Double Pilots

If you are looking for an inexpensive and dependable used family SUV, look no further. The first generation Honda Pilot is a great choice. It combines amazing practicality, comfort, decent fuel economy, affordability, and roominess all in a decent size. There is room for eight passengers, and this Pilot will prove to be reliable. These 2004 Honda Pilots that you see here have high mileage (see picture), but are still running strong. Throw in Honda’s excellent resale values and you have a sound buy. For the 2004 Sage Bush EXL model that you see here, it is worth around 10,000 dollars according to Kelley Blue Book in fair condition. And that is with numerous scratches and dents, not to mention it has over 150,000 miles. So if you are looking for a used family SUV, don’t miss out on the Pilot! A good alternative is the first generation Toyota Highlander.

Christmas is around the corner, and ironically these two Pilots are both red and green (it may look blue due to the lighting but it is actually a shade of green), which are Christmas colors. Merry Christmas!

2009 Mazda3 S Grand Touring Review

tackling the woods

“If a car’s not worth driving, it’s not worth building” This motto completely describes Mazda as a company. Mazda prides itself on driving enjoyment, as reflected by the availability of the manual transmission on all its cars  including the 5 minivan, CX9 excepted and its focus on sheer driving enjoyment. Mazda strayed from its ordinary mainstream image as soon as it adopted a numerical naming scheme for its cars. The Mazda3 replaced the mundane looking but somewhat fun to drive Protege, while the 6 replaced the forgettable 626. Ford and Mazda shared an operating agreement that Ford would use Mazda’s engines and chassis, while Mazda would get Ford’s facilities. The deal fell through a year or two ago. There were reports that Mazda would go under. Mazda is a small company that builds cars in Japan, which is less than ideal due to the yen and the cost of transporting the cars across the sea. Mazda came through. How? Two words: KODOS, and SKYACTIV. These two terms represent Mazda’s comeback. Mazda adopted a new design language and new fuel efficient engines and transmissions, which has propelled Mazda to the spotlight in terms of design, engineering, and driving performance. The CX5, 6, and the newly launched 3 are examples of this company’s rejuvenation. Continue reading

2007 Acura RL Review

looking good

No, your eyes do not deceive you. What you see here is an Acura RL. With 379 of the RLs sold in 2012, it is rare. I told the owner of this car this fact, and she said, “Hmm, then I guess my car is a collectible!”.  The RL’s genealogy can be traced back to the Legend. in 1986, Honda created a luxury division with the Mid size Legend and the compact sporty Integra. Replacing the successful and popular Legend that jump started the Acura brand, the 1996 RL attempted to provide a comfortable and reliable alternative to the BMW 5 series and Mercedes E-Class. It barely made a dent on the sales chart, as the Acura with its front wheel drive layout and 200 horsepower V6 could not match the superior dynamics and power of its European rivals, and also it lacked prestige. The Acura RL was redesigned in 2005, and for the first time, all-wheel drive was standard. In 2014, the RL is succeeded by the RLX. Continue reading
