Goodbye CRV, Hello Forester

The other day we sold my Honda CRV and bought a new car. We've been talking about doing this since we moved here, but finding the right house took a lot more time than we thought, and things just got crazy, so we finally got around to doing it. 
It was so bittersweet. I've had the CRV for 9 years and it's full of such great memories. This is the car we brought Chloe home from the hospital in, so many fun road trips and countless moments spent in that car. I know it's an inanimate object, but it felt like apart of me. The Honda was such a great car, and in those times when we really couldn't afford a car payment I remember praying to God to keep it going. He was more than faithful as it was still going at 191,700 miles! 
I'm excited about out new (well new to us) Forester. It feels so fancy compared to my old car! My Honda was the base model, but this new car has some fun upgrades like heated seats. 

So here's to starting new memories in our new car!

It’s true. Honda CR-V is one of the best crossovers you could ever drive. Many test drivers have already shared their positive feedbacks about it. However, it can be hard to make a comparison between a CR-V and Forester, unless it's based on a personal opinion. Both of them are very notable on their own!

I agree with Colin. It’s quite difficult to choose which of those two is more reliable to drive. But I don’t think you have to make comparisons, when you have enjoyed the experience of driving both of them. You might have been very happy with your CR-V, but I’m sure you will have exciting adventures with the Forester as well. Drive safe!
