  1. William Maley Staff Writer - CheersandGears.com December 12, 2012 Honda has issued a recall for 871,000 vehicles due to an issue where a vehicle may roll away after the key has been removed form the ignition. 92% of the effected vehicles (about 807,000) are in the U.S. The Honda vehicles in question are, 2003 - 2005 Acura MDX: 230,000 vehicles 2003 - 2004 Honda Odyssey: 318,000 vehicles 2003 - 2004 Honda Pilot: 259,000 Honda Vehicles Outside The U.S.: 64,000 Honda in a statement says the problem pertains to the ignition interlock which can become damaged or worn. This can allow the key to be removed from the ignition when the car is started or if the transmission has been shifted into any gear. "If the transmission is not in park and the parking brake is not set, the vehicle could roll away and a crash could occur," Honda said in a statement. NHTSA opened a investigation into the issue after receiving 43 complaints about Honda and Acura vehicles rolling away. Some of the complaints say their vehicles hit parked cars, fences, trees, mailboxes and in some cases, caused bodily harm.

  2. By William Maley Staff Writer - CheersandGears.com March 26, 2013 Honda has unveiled the refreshed 2014 Odyssey before the start of the New York Auto Show. The big news about the Odyssey is the introduction of an onboard vacuum system. Standard on the the Odyssey Touring Elite trim, the HondaVac is comprised of an electric motor, replaceable filter, canister bag, and vacuum attachments that are located in the rear cargo bulkhead. The system, developed jointly with ShopVac, can also run up to eight minutes when the Odyssey is turned off. Aside from the new vacuum, the 2014 Odyssey has some minor changes. Outside, there is a new aluminum hood and fenders to pair with the revised front fascia and darker headlights. Honda has also made structural changes to make the vehicle safer in case of an accident. Stepping inside, there is a revised center stack, new trim pieces, push-button start, and HondaLink's cloud-based infotainment options. The 2014 Odyssey arrives at dealers this summer.

Press Release is on Page 2 2014 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite® Makes World Debut in New York with Host of Safety Upgrades and Innovations Including HondaVAC™, the First In-Car Vacuum The segment's benchmark minivan cleans up with bevy of safety improvements, sleek new styling and intuitive, family-friendly technologies NEW YORK The 2014 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite® is making its debut at the 2013 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS), setting the new 'ultimate family vehicle' standard. Thoroughly refreshed for 2014, the Odyssey Touring Elite® provides core safety upgrades, sharpened exterior styling and a revised interior with a host of new features and technologies designed to make the segment's benchmark minivan even better. Demonstrating trademark Honda innovation, the 2014 Odyssey Touring Elite® will also mark the debut of HondaVAC™, the first-ever in-vehicle vacuum system. Available exclusively in the Odyssey Touring Elite® trim, the all-new HondaVAC™ system is part of a thorough refresh of the Honda Odyssey for the 2014 model year, adding to its already class-leading fuel economy ratings and unmatched safety ratings. The 2014 Odyssey will go on sale at Honda dealerships nationwide this summer. "The Odyssey is already the leader in its segment, and for 2014, Honda has made the modern family hauler even better," said Michael Accavitti, vice president of marketing operations at American Honda. "Honda is once again showcasing its reputation for innovation with HondaVAC, and its ability to provide true value to our customers." The 2014 Honda Odyssey brings an array of improvements to Honda's minivan, including structural upgrades expected to help it achieve top marks in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's (IIHS) stringent new small-overlap frontal crash test, which is part of IIHS's new TOP SAFETY PICK+ protocol. The refreshed Odyssey Touring Elite® will also come equipped with advanced Honda driver assistive and visibility technologies such as an Expanded View Driver's Mirror, Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW). The 2014 Odyssey features sleeker, more sophisticated exterior styling with a new, more deeply sculpted aluminum hood, new aluminum front fenders, a new bolder twin-bar grille, and a revised lower front fascia with integrated chrome-trimmed fog lights. New two-tone mirror housings, darker-finish projector-beam headlight housings, LED taillight bars and new badging add to the 2014 Odyssey's premium look. Inside the 2014 Odyssey, new finishes brighten the cabin and an all-new center stack showcases a host of new features. Additional standard technology on the Odyssey Touring Elite® brings new levels of ease and connectivity to owners, including keyless Smart Entry with Push Button Start, HD Radio®, an SMS text messaging function, and HondaLink™ featuring Aha™ Mobile interface. HondaLink™, which debuted on the 2013 Honda Accord, enables Odyssey owners to connect quickly and easily to a wealth of cloud-based content. The free HondaLink™ smartphone app uses the owner's favorite online content to create live, personalized radio stations, allowing drivers to put away their phones and hear updates and news feeds from Facebook and Twitter, as well as check out restaurant reviews or find the closest coffee shop. Standard on the 2014 Odyssey Touring Elite®, the all-new HondaVAC™ was developed in conjunction with industry-leader Shop-Vac®, and is composed of a powerful vacuum, replaceable filter and canister bag, with nozzle accessories neatly integrated into a dedicated space on the driver's side bulkhead of the rear cargo area. HondaVAC™ makes quick cleanups a snap no matter the location, offering powerful cleaning suction and an integrated hose and cleaning attachments that reach into every corner of the Odyssey's cabin. The HondaVAC™ system's powerful electric motor never needs an outlet or recharging, can operate continuously when the engine is running, and will continue to operate for up to eight minutes when the vehicle is turned off for additional family duties. Already one of the most lauded vehicles in its segment, the current 2013 Odyssey has earned IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK and NHTSA 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score crash safety ratings. The Honda Odyssey is an AutoPacific Ideal Vehicle Award winner, an ALG Residual Value award winner, recipient of the Best Family Cars of 2012 designation from both Parents Magazine/Edmunds.com and Kelley Blue Book's kbb.com, and a Best Cars for Families award winner from U.S. News and World Report. The Odyssey represents Honda's robust product development capabilities in North America with its design, engineering and assembly all taking place in the U.S., using domestically and globally sourced parts. Currently, 95 percent of all Hondas sold in the U.S., are built in North America.

