2002 Honda CRV (93,500 miles) and 2001 Chevy Cavilier (53,000). Need to replace one, any advice?

I own a 2002 Honda CRV with 93,500 miles on it. I also own a 2001 Chevy Cavilier (4-door) with 53,000 miles on it. Both cars are in good condition. We use the Honda as the primary "family car". But, we commute (over 100 miles a day) with both cars. We are a family of 4 (with 2 small kids -- car seats) and are thinking to buy a new family car (4-wheel drive) this winter. I see advantages/ disadvantages to replacing each of the cars.

Replacing the CRV would give better trade in value. Replacing the Chevy would give two cars as 4-wheel drive. The new car would be the primary "family car." Which car would you replace and why?


Blue Book Values:

Chevy ~$3000.

Honda ~ $10,000.

    I would trade the Cavalier. Yes, it's got 40K fewer miles but in general the Hondas last much longer. Cavaliers are cheap little cars that don't hold up too well.

    Plus, the mileage on the Honda will hurt its trade in value compared to the Chevy with relatively low miles for a 2001.

    Hard to say! I have a CRV-EX and like it, but I drive so much less than you!

    I might trade the honda in just because it has more miles on it. Most Cavaliers are pretty good cars.
