The second-generation Insight, which debuted in 2010, was more practical but thoroughly appliance-like, and after receiving little love it was gone in four years.

Scottsdale, AZ – It has been an unfortunate fall from environmental leadership for Honda in the past few years.

Honda phased out and replaced their first-generation Pilot for model-year 2009 with a new model that packed updated styling, technology, feature content and an even bigger body. Longer, wider and taller than the original machine, the new-for-2009 eight-passenger Pilot received a welcome make
The Honda Fit’s unique take on compact car styling, functionality and packaging hits you square in the face before you take your seat within its cheerful little body. The doors opens ultra-wide, and a massive aperture presents itself with room galore around the seat, which sits low in the cabin, with room to spare in every direction around it. The
