Are the masses always right? We give Congress the sort of approval ratings that would fire almost anyone in any job, then overwhelmingly reelect them all. We spent a reported $402 million at the box office on the unwatchable "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." We like coffee with extra caffeine and reality TV with extra housewives.

Good thing there's the Honda CR-V, America's best-selling SUV in 2012 and 2013. This time, we made the right call.

The five-seat SUV comes in LX, EX and EX-L trims with front- or all-wheel drive. Compare them here. All three have a four-cylinder engine and automatic transmission. I tested a loaded, all-wheel-drive CR-V EX-L.
