    My new ride!

    A 2014 Honda CR-V EX. I had pics in another thread I made when trying to decide whether to get another car or not but decided to start this one since the pics were buried in that old thread. I have actually have had it for three weeks now. I love it so far. Some of you may recall that in December I got a 2014 Honda Accord EX. Well, after driving it for 3 months I just wasn't loving it because I missed my SUV. I sucked it up though and just dealt with it. Well, my sweet DH knew how much I missed my SUV so one day after work he stopped by the Honda dealership on his way home from work and test drove the CR-V. He then called me and asked me to drive down to test drive it. I finally gave in and went down there and the next thing I knew, DH was trading his paid off, never-going-to-part-with-it truck for the CR-V! He now drives the Accord and is very happy with it, especially the awesome gas mileage he is getting. I love having my SUV again. The only thing I don't like is not having the push button start. We have it in the Accord and it is offered in the Civic EX, so I can't fathom why Honda doesn't offer it in any of the CR-V 's! I got spoiled with it!

    I have a FR90 and an Argos installed in it right now and both were super easy to install. I also love that the LATCH anchors and seat belt stalks aren't buried in the seat like they are in the Accord and I love that the seat belt, stalks are rigid, which will make buckling boosters so much easier!

    Anyway, I love it aside from still having to use a regular key, especially the color of it ("Mountain Air Metallic. ")

    The color is what really drew me to it! It's different and not so common. It's a pretty blue-green color. My second choice was the Basque Red Pearl but I really wanted the black interior with the red exterior but when you go to the EX, you have to get a beige interior. I don't know why they do that! All of the other colors were the boring neutrals: black, white, gray.

    Nice! We just got the same thing a couple of months ago, and we LOVE it! We went with the Urban Titanium.
