As you have noticed over the least 10 years, Honda design has gone straight down the tubes. Once the embodiment of elegant design in an affordable package, Hondas have entered the arena of absurdity by producing ugly, boring automobiles that look like they have been designed by dumb, stoned dolts who dropped out of engineering school to play GTA 3 all day.
The 2017 Honda Accord, an incredibly bland automobile with touches that only the black wheel-loving , lowbrow, knuckledraggers would love, has finally entered its terminal state of decline.
But what’s this? The trustees of automotive design have given the Honda Accord the North American Car of the Year Award.
Yes, you read that right. This ugly duckling with NINJA ACTION wheels beat out the Toyota Camry, its prime rival. Forget the fact that the Camry is a far superior design in almost every way.
I used to be a huge fan of Honda design. The old Accords and Civics were absolutely beautiful, and a blast to drive, but in the last 10 years or so, Honda has changed the aesthetics of their cars in a horrible direction.
Every vehicle they make now is heinous looking. Every last one.
But they’re reliable! Nope, that’s a myth based on another time. Hondas were the pinnacle of reliability for decades, but something happened, and now they’re actually one of the least reliable cars you can buy. This gentleman did the legwork, and his numbers are spot on. Hondas have become Chryslers. And yes, it breaks my heart.
I hope Honda can turn this around, because sales are falling at precipitous rates, and should those Honda owners and buyers who still believe in Honda Claus ever learn the truth, they’ll become another footnote in automotive history.
