A New SUV: The Right Choice for Busy People

At Loving Honda, we love being involved in helping our clients pick the right vehicle. An SUV offers busy people the ability to work and play hard while looking great. SUVs offer busy people space, cargo room, comfort, and safety.

This helps protects their neck and spinal cord. After eight or nine months, your infant grows out of this rear-only seat, so you could opt for convertible seat that changes from rear-facing to forward-facing.
