“I bought a Honda Accord,” your neighbor tells you. And you nod and tell him “That’s a good car,” because it is! You can’t really go wrong with an Accord, even if it is a boring, safe, obvious choice. But a modern Accord starts around $22,000; for about the same money, you can own this impossibly sweet 1981 Accord LX…
The Japanese auto industry is crowded. Too crowded, according to Bloomberg’s industry expert, who thinks Japan’s seven automakers will have to merge into three or fewer groups in the next four years to keep up with rising development costs.
There is a reason why sportbikes are long, keep a lot of weight over the front, and have front ends that don’t turn a ton and have beefy steering stabilizers: it’s so you don’t kill yourself. But, if you’re going to kill yourself, doing it on a Ducati Panigale-powered Grom is a great way to do it.
The Honda Fit is kind of an underrated machine. It’s not powerful, but with a manual it’s reasonably fun to drive as well as practical. Now let’s imagine it with 600 horsepower, all-wheel drive, and flying around on dirt and asphalt. Even better!
Racer John McGuinness has won the Isle Of Man TT 23 times, which places him second in all time wins after Joey Dunlop’s 26. That didn’t stop Mugen from fat shaming him, telling him they’d give him a bike only if he lost some weight. His idea? Liposuction.
The 2016 Honda Ridgeline isn’t built to be an off-road monster, but that doesn’t mean a Ridgeline body fitted around a race car isn’t going to look awesome in the fury of the Baja 1000.
The all-new 2016 Honda Civic just hit the dealer lots and already it’s having problems. Late last week Honda announced a stop-sale order on new Civics with the 2.0-liter engine “due to potentially missing or misset piston pin snap rings that may cause engine stall or failure.” That is not good!
The Honda Logo GA3 5-Door D-series hatch (the Fit before the Fit) was in pretty poor shape when I bought it a year and a half ago for $975. Mechanically, it’s great! Passes inspection, has insurance, has a comfortable interior, all that... Jazz (womp womp). However, the outside was trashed, and I’ve even had a few…
Good Morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
A lot of people read Jalopnik. More than 8 million globally this month alone, in fact. They range from everyday car enthusiasts to people who clicked an errant Facebook link about sloths to auto industry professionals. Honda’s lawyers are demanding that we take down a set of comments from an apparent reader in the…
Did you know that some Honda models right now use wiring which is considered a delicacy by rodents in North America? It’s true, according to a recent lawsuit! But lawyers have already come to the rescue.
You’re looking at that .GIF and thinking “wow, I can’t believe you just made me watch a man die.” Not only did motorcyclist Paulo Gonçalves not die here, he was up and racing again before the sand stopped flying.
Few Honda platforms have proven as versatile as the N-series. The N-One specifically has had a “natural” concept. The N Box Slash has a “camper.” Yet, I find neither of these as delightful at the N-Lab N-One “Friendly 2 Seater” Mini Truck concept. It’s useful, it’s clean, and it’s outright adorable.
Mugen is to Honda what your depressingly superior little brother is to you. No matter how awesome and successful you are as the older sibling, no matter how smart or how fast, he somehow shows up later and does it better and with more style. Yeah, the Mugen Civic Type R is pretty much like that.
There are 85 million Honda Super Cubs in existence but, thanks to Deus Japan, only one that looks like this. Meet the Firefly.
Like many of you, I watched with glee as Honda revealed the new Ridgeline earlier this week at the Detroit Auto Show. It’s handsome, I thought. It’s practical. It’s well equipped. It has a nifty little storage area that’s perfect for a) tailgaters and b) human traffickers. As David Tracy said, it’s all the truck most…
We won’t get to drive the new 2017 Honda Ridgeline for a while, but what we can do is give you, our beloved readers, a review of the in-bed trunk. It’s marvelous.
Just outside the North East boundary of Tokyo’s Yamanote Line, is one of the megapolis’ oldest undeveloped urban areas. As one of the last stations on the Tokyo Metro’s Hibiya Line, Kita-Senju holds particular favor for the urban explorer, with many old buildings, local restaurants, and fascinating locals.
Honda introduced the new 2017 Ridgeline today at the Detroit Auto Show, and tons of spectators at the show complained about how it doesn’t look like a truck or isn’t a “real” truck. To them I say: you’re full of crap.
