Why the 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour?

Exterior styling

The Crosstour got hammered for strange exterior styling, but when I saw it in-person, it doesn't look half-bad. It seems to be a take-it-or-leave-it affair, with people who hate station wagons particularly peeved. But, give it a chance. It's a unique car, with all the good and bad that comes with that. It's never hard to find in a parking lot, either!

Interior styling

The interior in this car is, by far, the best of any I have owned, and as good as most luxury brands without the luxury pricing penalty. Cover the Honda "H" and you'll think you're in an entry-level Acura. Everything is within reach without being claustrophobic, everyone has room even with the seats back, and the ride quality is excellent while still maintaining some "sporting" qualities. This is a fantastic Grand Touring vehicle, with excellent lumbar support for the driver and plenty of cargo room with four people in the car.

Price or payments

I understand this car was knocked as being too expensive when it first came out, but purchasing this in 2010 is a dream come true. I got a luxurious interior with V6 and tons of cargo room for around $20k. Hard to beat!

Cargo capacity

The hidden under-truck cargo carrier is a brilliant solution to the problem of hauling emergency equipment and other materials you should always bring in a car, but don't want out (and sliding about) unless it's needed. Being able to flip the carpets to reveal a plastic back is fantastic. The back-seat lowing leavers are as convenient and useful as you'd expect. (Very!) Many reviews knocked the sloping roof line and the "squeezing" wheel wells between the cargo area and back seat. I find this ridiculous. Sure, it doesn't haul as much as a minivan or some small SUVs, but you're getting the wrong car if you want this to haul. Its station-wagon capacity prooves more than adequate.

Reliability & durability

It's a Honda. No problems in ~40k miles, and I'm not anticipating any in the next 100k. Our last Accord Station Wagon made it to 200k in our possession, at which point we gave it to a down-on-his-luck neighbor's family needing reliable transportation. As far as we know, it's on the road today.

Why Not the 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour?

Fuel economy

28 MPG, on a good day, with the wind at your back, downhill. For a full-sized sedan, it's not horrible, but in an age where cars are looking for 40+ MPG, it can be a little embarrassing.

Handling

For some reason, I find it difficult to park this car accurately. This is, in part, a transition from a compact Toyota Yaris to this beast, but I'd expect that to resolve itself by now. Visibility is okay--not great--and the car is pretty wide. Honda's wide turning radius doesn't help, either.
