When you try it in the dry you'll find you even get a tiny bit of over-steer as you power out of corners.

I like the CR-Z, despite the general public dislike. A quick look on Fuelly shows that owners are beating the EPA numbers pretty easily.

I think Honda would have saved themselves a lot of grief if they would have just named it the Insight Sport. Suddenly, its the fun hybrid relative to the Insight, without the baggage of CRX comparisons. It would keep the expectations in check.

I definitely like it, myself. I'm not exactly sure how to classify it sometimes but it's definitely a cool car. It's down at the body shop getting de-badged now and Friday it gets the clear bra wrap.

I sold one yesterday to a former CRX owner. Today I like them even more.

How's the rearward visibility?

Good question and one I was wondering about up til I picked up the car. It's not as bad as some of the reviewers have made it out to be as you can see directly behind you for backing up, etc. and the mirrors are pretty good. I normally drive a '63 FJ45 though and you can't see jack out the side or back of it so factor that in for perspective. What hasn't been mentioned in any of the reviews that I've read is that from the driver's seat you can't see any corner of the car and you can't see the front. Out in a parking lot that's no big deal but in my garage trying to stick it in that one skinny spot between the shelving and that pile of stuff I wish I had a better place for?... that's a little different.

You can't see squat in tight quarters. I'm sure it's something you can get a feel for but it'll take a while and I hope it doesn't involve any contact.

Bump.

From our CR-Z owners how have they been doing?

For shits and giggles I looked em up and certified used EX models are going for ~17k and they likely have room to move from there so it's looking like a great bargain.
