Honda Accord’s Standard Features Set it Apart from Competition

Much has been written about why the 2014 Honda Accord is the best mid-size sedan on the market (by far). There are quite a few reasons it has been declared the best mid-size sedan by consumers and industry professionals alike, but the standout reason seems to be all the features that come ‘standard’ with the base model of the Accord that are ‘extra’ (and you’re charged ‘extra’) on other vehicles.

And those high-quality standard features doesn’t mean the 2014 Honda Accord costs ‘extra;’ in fact, it’s one of the most affordable mid-size sedans on the market starting at just under $22,000 for the Honda Accord LX.

According to this article on Torquenews.com, “Honda has taken a no nonsense approach to model upgrades. You will not find the “build-and-add” pricing platform utilized by former #1 Toyota. We believe that while both manufacturers may produce comparable products as demonstrated by the Camry, Honda’s approach to product specification, market transparency and cross-generational appeal has driven the maker to #1 in North America.”

So what features are we talking about?

“The features that people get most excited about, especially when they find out they don’t have to extra for them, are the back up camera, infotainment system, and safety features,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager at Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee. “They get really excited when they take an Accord for a test drive and find out those and more features are included in the price.”

Stop by Apple Valley, Sims Honda, or Northwest Honda dealership to find out why the standard features of the 2014 Honda Accord set it apart!

Honda Gets Coveted Spots on Consumer Reports List

Hondas captured two spots on Consumer Reports top cars of 2014 list.

The Honda Accord was chosen as the best mid-sized sedan and the Honda Odyssey was chosen as the best minivan.

“The 2014 Honda Accord is truly one of America’s most favorite cars,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “It’s not a favorite because industry leaders said so, it’s a favorite because consumers say so. And the Honda Odyssey is clearly the best minivan for many reasons, so it’s nice to see consumers agreed with what we already knew.”

Honda Accord Beats Out Toyota Camry In Pretty Much Every Category in 2013

Not only has the Honda Accord bested the Toyota Camry is sales for the 12th year in a row, it has done it by focusing on retail sales and not fleet sales. Ninety-eight percent of the Toyota Camry’s volume came from sales to individuals; 84 percent of sales of the Toyota Camry was made to individuals, which relies heavily on fleet sales.

And according to this article, the Honda Accord beats out the Toyota Camry in some key areas…in fact, the Toyota Camry isn’t even in the top three.

“The Accord had the highest residual value among mid-size cars in 2013, according to ALG, the Santa Barbara, California-based company that calculates such figures. The Honda model also led Kelley Blue Book’s resale value awards for mid-size cars. Camry isn’t in the top three of either ranking.”

This dedication to individual buyers is paying off big for Honda and for consumers.

“People who come to Sims Honda to check out the 2014 Honda Accord are blown away at what a high-quality vehicle it is,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “They can tell that Honda put the focus on the driver and passengers of the vehicle, not putting something together that would just meet the basic criteria and make some money.”

Stop by Sims Honda, Apple Valley, or Northwest Honda today to find out why the 2014 Honda Accord is better than the Toyota Camry.

Honda Accord is #1 in Retails Sales; Four Models Take Best-in-Class Awards

TORRANCE, Calif., Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — The Honda Accord was the best-selling car with individual American car buyers in 2013 and was joined by three other Honda models – the Civic, CR-V, and Odyssey – as retail sales leaders in their respective segments in 2013, according to new-vehicle registration data compiled by Polk, which was recently acquired by IHS. The Accord, built in Marysville, Ohio1, also had the No. 1 produced car in America in 2013.

U.S. Car Shoppers Propel Honda Accord to #1 in Retail Sales in 2013; Four Honda Models Take Best-in-Class Leadership based on Polk New-Vehicle Registrations

Cumulatively, the Accord, Civic, CR-V and Odyssey posted retail sales of more than 1.11 million units in 2013, each earning the business of more than 300,000 individual American car buyers. Excluding full-size pickups, only one other model across the entire industry posted retail sales of more than 300,000 units in 2013.

“Our focus on retail sales to individual buyers has a direct correlation to the high resale value of Honda products, which is a key factor in the value proposition for our customers,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of automobile sales for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “We want to thank car buyers for making four Honda vehicles America’s top choices, purchased one car at a time.”

