Honda utilizes state-of-the-art facilities in its manufacturing operations that have set new
standards in the automotive industry. One of these is a leading-edge painting facility,
which involves a full-dip paint system that consists of a Cationic Electro Deposition (CED)
bath, to ensure seamless coating, proper paint adhesion and total anti-corrosion.
The assembly line implements stringent measures to uphold the superior quality of Honda
products. All cars are subjected to intensive inspection and testing at the Vehicle
Quality section to guarantee the top condition of units upon release. A G-SWAT and
headlight tester measures head and toe alignment and wheel alignment. A Brake Speed
Tester checks running performance at full speed, shifting levels, clutch operation and
braking force. Other tests include a Side Slip Test, Visual Inspection, and Water Leak
Tests. But most significant is a simulation test on a first-of-its-kind 400-meter course
that assesses a vehicle’s performance on different road conditions.
