CR-V?

  9. The Mazda 3 (non turbo) is available with a manual.

  10. He’s a cutie on the right, Alex? 158 HP? My current SUV is well over 400 HP!

  11. Honda did a lot right here, but not offering the 1.5T was a mistake, very slow to 60-you should not offer any less than 180/185 HP with a 3000 lbs plus car

  12. How was the seat comfort? Also, does the lack of rear AC vents affect your decision on the car?

  13. It’s one of the ugly design from Honda

  14. Lol… plain simple, a boring nothing burger car

    Ryan is back 😍😍

  16. Maybe instead of reading out loud crediting who produced and edited the episode you can have it in text under the CR subscribe thing at the end. Of course no biggie to read it aloud but it kinda messes with the ending flow of the episode as we’re not used to hearing it being said. Perhaps we can get more questions in each episode like before. Just some feedback but I appreciate CR!
