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?

Kelley Blue Book Names Honda Most Trusted Brand

Honda was named “Most Trusted Brand” by Kelley Blue Book for the third year in a row. Honda was also named Best Non-Luxury Brand for the second year in a row, as well.

“A brand is really built over the long haul through consumers’ experiences with its products, and Honda is committed to delivering class-leading vehicles that provide lasting enjoyment and value to our customers,” Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager for the Honda brand, said in a statement.

These awards are based on the perceptions of visitors to Kelley Blue Book’s website, kbb.com. And perception is everything, right?

“Kelley Blue Book is one of the most trusted online sources for automobile information,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “It’s really great that kbb.com and its users have recognized Honda, for the third time, as a brand that everyone can trust for its safety record, performance, affordability, overall value and more.”

Honda Will Replace Engine in 2006-2009 Civics with Coolant Leak

If you own a 2006-2009 with a coolant leak, Honda could replace your entire block (engine) for free, according to this article from Consumer Reports. “The free service applies to all Civics except the Hybrid and the Civic Si, and it effectively extends the original warranty to eight years, regardless of mileage.”

Leaking coolant can cause the engine to overheat and/or crack, so Honda has decided that vehicles with this issues should just get an entirely new engine.

“Honda wants to do right by the consumers who bought the Honda Civic because of its reputation for dependability and reliability,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager of Sims Honda in Burlington. “Certainly normal engines shouldn’t be leaking coolant if they are less than 8 years old, so there’s an issue here that Honda wants to comprehensively take care of. Replacing the entire engine is no band aid fix, that’s for sure.”

If you have a 2006 to early 2009 Honda Civic, please contact Sims Honda, Northwest Honda, or Apple Valley Honda to talk to someone about getting your vehicle’s engine replaced.

Ohio Plant Rolls Out 10 Millionth Honda Accord

Generally speaking, Honda sells vehicles where it makes them. Which means many of the Honda vehicles sold in the U.S. are made right here in the U.S.

A big part of that “made-in-America” effort is Honda’s manufacturing plant in Marysville, Ohio, which recently completed its 10 millionth Honda Accord. That same vehicle was also the 20 millionth vehicle overall that Honda has made in the U.S.

According to this article, “The Marysville facility alone employs about 1,500 in Clark and Champaign counties and about 1,200 across the rest of the Miami Valley. The plant can produce as many as 1,800 vehicles a day, and as many as 440,000 a year.”

While the productivity of this U.S. plant is impressive and its impact to Honda is clear, what is more important than that is the number of Americans it affects. With hundreds of suppliers feeding into this assembly plant, the economic impact of the plant is incredible.

Honda is dedicated to building vehicles for Americans on U.S. soil and providing high-quality jobs. What more can you ask for from a global company like Honda?

Not a whole lot.

Honda R&D Installs Advanced Fast-Fill Hydrogen Refueling Station

Preparing for the 2015 introduction of the next Honda fuel cell-electric vehicle (FCEV), Honda R&D Americas has installed a state-of-the-art hydrogen refueling station on its Torrance, California campus. This advanced station will serve as a platform for demonstrating and validating the enhanced hydrogen fueling protocol developed by Honda, named the MC Fill. With the aim of standardizing this new protocol, Honda will make the new research station available to other automakers to further validate the MC Fill protocol’s performance and functionality.

The MC Fill fast-fill protocol is designed for fuel systems that store hydrogen at a pressure of 700 bar (70MPa or 10,000 psi). This new fueling protocol reduces 700-bar fueling times by up to 45 percent versus comparable fueling protocols, and can complete most fills in less than three minutes under normal temperature conditions. The MC Fill more precisely monitors the dispenser outlet temperature and uses this information to calculate the shortest fueling time possible. This dynamic, fast-fill control not only provides FCEV customers with shorter fueling times, but it also allows the dispenser to continuously adjust to current temperature and other conditions which normally affect the refueling time.

Derived from two key values in a heat transfer equation—”M” for mass and “C” for specific heat—the MC Fill name refers to the heat capacity of the hydrogen storage system and represents the capability of the system to absorb the heat that is generated during fueling. The MC Fill protocol utilizes this value, as well as the dispenser outlet gas temperature and pressure, in its fill control logic.

