100 thoughts on “How BIG is Honda? (They Make Jets!)

  1. Starting from a motorbike company and moving to 4 wheels just like Honda but Suzuki doesn´t end up well, despite their 2 wheels are very good

  2. First car -> 1990 Civic Si hatch, loved it. Bought it from a courier who put 620,000 km's on it. I put another 30,000km on it and sold it for what I paid 2 years later. Next car, 1998 Civic hatch…man I loved that car, got married and traded it in for a brand new 2003 Civic 4 door. Fast forward 16 years, I traded that '03 in last month for a new 2019 Civic EX. Not to mention I'm on my 2nd Odyssey for a "family" vehicle. Gotta love Honda!

  3. Cars overflowing on the road are merits and demerits. Carbon fuel engines have promoted global warming. Soichiro's CVCC is low pollution and environmentally friendly like Honda Cub. With advanced technology, sports cars are also required to adapt to the environment with hybrids and EVs. The automobile society will be transformed by an information revolution toward an environmentally friendly mobility society. Honda, Toyota, and the world will be reorganized.

  4. In my opinion, Japan cars are the best in the world, because I have driven several cars in my life. From bmw, mercedes to Fiat, vw and Opel, from Mitsubishi to Toyota. With German cars I had to much issues if I compare them to the Japans. At the Japan cars I had to only spent money in their maintenance like for Oil, Brakes, Tires.

  5. Did you know there is a monument of piston ring with Honda Soichiro's hand-written letter of 夢 (dream) just inside the entrance of Honda Collection Hall? It is located in the site of Twin Ring Motegi, which hosts some big races like Japan MotoGP.

  6. My first Honda was the 1200cc 4 door hatchback Civic when it came out in Southen California (USA). I drove it everywhere, including off-road hill climbing in the desert with my friends. They rode dirt bikes, but I could go anywhere there was enough width for the car. I had a lot of trouble with the air cleaner becoming clogged up with sand and dirt. But I never had it overheat or vapor lock, which they did have on their cycles. I moved to Japan in 1974 and drove a 360cc HONDA City ( 2 door) for about a year. It was really fun to drive and VERY lightweight. Then I bought a 4 door Civic (CVCC engine). It gave me a lot of good service until I upgraded to a 2000cc sedan which I drove until the compulsory annual service charge was more than the car was worth. So I traded to a HONDA Fit (Shuttle) which I’m still driving. So all in all, I’ve been driving HONDAS for about 50 years. Oh, I forgot the 250cc Scrambler motorcycle I drove for 5 years until I traded up to the Hatchback. I’ve been satisfied with every one of them I’ve never had trouble with reliability or replacement, except tires. Roads in Japan are narrow and twisty, and I enjoy driving full out and I still enjoy using my 7 speed automatic transmission just as if I was in a rally or a road race. HONDA builds exceptional quality products, and I’m still getting good gas mileage. If you’d call me a HONDA fan, I’d take it as a compliment. . . any day!

  7. “When Congress passes new emission standards, we hire 50 more engineers and GM hires 50 more lawyers."

    I told this story about Honda to my mother. And she very inspired by Honda's decision to concentrate on innovating rather than lobbing their interests with endless lawyers. By doing this they shown how to make excellent lemonade out of a lemon, to envy of their competitors. This is also an inspirational story for young people to use their intellect to keep moving forward despite obstacles and avoiding cutting corners.

    She also said that Soichiro Honda was very wise man, let his soul rest in peace.

  8. For his two wheelers business he wrote 13000 letters by hand 60% of them never accepted only rest were interested one of them were hero cycles India they collaborated and made amazing two Wheelers which I still love today.

  9. You neglected to mention that Soichiro got kicked off the exec group of his own company and was relegated to a made up position that mainly used him for PR

  10. "During this period Honda produced 100 bikes a month while others managed just 15.000 pr year" !? 1200 pr year is alot less than 15.000 pr year last I checked.. Or did you mean all others combined?

  11. Only 573HP on the new NSX when it has a 3,5 litre V6 turbo and 3 electric engines!? I did not know it had that "little" power with that amount of engine capacity. The 3,5 litre should be able to bring that amount of hp (or more) by itself (with no electric engine help) without problems.

