My Honda Accord Experience

In my driveway is a car that’s almost as old as I am. A 19-year-old Honda Accord automatic that’s still in possession of a healthy amount of poke and ABS brakes. And the air-con still works, which is excellent given the recent muggy weather.

So why would I want to change my car? When I visited friends in Glasgow, Honda was the manufacturer that got me there in comfort and without a headache from a whining engine as I beetled up the M6. But one can’t help wanting to move with the times, and whilst I’ve had years of impeccable service from the Accord I was starting to look at trendier cars with rather. There’s no mistaking a car that’s getting on in years, and whilst I was still more than happy with the performance.

But there was one thing that caught my eye every time we drove out for the day. A certain company that seemed to encourage me to entertain thoughts of defection from the trusty little Accord.

It was a Honda dealership, and with a forecourt full of sleek, shining and above all modern models, it wasn’t long before I was forced to come up with an excuse for taking off for a day on my own. I already knew that in a Honda, Glasgow traffic was nothing more than a slight inconvenience rather than the infuriating hindrance that it became in other models. I had received admirable service from my aging Accord, but the time had come to make a choice. I was in the ideal place to make a decision about the future of my driving career.

Reader, I chose a new Honda Accord. There are more bells and whistles in this car than I know what to do with, and every passenger thus far has been unable to refrain from saying. Needless to say, my friends were a little confused when I rocked up after a day of alleged shopping in a brand new car, but after a quick spin, they understood my reasons behind purchase!

But what of the old Accord, I hear you cry?  Surely I couldn’t be so cold-hearted as to abandon it for a younger model.  I ignored the very compelling scrappage offer and went through some interesting logistical adventures to ensure that my old car could come home with me. After all, if something isn’t broken, why fix it? Now I can still get my fix of vintage Honda excellence without feeling envy every time I pass a curvy new model.

Honda Pilot: The Family Beast

This vehicle has enough room to seat eight persons plus it offers a ton of storage space. The shape of the Honda Pilot is square on the front end and some reviewers have noted that it looks and stance resembles that of a truck.

The engine isn’t as powerful as that of some of its competitor but it’s more than enough for everyday usage. The engine contains six cylinders and outputs 250 hp and 253 lb-feet of torque. Gas mileage stands at 17 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the freeway. It’s equipped with Variable Cylinder Management, which enables the vehicle to run on a lesser number of cylinders and as a result, it’s quite good on gas. The roof is made of strong aluminum and insulated with a dense foam material similar to what roofing contractors install on customer’s roofs:

If you want to purchase additional options, it’s suggested that you opt for the EX-L or the touring line, since certain packages are not available for the base models. There is an optional navigation system in place which can be commanded by voice and Bluetooth compatibility is also available. Cargo space is extremely good at eighteen cubic feet. Storage space can be increased further to eighty-seven cubic feet once you fold down the second and third row of seats.

Hill Start Assist has been installed which deters the auto from rolling back or forward when on a hill or incline.

That’s not all, because the HVAC controls have also been changed. The layout remains quite simple and so it is not surprising to see the spanking new infotainment system placed above the buttons that control the climate conditions.

If you love Honda cars, then you must be eagerly anticipating the release of the 2016 Honda Pilot. Though Honda has not provided any information about the exact date of release, spy shots along with concept drawings show us quite a bit about this car.

The exterior of the Pilot was not the most pleasing aspect of earlier models. However, in the 2016 model, some key changes have been made which help to make this car a much more pleasing one. The basic template has been changed and though the vehicle still looks quite boxy the new lines and curves help to make this vehicle look quite handsome. The new headlights include LEDs, which remain lit during the daytime, and there are LEDs in the taillights as well. Overall, the headlights are very sleek and pleasing to the eye. The grille and the angular bumpers in the front are also quite attractive. The wheelbase has been widened and there is an increase in the other dimensions as well. The fact that the body is made from aluminum helps to lower the weight of this SUV and its aerodynamics is also very good.

Inside the new Pilot 2016, there are seats for seven people. In previous models, it was not all that easy to get in and out of the SUV but in the 2016 version, this problem seems to have been taken care of. The interiors also boast of cruise control and latest upholstery as well as a nice infotainment system.

Which engine will power new 2016 HONDA PILOT?

A 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces as many as 219 horsepowers and 267 pound-feet of torque powers the new Pilot. This mid-size SUV also makes use of VTEC and Earth Dreams technologies, which help to make the car conserve fuel and still remain eco-friendly. It is expected that the Pilot will provide 25 miles per gallon fuel economy on the highway and its lightweight and improved drivetrain will make this SUV very attractive to most buyers.
