Hello all -
I'm considering the Honda CRV (either new or late-model used), but have a
question about its oddly-mounted shift lever (I will be shopping for an
Does it operate like a standard steering-column mounted shifter (which you
generally have to "depress", move to the next position, then "release" to lock
it in place...
Does it work like most floor-mounted auto shift levers, which can be freely
moved between the "Drive" and "Neutral" positions?
In other words, if you're driving along, coming to a stop, and you want to go
from "Drive" to "Neutral", can you just nudge it into neutral (and back to
drive) with a simple "push", rather than a "depress/move/lock" movement?
Believe it or not, that's a "car breaker" for me. If it doesn't work like a
floor-mounted lever, I'm not interested in the vehicle, and will shop for
something else that _does_
have a standard floor-mount auto shifter.
