Summary:

The CR-V is a comfortable, reliable and fun to drive mid-size SUV

Faults:

The car has a noise in the rear axle when turning, I do not trust the dealer to repair it.

The steering wheel vibrates at high speeds.

General Comments:

The car has a great handling and enough power.

It is very roomy and comfortable.

Good gas mileage thank to the five speed automatic transmission.

Excellent stereo system.

Air conditioner could be better, It is hard to set a comfortable temperature.

It is easy to make mistakes when shifting from second gear to the drive position.

Convenient location of park break lever, adds space between front seats.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Noise in the rear differential is probably just old fluid. I had the same problem, changed the fluid and the noise went away. That was 2 years ago...
