    Advice Needed...2018 Nav/RES or 2016 Touring

    We are in the market for a van and have decided on a Honda. In our price range, we can afford a 2016 Touring with 36,000 miles on it or a 2018 EX-L Nav/RES with 48,000 miles. Not sure which way to go. We do have a garage space issue. Our width clearance is only 94 1/4 inches. The 2016 is 91.5 wide and the the 2018 is 92.3 inches wide with mirrors. I know the ‘16 fits, but it is tight. I am also a bit concerned with the issues I have read about with the new body style change. Is the 2016 a better built car that will give us less issues? Any advice is appreciated!

    Easy choice as far as I am concerned... the 2016 every day and twice on Sundays. Fewer miles (by a lot, proportionally speaking) and a much better sorted out vehicle. Even the potential trouble spots in the 2016 are well understood with viable solutions to most of them. A lot of the maintenance falls well within the capabilities of a motivated owner.

    The 2018 does have all the latest safety tech, which is nice - no doubt about it. But the potential trouble spots are not yet as well understood and/or solved as they are in the older model.

    There is no contradiction in having a soft heart and a hard mind.
