Proof Positive Of Honda's Performance Pulse

The dead S2000 and general lack of zeal aside, the Accord Coupe V6 is the best example of Honda's continued willingness to build fun cars.

Car and Driver has named its 10Best list that includes some permanent favorites, triumphant returns, and a couple of surprises as well.


Honda is recalling 303,904 Accords in the US because the software calibration can make their side airbags deploy too easily. The company has 19 allegations of injuries from the issue.


Honda is recalling about 6,800 examples of the 2014-2015 Accord hybrid because a problem with a voltage sensor can put them into fail-safe EV mode. The issue can eventually cause them to stall.


NHTSA is investigating 384,000 units of the 2008 Honda Accord after 19 reports of the airbag control module failing, including one injury.


The Bestseller Specializes For Broader Appeal

A rehashed Accord brings fresh styling, the latest smartphone tech, and sensor-based safety systems for all. We take a brief drive to check it out.


Toyota might start pursuing turbocharging in a big way. The shift could include a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder to replace the V6 engine option in the Camry.


The ninth-generation Honda Accord gets a thorough refresh for 2016. The sedan packs upgraded styling and a ton of new tech, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

These are the best-selling cars and trucks in the United States from June 2015. Trucks were the hottest sellers, led by the redesigned 2015 Ford F-150.


Honda is expanding its passenger's side Takata airbag inflator recall to affect an additional 1.39 million examples of the 2001-2005 Civic and the 2003-2007 Accord. In total, 2.3 million of the company's cars need the repairs just on that side.


BMW, FCA, Ford, Honda, Mitsubishi All Affected

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is starting to announce the expanded Takata airbag inflator recalls. FCA has over 5 million vehicles affected worldwide, and BMW has over 420,000 in the US. Honda's expansion includes 350,000 more Civics and Accords.


Honda Performance Development fitted this Accord Coupe with 400 horsepower and a series of enhancements to prepare it for service as Indy's new safety car.

The quirky Honda Crosstour is officially dead. Honda is discontinuing the model with the 2016 model year.


Honda is recalling over 100,000 more vehicles to replace faulty driver's side airbag inflators supplied by Takata. The models include the 2008 Pilot, 2004 Civic and 2001 Accord.

The Toyota Prius narrowly lost its sales crown to the Honda Accord in California in 2014. Both models saw their sales numbers increase in the state for the year, but the Honda had the bigger boost.


Honda is setting aside about $425 million to pay for Takata airbag inflator recall-related costs. The change drops the company's profit forecast to about $6.1 billion for the fiscal year. Also, there's a possibility that another death might be linked to the faulty parts.


Honda may move to one of Takata's competitors in what could be a devastating turn for the Japanese supplier.


This 1998 Honda Accord custom dually is so insane that it's almost hard not to love. Beyond just the crazy rear end, the sedan features an exhaust that rises toward the heavens and enough lights to turn the night into day. The massive mirrors on each side should make it easy to see the shocked expressions of onlookers as you drive by. This is glorious automotive madness.
