Hello fellow car lovers. In January, 2014 we traded our 2008 DCP Ridgeline RTL with 62K miles, for a brand new 2014 Ridgeline RTL in Obsidian Blue with Gray leather interior. While negotiating the deal on the 2014, we decided to also lease a new 2013 Honda Civic to use as our commuter car. My wife and I commute together into the city so the plan was to put all the commuter miles on the Civic and leave the Ridgeline parked in the garage for weekend or work use. The Civic is a fine car but after 22 months (of a 39 month lease) I could no longer stand being stuffed into the little car. In the last 2 years we've purchased or leased 4 new Hondas from our local dealership (including a HR-V for my Mom - she loves it!). We have an excellent sales lady who has really become a friend to our family and we're convinced that we'd do no better at another dealership (we tried!). Our local dealership just underwent a $6M expansion by buying an empty mall next to their former dealership and totally remodeling it into a huge indoor showroom with future plans for a Honda museum, a gym, and a buffet all within the same complex. Anyway, my wife and I normally avoid the crowds of Black Friday shoppers but I wanted her to see the new dealership so we stopped in "just to look" of course. Fast forward a few hours to us leaving the Civic at the dealership and driving home in a new 2015 CR-V EX. The entire transaction was mostly painless and even after owning the CR-V for only 2 days we're very happy with this new vehicle. It's my wife's car and will be our commuter car. We're already enjoying the room and utility the new vehicle offers. I wasn't sure of the color at first, Mountain Air Metallic, but it's really growing on me. We're looking forward to having this car as our daily driver and letting the Ridgeline rest in the garage which will hopefully maintain it's current average of less than 7K miles per year. I'd be happy to answer any questions I can about either vehicle. Thanks for reading!
