Congratulations toÂ HondaÂ for capturing three very prestigious awards at this yearâ€™s AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Awards.Â Â The Vehicle Satisfaction Awards are based on the results of over 75,000 surveys completed by U.S. drivers of cars and light trucks through the first quarter of 2012. Considering that the surveys are completed solely on owner input, the VSAâ€™s are deemed a very reliable and accurate measurement ofÂ customer satisfaction. This yearâ€™s VSA winners are the 2012Â Honda CR-V, the 2012Â Honda Odyssey, and the 2012Â Honda Pilot.
The elegant 2012 Honda CR-V is style and grace at its best. Powered by an in-line 4-cylinder engine that cranks out 185-horsepower and 163 pound-feet of torque, the CR-V has a 5-speedÂ automatic transmissionÂ that allows you to coast smoothly on the road.
TheÂ 2012 Honda OdysseyÂ delivers in every category from an abundance of cargo room to excellent fuel efficiency. The 2012 Honda Odyssey has aÂ V6 engineÂ that emits 248-horsepower along with a 4-speed automatic transmission. With anÂ EPAÂ estimate of 18/27 miles per gallon (city/hwy) this car offers everything you could possible want in a minivan!
The Honda Pilot is equipped with an endless list of features and accessories that any new driver would find fascinating. An Active noise cancellation system,Â hill start assistÂ system, and aÂ variable cylinder managementÂ system come with the Pilot just to name a few.
We are extremely proud of Honda for continuing to show why the Honda brand is what it is today.
Q.Â Iâ€™m new to Honda and I donâ€™t know how long I should leave my vehicle plugged in for. Iâ€™ve heard that I should use a timer to have it turn on early in the morning before I leave for work. Wouldnâ€™t plugging it in overnight be better, make it warmer inside my car?
A.Â This question comes up often, usually when the weather turns colder. (Weâ€™ve been lucky this year, but now that winter has settled inâ€¦) The engine block heater is designed to do just what its title suggests: heat the engine block (a bit). The block heater element is located in the coolant passages surrounding your engine block assembly. When supplied with electricity, it produces heat from the element. This will transfer to the coolant and slightly warm it up (anywhere from 5 to 15 degrees Celsius). The warming of the coolant, and thus the block assembly, makes engine starting easier, and shortens engine warm up time a bit. It does NOT warm the interior of the car, nor does it generate enough heat to have warm air flowing from the heat vents right away. Its only job is to help cold starting, really. Once the engine block heats up to a certain point, determined by the outside air temperature and any air motion in the area, the heat generated becomes lost to the surrounding air. Thatâ€™s why plugging in your vehicle overnight is wasteful; the heat generated is just lost to the cold air surrounding the engine. Not the best use of electricity. Once the block heater has been operating for about 40-55 minutes, any heat generated becomes wasted. That means plugging in your vehicle 30-50 minutes before you plan to start it is the best use of the energy and heat. And this is where the timer comes in; you donâ€™t have to go outside to plug in your car in the early morning cold if you set a timer and plug in the night before.
