Honda Civic Tour Begins this Week!

The 2013 Honda Civic Tour featuring pop superstars Maroon 5 kicks off this week in St. Louis, MO.

The tour, which also features opening acts Rozzi Crane, Tony Lucca and PJ Morton on select dates, is Maroon 5’s most successful American tour to date and the most popular Honda Civic Tour since the event began 12 years ago. The tour will last through early October, and will make over 30 stops across the United States.

“We had such a great time touring the U.S. earlier this year and are really looking forward to getting back on the road with the Honda Civic Tour,” said Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine. “We’ve been rehearsing these past couple of days and we can’t wait to spend the rest of the summer with our fans.”

The tour will also feature unique Honda vehicles for vehicles to admire, like a 2013 Honda Civic Si custom designed by the members of Maroon 5. Fans can enter to win a custom Honda vehicle, as well as a trip to Los Angeles or San Diego for one of the final dates of the tour!

Honda fans in the Vallejo and San Francisco areas can catch the Civic tour at several different stops in the area, including Mountain View and Marysville! To learn more about the 2013 Civic, head over to Avery Greene Honda’s website! You can also check us out on Google+ for more Honda news!

Introducing the Honda Mean Mower

Honda is no stranger to the innovative lawn mower game, as evidenced by its robotic lawn mower, Miimo, which was introduced to the European market last year. The world’s most creative automaker is back for more with the “Mean Mower,” a lawn mower designed in conjunction with Top Gear magazine.

What’s so special about the Mean Mower? For starters, it can reach speeds up to 130 mph. That’s right: Honda is making it possible to get a speeding ticket while doing household chores.

The Mean Mower began humbly as a production Honda HF2620 Lawn Tractor before Top Gear and Honda got their hands on it. The 20 hp motor was tossed aside right away and replaced with a 1,000 cc V-twin good for 109 hp, extracted from a Honda VTR1000 Firestorm sport bike. The sport bike’s transmission was also added to the Mean Mower, and the boys at Top Gear even reworked the suspension so that this baby could handle ATV wheels.

This lawn mower, as strange as it sounds, is race ready. It can rocket from 0 to 60 in four seconds—faster than most cars on the market. Despite all this power, the Mean Mower can still do what it was born to do: cut grass. Of course, it can’t do it at 130 mph, but the cutting cable, which spins up to 4,000 rpm, can operate at 15 mph and below, twice as fast as traditional stock mowers.

Unfortunately, Honda has announced that this high-intensity grass-chopper is a one-of-a-kind, merely created to show off the brand’s creative juices and its sporty heritage. But if you’re in the market for something with that sporty performance, stop by Avery Greene Honda today: we’ve got lots of high-octane options to choose from (though, full disclosure, they can’t quite cut your lawn—you’ll still have to do that yourself!).

Helpful Tips: Safe Summer Driving

This summer, you’re likely to be tempted (as many are) to take your Honda out for a drive. Maybe you’re planning a big drive across the country, or perhaps you’ll have the sudden urge to take a trip across town one evening; whatever the case, something about warm summer weather lends itself to driving.

Summertime, however, is not without its fair share of dangers on the road. Follow these helpful tips from Avery Greene Honda to ensure that you stay safe on all your car rides this summer!

  • Before taking off on a long road trip, be sure to have your vehicle checked for any  problems. The last thing you want on your summer vacation is a car issue cutting into your relaxation time!
  • Be careful of pedestrians on the roads!
    While some flock to their cars in the summer, many others take to walking, biking or other recreational activities. Watch out for potential hazards that may come from people outside soaking up the sun.
  • Summertime also means teen drivers. With school out, many more inexperienced drivers will be hitting the roads in July and August. Be cautious and patient on the road, especially at night.

Avery Greene Honda of Vallejo, CA wishes you safe driving this summer! Should you run into any trouble on the road, remember that Avery Greene Honda maintains a fantastic service department that can assist you with everything from part replacements to detailed repairs. We also maintain an excellent selection of used cars at great prices near San Francisco, Fairfield, Concord and Napa!
