Benefits of the HondaTrue Certified & Certified+ Programs

2022 Honda Civic | Avery Greene Honda | Vallejo, CA

There are many reasons to buy a used car from Avery Greene Honda, and one of them is that our Honda dealership in Vallejo participates in the HondaTrue Certified program, which is a good way that families in California can save money.

HondaTrue Certified is Honda’s exclusive certified pre-owned program. While it does bear some similarities to other automakers’ CPO programs, Honda’s system offers some benefits that you probably won’t get from competitors.

For instance, our multi-point inspection assesses 182 items, which is more than average for the industry and shows how carefully we scrutinize our vehicles before approving them. We also offer extra perks with your CPO purchase from Avery Greene Honda, such as roadside assistance for the duration of the limited warranty and up to two free oil changes in the first year of ownership.

Another unique aspect of our CPO program is that we offer two different levels of coverage:

  • HondaTrue Certified vehicles receive 12 months/12,000 miles of non-powertrain warranty coverage. Qualifying vehicles are 5 years or less from their model year (right now, that means 2016-2021 model years).
  • HondaTrue Certified+ vehicles receive 24 months/50,000 miles of non-powertrain warranty coverage. Only vehicles from the most recent 1-2 model years can qualify.

Both certifications contain a 7-year/100,000-mile powertrain coverage beyond the non-powertrain coverage, as well as trip interruption assistance and concierge services.

3 At-Home Date Night Ideas to Try in Vallejo

At-Home Date Night Ideas | Vallejo, CA | Avery Greene Honda

With everything that’s going on in the world right now, it can be difficult to find a way to spend time with your partner in a romantic way. If you’re looking to rekindle the romance with a special date night soon, then you should consider some of these at-home date night ideas.

Recreate your favorite meal. Vallejo, California, is filled with restaurants that offer delicious food. Instead of heading out to your favorite restaurant, though, why not stay at home and try to recreate your go-to meal there? Turn on some music and try your hand at cooking a romantic meal for two.

Take on a home improvement project. Have you had something on your to-do list that you just haven’t managed to get to? The couple that works together, grows together — so tackle that home improvement project for your date night in. Make sure you reward yourself when you’re done with some take out and a movie cuddle session to really make it romantic.

Join a digital class or event. COVID-19 has caused an uptick in digital events and classes, which means you can find something that you both truly enjoy for a night. Whether it’s a cooking class from a well-known chef or an online performance from your local performing arts center, it’s a great way to take a break from your crazy schedule and reconnect with your loved one.

Whether it’s celebrating Valentine’s Day or just because, having an at-home date night can be a nice way to end the week with the one you love. If your idea of a great date night is just sitting in the car and listening to your favorite tunes, check out the great selection of new vehicles at Avery Greene Honda in Vallejo, California.

How to Transport a Christmas Tree

How to Transport a Christmas Tree | Vallejo, CA | Avery Greene Honda

There’s nothing that says it’s the holidays quite like a live tree strung with bright lights and with presents nestled underneath it. If you’re planning on heading out to a tree farm in Vallejo this year, though, it’s important that you know how to transport a Christmas tree home safely. These are the tips you should keep in mind when you pick up your tree.

Have the right vehicle. Before you get your tree, make sure you have the right vehicle. A truck like the Toyota Tacoma or a SUV like the Toyota Highlander are solid options, though any vehicle that has a roof rack is good.

Bring the correct tools with you. You will need the right tools to keep the tree on the roof, since it needs to be extremely secure — especially if you’re traveling at high speeds on a California highway. The right supplies include nylon ratchet straps and a blanket to put under the tree so you can protect your vehicle’s paint job. You should also make sure that your tree is bagged or netted before you load it up on the roof.

Position it properly. When you place the tree on the top of your roof, make sure that the tree’s trunk is facing the front of your vehicle. This makes it more aerodynamic and less likely to fly off the vehicle. You should anchor it to the car right above the bottom branches and towards the top of the tree, too.

Once you know how to transport a Christmas tree, you’ll be able to make spirits bright every season going forward. The team at Avery Greene Honda hopes to make your spirits bright, too, the next time you visit us for service or when you’re shopping for a new vehicle.
