Hey, I heard you the first time!


Elements are cool. Everyone I know that has one loves 'em.

Honda should keep making them. And bring back the Prelude.

I understand, sold my wife’s 2004 Honda Odyssey a couple of years ago with over 200,000 miles on the clock. That was a kid hauler for a lot of years.

Never gave us any trouble.

It's like selling of a family member. I was the original owner of a 2004 Toyota 4Runner. Drove it to Seattle, lived there 3 years, then drove it back to the OC. Hauled every piece if gear I ever purchased home in it. Played all my gigs using it. Changed up the audio system. But it was starting to show it's age and I traded it in for a new 2014 Highlander. Highlander is very nice, but I still miss that old 4Runner.

I have loved my '03 Honda CRV-EX since the day I drove it new off the lot in August of 2003. It too has been totally dependable for us and we've driven it all over the country...and it has hauled more than its share of guitar amps. It just turned 160K and I still can't imagine selling it. One of the smart things I did (a rare thing for me) was to negotiate old changes for life on this car when I bought it, so it goes in for an old change every 6K miles. I've also had the transmission and cooling system maintained carefully at regular intervals.

tahitijack, I just bought a '13 Highlander to replace my Pilot. I just needed a good #2 car and, like I said, designated dog hauler (we have an Aussie who likes to ride with us).

I started out looking for a 2012-14 Pilot, but they all had half a million miles on them. So I expanded my search to Acura MDXs and Highlanders.

Back in Omaha, Honda and Toyota sold about equally. Up here in the mountains I see 10 Toyotas for every Honda. Especially Tacomas and 4Runners, they are everywhere. I didn't really notice Highlanders until I bought one, and now I see lots of them too.

We still have a Honda though, a 2014 CRV. Great car, Mrs. R loves it.

My 2006 pilot just crossed the 225,000 mile mark yesterday and still going strong. Vigilant PM has been the key for me. Love that car and I am hoping to get two more years and hit 300,000 before I put it out to pasture. I've already funded a replacement but why buy if I don't have to!

clf, does that Pilot of yours have any rust? I'm thinking probably not.

All of the early ones in the Midwest are showing it due to salt on the roads in the winter.

Didn't name that old 4Runner. But, I gave voice command navigator in the Highlander Lucy after the Peanuts cartoon character. She can get stubborn when I decide to take a different route to my destination. Yeah I know Lucy, but I'm the one behind the wheel, got that?

I've never regretted getting rid of a car. That will probably change when it's time to move on from my trusty (not rusty) 2009 RAV4.

It hasn't given me any trouble and is still in great shape. Mrs.B would like me to get something a bit larger (maybe a Highlander) but I'm resisting so far.

My 2002 Lexus Land Cruiser (LX470) is now 16 years old and I've had it since December of 2009 when I bought it from a Lexus dealer in Utah.

I cannot imagine the day when I'll give up this beast. Best vehicle I ever owned. I remember Pinetree mocking me for spending something like $22.5-23k for the vehicle with about 66k miles on it. It was a good deal then and the vehicle has proven itself many times over. Now have about 113k miles on it so 57k trouble free miles over the last eight+ years.

I won't quit on a vehicle that is still safe and reliable (rust is not a thing around this part of the country).

The last 4 cars I have purchased have been Hondas. 2 Accords and 2 CR-Vs. Very reliable vehicles.

CG, I looked at the Toyota version of your Lexus just a little bit.

Man, those things hold their value! And I like them, but they are bigger than what I need.

I have a friend who has one, same vintage as yours. He bought it new, and has no intention of getting rid of it anytime soon. He's one of the reasons I was more than willing to switch to Toyota.

Rag, the Land Cruiser is bigger than I *need* too but not bigger than I *want*. At 6' and 180#, I don't want a small car as my daily driver; my Miata reminded me of that. The LC is a bit of a gas hog, especially with my heavy BFG 265/16/75 KO2 tires, but the 14.5-15 mpg I get is a price I have no problem paying as I only drive 6000-7000 miles annually. That's under 500 gallons or regular per year. I remember calculating (when gas was over $3 a gallon) that it would cost me an extra $50 a month over something that got 25 mpg. So worth it.

It just occurred to me that, in selling my Pilot, I sold my last cassette player too.

Yes, it had a factory cassette player in it.

And I have 50 or 60 homemade cassettes, now with nothing to play them in. These are really excellent cassettes, recorded by myself on Maxell UDXLIIs, usually from a brand-new album that I just brought home. And they still sound great, way better than any store-bought cassette.

Wonder if I can find a used boom box on CL, maybe?