  5. American Honda Sets New February Record; New Civic and Honda Division Lead with Second Consecutive Monthly Records · Honda Division sets new February benchmark on sales of 106,212 vehicles · All-new 2016 Honda Civic sets a new monthly record for the second month in a row with sales up 31.7 percent; with all-new Civic Coupe set to go on sale mid-March · Acura ILX, the brand’s entry point and most youthful model, was up 56.4 percent TORRANCE, Calif., March 1, 2016 – American Honda Motor Co., Inc. today reported record February sales of 118,985 Honda and Acura vehicles, an increase of 12.8 percent. Honda Division set a new February record with 106,212 units sold, up 14.9 percent; Honda car sales reached 57,267 while record February truck sales totaled 48,945 for the month. Acura sales totaled 12,773 with sedan sales of 4,683 and trucks reaching 8,090 units in February. Honda Fresh off of a record January and led by record sales of the all-new 2016 Civic Sedan and the CR-V along with a strong performance by the Accord, the Honda brand set a new February sales mark. · Civic, relying only on sales of the Sedan, was the brand’s best-selling model for the month, setting a new February record, with sales up 31.7 percent to 27,707 units; the All-new Civic Coupe will accelerate that momentum when it goes on sale in mid-March. · Also bucking the light truck trend, Accord was up 19.3 percent on sales of 25,785 units. · CR-V, America’s best-selling SUV, was up 13.2 percent on record February sales of 25,250 vehicles. · Odyssey had a double digit gain, up 11.4 percent with 8,994 units sold for the month. · In high demand but short supply, Pilot sold 9,572 units, a strong month, but a 24.2 percent decrease compared to February 2015, when high inventories and aggressive sell-down efforts of the prior generation model led to near-record sales. "Led by the all-new Civic, Honda cars are defying industry trends, even as our light truck models are red hot this winter,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division. “With more versions of the Civic yet to go on sale and an all-new Ridgeline on the way, Honda is primed for an incredibly strong start to the year.” Acura While overall sales were down slightly for February, strong sales of the ILX, the brand’s gateway model; the launch of the Acura NSX online vehicle configurator in late February and a refreshed MDX set to debut at the New York Auto Show this month portend a strong year as the Acura brand approaches its 30th anniversary in late March. · ILX followed up on a strong January result, rising an impressive 56.4 percent on sales of 1,500 units in February. · MDX, challenged by low inventory levels, was the brand’s best-selling model for the month with sales of 4,292 units in February, down 5.7 percent. “As we approach the 30th anniversary of the Acura brand in March and the launch of the NSX this spring, it’s encouraging to see the same kind of excitement associated with the early days of the brand,” said Jon Ikeda, vice president and general manager of the Acura division. “With a strong gateway model attracting new customers to the brand in the ILX, and an updated MDX about to debut at the New York auto show, it’s not simply cliché to say that the best is yet to come.” American Honda Vehicle Sales for February 2016 Month-to-Date