Today Lorna traded our Ford Ranger pickup in on one of these, a Honda CR-V 4WD EX-L. The primary requirements were that it had 4-wheel drive and had heated leather seats to treat her bottom with the respect it deserves - and it wasn't my pickup. She passed on the $2000 navigation option. I think it was a good choice and it will suit her well. People living in more temperate climes may think 4-wheel drive is an unnecessary luxury. Given the street we live on and our region, it isn't. My back hurts right now from pushing our neighbor's new sleek black Lincoln front-wheel drive something or other, which was stuck solid in the middle of the lane. It was hung up on the 4-6" of snow that unexpectedly turned into 10-12" on 4" of ice ruts, and it's still coming down.
