My husband prefers that we take our 2010 Honda CRV because he said it's safer, have the wear and tear on the older car. I responded the reason we bought the Clarity Plug In is so that we can take on long road trips. Our Honda CRV gives about 22/mpg? It is bigger but what we'll be taking will fit in the trunk of the Clarity. He feels it would be safer with the CRV with the 2 kids in the back seat. I am trying to convince him that we should take the Clarity. Would appreciate any feedback from those who have made the long drive. Thanks.
