I like the Honda brand very much. I had always bought American cars and felt frustrated at the amount of repairs needed and also the low resale values. When I had enough money saved up I researched the best selling resales and discovered Hondas were in the top 5 slots.
My first foreign auto was and still is a 2003 Honda CR-V; a mini SUV, if you will.
The first test drive was the clincher for me and the sales weekend made it sweeter.
I highly recommend them.
