Honda Recalls Honda Fit Hatchbacks

Honda announced that it is voluntarily recalling Honda Fit Hatchbacks from the 2012 and 2013 model years. The recall affects about 48,000 vehicles in the United States.

This is expansion of the recall issued in April. The total number of vehicles affected since that announcement is 91,000.

According to this article, “The vehicles need a software update to the vehicle’s electronic stability control system, Honda said in a statement.”

“If you have any questions or concerns, please call us,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager at Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee. “Driver and passenger safety is the most important thing to us, so we want to make sure that all vehicles are functioning properly. Of course, any problem will be fixed for free to the customer.”

2012 Honda Civic Gets Praise from MotorWeek

Much has been written about why the 2012 Honda Civic was redesigned so quickly. Like this blogger, some say it was because it was “so bad.” However, bloggers like him seem to miss the point that it was still the best selling compact car in the U.S. last year. And usually consumers know the difference between bad and good cars.

That being said, expectations were set high for the 2012 Honda Civic and some critics were disappointed. However, the folks at MotorWeek were not as evidenced by this video calling the 2012 Honda Civic energy smart and stating it is “excellence evolved.”

This critic notes that while the actual size of the car was smaller, the interior of the 2012 Honda Civic actually grew, among other positive features, including incredible gas mileage that the Honda Civic is renowned for. While the 2013 Honda Civic is an incredible redesign, the 2012 Honda Civic is still available at many Honda dealerships and, because of that quick redesign, available at an even better value.

Stop by Sims Honda, Northwest Honda, or Apple Valley Honda to see if there are any great deals on the 2012 Honda Civic…new or used!

 

Honda Civic Si Transformed Into a Race Car: Video

We were intrigued by this short video that transforms your regular 2012 Honda Civic Si into a race car on the biggest stage. Because of the length of the video, I thought it would be a relatively easy process.

Well, it’s not exactly easy.

But it isvery interesting. And I’m not even a take-the-car-apart-and-put-it-back-together kind of gal.

If you want to see how a regular Honda Civic Si goes from normal commuter car to racing machine, check out this short documentary. It’s pretty cool.

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.”

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.”

Three Hondas in Top Six of Greenest Cars

The Honda Fit, Honda Civic Hybrid, and Honda Insight were listed in the top six of Greencars.org’s ‘greenest’ cars list for 2012.

The Honda Fit placed second, the Honda Civic Hybrid placed fifth, and the Honda Insight placed sixth.

“This isn’t surprising at all,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager of Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “Honda prides itself on developing vehicles that get great gas mileage and are low-emissions. Whether its manufacturing, selling, or after the cars are sold, Honda wants to be low-impact on the environment.”

  • The Honda Fit (electric engine) was just one point short of the number one car. It gets 3.9/3.1 miles/highway per kilowatt hours (instead of mpgs).
  • The Honda Civic Hybrid gets 44 mpg (city and highway.
  • The Honda Insight gets 41/44 city/highway mpg

See the complete list HERE.

The Honda Fit is a hit with critics and consumers alike for its compact nature on the outside, but surprising amount of space on the inside. The Honda Civic was the best-selling car last year, in good part because of its reliable name and gas mileage. The Honda Insight is a relative unknown compared to the Fit and Civic, but obviously one that car-buyers should take a look at, especially if they want a car that’s environmentally friendly and gets fantastic gas mileage.

Honda Commercial Admits 2012 Deserved Better

The 2012 Honda Civic was the best-selling car last year, but still had some critics (who were professional critics). Honda took that criticism to heart and created the 2013 Honda Civic with a mid-cycle ‘remodel.’

Honda knows there’s always room for improvement and admitted as much in its commercial, which you can see HERE.

By all accounts the newest Civic is a hit with consumers and critics alike.

“The new Civic is has an improved interior and, the bottom line is, it’s still the Civic,” said John Clough, sales manager at Northwest Honda dealership in Bellingham. “You get some of the gas mileage in the industry, the reliability of a Honda, and incredible resale value. Plus, if you want a deal, you can always check out the 2012 Civic, which was the best-selling car last year despite what some people said about.”

Come see how Honda made the 2013 Honda Civic even better. Stop by Northwest Honda, Sims Honda, or Apple Valley Honda dealership for a test drive.

 

Auto Industry Has Best Year Since 2007

With credit more available and the economy slowly recovering, the U.S. auto industry sales rose 9 percent led by individuals and businesses who may have stayed out of the market for a couple years and now need to replace aging vehicles.

While this article focuses a lot on GM and Ford, the first paragraph of the article (and another paragraph near the end) mentions that this growth is led by foreign manufacturers, like Honda.

