I should have purchased my crv years ago, it's the best vehicle I've owned yet. I have a 20 month old and she loves it because she can see out the windows easily from her car seat. We took it on a road trip and it held as much luggage and etc. as our mountaineer did with A LOT better gas mileage. If I could afford to buy another one, me and my husband would both have one. He has plenty of leg room and he is 6 foot 4 inches. We think it's a great investment for the price.
I like the radio controls on the steering wheel. It's easy to get in and out of (esp. if you are a shorter person) The gas mileage is the biggest plus.
