Honda Real Wheels carchat Washington Post

Good Morning Warren and friends

Many of you have been wondering about the Honda HR-V. The embargo is lifted and here is my review. Yes, I like the vehicle a lot and I think it will do quite well in the market, especially when the starting MSRP is under $20,000.

I got to see the new 2016 Honda Pilot this week. I can’t tell you the price or my driving impressions but I can tell you that you should wait to buy the new one.

Here is a video with some of the safety features on it

And this week I drove the 2015 MINI Cooper S Hardtop 4 door that topped out at $35,900. That seems like a lot but the Volkswagen Golf R I had the previous week came in at $39,000.

I know the price to fix anything on the MINI is high, but I loved this car. It is so responsive, so much fun to drive. She may be high maintenance, but she’s worth it.
