    Just did a search in goggle to see Honda's web metadata tags and look what I found.

    No it is something of a pity, but then the Advertising Standards Agency would have to uphold complaints from drivers of Germanic cars when they claim they are still superior to the big H. Just because they paid a higher price, for a less reliable car doesn't make them any better

    ^^ Must have been a weird buying experience if Hermann Goering or Albert Speer were on the sales staff of the dealers you visited...

    In somewhat related news across the pond: Auto Sales Slowdown? Honda CR-V Sets All-Time Monthly Sales Record In July 2016

    Despite a 1-percent drop in Honda car sales, a 13-percent decline in Odyssey minivan sales, and an overall industry trend that slowed year-over-year growth to less than 1 percent, Honda reported 4,232 more CR-V sales in July 2016 than in July 2015.


    The launch of the tenth-generation Civic last winter has resulted in an 18-percent leap forward in U.S. Civic volume, at a time when passenger car volume has tumbled 8 percent across the industry. Despite a 7-percent drop in July, Honda Accord sales are up 6 percent this year. Sales of the discontinued Honda Crosstour and CR-Z are in the toilet. The Honda Fit’s 18-percent drop, valued at 7,149 lost sales, is more than cancelled out by a 23,787-unit uptick in sales of the Fit-based Honda HR-V. In the final year of the current-generation Odyssey’s life-cycle, Honda’s minivan on track to sell more than 120,000 copies for a fifth consecutive year. Short supply constrained Pilot sales through much of early 2016, a 13-percent rise over the last two months suggests the pain may now be mitigated. The launch of the Ridgeline took full effect in July.

    ^^ If only we had an open minded buying public in this country rather than the German marque obsessed buyers that we DO have...:Whiteflag:
