Honda Recalls 1.15 Million Accords Due to Possible Engine Fires

Importantly, all models and trim levels will include all the Honda Sensing safety technologies as standard equipment.

"The biggest challenge for the new Accord is that it's a mid-size car", said Michelle Krebs, executive analyst for Autotrader. There is also a 7.0-inch display in front of the driver.

These changes have practical benefits inside.

Vehicle theft is a severe economic hardship for its victims-especially if a vehicle is uninsured. Cargo capacity increases by 0.9 cu ft to 16.7 cu ft.

Passenger hip, shoulder and headroom is improved by moving seats slightly inward, the automaker says. Full-LED headlights are also on the menu. The company did not supply projected fuel economy for any of the models, but promised the new hybrid version will be more fuel efficient than the current one. Higher R&D expenses and currency translation costs are also concerns for the company. "There have been no reported injuries related to these incidents". The driver's seat has 12-way adjustment, and the front seats can be heated and cooled. "The new version likely will help Honda maintain share, but in a shrinking segment".

The 1.5-liter Accord will be available in six trims: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, EX-L Navi, and Touring. And with over-the-air system updates, all Accord customers can upgrade to the latest software via Wi-Fi.

While Honda Accords and Civics dominate this annual list, they are older, pre-"smart key" production models. The base four is 1.5 liters and it puts out 192 horsepower with a continuously variable transmission. Eventually, all owners of vehicles that have not yet received the final repair will receive a second mailed notification with instructions for a new visit to the dealer for the final repair. Accurately predicted by Ireson's well-tuned butt senses, the new 2.0-liter makes 252 hp and a healthy 273 lb-ft of torque (at 6,500 rpm and from 1,500-4,000 rpm, respectively).

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.

This engine is fitted with forged connecting rods, a forged crankshaft, improved cylinder head and block water pathways, and sodium-filled exhaust valves.

Pricing will be announced closer to the on-sale date.

Honda will also offer the 2018 Accord with its twin-engine hybrid powertrain. Expansive visibility and a sporty seating position were two other design directives for the model, which borrows heavily in style from Honda's Civic compact sedan. Other factories are located in Alabama, Indiana and the Carolinas.

Of particular note is the adaptive damper system standard on every 2018 Honda Accord, which constantly responds to changing road conditions.

As with most recent sedan redesigns, the Accord's wheelbase and overall width grows while height is lowered. It seems, though, that Honda is meeting the wants and needs of those of us who still appreciate the inherently better driving dynamics of a sedan versus a crossover.
