All-new 2016 Honda Pilot Earns a 2015 TOP SAFETY PICK+ Rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)
- 2016 Pilot offers the most comprehensive set of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies ever available on a Honda vehicle
- Available Honda Sensing™ suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies combines camera and radar systems to help detect vehicles, pedestrians and roadway markings
- Honda’s aims to reduce collisions, injuries and fatalities involving its vehicles, using Honda Sensing™ technology
TORRANCE, Calif., Aug. 21, 2015 – The fully redesigned 2016 Honda Pilot (automobiles.honda.com/pilot/) has received a 2015 TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) when equipped with optional front crash prevention, bringing Honda one step closer to fulfilling the company’s goal to be first three-row mainstream SUV with the highest available U.S. government (NCAP) and IIHS safety ratings. This IIHS distinction includes a top rating of GOOD in five IIHS crash test modes including a top score of GOOD in the Insurance Institute’s stringent small overlap frontal crash test. The 2015 TOP SAFETY PICK+ designation is awarded to vehicles that also have an available front crash prevention system that earns an advanced or superior rating from the Institute. The 2016 Pilot offers an available frontal crash prevention system that earns a top rating of superior.
“The 2016 Pilot is not only the most technologically advanced Honda vehicle on the road today, but the top choice for family SUV buyers interested in safety performance,” said Jeff Conrad, Honda Division senior vice president and general manager. “No other midsize mainstream SUV on the market today can match the comprehensive suite of Honda Sensing™ advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies on the new Honda Pilot.”
Available on Pilot EX trims and above, Honda Sensing™ can help improve drivers’ situational awareness with its various systems, which include the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Road Departure Mitigation (RDM). These systems benefit from the adoption of a sensor fusion technology integrating the capabilities of a windshield-mounted monocular camera and front grille-mounted millimeter wave radar system to provide enhanced sensing with the ability to identify and anticipate multiple collision scenarios, including those involving a pedestrian. When the system anticipates a collision or road departure, it can initiate warnings and, in certain instances, initiate emergency braking and steering.
“The Pilot demonstrates Honda’s commitment to achieving the highest levels of safety performance,” said IIHS president Adrian Lund. “The Pilot’s crashworthiness ratings set a high standard, and its optional front crash prevention system will help drivers avoid some kinds of crashes to begin with.”
In addition, the 2016 Pilot adopts the latest generation of Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure along with a new “3-bone” underbody frame design and new hot-stamped ultra-high strength steel door rings. Together with Honda Sensing™, these engineering features and technologies deliver major gains to the Pilot’s collision avoidance and collision protection capabilities.
Standard safety equipment on all Honda models include Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) electronic stability control system, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Brake Assist, frontal airbags, side airbags, side-curtain airbags and a front seat design that can help reduce the severity of neck injury in the event of a rear collision. Honda is also leading the industry in the deployment of rearview cameras, which are standard equipment on all model year 2015 and newer Honda vehicles.
The third generation of Honda’s popular three-row SUV Pilot was designed and developed by Honda R&D Americas, Inc., in Los Angeles and Ohio, and is manufactured exclusively by Honda Manufacturing of Alabama, LLC, in Lincoln, Alabama.1
Honda has a long history of leadership in the development and application of advanced technologies designed to enhance the safety of all road users, including automobile occupants, motorcycle riders and pedestrians. The company operates two of the world’s most sophisticated crash test facilities, in Ohio and Japan, and is responsible for numerous pioneering efforts in the areas of crashworthiness, airbag technology, collision compatibility and pedestrian safety.

Dogs make great driving buddies. They love your music choices, and they’re not backseat drivers. Unfortunately, a dog can wreak havoc on the interior of your vehicle, as they’re prone to leaving hair and slobber all over the place, resulting in a nasty cleanup process.
Fortunately, there are ways for your best friend to tag along without wrecking your interior. So if you want to enjoy a quick drive with your dog without dealing with the aftermath, here are the best ways to pet-proof your Honda.
Fabric and Seats
Your dog likely will ride shotgun or sit in the backseat on your drives, especially when the family isn’t in tow. While your buddy may love being close to you, he could leave stains and massive amounts of hair all over the seats. To protect you upholstery, try removable plastic or seat covers. They easily attach to and can be removed from the seats for easy cleanup.
