Honda Lineup | Avery Greene Honda | Vallejo, CA

When you think of American vehicles, you might not think of the Honda brand — but you should. That’s because 4 of the top 10 American-made cars in the U.S. are Honda models.

According to Cars.com’s American-Made Index, Honda has more vehicles built in America than any other brand. The Ridgeline, Odyssey, Passport, and Pilot are all manufactured in Lincoln, Alabama. The Honda Accord also made it into the top 20, as it’s built in Marysville, Ohio.

What does it mean to be American-made? It’s more than just where the pieces of the car are assembled; it’s about where those components themselves are sourced and who does the work.

Of the 90 vehicles assessed and ranked by Cars.com, Honda placed in the top 10 multiple times. Evaluators scored each one on five primary categories: assembly location, parts content, engine origins, transmission origins, and U.S. manufacturing workforce.

You can’t judge if a car is domestic or not based on the origin of its badge. You have to consider the U.S. jobs that the automaker produces and where the work is performed for the company.

So if you’re looking for a true American truck or SUV here in Vallejo, California, you can find it at Avery Greene Honda. We have the Ridgeline, Odyssey, Passport, and Pilot in stock, whether you want to buy them new or used.

Honda Pastport April Fool’s Day Joke Brings Back ’90s Nostalgia

Honda Pastport April Fool’s Day

 

On the first of every April, people across the country get up to some major hijinks, thanks to April Fool’s Day. This year, Honda was no exception. The Japanese carmaker got into the April Fool’s Day spirit this year by posting about the brand-new Pastport trim for the 2019 Passport — an entirely fictitious model, but one that we really, really wish were true.

 

The fictional Pastport trim is a ’90s-inspired version of the Passport, which features a throwback interior that highlights popular ’90s features, including automatic windows, a cassette player, and plush micro-fiber seats. It even has a mount for your beeper!

 

“From TV reboots to fashion, the ’90s are making a huge comeback, and we saw an opportunity at Honda for consumers who want uniqueness and simplicity, so we decided to reach back and bring the Pastport to market this spring,” said Zack Tanner, historical innovations manager for Honda. “We think the new Pastport is all that and a bag of chips.”

 

While this nostalgic trim level isn’t actually available, you can come in to Avery Greene Honda to check out the actual Passport. This ruggedly handsome SUV is the newest addition to Honda’s SUV lineup. It comes with an available all-wheel-drive system, standard safety technologies, ample power, and an abundance of interior space to make it a solid choice in its segment.

Explained: What Torque Means and How it Compares to Horsepower

auto gearWhen you are looking at the specifications of a vehicle, you are bound to see many numbers and figures, some of which you might not understand. One technical detail that tends to confuse tons of drivers is torque.

If a vehicle produces 300 lb-ft of torque, what exactly does that mean? And how is it different than horsepower?

The term torque describes your car’s ability to accelerate, in layman’s terms. If a vehicle has higher torque, it can accelerate quickly. For example, if a car accelerates from zero to 60 mph in four seconds, it has better torque than a vehicle that requires six seconds to perform the same task.

And while torque is related to horsepower, they are not the same thing. In fact, horsepower is determined by combining a vehicle’s torque with its engine abilities. So really, horsepower is just one, simple number that is easier to swallow than the finer details, creating an easy way to communicate how powerful a car is.

If you are still confused or would like to know more about what torque means in detail, feel free to contact us or visit Avery Greene Honda, where we want you to understand exactly how your car works.

Spring Car Care Tips

The harsh winter weather can do a seriously number on your car, especially if it’s an older model. In order to get it into tip-top shape for spring, love and attention is all your car needs. Best of all, getting your car ready for the fast-coming warmer weather is easy. Here are a few quick spring car care tips from at Avery Greene Honda’s service department!

  1. under the hoodUnder the Hood – Winter is a harsh season and if you parked outside, it’s time to take a look under the hood. Make sure to check all of your belts and hoses for wear and cracks. Verify that your coolant isn’t too old to ensure your car won’t overheat. If you aren’t car-savvy, a dealership service department can check for you. Better safe than sorry!
  2. Wiper Blades – Ensuring your wiper blades can handle the spring rains should be a top priority. You never know when you’ll be driving through a storm, after all. Look at the blades for cracks and wear. Ice can do a number on your wiper blades so don’t skimp on new ones.
  3. Wash – Last, but not least, wash your car. Dirt, grime, and road salt can build up over winter and each can do damage to your paint if left unattended. A simple car wash will remove most of the residue and leave you with a sparkling car!
