More Recalls Means Safer Cars

Whenever you hear about recalls, it may make you think that cars are not as safe as they used to be, especially since there are more recalls than there used to be (note: there are more recalls, but fewer vehicles are affected by these recalls than before).

According to the Detroit News, however, the number of recalls actually suggests that cars are safer. This article outlines three reasons why modern-day recalls are actually a good thing and a sign that cars are safer.

1. Quality Control is getting better, making problems simpler to spot. “Thanks to more sensitive testing software, plus increased communication between the various divisions at car companies, it’s far easier to discover trouble spots in-house.” What this tells me is that, yes, there are problems. But modern technology makes problems easier to catch, resulting in more recalls. Communication

2. Companies are trying to proactive rather than reactive. This makes complete sense to most consumers. In auto-recalls of yesteryear, automakers were almost in a sense of denial and wouldn’t issue recalls until they absolutely had to. This, of course, resulted in terrible PR for affected companies. However, in this information age, it is better for companies to “nip it in the bud” before they are forced to clean up a mess. This is why we are seeing many more ‘voluntary’ recalls issued by automakers.

3. Companies have no choice but to be transparent. This is related to the reason above, but it is important on its own. “ It’s become increasingly difficult for companies of any kind to keep their business practices opaque; when they try to do so (and fail), the results can be disastrous. The trend is toward transparency, and ramping up recalls is part of that process.” There are very few secrets that stay secrets forever, so transparency is very important to auto companies when it comes to issue of safety with their products.

What do you think? Does the number of recalls make you feel better or worse about the quality of your vehicle?

 

Honda’s Efforts to Reduce CO2 is a Global Effort

Honda is proving to the world that it is dedicated to reducing its CO2 emissions all over the world. Honda is going to invest more than $49 million to build a wind farm in Brazil; Honda’s goal is to reduce overall emissions by 30% by the year 2020 (compared to levels in the year 2000).

According to this article, “The proposed wind power plant will employ nine wind power turbine units and is expected to generate around 85,000MW of electricity annually, and will become operational by the end of September 2014.”

Honda is establishing a new subsidiary, Honda Energy do Brasil, which is doing all it can to minimize its own footprint while decreasing Honda’s overall carbon footprint.

“Wind power generation has proven to be very effective in reducing CO2 emissions,” said Honda Energy do Brasil president Carlos Eigi. ”Through the utilization of renewable energy, Honda will continue to be proactive in pursuing environmental conservation activities in Brazil.”

We love to see Honda’s dedication to environmentally products and processes, especially with stories that show it’s a global effort and not one that we can see in the United States.

Honda Voluntarily Recalls 46,000 Honda Fit Cars

On April 26 Honda issued a recall for Honda Fit vehicles from the 2012 and 2013 model years, affecting about 46,000 units in Canada and the United States.

According to the AP, “The concerned vehicles may be equipped with a faulty electronic stability control system (ESC) which may be faulty and will result in excessive yaw, or rotation. The excessive yaw rates will consequence in the vehicle’s direction of motion, by causing it to tilt too far prior to the application of the brake via the ESC,” which could result in an accident.

No injuries or accidents have been reported.

Honda dealerships like Northwest Honda, Sims Honda, and Apple Valley Honda will be able to fix the issue in affected vehicles.

“If you own a 2012 or 2013 Honda Fit and are concerned, please do not hesitate to call the dealership,” said Tony Carter, general manager of Northwest Honda in Bellingham. “Of course, any problem will be fixed free of charge.”

Interested parties can also call Honda at 1-800-999-1009 S99.

2013 Honda Civic Si Video Review

The 2013 Honda Civic is a new and improved hit with critics and consumers. Here is an honest, short video review of the 2013 Honda Civic Si.

Some of the highlights include the fact that the 2013 Honda Civic Si is “closer to an Acura than Honda” because of its 6-speed manual transmission and the fact that it goes zero to 60 mph in about six seconds. This driver also notes that the interior of the 2013 Honda Civic is Si is very nice inside with comfortable design and seating.

If performance is important to you, than you’ll be interested to know that the 2013 Honda Civic Si has great maneuverability and braking. According to this reviewer, you will “feel like you’re a part of the car.”

True, it’s 201 horsepower engine may not be all that impressive, but on such a small car and with such great design, you don’t really need all those horses to get the performance you want.

“The 2013 Honda Civic Si is a great, contributing member to the Honda Civic family,” said Tod McLaughlin of Apple Valley Honda. “Each member of the Honda Civic family has something different for different drivers. The 2013 Honda Civic Si is a fantastic car for people who really care about performance and really want to be able to zip around.

Another aspect of becoming a Honda Civic Si owner was also noted by the reviewer: the fantastic reliability and dependability of Hondas!

Honda CR-V vs Chevy Equinox

There are a lot of quality crossovers in production right now and two of the most popular vehicles are the 2013 Honda CR-V and the Chevy Equinox. This article does a good job of comparing the two and, wouldn’t you know, the Honda CR-V comes out on top.

Both of these vehicles tend to attract families or couples who need to move stuff around (like dogs, camping equipment, etc.), so I’ll start with the most important comparison: storage.

