Today's Rave: Honda LaneWatch

Today's Rave: Honda LaneWatch
Last week I had the opportunity to drive the all new Honda Accord Coupe. And, while I was curious, I wasn’t quite looking forward to it. After a week, I can honestly say: I’d buy this car. Yeah, I said it. I’d buy a Honda Accord. Of course, it’d have to be the coupe …... Read more »

2012 Honda CR-V proves to be pleasant surprise

2012 Honda CR-V proves to be pleasant surprise
OK. I have a little secret to share. I entered into the test week with the 2012 Honda CR-V expecting to hate it. I’d driven it before in short tests, and the seating position for a petite driver wasn’t the greatest. I thought the interior was drab. And the ride and handling was, well, blah.... Read more »

Coming Soon: Ferris Bueller drives a Honda?

Well, I’m going to borrow a phrase from... Read more »

No middle ground with Honda Crosstour

2010 Honda Crosstour So, I’m driving down the Kennedy on Sunday, when some guy in a black Lincoln in the right lane is honking incessantly. Beep, beep, beep. Beep, beep, beep. I finally look right to see what this idiot is honking at, and apparently it was me. He’s pointing at me and making the... Read more »

Anyone remember this Honda commercial?

I was playing dominoes tonight with my sister’s inlaws, when I remembered this great commercial by Honda. It was out about 3 years ago, and portrays a chain reaction using parts from a car. I don’t think this is the American version (notice the side the steering wheel is on), but it’s still pretty damn... Read more »
