I'm considering getting a new "to me" car in the next 6 months, mostly because my coupe is hard for my kids to get in and out of, only has 4 seats and has over 170k miles. Does anyone have any of the 3 cars I mentioned and care to weigh in?

I really love my CRV. Great gas mileage and perfectly seats 3 in the back. I know that's not any of those 3 with the exception of it being Honda like the Accord.

 My brother had an Altima and he loved it, had well over 170k miles on it and was still going strong except for the ac.  My mom had a camry which she would have driven into the ground if it hadn't developed a leak and was getting wet everytime it rained.   I myself am partial to Honda in general I just love them, my stbxh's first car was an 84 accord he drove it until it had over 240k miles then he ran over a road block and tore something in the undercarriage that was too expensive to fix.   I have a CRV myself.    Any of these cars is a good choice, they all last long.  The Altima is the "lesser" (lack of better word) model from Nissan so it really shouldn't be compared to the Accord or Camry.  The Nissan most comparable to Accord and Camry is the the Maxima.   If you compare the ride of the the three I think the Accord is the smoothest but the Camry comes in a close second, as far as dependability they are evenly matched.

I have an '05 Accord that has been awesome! No problems AT ALL. Great on gas and like I said, no issues at all. It's a very reliable car.

We have a CRV too and are very happy with it.  My cousin has had Accords for as long as I can remember.  Every time she wants a new car she trades it in for the newer model.

I had a Camry,. and I loved it. It was too small for trips that we take in the car often, so I had to get rid of it. That thing was a 1992, and ran like a top. The guy I sold it to is still pushing it at over 200,000 miles.
