Forbes.com Declares 2013 Honda Accord Car of the Week

Forbes.com Declares 2013 Honda Accord Car of the Week

We love a good, honest review of the 2013 Honda Accord. It has received bounteous positive reviews from critics and consumers alike, so it was refreshing to hear a more laid back (from possibly someone who is has much a cynic as he is a critic), but still positive.

Honestly, my favorite part of this review is how described drivers of Los Angeles freaking out when it rains. Made me laugh because that exactly what happens in Washington, too, and it rains way more here. Does that make it worse? I’ve never seen so much brake tapping and gingerly changing lanes in all my life as I silently scream “It rains 300 days out of the year here! It’s not even raining, it’s mizzling!” (Bonus points if you know what that is)

I digress…

As is pointed out by this review, the lane-change warning system of the 2013 Honda Accord came in especially handy as drivers “wiggled and waggled in nearby lanes.” No doubt that is a feature that would come in handy with our own fair-weather drivers.

While he calls the interior of the 2013 Honda Accord “bare-bones utilitarian bland,” I can think of another word for it: simple. Honda kept the interior simple because that is what most people like in their crowded lives. Need proof? The cult of iApple. Even this guy came around to say the navigation grew on him and was much more efficient than the one in the Aston Martin he drove around in. I’m not exactly sure what to think of that other than that I would expect the Aston Martin to come with a personal map reader for a navigation system, so we’ll take as a very good thing.

“ The interior is roomy and my large suitcase easily slid into the trunk with room to spare, though the car is actually over 3 inches shorter than the previous model. Honda has revisited proportions and worked the angles. It’s a small sedan that makes room for big people, particularly in those big bucket backseats.”

He points out the 2013 Honda Accord will never win in a Fast in the Furious race. So what? Who buys a Honda Accord to race it in the desert? The people who buy the 2013 Honda Accord want a car that gets 30 mpg and need an “Old Faithful” that is more than competent.

“The ninth generation has raised the bar over Accords past by ironing out discrepancies to become a more comprehensive sedan. Despite Honda’s struggles in recent years, the Accord is still a very decent car for the driver that is seeking reliability and a reasonably pleasant driving experience. In the post-tsunami reality, it’s reclaimed its rep as the little Honda that could.”

Honda Creates Futuristic Safety Features

Honda is showing the world that it is taking automobile safety to a whole new level with its Automatic Emergency Braking System, Green Wave, and i-ACC Technologies. All of these technologies, when fully implemented, will save the lives of drivers, passengers and pedestrians. In fact, it is estimated that the Automatic Emergency Braking Technology will prevent about 90 percent of all pedestrian fatalities occurring under 37 miles per hour.

 

That is a lot of families who could spared a lot of heartache.

 

Here’s the rundown of these incredible technologies:

 

Honda’s Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB): this technology causes your car to sound an alarm when you are approaching something (or someone) that you could possibly collide with on the front end. Besides sounding the alarm, your Honda will apply the brakes for you if a front-end collision is imminent.

 

“AEB uses input from a windshield-mounted camera and a millimeter-wave radar sensor in the car’s grille. That allows the car to determine the position, speed, and even direction of a pedestrian. The system can also prevent crashes with cars or other solid objects that are at least one meter (three feet) tall.

Automobilemag.com got to test drive the new safety equipment and said the AEB proved very effective at stopping when a pedestrian cut-out was stationary in front of the car and thrown out in front of the car (to simulate someone falling/jumping in front of the vehicle).

 

Green Wave technology: I was confused by this name, thinking it was some sort of environmental technology (and it is in a round-about way), but what it really means is for drivers to ride a wave of green lights. Really.

 

Traffic lights in Japan emit infared transmissions, so Honda’s with the Green Wave technology are equipped with receivers that interpret that information that tell the driver of the car how fast to drive/when to start braking in and effort to promote safety (ie not slamming on your brakes) and better fuel economy.

 

“The first part of the Green Wave recommends a driving speed at which the car will reach the next traffic light when it’s green. In our test Japanese-market Honda Odyssey, this meant we traveled at 26 mph while a control car in the adjacent lane drove at about 35 mph. While the other car had to brake, stop at a simulated red light, and then accelerate again, we breezed through the fake intersection about five seconds after the light turned green. This is designed to promote smoother, more fuel-efficient urban driving, and to reduce the risk of rear-end collisions from frequent stop-and-go traffic. “

 

The article notes that some drivers my be confused why you are driving 25 mph so you can hit the next light when it’s green when the speed limit is 35 mph, but who cares what people think when you roll through that light and they’re still stuck at the light? J If you do get stuck at a light, the Green Wave technology will tell drivers when the light is estimated to turn green so they can get going and avoid getting rear-ended by impatient or inattentive driver behind them.

