Need advice for Honda CRV

I have CRV 2008 with 80K miles on it. Few months back I replaced it with new tires, alignment etc. ($900) and recently I replaced the rear brakes (callipers, fluid etc.) that costed me $550. I am thinking since the vehicle is getting older, these kinds of maintenance will come up in future and I don't know how much more I will have to spend. Is it a good idea to sell this vehicle and purchase a sedan / SUV with 10-30K miles on it? That way, I don't have to worry on major maintenance costs. I am not inclined towards CRV as I don't really see a need for space (family of 3) and not very comfortable (ride is bumpy on rough roads). I am leaning towards either Accord/Camry (as my budget is <20K). Please help.

    Thanks kyfdx. Here are the parameters I am thinking for sedan: 1) good enough space for my little one's stroller, 2) comfortable ride for both rear and front passengers, 3) decent interior space (front/rear), 4) decent mileage (city/highway). I didn't include reliability as Toyota/Honda are synonymous with it. I will be keeping the vehicle for at least 3-4 years.

    Which one (Accord/Camry) has bigger interior and trunk space? In general, why is Accord pricier than Camry? I have always seen fantastic reviews for both these models, neck-neck on reliability,safety (crash tests) etc.

    If I go for premium segment, would you recommend Acura TLX or Lexus ES 350? Should I be looking at newer CRV (as in improvements on ride comfort)? Any other options I should be looking at?
