I Just Got A New Car

Mon Apr 16, 2007 9:02 am

My family just bought a brand new Honda Fit. We got a red one. When we got it it had 8 kms on it, all eight driven in our test drive. We have never owned a new car before. It was perfect timing because as my dad was driving his old car in the driveway for the last time the car quit. May it rest in peace. Our family is the 2nd family to own a Fit in the town I live in, and that I think is kinda cool. I am happy because in less than 3 months I get my license, and that will be the car I drive.

Hmmmmm. I am semi-unenthusiastic about your new car graham. On one hand it's a Honda Fit. It's kinda dumb looking. On the other hand, it's not your dad's old car. And since I have to car pool in it every week, i accept the change.  Wink

Congratulations! Nothing like new car smell.

I picked up a 2007 Honda Civic about six weeks ago. It's the first car I've purchased in the past ten years - not much of a car nut. But boy is it fun to have a new car.

Happy driving to you!

Interestingly enough I was looking at the Mercedes Smart Car today at a dealership - but just for the fun of it. They are so interesting looking. I was not there looking to buy that car but it was there and it was teeny. It's time for CurtisMan to get a new car so the shopping is beginning.

Hey Flyboyseven - congratulations on your new car! How exciting with the new car smell the low km's and the feeling that nobody else has driven it. It sounds like you are very excited. Enjoy the car and study for your license!!!

Congratulations, on the Honda Fit. Honda builds a great car and I am sure you will enjoy it for many years.

I bought a new 2006 Honda Civic EX Coupe last August and absolutely love it. Nice and peppy, leather seats, XM, Navigation, Voice Recognition, 33 MPG. It is an all around great car for me. The Civic is my second Honda. My first Honda was a 1998 Accord that I drove 8 years and 130,000 miles.

Maybe I could drive it if the front seat was taken out and I am not tall.

I picked up a 07 Chrysler Sebring last week. Nice smaller car. i bought the 4 cylinder model, which is perfect for the mostly in town driving I do. The lease was up on my Dodge Magnum so I thought I would try a smaller car. The Magnum was nice, but the visibility sucked. It was hard to park in tight spots.

Going from a Magnum to a Sebring?

The Magnum was the bottom of the line model with plastic hub caps. The car singlehandly raised my insurance rates, with help from me. First the car is popular among thieves in the D. It got hit in a parking lot the first day I had it. I wrecked it at 1500 miles and the bumpers were always getting nicked up because the visibility was so crummy. The car was bad luck from day one. Plus it got bad mileage around town, which is wear I drive mostly these day. My Grand Marquis was better than the Magnum. It didn't even come close to the utility of my Benz wagon. The cargo area was so short you could hardly stick anything in it. It even sucked to "sleep" in at parties because there are these two holes from wear you fold the seat down. The Benz has a fold flat seat and way more cargo room.

No man needs two wagons. I had a girl break up with me a couple years ago who said " I told myself I would never date a man with a station wagon and you have two of them ".

IMHO, the interior of the Fit is actually more comfortable than a Civic. Infact the interior dimesions are just shy of an Accord.

That is a good thing. I'll have to run by the Honda dealer and check them out. I like the Civic, they sure have come a long why in thirty years. I had a 85 Accord and that is about the size of today's Civic.

I knew a guy with a 72 Honda 600 (a car, not a motorcycle). He is a Aviation instructor at the University of Central Missouri. I worked on it once and then drove it to his office door. Right into the elevator and onto the second floor. It was a neat little car. I don't know if he still has it. I have not seen him or the car since 2002.

Simply great! I love it!
The only version that comes to Brazil is the SEL 2.3 with 163hp.
The car is all complete, with 6 airbags, ABS, radio (6 cd´s with mp3), air conditioning and auto pilot controls in the wheel, VERY spacious and comfortable, the trunk is huge, it´s pretty fast (although it´s speed is limited to 180km/h), it´s modern and beautiful!
It was the car of my dreams and Ford is doing great with this car here in Brazil. It´s imported from Mexico (from the Hermosillo plant) and has the same price as other inferior (in my opinion) "Made in Brazil" cars like the Honda Civic EXS and the Chevrolet Vectra Elite 2.4.
I would recommend it to anyone!

We just picked up a 2007 Toyota Rav4 on Friday night. My wife has been missing her Tribute that we got rid of a couple of years ago, so we got rid of our Tacoma Doublecab and picked up the Rav4. After about 160 miles on it, we love the car, but there's a few features that are standing out:

1) Gas mileage - the 4cyl is definately going to beat the 16-17mpg the Tacoma was getting.
2) Integrated Bluetooth - Nice to know that we can use our cell phones without having to hold them like we were before
3) DualZone AC - Any married man should understand why I love this without any further explanation  Smile

Not a bad car. It's called Honda Jazz here. I got my new car less than two weeks ago. It's a Renault Clio III and up till now it has been a great car. It is the first car I own and is very easy to park around the city and very spacious for a small car. It also has a very cool panoramic sunroof.

NWA742, they don't seem to get your jokes. No matter, the Fit is a superb choice and Honda's timing on releasing it in the U.S. was spot-on; it's a smash hit! With Honda reliability, great gas mileage and efficient space packaging, it's a slam-dunk!

Yes, it is! Unbelievably for me, my almost 19 year old nephew bought a $55,000+ Audi S4 with winnings from internet poker. An insane car for a 19 year old which costs 2 1/2 times what I drive, a lowly Mazda Tribute. I could see myself in an A3 or A4 2.0 with Quattro but an S4 is ludicrous around here. No roads where you can legally open it up, it's overkill!

A good crossover SUV for growing families due to its rail-mounted rear seat that can be moved 8 inches back and forth to accomodate growing kids or more cargo. The name Equinox fits because it's between the compact and midsize SUV classes, a significantly more accomodating vehicle than my compact Tribute in the backseat.