“In order to meet customer expectations, hydrogen fuel cell-powered vehicles need driving ranges and fueling times comparable to conventional gasoline vehicles,” said Steve Mathison, Senior Engineer at Honda R&D Americas, Inc. “This new fueling protocol will allow FCEV customers everywhere to realize short fueling times over a wide range of temperatures.”

Honda has led the industry for nearly two decades in the development and deployment of fuel cell technology through extensive real world testing, including the first government fleet deployment and retail customer lease programs in the United States. Honda has also made significant technological advancements in fuel cell operation in both hot and sub-freezing temperatures and safety regulations, since the introduction of its first generation fuel cell vehicle, the FCX, in 2002. Honda launched its current fuel cell-electric vehicle, the FCX Clarity, in July 2008 as a real technological breakthrough in the areas of design, sedan packaging, assembly line manufacturing, and fuel cell stack size and efficiency, winning “World Green Car of the Year.”

In November 2013, the new Honda FCEV Concept debuted at the Los Angeles International Auto Show, pointing the way to an all-new Honda fuel cell car launching in the U.S. and Japan in 2015 and later in Europe. Honda’s next-generation fuel cell-electric vehicle will feature a fuel cell powertrain packaged completely in the engine room of the vehicle, allowing for efficiencies in cabin space as well as flexibility in the potential application of FC technology to multiple vehicle types in the future. The next-generation Honda FCEV is anticipated to have a driving range of more than 300 miles.

Honda Environmental Leadership
Honda is committed to further advancements in environmental technologies and the effort to improve fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions from its products, including the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid and Plug-In, the Fit EV, Civic Natural Gas and the Honda FCX Clarity fuel cell electric vehicle. Honda also has led the Union of Concerned Scientists’ (UCS) rankings of overall vehicle environmental performance since 2000, and a Honda vehicle has been included on the list of America’s greenest vehicles from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) for the past 16 years.

2013 Honda CR-V is Easy to Park, Sleek

We love hearing about the different reasons people adore the Honda CR-V, but this was a new one.

In this article at TruckTrend.com, focuses mostly on how wonderfully easy the Honda CR-V is park. Seriously! It seems a bit funny at first, but then I thought about my experiences or concerns about driver a vehicle bigger than a mid-sized sedan and parking is right at the top. Who wants to be embarrassed as they try to squeeze into a tiny, downtown parking spot? Or start panicking as they realize that all the room they THOUGHT they had only to start pulling in and realize the vehicle was making it much tighter than it should be?!

Certainly, we’ve all experienced that anxiety, which is why the focus on ease of parking in this article is relevant. Especially to those moms (and dads) who need a vehicle big enough to transport kids and lots of stuff, but not one so big that it makes it impossible to park unless you park yourself away from everyone else.

“The Honda CR-V tends to be the pick families; moms and dads who want a great car for moving the family around,” said Tony Carter, general manager at Northwest Honda in Bellingham. “Families need a good sized car, but not one that feels like a tank driving down Fairhaven or makes it impossible to shop at Bellis Fair around the holidays. This article actually does a really great job of describing an important aspect of why people love driving (and parking) the Honda CR-V.”

How great is the Honda CR-V’s “parkability?”

“The CR-V seems as if was born to park, squeezing into laughably tight, strip-mall spots; shoring up perfectly square to curbs; and swiftly maneuvering through one of Los Angeles’ massive 10-story, subterranean parking garages. You’d almost swear this was Honda’s top priority when conceptualizing the fourth generation of its small ute.”

Stop by Northwest Honda, Sims Honda, or Apple Valley Honda to take the Honda CR-V for a test drive…and park!

2015 Honda Civic Type R is “Brilliant”

It’s big Honda news to have the 2015 Honda Civic Type R unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show…we’re just sad that it won’t be sold in the United States.

But, that’s no reason not celebrate the “brilliance” of the 2015 Honda Civic Type R, especially because some of its components may turn up in the new Honda CR-Z.

While the look of 2015 Honda Civic Type R is certainly striking, the writers at Motor Authority were especially struck by its performance: “We recently drove a prototype, complete with Honda’s new direct-injected and turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, and found it to be absolutely brilliant. The engine also comes with Honda’s VTEC variable valve timing and should deliver at least 280 horsepower in production form.”

Check out the article linked above for more pictures and video about the new 2015 Honda Civic Type R.