Of course growth in the automobile industry is welcomed by every automobile company, foreign or domestic, and the level of growth last year is definitely encouraging. However, we thought the most interesting part of this article was the discussion of how national politics and tax increases on midde-income families could affect the automobile industry.

Many industries, including the auto industry, were and are paying close attention to the debt ceiling talks and the fiscal cliff that was “largely averted” Jan. 1 of this year. The article points out that there was a payroll tax increase that took effect at the beginning of the year and the hostile national politics affecting the economy may keep people off the dealership lots.

The 2 percent tax increase will take about $1,000 from the average household budget, the article said, which is about the same as a down payment on a vehicle.

“It would have been nice if all the open questions had been resolved in the ‘fiscal cliff’ discussion over the holiday, but clearly they weren’t, and that does extend this period of uncertainty from a consumer point of view,” Jonathan Browning, head of Volkswagen AG’s American unit.

The auto industry is hoping that more available financing and an economy that’s recovering as a whole will be enough to compensate for uncertainty and higher taxes.

“The cheap financing and improved income will make up for that, but that’s something we’re going to have a keep an eye on,” Jesse Toprak of TrueCar.com said.

What do you think? Will $1,000 less out of your family’s budget and uncertainty about the economy (and the politics involved) affect your car buying this year?

 

2012 Honda Civic vs the 2013 Honda Civic

That title may be a little misleading. I mean, you can’t really ‘vs’ when you’re on the same team and one model is the new and improved version of the previous car, but this video is a very interesting and honest head-to-head comparison of the 2012 Honda Civic and 2013 Honda Civic.

If you’ve been following Honda news at all, you know that Honda came out with the 2012 Honda Civic that met some critics. However, as pointed out in the video, it was still the best-selling car in America. But CNN.com thinks that’s an “Awful lot of people who should’ve waited” for the 2013 Honda Civic.

And while the 2012 Honda Civic was still wildly successful with consumer, Honda believe there’s always room for improvement and, so, it took the Civic back to the drawing board and made some significant improvements. I highly recommend watching the video, but in case you don’t have 2-3 minutes, here are the highlights:

  • The 2013 Civic looks better on the outside with the new grill and lines
  • The 2013 Civic looks and feels better on the inside, even though it has the same design as the 2012;Honda upgraded the internal materials making it feel nicer
  • The steering and suspension feel better in the 2013 Civic
  • And, while the engines are the same (meaning the same, great gas mileage), the 2013 Civic is quieter and doesn’t seem as gruff.

These may not seem like big issues, but Honda took the criticism to heart and came out with a new and improved 2013 Honda Civic. This created an opportunity for buyers to purchase the improved 2013 Civic or get a great deal on the now “out-dated” 2012 Civic (again, the best-selling car of last year).

For your chance to see how improved the 2013 Honda Civic is or take advantage of deals on the ‘outdated’ 2012 Honda Civic (the best-selling car in America), stop by Sims Honda, Apple Valley Honda, or Northwest Honda dealerships today!

Hondas Beat Competition in all 3 Head-to-Head Shootouts on Cars.com

Hondas Beat Competition in All 3 Head-to-Head Shootouts on Cars.com

We love Hondas, so it’s no wonder that we write about how much better Hondas are than other cars. But, in an effort to show that it’s not just us who love Hondas, here’s an AWESOME article about how Honda vehicles beat out all other vehicles in three different face-offs: the $16,000 Subcompact shootout (2012 Honda Fit won), the $25,000 Compact SUV shootout (the 2012 Honda CR-V won), and the $26,000 Midsize Sedan shootout (the 2013 Honda Accord won).

Not only did Honda win, but they won each shootout by an average of 26 points. We can’t make this stuff up.

The article provides a great breakdown for the pros and cons of each car tested in each shootout, including the comments of each judge and the real-life test-family. If you are considering by a vehicle in any of these three categories, I HIGHLY recommend you read the article relevant to you because they do a great job with specifics.

 

Here’s what you need to know from the $16,000 Subcompact shootout:

  • “The verdict: ”The Fit is a triumph of cargo volume, versatility and execution,” Wiesenfelder said, “and its powertrain is a winner. From the first moment, the Fit begged to be driven hard.” Enough said.”
  • All the judges and the test-family raved about the overall roominess of the vehicle that looks much smaller on the outside then it feels on the inside. In fact, the second row seats fold UP so you can still have a flat loading space.
  • It’s fun to drive. More than any of the other cars tested, the Honda Fit handled magnificently on corners, hills, bumps, etc. No need to worry about driving a puny, wimpy
    car. Drive one that is fun to drive!
  • It got the second best gas mileage with EPA tested 28/35 city/highway mpg. The judges got an actual gas mileage of 33.4 mpg.
  • See the verdict on each individual car HERE.
  • See the overview of this shootout HERE.
