Honda Pulls Off Double Win at Auto Show
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
And across the country in Detroit, the North American International Auto Show opened yesterday. The industry's biggest annual show highlights the world's latest cars and trucks. For the first time, the winners of the car and truck of the year are from the same automaker, Honda. Honda's Civic sedan and its Ridgeline pickup topped the list. More than 50 cars and trucks were eligible. The results were another setback for Ford and General Motors, which have been losing market share to Japanese competitors. The show will open to the public on Saturday.
