The Honda Ridgeline broke new ground in the American pickup market with its unique design featuring a spacious five-passenger cabin, smooth ride and handling, and half-ton truck capability. The first truck of its kind to be built on a closed-box unibody platform, the Ridgeline introduced innovative new features to the pickup segment, such as its large In-Bed Trunk® and dual-action tailgate.Like the innovative first-generation model that earned 2006 North American Truck of the Year and Motor Trend Truck of the Year honors after its fall 2005 debut, the next-gen Ridgeline is being designed and developed by Honda R&D Americas, Inc. at its Los Angeles and Ohio R&D centers.

“The next generation Ridgeline will build on Honda’s role in creating new value with a new take on advancing form and function in the truck segment,” said Michael Accavitti, senior vice president of automobile operations for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “With a clear path forward, Ridgeline will play an even more important role in our future product portfolio and strengthen an already class-leading lineup of light trucks.”

Sales of Ridgeline have enjoyed strong momentum in 2013, strengthened recently by the introduction of a new top-of-the-line Special Edition model for 2014, with sales totaling 16,160 units through the first 11 months of the year, an increase of 29 percent.

In the first four months of 2014, Honda continued its retail sales momentum despite an environment punctuated by a handful of companies applying heavy incentives and a significant reliance on fleet sales. Honda enjoyed steady growth in April with CR-V setting a new sales record, and Accord and Civic enjoying gains.

  • Accord posted April sales of 34,124, an increase of 1.7 percent
  • Civic was up 4.4 percent to 27,611 units vs. April 2013

“After a few truly chilling winter months, it’s great to see the warmer spring weather begin to liberate our customers and spark record sales of CR-V and solid sales results across the lineup,” said Jeff Conrad, Honda division senior vice president and general manager. “More than any other automaker our success is based on one customer at a time going down to their Honda dealer to purchase a new vehicle, and in April, we see the power of our retail sales strategy at work.”

Honda Offers Free, Limited Paint Repair

There have been a few vehicles that have had some issues with paint flaking or coming off, so Honda is offering free paint repair for those vehicles with identified issues.

According to this article at ConsumerReports.org, the recall only applies to specific vehicles and parts on those vehicles. “For Civics, for instance, bulletin number 12-049 covers just the hood and top of the front fenders on 2006 to 2010 Civics that came in one of nine specified colors (four shades of blue, two shades of black, and three in gray or silver), and 2011 Civics of any color. Another TSB, 13-060, covers the roof and trunk of the same cars in any of the nine colors. Finally, TSB 13-004 applies to just the trunk lid of 2009 to 2011 Civics sold in 25 northern states, excluding the Pacific Northwest.

“Remedial work on the CR-V (2007-2011), Odyssey (2011-2012), and Pilot (2009-2011) is limited to “refinishing and polishing” the tailgate, and applies only to vehicles sold in 25 northern states. The relevant TSBs are 13-005, 13-002, and 13-003, respectively.”

We think this is a great step by Honda to treat it’s customers right! If you have any questions or have not been notified and you think your vehicle may be affected, please do not hesitate to contact Apple Valley Honda, Northwest Honda, or Sims Honda dealership.

Honda Project Drive-In Helps Fund New Digital Projector for Brownsville Drive-In

Here’s a follow-up to a blog we did about Honda’s Project Drive-In several months back.

Brownsville Drive-In has become the tenth drive-in theater to benefit from Honda’s Project Drive-In. With the end of 35mm film distribution, and the costly switch to digital projection, Honda created Project Drive-In as a national effort to save as many of America’s remaining drive-ins as possible. Through Project Drive-In, awareness was raised across the country and it offered communities simple ways to get involved and help preserve this historic part of American cinema and car culture.

The remaining funds from the Save the Drive-In Fund at Indiegogo (http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/project-drive-in-save-the-drive-in-fund) plus an additional $5,000 donation from vAuto, an AutoTrader Group company, will be used by Brownsville Drive-In Theater to go toward the purchase of a digital projector. The theater is working to raise additional funds to cover the cost of the digital projector through http://www.gofundme.com/4qh494.

