For my first post, a little about my vehicle history. Since I was a kid my father was a big fan of Japanese cars and an even bigger Honda fan. So I started driving cars like a 1989 Honda Accord, a 200o Honda Odyssey, a 2003 Honda Civic and a 2006 Honda CRV. Not the most exciting cars but nevertheless, the pinnacle of long-term reliability and low cost of ownership.
Not straying too far away from what I knew, my first car was a 2001 Acura EL, a car made only for Canadians, basically a fancy Honda Civic, when I sold it a few years later the odometer read 385,000 kilometers.
My second car was my pride and joy, a 2007 Subaru Legacy 2.5i. Some might say I’m a Subaru fanatic. The all-wheel drive system on these cars is wonderful, nothing felt better than leaving a car for dead on a snowy road when that light turned green.
My third and current car is a 2013 Ford Escape 2.0 Ecoboost, a crossover that is surprisingly fast, but a little more on that car in my next post. And now, in a couple of weeks, I expect to be taking delivery of my fourth car, a 2016 Ford Escape 1.6 Ecoboost.
