Re: Just An Observation
I think its marketing. Honestly I never really paid attention to the RL until the past 6 months or so when I started shopping for something with a bed. I see them on the road from time to time, but always thought they looked a little odd and never paid much attention.
That is, until I really assessed what my needs were and how wonderfully the truck fit them. Then I test drove one. Then I wrote out a check and signed 5 years of my life away.
I was the same way. When I first saw the RL, I thought it was funny looking. Unique and odd, but not necessarily appealing. About a year later, I was selling for a Honda dealership. I still remember driving the RL for the first time. At that point, I was completely hooked. Then, in my early 20's, I had no way at all of affording one, but vowed that I would have one someday. Four years later when my car pretty much kicked the bucket and I was much more financially stable, I got one. I considered pretty much every other vehicle available to me, but I just kept coming back to the RL. It met and still meets my needs in every way possible. The increased interest in them over the last year or so is encouraging. I just hope Honda does the 2nd gen RL right. Not like the 2011 Civic and more like the 2013 Accord.