“The center console of the Honda CR-V provides ample storage room that is easily within reach of the driver and front passenger that makes a great place to store maps or anything that may need to be accessed quickly and easily. The Honda crossover also has plenty of space for larger items. First, the rear seats can be folded nearly flat using a one-touch, spring-loaded lever that is easy to get to and operate. When the seats are folded down, the 2013 Honda CR-V has nearly 80 cubic feet of cargo space. The Chevy Equinox comes in with only 63.7 cubic-feet. ”

The next most important thing is probably gas mileage, which is comparable between the two. The CR-V bests the Chevy Equinox by 1 mpg city driving (23 mpg) and its a draw at 30 mpg highway. But when you add in the reliability and dependability of Honda, there’s really no comparison.

“The 2013 Honda CR-V is truly the best in its class,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager of Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “It’s a crossover that has as much storage as you could hope for. It’s easy, intuitive, fun to drive, and, well, it’s a great alternative for those families who don’t want to buy a minivan. And most families are on a budget, so you can’t argue with that gas mileage.”

Stop by Sims Honda, Northwest Honda, or Apple Valley Honda dealerships today so you can see exactly how big the 2013 Honda CR-V is and how it can do more than just transport kids to and from soccer practice.

Greenest Car Shopping Areas…Don’t Include Seattle

I thought I knew what to expect as I read this article in honor of Earth Day that listing the locations of America’s greenest car shoppers.

Until I saw the list, that is. Here is the list cities most buying hybrids, electric vehicles, and other green cars:

10. Sacramento—Stockton—Modesto, California

9. Medford—Klamath Falls, Oregon

8. Lima, Ohio

7. Honolulu, Hawaii

6. Washington D.C.

5. Eureka, California

4. Portland, Oregon

3. San Diego, California

2. Monterey—Salinas, California

1. San Francisco—Oakland—San Jose, California

There were a couple things about this list that stood out to me. The first is that Lima, Ohio is eighth on the list (where is Lima, Ohio?). The second, and most surprising to me, is the fact that Seattle (and surrounding area) is not on the list at all (and that Lima, Ohio is). As a Puget Sound driver, it seems crazy to me that Seattle is not on the list because I see so many hybrid vehicles on the road.

The article is right that it makes sense that the list would be full of West Coast cities because it has”…abundant charging stations, special perks for eco-friendly drivers in some western cities and robust infrastructure, the West Coast is well equipped to cater to the needs of eco-conscious drivers.” This seems especially true for Seattle, which is also a city of early adopters and prides itself on its technological know-how.

However, Seattle is still oddly missing from this list.

What do you think? Was this a mistake on the part of Cars.com or is there a reason Seattle didn’t make the list?

Order Your Acura NSX from Honda Now…Wait Until 2015 to Get it

According to this article, Honda is taking order for the Acura NSX now…but production on the supercar doesn’t start until 2015.

Judging by the pictures and the video in the article, it seems well worth getting on the list and waiting. Vroom! The Acura NSX debuted at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2012 and since then, buyers have been lining up…and Honda has been taking names…and deposits.

“The new NSX will be powered by a mid-mounted, direct-injected V6 engine mated to  Honda’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system. It will  also utilize two electric motors that will power the front wheels for extra grip  and stability at high speeds but also to reduce pollution and increase fuel  economy.”

The Acura NSX will be for sale in the UK in a couple years, but if residents there want to ensure they get one, they can put down a deposit of $7,626 (US).

What do you think? Based on the pictures and limited information, would you put a deposit down for the Acura NSX and have the patience to wait for a couple years to get it?

Honda Voluntarily Recalls CR-V, Odyssey

Honda announced that is voluntarily recalling more than 225,000 Honda CR-Vs and Honda Odyssey minivans from the 2012 and 2013 model years. Also effected by the recall is the 2013 Acura RDX SUV.

According to this article, “Honda says the device that stops drivers from shifting out of park without a foot on the brake may not work properly, particularly in below-freezing temperatures.”

“If you have any questions about this recall or the safety of your vehicle, please call us,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager of Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee. “Honda’s first priority is safety and so is ours, so we want to fix this for you if there’s a problem.”

Honda will notify owners by mail by mid-May.

If you own a 2012 or 2013 Honda CR-V or Odyssey, do not hesitate to contact the professional staff at Apple Valley Honda, Sims Honda, or Northwest Honda.

 

Honda Teases New Vehicles for Shanghai Auto Show

Honda and luxury brand Acura release a couple photos teasing two concept vehicles that will be showcased at the Shanghai Auto Show in a couple weeks.

The photos, while lacking detail, look amazing. The brief article that comes with the photos states that the Honda photo looks like a minivan and, while it may be that, it looks like it could also be a full-sized crossover or larger CR-V-type vehicle. The Acura photo looks like a full-sized that could be bigger than the Acura MDX.

We won’t have to wait long to see picture of the real vehicles because the Shanghai Auto Show is at the end of the month. What would like you like to see from Honda? A made-for China minivan or a full-sized crossover?
