2008 Ridgeline RTS in Billet Silver Metallic
OTOH, we've seen him be responsible for the Civic debacle, the cancellation of the diesel engine option, and numerous other things that did not win him any friends on the interweb. In addition, he was not known as a proponent of the RL either.This is a false impression of what Ito has done: Ito has introduced the Earth Dreams engines and CVTs, built several factories around the world, is bringing turbos, the 8DCT debuted world-class hybrid tech, got Honda back into F1, is finally seeing HondaJet get off the ground - not to mention shaken up everything from design to parts procurement to R&D. If you don't like him that's fine but he's done anything but coast.
