Automatic shift recommendation on a CR-V

Automatic shift recommendation on a CR-V

The question I have is about the Honda automatic transmission from 5-speed compared to the current 6 or mine new BMW from 8 or those of Audi from 7. Is an outdated box? It works well? Does it maintenance issues? What about their performance? I hope I aclaréis these doubts because the car is me attractive, but do not want to dispense with the automatic transmission.

Further understand by your question that you are happy with the ways and delivery of your box BMW, I guess it would be even of six gears. The new eight-speed BMW is a delight for speed and stop worrying poderte quite the way in which you go: whenever you step on the accelerator, that's what you ask the motor. The box of five marches Sling it's new. Development to compete with six gears. And Why five ?, asked when he was introduced. And why not ?, We responded. For being so new, we have no information fault, if any, silenced by the warranty. It's soft, is fast, but is not the BMW, which is a reference. But if you like the car, which happens to be writing for many of the most "round" of its size, yours would compare it to what you lose in front of the manual. as the CR-V weight. Our test unit brushed the 1,800 kilos. Box does so well that does not lose too much face six-speed manual. And that's saying a lot for the weight difference having both units. He lost only four tenths in 0-100 km / h (And that with figures down 10 seconds, which is not bad) and this difference was maintained until having traveled one kilometer acceleration. Come on, if not a model box, it combines perfectly with the car, which is that, and not consumption rose liter in our city tour.
