Clutches Fail...just like meaningless comments

Honda joins small-crossover fray with HR-V
Image
"The HR-V, based on the Fit subcompact, arrives early next year and will compete with small crossovers such as the Buick Encore, Fiat 500X and Mini Countryman.

Honda will offer the Mexican-built HR-V with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder rated at 138 hp. Two transmissions will be available, a continuously variable automatic on two- and all-wheel-drive models and a six-speed manual available only on 2wd HR-Vs."

I would have taken the manual rower (aka, transmission) on the all-wheel drive model.

You know, some of us still like to shift.

Another winner from Honda. And Hercules-40, everyone in the office was wondering which one you'd prefer. Now that I know, I'll alert the media!

Yes, clutches do wear out at times. So do automatic transmissions.
