1.2M Honda Accords recalled because battery sensors may catch fire

1.2M Honda Accords recalled because battery sensors may catch fire”

Meanwhile, tomorrow the company will unveil its newest generation Accord in a year when U.S. sales of passenger cars and midsize sedans are down sharply. The issue stems from sensors on the battery's negative terminal not being properly sealed from moisture, according to AP.

Now, the new 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid-with an updated version of the two-motor hybrid system in an entirely redesigned body-is coming home again. Enthusiasts out there have been asking us to 'save the manuals' and with cars like the Civic Hatch, Si, Type R and now this new Accord, we're doing just that!

The lineup has two all-new direct-injection turbocharged engines. Accurately predicted by Ireson's well-tuned butt senses, the new 2.0-liter makes 252 hp and a healthy 273 lb-ft of torque (at 6,500 rpm and from 1,500-4,000 rpm, respectively). It is tuned for low-end torque and does not require premium fuel. New for 2018, the Accord gets its first adaptive damper system to adjust shock absorber damping force every 1/500 of a second. O Shaughnessy Asset Management LLC raised its position in Honda Motor Company by 174.1% in the fourth quarter.

What you're going to see in just a moment is the most dramatically styled, most sophisticated and fun-to-drive Accord we've ever made. Honda claims backseat legroom has been increased by 2.5 inches, a boon for taller folks. The new design will be based on the new Honda Civic and although a lot of people were happy with the Civic design, there were also talk that because of the Civic was given a size upgrade, the Accord would also receive a size upgrade. The driver's seat is now an inch lower than before and rear passengers enjoy an extra 2.5 inches of leg room. It retains the chrome wing grille bookmarked by LED headlights and foglights.

Underneath the skin is a more rigid and lightweight body with our highest ever application of ultra-high strength steel, plus a new aluminum-intensive chassis with available Adaptive Dampers.

Four cases of engine compartment fires due to the battery sensor-related problem have been reported to Honda. All will be Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible.

GKN plc has an expected growth rate of around 5.3% in the long term.

That effort begins the 10th-generation Accord's new styling and revised proportions. Additional goodies include wireless phone charging, automatic Bluetooth pairing, 4G LTE with a Wi-Fi hotspot, and over-the-air automatic software updates.

Honda says it can run at more than 40 percent thermal efficiency, which it calls the highest for any mass-produced Honda engine.

Honda's versatile 1.5 litre turbo-petrol engine, as found in models like the Civic, HR-V and new-gen CR-V will also be available. The 2.0-liter model has four trims available: Sport, EX-L, EX-L Navi, and Touring.

Production of the entire Accord range will take place at a plant in Marysville, Ohio.

The Accord Hybrid is back, although Honda won't release the full specs until closer to that its launch.
