Are Connected Cars the Future?

There has been a push in the Senate to open up the band of wireless communication airwaves that automakers have had exclusive access to.  The legislation is designed to improve road safety by allowing vehicles to communicate with other vehicles on the road.  The NHTSA says that the technology could eliminate some 80 percent of traffic accidents.  But groups among the auto industry are concerned that by opening the connected car spectrum, it could create interference and put safety improvements at risk.  More study is needed before connected cars can coexist on the same wireless spectrum, according to auto industry groups.

Expanding access of the wireless communication airwaves to improve road safety is a growing debate, though a mandate for vehicle to vehicle communications may be in the near future.

Honda is Awarded Again

Honda has done it again- Automotive News has reported that Honda topped the rankings of mainstream brands, by new vehicle buyers for quality and value.  The study was done by ALG, and is based upon data that shows perception is a better predictor to forecast vehicle quality in the market. Other studies measure vehicles based upon quality in everything from long-term durability to fit and finish. "ALG’s metric isolates how consumers think about the quality of each brand.  The gap between the top tier and the rest of the field has narrowed...and buyers are clearly getting the message that overall quality levels have much more parity than ever before."

Not only has Honda received multiple awards and accolades from the NHTSA, IIHS,, and KBB, they also continue to maintain and gain a satisfied customer base due to Honda's quality.
