Rejoining the Honda family
I'm looking forward to becoming a Honda owner once again. I have a Honda Civic 4-door Exclusive with the 1.5 VTEC Turbo and CVT, finished in Burgundy-Black metallic with Cream leather interior, on order for September delivery. The Civic comes after a spell with two Volvos (V60 diesel and V40 petrol), but I also ran an Accord Type-S diesel saloon from 2012-14. I sold that when an upcoming house move prompted the need for an estate. I also have a 2005 Chrysler Crossfire coupé for fun.
I live in France, about 30 miles west of Paris, and work from home, so the Honda will be used pretty much exclusively for long weekend trips across France and return visits to the UK. Many of those trips are to attend classic car events: I work as a writer and translator (from French and German into English) of motoring books and also do commentary at some car events. Nothing so far on Honda, but who knows?
Honda France offer great discounts to members of the motoring press and the dealer from whom I have bought both my Hondas (Soupizet in Le Mans) threw in three years' free servicing.
I am looking forward to getting to know more about the car here.
