Honda CR-Z - Not Impressed With IT

 Finally, the moment that we… I mean I’ve been waiting for! Honda announced the arrival of CVT version of CR-Z to fulfill our demand! Previously only comes in manual transmission, the CR-Z now provide customers the option of either a stick swinging 6-speed manual version or a slightly more relaxed 7-speed CVT version.  Previously I didn’t try out the CR-Z when I was accompanying my friend for a test drive because I’m not familiar with manual transmission. I ended up being only the rear passenger.The availability of automatic transmission CR-Z is a very good news for drivers like me who… doesn’t have good left leg and hand coordination. But i was Sadly not impressed with it.

It just felt cheap not a lot of space in the back seat area, in fact more a parcel shelve.

the fittings felt mixed and odd some looked quality others look cheap.

I like the look of the engine, well laid out but never got to try it.

however i'll see what others out their have to say after they get to try it.

4th July - Free Starbucks Coffee in USA

According to a Starbucks blog post published today, Starbucks locations across the country will serve everyone a FREE tall brewed coffee on the 4th of July. Before you make a special trip, you may want to contact your local Starbucks to be sure that they are participating.

So this I think was a good gesture from them, but feel they should have done it worldwide in order to promote the good old USA.

Dont get me wrong I just love to see it when companies give out freebies.

And I have to say that since they went over to the ready ground coffee, and no longer grid own beans on site, I do not like the coffee.

What i do not understand is why they don't grind on site, the grinding process imparts the aroma of coffee around the Premises and for me that is the main point of fresh brew coffee.

Example: at home when i make instant coffee I put 1 and 1/2 spoons of coffee top up with water, aroma? very little. - I grind me expresso beans, aroma - Hell yeah!! lots, then while its brewing more aroma, so before i even get my lips onto the cup i am happy, just with the aroma. then the taste with a little slurp come through.(try it folks - slurp the coffee into your mouth for a super taste of the coffee) however slurp coffee made with instant and you get Zero…

GOING Instant i feel was big mistake. But i am only one, but one who no longer goes to Starbucks, I look out for the barista bars for my coffee fix or do it at home.

But I do like the fact they honor the 4th of July with free Coffee…..
