Okay, so I know we've had threads like this before but I failed at the search function and anyway, it's 2013 so maybe there are new cars available? The criteria: Under $20k (or very close to it) out the door Room for two medium sized dog crates and trial gear (ez up, bags, etc) Way to comfortably crate out of the car with good circulation. Lucy's not able to be inside the building during trials, and there is not good enough air flow in a regular sedan. Although her crate fits in the back seat of my civic, it's not ideal. I want to be able to lift the back and drape shade cloth. Sun roof and heated seats (okay, not necessity, but would really, really like) Used is fine if it's 2-3 years and has less than 40k miles on it Top contenders are the new Ford Escape (completely flat folding rear seats in the 2013 model!!) and the mazda CX-5 (would end up being over budget though). I think in either case to get what I want in those models I'd need to wait a year or more for used versions. I haven't tried squishing crates into a used CR-V yet. That's on my to-do list. Any other models I should try? The Nissan Rogue was too small in the back. I don't like the square boxiness of a lot of the proposed "dog cars", despite them fitting crates better. Are there regular cars that magically have extra space? A hatchback that is still cute? What do you have that you love for dog trials?
