Hi folks! Pretty stoked on the new Integra, and I've put down a deposit -- this will be my first new car after 20+ years behind the wheel of used vehicles of varying quality. My only Honda ownership experience has been with a manual GD3 Fit that was admittedly a beater but an absolute HOOT to drive. Put some sticky tires on it and enjoyed scooting around town for a few glorious months.
Current ride is a GX470, and while I still love it, I don't do enough "truck stuff" to justify it. I figure if I'm going to be staying on the pavement, having an engaging daily driver is going to be the way to go. Additionally, the interior amenities in the new Integra seem like they are going to be really nice, which is kind of important after a couple of years being spoiled by the fairly posh interior in the Lexus. (Even though it's a 15-year-old truck, it's still the comfiest and most nicely-equipped cabin I've personally had. Hard to give up those heated seats, I can't lie.) I've also been driving a lot more as of late, so as I'm sure you can imagine, I'm pretty keen on driving something that is considerably less thirsty at the pump.
Internet cross-shopping a few other cars, but thus far, the Integra seems like it ticks all the boxes.
Excited to learn more and hopefully get some tips on navigating my first dealership purchase. This place seems like a pretty good resource. Cheers!
P.S. Forgot to mention, I do own one other Honda -- a 1982 Honda FT500 Ascot!
