Honda is doing something right. They must be destroyed..................
Honda was making more of their cars in the US than Chevy or Ford or Chrysler for some time
Aint that sad? A FOREIGN company hires more Americans to build their cars than American companies. And they make a better car in most cases, too.
The CRV with a small, high output diesel .... heaven at 55mpg!
I’ll never buy a Honda again. Nothing but a rattle trap and trouble with trans.
LOL, was it a 20 year old beater Civic?
From her profile, her husband work(s)(ed) for GM.
I borrowed a friends Civic for about a week and loved it.
They are making Civics in Greenburg, Indiana that run on Propane.
OK. But that's really a pretty cheap trick, as any motor that burns gasoline can be jiggered to run on propane ... or LNG. Check out a warehouse forklift. Been done for dog's years.
Burns clean, and reduces a lot of maintenance like oil changes, but no big whoop. Old Hat. Ho-Hum. Best bet for energy independence with available tech? High output, low emission Diesel cars. Got'em all over Europe. VW TDI here. But the Greens as ably represented by the former British Subject in the White House, hate Diesels. Their nannies were frightened by a smoky-starting 190 D in 1954.
Greenies hate diesels.
Greenies hate gasoline.
Greenies hate propane.
Greenies hate LNG.
Greenies hate coal.
Greenies hate nuclear.
Greenies hate wind energy (kills birds, it’s noisy and ugly).
Greenies hate solar energy (takes up too much area in the desert!).
Greenies want us to live in the seventh century.
Islamists want us to live in the seventh century.
No, it was 1 year old when trouble started and all I heard from the dealer were excuses.
