Having worked for Ford Motor in a past life, I think Honda's accomplishments are even more impressive. I feel Honda/Acura now have (arguably) the best lineup of cars available. Even with that, they never rest on their laurels as they constantly strive to improve their products. I say Kudos.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by nyvram:
Funny you should post that quote; I was just thinking about this very thing.
I have a hard time rewriting code for a large project. Imagining these engineers at Honda (and everywhere) being able to build enhancements (like 02 Ody has) every SINGLE year; then completely come up w/ a new vehicle from scratch (more or less) every 4-5 years or so that works is pretty amazing to me. Heck, it'll probably take me 6 months to finish all the mods on my van and they're NOTHING compared to switching out transmissions, add rear-disk brakes, get Michelen to build a new type of tire for you, rebuild front facia w/ different grille (how many people are affected who actually build the molds, etc.) design & fabricate new trim that contains cup-holders for the middle chairs, engineer side-airbags & do all the requesite testing to ensure all the sensors & wiring works properly...and it goes on & on. How the heck do you do that & still keep track of fixing all the bugs from the previous year?
