Honda Offers Free, Limited Paint Repair

There have been a few vehicles that have had some issues with paint flaking or coming off, so Honda is offering free paint repair for those vehicles with identified issues.

According to this article at ConsumerReports.org, the recall only applies to specific vehicles and parts on those vehicles. “For Civics, for instance, bulletin number 12-049 covers just the hood and top of the front fenders on 2006 to 2010 Civics that came in one of nine specified colors (four shades of blue, two shades of black, and three in gray or silver), and 2011 Civics of any color. Another TSB, 13-060, covers the roof and trunk of the same cars in any of the nine colors. Finally, TSB 13-004 applies to just the trunk lid of 2009 to 2011 Civics sold in 25 northern states, excluding the Pacific Northwest.

“Remedial work on the CR-V (2007-2011), Odyssey (2011-2012), and Pilot (2009-2011) is limited to “refinishing and polishing” the tailgate, and applies only to vehicles sold in 25 northern states. The relevant TSBs are 13-005, 13-002, and 13-003, respectively.”

We think this is a great step by Honda to treat it’s customers right! If you have any questions or have not been notified and you think your vehicle may be affected, please do not hesitate to contact Apple Valley Honda, Northwest Honda, or Sims Honda dealership.

Honda Will Replace Engine in 2006-2009 Civics with Coolant Leak

If you own a 2006-2009 with a coolant leak, Honda could replace your entire block (engine) for free, according to this article from Consumer Reports. “The free service applies to all Civics except the Hybrid and the Civic Si, and it effectively extends the original warranty to eight years, regardless of mileage.”

Leaking coolant can cause the engine to overheat and/or crack, so Honda has decided that vehicles with this issues should just get an entirely new engine.

“Honda wants to do right by the consumers who bought the Honda Civic because of its reputation for dependability and reliability,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager of Sims Honda in Burlington. “Certainly normal engines shouldn’t be leaking coolant if they are less than 8 years old, so there’s an issue here that Honda wants to comprehensively take care of. Replacing the entire engine is no band aid fix, that’s for sure.”

If you have a 2006 to early 2009 Honda Civic, please contact Sims Honda, Northwest Honda, or Apple Valley Honda to talk to someone about getting your vehicle’s engine replaced.

Honda Gets Coveted Spots on Consumer Reports List

Hondas captured two spots on Consumer Reports top cars of 2014 list.

The Honda Accord was chosen as the best mid-sized sedan and the Honda Odyssey was chosen as the best minivan.

“The 2014 Honda Accord is truly one of America’s most favorite cars,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “It’s not a favorite because industry leaders said so, it’s a favorite because consumers say so. And the Honda Odyssey is clearly the best minivan for many reasons, so it’s nice to see consumers agreed with what we already knew.”

Stop by Sims Honda, Northwest Honda, or Apple Valley Honda to take the 2014 Honda Accord or Honda Odyssey for a test drive!

2014 Honda Accord Hybrid Worthy of Name

Consumer Reports recently got their first drive of the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid and called it worthy of the ‘Accord’ name. Now that’s saying something.

Here’s what else Consumer Reports had to say: “Overall, marrying its slick hybrid technology to the already capable Accord and at a reasonable price is good news. It would be great if Honda were to use this system for its other so-called hybrid vehicles.”

Consumer Reports was equally impressed by the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid’s power and gas mileage. Not very often do you find good power and great gas mileage going together. In fact, it gets 196 hp and a combined 47 mpg.

“No matter how you slice it, the Hybrid’s powertrain is slick. The car sets off decisively, gliding on abundant electric-motor torque. Transitions between electric-only and gas-assisted power are barely perceptible. And unlike other hybrids, the brake pedal feels natural and linear despite its regenerative-braking duties. No learning curve needed.”

Stop by Apple Valley Honda, Northwest Honda, or Sims Honda to take the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid for a spin and see what all the buzz is about!

2014 Honda Odyssey Vacuum Really “Sucks”

It’s no secret. We adore the built-in vacuum in the 2014 Honda Odyssey.  We love the idea. We love the commercials. It’s just fabulous.

But does it really work.

According to Consumer Reports, it does.

We’re sure many people would expect a vacuum built into the vehicle itself not to work as well as a “real” vacuum, which is something Consumer Reports wanted to test.

What they found was that the vacuum in the 2014 Honda Odyssey “really cleans up.” Here’s what they said: “The bottom line. Honda’s built-in vacuum is a worthy addition to an impressive van.”

Stop by Sims Honda, Northwest Honda, or Apple Valley Honda today to find out why the 2014 Honda Odyssey is the best minivan on the market and test the Odyssey-worthy vacuum.

 

Business Insider: Toyota Corolla Cheaper and Not as Good As Honda Civic

The Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic have been forever-competitors. According to Business Insider, though, there is no competition with these new models: Honda Civic wins…unless your only consideration is price (the Toyota Corolla is $1,400 cheaper).

Consumer Reports called the Toyota Corolla “bland” and the Motor Trend wasn’t nearly as kinda saying, “The car remains more of an improvement for those who will only drive a Toyota than a real Civic- or Forte-challenger, even with those neat LED headlights and a well-tuned CVT.”

Comparatively, “In June, KBB named the 2013 Honda Civic the sixth best sedan under $25,000. The Corolla did not make the top ten.”

See, it’s not just us that thinks the Honda Civic is better than the “cheap” Toyota Corolla. Stop by Sims Honda, Northwest Honda, or Apple Valley Honda todayto take the new Honda Civic for a test drive!

Buy a Used Honda Ridgeline for Quality, Dependability Under $25,000

It is not very often we come across articles talking about buying a used Honda, so this one talking about consumers would score big if they could buy a used Honda Ridgeline for under $25,000 caught our attention.

Some industry leaders were very complimentary of the idea of buying a used Honda Ridgeline. Here’s what Consumer Reports had to say: “While not designed for serious off-roading, it proved capable in most applications.” Some comments from owners: “Like a Subaru on steroids,” “no quality issues other than declining fuel economy” and “amazingly flexible.”

Similarly, research firm J.D. Power said, ““better than most” grades for overall dependability and predicted reliability. Power also notes that it is its highest-ranked truck for quality, performance and design. Owners like its versatile storage/cargo-carrying features, but have misgivings about the Ridgeline’s lack of power and worse-than-advertised fuel economy.”

Since the Honda Ridgeline has a start price of around $35,000, you’d certainly be lucky to score a used one for under $25,000.

“The Honda Ridgeline wasn’t designed to be a work-truck,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager of Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “It doesn’t take the abuse that a lot of other used trucks have endured. Most used Honda Ridgelines are in really good shape with minor, if any, damage to the body or paint. Of course, here at Sims Honda, used vehicles undergo rigorous inspections, so you know you will only get the best used vehicles from here.”

If you’re interested in a used Honda Ridgeline, or any used vehicle, be sure to go to the Sims Honda, Apple Valley Honda, and Northwest Honda dealership websites where you will find the best deals on all kinds of quality used cars!

 

 

2013 Honda Accord Impresses Consumer Reports

The 2013 Honda Accord has received the much sought after blessing of Consumer Reports, the very respected consumer watchdog organization. ConsumerReports.org stated that Honda has met the expectations (and pressure) of redesigning the ever in-demand Accord with the 2013 Honda Accord. While the praise of the 2013 Honda Accord in this article by Consumer Reports (based on their “brief stint” when the car first came out in September) is somewhat reserved, it is nonetheless positive.

According to Consumer Reports’ initial review, “The Accord should certainly hold its own in both the marketplace, and barring unforeseen surprises, in our Ratings.”

Even better, in this article written a couple months later, Consumer Reports said Honda “nailed” the redesign of the Accord (and also blasts some other new sedans like the 2013 Subaru Legacy).

“The new Accord is roomy, nice to drive, well equipped, and very fuel efficient.”

Here are a few of the highlights that Consumer Reports say are improved in the newest edition of the Accord:

  • Steering is better and more responsive
  • Road noise is decreased
  • The continuously variable transmission (CVT) is well integrated
  • All trims come standard with USB connection, Bluetooth and “most impressively,” a backup camera
  • Upper trims come with forward-collision technology , lane departure warning system, and a camera/screen to help you see your passenger side blind spot (LaneWatch blind-spot camera system)
  • Competitive pricing: the four cylinder LX model starts at just $23,270.

The good news from Consumer Reports doesn’t stop there. “Inside, you are treated to one of the best driving positions available, comfortable seats, and terrific visibility.”

So, don’t just take it from us. Take it from the consumer advocates and Consumer Reports: the 2013 Honda Accord is the best new family sedan with room for everyone, handling to be jealous of, technology out the tailpipe, and gas mileage that leads its class.

Stop by Sims Honda, Northwest Honda, or Apple Valley Honda dealerships for you chance to take a 2013 Honda Accord for a test drive!

 

 

2013 Honda Accord is Consumer Reports Top Midsize Sedan

According to this article, the much-respected Consumer Reports selected the 2013 Honda Accord as top of its class “…and rightly so.”

The 2013 Honda Accord beat out other favorites in the class like the Hyundai Sonata and Toyota Camry, including the popular Camry V6 because, well, the 2013 Honda Accord’s V6 engine is just better.

The article stated, “…the accolade has already won the automaker some serious critical and consumer praise. Rather than simply rehashing an old idea, Consumer Reportspraised the 2013 Honda Accord as a vehicle that “alters the mid-sized sedan landscape” and comfortably takes the automaker back “to the front of the pack.”

Here are some of the highlights from this article:

  • “generously roomy interior”
  • “fun to drive character”
  • “impressive fuel economy” (40 mpg highway, 30 mpg combined)
  • “an agreeably low price”

The complete review by Consumer Reports won’t be out in print until its February edition, but you can see it online. Check back for our complete report and a link to that review shortly.
