“Inside are seats clad in black fabric, with the top-of-the-line VX+ still getting the all-leather treatment. There is great visibility out of the cockpit in any direction, and despite this being my first time in a fourth-generation City, I find it easy to just fall into the driver seat and work out a good driving position, aided in part by the tilt-and-telescopic tiller. The seats have good lumbar and thigh support, although the shoulder area is a bit tight around my wide-ish frame. As in the outgoing model, only the VX+ gets 60/40 split-folding rear seats. The VX’s bench-only rear accommodations is impressive for a B-segment car, and the comfort is definitely still there.

The Honda Accord is affordable primarily thanks to the automaker’s legendary reliability: You are highly unlikely to see a new Accord requiring any major repairs for years, barring an accident. And as components for Accords are so readily available, repairs and maintenance are not that expensive , either. With a starting price of $23,720 for a new model, the Accord is one of the cheapest cars out there in the long run.
Whitmer has done her best to quantify the price of inaction, citing a study from TRIP , an independent think tank that focuses on surface transportation, showing that poor road conditions cost a typical Michigan driver $646 a year . Whitmer’s plan wouldn’t eliminate that cost, but it could reduce it by a few hundred dollars. That is more than what the typical consumer would end up paying in new gas taxes, according to estimates from the Whitmer administration and some independent analysts .
At night – after a long work day and high-school lacrosse games or my own play practices – when I drive into our driveway, there is that sense of tranquility we yearn for in the places we live: a longing to be inside, safe, and warm. The lighting looks like candlelight seen through the big plate glass windows from the road. The front door beckons and the windows blink, keeping our house alive, vibrant with laughter and tears, hunger and rest, joy and conflict, and most of all peace.
But what’s most impressive is the Kona Electric’s regenerative braking and how it lets you drive using just one pedal. It’s a system similar to the e-Niro’s that offers different levels of regeneration. ‘Off’ means the car will coast when you lift off the throttle and hardly lose any speed. As the levels increase, they use the motor to decelerate more aggressively when you lift off. It’s similar to the engine braking you get when changing down gears in an ICE car, clicking the left paddle to ramp up regeneration when slowing down.

Reliability is a tricky issue. What the general public mostly knows about brands and cars when it comes down to reliability tends to be based on reputations made or broken years or decades ago. BMW and Honda are good examples. Honda has an age old reputation for reliability yet, based on research, modern Honda places 15th out of 29 brands for reliability. Whereas, BMW who had a rough patch at the turn of the century and still has a reputation for unreliability despite being in 8th place on the same list. Ford, who still has its die-hard brand fanatics, is down in 18th place. As does Chevy, the brand in 23rd place.
