Honda adds 772,000 Accord, Civic, CR-V, and other models to Takata airbag recall

This morning we have good news and bad news. The good news is, the massive recall of Takata's fatally flawed airbags is continuing. The bad news is, the recall is as complicated as ever, and it's going to take years to complete. (For quick a recap, click here.) Today, Honda--formerly known as...Read More»

Fiat Chrysler, Honda recall nearly 10 million more Takata airbags

Earlier this month, rumors began circulating that up to 40 million airbag inflators installed on U.S. vehicles would be added to the already-massive Takata recall.

2012 Acura TSX: For A Few Dollars More

Quiet confidence. It's one of the many traits that impressed when we tested the 2011 Acura TSX sedan and counterpart 2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon. It also helped that Acura designers dialed down the controversial grille to Dull Roar. For 2012, the mug doesn't shrink further and neither does the...Read More»

What's Your Favorite Non-Minivan Family Car? #YouTellUs

In the 1980s and 1990s, the minivan ruled the school carpool and the pickup lane at daycare centers across this great land. They were new, they were clever, they were American. And then SUVs came along, and they were much cooler, and newer, and even more American. That's when minivan sales started...Read More»

2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon: First Drive

Carmakers [in 1998]: “SUVs are the new minivans, because young parents hate the minivan’s Soccer Mom connotation. Also wagons are a non-starter for precisely the same reason.” Carmaker [Acura, in late 2010]: “The new-new: wagons.” If you’re scratching your head...Read More»

Driven: 2010 Acura TSX V6

Full confession: When I first heard Acura was putting a big, 3.5-liter V-6 into its TSX sport sedan, my response involved a shoulder shrug. That's because the TSX didn't really need it; as we've said in previous drives, with the standard rev-happy 201-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine (especially...Read More»

Frugal Shopper: For Happiness, Don't Sweat The Numbers

Consumer Reports, as part of this week's torrent of announcements from its Annual Auto Issue, named the 2010 Honda Fit and 2010 Toyota Prius the best new-car values of the year. While it so happens we like both of those models very much (and appreciate the Prius' 51-mpg rating), they definitely...Read More»

Audi, Acura Buyers Offered $100 To Test 2010 Suzuki Kizashi

The 2010 Suzuki Kizashi has been a fairly big hit with auto journalists. Our own Bengt Halvorson gave it an impressive 8.2 rating and favorably compared it to the Ford Fusion, the Mazda6, and the Subaru Legacy, but Suzuki has more upmarket aspirations for the new sedan. Specifically, Suzuki wants...Read More»

The past 48 hours have been big for wagons.

Acura TSX Wagon Considered; Benz C-Class Wagon Off The Table

Generational biases are nearly impossible to overcome when it comes to cars and image, and what types of cars are hot or not. At least until recently, much of the Baby Boomer generation, which has held most of the new-car buying power, has been decidedly anti-wagon. My generation, the young side of...Read More»

Honda May Bring Acura TSX Wagon To American Showrooms

Since the advent of customized vans in the late 1970s -- and subsequently SUVs in the early 1990s -- wagons haven't gotten a lot of attention from consumers. True, many companies continue to produce them, but they typically lack the snazzy, front-page appeal of crossovers and other sporty...Read More»
