    honda civic the best car

    Is the Honda Civic a Good Car? The 2018 Honda Civic is absolutely a good car. It’s a blast to drive and has a well-equipped cabin replete with high-end materials. Braking power is strong, steering boasts excellent feedback, and ride quality is comfortable. One of the Civic’s few downsides is its tricky infotainment system. Still, that shouldn't be a deal breaker given that the Civic is a terrific value. In fact, its combination of value and quality made it a finalist for our 2018 Best Compact Car for the Money award. Should I Buy the Honda Civic? Anyone looking for a well-rounded compact car should seriously consider the 2018 Honda Civic. It has a lineup of powerful engines and great fuel economy, but some rivals like the Toyota Corolla have easier-to-use infotainment systems. Still, the Civic’s attractive cabin has plenty of room for five people – so much so that you may not feel the need to look at a larger car, like the Honda Accord. Compare the Civic, Corolla, and Accord » Should I Buy a New or Used Honda Civic? Honda did not make any notable changes to the Civic for 2018. This generation started with the 2016 Civic, so if you're open to buying a used car, you may want to consider buying a virtually identical 2016 or 2017 model to save thousands of dollars. Just be aware that the sport-tuned Civic Si and high-performance Civic Type R models for this generation didn't debut until 2017.

The 2018 Honda Civic sedan starts at $18,940. Civic hatchback and coupe models are priced slightly higher, at $20,150 and $19,350, respectively. The base trim includes features like a rearview camera, Bluetooth, a 5-inch display screen, and a USB port. Competitors like the Kia Soul ($16,200) start at a much lower price and come with similar standard features, but the Civic with an optional continuously variable automatic transmission ($800) offers Honda Sensing in the base trim for $1,000 in sedan and hatchback models. Honda Sensing adds features like forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control. To get similar features in the Soul, you’d spend $5,660 more than you would on the Civic sedan. For specific prices and features for each trim level, look at the "Which Honda Civic Model Is Right for Me?" section below. Check out our U.S. News Best Price Program for great savings at your local Honda dealership. You can also find excellent manufacturer incentives on our Honda deals page. Honda Civic Versus the Competition Which Is Better: Honda Civic or Honda Accord? The Honda Accord is a midsize car and has more passenger room and cargo space than the compact Civic. That’s not a knock against the Civic’s spacious interior, though. The Accord is also fully redesigned for 2018; it comes with a larger standard infotainment screen (7 inches vs. 5 inches) and an extra USB port. The Accord features the standard Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety technology, including collision mitigation braking, lane keep assist, and road departure mitigation. Additionally, the Accord has a higher predicted reliability rating than the Civic. While the Accord belongs to a larger class and is an awesome car in its own regard, the Civic costs about $4,600 less. You could choose a higher Civic trim level and/or add packages or extra features for the same money you would spend on an Accord. The Civic is available in a few body styles, as well as some performance-oriented versions. If you truly need the extra room that the Accord offers, go for it. Otherwise, the Civic is a good – and less expensive – alternative. Which Is Better: Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla? The Toyota Corolla is a consistent favorite among compact car shoppers. That’s no surprise, given the car’s high reliability rating and excellent fuel efficiency. But look at the Corolla’s place in our rankings, and you can see that the Civic is the more well-rounded option. The Corolla suffers from dull handling and weak engine power, compared to the Civic and its engaging performance. These cars have about the same base price, so the Civic is the much better choice for your money. Which Is Better: Honda Civic or Hyundai Elantra? The Hyundai Elantra is good all-around car, but it doesn’t quite match up to the