Default Honda's drive every drop campaign

Have a look at Honda's ::: Honda - DRIVE EVERY DROP ::: - nice marketing tag line! Warning, it is highly bandwidth hungry and even the low bandwidth version is slow..

I'd received a survey about this campaign - where the stress was on whether Honda was able to communicate responsibility (fuel efficiency, environmental), driving pleasure and technological prowess with this ad. I found the whole campaign built around a carbon fuel not too much in sync with eco-consciousness, this is 2008, not 1988!

What did you feel after the ad ?

I fully agree.
Why no IMA in every car?
i-VTEC is around for some time now.
The FE people get from i-VTEC is surely not as great as advertised. So is the torque...in fact the low end torque in the 1.8L i-VTEC Civic is disappointing.

Does torque come for free ?

Would you like to pay 15L for a City?

Didn't think so.

Tech like that doesn't come cheap.

I thought the ad was kiddish and patronising. I like the cars, but the website itself was awfully boring.

I don't know, I loved the hippy and high-on-life style of the presentations. Its pukka Japanese

There is a very basic error in the i-VTEC explaination page. The high and low valve lift labels are backwards.
