Hondas Ready For Spring - Vallejo, CA

Why You Should Get Your Car Ready for Spring

 

You know what they say—if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. But the truth is, even if your car doesn’t seem to be begging for help now, it might do well with a little extra care. Avery Greene Honda recommends that you get your car ready for spring so that it runs well and looks great all throughout the warmer seasons.

Get A Checkup

It’s important to get your oil changed every three months or so, and the beginning of spring is a great time to do it. This will also give your mechanic a chance to look over the rest of vehicle and to check things like brake fluids and wheel alignment, which may need some attention after a long, hard winter.

Clean the Exterior

Honda Ridgeline Spring Fishing - Vallejo, CAIf you have a busy schedule like most people, you know that it’s tempting to just hope that the rain will clean your car as much as it needs it. However, much of your car—and especially the undercarriage—may have built up road salt from the winter. This can ultimately cause corrosion and rusting if left on for too long. Use a power wash to clean underneath, and a soapy towel to scrub off grime.

Get New Wipers

April showers are no lie, and you’ll want to be prepared for them. Spring is a great time to get new wipers so that you’ll have the best possible visibility for safe driving when the rain starts to pour.

When all was said and done, the new Honda Ridgeline blew away the competition.

2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Details Emerge

The 2017 Honda Civic has been the source of enthusiastic praise and admiration with its sporty style and sleek, ergonomic interior. The popular compact car already comes in both sedan and coupe body styles, but there’s something missing. We’ve already seen the European 2017 Honda Civic hatchback at the Paris Auto Show, but now the American version has been caught on film.

The orange markers on the fenders are a dead giveaway that the pictures of the Civic hatchback are indeed of the American model. It will officially join the sedan and coupe Civics that are already on sale later this fall.

The hatchback will offer only one engine choice for the initial launch. A 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder block that produces 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque will sit under the hood of the LX, EX, and EX-L. Power peaks in the Sport and Sport Touring trims at 180 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque with a six-speed manual transmission.

Those interested in the upcoming Type-R model can sing praises as the hatchback will serve as the base for the performance-driven model. Expect the Type-R Civic to hit the market in 2017 and bring more than 300 hp to the road.

We at Avery Greene Honda can’t wait for the arrival of the new 2017 Civic hatchback!

Explained: What Torque Means and How it Compares to Horsepower

auto gearWhen you are looking at the specifications of a vehicle, you are bound to see many numbers and figures, some of which you might not understand. One technical detail that tends to confuse tons of drivers is torque.

If a vehicle produces 300 lb-ft of torque, what exactly does that mean? And how is it different than horsepower?

The term torque describes your car’s ability to accelerate, in layman’s terms. If a vehicle has higher torque, it can accelerate quickly. For example, if a car accelerates from zero to 60 mph in four seconds, it has better torque than a vehicle that requires six seconds to perform the same task.

And while torque is related to horsepower, they are not the same thing. In fact, horsepower is determined by combining a vehicle’s torque with its engine abilities. So really, horsepower is just one, simple number that is easier to swallow than the finer details, creating an easy way to communicate how powerful a car is.

If you are still confused or would like to know more about what torque means in detail, feel free to contact us or visit Avery Greene Honda, where we want you to understand exactly how your car works.

Honda S2000 Roadster Rumored for 2018

Honda’s 70th anniversary is drawing near and the Japanese automaker could be looking to celebrate in a big way. The automaker’s current S660 roadster isn’t coming to American shores and the Acura NSX is out of many drivers’ budgets. That only leaves one option: the Honda S2000 roadster.

Honda launched the original S2000 roadster back in 1998 for its 50th anniversary which gives many enthusiasts hope. As the brand’s 70th anniversary is in 2018, talk of the glorious return is only increasing.

One sticking point of many pessimists is the fact that Honda doesn’t have a platform for the new compact, rear-wheel drive sports car. That isn’t killing the vibe though. Both the S660 roadster and Acura NSX have their own dedicated platforms. Who’s to say Honda can’t do the same for the S2000 roadster?

Car and Driver talked to a source inside the company who stated that the S2000 successor is on its way. Expected to weigh in at less than 3,000 pounds, it will be powered by an altered 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine that’s currently in the Civic Type R.

The source also claims that the S2000 will be built with the Acura NSX at the Performance Manufacturing Center in Ohio.

“A large complement of R&D staff from Japan are already in Ohio working on the car,” the source said, “They have more time now that the NSX is finished.”

Here at Avery Greene Honda, we can’t wait for the arrival of the all-new S2000 roadster!

2016 Honda Accord Arrives in Australia

The 2016 Honda Accord is a top competitor among the midsize sedan segment—and for good reason. Boasting the interior of a luxury car, there aren’t many competitors that can compare. The latest Accord arrived in Australia not long ago with new equipment, styling, and pricing.

Boasting a chromed-out front end, the 2016 Honda Accord keeps up with the latest Honda Civic’s appearance with ease. Riding on a new wheel design, a little goes a long way in this popular car.

In terms of equipment, Honda added the LaneWatch Camera system to the base Accord. That safety technology displays what the driver might not be able to see on the touchscreen. The higher trims come equipped with the Honda Sensing safety suite which includes road departure mitigation and a lane keep assist system, among others.

The Accord VTi comes fully loaded for a little over $23,700 in United States currency. In Australian currency, that same model will run drivers $32,990. The top-end model, the 2016 Honda Accord V6L, costs nearly $37,800 in United States dollars while the same model breaks $52,500 in Australian dollars.

We here at Avery Greene Honda are glad to see more regions getting behind the wheel of the latest Honda Accord!