Civic. The Hyundai’s cabin is comfortable enough to be a daily driver, but the second row could use more legroom. Likewise, the Elantra’s performance is underwhelming. None of the car’s four available engines will wow you, and handling is pretty dull. Features like driver assistance technologies are available in more Civic trims and for a lower price. The Elantra has a higher predicted reliability rating and its base trim is a couple thousand dollars less than the Civic’s, but the Honda is worth springing for. Compare the Civic, Accord, and Corolla » Civic Interior How Many People Does the Civic Seat? Whether you’re in the sedan, coupe, or hatchback, the 2018 Honda Civic seats five in two rows of comfortable, supportive seats. The front seats provide plenty of room for the driver and passenger. The back row is similar, but taller rear-seat passengers might wish for more headroom. Civic and Car Seats There are two sets of LATCH car-seat connectors on the rear outer seats of the Civic, and there's an upper tether on the middle seat. The upper tethers are easy to locate and use, but the lower anchors are recessed too far into the seat cushions, which makes them challenging to find. Civic Interior Quality The Honda Civic has a well-built interior filled with quality materials, especially in higher trims. Civic Cargo Space If you’re looking for a compact car that doesn't skimp on cargo space, the Civic is a great option. Sedans have about 15 cubic feet of trunk space, and coupes offer roughly 12 cubic feet of space. For the most room, you’ll want the Civic hatchback, which has 25.7 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats up and 46.2 cubic feet with them down. Civic Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation The Civic comes with Bluetooth, a 5-inch display screen, and a USB port. Higher trim levels include a 7-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, satellite radio, HD Radio, an upgraded audio system, an additional USB port, and navigation. The optional touch screen infotainment system has sensitive audio and climate controls that are slow to respond to user inputs. Fortunately, there are additional audio controls on the steering wheel and climate controls on the dashboard. For more information, read What Is Apple CarPlay? and What Is Android Auto? Then, see the Best Cars With Apple CarPlay and Best Cars With Android Auto. Read more about interior » Civic Performance Civic Engine: Ready, Set, Go! The Civic has plenty of get-up-and-go. Even if you stick with the base naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine, you will not be disappointed. Still, the turbocharged four-cylinder is worth a look. It provides even better acceleration for a more enjoyable drive. If that isn’t enough for you, each body style has a performance-oriented model. For those looking for a sporty ride, there’s the 205-horsepower Si sedan and Si coupe, and the Type R Civic hatchback ups the ante with 306 horsepower. Civic Gas Mileage: Some of the Best The Civic gets great fuel economy estimates. The 2018 Civic sedan gets 28 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway with the standard manual transmission and base engine. The automatic transmission increases city mpg by 3. The turbocharged, 174-horsepower engine with the automatic transmission gets the best rating in the lineup: 32 mpg in the city and 42 mpg on the highway. Civic Ride and Handling: Lively and Composed The front-wheel-drive Civic has a perfect combination of sportiness and comfort. Handling is secure, the ride is comfortable, there’s minimal body roll, and steering is well-weighted. Read more about performance » Honda Civic Reliability Is the Honda Civic Reliable? The 2018 Honda Civic has a predicted reliability score of three out of five from J.D. Power. This is an average ranking. Honda Civic Warranty The Civic comes with a three-year/36,000-mile new vehicle warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty, which is typical for the class. Read more about reliability » Civic Safety Civic Crash Test Results The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2018 Civic sedan five out of five stars in frontal, side, and rollover crash tests culminating in a perfect five-star overall rating. