I remember everyone saying that Honda will take our cars back and crush them after the initial 3 years leases. Thankfully, that is not the case. Look what I saw today at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. They have two of them and they are being used in the new "Safe Ride" program. I just called the hotline and the girl said that she thinks they were donated. If that's correct, I say well done Honda! These cars still have a lot of life in them and it looks like they will be around for a while. :)

Has anyone else seen our cars repurposed like this?
