Default CRV rentals

well hi!

I'm looking into renting a CRV for the weekend as a test drive, but I'm not
having any luck finding one in the US (much less Norman, OK). Any ideas?


Thanks!

Only small time rental companies carry Honda/Acura rentals. I can rent an
Odyssey here in Toronto, but not from the big ones!

Go to the dealership in town, and ask them if they will
allow you to have one for the weekend for a test drive.
It's done around here.

Eh, I did this with a Civic Si once. They wouldn't let me drive it more
than 50 miles away from the dealership - and I worked for them..

That's interesting. When I have my car in for service, I take a vehicle for
a test drive (they don't supply loaners any more), and I go as far as I need
to travel. I have topped up the fuel level to what it was before my 'test
drive' to be fair <g>.

I'll bet this dealer would give you one of the manager's demos in that
situation, although I haven't asked for a service loaner. They don't
have any cars specifically earmarked as loaners. I just took the car
because at the time, I hadn't yet bought a car from them and I was
interested in that model. I was working for them as a salesman. I
hated that job, and I'll never do it again, but it taught me everything
I'll ever need to know about buying cars.

A talk with my insurance salesman convinced me to buy an Element rather
than a Civic Si.

I used to take the sales manager's demo, but management decided that the
insurance coverage for non employees was too high. So a test drive fills the
bill now.

That makes sense. Although I drive a large box for work (tractor trailer
<g>), and I like my Accord's style.

That's an interesting and slightly worrying revelation. I suppose they
expect YOUR insurance to pick up the slack?

I like the Accord's style too, but it won't swallow three bikes, and I
can't swallow two car payments...

That's the way it works.