You can also spray your seats with water-repelling fabric protectant. Mainly used to fight against against slobber, the waterproof barrier will prevent any wet spots and stains on the seats. Just make sure to test the spray on a small area of your seat to see what happens before applying all over the seats.
Floors and Cargo Area
For dogs that like to move to the floor or enjoy views from the cargo area, floor mats are your best bet for puppy proofing. All-weather and rubber mats capture the fur and drool, and like the seat covers, they can easily be installed and removed. They’re also easy to clean. Just remove them from the car and hose them down.
Smells and Odors
Air fresheners can combat any smells associated with your pooch, but this may only be a temporary solution. So if the dog smell in your car is overwhelming, take your vehicle for interior detailing services. This will not only get your Honda smelling great again, but it will also help to address any interior damage your dog has caused.
No matter how much you try to prevent stains and loose fur pileups, your dog will case the occasional mess in your vehicle. Keep a cleaning kit tucked away in your Honda and make sure it includes stain removers, glass cleaners, lint rollers, air fresheners, and water. This will keep your car looking presentable at all times and prevent unsightly stains from setting in.
You can also pack a small vacuum for a thorough clean at a moment’s notice. But if you’re driving a Honda Odyssey, you can save some room with the HondaVac. This feature in the Touring Elite trim of the 2015 model is a built-in vacuum that can reach the rear, middle, and front of the vehicle. Two attachments are included so you can really pick up all of the dirt and fur your dog tracks in.
Though your dog can leave a mess in your car, there’s no reason they can’t enjoy riding with you. With the best ways to pet-proof your Honda listed above, your furry friend will get to spend some quality time with you, and you can drive off with peace of mind knowing that your car is protected.
New Honda models are great pet chariots. They’re spacious and even offer amenities to make your drives with your pup easier. This year’s lineup is now available at Norm Reeves Honda Superstore in Cerritos near Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Downey. To schedule your test drive, visit our showroom at 18500 Studebaker Road in Cerritos!
The 10th annual Norm Reeves Car Show was held yesterday, at their 183rd street Campus, in the Cerritos Auto Square. This event was very well received by enthusiasts, the underground scene, and race teams alike. With a full registration prior to the show, it was poised to be a well attended event…and did not disappoint.
On display was the Bisimoto 2015 480hp Honda Fit, and the 2014 1029hp Honda Odyssey Minivan. I had the opportunity to field questions on the build, my experiences with the Top Gear Television show, why I chose certain parts for the builds, what was coming on the horizon with upcoming Honda builds, and if Bisimoto will a crack at the new Civic Type R and the Acura NSX.
My jaw was sore by midday due to my verbal interactions with those in attendance, and I also had the honor of taking pictures with many well wishers at the event. Upon my departure with the Odyssey, a few videos were shot by bystanders, and in normal fashion, quickly uploaded to Instagram and other social networks.
It was wonderful seeing representatives from NRH and PurOl at this successful function. Thanks so much for your support, and the opportunity to positively influence so many. My next outing is the Rusnak Morning Octane event this coming Saturday, at the Lake Avenue Church in Pasadena. I look forward to seeing many of you there.

- Accord recognized as one of the top family sedans for the third straight year by parenting and car experts
- The subcompact Fit is honored as one of the best budget cars
- CR-V highlighted as a standout in the crossover category of the annual list
TORRANCE, Calif., June 3, 2015 – The 2015 Honda Fit (www.automobiles.honda.com/fits/), Accord (www.automobiles.honda.com/Accord) and CR-V (automobiles.honda.com/cr-v/) have been named to the 10 Best Family Cars list compiled by the parenting and car experts at Parents magazine and Edmunds.com. The three family-friendly Honda vehicles – each earning the top crashworthiness ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and equipped with a standard rearview camera – were selected out of hundreds of models for excelling in the key areas of safety, convenience features, performance and value.
