2014 Honda Odyssey is the Modern Minivan

Yes, we realize we may have to change the name of this blog to “The Blog about the 2014 Honda Odyssey and 2014 Honda Accord,” but we get our content from the internet, so whatever the internet is talking about is what we talk about.

And the internet is talking a LOT about the 2014 Honda Odyssey and it’s all good stuff.

We don’t like to be repetitive so we’ll start with the part of this review (from the Spokesman Review in Spokane) that literally made is LOL (ok, chuckle): “The Odyssey (from $29,655, including destination) seats up to eight in a cabin that’s easily reconfigured to accommodate an apocalypse-worthy Costco run.”

Because, really, we all know what a non-apocalyptic Costco run can look so it was fun to imagine an “apocalypse-worthy Costco run” and it’s good to know the 2014 Honda Odyssey can handle it.

For as much as is awesome about the 2014 Honda Odyssey, this one talked a lot about the superior handling of this modern minivan, perhaps because people don’t expect much from minivans. The 2014 Honda Odyssey is changing all that.

“Despite its large capacity, the Odyssey drives small. It’s responsive and easy to maneuver in traffic. On the road, it’s quiet and stable…Relative to crossovers, the Odyssey’s low center of gravity produces a stable, surefooted feel at highway speeds and through fast corners. Honda’s subtle, sure-handed approach to suspension and chassis dynamics give it a lively quality underhand. The ride is firm and controlled but compliant over rough surfaces. Steering is responsive and nicely weighted, with good on-center feel.”

And, of course, the 2014 Honda Odyssey comes with a plethora of technological options, including Lane Watch, back up cameras, Honda infotainment system, and (on the Touring model) the  HondaVac vacuum!

“The 2014 Honda Odyssey really brings the minivan to a whole new level,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “If you are “scared” of minivans, come check out the 2014 Honda Odyssey. It’s the least minivan minivan you’ll find on the market and you’ll probably fall in love with its style and functionality.”

Honda Accord Hybrid is “Moving”

We have written a lot about the the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid; some are lengthy reviews and others highlight lengthy reviews. So this article titled the “Top 10 vehicles that moved us in 2013,” provided a brief review of why the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid is the best sedan in the industry…and nailed it.

According to this article, “The Accord sets a new standard for hybrids, with a groundbreaking blend of comfort, performance and efficiency. Starting at $29,945, it costs only slightly more than a Toyota Prius — and matches its efficiency in a better-looking, better-equipped, more powerful, full-sized sedan. EPA rating: 50 city, 45 highway. We had no trouble matching those figures in a real-world test. Just for fun, we tried to maximize the mileage with careful driving — and hit 60 mpg over two hours on flat city streets. Seriously. No joke. We are talking about a luxurious 3,600-pound sedan that can turn zero-to-60 mph in seven seconds.”

Here at Apple Valley Honda, we couldn’t agree more.

“The Honda Accord Hybrid is one of the best cars that Honda has ever produced,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager at Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee. “And that’s saying something. Can you imagine getting more than 5o miles per gallon? And the technology that comes standard on the Accord Hybrid will blow your mind. And it’s entirely affordable. Definitely stop by and check out the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid.”

Stop by Apple Valley Honda, Northwest Honda, or Sims Honda dealership to find out what all the buzz about the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid is about.

2014 Honda Odyssey is “Most Versatile Car Ever Made”?

There’s a lot to love about the 2014 Honda Odyssey: the space, the vacuum, the handling, the technology, and more.

One of the two dislikes listed by www.theweeklydriver.com? “It’s called a minivan, which could discourage buyers who think it’s actually a minivan.”

This family hauler is more like the Swiss army knife of vehicles because of all the things it does and you can get accomplished with it.

“What isn’t there to like about the 2014 Honda Odyssey?” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “If you are looking for the best family vehicle, then you need to stop by and check out the 2014 Odyssey. Even if you’re a “No Minivan” kind of person, you may find yourself falling in love with the very non-minivan maneuverability, gas mileage, style, and technology. And the vacuum. Can’t forget about the Honda-vac in the back.”

When it comes to family vehicles, space and versatility of that space is king…which is why the 2014 Honda Odyssey reigns.

According to The Weekly Driver, “The Odyssey’s all-around spaciousness is impressive. There’s headroom and legroom aplenty and comfort without compromise. It’s an ideal cruising car for a weekend getaway for three couples without having to worry about a gas-guzzler’s limitations.”

They also had a long list of “likes” that we think you will also appreciate:

  • Quiet ride
  • Agile Maneuvering
  • Good acceleration for its class
  • Deep trunk
  • Large, clear navigation system and back-up camera screen.
  • Easy entrance, exit.
  • Strong overall vision.

Edmunds.com Chooses 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid over 2013 Passat

The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid has trounced basically every other car in its class in basically every category, but especially gas mileage. In an attempt to be fair Edmunds.com did a side by side comparison of the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid and the 2013 Volkswagen Passat.

