We got a '99 Honda CRV and love it. They come in at about 20-22K loaded, get great mileage for a SUV, and are very practical. The 99 and above have more HP than the older models as well which makes a big difference for this model. It has AWD which I have felt kick in when the front wheels slip (like in gravel or mud).

Mind you, it is smaller than even a Blazer, but is plenty big for a small family if you are all average sized. It is definitely worth a look.

We have no kids, but the guy down the hall has two kids and this is their "family" vehicle for trips.

But, if you don't need a new car, it might not add much in the way of space over a regular passenger car. We like it mostly because of milegage and how great it is for trips and tailgating at football games and other outdoor events.

We looked at the other larger SUVs, and concluded that they are nice, but overpriced and get horrible gas mileage. For us,the CRV is perfect.

Regards,
Chris
