At last, Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) is really to bring the CR-Z here. Deliveries, however, are not expected to arrive until August. So what they're doing to help pre-sell their new two-door hybrid sports coupe is to take it on a road tour. The CR-Z will make a total of nine stops across Honda dealerships in Metro Manila. But do care to note that they'll display the CR-Z Mugen Concept previewed at the Philippine International Motor Show (PIMS) last year, not the latest 2013-spec CR-Z that's on sale.
Available in six variants, HCPI began pre-selling the CR-Z last April 26, 2013 on a “first come, first serve” delivery basis. That means, if you put in your reservation on the 1st week of May, you're assured to be one of the first few to get a brand-new CR-Z by August.
The Honda CR-Z Mugen Concept will make these nine stops in Metro Manila:

recall pilot
Honda Cars Philippines Inc. (HCPI) today issued a voluntary recall which affects some 171 units of the Honda Pilot and Odyssey sold in the Philippines from June 2012 to January 2013. This is part of a campaign that involves 836,176 Pilots and Odyssesys worldwide which were manufactured in the USA. The issue addressed by this bulletin comes from a potential inappropriate installation of driver-side front airbag rivets.
“Findings show that there are possibly some rivets which secure the driver’s front airbag cover and bracket that were inappropriately installed. As a result, the deployment characteristics of the affected airbags may change upon collision and driver protection performance may decrease,” read HCPI's official statement. Thankfully, no crashes or injuries have been reported related to this issue.

Fans of the brand and the car in the Philippines have been clamoring for the Odyssey for decades. Well, it’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally here. Strangely, this isn’t the Odyssey any of us pictured coming in. Don’t be fooled by the Japanese logo, this one’s an American mini-van through and through. Designed, built, and sold in America. While this American focus has reaped it great sales and accolades in the US, the concept and execution are radically different from the Odyssey’s Asian market competitors. Well, if you can’t have a market segment all to yourself, sometimes it pays to make your own.
