Just wanted to say hello to the group. I live just outside of Sacramento, CA and I'm looking forward to checking out the HR-V when it arrives and any news/updates from this forum.

Good to have you here on the forum. Sacramento is beautiful, I've been there for a jazz festival twice.

What are you driving right now?

Cheers!

Right now I'm in a 2002 Toyota Solara coupe (3.0L V6 with Manual Trans.) that has 148,000 miles on it. It's been an amazing car for me with only scheduled maintenance ever needing to be done on it and never any sort of problems or breakdowns. It could easily last another 150,000 miles no problem. Unfortunately, it's not very dog friendly, thus my interest in the HR-V. However, having driven this car for so long it does mean I've come to expect a certain level of reliability and performance in the next car I buy.

Nice, never really liked those but it must be nice to have a v6 coupe to play around with!

Have you ever owned a Honda or have you mainly been with Toyota's?

I've driven an Element, Fit, and a Civic I think. I was speaking more about being a passenger, but that wasn't very clear on my part.

Oh ok, how did you like being in those vehicles. Any experience with anything from the competition? More and more people seem to be going the Korean car maker route these days.

I didn't like the Element because it seemed cheaply made and the seats were not very comfortable for me. The Fit was fine, but a bit low on power. Can't really recall the Civic, so it must have been fine.

I've driven the Mazda CX-5 and Forester. I really like the Forester, but I'm worried about their recent class action lawsuit filed against them for the 2.5 engines burning too much oil. The CX-5 was "ok", but I really didn't like the lack of visibility in the back, not MT available for the larger engine, and everyone says it's the "sportiest" but it didn't seem any more sporty than the MT Forester I drove.
