HondaLink® Adds New Driver Feedback Feature

Honda is teaming up with Verisk Analytics on a new feature that tells you how you’re driving. Driver Feedback, available through HondaLink®, senses how you drive and offers suggestions to improve efficiency and minimize wear and tear.

The all-new Driver Feedback feature is available for eligible Honda owners who have at one point had HondaLink®. Qualifying vehicles include the 2018 and newer Honda Accord Touring; 2019 and newer Honda Passport Touring and Elite; and 2019 and newer Honda Pilot Touring, Elite and Black Edition. 

Driver Feedback uses data to generate a Driving Score, which according to Verisk Analytics is based on five different factors: Smooth Driving, Consistent Driving, Driving Time, Speed Responsibility and Time Behind the Wheel. Monitoring everything from the time of day to speed and braking, Driver Feedback provides tips to help improve your behavior behind the wheel. By following the advice given, you could find yourself becoming a more fuel-efficient and risk-averse driver.

Though Verisk Analytics uses the data to determine your Driving Score, it’s worth noting that no personal information is shared with a third party without your authorization. Opting in to the Driver Feedback feature is entirely at your discretion, and you can just as easily opt-out as you please.

Driver Feedback is yet another way Honda is working to provide a more connected experience. Experience innovation and excitement firsthand by checking out the Honda lineup at Russell Honda in Sherwood, Arkansas.

Honda is reaching new milestones. In particular, the brand recently announced that it has one million vehicles with Honda Sensing® technology on the road right now in the US. Offering next-generation driver-assist safety technology, Honda Sensing® is an unparalleled system. Helping you to reduce damage and claim rates, this technology is the future of driving.

According to Honda, the brand will be providing Honda Sensing® technology standard on all 2022 model-year vehicles. The IIHS, Highway Loss Data Institute, and Honda recently worked together to publish scientific studies to show that Honda Sensing® is incredibly effective in reducing damage to other vehicles and property, and it can even reduce claim rates. Believe it or not, claim rates drop an average of 28% with Honda Sensing®.

“Honda dreams of a collision-free mobile society and the Honda Sensing technology has a crucial role to play in advancing us toward that goal,” said Henio Arcangeli, Jr., senior vice president of the American Honda Automobile Division. “With the rapidly growing population of Honda vehicles applying these technologies, we hope to significantly reduce collisions involving Honda vehicles within the next three to four years.”
