Yeah. My wife opt'd for a new Honda CRV after trying out an X3 (no X1's at the time). She figured the X3 was not worth the $20K premium. But the CRV's gas mileage has been very disappointing. I think they are asking too much out of the 4 banger VTEC engine. It is a very nice vehicle for $30K but the power is not BMW power and the gas mileage sucks.
