Rear Visibility Cameras Can Save Young Lives

This touching article about a mom who accidentally ran over her young son as she backed out of her driveway illustrates exactly how rear visibility cameras, or backup cameras, could help save lives of many children around the country.

It is a sad story that has been repeated more than 1,000 times from 1990 to 2010. Oftentimes, children are injured or killed by those who love them most who simply didn’t see them behind the car.

As the article points out, “driver expectation” is a big part of the reason incidents like these occur: drivers simply don’t expect children to be around there. In the case mentioned above, no doubt this mom expected her son to be inside with her husband, but her young son somehow got outside and onto the driveway. Drivers are most careful in parks and school areas, but, in other places, where you don’t expect children to be wandering around, drivers tend to let their guard down.

So this mom, and many other moms, have made it their mission to urge the U.S. government to require rearview cameras that will allow drivers to see in their rear blind spot. Many vehicles already have rear cameras as an option, including the popular family minivan Honda Odyssey and the 2013 Honda Accord, which includes the rearview camera standard on every model.

In fact, “According to Edmunds.com, a privately held automotive information firm, 70 percent of 2012 model year vehicles have backup cameras available on one package or more.”

As is pointed out by many supporters, they believe the cost auto manufacturers claim to add cameras to every new vehicle will go down as more and more manufacturers apply it, and, so far, that seems to be true. Honda is a great example of that: instead of making the rearview camera an option for higher-end models, the 2013 Honda Accord is the first vehicle to include the backup camera standard on all trims. No doubt, this won’t be the last vehicle to do that, either.

Is having a backup camera a big selling-point for you as a car shopper? Do you think backup cameras should be required to be installed in all new cars?

In fact, his Honda Fit rolled over seven times. And he walked away from it. And he caught the whole thing on video.

Maybe this video will change a few minds and car buyers will realize all Hondas, including the Honda Fit, are some of the safest in the industry.

Check out the video of a driver walking away from his Honda Fit after it rolled seven times.

 

2013 Honda Accord Named to Safest Cars List

The 2013 Honda Accord is among the safest cars on the road according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Only the 2013 Ford Fusion and 2013 Nissan Altima were rated as highly.

According to this article, “The 2013 Honda Accord and 2013 Nissan Altima also earned the top five-star overall rating in federal crash tests, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.”

“Honda prides itself on designing and manufacturing some of the safest cars out there,” said Tod McLaughlin of Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee. “The Accord has always rated as one of the safest cars, so it’s really no surprise that the 2013 is one of the top three safest according to the IIHS.”

But lest you think all of these cars are of equal safety, don’t be me mistaken. Only one of these cars passed the new test IIHS put cars under, the small offset test, which simulates the car hitting a post on the out third of the hood (where most reinforcement is). You guessed it, only the 2013 Honda Accord passed that test.

Stop by Apple Valley Honda, Sims Honda or Northwest Honda dealership to see if the safety of the 2013 Honda Accord is right for you!

2013 Toyota Camry Fails New Crash Test

Many consumers and critics see the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry as head-to-head rivals…and for good reason. However, there is one recent safety test that proved the 2013 Honda Accord safer than the Toyota Camry as the Camry failed to receive a “Top Safety Pick-Plus” from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety while the Accord earned such honors (the Camry earned a “Top Safety Pick” minus the “Plus”).

The sticking point for the Toyota Camry was that it earned a “Poor” rating for the “small overlap” or “narrow offset” safety test, which simulates a car striking a pole or post on the outer quarter of the hood (most reinforcement is in the middle of the hood).

The 2013 Honda Accord passed the small overlap test with flying colors; the only vehicle sold in the United States to do so.

“We want vehicles to be as safe as possible for everyone,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager of Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee. “Certainly, there’s no joy for us that the Camry failed the narrow offset safety test, but it is definitely something people will want to consider as they weigh whether to buy a Toyota Camry or a Honda Accord.”

As you make your pros and cons lists of whether to buy a Toyota Camry or Honda Accord, no doubt that safety will be near the top of those lists. So be sure to take note that only one of these vehicles earned the “Top Safety Pick-Plus” from the IIHS.

2013 Honda Accord is Only Moderately Priced Midsized Vehicle to Earn “Good” Rating on New IIHS Crash Test

According to a new “narrow offset” front-end crash test instituted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the 2013 Honda Accord is the only moderately priced midsized vehicle sold in the United States to earn a “good” rating.

The Suzuki Kizashi also received a “good” rating, but Suzuki recently decided the Kisashi would no longer be sold in the U.S.

The new IIHS crash test involves a front-end crash where the car strikes a thing object (like a pole or tree) in the outside 20% of the hood; this is important because as it stands, now, most of the reinforcement is in the middle 60% of the car.

“About 10,000 deaths a year are in frontal crashes and about one-fourth of those are ‘narrow offset,’ ” says IIHS spokesman Russ Rader.  ”We think it is important to look at how people are actually dying in real-world crashes.”

The fact that the 2013 Honda Accord did so well on the IIHS test surprises few people.

“The 2013 Honda Accord is an incredible vehicle,” said Tod McLaughlin of Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee. “It has been getting rave reviews for style, safety, technology, gas mileage, and now this. Honda did its research and new this test was coming and showed an anxious concern for the safety of Honda drivers and passengers.”

It is interesting to point out that the moderately priced vehicles performed better than the luxury vehicles subjected to the narrow offset test. Of the 18 moderately priced vehicles tested, 13 of them received an “acceptable” or “good” rating. Of the 11 luxury midsize sedans tested, only three passed the test. The Acura TL (Honda’s luxury brand) was one of the luxury vehicles that earned a “good.”

At the end of the article it addresses how Toyota’s vehicles did so poorly. Toyota responded that the IIHS tests well above the federal requirements but it will now respond to the challenge. I think that contrasts very interestingly with Honda who had been following the IIHS test development very closely “for some time” and took the initiative to improve its vehicles before the test. What do you think? Does this say anything about the values of the different automotive companies?

Honda Voluntarily Recalls Older Odysseys, Pilots

Honda announced it is voluntarily recalling Honda Odyssey minivans and Honda Pilot SUVs from the 2003 and 2004 model years for problems with the ignition. Also, Acura MDX SUVs from the 2003 through 2006 models years may be affected. The problem with the ignition could cause the vehicle to roll away even after it is put in park and the key removed.

Approximately 800,000 vehicles may be affected.

“If you have questions or concerns about this issue, please call us or stop by,” said Tod McLaughlin of Apple Valley Honda. “Whether you bought your Odyssey, Pilot or Acura MDX here or another Honda dealership, we will take care of you.
