We're going to buy one of these two. The CR-V is something I've wanted for a long time, but enter the Equinox. Supposedly gets 5 mpgs better mileage, has a longer wheelbase, is larger and has a really kid friendly dual DVD player package for the rear seats, none of which the CR-V has. Obviously, we're looking at the more decked out ones. Mileage is important to us, its hard to ignore 5 mpgs on a large vehicle. The Equinox's 6 speed automatic is Korean built, which I'm not sure is a good or bad thing (any history on this?). GM trannies have always been suspect for me. Tonight we get to keep an Equinox overnight, and I plan to drive it to the Honda dealer to do a side-by-side comparison. The Equinox is slightly more expensive, but I think we can negotiate. Unfortunately, the Equinox has no track record, and its hard to know how it will fair. We plan on keeping this car for 10 years, so keep that in mind. Opinions?
