Hello everyone. Over the many years which must somehow is greater than the number of candles on my birthday cake.... (fire hazard regulations) I have owned a wide variety of vehicles. From VW bugs to Cadillacs. Fords, Subuarus, Chevys... from cracker-boxes to total Land Yachts. I've driven the range. This is my first Honda car (but not first Honda, having owned two Honda 350 motorcycles). After my 94 Ford Escort developed a final issue that was just too much to repair (after driving it for over a dozen years) I just a couple months ago picked up a 2006 Honda CRV. Based partly on what was available at the dealerships and the very impressive record of that particular model year. We'll see if this one will last another 12 years and match my Escorts longevity record.
