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.

2020 Honda CR-V Named Green SUV of the Year

2020 Honda CR-V

Efficiency and family-friendliness come together in the 2020 Honda CR-V. That’s why this crossover was recently awarded the title of 2020 Green SUV of the Year from Green Car Journal.

The 2020 CR-V is now on sale at dealerships across America, while the CR-V Hybrid is arriving at dealerships soon, making it the first-ever Honda Hybrid SUV in the American market. The CR-V will come standard with the Honda SensingÒ suite of safety technologies and a more powerful powertrain on the LX trim: a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder.

This is the sixth time that Honda has earned this recognition from Green Car Journal. Last year, the 2019 Insight earned the Green Car of the Year award, joining the 2012 Civic Natural Gas, 2014 Accord, and 2018 Clarity Plug-in Hybrid, Clarity Electric, and Clarity Fuel Cell. The 2016 HR-V also earned the title of Green SUV of the Year.

The addition of the 2020 CR-V Hybrid model is part of the brand’s pursuit of its eco-friendly goal, which is to halve its global CO2 emissions by 2050. To do so, Honda aims to electrify two-thirds of its global automobile sales by 2030. In 2019, the brand’s American electrified vehicle sales were up 34% from last year with more than 50,000 hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and fuel-cell vehicles out on the road.

Just because you need an SUV doesn’t mean you can’t drive green. Learn more about the efficient 2020 Honda CR-V at Avery Greene Honda.

Honda Wins Overall Brand Honor in ALG Residual Value Awards

Honda Awards

When you purchase a new car, it’s likely you want a car that will retain its value over time. That’s where the ALG Residual Value Awards* come in. Every year, these awards honor those vehicles that will hold the highest percentage of their Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). This year, Honda received the top spot in these awards in the Mainstream Brand category, highlighting the brand’s dedication to providing consumers with the best value possible.

“Strong residual values are the foundation of successful automotive brands,” said Eric Lyman, Chief Industry Analyst at ALG. “The residual value is important for consumers to take into consideration before making their next vehicle purchase because we know that depreciation is the single biggest cost of vehicle ownership.”

In addition to earning the title as the Best Overall Mainstream Brand, five Honda vehicles were also recognized in their respective segments. The 2020 Passport received the award in the Midsize Utility 2-Row category, while the Pilot was recognized in the Midsize Utility 3-Row category.

Along with these two models, the Accord took the top spot in the Midsize Car for the third consecutive year, while the 2020 Odyssey retained its first-place spot in the Minivan category. Finally, the Subcompact Car segment was won by the 2020 Fit for the sixth year in a row.

Get Where You Need to Go with These Holiday Road Trip Travel Tips

Road Trip

Whether you’re heading over the river or through the woods to your parents’ house this year, it’s important that you stay safe on your way there. Keep these holiday road trip travel tips in mind as you head out to your holiday destination.

Plan ahead. Before you head out on the open road, make sure you map your route out in advance. Make sure you have any roadside assistance contact information in case you find yourself stranded on the side of the road, and make sure that you prepare yourself for any holiday traffic, since the holidays are a popular time of the year for road travel.

Get your car checked. You don’t want to get stranded on the side of the road with an overheated engine or other issue. Bring your car to the Avery Greene Honda service center for a routine check-up before your trip to ensure your car is in working order.

Remember common-sense rules. To keep yourself — and your family — safe throughout the trip, try to remember some important unwritten rules. Remind your children not to talk to strangers when you’re at rest stops and accompany them into the bathroom. Also, tuck any valuables away in your trunk or in a covered storage area to reduce the likelihood of a break-in.

Wherever you’re going, have a safe road trip and happy holidays!
