Select Honda Pre-Owned Vehicles Recognized as Safer Choices for Teen Drivers by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)

  • Certain model year Honda Accord, CR-V, Element, Odyssey and Pilot vehicles rated as some of the best pre-owned vehicles for teen driver safety
  • Honda is the most durable, longest lasting brand in its class1

Several model years of Honda pre-owned vehicles have been recognized by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) as part of its first-ever list of safer used vehicles for teen drivers. Research conducted by IIHS found that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among teenagers, and suggests that the type of vehicle driven has a big effect on the degree of risk. Further IIHS research showed many teens drive used vehicles lacking important safety technology, and, as a result, a list was compiled to help guide parents in making safer choices.

Honda pre-owned vehicles earning this first recognition from IIHS as among the best, safer choices for teen drivers under $20,0002 include the Honda Accord Sedan (2012 and later), Accord Coupe (2013-14), CR-V (2012 and later), Element (2007 and later) and Honda Odyssey (2011 and later). Additionally, the Honda Pilot (2006 and later) and the Honda Odyssey (2005-10) were included on the list of good choices for teen drivers under $10,0002.

“Enhancing the safety of our customers and the quality of our products is a top priority for Honda,” said Art St. Cyr, vice president of product planning and logistics at American Honda. “Our long-term commitment to enhancing safety and durability makes Honda an ideal choice when shopping for safe, reliable transportation, new or pre-owned, for all drivers including teens.”

For added piece of mind, customers choosing a Certified Pre-Owned Honda (http://www.certified.honda.com) vehicle on this list from one of our authorized Honda dealerships, an extensive limited warranty is included. According to IHS Automotive vehicle registration statistics, Honda is the most durable, longest lasting brand in its class1.

Vehicles considered “best choices” for under $20,0002 have good ratings for side crash protection, good head restraints and seats for rear crash protection, and good roof strength to protect occupants in rollover crashes. Vehicles considered “good choices” for under $10,0002 have good or acceptable side crash protection and head restraints rated better than poor. If rated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the vehicles earn a 4 or 5 Star Overall Vehicle Score, for model years 2011 and later, or 4 or 5 Stars in the front and side crash safety tests for earlier models tested under NHTSA’s old rating system.

All Honda vehicles on the list come equipped with standard Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with traction control (what IIHS calls Electronic Stability Control or ESC) and provide good protection in moderate overlap front crash tests. According to IIHS, systems like Honda’s VSA® reduce fatal single-vehicle crash risk by about half and fatal multiple-vehicle crash risk by one-fifth (see Status Report, June 19, 2010, at iihs.org).

Honda Honored as a “Highway Safety Hero” by the Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety for Advancing Pedestrian Safety

  • More than 10 million Honda and Acura vehicles purchased in the U.S. feature pedestrian injury mitigation features and designs
  • More than 95 percent of model year 2014 Honda passenger vehicles and 100 percent of model year 2014 Honda light trucks come equipped with standard rearview cameras, reaching 100 percent overall application for 2015 model year

Honda’s commitment to introduce advanced vehicle designs aiming to reduce pedestrian injuries and enhance driver visibility with standard rearview camera application has earned Honda recognition as a “Highway Safety Hero” by the Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety (Advocates). For 2014, Honda was the sole company honored receiving the “Highway Safety Hero” award along with 26 current and former members of Congress, eight state officials and 14 citizen activists “in recognition of efforts to save lives, prevent injuries and make roads safer.”

As part of its commitment to improving safety for all road users, Honda has led the U.S. automotive industry in the application of safety and driver assistive technologies as standard equipment – including features that aim to reduce injuries to pedestrians in a collision, such as collapsible hood hinges and breakaway windshield wiper pivots, with a focus on reducing severe head injuries, which account for roughly 60 percent of pedestrian fatalities.

Further, Honda has taken a comprehensive approach to the application of rearview cameras. More than 94 percent of Honda and Acura models sold in the U.S. in 2013 were equipped with standard rearview cameras. No other brand has as many models equipped with standard rearview cameras for the 2014 model year and by the 2015 model year, rearview cameras will be standard on all Honda and Acura models.

“For more than a decade, Honda has focused on reducing the threat of injuries to pedestrians as part of our ‘Safety for Everyone’ approach,” said Chuck Thomas, chief safety engineer at Honda R&D Americas, Inc. who accepted the award on Honda’s behalf. “As we continue to research other advanced technologies such as vehicle-to-pedestrian sensing technologies, this work will be an integral part of our dream to eliminate motor vehicle collisions entirely.”

Rearview cameras are just one aspect of Honda’s overall approach to enhanced driver visibility and situational awareness, demonstrated by the broad application of technologies such as Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) systems on Honda models. These systems use a camera mounted behind the windshield or a front mount radar system to identify and alert drivers to a potential collision with a vehicle detected in front of them, or to alert drivers if the car is unexpectedly moving out of a detected lane. Other available features aimed at improving driver visibility are the Expanded View Driver’s Mirror, Honda LaneWatch display and Acura’s Blind Spot Information (BSI) system.

