Honda Recalls 1.2 Million Accords Over Potential For Battery Fires

Honda Recalls 1.2 Million Accords Over Potential For Battery Fires

Midsize sedans, after all, have often been described as "boring", and while the article is nearly four years old as of this writing, Jalopnik did primarily include sedans when it listed the 10 most boring cars consumers could buy.

Honda did not disclose information on fuel economy when it announced the 2018 Accord on Friday.

Honda introduced a redesigned battery sensor in June 2016.

One reason why midsize sedans have generally been tagged as "boring" is the lack of a stick shift option in most models.

The new 2018 Accord also includes active and passive safety systems such as Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control, Anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brake Distribution, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), advanced front airbags, driver and front-passenger side airbags and new driver and front-passenger knee airbags.

Brendan Rodgers fights Leigh Griffiths' corner over 'strange' booking
Second-half goals from Maxwel Cornet, Myziane Maolida and Amine Gouiri's double gave the Europa League semi-finalists the win. We are obviously very disappointed that a small number of people chose not to respect the club's wishes.

Coming to the design front, the new Accord looks sharper and agiler as compared to the current generation.

While the 1.5 ltr motor will come matted to CVT unit, the 2.0 ltr motor will have the world's first front-engine, front-wheel-drive 10-speed automatic transmission.

Initial reviews of the 2018 Honda Accord have mostly been positive.

Honda - along with its luxury auto brand Acura - is already the worst-hit automaker from the industry's biggest recall in USA history, with millions of its vehicles affected by exploding Takata airbags. It goes on sale in the autumn, and the 2018 Accord is more stylish, more premium and sportier than this illustrious nameplate has ever been in the past.

For the first time in many years, the new Accord will only be offered with 4-cylinder engines. This engine variant produces a maximum power of 192 HP and 192 lb-ft. of torque.

Honda is hitting its USA customers with yet another recall - this time over flaming batteries.
