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.

 

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?

“Admirable” Honda Accord Made Even Better With 2013 Model

We never get tired of reading awesome reviews of the 2013 Honda Accord. This review does nice, honest job if listing the 2013 Honda Accord’s specs and comparing to other models like the Toyota Camry, but the last paragraph says it all:

The folks at Honda did a great job of making the already admirable Accord even better in 2013. The combination of appearance, performance, convenience and reliability will definitely keep the Accord remain at or near the top of this highly competitive segment.”

We have mentioned many times the technology that comes standard on all 2013 Honda Accords, including the backup camera and LaneWatch blind spot camera, but this article does a great job of describing the interior and experience of the 2013 Honda Accord.

“There is no doubt that if you come to Northwest Honda and take the 2013 Honda Accord for a test drive, you will be impressed with the quality of materials and design in the interior of the car,” said John Clough, sales manager at Northwest Honda dealership in Bellingham, Washington. “Potential buyers will also be interested to know there is V6 engine option, which is an option that is disappearing in the industry.”

Here is some bullet point information from the article we think would be helpful in convincing you that the 2013 Honda Accord is the car for you:

  • “Performance: 2.4-liter, four-cylinder, 185 horsepower; 3.5-liter, V6, 278 horsepower
  • Mileage estimate range: 21-36 mpg
  • Price: $21,680 to $33,430
  • Warranty: 3years/36,000 miles; drivetrain 5 years/60,000 miles; corrosion 5 year/unlimited”

The Honda Accord ranked fifth overall selling more than 36,000 cars just in the month of March!

“The 2013 Honda Accord is a hit,” said Keith Hofkamp of Sims Honda dealership in Burlington, Washington. “And for good reason. The technology you get standard with even the base model of the 2013 Honda Accord is really impressive. All models come with the backup camera and LaneWatch (blind spot) camera in addition to some other really great features. It drives great and, of course, it gets impressive Honda gas mileage. Really, it’s no surprise the 2013 Honda Accord is flying off lots.”

Honda Accord, Civic Most Stolen Cars

The Honda Accord and Honda Civic are the top two most stolen and recovered vehicles in 2012 in the United States, according to a new LoJack Corp. study.

This is the Honda Accord’s third year at the #1 spot. The Honda Civic moved up to the #2 spot and the Toyota Camry fell to #3.

Why are the Honda Accords and Honda Civics the most stolen? It’s not that complicated, according to the writer of this article:

“The reason these cars top the list is an obvious one — these are popular models. But D.J. Thompson, director of law enforcement at LoJack, tells me that these cars aren’t just on the top of the list because there are more of them on the road than most other makes and models.”

Basically, Honda makes awesome cars, so more people buy them, which means more people steal them because there is a bigger market.

“It’s true, the Honda Accord and Honda Civic are some of the most stolen vehicle, but only because it they are two of the best and, therefore, most popular vehicles, on the road,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager of Apple Valley Honda in Apple Valley. “In a way, it’s rather flattering.”

I guess there is a dark side to being some of the best-selling cars in the market. But should that scare people away? The writer of the article has experience with this exact issue when his own 1997 Honda Civic was stolen and here’s what he said:

“So did I abandon Honda for a less innocuous brand? Nope. They’re reliable, efficient. I’m comfortable with them. But my new car is a Honda Fit. At least that model’s not on LoJack’s top 10 list ­— yet.”

That’s right, Honda’s reliability and efficiency keep this loyal customer coming back even after he’s had a taste of the dark side of popularity.

Honda Odyssey Steals New York Auto Show with New Functional Feature

We read about a lot of really cool gadgets and features automobile manufactures put in their vehicles, so it takes a lot to get us a THIS excited about what Honda put in the new Honda Odyssey. Any guesses? Ok, we’ll tell you because we just can’t keep it to ourselves any longer:

A vacuum!

We know, we know. It sounds rather lame until you pause to think about how wonderful it would really be to have a vacuum right there in your car!

We all know you have arrived at adulthood when you started getting excited about things like new appliances, new socks, and other ‘mundane’ items. Equally so, you know you have arrived at parenthood when you are driving around in a minivan, which by many accounts is not so exciting (unless it’s the Honda Odyssey, which can really move). However, Honda has managed to combine the seemingly not so cool minivan with excitement over seemingly mundane things and made REALLY cool and functional feature.

And it’s not just us parents who are excited about the possibility of not having to haul the vacuum out to the car or stop at a car wash every time a kid steps on a mountain of spilled fish crackers. EVERYONE at the New York International Auto Show was crowded around  to see the vacuum, which, according to this article, stole the show!

The article points out that the Honda Odyssey didn’t change much from the previous version (and why would it? It’s the best-selling and highest quality minivan in the industry), except for the new vacuum that acts like a central vacuum system in many new homes.