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded the Civic the highest rating of Good in six crash tests. The Civic also earned a top rating of Superior for its front crash prevention features. Civic Safety Features All 2018 Civics come with a rearview camera, and there are numerous available driver assistance features. The Honda Sensing suite adds forward collision warning, lane departure warning, collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, lane keep assist, and adaptive cruise control. Honda LaneWatch, a passenger-side blind spot camera system, is also available. Read more about safety » Which Honda Civic Is Right for Me? The Civic comes in three body styles: sedan, hatchback, and coupe. The Sedan comes in five main trim levels: LX, EX, EX-T, EX-L, and Touring. The EX trim is your best bet. It comes with many desirable features – including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a larger 7-inch touch screen, and a moonroof – that you can't get in the base trim. It also comes standard with Honda LaneWatch. The Civic hatchback comes in the LX, Sport, EX, EX-L Navigation, and Sport Touring trims. The EX trim is the best value option, and it has similar features as the EX sedan. The coupe comes in LX, LX-P, EX-T, EX-L, and Touring trims. To get similar features as the EX sedan and Civic hatchback, opt for the coupe EX-T trim. For more-spirited drivers, there’s the high-performance Si sedan and Si coupe, and the Honda Civic Type R hatchback. Si models have a 205-horsepower, turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine, while the Civic Type R increases power output to 306 horsepower from a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. There's an abundance of options to choose from, so we’ve chosen five of the most popular trims to highlight. Honda Civic LX The Honda Civic LX has a starting price of $18,940. Coupe and hatchback models start at $19,350 and $20,150, respectively. LX sedans and coupes come with a 2.0-liter 158-horsepower four-cylinder engine. Civic hatchbacks come with a turbocharged 174-horsepower four-cylinder engine. No matter which body style you choose, you’ll find a rearview camera, Bluetooth, a 5-inch display screen, and a USB port. An automatic transmission ($800) and the Honda Sensing system ($1,000) are available. Honda Civic Sport The Honda Civic Sport ($21,750) is a hatchback-only trim. The Sport gets a more powerful 180-horsepower, turbocharged 1.5-liter engine and sporty enhancements like dual exhaust pipes, a spoiler kit, and sport pedals. Other additives include a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a rear-seat armrest, and fog lights. A manual transmission is standard, but you can get a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) for $800. Honda Sensing isn’t available in this trim. Honda Civic EX and EX-T The Honda Civic EX starts at $21,340 for the sedan and $23,250 for the hatchback. Both the sedan and hatch come with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, push-button start, satellite radio, a 7-inch touch screen, an eight-speaker audio system, HD Radio, a moonroof, Honda LaneWatch, and two USB ports. The EX-T trim is available as a sedan ($21,600) and a coupe ($21,700). This trim features the 174-horsepower engine and adds fog lights, dual-zone climate control, and heated front seats in both body styles. An $800 CVT and a $1,000 Honda Sensing system are available. Honda Civic EX-L The EX-L trim has a starting price of $24,000 for the sedan, $23,725 for the coupe, and $25,750 for the hatchback. It adds an auto-dimming rearview mirror and leather seats. Hatchback models also come with a navigation system, and sedan and hatchback models gain a power-adjustable driver’s seat. For an additional cost, you can add the CVT and Honda Sensing. Honda Civic Touring and Sport Touring The Honda Civic Touring comes in sedan ($26,800) and coupe ($26,425) body styles. It adds the Honda Sensing system, heated rear seats, and rain-sensing wipers. Sedan models add a power-adjustable passenger seat, and coupe models add a navigation system. The hatchback-only Sport Touring trim ($28,750) also adds a power-adjustable passenger seat and the Honda Sensing system, as well as an upgraded audio system and the 180-horsepower engine.

