Default Accord or CRV?

i live in a military base down in Mississippi i've been looking for a car/suv that can go over some gravel roads and some tall mountains in Tenn but mostly highway everywhere here takes an hour to get to and i go on trips to Florida or Chicago either once or twice a year I'm single so mostly i need it to haul my groceries or at most 2 pieces of luggage also I'm looking for a little more hp than my (what feels like)114hp sentra and gas mileage doesn't matter that much what sounds like a better pick

MAybe a blazer would be good for you. It also gets decent gas mileage. My girlefriend has had one for years now and never had a major problem. But between the two cars you have selected I would pick the CRV. More room. An SUV. OK gas mileage.

Our family drives both cars, and the CRV would be closer to what you're looking for. Honda's got an adequate amount of pep built into the CRV, though it's a good bit slower than one of it's competitor's Toyota's V6 RAV4. Since you said you'd be happy with a little more power, you might find the CRV to be the ticket. Otherwise, the next best thing Honda offers is its $33K Acura RDX (a 240hp, turbocharged. sport-tuned, luxury equivalent to the CRV).You might give a CRV a test drive...bet you'll like it.

The Accord and CR-V are excellent selections, but the Toyota RAV4 is too. All three have rather equivalent reliability (few serious problems); they're 1999-2003 Reliability Percentrank (the latest available) are well into the 90s. (See AutoOnInfo.net's Table I-MVRP at http://www.AutoOnInfo.net/Reliabilit...nkAverages.htm .) All three are also on AutoOnInfo.net's Best Automobiles of 2008.With regard to horsepower, the 4-cylinder CR-V has 166 horsepower, the 4-cylinder Honda Accord LX and LX-P have 177 horsepower, the 4-cylinder Honda Accord EX and EX-L have 190 horsepower, and the 4-cylinder Toyota RAV4 has 166 horsepower.

I would go for the Accord. Better handling and I feel it is more fun to drive. Even the coupe has plenty of room for 4 adults and a decent size trunk. Accord 4 cylinder also has slightly more power (177 or 190 hp vs. 166 hp) and weighs a little bit less than the CR-V, so it will feel faster and more responsive. You can also get a 268 hp V6 in the Accord. In the CR-V only the 4 cylinder is available.If you enjoying shifting gears yourself, only the Accord is available with a manual transmission. The CR-V has a 5 speed automatic as standard equipment with no option for a manual. The Accord comes standard with a 5 speed manual in all 4 cylinder models, but all Accords can be equiped with a 5 speed automatic. The V6 sedans come with the auto standard and the V6 coupe can be had with a 6 speed manual.Since you don't care that much about gas mileage, I would get the Accord V6 Coupe with the 6 speed manual.
