I bade farwell today to my internal combustion companion of 5 years, my RAV4 (known as Ravvie by my kids). A long search with many twists and turns culminated in the discovery of a stick-shift Honda CRV at Huey's Honda.
After the traditional bartering a deal was struck, and I am now searching for a good name for the new car.
This is actually the third time I've tried to buy a Honda, and as they say, the third time is a charm.
My RAV4 has been a good car, and I hope it goes on to serve its next owner as faithfully. The family just got a little too big for it.
I'm amazed how few cars you can buy these days with a stick-shift. Don't they know that some of us, despite wife, family, and steady job, will not grow up and want an automatic? I would serously have considered the Honda Pilot except that it, alas, has only an automatic transmission (at least in this country).
You can always get the Porsche SUV/Wagon thing that goes from 0-60 in 6 seconds... Porsches always come in manual.
How often do you see a car full of kids racing a Porsche around town?

Yeah I thought about the Porsche, but I didn't like the layout of the AC/heating knobs.