    honda accord the best mas car

    Thanks to the increasing popularity of crossovers, midsize sedans are no longer the default vehicle of choice for small families. Automakers aren't giving up the fight, however, with a number of traditionally popular models significantly refreshed or fully redesigned this year. Headlining the list is the 2018 Honda Accord, and its improvements are dramatic. It starts on the outside. The new Accord's fastback profile and pronounced styling lines make it look more luxurious and European than the norm. Inside, Honda has thoroughly reworked the interior, and it's now one of the nicest cabins in the class. On the top Touring trim, there's a pleasing mix of soft-touch plastic, leather upholstery, faux-leather door inserts, and convincing open-pore wood trim on the dash. Even on lower levels such as the Sport, the cabin is decked out with carbon-fiber-look trim and faux-leather-trimmed seats. Front and center is a new touchscreen that is much easier to use than the old system. Unlike the last Accord — which featured a touchpad-only interface that was slow and often maddening to use — the new screen is thoughtfully laid out and uses physical buttons and knobs for tuning and high-level navigational functions. The touchscreen, which is standard on all but the base LX model, also supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Pleasingly, the Accord also offers plenty of advanced driving features. Adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic braking, and lane departure warning and mitigation are optional on other Hondas, but they are standard on every Accord. Top-notch crash test safety scores give you added peace of mind, too. Overall, the redesigned 2018 Honda Accord significantly moves the needle forward in the midsize sedan segment. Its many strengths and lack of major drawbacks make it an easy recommendation for anyone looking for a spacious, comfortable and upscale four-door. Notably, we picked the 2018 Honda Accord as one of Edmunds' Best Midsize Sedans for this year. We recommend Though we appreciate the LX's wealth of standard features and the Sport's enthusiast-oriented setup, most shoppers will be happy with the midgrade EX. Like the Sport, it comes with a power driver seat and a touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability. It also adds useful extras such as blind-spot monitoring, satellite radio, a sunroof, and heated mirrors and front seats. It doesn't cost much more than the LX, and you'll love the extra luxuries whether you keep your Accord for two years or 20. Trim levels & features The 2018 Honda Accord is sold in five trim levels. The LX is the most affordable model and is loaded with features, including dual-zone climate control and advanced safety features. The Sport doesn't cost much more and comes with some visual مشاوره خانواده upgrades and Android Auto/Apple CarPlay compatibility. The EX gives up some of the Sport's flair but counts a sunroof and heated front seats among its upgrades. The EX-L primarily adds leather upholstery, while the top-trim Touring boasts every feature available on the Accord, including adaptive dampers for an even cushier ride. Trim tested Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the 2018 Honda Accord Touring (turbo 1.5L inline-4 | CVT automatic | FWD). Driving8.5 The Accord has a lot of strengths on the road. The drivetrain responds quickly and provides sufficient power. The car corners well, sticking to the road with no drama, and the brakes feel natural and strong. Only the steering falls short: While it's accurate and easy, it also feels artificial. Comfort8.0 The new Accord is quiet and comfortable in most situations. It insulates against traffic noise particularly well, though tire noise is noticeable on the highway. The ride smooths out small imperfections and absorbs larger bumps. Front-seat comfort is adequate. Interior8.0 Some small points aside, the interior of the Accord offers modern design, quality soft-touch materials, lots of room, and a user-friendly infotainment system and control layout. Taller drivers will want to test the seating position, though, as their knees may rub on a piece of hard plastic trim. Utility9.0 With excellent trunk volume, plenty of spots for small items in the cabin, and generally more space than you'll know what to do with, the Accord offers about as much utility as is possible for a sedan. Technology8.0 Honda's new infotainment system is a huge step up from the last generation, and it's integrated nicely with the gauge cluster screen and head-up display. A lot of active safety and driver aids come standard, and they work well. Voice commands fall short, and we generally relied on manual controls.

    Update: got the system recharged and the AC is cooling freakishly cold and I live in the desert where the temperature gets to 123F sometimes. I had an issues before changing the part. The ac when at idle would only blow around 70-75f and now its a little under 60 and idle. I learned a crap ton of on my own and I want to thank CL98267k for the advice. Change all your AC parts people. It saves you the hassle later on in life.

  13. Have 3 pin size holes in plastic gas tank. What works best to repair it
  14. Low&Slow

    A/C HELP!!! URGENT.

    Hey! I know im a little late on this, but I finally decided to get up and do the job after like 2 weeks of not having the proper tools. I didn't have any problems doing the job until I had to put the evap cover back on. The expansion valve was a little different than the one that comes with the 7th gen accord so I had to cut some plastic off inside the evap cover with some wire cutters. Fairly simple.. I would recommend that anyone doing this job, should get the oem part as I bought an aem part. im getting the system recharged today so we'll see how it turns out!
