2012 Honda CR-V: Great Expectations

I knew the CR-V could haul plenty of stuff for my kid's birthday party -- coolers, ice tub, chairs, an old pigskin -- but I didn't think it would have the depth to haul two 8-foot long folding tables. A fold-flat front passenger seat like the Honda Fit's would have made easier work of this task, but as it was this was simple.

Slide the seat max forward, recline until the seatback met the folded second row, remove the headrest and slide the tables to the windshield. There was still almost another foot of clearance to the liftgate. Impressive.

No room for the kid and her mom, though. I left them at home and ate the cake by myself.
