Great reply - thanks !!

To start with - I have ZERO intentions of changing cars UNLESS I am forced into doing so.
My '97 9k Aero is a treasure as I see it & every minute inside it is appreciated.

The 850 - yes - during a car-less time I looked into that model - all that I found were sedans with ATs - 5SP ones were like hen's teeth & IIRC there were some turbo wagons for sale in Canada.

With the possible exception of ergonomic factors, Honda cars are very nice, I agree - and in fact I made the acquaintance of a man who was restoring a couple of Saabs while he & his wife both drove CRVs and he praised those VERY highly - while also sort of drooling over my '94 9K Aero.

Our most recent car deal was when we traded an '03 Outback for a 2011 model of the same car with all of its annoying & excessive electronic garbage (but it is still WAY better than the 2021 loaner I was exposed to !!).
Making that 'trade up' was a result of very carefully putting funds aside as possible for 2+ years and still all that we had was barely enough for that deal AND the added expenses needed for it to be 100% road legal.

We are in our mid sixties and have no desires to get into debt - especially for anything as temporary as cars tend to be.

For me the question I posted is more of a lingering curiosity than any sort of intended reality because as I've also said - given my age & health it is my honest hope that my '97 9K Aero can outlast me in this lifetime !!
