2010 Honda Accord Crosstour: Missed Opportunity
April 26, 2010
There's a one-way street within walking distance of our offices that turns into an international food court of gourmet lunch trucks every day. Thai food, Indian food, mini burgers (one with truffles, even) served by a pretty Paris Hilton-lookalike, frozen lemonade, sassy bbq. No standard-fare roach coaches here. It's pretty rad. That's the rump of our long-term Crosstour on Lunch Truck Street.
I had intended to write my post today about trying to cram a deconstructed baby crib in the back of the Crosstour, but my hand-me-down-crib connection flaked on me this weekend. What does that have to do with the lunch trucks? Bupkis. But a photo of the cargo area without a crib in it seemed even lamer. If my second-hand crib does present itself for pickup again soon, I'll probably not go with the Crosstour again, though I was rather curious about how much of it would have fit. In fact, I think I just changed my mind, maybe I will take the Crosstour to pick up the crib after all.
As for what it's like to live with the not-quite-a-station-wagon, I can tell you that both my husband and I hit our heads on the rear door jamb this weekend while trying to strap our 4-year-old into her car seat. I'm sure we'd stop doing that eventually if this were our personal vehicle, but I found it interesting that we both did it separately.
BTW, I had Thai yellow curry. It was pretty tasty.
