McLaren and Honda rekindle a winning combination
Nov 28, 2014 - 9:36 PM - by Honda Forum
Filed under: Motorsports, Videos, Honda, Racing, McLaren



With the 2014 Formula One World Championship now drawn to a close, all eyes are fixed on next season. And for both McLaren and Honda, that means the dawn of a new era - or hopefully, the return to one bygone.

After twenty years running Mercedes engines, McLaren is switching back to Honda next season, rekindling the most successful partnership the once-dominant team has ever had. Immediately after swapping to Honda power in 1988 - and with ... [Read More]

Honda builds 300-millionth motorcycle, it's a Gold Wing
Nov 27, 2014 - 12:58 AM - by Honda Forum
Filed under: Classics, Honda, Motorcycle



Honda has been selling motorcycles in Japan since 1949. And it's been selling bikes to US customers since John Travolta had a paper route. Combine all those years, huge markets and great products, and apparently the number you come up with is 300,000,000. Wowza.

Starting with the iconic 98-cc Dream Type-D you see above, Honda announced that it has built its 300-millionth motorcycle this month. The company currently sells all manner of powersports goodness, of course - ATVs, side-by-sides and two-wheelers - at 32 facilities in 22 countries.

Honda motorcycles took our country by storm in the 1960s, taking the title as the best-selling bike brand in the world during that decade, largely on the back of the Honda 50 or "Super Cub" bike. Honda's success in the '60s also helped to justify the establishment its first manufacturing footprint in North America, in Marysville, OH in 1979.

Honda underreported 1,729 claims of injuries or deaths since 2003
Nov 25, 2014 - 5:14 PM - by Honda Forum
Filed under: Government/Legal, Safety, Honda


Among these underreported cases were eight Takata airbag inflator ruptures not submitted.

Following an independent audit of its safety reporting procedures, Honda has found massive holes in its methodology and practices that resulted in 1,729 claims of injuries or deaths going unreported to federal authorities dating back to July 2003. The cases should have been submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as part of its quarterly Early Warning Reports (EWRs) under the TREAD Act, but they fell through the cracks for a variety of reasons.

Honda blames the underreporting on three factors: data entry errors, computer... [Read More]

Will states start to prevent you from registering cars that have pending recalls?
Nov 22, 2014 - 11:29 PM - by Honda Forum
Filed under: Government/Legal, Recalls, Safety, Honda, Ownership



The impact of 2014 - henceforth known as Year of the Recalls - will have long-ranging consequences on the auto industry. One of the biggest changes, though, might not be in the way manufacturers inform the government of pending recalls or in the way Uncle Sam punishes automakers that violate its rules, but in the ability to sell cars with pending recalls. And strangely enough, the charge is being led by an automaker.

Honda Executive Vice President Rick Schostek, pictured above, argued... [Read More]

2016 Honda HR-V officially finds its fit in Los Angeles
Nov 19, 2014 - 9:21 PM - by Honda Forum
Filed under: LA Auto Show, Crossover, Honda



Honda's extended tease for the 2016 HR-V compact crossover is finally over. The CUV debuted in Japan late, last year, and the company has trotted various versions to shows around the world since then. The time has finally come for all of the details about the US version to be revealed at this year's Los Angeles Auto Show.

Honda has been keeping the HR-V's powertrain a closely guarded secret - until now. All of them get a 1.8-liter four-cylinder that makes 138 horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque with the choice of either a six-speed manual or CVT. Either front- or all-wheel drive is available, but the six-speed... [Read More]

Honda is replacing airbags nationwide, not just in humid states
Nov 19, 2014 - 1:38 AM - by Honda Forum
Filed under: Recalls, Safety, Honda



With a Senate hearing scheduled for November 20, the investigations into the exploding airbag inflators from automotive supplier Takata are just beginning. Honda is among the automakers most affected by the problem with over five million vehicles potentially in need of repair in the US, according to the last estimate from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. But the actual number being fixed could be even higher because the company is also working with worried owners nationwide.

According to the Associated Press, ... [Read More]

Honda HR-V gets early reveal
Nov 18, 2014 - 5:18 AM - by Honda Forum
Filed under: LA Auto Show, Budget, Crossover, Honda



If the Honda HR-V feels awfully familiar to you by now, you're not alone. We've seen it debut in Japanese form (dubbed "Vezel"), caught a prototype in Paris, and Honda first showed us the US-spec version in press-photo form all the way back at the New York Auto Show in April. We're finally going to get all the details on Honda's new subcompact crossover this week as part of the ... [Read More]

Filed under: Motorsports, Honda, McLaren



Of all the changes in store for next year's Formula One World Championship, few are as hotly anticipated as Honda's return as an engine supplier to the McLaren team. And with the current season drawing to a close, Honda has tweeted two images of the current car running its new engine.

The MP4-29H pictured here is based closely on the MP4-29 which Jenson Button and Kevin Magnussen have been driving all season, starting strong with a... [Read More]
