    Talking Sharing the good news: '09 Royal Blue EX is mine!

    With a little sadness, I traded in my '02 Eternal Blue LX and picked up a beautiful '09 Royal Blue EX. I now have the pleasure of owning one of each generation 'V - a 1999 EX AWD (great but underpowered), the '02 LX (great but feeling its age) and now the '09.

    The '09s refinement is very evident from fit and finish all the way to the creature features. I missed my sunroof that I had in my Lexus RX and finally have that feature again. And Honda did it right with the wind buffeting and noise. Very well done, IMHO.

    Only minor complaint is the lack of coverage storage bins as compared to the gen. 2 V. However, I really like the rear deck lid. I really like this.

    Before pulling the trigger on the '09 V, I had also looked at a '09 Element but the test ride convinced me and the missus that the V was the clearer winner of the two. Plus I really love the color blue and there wasn't a blue EX Element on the lot.

    Strange thing is right after I drove off the lot with the '09 and I saw at least six gen. 2s on the road at different points. Made me feel sorta sad.

    Anyway, I'm thrilled with day 1 with my '09! :-)

    I'll post some pictures at a later date...
