Jamie Robinson RideApart

“You don’t have to spend a million bucks to fulfill your dreams. I bought a bike for $300, got it running and entered it in a race I’d always dreampt about.

Bonneville is an epic thing that brings out all kinds of speed contraptions and it was an honor to ride an old 1986 Honda VFR750 in the Run-Whatcha-Brung class and pretend to be like my childhood heroes.

If I can do it, anyone can.” — Jamie Robinson

Idiot Does Burnout, hits truck and flees scene…

Street Racing Accident

The stupidity of street racers never ceases to amaze me. Take this wannabe showoff for instance. The original goal here was to do a nice little burnout for the crowd, flip a u-turn and then speed off. However our driver failed to notice the box truck that was apparently making a legal crossing right in front of him, so… he hit him, dead on, and then fled the scene of the accident. Nice right?

2012 Honda CR-V EX-L: RideLust Review

Posted in Car Reviews, Featured, Honda, Import Review, RideLust Review by Kurt Ernst | May 29th, 2012 | Leave a Reply |

2012 Honda CR-V EX-L

Thumbs Up: Quieter than the outgoing model, and less thirsty.

Thumbs Down: Suspension may be too soft now.

Buy This Car If: You want a five-passenger crossover that will likely deliver decades of reliable service.

The Honda CR-V (for Compact Recreational Vehicle, or Comfortable Runabout Vehicle, depending upon which story you believe) has been a perennial best-seller for Honda since hitting the market in 1995. It’s really no secret why, either: the CR-V delivers a reasonable amount of interior room, decent fuel economy and solid value for the money. Like anything with a Honda badge on the front, it’s likely to deliver decades of trouble-free driving, and the availability of all-wheel-drive gives snow belt state buyers additional peace of mind.

So I’m curious – when was it that human beings became so lazy that walking failed to be an option for getting from place to place?

Honda CRV Owner Flirts with Death at The Nürburgring

Honda CRV Crash

If your a car enthusiast and a trip to the Nürburgring isn’t on your automotive bucket list, then there is something severely wrong with you. As far as racetracks go the “Ring” is the King and as such it will punish you hard if you don’t respect it. The driver of a Honda CRV found this out first hand when they bit off a little more than they could chew during a lap. In fact they’re lucky to be alive after enduring such a horrendous crash. You see the problem with the Nürburgring is this; for just $34.00 anyone can take their ride out for a lap. This is regardless if you’re qualified or not. Therefore it should come as no surprise that accidents happen all the time. Luckily for this guy though he walked limped away with his body intact. His car… not so much.

Ferris 2012 Honda CRV

26 years ago a movie directed by John Hughes changed the way kids around the world cut school. It was titled “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and starred Matthew Broderick as the world’s greatest middle finger to high school faculty everywhere. Almost three decades have gone by and thanks to Honda we now find out that not only has Ferris grown up, but he drives a new Honda CR-V. Now sure it’s a far cry from Cameron’s Dad’s Ferrari, and while some may say that Ferris has sold out, let me be the first to say that we’re just happy he’s back.

Civic Wagon Gives Corvette A Run…

Honda VS Corvette

There’s just something about getting your ass handed to you by a Honda Civic wagon that has to make you feel about 2-inches tall. I mean by now it’s no surprise that a well tuned import has the ability to put the hurt on just about anything, but that doesn’t mean we have to like it. This Corvette owner for instance must have been somewhat shocked when this cloud blue wagon blitzed him off the line, then made him really work to stay with him. Personally, I think it’s hilarious, but hey, I’m not the guy driving the Corvette.

2012 Honda Civic Si Sedan: RideLust Review

2012 Honda Civic Si Sedan

Thumbs Up: Slightly quicker than the car it replaces.

Thumbs Down: Missing the magic that made the previous car great.

Buy This Car If: You want a sporty commuter with bulletproof reliability.

To understand the history of the 2012 Honda Civic line, you need to take a step back in time to 2009. In what most would agree was the bottom of the current worldwide financial collapse, Honda was smack dab in the middle of the new Civic’s redesign. As the outlook for the worldwide automotive industry grew darker by the day, Honda’s president, Takanobu Ito, was forced to decide between continuing the Civic’s planned redesign or cutting it short. Ito opted for the financially sensible option, and chose to bring the car to market with few significant changes and quite a bit of cost-cutting. The result is a new generation of Civic that simply hasn’t lived up to the legacy of former Civics models. Read More…

It wasn’t that many years ago that automaker Honda could do no wrong. It was the darling of the Consumer Reports staff, but it was also loved by tuners for building affordable but entertaining cars. And then something went wrong. Product quality began to slip, younger buyers avoided Honda dealerships in droves and even Consumer Reports began to say bad things about Honda’s latest crop of cars.