Additional highlights from the Polk /IHS Automotive data included:

  • Honda’s 2013 retail sales rose 8.4 percent from year-ago totals to 1,332,576 Honda cars and light trucks
  • Individual sales to retail car buyers made up 98.1 percent of all American Honda sales in 2013, compared to an average of 81.7 percent for all other non-luxury vehicles
  • Accord retail sales in 2013 rose12.2 percent to 360,089
  • In addition to being retail sales leaders, both the Civic and CR-V ranked as the overall best-selling models in their respective segments for the third consecutive year, and both saw retail sales and registrations jump 8.2 percent in 2013
  • The Odyssey also captured an impressive 32.2 percent of the U.S. retail registrations for minivans in 2013, selling nearly 25,000 more vehicles than the nearest competitor in the segment

Honda has been named the Most Trusted Brand by Kelley Blue Book for two consecutive years (2012 and 2013) and the Best Value Brand by Automotive Lease Guide for six years in a row (2008 through 2013), in part due to the consistently high resale value of its products.

Kelley Blue Book Names 2014 Honda Accord One of Best Family Vehicles

It’s true, when SUVs and smaller SUVs, some predicted the end of the family sedan. That prediction has proven not true and the 2014 Honda Accord even goes so far as to say it’s just as good (and even better in some ways) as those SUVs.

And that’s according to Kelley Blue Book’s website, kbb.com.

This sums up the family-friendliness of the 2014 Honda Accord nicely:

“The Honda Accord has been a top seller for literally decades, but this Accord is the most family friendly yet. The Accord has plenty of rear seat room for child boosters, and the trunk holds a stroller plus lots of groceries. The Accord’s touch-screen interface is easy to use, and LaneWatch, Honda’s cool new side-view camera, virtually makes your passenger-side mirror obsolete.

“But beyond all the various features, the Accord is a midsize family car that you’ll just want to drive. It’s refined, competent on every road surface, the 4-cylinder engine and continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) combine for plentiful power and very good fuel economy, and it even looks good. If you don’t want an SUV, and just enjoy driving, the Accord proves the family sedan still has plenty of life left.”

Yes, some people just want a great family car, not an SUV and the 2014 Honda Accord is a great place to start.

“People want family sedans for different reasons,” said Tony Carter, general manager at Northwest Honda in Bellingham. “Generally speaking, though, people who want a family sedan want superior gas mileage, plenty of space, a good driving experience, and lots of storage space in the trunk. The 2014 Honda Accord easily fits the bill for all of those things.”

The 2014 Honda Accord comes standard with more technology than you will find in any other family vehicle. Features like LaneWatch and the back-up camera will have you feeling like you paid much more than you really did. It has a very refined, smooth drive that, again, will make you feel like you are driving a much more expensive luxury car. And in that way, it’s a very “un-family” car.

Stop by Northwest Honda, Sims Honda, or Apple Valley Honda to find out why the 2014 Honda Accord is one of the best family vehicles available!

Honda Accord and CR-V Tops in Owner Loyalty, According to IHS Automotive

The Honda Accord and CR-V were each awarded a 2013 Polk Automotive Loyalty Award recognizing superior performance in owner retention for the 2013 model year. The Accord, America’s best-selling car in retail sales*, was honored for owner loyalty in the “Non-Luxury Traditional Mid-Size Car” segment. For the second straight year, the CR-V, America’s best-selling CUV, captured the award in the “Non-Luxury Compact CUV” category.

“Model loyalty largely depends on long-term customer satisfaction and keeping each vehicle at the top of its class, two things at which Honda excels,” said David Hendley, assistant vice president of sales at American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “Being recognized by IHS Automotive in two of the largest and most competitive vehicle segments illustrates both the quality of our vehicles and the customer satisfaction efforts of Honda dealers across the country.”

Presented by IHS Automotive, the Polk Automotive Loyalty Awards are based on actual model year purchase/lease activity and recognize manufacturers for superior performance in owner retention – a critical aspect of building and maintaining market share. Owners had such a positive overall experience that they came back to buy another vehicle of the same model, make, or manufacturer. The Polk Automotive Loyalty Awards are the only fact-based awards in the industry based on owner loyalty. This year’s awards are based on analysis of more than 7.4 million actual consumer transactions to determine the winners based on information obtained from state registration and lease transaction information.

3 Car Accidents in 7 Months, Honda Accord Kept My Family Safe

I have written in the past or at least mentioned the fact that my family owns a 2009 Honda Accord (purchased from Northwest Honda dealership in Bellingham). It is our go-to car (in fact it was our only car for a number of years). We have put more than 130,000 miles on it in the 4 years we’ve owned it. It literally brought both of our kids home from the hospital.

And it has protected us all. In fact, we have gotten into three car accidents in the last seven months in our 2009 Honda Accord.

The first one was my fault. It was a fender bender while I was taking my daughter to her first swim lesson. I got distracted looking at the progress of the lovely house I passed occasionally and didn’t stop in time. There was actually much more damage than it appeared, but our Accord kept us perfectly safe.

