Tire Tips

Tire Care Tips to Prepare Your Car for Fall

For many people, it is hard to believe that the only thing between your car and the rode is a little bit of plastic filled with air. While there are many important parts to your car, one of the most important is your tires. These plastic donuts allow you to not only have a smooth ride, but also can increase or decrease your fuel efficiency with ease. Because of the importance of your tires, it’s also important to take care of them. As the weather begins to cool off this fall, make sure you follow these tire care tips to ensure your car will be in prime condition!

Keep an eye on your tire pressure. As the temperature decreases, so can you tire

Keep your tires in top shape with these care tips!

pressure, which can affect your driving in multiple ways. Not only does tire pressure increase your chances of a blow out, but it also decreases your fuel economy significantly. Your steering is also affected by low tire pressure, which causes your car to drift one way or the other, making handling difficult. To ensure your safety and a great driving experience, be sure to check your tire pressure on the same day each month—we promise, you won’t regret it.

Don’t forget to listen to Honest Abe. According to the history books, Abraham Lincoln wasn’t a liar, which is a good thing because he sure knows how to measure tire tread. One of the most important ways to take care of our tires is to check tire tread. All you need to do is take a penny, insert it into the tread with Abe’s head upside down. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, then you need new tires. If your head mostly disappears, you’re in the clear. Who knew a penny—or Abraham Lincoln, for that matter—could be so helpful even now?

Rotate, rotate, rotate! Tire rotation is the top way to ensure your tires have the equal opportunity to wear down. Rotate them every 5,000 to 7,00 miles to maximize the life of your tire—you might even want to do it every time you get your oil changed. It’s an easy way to remember!

Choose the right tires for you. Each car has a recommended tire that is recommended by the manufacturer. Make sure you choose a tire that the company suggests, as it probably works the best with your car. Also, take the climate in which you live into consideration. If you’re driving through snow every winter, purchasing snow tires might be a good idea, whereas they are not a necessity when you live in Southern California.

These tire care tips are sure to keep your tires in top condition. If you have any questions regarding tire maintenance, bring your car in to Avery Greene Honda today for assistance!

Acura TLX

Honda Begins Production of All-New 2015 Acura TLX in Ohio

Honda may be a Japanese automaker, but with the start of production of the all-new 2015 Acura TLX at Honda’s Marysville Auto Plant in Ohio, over 90% of the Acura lineup sold in America is actually also built right here in the United States. The 2015 Acura TLX, Acura’s all-new luxury sedan, brings all kinds of style, convenience, and technology to the luxury market, and we know that American luxury car customers can’t wait to get behind the wheel.

Acura TLX

Honda has started production of the 2015 Acura TLX in Marysville, OH.

“The start of mass production of the TLX marks a new era for our Acura sedan lineup,” said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president and general manager of Acura. “The TLX is built in a world-class facility with a world class workforce and we can’t wait to get this thrilling sedan into the hands of our customers in just a few short weeks.”

The new TLX comes with two separate but equally awesome engines, both with direct injection technology—a 2.4L four-cylinder with 206 horsepower and the bigger 3.5L V6 with 290 horsepower.

2014 Honda Odyssey

The 2014 American-Made Index Includes 3 Honda Vehicles

Every year, Cars.com releases the American-Made Index, which rates “vehicles built and bought in the U.S” on factors that “include the percentage of parts considered domestic under federal regulations, whether the car is assembled in the U.S., and U.S. sales.” Under these rules, obviously, it’s not just the Detroit Big 3 that’s eligible to be named one of the best American-made cars. In fact—Honda happens to boast three vehicles on the 2014 American-Made Index, a ten-car list.

2014 Honda Odyssey

The Honda Odyssey was named one of the most American-made cars by Cars.com!

The Honda Odyssey, which is built in Lincoln, Alabama, comes in at number three on the list, while the Honda Ridgeline and Crosstour slide in at numbers 8 and 9, respectively. The Ridgeline is also built in Lincoln, but the Crosstour is assembled up in East Liberty, Ohio. Honda’s strong presence in North American manufacturing has helped North American sales as well—Honda sold a total of 129,023 Honda and Acura vehicles in June 2014 alone.

So, when you’re brimming with patriotism this Fourth of July weekend, remember that just because Honda’s headquarters aren’t in the States doesn’t mean it’s an un-American brand. In fact, if we dare to say it, we think you just might find that Honda is even more American than those other brands that pretend to bleed red, white, and blue.

Come see us at Avery Greene Honda to buy a truly American-made vehicle today!

Honda Rearview Camera

Honda Sole Automaker to Receive Highway Safety Hero Award

Honda has been named a “Highway Safety Hero” by the Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety—the only company to receive the honor in 2014.

The automaker’s application of safety and driver assistive technologies as standard equipment has helped Honda’s commitment to improving safety for all road users stand out in the U.S. automotive industry.

Honda Rearview Camera

Over 94% of US Honda vehicles sold in 2013 had rearview cameras, making the OEM a Highway Safety Hero.

For example, more than 94% of Honda and Acura models sold in the U.S. in 2013 were equipped with standard rearview cameras, a feat no other automaker has been able to match then or even in 2014. By the 2015 model year, all Honda-made models will be standard with rearview cameras.

Other driver assistive technologies now featured as standard equipment in most Hondas include Forward Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning, which helps reduce accidents by preventing them from ever happening. Honda now also offers an Expanded View Driver’s Mirror and LaneWatch display to help improve driver visibility.
