    • CR-V sets a new September record with sales of 22,268, up 13.6 percent

    “The all-new 2013 Accord hit dealerships in mid-September and our dealers are already seeing a significant increase in customer traffic surrounding the new model,” said John Mendel, American Honda executive vice president of sales. “Combined with the strength of key models such as Civic, CR-V and Odyssey, Honda is once again firing on all cylinders as we enter fall.”

    “Acura’s core models of TL and MDX continue as a driving force for the brand,” said Jeff Conrad, vice president of Acura sales. “Now, we have new products such as RDX setting monthly sales records and the ILX continuing to carve out a foothold as the gateway to our lineup.”

    The daily selling rate (DSR) is calculated with 25 days for September 2012 and 25 days for September 2011. Year-to-date, the DSR is calculated with 230 days for 2012 and 229 days for 2011. All other percentages in release are unadjusted; see table for adjusted DSR figures.

    so this is how they can pay for the cracked engine block in my buddy's 07 or 08 whatever Civic. "Mr. customer of course we will extend that warranty to 8 years and fix it for free please don't tell anyone, see look at how awesome Honda is please buy from us again one last request please just don't go telling everyone our motors and trannies and such do tend to blow up ok"

    Acura sedan sales are about as lackluster as their sedan models are distinctive and compelling.

    They have a lot of mechanical issues, believe it or not.

    Looking to perhaps trade the Miata in next year, and looking at a GTI rather than a Civic SI, as the GTI would be more reliable.

    When a VW is thought of as more reliable than a Honda...houston we got a problem!

    • It seems like you can't wipe your behind these days without getting a survey sent to you. Then, when you get around to responding to it, it has stale dated.
    • Damn, sorry about that. I've been job hunting this whole year, fairly passively. But I was recently offered a team lead position, but I have to pass a few tests, so I'm studying for those.  I've had a bunch of phone interviews and a few actual interviews (Anheuser-Busch, Boeing, and Worldwide Technology). Now that I've been offered the Team Lead position, I've stopped looking. I mostly just feel like I'm more valuable and "should" be making more money. With them offering this, I definitely feel like they know I can handle it and want me around. 
    • WOW, that SUV could so easily be a Buick too with the headlights / daytime trim lights.
    • Lately, there has been a trend in the large crossover segment to replace naturally aspirated V6es with engines containing two fewer cylinders and some form of boost, either turbo or hybrid, sometimes both. The Infiniti QX60 is the latest model to join the trend. For 2025, Infiniti is switching the QX60 to its 2.0-liter Variable Compression turbo-charged engine, also found in the QX50 and QX55. The engine produces 268 horsepower and 286 lb-ft of torque. This represents a drop of 27 horsepower but an increase of 16 lb-ft of torque over a broader engine speed range. The QX60 retains its 9-speed automatic and gains a transmission fluid cooler, bringing the tow rating to 6,000 lbs for every trim. Like the V6 before it, the 2-liter VC-Turbo runs on premium fuel.  The new powertrain slightly increases fuel efficiency to 22 city / 28 highway / 24 combined over last year's model specs of 20 city / 25 highway / 22 combined for front-wheel drive models. Compared to front-wheel drive, all-wheel drive models lose 1 mpg highway. The most direct competitor to the Infiniti QX60, the Buick Enclave, also moved to a 4-cylinder turbo for 2025, and we expect others in this segment to follow suit. View full article
    • They have lockable boxes you can mount the charger in.  I agree that there's no rush to get the charger, but if you're already doing construction work inside, run at least any conduit or wiring needed now and leave it disconnected.    I found out about 30 minutes ago that I didn't get the job.  Back to the drawing board, I guess.  I hate job hunting.
