New Civic Type R Specs, Photos Released
Jun 02, 2015 - 12:23 PM - by

Honda has released a fresh set of photos along with new details on the 2015 Civic Type R.

The 2015 Civic Type R signals a new era of Honda performance cars according to the brand and much has been done to separate this hot hatch from its rather pedestrian cousin. Honda has confirmed that the new Type R will be sold in the United States, though it may not happen until 2017. For now, weíll have to make due with this new info released by Honda UK.

Under the hood lives a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 305 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. The red line sits at 7,000 RPM, while Hondaís legendary Variable Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC) system is also put to work, making the engine as efficient as possible while also keeping a high output of power. Direct injection atomizes the fuel at high pressure (20MPa), allowing the fuel flow to increase by 85 percent and fuel pressure to jump by 45 percent compared to a conventional Honda engine.

All of this adds up to a 0 to 62 mph run in 5.7 seconds, a top speed of 167 mph and a curb weight of 3037 lbs. To get the most from the car, Honda has included a new +R button, which modifies throttle response, the adaptive dampers, torque mapping and the interior info screen to allow the driver to extract maximum performance from the Civic Type R.

A six-speed manual, which uses the same 40mm shift stroke as the 2002 NSX-R, is the only transmission available with the new Type R. It sends power on to a helical limited slip differential, helping to improve turning performance. Without the limited slip, Honda says the car loses three seconds around the Nurburgring. A unique new exhaust is also fitted to this car, helping it to roar thanks to the removal of the front silencer.

Connecting the Type R to the road are new 19-inch alloy wheels, wrapped with 235/35 R19 tires from Continental that were designed specially for this car.

When it comes to style, the new Type R is one of the most aggressive looking Hondaís to ever wear the badge. Five paint options are available: Championship White, Crystal Black (pearlescent), Polished Metal (metallic), Brilliant Sporty Blue (metallic) and Milano Red.

A new GT pack is now available, which brings along signature red highlights, front and rear parking sensors, automatic headlights, automatic wipers and adaptive cruise control. The package also

Top 10 Honda Civics of All Time
May 28, 2015 - 8:08 AM - by

The tenth-generation Honda Civic is just around the corner and it canít come soon enough.

Many feel the current Civic has lost its edge and the new car hopes to change all that. With new-found style, substance and the addition of turbocharged engines, the next generation Civic is poised to do big things for Honda.

Thereís also a good chance that the new Type R will be the best Civic ever made. With a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 305 HP, this front-wheel drive hatchback is claimed to have lapped the NŁrburgring racetrack in just seven minutes and 50 seconds.

But there have been plenty of other great Civics since its birth more than four decades ago.

2016 Honda Pilot First Drive - Video
May 20, 2015 - 4:31 AM - by

By Colum Wood

The Honda Pilot has been transformed.

From a utilitarian box on wheels to a sleek near-luxury SUV the style shift is almost shocking in its departure from the past.

Pairing that dramatic redesign with a long list of upgrades, does this latest model have what it takes to put the Pilot at the helm of the 3-row crossover segment?

Bu-Bye Box

While we should keep you waiting with a line like ďyouíll never guess what happens next,Ē the short answer is: yes.

Over the past few years utility vehicles like the boxy Ford Escape and the square Nissan Pathfinder have traded in their chiseled looks for a more curvy appearance. Now the Pilot is following that trend, and for good reason. Or should we say reasons.

First and foremost is the truckís perception.

Hondaís market research surrounding the previous generation Pilot indicates that the two main rejection reasons for that model were styling and fuel economy. According to their research, people saw the boxy shape and assumed that it was bad on gas. This was true even when the Pilot had best-in-class fuel economy and continued to haunt it as the truck grew older and gave up that title to more modern rivals.

Of course, if youíre in the opposing camp and you did like the look of the old Pilot you can always blame Obama.

How is this Obamaís fault? Well, itís called government mandated corporate average fuel economy standards and for Honda to hit its targets, it needs sleek aerodynamic shapes in order to eek our every last mile per gallon. Thankfully, you, the consumer, get to reap the reward.

Gone is the big boxy grille. It also looks longer and lower, because it actually is. The Pilot shaves an inch off the top and adds three inches in length overall, with roughly two inches between the wheels and an inch of extra rear overhang.

But Honda has done so much more to make the new Pilot a fuel economy leader.

Why Wonít My Car Start?
May 05, 2015 - 11:13 AM - by

Without a doubt, every owner dreads the moment when their car wonít start. What should you do? Who should you call? Can you fix it yourself? Hereís a list with ten common reasons why cars donít start up and what you can do about it.

'The first step is to define the no start' said Joe Spadafora, certified instructor at Universal Technical Instituteís Exton, Pennsylvania campus. Spadafora spent the majority of his career in working in the service department of several dealerships and receiving factory training from GM. Heís certified as a Master Technician and certified by Chrysler as a Dodge Viper technician . He also holds certifications from Subaru, Suzuki, Toyota, Lexus and Scion as well, so if thereís something wrong with your car, chances are heís seen it before.

To diagnose the reason your car isnít starting, you need to pay attention to happening when you turn the key. 'Does the engine crank but not actually start or, when you turn the key, does literally nothing happen?' he said. 'In a customerís eyes, the following two options are the same because both create a scenario that results in the vehicleís failure to run.'

While the two situations might seem similar, they have very different meanings that are important to a mechanic and can signal different problems calling for a variety of solutions.

'Itís important to note that a vehicle is an extremely complicated machine and can exhibit similar symptoms for a variety of reasons,' he said. 'That is why itís important to first look at the type of Ďno startí and then at the list of conditions that could be causing it in the first place.'
