Batdad Drives a Honda Odyssey

Did you know that when Batman isn’t fighting crime, he’s driving a Honda Odyssey and mildly terrorizing his children with nuggets of parental correction in his rough, Batman voice.

Oh, wait. Not Batman. Batdad, as seen on Vine.

“When I’m not fighting crime, I drive a Honda Odyssey. It gets better gas mileage,” said Batdad.

Ok, that’s about the only Honda-related statement that Batdad makes, BUT it’s the first one in this montage and he’s not getting paid to say it, so we think it means that much more.

Watch Batdads Honda Odyssey endorsement and some of his shenanigans HERE.

Honda Recalls Odysseys, Acura MDX

Honda is voluntarily recalling about 318,000 Odyssey minivans and 56,000 Acura MDX sport utility vehicles due to possible defect with the airbags that may cause them to deploy without being in a collision.

The recall affects Honda Odysseys from 2003-4 model years and Acura MDX SUVs from the 2003 model year.

According to this article, “The recall comes after an investigation started in June by N.H.T.S.A. Honda told the safety agency that a chip within the air bag control unit may have “low noise toughness against electrical noise surges.” Because of that, the air bags may be triggered without a crash. Honda says dealers will install an electrical noise filter next to the component that controls air bag deployment.”

No injuries or collisions have been reported.

If you have any questions or concerns about your Odyssey or Acura MDX, please do not hesitate to call Apple Valley Honda, Sims Honda, or Northwest Honda dealership. Any repairs that would be required would be free of charge to owners.

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.

 

2014 Honda Odyssey’s Spokescrumbs Get Sucked by Minivan’s Vacuum

There are many, many features in the 2014 Honda Odyssey to love. But probably one of my favorite (besides the space and safety features) is the built in vacuum.

Who’s not so fond of it? The ‘spokescrumbs’ in the new commercials for the 2014 Honda Odyssey. You can see three different spots featuring the voices of Neil Patrick Harris and Rainn Wilson as the ‘lovable’ goodies that left behind by children.

As a mom who has plenty of ‘lovable’ spokescrumbs in the backseat of her 2009 Honda Accord, I am beyond excited about the built-in vacuum. And the new commercials.

Check them out and let us know what you think!

2014 Honda Odyssey is First Minivan to Pass IIHS Advanced Safety Test

Honda volunteered the 2014 Honda Odyssey for the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s latest safety test and became the first minivan to pass it. The 2014 Honda Odyssey earned the Top Safety Pick Plus rating from the IIHS, the first minivan to do so.

Other automakers have opted not to have their minivans tested because the IIHS small overlap test is not required yet.

“Our goal at Honda is to continuously advance the safety performance of every Honda vehicle to fulfill the trust our customers place in Honda,” said Art St. Cyr, vice president of product planning and logistics for American Honda Motor Co. Inc.

“We didn’t have to do this,” he said. “Some of our competitors have made the choice not to target this top safety rating even when introducing new models,” he said. “We are targeting and achieving this high standard even as part of mid-cycle refreshes on key, high-volume products. We are very confident that our model count will grow and grow even further in the coming months with testing of the all-new Acura RLX and the MDX.”

Here at Apple Valley Honda, Northwest Honda, and Sims Honda dealerships we are proud to sell some of the safest vehicles on the road, including the 2014 Honda Odyssey, the first minivan to earn the Top Safety Pick Plus rating. We know that you want your family to be safe, so we are proud to be a part of company that doesn’t wait until it’s required to meet safety standards; it initiates change and becomes the first in the industry.

Stop by Apple Valley Honda, Northwest Honda, or Sims Honda dealership today to take the safety minivan in the industry for a test drive: the 2014 Honda Odyssey!

Honda Tops All Other Automakers in Four Main Categories

2013 Honda Accord

TORRANCE, California, July 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Honda topped all mainstream automakers in percentage of sales to retail buyers during the first five months of 2013, with more than 98 percent[1] of the brand’s auto sales in the U.S. sold to individual (non-fleet) consumers, based on new-vehicle registration data from R.L. Polk & Co. With a strong focus on providing long-term value and low cost of ownership to its customers, the Honda brand has increased sales by 6.5 percent in 2013 with 668,597 Honda cars and light trucks finding new homes through the end of June.

Honda’s four best-selling models, Accord, Civic, CR-V and Odyssey, lead their respective segments[2] in sales to retail consumers. Together, these segments represent more than 50 percent of all light-duty vehicle sales in the United States.

“We’re earning our sales growth on the strength of our products and the value they deliver to individual car buyers,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of sales for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “Our strategy is unique among volume automakers, as we are focused on selling vehicles to individual car buyers and not corporate sales to fleets, which is why Honda vehicles have among the lowest cost of ownership and highest resale values in the industry.”

In the highly competitive mid-size segment, where Accord leads retail sales, many high-volume entrants have sold in excess of 30 percent[1] of their vehicles to fleet customers thus far in 2013 while over 98 percent[1] of Accords were sold to individuals (non-fleet). The 2013 Accord is the most-awarded[3] mid-size car when it comes to value.

“Honda continues to deliver on the promise that made them the Residual Value Award recipient for 2013,” said Eric Lyman, vice president of Editorial for ALG. “Honda keeps incentives and fleet penetration low – two actions that heavily impact future values. With high volume models like Accord and CR-V at the top of their respective segments, Hondas hold their value better than any other brand.”

According to Honda analysis of Polk new-vehicle registration data, more than 19 percent[1] of light-duty vehicle industry sales so far this year have been to non-retail customers such as rental-car companies, corporate and government fleet operations, most at steeply discounted prices compared to the average retail transaction price. Discounts on large volumes of vehicles can have a long-term negative impact on the residual or resale values of vehicles purchased at retail. This effectively increases the cost-of-ownership for retail buyers when they eventually sell or trade-in their vehicles.

2014 Honda Odyssey Features: Video

We have written much about the 2014 Honda Odyssey, including its incredible features, including rear view cameras and other safety features. Well, this time, instead of making a list, we found a two minute commercial that will SHOW you what an awesome family vehicle the 2014 Honda Odyssey is.

Honda Odyssey to Climb Pike’s Peak

You have never seen a tricked out minivan like this heavily-modified Honda Odyssey with 535 horsepower that is headed to the Pike’s Peak International Hill Climb to take place on June 30 in Colorado.

According to this article, “The race-bound minivan is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that uses a large Garrett turbocharger to churn out 535 horsepower and 460 lb-ft. of torque, a considerable bump over the regular-production Odyssey’s 248 ponies and 250 lb-ft. of twist.  The mill is linked to a six-speed transmission and an Acura-sourced limited-slip differential, while Brembo brakes hidden behind 19-inch BBS alloy wheels make sure the van can stop as well as it goes.”

Whoa. Now that is a minivan that I could probably convince my husband to drive. Even if the built-in vacuum has been replaced with a roll cage and the 16 inch television with a five-point harness.

Actually, that’d be even more reason for him to want to drive it.

“[Pikes Peak] is something I’m really looking forward to,” said Pagenaud. “I’ve done a little bit of rallying in France, and I used to watch highlights of the Pikes Peak race on television as a kid. Our entry will be unique, to say the least! A Honda Odyssey with power similar to an IndyCar will raise some eyebrows for sure!

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?

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?
