Tips for A Safe and Healthy Thanksgiving in 2020

Tips for a Safe Thanksgiving | Avery Greene Honda | Vallejo, CA

Thanksgiving is a time for togetherness and being thankful, but this year it might look a bit different. Because safety guidelines throughout California are constantly changing to keep everyone safe, it’s important to consider making a new tradition this year for a safe and healthy Thanksgiving 2020.

Think small. Rather than having a big feast filled with family and friends, it might be a good idea to have a small dinner with only the people who live in your household. If you truly want to have a big celebration, you can always bring everyone together virtually, sharing recipes that other usually make and eating while chatting online.

Take precautions. If the guidelines in Vallejo allow you to have people over, you should take extra precautions to ensure you all stay healthy. Consider eating outdoors and wear a mask if there are multiple people around. Also, you should wash your hands throughout the cooking process — more than you usually do — to help prevent the spread.

Understand your space. Measure the available space you have and only invite the number of people that will fit into the space while social distancing.

Avoid high-risk activities. According to the CDC, there are many high-risk activities that are common during the Thanksgiving season that should be avoided. This includes going out into crowded stores for Black Friday shopping, attending crowded parades, or taking part in a crowded race.

From everyone here at Avery Greene Honda in Vallejo, we wish you a happy, healthy, and safe Thanksgiving 2020.

The system also provides you with a weekly score card, which averages your scores for the week. This score card also comes with specific tips towards your driving habits, making suggestions on how to improve your driving ability.

A new design. The Odyssey has received a restyling both inside and out. Its front-end design has been completely revised, putting forth a more modern, sleeker silhouette.

More family-friendly tech. For the first time ever, the Odyssey now comes with a Rear-Seat Reminder system. This system lets you know if you have left something in the rear seats. It can even be integrated into the Odyssey’s available CabinWatch® system.

An upgraded Honda Sensing® system. This minivan still comes standard with the Honda Sensing® suite of safety technologies, and it’s seen some upgrades. Now, it can follow other cars at a set distance at low speeds. The emergency braking system has also improved, allowing it to brake for pedestrians and recognize traffic signs.

Even more luxury. On the Touring and Elite trims, the Odyssey now comes with a new third-row USB charging port. This means the minivan has up to five ports for charging devices.

Honda is building on its performance heritage for the all-new 2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition. This high-performance ride will offer dynamic power and athletic handling, which it demonstrated earlier this summer when it set a new front-wheel-drive track record on the iconic Suzuka Circuit in Japan.

The Civic Type R Limited Edition set a new Suzuka record for lap time, completing the circuit in just two minutes and 23.993 seconds. More impressively, the Type R Limited Edition beat the track time of exponentially more expensive performance cars without any performance enhancements or modifications.

While the Type R Limited Edition hasn’t been released yet in the American market, it will be offered soon with only 600 units available. This makes the bold model a rare ride, likely making it a future collector’s item.

For this special-edition model, the Honda brand used lightweight, forged aluminum BBS wheels and reduced its weight by up to 46 pounds. It comes with Michelin® Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires and recalibrated steering, giving maximum control and feedback. The Civic Type R Limited Edition will only be available in a unique Phoenix Yellow exterior paint.

If you want to join the excitement of owning a 2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition and live around Vallejo, California, then make sure you stop into Avery Greene Honda. We’ll do our best to help you get behind the wheel of one of these ultra-limited, record-breaking performance cars.

Honda Redirects Funds to Support HBCUs

HBCU | Avery Greene Honda | Vallejo, CA

When the 31st annual Honda Campus All-Start Challenge was cancelled at the end of March, Honda decided to rise to the occasion and use the funds allocated for that program in another way. Honda determined that giving back was the best way to use the money, joining together with 58 Historically Black Colleges and Universities to make the biggest community impact possible. With its support of these HBCUs, Honda hopes to help those in need during the ongoing pandemic.

“In these unprecedented times, our commitment to HBCUs is stronger than ever,” said Steve Morikawa, vice president of Corporate Relations and Social Responsibility at America Honda. “We know that recent events have presented challenges for HBCU communities, and we’re working closely with HBCU presidents and local leaders on ways to best serve their communities.”

The funds from this Honda commitment will help the COVID-19 relief initiative in a variety of ways. For instance, the HBCUs are using these funds to address specific needs in their communities, including food insecurity and medical support for the homeless, families, and senior citizens. The donations from Honda also help support frontline healthcare workers in HBCU communities by covering medical supplies and personal protective equipment.

Honda has provided $325,000 to HBCUs since May 1, allowing them to serve 108 organizations in 20 states.

Avery Greene Honda in Vallejo couldn’t be prouder to represent a brand committed to supporting communities in need.

2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition Sells Out in Four Minutes

2020 Honda Civic Type R

There’s no denying that the 2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition is in high demand. This special-edition Civic recently went on sale on the Honda Canada website — and every one of the 100 units that are available in that region was sold in just four minutes.

This is the same thing that occurred in the United Kingdom, which only had 20 units available.

Honda is only selling 1,000 units of the Civic Type R Limited Edition with 600 of them going to the United States market. Each one of these special-edition Civic’s is painted in Phoenix Yellow, and you must reserve one with a $1,000 deposit — though we don’t know how much the vehicle will cost in the US.

In the UK, the Civic was listed as £39,995, which amounts to about $46,600. The US-spec vehicle will have some different features than the European option, including an air-conditioning system.

Other features that the Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition will offer include a weight reduction, 20-inch BB alloy wheels, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 semi-slick tires, an Alcantara steering wheel, and a new counter-weighted teardrop gear knob. Overall, it’s expected that the Limited Edition model will cost about $10,000 more than the regular Civic Type R.

Honda Face Shield Donation Gives 130,000 to Medical Staff

Face Shield For Medical Staff

As COVID-19 continues to spread around the world, Honda is taking a step towards helping support the healthcare workers who are on the front line. The Japanese carmaker recently made a donation of face shields to medical staff around the United States.

The Honda face shield donation will provide more than 130,000 shields to those that need it. The face shields were manufactured at Honda Engineering North America in Marysville, Ohio. This manufacturing plant used its existing plastic injection molding equipment to create the clear plastic face shields that are a vital part in protecting healthcare workers from the virus.

Honda of Canada Manufacturing is also helping produce these face shields, providing the frame needed to keep the shields on. The two companies have already created 70,000 face shields to 305 medical facilities in 45 states, and plan on making at least 60,000 more.

“It was a comprehensive effort with our Honda design and manufacturing teams working together to quickly solve this challenge,” said Eric Walli, regional planning leader of Honda North America. “We were looking at materials, doing scientific work to understand if what we put in a face shield would be safe for humans to wear, an all of this was occurring as we sought to rapidly begin and then ramp up production.”

Along with these face shields, Honda has also contributed in other ways. For instance, it turned multiple Odyssey minivans into coronavirus testing transport vans in Detroit.

If Honda cars are more your things than Honda face shields, visit Avery Greene Honda and we’ll get you set up!