Honda Civic Recall

Honda is voluntarily recalling 9,800 2014 Honda Civic LX models to inspect the tires of the vehicles, which may have possible tears in the bead area.

According to this article, “The potential tears occurred when a supplier accidentally pinched the tire beads between the assembly equipment and the steel wheel rims while assembling the tires to the rims, the company said. Tire bead tears may create rapid air loss and tire failure, it said. Because the defect was discovered during a routine factory check, it is unlikely that many of these tires are on the street, according to American Honda. The company said it is unaware of any crashes, injuries or consumer complaints associated with the defect. ”

If you are concerned about your 2014 Honda Civic LX, please do not hesitate to contact us at Apple Valley Honda, Northwest Honda, or Sims Honda dealerships. Any parts that need to be fixed or replaced will be done so free of charge to vehicle owners.

Honda’s New “Don’t Text and Drive” Ad Tugs Heartstrings Without Gore

There are have a lot of ad campaigns warning of the dangers of texting while driving. Most of the sad, gut-wrenching, and some are down-right brutally gory. Honda has a new “Don’t Text and Drive” advertisement that is sweet…until it’s not.

It certainly makes its point without the realistic video of a violent collision and we love that approach.

2014 Honda Civic is “Safe, Reliable, Fuel Efficient”

This article is a pretty straight-forward review of the 2014 Honda Civic, but the bottom line is the “Civic retains its high-scoring personality.”

Sure the author complained that the mirrors in the visors didn’t have lights and trunk didn’t have a pull down lever (I don’t think I’ve ever owned a car with one of those), but he didn’t miss the boat on the overall quality of vehicle, drivability, safety, and fuel efficiency that makes the 2014 Honda Civic the best new compact car available.

“The 2014 Honda Civic is simply one of the best cars for commuters and people who want a smaller car with great gas mileage, dependability, and safety,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager at Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee. “Sometimes people think that smaller cars aren’t as safe and around here we get some pretty crazy weather, but with the new Civic you don’t have to compromise safety to get a smaller, more affordable, fuel efficient car.”

Not only is it safe and affordable, it is “fun to drive.”

“The revised Civic—most especially the Si—is fun to drive. It steers nicely and moves easily through curves with its all-independent suspension, stability assist and traction control systems and front/rear stabilizer bars.”

Honda and Acura Rearview Camera Systems First to be Recognized as Advanced Technology Features by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

Honda’s efforts in the areas of enhanced driver visibility have been recognized by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) as part of its 5-Star Safety Ratings program (also known as the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP)), with nearly all Honda and Acura models with rearview camera systems becoming the first vehicles in the industry to be recognized by the U.S. Department of Transportation for having met its Advanced Technology Feature performance criteria.

Honda vehicles earning this first recognition from NHTSA for the application of recommended rearview camera systems (what NHTSA calls rearview video systems) include the Honda Accord Coupe, Sedan, Hybrid and Plug-In, Civic Coupe, Sedan, Hybrid and Civic Natural Gas, Crosstour, CR-V, CR-Z, Fit EV, Odyssey, Pilot and Ridgeline1; as well as the Acura ILX and ILX Hybrid, MDX, TL, TSX, RDX, RLX and RLX Hybrid (see table below). Additional Honda and Acura models that have been equipped with standard rearview camera systems are expected to have their rearview camera systems recognized as Advanced Technology Features in the near future, including the all-new 2015 Fit subcompact car and 2015 Acura TLX midsize luxury sedan, both launching in spring 2014.

“Rearview cameras are an integral part of Honda’s approach to enhance driver visibility,” said Art St. Cyr, vice president of product planning and logistics at American Honda. “By the 2015 model year all Honda and Acura models will have rearview cameras standard on all models, yet another example of how our company is committed to enhancing the visibility and safety of our customers and everyone on the road.”

The addition of rearview video systems to NHTSA’s list of recommended Advanced Technology Features was intended to encourage manufacturers to improve the rearview visibility of their motor vehicle fleet; the NCAP Advanced Technology Features also include Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) systems which also are offered on many Honda and Acura vehicles. More information about crash avoidance technologies that are part of the Government 5-Star Safety Ratings program can be found at safercar.gov.

Starting with the 2013 Honda Crosstour, American Honda has taken a comprehensive approach to enhancing driver visibility and confidence on the road, beginning with the widespread application of rearview cameras. More than 94 percent of Honda and Acura models sold in the U.S. in 2013 were equipped with standard rearview cameras.

Rearview cameras are just one aspect of American Honda’s 360-degree approach to enhanced driver visibility and situational awareness, demonstrated by the broad application of technologies such as FCW and LDW systems on Honda models. These systems use a camera mounted behind the windshield or a front mount radar system to warn drivers of a potential collision with a vehicle detected in front of them, or to alert drivers if the car is unexpectedly moving out of a detected lane. Other available features aimed at improving driver visibility are the Expanded View Driver’s Mirror, Honda LaneWatch display and Acura’s Blind Spot Information (BSI) system.

