I'm thinking of getting a new car in the next year or two and I am wondering what people think a good replacmeent would be?

What I like about my 2012 V6 Crosstour:
I like driving position/height.
I like the power.
I like how quiet the car is.
I like the hatchback - let's me change shoes before hiking.
I like the handling.

What I don't like:
The blind-spot.
Breaking distance seems long.


I've looked at the CR-V and didn't like it for these reasons:
Lack of power
Noisier.

What would be a good replacement. I'd like to spend $30k of under unless there's a car that's so wonderful it's worth the extra money.

Don't know if it's in your price range, but the Honda Passport has a V6 engine, minus the 3rd row seat of the Honda Pilot. If I bought one, the first thing I'd do is disable the VCM.

In 2012 I purchased a 2012 CT fully loaded (black on black). In early 2015 I upgraded to an Acura TLX Advanced fully loaded (black on black) and love it. A great upgrade.

Third quarter of 2020 the 2021 Crosstour may be released. I would wait to make a decision while researching the options.

Yeah. I found a 2018 Acura TLX SH AWD A tech here in Indy for $25,700. In red, no less. There's not a thing wrong with my 2015 CT but, man oh man, is that TLX calling to me! J35 engine with an 8 speed.

You can find a lot of used cars on Facebook Marketplace if you are not planning to get a brand new vehicle. Reading and researching will help you figure out which car will suit your needs.

I had a 2012 EXL 4WD that I traded for a 16 Acura TLX SHAWD Tech package. Not sorry I did. Fun car to drive. A lot more fun than the Crosstour. And it will still get you home in bad weather. I'll add that I really, really liked my Crosstour.

In about 6 weeks I’m replacing my garage kept 2014 White Diamond on Black Crosstour EX-L V6 with 56895 miles (it had 12 miles day of purchase) for a Model Y Duel Motor White on Black. I have driven Model X, S, and 3; to me the Y is a combination of all three. Actually, it’s like the X and 3 had a baby.

There’s a long story behind my decision, but know it has brought tears to my eyes. I absolutely love my CT. To this day I still get “what car is that or that’s a Honda?” and wow, that’s pretty sporty looking where can I get one”?

The jury is still out if I’m going to trade it or sell it. My husband told me I can keep it and sell it later if that will make the transition smoother, but to me that’s not practical. It's time to move on.

I know you want to stay around $30k, in my opinion the Model Y is worth the extra money.

I despise Tesla as a man, and my living situation means I can't install a charger.

Also I've heard to many stories of bad Tesla part availability.

But I do know 2 people who own model S's that they are in love with.

Understandable. If we didn't have a garage to charge it we wouldn't be in the market. Also, there are hundreds of videos on YouTube of Tesla owners sharing their good and bad experiences. We have a list to check off or deny delivery.

It's all good, just thought I'll throw in my 2 cent...live long and prosper!

I may be in the market for a second CT at some point.

My 21-year old has "wanted" my CT since I drove it home new from the dealer. That in itself is a funny story. She kept talking about CT's when they first hit the street and kept telling me that I should buy one. The day it was purchased I parked it in front of the neighbor's house. My daughter noticed there was one of "those cars" next door and I walked outside with her to check it out. As we got close, I clicked the remote to unlock it :giggle:
