It's 9:00 EST New Years Eve and I'm still on Edmunds. Geez, I need to get a life. Happy New Year everyone!
I know you're referring to the Taurus, but earlier the 1949 Ford also saved that company.Of course, what we didn't know at the time was the massive corruption going on within the sales force of American Honda.
"Arrogance and Accords" from Steve Lynch documented the whole thing from an insider's perspective.
Glad to see you mention that book. That was a very good book. I also enjoyed Bob Lutz's book, Car Guys Versus Bean Counters. Another book that was good is The Making of the Car That Saved Ford [Eric Taub].
Some history on stretching the numbers, and the consequences, from today's New York Times...
The 2016 Civic may be a good start for Honda to get its mojo back.