Long story short: 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid wins.

According to the article, “Finally, we have a sedan that fully embraces hybrid technology without boastfully displaying it in every detail. In fact, the nuances differentiating it from the standard Accord are subtle enough that only those in the know will notice. And that’s a good thing.

“More importantly, from behind the wheel, the Accord is a hybrid that doesn’t require a full restructuring of your expectations about how a car should drive. Sure, you’ll notice its nuances if you’re paying attention. But you don’t have to. It’s a hybrid you can drive like a normal car, should you choose. And if you’re so inclined, the Accord provides sufficient indulgence to satisfy even the most fuel-pump-averse hypermiler.”

The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid wins in every category (except when it narrowly lost in cargo space) and, so, it is worth the small increase in price over the Passat.

  • Gas Mileage: The Accord “trounced” the Passat: 46.3 mpg to the Passat’s 39.8 mpg. “…the Accord Hybrid to run in three modes: full EV mode up to 74 mph, series-hybrid mode where the engine is powering the batteries for the electric motor that is driving the wheels and gasoline-only mode for those long, steep climbs.”
  • Doesn’t act like a hybrid. “You’ll not want to rush either of these sedans onto the freeway in front of a charging tractor-trailer. However, should you find yourself in such a circumstance you’ll be better served in the Accord, which hits 60 mph a full 1.6 seconds before the Passat (7.4 seconds, or 7.1 seconds with 1 foot of rollout as on a drag strip vs. 9.0 seconds [8.7 with rollout]). “
  • “In the Accord, however, there’s an immediate response to throttle input that’s both welcome and usable. The combination of instantly available electric torque and the lack of a need to downshift gets the credit here.”
  • The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid is nicer inside compared to the Passat’s dated and cheaper interior
  • The Accord offers much more in terms of technology (standard back up cameras, etc.)

“There really is no comparison to the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid,” said Tony Carter, general manager at Northwest Honda in Bellingham. “The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid beats out every other sedan in gas mileage, style, technology, handling and everything else.”

Stop by Northwest Honda, Sims Honda, or Apple Valley Honda to find out why the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid beats out every other car.

New Toyota Tacoma Recalled for Engine Flaw

Toyota announced that it is recalling the 2013-2014 Toyota Tacoma for a serious engine problem.

According to this article, “According to a bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, some of those vehicles may suffer from an engine flaw that could cause the Tacoma to stall in traffic — or worse.”

It’s a small number of vehicles affected by the recall built in couple months, less than 4,000 vehicles, but is a safety concern.

“The problem stems from improperly built valve springs in the Tacoma’s engine. Over time, wear and tear may cause the springs to break, and if that happens while a vehicle is being driven, the engine will stall, increasing the risk of an accident.”

Honda Ridgeline Best Truck for Winter Driving

When we think of safe vehicles for driving in winter conditions (you know, snow, ice, cold rain, etc.), our minds often go to trucks. They are big, they are safe (and also good at pulling smaller cars out of ditch), but not all trucks are created equal when it comes to driving in winter weather.

In fact, this writer for Torquenews.com declared that the “Honda Ridgeline Outperforms Chevy, Dodge 4×4 in winter driving conditions.”

According to this writer, “I followed one for a few miles on Monday and was amazed by its obvious exceptional handling as well as skid and slip-free starting and stopping. Both, without the benefit of snow cables or chains…Honda’s success in superior off-road, snow and muddy condition ride and handling comes via the Ridgeline’s exclusive (VTM-4) Variable Torque Management 4 wheel drive system and lock control. No one else in the industry has it. The aforementioned allows the driver by the push of a button to lock the rear differential for up to 18 mph in forward or reverse. No one else in the industry offers this system as a standard feature on a light truck. Stuck in the snow, bogged in the mud, Ridgeline will work its way out of the hole.”

That’s some pretty high praise from a reliable source: the Honda Ridgeline outperforms other trucks in winter driving. And here in the Pacific Northwest we’ve already had our fair share of winter conditions with temperatures in the teens and snow throughout the region.

There won’t be any new Honda Ridgelines for two years, so if you want to check out the 2014 Honda Ridgeline for your winter driving needs, stop by Apple Valley Honda, Sims Honda, or Northwest Honda dealership before they are all gone!

2014 Honda Ridgeline is Versatile, Functional Truck

The Honda Ridgeline broke the truck mold when it hit the market in 2005… and the 2014 Honda Ridgeline is no different as one of the most flexible trucks on the market.

According to this article, “As with previous models, the 2014 Honda Ridgeline is equipped with one of the most versatile truck beds available. The sloped sides of the bed are still present and help the Ridgeline to stand out among its competitors. Consumers are also sure to appreciate that the dual-action tailgate is also present in the new model. The class-exclusive tailgate not only swings down like typical tailgates, but it also swings open like a door, making it easier to access the truck bed and lockable in-bed trunk—another one-of-a-kind feature found in the back of the Ridgeline.”

