Honda’s Commitment to the Environment

Knowing the true intention of the businesses we frequent is always a good thing, and transparency is key. We like to know if we’re purchasing something from a company with a solid set of core values, especially when they align with our own morals. If a particular business shows a connection with the changing and growing world around them, it makes it easier for us to want to be a part of it all. If a company takes care of their employees and the surrounding community, it’s a heartwarming feeling to be able to support their efforts. (more…)

The Malibu let the Accord in and the Rest is History

The mid 1970s was a time of transition for the American automobile market. For years the cars built by our domestic brands were large and imposing, giving us vehicles that offered massive size and weight but did very little to adhere to the new emissions and fuel regulations. In fact, one exercise in the failure of the domestic brands to change and adapt was found in the fact that Honda was able to transform a Chevrolet Impala and make it pass the new emissions standards that GM claimed were impossible to meet.

Amazing Performance from Honda Last Year

The 2016 model year was a stellar year for the automotive industry with more sales of new vehicles than any other year in the history of the industry. With these impressive sales over the past twelve months, the expectation is that most automakers would have experienced exceptional sales in the segments they compete in over that time.

2017 Will bring us a New Honda Ridgeline

The Ridgeline came in like gangbusters in a market that was saturated with full size and midsized trucks that offers excellent power but not as much of an attractive appearance as the Ridgeline. This truck which appeared on the scenes ten years ago to give us a truck that was a bit different than the rest. The Ridgeline made its way as the original unibody truck while the rest all had bed behind cab setups that nearly appeared to be completely separate and only attached by the frame underneath. (more…)

The Honda Crosstour is Gone

Even Honda lays an egg every now and then. The Crosstour was one of them. The much-maligned crossover had it bad from the start and never really recovered both in reviews as well as sales. It was uninspiring, a stark contrast to things that the Japanese automaker has done in the last couple of years. We won't really miss it.
