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.

If you’re interested in any version of the 2021 Honda Civic Type R, please give Avery Greene Honda a call to let us know!

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.

How to Sanitize Your Car for a Germ-Free Ride

Clean And Sanitize Your Car

From heading out to the grocery store to going out for your daily exercise, your car can become a hub for germs. Now, more than ever, it’s likely that you want to make sure your car is as clean as possible. To help you keep your car clean, follow these tips on how to sanitize your car.

Use gloves. Before you begin cleaning your car, you should consider wearing gloves. Gloves will help protect your hands from any harsh chemicals that might be used. They will also keep you from picking up germs. Remember, though, if you’re using gloves to avoid touching your face, phone, or other surfaces outside your vehicle while you have your gloves on.

Scrub your surfaces. There are a lot of surfaces that you might touch while you’re driving your car, including your radio, door handles, steering wheel, and shift knob. Pay these surfaces special attention while you’re sanitizing your car. Use disinfectant wipes or warm, soapy water to keep your surfaces clean.

Clean your car’s upholstery. Your car’s soft surfaces, such as your seat upholstery or floor mats, can gather germs easily – especially if you’ve sneezed or coughed in their general direction. That’s why you should use appropriate upholstery cleaners for your car’s soft surfaces, giving them a good scrub.

It’s more important than ever to know how to sanitize your car. For more extensive car maintenance, schedule a service appointment at Avery Greene Honda.

Honda Ventilator Parts Created for Dynaflo

Ventilator Parts

Honda is lending a helping hand to those in need. The carmaker has started manufacturing and delivery vital parts for ventilators to Dynaflo Inc. of Reading, Pennsylvania. These Honda ventilator parts help Dynaflo produce their diaphragm compressors, which are a key component of portable ventilators, which are used in hospitals and by first responders throughout the United States.

Honda and Dynaflo have set a goal to produce 10,000 compressors per month when production reaches capacity, and will continue to do so through the end of August.

“Honda associates have successfully transformed a portion of our technical training center into an assembly line that will help support the urgent need to produce ventilator components,” said Rick Schostek, Executive Vice President, Honda North America, Inc. “With our supply of these key components to Dynaflo, we hope to help address one of the most pressing needs within the COVID-19 crisis.”

The production team for these parts has transformed 6,000 sq ft of the brand’s Technical Development Center in Marysville, Ohio, utilizing their production know-how to quickly ramp up production over the first few weeks. Honda associates are also working closely with Dynaflo personnel to ensure best practices in compressor assembly, allowing them to build and quality test the devices before they are shipped.

Thanks to Honda, thousands of first responders were able to get the ventilators they needed. If what you need is a car, though, then you should head on to Avery Greene Honda!

2021 Honda Odyssey Debuts Industry-First Rear Seat Reminder Camera

2021 Honda Odyssey Rear Seat Reminder Camera

The Honda Odyssey is a solid option in the minivan segment, and it doesn’t look like that will change any time soon. For the 2021 model year, the Odyssey offers more family-friendly upgrades, from a fresh exterior redesign and premium interior appointments to more technologies — including an industry-first Rear Seat Reminder camera.

For the 2021 Honda Odyssey, the Rear Seat Reminder system will be integrated with the vehicle’s CabinWatch® rear-seat camera system. This means the system will prompt you to check your back seats before exiting the vehicle, first with an audible alert and also with a warning message on the driver’s display.

For the Touring and Elite trims, the system will also display the rear seating area on the Display Audio screen, giving you a view of your back seat — something no other Rear Seat Reminder system in the industry does.

Along with this new system, the Odyssey will come with more powerful, efficient LED headlights, a redesigned grill with a chrome strip, and a redesigned lower front fascia. Inside, it will have second-row seatbacks that will fold flat so you can easily remove them.

Honda has also updated the Odyssey’s Honda Sensing® suite of driver-assistance technologies, offering new features like Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow and Pedestrian Emergency Braking.

Honda is always at the forefront of safety innovations. Visit Avery Greene Honda to learn more about how Honda vehicles keep you and your family safe.

Honda LogR™ Data App Helps Improve Driving Skills

2020 Honda Civic Type R LogR Data App

When you’re out on the track in your 2020 Honda Civic Type R, you will soon be able to get all the performance data you want simply with a few taps of your smartphone screen. Honda has recently announced an all-new datalogging app called Honda LogR®, which will help Type R drivers better understand their driving skills.

The Honda LogR® allows drivers to interact with it in three ways. The first is a Performance Monitor that allows the driver to track vehicle information on the Display Audio screen. Log Mode is the second function, which records lap times on the track. Then, there’s Auto Score, which is a function that monitors braking, acceleration, and steering to generate a “driving smoothness” score to help encourage smoother driving.

When you’re outside the car, you can even use the phone app to delve deeper into the data. The Log Mode and Auto Score functions allow you to look at previous drivers, performance traces, and replays of your drive using GPS mapping and detailed vehicle information.

The LogR® app will have exclusive access to the Civic Type R’s onboard computer, which other third-party datalogging apps don’t offer. This means you can get more in-depth detail about your vehicle’s performance than these aftermarket systems would offer.

This app will work exclusively with the 2020 Type R for both iPhone® and Android™ users and should be available to download sometime this spring. If you still need a Civic Type R, though, visit Avery Greene Honda!

Spring Car Care Tips to Leave Your Car Squeaky Clean

Spring Car Care Tips

Spring has sprung, which means it’s time to do some spring cleaning. While you’re bleaching your bathtub and scrubbing your skirting boards, make sure you also set aside time to take care of your car. These are some spring car care tips to help keep your car running smoothly.

Clean the exterior. While it doesn’t drop below freezing often in Vallejo, the colder weather can still do a number on your car’s exterior. From frost coating your windshield to sea air ruining your exterior paint, it’s important to give your vehicle’s exterior a good scrub at the end of the colder months.

De-clutter the interior. It’s easy to forget to clean out your car frequently when you have a busy schedule. Now is the time to get rid of any litter strewn about and wipe down your dashboard. You should consider getting out your vacuum and giving your carpets and upholstery a deep clean, too.

Check your tires. Warmer temperatures mean your tires’ pressure will begin to rise. Check that your tire pressure is within the recommended range. You should also check your tires for tread blading, bulges, or bumps.

Change your wipers out. Whether it’s heavy rain fall or fog, you want your visibility to be the best it can be. That’s why you should change out your windshield wipers now, so you get a streak-free windshield in inclement weather.

If spring cleaning isn’t your thing, bring your car in for service at Avery Greene Honda! Our expert technicians will ensure it’s ready for the warmer weather.

You will also still get the family-friendly features and ample interior space you have come to expect from the CR-V.
