Honda Cars of Katy made buying my first car, a Honda Cr-V an Easy Process

Just about a year ago, I knew the time was coming to search for a new vehicle. It would be my first time as the owner of a car, despite having paid for every car I owned since I was 16. Being a very simple person, my car had to have two things: an iPod outlet and a sunroof. Why would anybody want a sunroof in hot Houston, you ask? Seven years prior, I was forced to pick out the car without the sunroof since my parent’s knew I wouldn’t be able to afford the higher model with my lifeguard and waitress, high school student salary.

 

In April of last year, I traveled to La Grange with a friend to volunteer at the MS150 in her Honda cr-v. I immediately fell in love. It was so spacious, the stereo system was perfect for jammin’ out to Ke$ha on that trip, and even the center console flipped down to store her purse. After that day, I couldn’t stop thinking of how much her Honda Cr-v resembled a luxury vehicle. Nobody in my family has ever owned a Honda, though my dad had a short stint working at a Honda dealership years ago. I was determined that someday soon I, too, would be the proud owner of a Cr-v.Honda Cars of Katy Honda CR-V

 

After months of searching and receiving annoying phone calls and emails from what seemed to be every dealership in Houston, I came across Honda Cars of Katy on an internet search. I was little weary since the drive was far away from my midtown apartment, but I decided to give it a whirl. After the first visit with Isaiah, I knew this was my dealership. After a few weeks of wheeling and dealing, I finally purchased my first ever Honda on June 19, 2010. Honda Cars of Katy had so many colors in stock of the 2010 Honda cr-v, it was like being in a shoe store and trying to pick the color of heels that fits your style most. I was very happy with my glacier blue pick. I was fortunate to have a stress-free day- complete with a free sandwhich and my salesman asking if I thought the sales manager was good looking. The best part? I did not even need my Dad’s help! Isaiah and the whole sales team made the process so easy, even an Aggie could buy a car from Honda Cars of Katy.

 

Eight months later, I love everything about my Honda. I love how spacious my CR-V is, something that has come in handy during road trips. Though I take the METRO light rail to work every day, my Honda is the perfect weekend getaway car. It has enough room to tote both my friends and luggage to party in Austin. Though I love my friends and family, my dream road trip would be with my favorite actor Adam Sandler to visit his hometown of Brooklyn. I mean, he can always fly to Houston from LA and we’ll travel all the way to the east coast and up to Brooklyn, sight seeing along the way. What could make a better vacation? I’ll even let his wife and kids tag along since the cr-v is so roomy!

 

As a Big Sister in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program, having a safe vehicle is extremely important. I was not confident in driving my little sister to the zoo or the movies for our outings in my old car. Now, her mother and I both rest assured the Honda cr-v is top of the class in safety ratings. I now know that when I grow up, get married, and have children, I will definitely have Honda to keep my family safe. Maybe by that time, I’ll move up to the Honda Pilot to have more room for the little rascals.

 

 

Going Honda was a great decision. Driving away in a Honda from Honda Cars of Katy was an even better decision.