  15. 2017 Honda Accord LED Fog Lights OEM W3417 - Used in brand new condition. No scratches or broken tabs. Asking $200 for both
  16. So my car is having a weird issue, While the car is cold it runs great, but once it gets up to running temp it starts to have issues it sounds like it is running rough, and while driving it will turn off when you come to a stop. There are no check engine lights, and I checked the spark plugs.
  17. Can anyone tell me which is the positive and neagative wire for an aftermarket tweeter. Or, is there a way to tell from the tweeter. One side has a capacitor and if someone knows, I can tell which wire is the positive from the harness being plugged in. Thanks

    Best Honda Products

    Honda's global lineup consists of the Fit, Civic, Accord, Insight, CR-V, CR-Z, Legend and two versions of the Odyssey, one for North America, and a smaller vehicle sold internationally. An early proponent of developing vehicles to cater to different needs and markets worldwide, Honda's lineup varies by country and may have vehicles exclusive to that region. A few examples are the latest Honda Odyssey minivan and the Ridgeline, Honda's first light-duty uni-body pickup truck. Both were designed and engineered primarily in North America and are produced there. Other example of exclusive models includes the Honda Civic five-door hatchback sold in Europe.  Honda's automotive manufacturing ambitions can be traced back to 1963, with the Honda T360, a kei car truck built for the Japanese market. This was followed by the two-door roadster, the Honda S500 also introduced in 1963. In 1965, Honda built a two-door commercial delivery van, called the Honda L700. Honda's first four-door sedan was not the Accord, but the air-cooled, four-cylinder, gasoline-powered Honda 1300 in 1969. The Civic was a hatchback that gained wide popularity internationally, but it wasn't the first two-door hatchback built. That was the Honda N360, another Kei car that was adapted for international sale as the N600. The Civic, which appeared in 1972 and replaced the N600 also had a smaller sibling that replaced the air-cooled N360, called the Honda Life that was water-cooled. The Honda Life represented Honda's efforts in competing in the kei car segment, offering sedan, delivery van and small pick-up platforms on a shared chassis. The Life StepVan had a novel approach that, while not initially a commercial success, appears to be an influence in vehicles with the front passengers sitting behind the engine, a large cargo area with a flat roof and a liftgate installed in back, and utilizing a transversely installed engine with a front-wheel-drive powertrain. As Honda entered into automobile manufacturing in the late 1960s, where Japanese manufacturers such as Toyota and Nissan had been making cars since before WWII, it appears that Honda instilled a sense of doing things a little differently than its Japanese competitors. Its mainstay products, like the Accord and Civic (with the exception of its USA-market 1993–97 Passport which was part of a vehicle exchange program with Isuzu (part of the Subaru-Isuzu joint venture)), have always employed front-wheel-drive powertrain implementation, which is currently a long-held Honda tradition. Honda also installed new technologies into their products, first as optional equipment, then later standard, like anti lock brakes, speed sensitive power steering, and multi-port fuel injection in the early 1980s. This desire to be the first to try new approaches is evident with the creation of the first Japanese luxury chain Acura, and was also evident with the all aluminum, mid-engined sports car, the Honda NSX, which also introduced variable valve timing technology, Honda calls VTEC. The Civic is a line of compact cars developed and manufactured by Honda. In North America, the Civic is the second-longest continuously running nameplate from a Japanese manufacturer; only its perennial rival, the Toyota Corolla, introduced in 1968, has been in production longer. The Civic, along with the Accord and Prelude, comprised Honda's vehicles sold in North America until the 1990s, when the model lineup was expanded. Having gone through several generational changes, the Civic has become larger and more upmarket, and it currently slots between the Fit and Accord. Honda produces Civic hybrid, a hybrid electric vehicle that competes with the Toyota Prius, and also produces the Insight and CR-Z. In 2008, Honda increased global production to meet demand for small cars and hybrids in the U.S. and emerging markets. The company shuffled U.S. production to keep factories