This is a pretty good read. What I like about HJ is that he will spend some time to get to know a car and he tends to focus on attainable cars instead of the exotics. He reviews a lot of cars during the course of a year, so when he likes something be sure to take note.

(Remember since he's in the UK, he's using UK miles so his mpg numbers are 1.2x greater than in the US.)

Honest John's Roadtest of the CR-Z

Also be sure to check out his video review as well. He even has a small critique of the rear seats.

(I want to run out to see if USDM cars have an airbag deactivation switch but there's an inch of refrozen ice between me and the car right now... :( )

@Kenny: I can relate to HJ's perspective as I used to have a chipped Golf IV TDI. If the CRZ didn't have some form of added torque I likely wouldn't have considered it.

HJs video production is admittedly noisy and low budget, but I like his practical perspective.

Regarding rear seats, note that the jdm and euro cars get a lever on the side of the seat (with some memory I presume) for folding the seat forward. I hate having to try to restore the USDM driver seat angle after folding it forward. If I need to stow something in the cargo bins, I find myself going to the passenger side.
