    Honda is giving fans something to be really thankful for this Thanksgiving week.

    On Tuesday, Honda announced that select Honda and Acura models including the 2013 -2014 Honda Accord and 2013 Acura RDX and ILX now offer Apple's Siri Eyes Free mode.

    The feature comes as a "dealer installed accessory."

    First introduced at Apple's 2012 WWDC, Siri Eyes Free continues to see major interest from the world's top auto makers. The most aggressive of recent supporters is Honda.

    By reengineering the software in select vehicles (through the HondaLink or AcuraLink connected car systems) Siri seamlessly works with HandsFreeLink via the onboard microphone and speakers.
    "Honda recognizes the power of Siri Eyes Free to meet connectivity and convenience needs of its customers in a responsible manner," said Art St. Cyr, an executive with Honda. "With technology becoming further integrated into people's lives, we are happy to provide next-generation connectivity and meet our customer's ever-changing needs."
