THE HISTORY OF HONDA
The automotive manufacturing company was established on September 24, 1948. Honda has two founding fathers Sichorio Honda and Takeo Fujisawa. Originally, Honda didn’t make cars. They made motorcycles. The first motorcycle that was made by Honda was the “Dream D”. This motorcycle was released in 1949, within the second year of Honda being established. The Dream D had a 2-stroke and a 98cc motor.
Honda became a part of the racing community in 1968. Because their motorcycles were fast, they made good racing motorcycles. Honda motorcycles can reach speeds up to 186 miles per hour. The Honda CBR 1100XX Blackbird reached 190 miles per hour! This is the fastest that a Honda motorcycle has ever gotten to!
People like Honda motorcycles for their dependability and reliability. Like Honda cars, their motorcycles are very reliable. It has to do with how Honda engines are built! Honda engines tend to last longer, generate more speed, and have an overall better driving experience!
Honda began making engines for power tools in 1953. Honda makes power tools in Swepsonville, North Carolina. Honda makes over 100 million power tools. Some of Honda’s power tools include the Miimo Robotic Lawn Mower, Generator (EU18i), lawn mowers, water pumps, and more. Honda still makes great power tools today!
After making Motorcycles for a while, Honda began to release cars. The first car that Honda made was the T360 in 1963. After that, Honda begins to make sports cars. The first sports car they made was the S500.
In 1986 Honda launched the Acura brand with hopes of gaining in the luxury vehicle market. The Honda supercar, NSX was released in 1991. In 1999, the first Honda Hybrid was made.
The next major advancement made to Hondas was the “Fuel Cell Technology” vehicle in 2008. This can generate hydrogen by using renewable sources. The car is powered by hydrogen and oxygen. Together, they create a zero-emissions car!
In September 2017 Honda’s first all-electric car was made. It was called the Honda e. Honda has plans to release more electric and zero-emissions vehicles in 2030.
HOW LONG DOES A HONDA LAST?
How long are Honda made to last? Well, on average, your Honda should be retired when it has about 200,000 miles to 300,000 miles. At this point, your Honda may have reached a repair that would cost more than the car’s actual value.
Each Honda should last you about 15 -20 years. But, this will only happen if the proper maintenance is taking place. Oil changes every 5,000 – 7,500 miles, keeping up on your A service and B service. All of these are ways to keep your Honda lasting longer.
The Honda with the most miles is the 1991 Honda Accord EX. It got to 1.16 million miles! This Honda was passed down into a family for a couple of generations.
