Speaking of debadging...do you know if it is easy removing what looks like it is painted on, but I think it is a decal, dealer advertising that some dealers stick on all their cars? Can you harm the clear coat removing it and will it leave a "shadow"?in chicago i'm not getting many looks. i debadged the rear as well, so if you don't know much about cars, i don't think you'd think anything different.
I love your "stalk" remark.... lol. I have been stalking people about RAV4 recently.....asking them how they like it.Bice, I agree. The initial flurry of sales has leveled off here. Once advertising starts, we may see things change. Like me, I believe some are waiting for more inventory to get the HRV they want. I'm anxious to see (and stalk) the first one that passes me on the highway!
I bought mine Thursday and picked it up Saturday. I wanted white and they traded for a white in Yuma, AZ. I am loving it! I was driving a 2009 Sonata and wanted to move away from sedans. This car is fun to drive, lots of bells and whistles in the right places. I am 5'1" and drive 20,000 miles per year. This vehicle handles very well, great visibility with the assistance of rear and right side camera. People I know are curious, but I don't think it is turning any heads. It pretty much blends into the SUV market. I think you have to do your research to see what is different about it. I have held back from the SUV market until this vehicle showed up...glad I waited. Price point, mileage, Honda brand and size make it a winner for me.Just wondering...for those lucky new HR-V trailblazers--what kind of reaction are you getting from the general public? Are people staring to figure out what you're driving? Questions when you pull up on the parking lot, etc.?
Love hearing the fun you are having with your new car. Enjoy!My nextdoor neighbors were on their porch when I got home. They are on their 3rd CRV and 5th Honda. They got super excited when they saw I had an HRV and have been following it since they want something smaller. I gladly let them hop in and test things out and they're going to go get one now! Different color of course!