With a 3.5 liter V6 engine and 250 hp and the ability to tow 5,000 pounds, the 2014 Honda Ridgeline exceeds the towing capacity of competitors, including the 2014 Toyota Tacoma.

Website Uses 2014 Honda Accord PHEV to Show How to Optimize Gas Mileage

In the news we here a lot of complaints, and even law suits, when cars’ gas mileage doesn’t match up to the one on the sticker. The title of this article, “2014 Honda Accord PHEV Has Impressive Real World Fuel Economy Statistics,” supports the fact that it does in fact get its reported 50 mpg city/45 mpg highway.

This is encouraging because there have been recent incidences of car manufacturer fudging their fuel efficiency numbers, which is one of the major problems the article sites as the EPA designates the a vehicle’s gas mileage.

The second problem was probably the most entertaining to read about because I live in the Seattle-area and know this to be true: “The second problem is that, for the most part, drivers have no idea what they’re doing. Sad, but true, perhaps they don’t properly maintain their vehicles, they overload them, or they drive too fast. You might have bought the latest and best-fuel-economy vehicle, such as the award-winning 2014 Honda Accord PHEV, but if you can’t drive it responsibly, you’ll never see fuel economynumbers anywhere near those on the EPA window sticker.”

There is also a really great infographic that illustrates exactly how the way a driver drives affects the gas mileage they get out of their car. Check it and slow down! :)

2014 Honda Civic HF Edges Out Toyota Corolla LE Eco

The Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla are big-time sellers in the United States. Buyers go after the Civics and Corollas when they need a compact car with great gas mileage.

With several different models of the Civic and Corolla, this article does a side by side comparison of the 2014 Honda Civic HF and the Toyota Corolla LE Eco because they are the most fuel efficient gasoline engines (best gas mileage excepting the respective hybrid models).

It was an interesting side by side comparison, but here’s the gist: with basically the same gas mileage, horsepower, and size, there were really only two objective and definite differences safety and transmission.

“he Toyota Corolla achieved a Top Safety Pick rating from the IIHS, but the Civic beats it with a Top Safety Pick +. The new “+” rating from the IIHS addresses how a car reacts to a “small overlap” front crash, for example, when an oncoming car veers out of its lane and hits another car head-on, but with only a 25 percent overlap. It’s difficult to manage all that energy with such a small crash area, but the Civic managed a “Good” rating, while the Corolla only achieved a “Marginal” score.”

The 2014 Honda Civic has a standard five-speed transmission versus the Toyota Corolla’s two-speed CVT, “and that would be a deciding factor in choosing between the two.” The two-speed CVT makes the driving “experience even more foreign by maintaining engine speed, giving you the sensation that no matter how aggressively you step on the throttle, the engine isn’t spooling up the way you think it should.”

Stop by Apple Valley Honda, Sims Honda, or Northwest Honda dealership to take the 2014 Honda Civic HF (or any other Civic) out for a test drive!

Honda Teases the Future at Tokyo Auto Show

The Tokyo Auto Show, as one might imagine, is one of the most prestigious auto shows in the world. Honda reserved the most floor space to unveil 18 production models and a few other concept cars. All are wow-worthy.

While there is much to review with the production models and the concept cars, including the much-buzzed-about NSX, we won’t review all of it, but we thought this quote summed up nicely the current vehicles Honda is producing and the vehicles yet-to-come: ““I would like our customers around the world to feel the strong spirit of Honda. Please keep your expectations high for these two sports models. Now, future cars cannot simply be fast and cool. They also must not show any compromise in the area of environmental concerns,” said Takanobu Ito, Honda Motor Co. Ltd. president, chief executive officer and representative director.”

And not just the sport models. Honda also had on display its insanely successful and popular (on all accounts) 2014 Honda Accord series (gasoline, hybrid, hybrid plug-in, etc.).

Certainly the astounding-looking NSX and S660 concept vehicles got lots of buzz, but another one that got a lot of attention was the urban SUV, Vezel (which will go by a different name when it hits the U.S.)

According this article, “Another must-see at the show is the world premiere of the N-WGN, the fourth model of the N Series of mini-vehicles, as well as the world premiere of the planned production model of the second-generation Global Compact Series, which is based on the Urban SUV Concept that was unveiled at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in January.

“We believe that this new model will serve as a basic car for the future of mini-vehicles, N-WGN. The N-WGN is a mini-vehicle that balances everything at a high level, including spaciousness, safety and driving performance that go beyond those of conventional mini-vehicles and far exceed customer expectations,” said Sho Minekawa, Honda Motor Co. Ltd. senior managing officer and chief operating officer for regional sales operations.”

Undoubtedly the Tokyo Auto show is stirring up a lot of excitement in Honda and about Honda. We just can’t wait!
