Wow - one of the least intelligent articles I've read recently (and that's not a reference to multiple typos/poorly written sentences within the article). Who makes this stuff up?

You seriously believe the CR-V is a miss-step because it failed a simulated icy hill test? Wow - let's notify all the owners that use them day-to-day in icy and snowy conditions and tell them that their 4WD system can't pass a test, rather than focus on the fact that it still works in THE REAL WORLD. It's also a trade-off for fuel economy and weight by limiting the torque capacity of the rear wheels like that (it allows lighter/smaller components).

ASIMO was one of the first commonly-shown and updated robots - very neat and ahead of its time, especially from an automaker. Honda wasn't intent on making robots - it was just an offshoot technology demonstration of their other areas.

The airbag recall is not Honda's fault, it's Takata's fault. They falsified their test and QA documents to hide the problem. Though lamentable, that's hardly a miss-step by Honda (or many others with millions of vehicles affected by the recall)...

Yeah, all this regularly "curated content" crap kinda kills the credibility of this site.

Here's a free tip - this forum has plenty of regular traffic. We don't need trite clickbait articles to generate discussion.

Both our BMW and Mercedes were recalled for the Takata airbag. The S2k I had and the Accord my dad has were not affected. Hardly a Honda-specific problem...

Yeah, if you were going to put big "Honda mis-steps" on this board, the two biggest complaints are the letting the S2000 whither on the vine for 10 years without trying to hard to update it and the Acura beak. I don't think Asimo would make the list.
