The all-new 2018 Honda Accord and Odyssey have been recognized on the list of “10 Best Family Cars 2018” from Parents magazine and Edmunds.com. The winners will appear in this month’s issue of Parents magazine.
To determine winners of its Best Family Cars awards, Parents magazine and Edmunds chose the winners from among 300 vehicles by considering safety ratings, car seat installation and other family-friendly features, as well as overall vehicle attributes such as driving dynamics, comfort, price and fuel efficiency.

The 5th-generation Odyssey was completely redesigned for the 2018 model year raising the bar for performance, cabin quietness, family-friendly interior space, comfort and connectivity to even better meet the needs of changing American families, such as CabinWatch, the industry’s first in-vehicle rear-seat camera, and the available Honda Sensing suite of active safety and driver assist systems.
The reimagined 2018 Accord is the 10th-generation of Honda’s iconic midsized sedan, boasting premium styling focusing on an aggressive stance and proportion, a spacious interior, torque-laden turbo engines in both 1.5- and 2.0-liter capacities, agile driving dynamics and rich feature content that includes standard Honda Sensing on all models.

Warning: Keep These Common Items Out if Your Car in the Summer
A woman came out to her car after work and discovered that an everyday object she’d been keeping there had shot like a rocket through her windshield. The video above explains why you don’t want to leave aerosol cans in hot cars!
Top 3 Car Washing Mistakes
This video shares some simple solutions to help you avoid the car-washing mistakes that can ruin a vehicle’s paint.
Here’s a quick summary:
1. Sponges used for bathing are designed to rub or scrub away dead skin. If you use these on your car, your paint may be scratched as abrasive grit is pushed against the surface. Instead, use car-wash mitts that are designed to pick up the dirt and carry the debris within the fibers until it is released into a bucket of clean water.
2. Avoid using dish soap to wash your car, because it’s harmful to the paint. Soaps have specific purposes. For instance, you wouldn’t use hand soap to shampoo your hair. Soaps for washing your car are formulated to remove the dirt with as much lubrication as possible in order to leave the paint’s clear coat or wax unharmed.
3. Avoid using the same towel on both the wheels and the paint, since that will quickly damage the clear coat and require a polish or even a compound to remove. Instead, use separate towels or tools for the different parts of the car.

How to Operate a Manual Transmission
Honda offers manual transmissions across an array of models and trims, which is why we produced a video to not only help you learn how to drive a manual-equipped vehicle, but also explain why you’re doing it.
Not only do cars with manual transmissions costs less, but they are great vehicles for a teen drivers – if you need to use your right hand for shifting it’s hard to be talking on your phone. 🙂
