It’s that time of the year again. The holidays are in full swing and seemingly every company is launching its holiday commercials. Car companies are particularly "spirited" this year, as the U.S. automotive crash is on its way up and they are all trying to capitalize on folks that would like nothing more than a new car this year.
As always, Honda has gotten itself in the holiday spirit with the unveiling of its yearly "Happy Honda Days" campaign. This year, Honda has launched six new commercials as part of the campaign and each spot opens with someone thanking Honda for giving their friend or relative a great deal on a new car.
For example, Laura is very happy with her new Civic, Nancy loves her son Steve’s new Pilot, while Pete is grateful for his Dad’s Accord. Hit the jump to watch everyone’s story with Honda.
So, while you’re stuffing your face with turkey, or whatever you fancy on Thanksgiving, allow these videos to get you all amped up for the rest of the holiday season. Yes, even the craziness that will be "Black Friday."

With prices starting from $27,895, the 2010 Honda Pilot keeps offering practical SUV capabilities with the driving sophistication and refinement that people expect from a Honda. For 2010, the Pilot if being offered in four trims: EX, LX, EX-L and Touring with either 2WD and 4WD configuration.
Every Honda Pilot is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that delivers an impressive 250 hp and 253 lb.-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a 5-Speed Automatic Transmission with Grade Logic Control. Fuel economy is an EPA-estimated4 city/highway/combined fuel economy of 17/23/19 mpg on two-wheel-drive models and 16/22/18 mpg on four-wheel-drive models.
This transmission uses the engine’s broad torque curve for brisk acceleration, optimal fuel economy and smooth-shifting characteristics. Grade Logic Control improves efficiency under a wide variety of driving conditions, such as uphill/downhill and city-traffic driving. It "knows" when the Pilot is on a hill and automatically holds the engine in a lower gear for better climbing power and increased engine braking when going downhill. This decreases annoying "gear hunting" that can often occur with other automatic transmissions in these situations.