The second accident occurred a couple months later while I was taking my daughter to her open house for preschool. We were stopped in a left turn lane and someone coming around the corner lost control and smashed into the driver side tire/bumper. Right behind where my daughter was sitting. This time I had some neck/back pain, but, overall, our Accord protected us as good as we could’ve hoped.

Our third accident came just a couple days ago. We were involved in a 4 car pile-up; we were the 3rd car in line when someone simply didn’t stop and smashed into the car behind us which pushed us into the car in front of us. Once again, though, it appears our Honda Accord accepted the brunt and we all walked away shaken but uninjured.

While the number of collisions might be unique, our stories are not. Collisions happen as we go about our daily life. These past few months have made me or grateful than ever that we picked the Honda Accord as our family vehicle because it has kept my family safe…despite the crazy number of collisions in the last seven months.

Honda Has 3 of Top Ten Best-Selling Vehicles in 2013

Three Hondas were named in the top ten of best-selling vehicles of 2013, more than any other automaker!

  • The Honda CR-V was eighth

“People love Hondas,” said Tod McLaughlin of Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee. “I think it’s a testament to the fact that Honda has established a reputation of creating cars that people want that are also dependable and have great value.”

Stop by Apple Valley Honda, Sims Honda, or Northwest Honda dealerships to find out why these three cars are some of the most popular vehicles in the U.S.

Honda Leads the Pack with Six Top Safety Pick+ Ratings

If numbers don’t lie, then we can honestly say that Honda vehicles are the safest vehicles on the road. Honda leads all other automakers with six Top Safety Pick+ ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The Honda Odyssey is the only minivan to be given this safety rating.

Two other models earned the second highest rating of Top Safety Pick.

There is a lot to be proud of here, so below is the complete press release from Honda:

  • Two models also named TOP SAFETY PICK, next highest rating
  • More challenging  IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ testing standards require vehicles to offer collision warning technology

A total of six Honda and Acura models, the most of any auto maker, received the highest possible safety rating of TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) under its more challenging technology requirements in guidelines implemented for the 2014 model year.

“As the industry leader in TOP SAFETY PICK+ ratings for 2013 and now 2014, it’s clear that our commitment to offer advanced safety technologies on mainstream products continues to pay dividends to Honda and Acura customers,” said Art St. Cyr, vice president of product planning and logistics at American Honda. “Honda and Acura vehicles should be at the top of the shopping list for those who value safety ratings and the engineering prowess required to achieve them.”

Four 2014 Honda models were named a TOP SAFETY PICK+ including the Accord Sedan and Coupe; Civic Sedan; and Odyssey, which is the only minivan yet to earn this designation. The Civic Coupe was named a TOP SAFETY PICK. Additionally, two 2014 Acura models, the new MDX and the RLX each achieved TOP SAFETY PICK+ status with the TL earning a TOP SAFETY PICK rating.

The IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK rating recognizes vehicles that do the best job of protecting vehicle occupants involved in front, side and rear crashes, plus rollover and small overlap front crashes based on performance in the Institute’s tests. Under this year’s more challenging requirements, the IIHS is using the TOP SAFETY PICK+ designation to recognize vehicles that not only performed well in its crash tests but also are equipped with technologies that help prevent or mitigate front-to-rear collisions. Front collision prevention, which includes both warning systems and automatic braking, is intended to help inattentive drivers avoid rear-ending a stopped or slower-moving vehicle in front of them.

American Honda’s 2014 TOP SAFETY PICK+ vehicles offer a broad range of active and passive safety features along with available leading-edge safety and driver assistive technologies like the Forward Collision Warning (FCW) system. FCW uses a camera or radar mounted in the upper portion of the windshield to detect a vehicle ahead. Audible and visuals warnings alert the driver when the system determines that a collision with a detected vehicle or object is likely. Intended as a warning system only, FCW will not automatically activate the brakes, and the driver remains responsible for safely operating the vehicle and avoiding collisions.

Other available safety and driver-assistive technologies available on Honda and Acura vehicles include: Collision Mitigation Braking System; anti-lock brakes; Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®); Lane Departure Warning (LDW), LaneWatch™ blind spot display; side curtain airbags; dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags; and a front-side airbags.

Honda Safety Leadership
Honda has a long history of leadership in the development and application of advanced technologies and designs to enhance the safety of all road users, including automobile occupants, motorcycle riders, and pedestrians. The company operates two of the world’s most sophisticated crash test facilities and is responsible for numerous pioneering efforts in the areas of crashworthiness, airbag technology, collision compatibility and pedestrian safety. This commitment to safety is rooted in Honda’s goal to be a company that society wants to exist, and it complements the company’s leadership in reducing vehicle emissions, improving fuel efficiency and advancing alternatives to gasoline.