Year-to-Date February 2016 February 2015 DSR** % Change MoM % Change February 2016 February 2015 DSR** % Change YoY % Change American Honda Total 118,985 105,466 12.8% 12.8% 219,482 207,650 10.1% 5.7% Total Car Sales 61,950 53,269 16.3% 16.3% 116,332 103,284 17.3% 12.6% Total Truck Sales 57,035 52,197 9.3% 9.3% 103,150 104,366 3.0% -1.2% Honda Total Car Sales 57,267 48,692 17.6% 17.6% 108,079 94,623 19.0% 14.2% Honda Total Truck Sales 48,945 43,782 11.8% 11.8% 88,380 88,053 4.6% 0.4% Acura Total Car Sales 4,683 4,577 2.3% 2.3% 8,253 8,661 -0.7% -4.7% Acura Total Truck Sales 8,090 8,415 -3.9% -3.9% 14,770 16,313 -5.7% -9.5% Total Domestic Car Sales 58,489 52,687 11.0% 11.0% 109,939 102,064 12.2% 7.7% Domestic Car Honda Division 53,909 48,287 11.6% 11.6% 101,887 93,762 13.2% 8.7% Acura Division 4,580 4,400 4.1% 4.1% 8,052 8,302 1.0% -3.0% Total Domestic Truck Sales 57,035 52,197 9.3% 9.3% 103,150 104,366 3.0% -1.2% Domestic Truck Honda Division 48,945 43,782 11.8% 11.8% 88,380 88,053 4.6% 0.4% Acura Division 8,090 8,415 -3.9% -3.9% 14,770 16,313 -5.7% -9.5% Total Import Car Sales 3,461 582 494.7% 494.7% 6,393 1,220 445.9% 424.0% Import Car Honda Division 3,358 405 729.1% 729.1% 6,192 861 649.1% 619.2% Acura Division 103 177 -41.8% -41.8% 201 359 -41.7% -44.0% Total Import Truck Sales 0 0 0.0% 0.0% 0 0 0.0% 0.0% Import Truck Honda Division 0 0 0.0% 0.0% 0 0 0.0% 0.0% Acura Division 0 0 0.0% 0.0% 0 0 0.0% 0.0% MODEL BREAKOUT BY DIVISION Honda Division Total 106,212 92,474 14.9% 14.9% 196,459 182,676 12.0% 7.5% Honda Car * ACCORD 25,785 21,616 19.3% 19.3% 46,550 42,627 13.8% 9.2% * CIVIC 27,707 21,038 31.7% 31.7% 54,448 39,737 42.7% 37.0% CR-Z 128 175 -26.9% -26.9% 320 371 -10.2% -13.7% * FIT 3,647 5,652 -35.5% -35.5% 6,742 11,454 -38.7% -41.1% INSIGHT 0 211 -100.0% -100.0% 19 434 -95.4% -95.6% Car Truck CROSSTOUR 190 643 -70.5% -70.5% 456 1,304 -63.6% -65.0% * CR-V 25,250 22,298 13.2% 13.2% 44,458 45,509 1.8% -2.3% HR-V 4,940 0 0.0% 0.0% 9,117 0 0.0% 0.0% ODYSSEY 8,994 8,076 11.4% 11.4% 16,215 15,946 5.9% 1.7% PILOT 9,572 12,629 -24.2% -24.2% 18,133 24,944 -24.3% -27.3% RIDGELINE -1 136 -100.7% -100.7% 1 350 -99.7% -99.7% Truck Honda Car *** Memo: Accord FHEV 68 832 -91.8% -91.8% 139 1,637 -91.2% -91.5% Memo: Accord PHEV 0 12 -100.0% -100.0% 0 40 -100.0% -100.0% Memo: Civic Hybrid 143 358 -60.1% -60.1% 304 678 -53.3% -55.2% Acura Division Total 12,773 12,992 -1.7% -1.7% 23,023 24,974 -4.0% -7.8% Acura Car ILX 1,500 959 56.4% 56.4% 2,733 1,951 45.9% 40.1% RLX / RL 103 173 -40.5% -40.5% 201 349 -40.0% -42.4% TL 0 22 -100.0% -100.0% 0 40 -100.0% -100.0% TLX 3,080 3,419 -9.9% -9.9% 5,319 6,311 -12.2% -15.7% TSX 0 4 -100.0% -100.0% 0 10 -100.0% -100.0% Car Truck MDX 4,292 4,553 -5.7% -5.7% 7,868 8,934 -8.3% -11.9% RDX 3,798 3,862 -1.7% -1.7% 6,902 7,379 -2.6% -6.5% Truck Acura Car *** Memo: ILX Hybrid 0 5 -100.0% -100.0% 0 8 -100.0% -100.0% Memo: RLX Hybrid 12 21 -42.9% -42.9% 30 35 -10.7% -14.3% Memo: TSX Wagon 0 1 -100.0% -100.0% 0 1 -100.0% -100.0% Selling Days 24 24 48 50 **** Hybrid 351 1,614 -78.3% -78.3% 812 3,203 -73.6% -74.6% * Honda and Acura vehicles are made of domestic & global sourced parts ** Daily Selling Rate *** Memo line items are included in the respective model total **** Hybrid includes FHEV, PHEV, CR-Z, Civic Hybrid, Insight, ILX Hybrid, RLX Hybrid and RLX Sport Hybrid
