Has Ernie Boch Jr. let the cat out of the bag? Autoblog reader Jason tipped us that he heard a fleeting mention of the 2008 Honda Accord
being Motor Trend's Car Of The Year during a commercial for a seasonal promotion at
the national sales champ dealership
. Could it be that Jason's sharp ear has uncovered Motor Trend's announcement traditionally made in November? Boch Honda's website
mirrors the statement that Jason heard, as well, offering a "newly redesigned 2008 Honda Accord
LX, Motor Trend's Car Of The Year" for a $198/month lease
. Motor Trend, on the other hand, remains mum so far on its pick. The press always blows the automaker's embargoes, how meta is it that a dealer
appears to have deflated the COTY balloon? We'll be giving Ernie a ring on Monday, stay tuned.
Thanks for the tip, Jason!
