Yup, did about the same for my wife. A 2012 CR-V. She has told me flat out that she couldn't care less about cars. We even drove a new X3 before the CR-V purchase, she was barely impressed. As long as it doesn't get wrecked or have a catastrophic failure in 5-7 years, I'm sure we'll keep it, and I'll be out way less money than leasing two cars over that time period.
