We're thrilled to have you with us this morning. A-pillar width is down by 20 percent and they're moved them further back relative to the driver, whcich further improves visibility. The recall covers more than 1.5 million cars worldwide.
The report quoted statistics from the annual Hot Wheels report issued by the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), a non-profit membership organization created by the insurance industry to address insurance-related crimes. The body itself has a two-inch longer wheelbase but hardly changes in length.
The new Accord comes as sedan sales, particularly in the midsize segment, have fallen over the past few years as consumers increasingly shift into crossovers, SUVs and trucks. Mondrian Investment Partners LTD now owns 1,704,988 shares of the company's stock worth $51,150,000 after buying an additional 430,158 shares during the last quarter.
Pricing hasn't been announced, but the new Accord will be available in a number of trim levels.
Just how popular is the Honda Accord? The Accord is produced at Honda's plant in Marysville, Ohio. Audio systems range from the four-speaker, 160-watt system on the base LX, eight speakers and 180 watts on Sport and EX, and 10 speakers pumping out 450 watts on the EX-L and Touring models.
It's an all-new Accord that speaks to your head and your heart in equal measure. There are three knobs for the climate control as well, with the temperature controls highlighted by one of our new favorite features: turn the knob to a warmer temperature or cooler temperature, and the LED backlight behind the knob turns redder or bluer, respectively. The system also means the Accord can get over-the-air updates, similar to the Tesla Model S and Model X. The Accord 4-door's length also is lessened a bit.
Honda says it will notify Accord owners impacted by the recall before July 31.

As a result, substances like road salt can enter the sensor and cause it to short, potentially leading to fires. This engine is equipped a new 10-speed automatic transmission (a first for front-wheel drive sedans, Honda says) or a 6-speed manual on Sport models.
Year to date, Accord sales have slumped nearly 60% with just 109 total sales and the Honda model claiming just 2.0% of the total mid-size passenger car market. The model will be taking cues from the new generation Civic and is expected to be bolder than its current form. That gives it more 2.5 cubic feet more of interior room and one added cubic foot of trunk space. Available telematics include geofencing, remote diagnostics, and stolen-vehicle tracking, similar to GM's OnStar. These are tied to a Two-Mode Driving system, with Normal and Sport modes, that lets you dial up the Accord's reflexes when the mood is right.
