    I'm currently looking into getting one of these cars for my wife but I am wondering which is the best overall purchase for value and reliability. What do you all think? Any of you own either of these? Any known issues?

    there is no question. Honda.

    Government Motors can't compete in reliability. The CR-V is one of the most reliable vehicles on the road and it holds its value like the Tacoma.

    Well..Honda CRV is definitely more reliable in my IMO. But I don't like the 2012 CRV's they look a little weird now..Also, the Honda probably gets better MPG's, but I also don't know much or have heard much about the Terrain

    I test drove the terrain and actually liked it. I think GM has come a long way.

    Me and my wife were looking at the new 2012 models and they are nice as well as comparably cheaper than other cars in its class. It's also probably slightly smaller though. I just want a vehicle that I can trust to last up to around 200,000 miles with no big issues.

    Wife and I had an 06 CRV. Good little car but she wanted more cargo room so we got a Pilot. I didn't like the 07 and up model CRVs thought they looked uglier but I think I heard they just redesigned the 12 but haven't seen. Honda is good quality but you pay a little more for it.

    I would go with Honda or Toyota. The Gm will not even make it out of warranty without major repairs. I see the Chevrolet version every day. They have timing chain issues and other engine problems.

    If you want to go to 200k with very few issues then you can throw the GM out the window. Go with the Honda. It will last.

    We bought a 2011 CRV for my wife (as a family car). We love it! Plenty of cargo room for stroller, shopping bags, etc.
    Love the fact that you can recline and slide the rear seats. - Good MPGs.

    the terrain was voted real bad on consumer reports

    and yahoo

    Small SUVs


    Toyota RAV4
    Toyota RAV4
    Introduced in 1996, the RAV4 was the first car-based SUV. It was agile and comfortable but small and underpowered. The 2001 redesign brought more power and a roomier interior. ESC arrived in 2004. For 2006 Toyota added an available third row. Throughout its life the RAV4 has had stellar reliability.

    Other good choices:
    Honda CR-V
    Subaru Forester
    Mitsubishi Outlander

    Cargo room is a big topic for debate between the CR-V and the Terrain. The Terrain seems to provide a lot more room. The 2012 CR-V rear seats also do not slide.

    Trust me, I was like TOYOTA TOYOTA! :goingcrazy:

    but the Highlander is a little bit too expensive since we are looking for the models loaded with all of the "features" :(

    I saw a few issues with the RAV4 as well which turned me off to them. I have yet to find any real major concerns with the Honda CR-V.

    After further investigation of a few instances I have researched it seems like there is a scattered issue of PAINT with these cars. Like bubbles forming and what not.

    The only problems i remember about Honda Cr-V's are the rear diff, and they had a real nasty issue torching valves.

    I dont trust GM
