I was hoping my CG would fit in a Soul (such a cute affordable car!), but it was too short. The Sportage works for a CG if the passenger seat is pushed all the way up. The only issue with the Sportage is that the car is a tad bit too narrow, so you would need to prop the elbow of the harp up on a pillow or two to get the side door closed; otherwise the elbow hits the door handle.
The KIA Sorento works well also. You can fit a passenger in the front seat. But I still had the issue of having to prop up the elbow.
But I’m thinking I will probably go with a Sportage or possible Sorento. I am interested in an Outback Subaru, but it is more expensive. Has anyone tried the 2011 or 2012 models with a 85CG?
I decided to go with the Subaru Forester–it fits my L&H 85CG nicely and is a lower price range than the Outback.
You might want to check out Subaru’s leasing program–that has worked very well for me; maintenance (and roadside assistance!) is covered under the affordable monthly payments (email me if you would like more details on the leasing).
I am getting 24 mpg on my Forester; however, since it is a brand new car, I expect the mileage to go up once it breaks in. Like Frances said, Subaru vehicles are known for their safety and reliability.
