2010 Honda Accord Crosstour: I Miss the Raciness
April 22, 2010
When I was driving the Crosstour last night, every time I eased up a little on the throttle, the Eco light came on. And it made me think about how Honda has changed. They used to be racy, sporty, feisty, scrappy. They used to be involved in motorsports. Now, they are more concerned with fuel economy. I know it's important to take care of the environment. But sometimes, you have to take care of your soul.
My personal car is a ten-year-old Integra. I still enjoy driving it. In my opinion, it has the greatest suspension ever made. In southern California, you still see old Civics, Preludes, Integras all over the place. People love them. They can't give them up. You can't buy anything like them from Honda anymore. OK, there is the Civic Si but even that is not the same.
What is this Crosstour thing? It's like it was put together by committee. Sport it up, Honda. Make it desirable.
Happy Earth Day.