The Accord was recognized as one of the top sedans for families for the third straight year. The Accord features sophisticated styling, fuel-efficient powertrains1 and advanced technology features like the available LaneWatch™ display and a standard multi-angle rearview camera. With safety a top shopping consideration for families, the Accord shines by earning a TOP SAFETY PICK rating from IIHS and a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in its New Car Assessment Program (NCAP).2
The spacious, fuel-efficient1 and versatile 2015 Honda Fit was chosen as one of the best budget cars on the annual list. The all-new 2015 Honda Fit is even more of a standout choice in the subcompact segment with its small-on-the-outside, big-on-the-inside packaging, incredibly versatile second-row Magic Seat® and a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP)3 starting at just $15,525. The Fit features a fresh and modern design, a sporty and efficient engine, plus a highly versatile interior loaded with equipment essential for urban driving, including a standard rearview camera and Bluetooth® hands-free connectivity. Occupant safety features for the 2015 Honda Fit are further enhanced through the use of Honda’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, helping Fit earn a TOP SAFETY PICK rating from IIHS, including a GOOD rating in its stringent small overlap frontal crash test.
The 2015 CR-V, also recognized as one of the best crossovers for families, received the most significant mid-cycle redesign in its history, with a new direct-injected EarthDreams™ Technology i-VTEC® engine and continuously variable transmission (CVT) to improve performance and fuel efficiency1. A new suite of Honda Sensing™ safety and driver-assistive features, available on the Touring trim, contribute to the vehicle’s TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from IIHS. Additionally, the CR-V features significantly enhanced exterior and interior styling, while a long list of new family-friendly standard and available features brings a new level of sophistication to America’s top-selling SUV4.

Anaheim has no shortage of fun places to visit, but Southern California can get oppressively hot. If you need a place to cool down during the summer, try one of these three local favorites.
300 West Lincoln Avenue
When you imagine summer activities in Southern California, ice skating probably doesn’t come to mind. However, thanks to an architect with Disneyland experience and a snack bar that serves cold brews, Anaheim ICE is one of the best places in the city to stay cool year-round. When the pavement gets too hot to pound, turn to a form of entertainment that actually requires you to bundle up.
A vaulted wooden roof stretches over two huge indoor ice rinks, one sized for Olympic figure skating and one for professional hockey. Public ice times vary, but there’s at least 1 two-hour session every day of the week.
On Friday and Saturday nights, afternoon and evening skates take place on the larger rink with festive lights and music. On weekday mornings, kids and adults alike can learn how to skate with private or group instructions.
Refer to the rink’s monthly schedule online, or call for more information about hours and lesson availability.
400 North Harbor Boulevard
Pearson Park’s ponds and fountains are surrounded by historic homes and filled with friendly ducks, making this municipal park a more relaxing place to spend a pleasant summer day. The clean, safety-optimized playground features strategic canopies to give parents and kids a bit of relief, and there are vendors on hand with shaved ice and ice cream to bring down your body temperature.
Of course, the park’s main attractions for restless local families are the swimming pool and the Pearson Park Amphitheatre. The pool is nestled behind the fields and courts, with daily lane swimming practice and open sessions for public recreation. Meanwhile, the city’s landmark amphitheater is insulated by terra cotta roof tiles and shaded by Mexican fan palms, pygmy date palms, and Bougainvillea arbors — ensuring all-night comfort after a day in the pool.
The city of Anaheim has hosted free family-friendly shows in this Spanish-style venue since 1933, and this summer continues another tradition of one particular favorite: Summer Nights Under the Stars. Every Friday through August, the 2,000-seat theater fills with families who want to learn, laugh, or just enjoy an entertaining show after the sun stops shining. It costs $3 to attend each 6:30 pm show, and performers range from ballerinas and aerial acrobats to comedians, magicians, traditional folk musicians, and even “scientists” who engage kids with zany laboratory experiments.
3200 East Carpenter Avenue
This local treasure is famous for Castles of the World, technically the country’s largest mini golf course, which keeps kids happy with nautical, historic, tropical, and royal themes.
However, this outdoor attraction isn’t the coolest thing about Camelot. Inside, a 200-machine video arcade and 5,000-square-foot laser tag arena offers hours of air-conditioned fun, and Iceberg Shakes are available in hundreds of custom combinations. Outside, it gets even cooler.
If you really want to make a splash this summer, try the five-story tube slides that twist through the sky every day except Sunday. These slides are open through Labor Day, and the public can ride them from noon until 5 pm.
If you want to get even more physical in the water, cool off in the new bumper boat lagoon that features jet-propelled boats for every rider.
Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Cerritos wants you to stay cool this summer. And if you’re in the market for a new vehicle, stop by our dealership to look at our newest Hondas.
