Honda Accord is all new for 2018

As noted by Reuters, America's "big three" automakers - Ford, General Motors, and Fiat Chrysler - have focused mainly on SUVs, crossovers, and pickup trucks, as consumers gravitate more and more toward these vehicles.

Some consumers were anxious that the same issue would affect the new HOnda Accord but according to Honda, the battery sensor has been redesigned back in June 2016 which means the newer model should not have the same issue.

Lastly, the new generation Honda Accord will come with two driving modes - Normal and Sport, with the latter tightening the power steering, transmission calibration, throttle map and more. It also comes with Civil Type-R. Honda is changing this on the new Accord, as two of the new car's versions will include manual transmission as optional, with automatic shift still remaining standard.

As the automakers ratchet up the hype for their 2018 models, collision repairers are hearing a familiar refrain: more high-strength steel and a dizzying array of advanced driver-assistance systems. In the new model, the vehicle gets new engine options that include 1.5 ltr and 2.0 ltr turbocharged petrol mills. While not as stylish as the compact Civic, the 2018 Accord's styling "pushes the envelope" for midsize sedans with its more distinctive, yet balanced look.

One of the new engine is a 1.5L 16V unit with dual VTC packs 192 hp and 185 lb-ft torque.

The Accord's base engine is a 1.5-liter four-cylinder that's both turbocharged and direct-injected. But, because of the large number of parts required for the recall, Honda said battery sensors in good condition will be given a temporary fix involving a moisture preventing adhesive.
