Local dealer says regional manager told them we would see cars at the dealer in April!
Something definite finally.:)

I don't believe that dealers are allowed to announce dates until Honda has made it public. This may be wishful thinking or educated guess base on the knowledge that HR-V's are being shipped someplace based on recently posted pictures of them being loaded onto railcars. Aprilish may not be far off the mark, probably not May.

This last message from her sounds really cool!


"Last year we had Honda rep coming to introduce us to a new Fit and we had a chance to test drive the vehicle few months before it came to the dealerships. In case that happens with HR-V, I'll let you know"

I see a big difference between "wishful thinking or educated guess" and a dealer rep relaying "as per our regional Honda representative, we will be getting first HR-V's in April".


No one has announced "dates", but we are past guesses now.

I am very cynical about what dealers tell me. But in the past when I talked to a few dealers none of them would quote a regional Honda representative.


Aren't you really not believing what Honda says then, not dealers?


Regardless, if you are saying "Aprilish", how far off are you from believing what I am hearing anyway?

I'm just saying take what they are telling you with a grain of salt, and don't be surprised if it slips a bit more. I really think we are getting close. And just because they are saying they are quoting a regional rep dosen't mean they still aren't making it up. That is what I was refering to when I made my statement about believeing everything a dealer tells you.

The NY Auto Show will start 6 weeks from tomorrow (April 3rd through the 12th). With several of the forum users stating that they have heard from dealers that they will have HR-Vs in April (I had a dealer tell me last night that they THINK they will have them in April), could we expect Honda to make an annoucement that sales could start during the NY Auto Show? Just some speculation on my part.

Well,except for it's release in LA, the Auto Shows have had little to do with info coming out on the HR-V. So I don't see them waiting until New York to give out more info.


Pricing is expected in March, for example, before the April show in New York.


As Enjoy the View said, I believe the cars will start trickling out to dealers soon. They are popping off the assembling line now. I can't see them letting the storage parking lots fill up at the plant waiting for a grand announcement in New York weeks later .


One local dealer said they often get a car before it actually begins shipping for the staff to preview. I hope she is sincere when she told me that if that happens, she will call me to come see it.

Shu,

Torquenews.com has already stated that they will be participating at an event in Miami the end of Februaury and will be able to drive the HR-V (HR-V evebt we are assuming)


My bad. I know they said the event was next week. I missed the Miami part.

Somehow I don't think "Honda Pro Jason" will have an unbiased review of the HR-V. I am looking forward to getting some first impression reviews though. I get the feeling we'll be getting a big information dump once the embargo ends after this press event. I wouldn't be surprised if we get a new USA webpage where you can build and price the car, prices, and the reviews all on the same day.