busy and boost car output, while building fewer minivans and sport utility vehicles as light truck sales fell. Its first entrance into the pickup segment, the light duty Ridgeline, won Truck of the Year from Motor Trend magazine in 2006. Also in 2006, the redesigned Civic won Car of the Year from the magazine, giving Honda a rare double win of Motor Trend honors. It is reported that Honda plans to increase hybrid sales in Japan to more than 20% of its total sales in fiscal year 2011, from 14.8% in previous year. Five of United States Environmental Protection Agency's top ten most fuel-efficient cars from 1984 to 2010 comes from Honda, more than any other automakers. The five models are: 2000–2006 Honda Insight (53 mpg‑US or 4.4 L/100 km or 64 mpg‑imp combined), 1986–1987 Honda Civic Coupe HF (46 mpg‑US or 5.1 L/100 km or 55 mpg‑imp combined), 1994–1995 Honda Civic hatchback VX (43 mpg‑US or 5.5 L/100 km or 52 mpg‑imp combined), 2006– Honda Civic Hybrid (42 mpg‑US or 5.6 L/100 km or 50 mpg‑imp combined), and 2010– Honda Insight (41 mpg‑US or 5.7 L/100 km or 49 mpg‑imp combined). The ACEEE has also rated the Civic GX as the greenest car in America for seven consecutive years. Motorcycles For a list of motorcycle products, see List of Honda motorcycles. Honda is the largest motorcycle manufacturer in Japan and has been since it started production in 1955. At its peak in 1982, Honda manufactured almost three million motorcycles annually. By 2006 this figure had reduced to around 550,000 but was still higher than its three domestic competitors. In 2017, India became the largest motorcycle market of Honda.[34] In India, Honda is leading in the scooters segment, with 59 percent market share. During the 1960s, when it was a small manufacturer, Honda broke out of the Japanese motorcycle market and began exporting to the U.S. Working with the advertising agency Grey Advertising, Honda created an innovative marketing campaign, using the slogan "You meet the nicest people on a Honda." In contrast to the prevailing negative stereotypes of motorcyclists in America as tough, antisocial rebels, this campaign suggested that Honda motorcycles were made for the everyman. The campaign was hugely successful; the ads ran for three years, and by the end of 1963 alone, Honda had sold 90,000 motorcycles. Taking Honda's story as an archetype of the smaller manufacturer entering a new market already occupied by highly dominant competitors, the story of their market entry, and their subsequent huge success in the U.S. and around the world, has been the subject of some academic controversy. Competing explanations have been advanced to explain Honda's strategy and the reasons for their success.[36] The first of these explanations was put forward when, in 1975, Boston Consulting Group (BCG) was commissioned by the UK government to write a report explaining why and how the British motorcycle industry had been out-competed by its Japanese competitors. The report concluded that the Japanese firms, including Honda, had sought a very high scale of production (they had made a large number of motorbikes) in order to benefit from economies of scale and learning curve effects. It blamed the decline of the British motorcycle industry on the failure of British managers to invest enough in their businesses to profit from economies of scale and scope. The second explanation was offered in 1984 by Richard Pascale, who had interviewed the Honda executives responsible for the firm's entry into the U.S. market. As opposed to the tightly focused strategy of low cost and high scale that BCG accredited to Honda, Pascale found that their entry into the U.S. market was a story of "miscalculation, serendipity, and organizational learning" – in other words, Honda's success was due to the adaptability and hard work of its staff, rather than any long term strategy. مبل ویلاییFor example, Honda's initial plan on entering the US was to compete in large motorcycles, around 300 cc. Honda's motorcycles in this class suffered performance and reliability problems when ridden the relatively long distances of the US highways.:41–43 When the team found that the scooters they were using to get themselves around their U.S. base of San Francisco attracted positive interest from consumers that they fell back on selling the Super Cub instead. The most recent school of thought on Honda's strategy was put forward by Gary Hamel and C. K. Prahalad in 1989. Creating the concept of core competencies with Honda as an example, they argued that Honda's success was due to its focus on leadership in the technology of internal combustion engines. For example, the high power-to-weight ratio engines Honda produced for its racing bikes provided technology and expertise which was transferable into mopeds. Honda's entry into the U.S. motorcycle market during the 1960s is used as a case study for teaching introductory strategy at business schools worldwide. Power equipment Production started in 1953 with H-type engine (prior to motorcycle).