Honda First to Have Rearview Camera Recognized by NHTSA

One of the really nice things about the latest generation of 2014 Honda Accord vehicles, which were released in the 2013 model year, was that they included a rearview camera on all models, including the base version of the popular midsize sedan.  Obviously, rearview cameras are growing increasingly ubiquitous by the year, which is a good thing for consumers. As one of the first to include it as a standard option, it makes sense that…

Honda Odyssey Named Among U.S. News’ Top Family Vehicles

Starting a family is an undeniably exciting thing, not only because babies are adorable and wonderful in a myriad of ways, but because it very often creates an excuse for us to go out and buy ourselves a new "family" vehicle.

Why It’s Smart to Buy Certified Pre-Owned at Planet Honda

A lot of consumers separate car-buying into two totally different types of experiences: the first is visiting a used car lot, where they know the prices are reasonable but you may not find the vehicle you're exactly looking for. The second experience involves making a trip to a dealership, which typically specializes in new cars that, while reliable, are more expensive because they're new.

Honda Accord Proves Most Popular Model of 2013

Whether you're buying a new or used Honda Accord, the fact of the matter is that you're going to end up with a very excellent automobile.  Honda vehicles are good-looking, efficient, safe, well-equipped, and spacious, among other things, and all those are great reasons for consumers to buy the cars.

The challenge, of course, for every automaker is to get people to buy those cars.  In the case of the Honda Accord, however…

Four Honda Vehicles Win KBB Family-Friendly Awards

Children can?t buy cars, obviously, but just because they don?t have the kind of expendable income to purchase a new vehicle doesn?t mean they aren?t important to the people actually designing the automobiles.  The best family-friendly cars, SUVs and minivans in the industry are so revered because everything in their design was done with the entire family in mind.  Honda automakers, in particular, employs engineers who pride themselves on coming up…

Honda Shows Off in J.D. Power Dependability Study

For years, the industry average score on the J.D. Power & Associates Dependability Study has gone up, a testament to how hard engineers have worked to make vehicles more reliable than they?ve ever been. Honda has continued to be a brand that consistently scores well, and while other brands had some difficulties in the recent 2014 study, Honda didn't. The study looked at the reliability of three-year-old 2011 model year vehicles. There were…

2014 Honda Odyssey, Accord Making Kiplinger’s “Best Value” List

Consumers often talk about getting a "good value" when they make a purchase, but as we all know, in today's economic landscape, it can be more challenging than ever to find those values.  For people looking to  buy a new vehicle, there's at least a bit of a cheat sheet for this, as Kiplinger's Personal Finance puts out their Best Value Awards every year.  If you want to know which vehicles in…

2014 Honda Civic, Accord Among IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Designees

We've said this about a thousand times, but we think it bears repeating: safety features really matter to modern consumers, and as crash-testers like the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety continue to ramp up the level of difficulty in scoring how well cars, trucks, and SUVs smash into walls, the number of vehicles that manage to score top marks inevitably go down while engineers try to keep up with the changes.

A couple of…

Honda Wins 3 of 6 Auto Advertising Awards

An automaker could make the best automobiles in the world, but if they didn?t have effective advertising nobody would ever know just how excellent those vehicles are.  For this reason, every major corporation in the world has an entire department whose job is only to decide upon and execute effective methods of advertisement, and while some of these methods prove more successful than others, the most important thing to remember is that innovation and…

2015 Honda Fit Features Affordable Top-Shelf Tech

If you recall, a few weeks ago we informed our regular readers that the 2015 Honda Fit would be debuting at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this month, and sure enough, that's exactly what we got last week at the Honda display area of the event.

So far, what we've seen of the new Fit has been very impressive, particularly in regards to the amount of newfangled technologies that have…