In addition to applying the next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure to most of its models, American Honda has applied the following safety features on all its models as standard equipment: Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with traction control; an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS); side curtain airbags (most vehicles equipped with a rollover sensor as well); dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags; and front side airbags. Other available safety and driver-assistive technologies available on Acura vehicles include the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) and Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS).

Honda Odyssey Continues Safety Leadership with 14-Year History of Top Safety Scores from National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

America’s most popular minivan, the 2014 Honda Odyssey, has received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score, the top score available, in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). This means the 2014 Odyssey is the only minivan to earn the highest possible rating of TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the IIHS, including a top score of GOOD in the new small overlap front test, and the NHTSA NCAP 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for 2014.

“With a 14-year history of top ratings in NHTSA’s New Car Assessment Program, even as those top ratings have become harder to achieve, family car buyers have learned that the Odyssey is designed to help take care of their precious cargo,” said Art St. Cyr, vice president of product planning and logistics at American Honda. “For customers looking to buy a minivan that achieves the highest-available safety ratings from the NHTSA and the IIHS, the Odyssey is the one and only choice.”

Already the benchmark minivan in terms of fuel efficiency2 and innovative features, the Odyssey’s occupant safety features for the 2014 model year are further enhanced through the application of Honda’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure. The second-generation of the ACE™ body structure has also been applied to the 2013-14 Honda Accord and 2013-14 Civic models that have also earned a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating. Civic is the only compact-class vehicle and Odyssey is the only minivan to achieve a GOOD rating in the IIHS’ very rigorous new small overlap front test.

The next-generation ACE™ body structure is designed to improve frontal crash energy management through a wider range of offset and oblique collision modes. In addition, other body reinforcements work in tandem with the strengthened body structure to better maintain the occupant compartment volume during frontal collisions by providing additional crash energy pathways to help mitigate the forces transmitted to the passenger compartment.

In addition to applying the ACE™ body structure to most of its models, standard safety and driver assistive technology on all Honda models includes Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with traction control; an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS); side curtain airbags (some vehicles equipped with a rollover sensor as well); dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags; and front side airbags.

While Honda has made structural improvements to the 2014 Odyssey, Honda also has applied a new type of side curtain airbag that includes a front chamber design intended to provide additional protection in situations where occupants move in a more angled outboard trajectory, such as those that occur in oblique or offset crashes.

The Odyssey represents Honda’s robust product development and manufacturing capabilities in North America. Designed in Los Angeles and engineered at Honda R&D America’s in Ohio, the Odyssey is manufactured by Honda Manufacturing of Alabama, LLC, using domestic and globally sourced parts. More than 95 percent of all Hondas sold in the U.S., are built in North America.

Kicking Tires’ Honda Civic Gets a Ding

I wrote about the three accidents my family has been in over the past few months, so it was nice to see this article and know that we aren’t the only ones who have bad things happen to their Hondas.

This incident wasn’t exactly the same since the Honda Civic was the victim of a two car accident that overflowed on to the parking spot where the Civic was resting, but damage was done as you can see in the pictures featured in the article here.

We also thought it was timely considering all of the icy, snowy weather much of the Eastern United States is getting. No doubt there will be a few fender benders during this time. The great news for all those Honda drivers is that Hondas are so well designed that they absorb as much as the impact as possible so you do not (I speak from personal experience). Our situation was similar to this one where the damage didn’t LOOK real bad until the repair experts got in there and saw how much impact the car had taken under the surface…specifically designed that way to keep occupants safe.

“Accidents happen,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager of Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “It might be your fault, it might not be. But in a Honda you can have confidence that your are driving some of the safest cars are on the road.”

3 Car Accidents in 7 Months, Honda Accord Kept My Family Safe

I have written in the past or at least mentioned the fact that my family owns a 2009 Honda Accord (purchased from Northwest Honda dealership in Bellingham). It is our go-to car (in fact it was our only car for a number of years). We have put more than 130,000 miles on it in the 4 years we’ve owned it. It literally brought both of our kids home from the hospital.

And it has protected us all. In fact, we have gotten into three car accidents in the last seven months in our 2009 Honda Accord.

The first one was my fault. It was a fender bender while I was taking my daughter to her first swim lesson. I got distracted looking at the progress of the lovely house I passed occasionally and didn’t stop in time. There was actually much more damage than it appeared, but our Accord kept us perfectly safe.

The second accident occurred a couple months later while I was taking my daughter to her open house for preschool. We were stopped in a left turn lane and someone coming around the corner lost control and smashed into the driver side tire/bumper. Right behind where my daughter was sitting. This time I had some neck/back pain, but, overall, our Accord protected us as good as we could’ve hoped.

Our third accident came just a couple days ago. We were involved in a 4 car pile-up; we were the 3rd car in line when someone simply didn’t stop and smashed into the car behind us which pushed us into the car in front of us. Once again, though, it appears our Honda Accord accepted the brunt and we all walked away shaken but uninjured.

While the number of collisions might be unique, our stories are not. Collisions happen as we go about our daily life. These past few months have made me or grateful than ever that we picked the Honda Accord as our family vehicle because it has kept my family safe…despite the crazy number of collisions in the last seven months.
