Honda U.S PLANT

2. The Accord has achieved something no other car has ever gained. It has featured in the Car and Driver’s 10 Best Cars list for 30 times. On this achievement, John Conrad, general manager and VP of Honda America said, ‘Do something special once, you might be called lucky. Do something special twice, you start to build some credibility. Do something special 30 times, like the 10 Best Honda Accord, and you’ve accomplished something truly extraordinary.
