Generations of the Honda Accord: Keeping Drivers Happy for Decades

The Honda Accord has been around for a long time. In fact, we are now in the 9th generation of the Honda Accord.

The first Honda Accord came out in 1976 and cost $3,995. Since then, the Honda Accord has become a juggernaut in the midsize sedan category. Check out the visual below from http://visual.ly/history-honda-accord to see a visual history of the Honda Accord culminating in the 2013 Honda Accord, which is a hit with critics and consumers.

Which generations of Honda Accord did you drive?

Honda Sales Rise in March

The all-new 2013 Honda Accord to Honda’s sales to new heights in March, with the Accord’s 36.4% boost over last year! On the whole, Honda’s sales rose 7.1%.

“It’s amazing the difference in sales from a year or year-and-a-half ago,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager of Sims Honda in Burlington. “Honda was struggling after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, but we’ve fully recovered and, with the help of some great new cars like the 2013 Honda Accord, we’re back on top.”

Honda’s luxury brand, Acura had sales that were up 26.3%.

“Our core models, Civic, Accord, CR-V and Odyssey, continue to lead the industry where it counts,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of American Honda. “It’s particularly rewarding to see Accord and Civic winning new customers against a headwind of competitor incentives and value-reducing fleet sales.”

According to the article, the sales of the Honda Crosstour and Honda Pilot both rose by an impressive 11%.

“The Honda Crosstour is a vehicle that doesn’t get a lot of attention, but is a great option for people who want more than car, but not CR-V,” Hofkamp said. “The Honda Pilot has always been one of our most popular vehicles, especially for families. With tax returns coming back, I’m not surprised to see boosts with both of these vehicles.”

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”

Honda Claims 2 of Top 10 Hottest Selling Cars in U.S.

The Honda Civic and Honda Accord cracked the top ten of the hottest selling cars according to this article from AOL Autos.

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.”

Also, helping the 2013 Honda Accord get major sales is the fact that it starts at just around $20,000. It gets an estimated 24 city/34 highway mpgs.

The Honda Civic drove in at number 10 on the Hottest Selling Cars list moving almost 28,000 vehicles off dealership lots last month.

“The 2013 Honda Civic is a great commuter car,” Hofkamp said. “It gets 28 mpgs with city driving and 36 mpgs on the highway. It’s a great, compact car at a great price.”

The 2013 Honda Civic starts at just around $18,000.

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.

Drive a Honda, Use the HOV Lane

A new report stated that Honda makes the most cars that can legally drive in California’s HOV lanes with only a driver in the vehicle.

Why? Because Honda makes the most gosh-darn environmentally friendly vehicles.

According to the California Air Resources Board, Honda makes four vehicles that meet its air quality standards to be eligible to use the carpool lane even when there’s only one occupant. The four vehicles are:

  • The Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid. The 2014 Accord Plug-In Hybrid sedan has a EPA driving range of 570 miles with an EPA rating of 115 MPGe, a standard used to measure the combined efficiency of an electric vehicle.
  • The Honda Civic Natural Gas. The 2012 Civic Natural Gas (CNG) has an EPA of 31 MPG.
  • The Honda Fit EV, which has an EPA rating of 118 MPGe with an EPA driving range of 82 miles.
  • The FCX Clarity, which has a EPA rating of 60 MPEe with an EPA driving range of 240 miles.

This article points out that using the HOV lane in California can shave 30 minutes off your commute where a ten mile drive can often take 30 to 40 minutes. That is DEFINITELY something we can relate to if you’ve ever hit Seattle traffic during rush hour or there is an accident in one of the two through lanes in downtown Seattle. The HOV lane is your friend in the Puget Sound area!

“The average annual five year fuel savings of the Honda Accord Plug-In, Honda Civic CNG and Honda Fit EV is about $7,783.  The fuel savings for the FCX Clarity haven’t been released.”

If you care about the environment, saving money and getting around faster (sounds pretty good right?), then be sure to stop by Apple Valley Honda, Sims Honda, or Northwest Honda dealerships today. Not all of these vehicles may be available in Washington state yet, but no doubt any of them would make a big difference in your life and your budget.

2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Raises the Bar

The 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In is the latest and greatest in the Honda lineup with some very impressive specs that should alleviate most people’s concerns about owning a plug-in.