“You plug the hose onto the wall and start cleaning. Honda spokesman Chris Martin demonstrated the machine’s speed at picking up Fruit Loops and  fragments of Goldfish crackers. The hose is long enough to reach every corner of the interior and can also be used to clean another car parked nearby.”

What do you think? Is the fact that Honda ingeniously included a vacuum in the Honda Odyssey big news?

2013 Honda Odyssey, 2013 Honda CRV Voted “Best Family Cars for Families” Awards by U.S. News & World Report

Both the Honda CRV and Honda Odyssey have made quite a name for themselves over the past several years, but their reputations and great family cars earned some reinforcement after they both won awards from U.S. News & World Report.

The 2013 Honda CRV and 2013 Honda Odyssey both won awards for “Best Cars for Families.”

The 2013 Honda CRV was named “Best Compact SUV for Families” and the 2013 Honda Odyssey was named “Best Minivan for Families” (like there would be an award for “Best Minivan Not for Families”).

“”If you’re looking for a top safety-rated, fuel efficient, fun-to-drive family vehicle, you can’t really go wrong with a Honda,” said Mike Accavitti, vice president of national marketing operations, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “Both the CR-V and the Odyssey exemplify ‘family friendly’ with top safety ratings, proven Honda quality and loads of smart features to keep the driver and all passengers comfortable and connected.”

As family vehicles, safety is one of the most important factors and we are happy to report that both are Top Safety Picks by the IIHS and earned 5-start overall ratings by the NHTSA (basically, vehicles don’t get any safer than this unless they come with armored plating).

Here’s what they’re saying about the 2013 Honda CRV: “The 2013 Honda CR-V provides upscale styling, excellent fuel efficiency, and a host of standard convenience features, making it one of the most fun and functional compact SUVs in America…Compact on the outside and roomy inside, the CR-V represents an unparalleled balance of size and capability in the entry SUV segment. With its car-like interior comfort, a smooth and quiet ride, plus innovative features, the versatile CR-V is a great fit for families or individuals with an active lifestyle.”

The Odyssey Touring is rated at a remarkable 28 mpg,2 the highest EPA highway fuel economy rating of any eight-passenger minivan.”

“Really, you can’t go wrong with either of these vehicles,” said Tod McLaughlin of Apple Valley Honda dealership in Wenatchee. “The 2013 Honda CRV may be more appropriate if you don’t have a lot of kids (yours or the soccer team) to haul around just because it’s got a functional space perfect for packing camping gear, the dogs, or whatever else you can think of. The Odyssey has always been the top minivan and for good reason. It’s safe, good gas mileage, and Honda really designed the details with families in mind.”

Stop by Apple Valley Honda, Sims Honda, or Northwest Honda dealership to take the 2013 Honda CRV and 2013 Honda Odyssey for a test drive so you can see why U.S. News & World Report named them the “Best Cars for Families.”

2013 Honda Civic Keeps Great Gas Mileage

The 2013 Honda Civic is improved in a couple areas, namely the upgrade of interior materials, but one thing that hasn’t changed from previous models is its industry-leading gas mileage. This article goes into detail, but here’s what you need to know if you care about getting a new car with incredible fuel efficiency:

  • The 2013 Honda Civic Hybrid gets a combined 44 mpg
  • The 2013 Honda Civic with a 1.8 liter HF, five-speed automatic gets 33 mpg (29 city/41 highway)
  • The 2013 Honda Civic with a 1.8 liter four cylinder engine automatic (the base Civic) gets 31 mpg combined (28 city/19 highway). If you want a manual, you get 28 mpg combined (28 city/36 highway)
  • The Honda Civic Natural Gas (sold in select markets) uses natural gas instead of traditional gasoline. It gets 31 mpg combined (27 city/38 highway).
  • The Honda Civic Si with a 2.4 cylinder four-cylinder engine gets 25 mpg combined (22 mpg/31 highway)

As you can see, if gas mileage is a high priority for you, then the Honda Civic is still the car for you. However, 2013 Honda Civic also has improved performance.

According to the article, “As for the driving experience, the 2013 Civic’s modest suspension changes produce nimbler handling without creating an overly-harsh ride. The cabin is a quieter place to spend time, too, thanks to thicker glass and added soundproofing, while the car’s softer dash also seems to help with interior acoustics. Front seats are quite good, especially in light of the car’s price positioning…”

“The 2013 Honda Civic is a great car for commuters, folks who do a lot of road trips, older individuals who don’t need to haul kids around and need an economic vehicle,” said Tony Carter, general manager of Northwest Honda in Bellingham. “The Honda Civic has a record of delivering fantastic gas mileage and the 2013 Honda Civic is no different. With the upgraded materials and performance, the redesign was very successful. Everyone should check out the 2013 Honda Civic.”
