    Mainly, I miss my jeep's climate control. I think the higher trim level CX5's have it though.

    Yup the GT we have has it. Also gen 2 insulation advantage!

    The CX-5 doesnít warm up as fast as my GTI or ST did but itís faster than a lot of other stuff I have owned. So itís at least above average imo.

    Oh and gen 2 also has vents for the 2nd row.

    It will be a nice upgrade when I wear my gen 1 out.

    I went over to a CRV forum to read about the heat issue and wow. Seems odd to me as in other small turbo products Iíve found it to be the opposite so I wonder what Honda is doing wrong here. Maybe they need to design a cooling system with multiple circuits. I believe this in combination with the water cooled exhaust is why the GTI provides heat so quickly even in extremely cold conditions. ST Ecoboost also had water cooled exhaust but I donít remember if it could isolate that circuit the way the EA888 can.

    We have the most recent Civic with the same basic engine and the heating is fine. Smaller interior though of course.

    That's the problem! They made the interior of the CR-V more spacious than the climate control can handle.

    Yea I donít know as I donít have first hand experience with the CRV or Civic in cold weather. But with as many people that are complaining there must be something to it. Just seems really perplexing to me.

    My Infiniti heats up very quickly... never thought about correlating that to the engine size.
