So I reviewed the dash camera video from the tornado/crash day on Monday, and never once did I say out loud that I would give up my van to see a tornado. I know many people make such promises in times of peril, but those words, nor any related, were ever said out loud, nor do I recall thinking them. Still, I guess I offered it as a sacrifice to the weather gods for a tornado on that POS setup day. Still waiting on the formal word form her insurance people, but they put me in a rental yesterday, so I can pretend that she will be found 100% liable. They obviously were dicking me around, trying to determine whether I could've avoided the accident. I am going to send pictures tomorrow with the police report showing that her impact was between my driver headlight and tire, then proceeded to damage the side of the van as I drove by. Obviously everything happened off to my side, so I don't see how I could've avoided anything. Assuming that gets finalized, I will begin the process of vehicle shopping. I am going to invest, not just in a chase vehicle, but a comfortable ride. After driving a 2015 Honda CR-V for a lot of my tenure at WSIL in southern IL, I kinda fell in love with the vehicle and think it would make a good choice for a chase ride, it's roomy enough, practical, and AWD is a MUST, particularly for winter ventures. However, I have also looked at the Mazda CX-5 as a competitor as well. I am lacking any time driving one of those, but it's a similar ride to the Honda and priced about the same. Anyone have experience with either of those? Or another mid-size SUV? I'd be open to suggestions.
