The latest results from Consumer Reportsshould be a wake-up call for Honda executives . When I asked David Champion about the quality and reliability of the latest models tested by Consumer Reports, Champion said bluntly, “They’re still reliable, but the re-designs are disappointing. Their fit, finish, steering, and handling all need work.”
If that isn’t bad enough for Honda, consider his analysis of the interior of some Honda models compared to the interiors of Big Three models. Champion tells me, “It’s a complete reversal from 10 or 15 years ago. Honda used to have the superior interior while Ford and GM had uninspiring and cheaper looking interiors. Now it has flipped.”
The annual ranking of auto reliability by Consumer Reports is a benchmark annual report.