 

i-ACC Cruise Control with Cut-in Prediction: This technology fixes a big problem (or at least annoyance) for me as a driver. We have all experienced it: you’re driving on the freeway and just set your cruise control only to some jerk…er…neighborly fellow-driver…cut in front of you and go sloooow. Not only do you have to pay attention to make sure you don’t collide with that car, but then you have to reset your cruise control.

 

Well, i-ACC Cruise Control with Cut-in Prediction technology fixes all of this. “Honda’s system, by contrast, guesses when a car in an adjacent lane may move over and adjusts its speed pro-actively.

 

i-ACC uses a camera and radar to track up to six vehicles, and uses information like closing speeds between vehicles to determine which cars are likely to change lanes. “Honda says Cut-In Prediction can react up to five seconds earlier than normal adaptive cruise control, keeping a safer distance between vehicles and also saving fuel by driving more smoothly. The front-facing camera can also be tasked with lane-departure warning and traffic-sign recognition duties. Honda showed a static demo of i-ACC in an Accord sedan, but didn’t allow us to test the system.”

Legislation Requiring Rear-Facing Cameras Costs Billions, is it Worth it?

 

Legislation Requiring Rear-Facing Cameras Costs Billions, is it Worth it?

Legislation requiring all cars and trucks sold in the U.S. to have rear-facing ‘backup’ cameras has been pushed back a second time. The legislation was originally signed in 2008 and now will not go into affect until the end of 2012.

And that could be a good thing.

While the rule is designed to prevent individuals from being run over by vehicles backing up, predominantly very young children and the elderly, it is also one of the most expensive pending legislations.

At an estimated cost of $2.7 billion for fleet of 16.6 million vehicles and approximately 292 deaths occurring each year from being backed over by a car or truck, that means each life saved is approximately worth $18.5 million.

Is that worth it?

Of course every life saved is worth it, but consider that the article also states that because of this legislation, the price of cars will go up $58 to $203. Can the auto industry, and the economy in general, afford that seeing as it is still on shaky ground?

Perhaps those billions of dollars could be spent on driver education or a safety campaign? The government even admits they need more information before implementing this rule (the reason the pushed it back):

“While the department has made progress toward a final rule to improve rearward visibility, it has decided that further study and data analysis — including of a wider range of vehicles and drivers — is important to ensure the most protective and efficient rule possible,” the agency said in its statement.

There are gut-wrenching and heartbreaking facts and stories of people, especially children, being harmed (50) and killed each week (two) by a vehicle that was backing up. If my child was saved by a rear-facing camera, I would absolutely say this billions dollar cost was worth it. But if I were going to be in the market for a car in the next year, I may not be so sure.

What do you think?

The Benefits to Buying a Honda with the Navigation System Included

The Benefits to Buying a Honda with the Navigation System Included

 

If you decide to buy a new vehicle from Apple Valley Honda, Northwest Honda, or Sims Honda then it is worth considering opting to have a model with GPS built-in to the dashboard.  It’s possible to have fully-integrated GPS with the following ranges; Accord, Civic, Crosstour, CR-Z, CRV, Element, Fit, Insight, Odsyssey, Pilot, and Ridgeline.  But why pay a small bit extra for GPS?  There are a number of reasons, both economical benefits and also green-living factors.  Here’s why you should consider this added extra.


No Need to Buy a Standalone GPS

 

If you have the Honda Navigation System then there is no need to spend money on a separate device such as a Garmin or TomTom.  In addition to that, the GPS will be fully integrated into your dashboard with no messy wires visible, plus some models even come with a rear-view camera installed so you can get in and out of those tricky small spaces a lot easier.


Using a GPS Device Saves You Money

 

Recent research conducted in Germany monitored the driving habits over a year of one thousand people.  Half of them used a GPS, and the remaining half relied on instinct and road knowledge.  The ones using a GPS satellite navigation product on average made the following savings over a 12 month period:

 

  • Overall drove shorter distances
  • They spent less time driving and behind the wheel
  • Their fuel efficiency was increased by a factor 12%
  • Gas consumption fell from a high of 8.3 to 7.3 liters every 100km
  • This better fuel economy equated to a .91 ton reduction their C02 emissions annually per driver
  • They manage to reduce their annual driving distances 2,500km for each driver

 

The reason these savings are made in both the wallet and environment is because a GPS like the Honda Navigation System will always try to route you the quickest or shortest route possible.  The new Honda Navigation units also come with Real-Time Traffic alerts.  This means you will know about a traffic jam before you reach it, and the GPS will re-route you to avoid it.  Traffic jams are the number one place for high fuel consumption and gas costs due to the “stop-start” nature of the driving style adopted.

 

For more information on Honda Navigation System updates and the savings you can make with the Honda dashboard devices please visit: www.hondanavigationdvd.net.  Also please make sure that you speak to you local dealer about the price options available should you wish to opt for the system in your new Honda purchase.
