No, not Honda. After Toyota stepped down (and down) from the Golden Child throne, we thought we could turn our lonely eyes to Honda. But no. Honda is recalling 35,000 2007 and 2008 Civic hybrids to fix an electrical problem.
The problem is that these cars’ electrical components may fail causing the headlights to turn off or the engine to stall.
Toyota, apparently resented the challenge to its status as Recall King, and immediately issued a recall for Toyota sport utility vehicles and trucks because of faulty tire pressure monitoring systems. This Toyota recall includes some versions of the 2008 through 2011 Toyota F-J Cruiser, Land Cruiser, Sequoia, Tacoma and Tundra.
I’m kidding about most of this, particularly the part about Honda. I think Honda makes a great car.