For example, some people worry about having to leave the car plugged in all day in order to take it for a short drive. The Honda Accord Plug-in only takes 3 hours to completely charge on a 120-volt outlet and only 1 hour on a 240-volt outlet.  Consumers also worry about the range of a plug-in vehicle (no one wants to go for a drive and run out of a charge), but the Honda Accord Plug-in can go almost 600 miles!

Another comforting fact is that the Honda Accord Plug-In is, well, still an Accord with all of the dependability, technology and comforts you expect from an Accord.

2013 Honda Accord’s Technology Makes it a “Contender”

The performance, design, and overall quality of the 2013 Honda Accord has been well-documented by critics and consumers alike, but this reviewer sums up much of the success of the 2013 Honda Accord in one word: technology. Here’s what he had to say about some of his favorite technological features of the 2013 Honda Accord:

LaneWatch: “Instead of a simple blind spot warning light in the right exterior mirrror, Honda has a camera that SHOWS you what’s behind there. The camera displays its image on the “navi” screen, so as soon as you turn on your right turn signal, a video shows the road behind you on the right fading away. Of course, if there’s something in that vicinity, you’ll see that, too…The left outside rearview mirror has a split mirror with a more convex surface on the outer edge, again acting like a blind spot monitor. At first, I thought the convexity wasn’t enough, but it proved to be just right.”

Center console cameras: “There are two screens in the center of the dash; one for the navigation system (and back-up camera and blind spot monitor) and one for audio. If you aren’t using the top screen, it becomes a second audio screen.”

Green driving: “The best aid to green driving, however, is the speedometer surround. In normal mode, it is white, but when you start driving more economically, it turns green. Like many of these features, it almost becomes a game trying to keep it green.”

We agree that the technology included standard in all trims of the 2013 Honda Accord is what sets it apart from all other midsize sedans. That’s right, every trim comes with LaneWatch technology and a backup camera because Honda thinks that every driver should have technology to be safer.

Stop by Northwest Honda, Sims Honda, or Apple Valley Honda today to see for yourself all the technology that the 2013 Honda Accord has to offer you!

 

 

2013 Honda Fit Wins Two “Best Car for the Money” Awards from U.S. News & World Report

The Honda Fit is one of Honda’s most popular vehicles, quickly gaining on the likes of the Civic and Accord. With two new awards from U.S. News & World Report, the 2013 Honda Fit will likely continue with its upward trend.

U.S. News & World Report awarded the 2013 Honda Fit as “Best Subcompact for the Money” and “Best Hatchback for the Money” beating out other popular models by Toyota, Subaru, and all other major manufacturers.

“The Fit brings truth to the concept that big things can come in small packages,” said Mike Accavitti , vice president of national marketing operations, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “With an amazingly roomy interior, snappy styling, great driving dynamics and industry-leading Honda quality, Fit proves that small cars can provide value well beyond their size.”

The gas mileage, space, and Honda dependability has made the Honda Fit not just popular with experts and critics, but also with the average buyer.

“Lots of people come to Sims Honda thinking they either want an Accord or a CR-V,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager of Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “But they end up driving away in a Honda Fit after they get in and realize it has a lot of space, gets awesome gas mileage and has a very versatile interior. It has almost 91 cubic feet of passenger space and 21 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row of seats! And it comfortably seats five people…unless you want to fold down the seats flat to utilize that space.”

According to the press release, “…the exclusive 60/40 split rear Magic Seat® offers multiple seating and cargo-carrying configurations. With its one-motion dive-down functionality, it can fold flat into the floor to provide a maximum 57.3 cu-ft. of rear cargo volume. Compared to any other vehicle in the subcompact class, the five-passenger Fit provides the lowest, flattest cargo floor and the most cargo volume. The Fit’s interior thus can easily be converted to tall-object mode or long-object mode based on the shape of the cargo.

Here are some of the other awards earned by the 2013 Honda Fit

  • A “Top Safety Pick” rating by the IIHS
  • A 2013 Residual Value Award from ALG
  • A 2013 Best Resale Value Award from KBB.com
  • Recognized as a “greener choice of 2013″ by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE)
  • A seven-time Car and Driver magazine “10Best Cars” award winner

Stop by Sims Honda, Northwest Honda or Apple Valley Honda dealerships to check out the award-winning (many times over) 2013 Honda Fit. You may think you want an Accord or CR-V, but don’t walk off the lot until you’ve taken the 2013 Honda Fit for a test drive and visualized your family and your stuff in its spacious passenger and cargo space.
