Well, this is my 2nd day of recovery, pain killers and too much time on my hands thinking,” that is were I get into trouble”.
SO here goes with the dumb question..

What does your 2019 Honda Passport mean to you?

I will go first because I can’t wait.
I know a car is a car. Man made, a great modern marvel but, still its only a shinny object with 4 wheels.
For 46 years "my work career" I thought when I retire I am going to buy a ????
I didn't know what but I wanted something just for ME. Patty and I always do our car shopping together, do the pro's and con's, price points, separate our needs and wants.
This time Patty wasn't going to give any input, other then its going to be BLACK even though she doesn't like black, she knows that is my favorite color for a vehicle.
She told me this is my car "SUV", make it exactly what I wanted.
So with that said, I bought the Passport because, to me it looked so cool. It fit my imagination, now it has become real at the age of 66. Not retiring yet but it is getting very close.

I know BLAH BLAH BLAH...
SORRY

Enjoy the new ride..you really gotta retire soon and enjoy, travel etc! I am 67, had so many colleagues die early, told myself I needed to retire and enjoy before 60 after over 40 years and I did...thinking about the Passport to replace a Nissan Xtrail I recently gave to my son, and gotta say I also do a lot of biking..Iceland, Greece, Italy and all over North America with a couple trips planned this year in the US. Never too old, just stay healthy and enjoy!,
Gotta say you will likely buy several more..my father bought an Acura Integra when he was 70, drove for 10 years and then after 300,000 km, gave to my daughter and then purchased 2 more vehicles until his license was taken away at age 91 on account of eyesight...ha, I still take him for annual bike rides and he is 97..stay healthy!!

As you stated Gary, it is just a car. But this "just a car" manages to bring us so much joy and contentment by just always being there, ready to respond to our commands. Its the technological replacement of the horse. Its transportation, desire, and pride of ownership all in one. Its a representation of many things we cast upon it. Its why we so miss it when it's taken away from us for periodic maintenance and even grieve when it's been totaled in an accident (hopefully, with its owner spared serious injury), as it will never be the same no matter how well its repaired, there will always be a little something that is not the same, a little off, when its returned to us. It also represents our wealth. These are expensive modes of transportation. To have access to a vehicle like a Passport is something to be proud of, it's our symbol of accomplishments exhibited in a vehicle.

Well, that is enough for now. Thanks for allowing me to expound on matters of the universe . . . .

If you've got to (too*) much time on your hands. Get a 50's or 60's classic car and spend time keeping it in classic condition.

My Passport is my retirement vehicle as well. I waited two years to buy it; once I started seeing the rumors, I decided to wait until I heard something I didn't like about it but it never happened!

I also started to wait before purchasing it to get a better deal; I was wrong. I got almost $4k off of MSRP, as good a deal as I could expect at any time. I'm 71 and don't know how many more I'll buy but all my cars I've owned 10+ years!
