    And it’ll be my car, so in case I do get divorced and have to sleep in it, I should get a nice one.

    I hate loans that last 6 years, but the car will easily last 10, so if the $380/month is manageable get it.

    J will be happy. Paco will be safe. Win-win.

    We have a 9 year old Honda and it still looks pretty good for it’s age! Great engineering as well! There’s a reason why they’re so heavily involved in motorsports!

    And my CBR 600 was so much fun. Why did I have kids?!:(

    I have a 2018 CRV that I’m currently paying on.
    Here’s what I found when I was shopping around,
    All those safety features come standard that you have to pay extra or bump up to the highest package level to get with the other brands.
    that’s a savings right there if you want those features.
    Sure they can be annoying, but it’s saved me from plowing into the back of some jerk who decided to cut into my lane going much slower than the traffic.
    Also as you have found, Honda’s hold their value better than other brands.
    It’s a comfortable ride with flexible cargo space and I’m carting two young children around everywhere.
    My son’s only requirement for the new car was to have A/C vents in the rear, which the CRV has and my previous vehicle didn’t.

    my only gripe is that the engine is small for the size of the car. It’s great for gas mileage, but it takes a long time to warm up when it’s cold out, so the remote start is a must.

    Agree! The Quadrifoglio 505 HP version, that would be a dream car! Crazy beast that can do 60 in 3.8s..

    For more practical purposes, the Skoda Kodiaq in Bahama Blue Smokeburst is quite nice!

    So that's what you do with them?

    My dad helped bring me into the world to mow the lawn...I know this, because he told me so.