The ten drive-in theaters that received support from Honda’s Project Drive-In were determined by more than two million votes at www.projectdrivein.com. Visitors to the site were encouraged to share Project Drive-In information with family and friends via social media, email or texts, then also pledged to see one movie at their local drive-in and contribute to the national save-the-drive-in fund to help keep more drive-ins in business.

“Honda is proud to have been a part of this effort to help preserve a key part of American cinema and car culture,” said Alicia Jones, manager of social media at American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “With drive-in season about to begin, the timing couldn’t be better for the Grindstone community to celebrate a small business where families can share the cinema experience together under the stars.”

Honda Parts Purchasing Surpasses $300 Billion in North America

Honda News YOU Can Use!

Honda honored more than 100 automotive parts suppliers in North America for outstanding performance in 2013 at its 30th Supplier Conference last week, and announced that Honda has purchased more than $300 billion in parts and materials from its more than 650 suppliers in North America during the 35 years since Honda began building products in the region.

The purchasing milestone came on the heels of record Honda auto production and parts purchasing last year in a region where Honda manufacturing continues on a growth trajectory. In 2013, Honda manufactured a record 1.78 million automobiles in North America as parts purchasing in the region exceeded $25.5 billion for the year, the most ever.

“Over the next three years, Honda will continue to transform our business, advancing technology in products and manufacturing in North America to maximize joy for the customer,” said Chitoshi Yokota, senior executive vice president of Honda North America, Inc. “Together, Honda and our suppliers can support Honda’s goal to become a truly global company by becoming a truly self-reliant regional company here in North America.”

Today, more than 650 domestic OEM suppliers ship parts to 14 major manufacturing facilities in North America, producing a wide range of Honda and Acura automobiles, automobile engines and transmissions, and Honda all-terrain vehicles. Utilizing a separate supply chain, Honda also manufactures power equipment products such as lawn mowers, mini-tillers and general purpose engines in North Carolina. Honda has invested $2.7 billion in recent years to expand auto production capacity and implement new technologies.

In addition to supporting increased production, suppliers are being called on to support Honda’s new responsibilities in the region to increase exports and lead the launch of global products, such as the Civic, that Honda manufactures in markets around the world.

“With significant growth in our production over the next three years, driven by heavy new model activity in North America, we will continue to collaborate with suppliers to deliver leading edge technologies and the highest quality products,” said Tom Lake, vice president of North American Purchasing and Cost Strategy.

American Honda provides service and accessory parts for the nearly 20 million Honda and Acura automobiles in operation in the United States today.

Honda Service Parts suppliers provide customers with top-quality service parts in a timely manner and at competitive prices for the maintenance and repair of Honda and Acura customers’ vehicles. They were rated on their performance in quality, cost and delivery. Distinct from the OEM supplier awards, an overall score is based on the combined performance in all three categories.

50 Years of Honda in the U.S.

Honda has a reputation of dependability, value, and safety. It takes a long time to develop such a reputation and some people may not realize how long Honda has been satisfying American drivers.

The AP created a timeline with some incredible photos that documents Honda’s history in the United States. Check out the timeline HERE and let us know what you think!

Honda System Informs Drivers of Traffic Lights Ahead

Honda is testing a system that would warn drivers of traffic lights ahead of them. Not just let them know the lights are there, but also whether the light is green or whether they have no chance of making it and need to slow down.

How cool is that?

Think about all those times you drive around a corner or up a hill at a good rate of speed only to have slam on the brakes or cut it too close going through the light. This technology would get rid of any guess work on the part of the driver and improve safety for everyone on the road.

According to this article, “The version of its driver-assist system Honda is testing uses onboard GPS systems and infrared sensors that recognize landmark IR beacons along the road to give the car’s navigation system an accurate estimate of where it is and the status of a traffic signal it may be approaching.”

This technology would probably be available in all car with Car2Car Communication technology, which is being tested in order to help drivers avoid other cars by giving cars the technology to know about surrounding cars and their activities. Informing drivers of traffic lights ahead is an easy extension of that.

What do you think? Would you use this technology?
