Honda recalls more than 1M vehicles over engine fires

Get used to the design, because you'll start seeing these everywhere soon, and riding in them once your favorite Lyft or Uber driver gets a hold of them.

The Japanese automaker noted that four vehicles have reported fires resulting from the defect, but no injuries.

The lineup has two all-new direct-injection turbocharged engines. The dealership sells about 500 Accords and Civics, combined, per month and Accord sales are up nearly 13 percent so far this year, he said.

To replace the V6, Honda plucked the Civic Type R 2.0-liter and retuned it for what we assume is greater driveability. The base engine is a 1.5-liter unit that's rated at 192, both horsepower and lb-ft of torque. It is tuned for low-end torque and does not require premium fuel.

A six-speed manual will be available in the 'Sports' model.


The hybrid uses a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated Atkinson-cycle engine and has electric motors that are the first to use magnets containing no heavy rare earth metals. In practical terms, that means the new car weighs less, has a slightly longer wheelbase, slightly wider body and lower seating position than its predecessor.

The car has a new MacPherson strut front suspension for better ride and handling; it also has a new multilink rear suspension. But with our new styling direction and a Sport trim with a 6-speed manual for both turbocharged engines, we've injected a lot of coupe goodness that will make this new Accord sedan... a car coupe intenders will want to take a hard look at. The stock's 50-day moving average price is $27.87 and its 200 day moving average price is $29.61.

The latter combination is the first time a 10-speed has been fitted in a front-wheel-drive passenger car. Rear seats have been pushed back for an extra 2.5 inches of legroom.

The Accord and Camry are pillars of their manufacturers' U.S. businesses, each selling well over 300,000 vehicles a year.

Vehicle theft is a severe economic hardship for its victims-especially if a vehicle is uninsured. It retains the chrome wing grille bookmarked by LED headlights and foglights. Other factories are located in Alabama, Indiana and the Carolinas.

New seat padding is said to be "high-accuracy" and with variable firmness for comfort and support.

"We are redefining the Honda Accord for a new generation of buyers", said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president of Honda's American automobile division. v Honda said its 10th-generation Accord is designed to give a sporty, athletic appearance. The Accord has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and a number of apps.

Honda says the Accord has 29% ultra-high-strength steel content, the most of any mass-produced Honda car, making for a light and rigid body structure. Options include a six-inch head-up display, in-car WiFi, and wireless device charging. A 7.0-inch screen features in the instrument cluster and is joined by an 8.0 touchscreen in the center stack for infotainment.

Available on some models will be more advanced safety programs, such as blind-spot detection, cross-traffic monitor and more. Faulty ones will be replaced.