  12. Honda, Toyota/Lexus and Mazda* are the greatest car manufacturers today.
    *only the cars when Mazda was separated from ford (before 1996 and 2008 onward)

  13. I really wish Ho day would develop a diesel engine for the Civic or Accord or even the Civic Hybrid. Could you imagine the fuel mileage a car could get with a Honda developed diesel engine?

  14. After a lot of years from Vietnam and U.S country of my experience in working so far . I have an idea that if I have my own company I would like to try any way to find the good ones to work for my company. Because I think that if coworkers when they come at work they just work and concern their coworkers attacking anyway to kick each other out of company. This can be good in the production group. Owners should find the honest people work for them longer .because when all of honest people to work together in United every thing would be good . They love and respect each other they just work in creating for products.

  15. I think the smart people work together is easier more than otherwise people. Because they would respect other people do better than them and themselves will update in the job you follow others. Stupid people they work less but they would like to find anything to kick their coworkers out soon in their eyes every work day.

  16. I don't have big money. If I win lottery tickets I will do it as my ideas telling here
    I used to be upset a lot of bad people so far .I haven't attracted them but I left at work in my mind pain and calm . I never to find anything to win them I just sad of myself drop right the wrong work place.

  17. Just some days ago my company had the firefighters visiting for checking. I found to see the smoking as a cloud in the sky I told my bad guy like that. Just some minutes later the main guy required everyone should come out of the building. After done is nothing for reasons. I think that if the building was fire on is the smoking would look different from smoking from product machines . I don't know why the main guy call firefighters early when nothing where it was. While firefighters worked to check reasons of the building smoking. Some guys who working there at that time using the phone took the pics or cameras on my coworker he did too. I never do that. I know that is a serious action could affect to this company name in the future. I see them doing that I couldn't say them stop. I work for any owner I always keep and protect for them in my mind control.

  18. This company having a bad leader but he is person control and observe me and others . The last night he and me heard the sound after I found it where it was he using equipment to make it but while he doing it affected forms of material. So after long time he asked me why it was like that . I told him that why from your fixed thing before. I think that he knew but he do like asking new foreign guy. I know my race is stupid more than Spanish. I figured out he thought this company needs the employee as him . Because he think he has been having a lot of experience in this job . If the employee would have the same things like that if I will be owner I never keep him works longer . I need the guy has big heart.

  19. I think that if I have a lot of money I will do anything to see honest and smart people work for U.S country then my family living.

  20. I like the guy who works cleaning for this company even though he doesn't work with me .but he is a reliable and funny old man

  21. After I left my former company to work another company. I figured out that my former manager he was smart guy because he knew I don't like him but im a good employee to fix good of the parts from.his bad people made . Totally, he is vietnamese people as me so I think that native vietnamese people also smart a little bit compared with Americans. He always respect keeping freedom for me to do my job duty. He also knows my characters. So he never believes his people complain me. I had worked with him.for 5 years if Manager stupid could kick me out already. I can't work former company because my shoulder and leg hurt chronic days I should leave for my health. I'm a person who doesn't like work many places in my life .

  22. Bring back the Integra, Prelude, CRX. Imagine making these cars back again with Retro-look and Modern twist, with performance similar to today's Type R Civic..? Power of Dreams right?👍

  23. i own a 2018 full options 2018 Civic sedan with 1,5 turbo. It moves like a rocket at the same time being fuel efficent. It looks beatiful aswell in white and full LED headlights and so on. As a German car fan, honda has the soft spot in me. Thats why i bought a Honda CBR as my two wheeled rocket. Its like a tank in reliability. 3 years in and zero problems. Thank you Honda.

  24. Prowd owner of a 1990 Civic Sedan (unmodified) with 300,000+ miles, 2004 Element with 200,000+ miles, 2014 CR-V with 150,000+ miles, and recently a 2018 Civic Hatchback.

    Safe to say, I love my Hondas.

  25. Yea, WTF happened with the LITTLE, SIMPLE INEXPENSIVE CAR.???
    Corporate world took over and that is no longer an option.

  26. Everytime I see a video on Japanese people and companies I feel two strong emotions – first how great they are and second why am I wasting my time seeing their greatness instead of building nine 😂😲😂

  27. What i really admired from his family is his son the owner of Mugen Power which never gave up too and insted it bacame a tuning shop and parts and honda lovers loved the fact that it was made in japan then imported on U.S