[ Honda power equipment reached record sales in 2007 with 6.4 million units. By 2010 (Fiscal year ended 31 March) this figure had decreased to 4,7 million units. Cumulative production of power products has exceeded 85 million units (as of September 2008). Engines Honda engines powered the entire 33-car starting field of the 2010 Indianapolis 500 and for the fifth consecutive race, there were no engine-related retirements during the running of the Memorial Day Classic. In the 1980s Honda developed the GY6 engine for use in motor scooters. Although no longer manufactured by Honda it is still commonly used in many Chinese, Korean and Taiwanese light vehicles.[ Honda, despite being known as an engine company, has never built a V8 for passenger vehicles. In the late 1990s, the company resisted considerable pressure from its American dealers for a V8 engine (which would have seen use in top-of-the-line Honda SUVs and Acuras), with American Honda reportedly sending one dealer a shipment of V8 beverages to silence them.[48] Honda considered starting V8 production in the mid-2000s for larger Acura sedans, a new version of the high end NSX sports car (which previously used DOHC V6 engines with VTEC to achieve its high power output) and possible future ventures into the American full-size truck and SUV segment for both the Acura and Honda brands, but this was cancelled in late 2008, with Honda citing environmental and worldwide economic conditions as reasons for the termination of this project. Robots ASIMO is the part of Honda's Research & Development robotics program. It is the eleventh in a line of successive builds starting in 1986 with Honda E0 moving through the ensuing Honda E series and the Honda P series. Weighing 54 kilograms and standing 130 centimeters tall, ASIMO resembles a small astronaut wearing a backpack, and can walk on two feet in a manner resembling human locomotion, at up to 6 km/h (3.7 mph). ASIMO is the world's only humanoid robot able to ascend and descend stairs independently. However, human motions such as climbing stairs are difficult to mimic with a machine, which ASIMO has demonstrated by taking two plunges off a staircase. Honda's robot ASIMO (see below) as an R&D project brings together expertise to create a robot that walks, dances and navigates steps. 2010 marks the year Honda has developed a machine capable of reading a user's brainwaves to move ASIMO. The system uses a helmet covered with electroencephalography and near-infrared spectroscopy sensors that monitor electrical brainwaves and cerebral blood flow—signals that alter slightly during the human thought process. The user thinks of one of a limited number of gestures it wants from the robot, which has been fitted with a Brain Machine Interface. Aircraft Main article: Honda HA-420 HondaJet Honda has also pioneered new technology in its HA-420 HondaJet, manufactured by its subsidiary Honda Aircraft Company, which allows new levels of reduced drag, increased aerodynamics and fuel efficiency thus reducing operating costs.[citation needed] Mountain bikes See also: Honda RN-01 G-cross Honda has also built a downhill racing bicycle known as the Honda RN-01. It is not available for sale to the public. The bike has a gearbox, which replaces the standard derailleur found on most bikes. Honda has hired several people to pilot the bike, among them Greg Minnaar. The team is known as Team G Cross Honda.

  24. I have not been more disappointed. My purchase decision was between a Camry and the Accord and apparently Honda was not the way to go. Choosing the Accord because I felt it had more tech features so you can imagine my frustration, disappointment, etc, when the car is in for a rear camera recall, I asked them to check why NONE of the voice commands are working. After two days at the dealership, I was informed "it's a software problem and there is no fix." So I asked, so nothing is going to work on a brand new car and I got the same response plus "nothing can be done until a software fix is done and the more people that have these issues, it will make them start looking into it." Is anyone else having these issues? It's not the phone as I have tried different phones and still nothing.
