It’s dying. As in “overheating it’s gonna throw a rod” dying. So we’re gonna buy one of these: a 2007 Honda Fit.
Is it not nifty? It certainly seems to be, since the things are selling like hotcakes in the Honda dealerships here in the DFW Metroplex that the dealers can’t keep them stocked fast enough. Actually, the Hubby and I will be heading over to a dealer tomorrow to pay down *earnest* money for a Honda Fit that isn’t finished built yet. *That’s* how dang popular these things are.
This’ll be the Hubby’s third Honda. Not surprising — Hondas last forever. His first Honda, a 1981 Accord, was still running in 1999 but wasn’t going to pass emissions anymore. His current Honda, a 1988 Acura Integra, is overheating badly and parts are getting too expensive to get now that it’s 2006. I figure, with a 2007 Honda Fit, it’ll start to die, oh, around the year 2025.
I figure the hydrogen-fuel cell cars should start to be perfected, reasonably priced, and supported with fuel-cell stations around every corner by that time. 🙂
