I am so happy you are ok!  Car accidents are NEVER fun.  Injuries heal thankfully!

My sister drives a CR-V and it is a great vehicle!  My aunt upgraded from her Hyundai Sante Fe to a Tuscon (I drive a Sante Fe and LOVE it).  I think both are really good vehicles and I haven’t heard anything bad, so I would look at which one appeals to you a bit more in terms of aesthetics and the features you want to have included in it, check out the difference in prices, and see how you are feeling about each one after that!  Good luck!

I don’t have advice on those exact models, but I do drive a Hyundai (Sonata) and absolutely love it! They make a great car and as a bonus you afford to put more upgrades into them since their base price is generally lower 🙂

I don’t know about Hyundais but I drive a CR-V (2003) and absolutely LOVE it.  My mom isn’t a super confident driver and she went out and bought one (2007, I think) after driving mine a couple times.  I’ve put about 80,000 miles on it in 3 years and the ONLY thing that has needed to be fixed was the O2 sensor.  I wouldn’t mind if it had a little better gas mileage (average about 24 mpg) but that’s not an issue with the newer models.  It drives like a car but just last night I went to Home Depot and loaded up a half a dozen 12 ft 2×4’s and two 2×8 sheets of plywood easily.  It’s freaking fantastic.  But then again, I’m not biased in the least.  Laughing

I have a 2007 CR-V and LOVE it!  I agree with Caitlanc, it has a smooth drive like and car but you can fit a ton of things inside!  I was able to fit a tall bureau (very heavy and thick) in the back laying the rear seats down.

Regarding safety, my brother’s co-worker (driving a CR-V) was hit from behind by a 18-wheeler, the CR-V then hit a barrier, the driver walked out of the car unharmed.  The police officer was amazed because of the impact (this was on a interstate with probably 65+ mph) the driver was okay.  He then told the driver he was going out that night to buy a CR-V!

Good Luck with your search.
