I was surprised to receive an invitation by the Local Honda Dealer, (DCH Honda of Temecula), to a "New Honda Owners Dinner, which was held on April 29th, and checking with my social calendar, was pleased to find I had no other obligations for that evening, and so of course accepted the invite. (old single guys will never turn down a free dinner---and getting out of the chore of cooking at home, and having to do the clean up afterwards).
The dinner was held on the floor of the showroom, and was attended by some 30 of us new Honda owners. The food was served buffet style, and was quite good. The Manager of the local Honda Dealer, welcomed us there, and proceeded to give us some interesting insights to the various features of our new Honda's, example, like how on hot days, the car having been sitting in the sun, one can open all the windows using the electronic key buttons , without having to get into the car, letting it cool down a bit first.----he explained too, about the low tire pressure alert system, and also warned us not to lose our keys as the replacement costs would run about $140 bucks---its not just a key, its programmed with our individual alarm codes----and things of that nature. It was good information to know about.
In addition to the dinner itself, there were door prizes and I made out like a bandit---(who was that masked man Ma?---) I won several nice prizes, a great black Honda T-shirt, a chrome license plate holder that just says HONDA on it , and a Honda baseball hat, which I gave to my Nephew Pete, who wears hats , whereas I don't.-------anyway that was a fun evening.
