That makes sense. I love the HRV but it definitely needs a power upgrade. At this rate I'll have about 130,000 miles on my R18 by the time I'm due to transfer in July 2020.i'm trying to conserve mileage now...driving the non-gas sipping 4.3L sonoma once or twice a week now.
i'm going to be over 100K before it's paid for! and i'm trying to hold out until Honda puts the 1.5t in the HR-V for a replacement to the civic. if i am forced to replace prior to upgrading the HR-V, probably be a 2018 hatch.
