I just bought a CRV, and have done 2 pin moves with ease. The seats fold flat at a pull of a handle.
27/33 MPG, and base model features are outstanding.
But what sold me was resale value...What I paid for base model was less then 1 year old of same with mileage.
Whatever you choose, if you think you will keep 5 or 7 years, look at the value held for the same vehicle thats 5 years old. Its very surprising.
Between this, gas mileage, Tires, and service ratings/cost, I found close to a 30% difference, or from $5K-7.5K difference in cost when amortized between vehicles to own.
Your needs may be different based on Snow/hills, 4WD,....Family size, and personal taste....but I am so glad to finally be hauling my own!
(My friends are happy I am not bugging them too!)
Congrats and Enjoy whatever you may decide!
