Honda & the EPA Trends Report | Avery Greene Honda | Vallejo, CA

Takeaways from EPA Trends Report for Honda Owners

Sticky post

We at Avery Greene Honda care about keeping our environment healthy and green — including our backyard here in Vallejo, California. That’s why we’re proud to sell Honda models, made by a manufacturer who strives for efficiency and sustainability.

In case you haven’t heard, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency released its 2021 Automotive Trends Report assessing mainstream automakers for their fuel economy and environmental consciousness.

Fuel economy matters more than simply saving you money on gas fill-ups; it has a major impact on the atmosphere and environment by consuming fuel and emitting carbon dioxide. Generally, the more fuel-efficient a vehicle is, the better it is for the environment. And, the less CO2 emitted by a vehicle, the less damage it does to the atmosphere.

That’s why the EPA looked at the average MPG across each OEM’s lineup and the tailpipe CO2 emissions of all models in the lineup of every leading automaker. In both categories, Honda earned the top rank.[1] The Honda brand’s strive toward increasing the fuel economy of its lineup and offering more electrified vehicles in America have been part of the company’s vision for a greener future.

What does this mean for you as a driver in Vallejo, California? That if you want to preserve the beauty and natural elements of the San Francisco Bay Area, you’ll want to drive a vehicle that doesn’t guzzle gas and doesn’t belch a lot of fumes into the air. We at Avery Greene Honda recommend considering a Honda for your next vehicle since the EPA ranked them highly on its 2021 EPA Automotive Trends Report.

[1] This technical report does not necessarily represent final EPA decisions, positions, or validation of compliance data reported to EPA by manufacturers. It is intended to present technical analysis of issues using data that are currently available and that may be subject to change. Historic data have been adjusted, when appropriate, to reflect the result of compliance investigations by EPA or any other corrections necessary to maintain data integrity.

The purpose of the release of such reports is to facilitate the exchange of technical information and to inform the public of technical developments. This edition of the report supersedes all previous versions.

Top California Winter Destinations Near Vallejo

Sticky post

Don’t let the brisk winds and cold temperatures of winter in Vallejo stop you from experiencing this time of year. There are plenty of fun California winter destinations to experience, especially here in the San Francisco Bay Area. Here are some of our favorites.

Mammoth Mountain

A half-day’s drive east of Vallejo in the direction of Yosemite National Park will bring you to Mammoth Mountain. This snow-covered peak is a fantastic skiing destination and a truly wondrous sight to behold this time of year. In fact, the entire Inyo National Forest that surrounds it is picturesque in winter, making the drive as enjoyable as the destination.

Napa and Sonoma

A destination that’s a bit closer to home, California’s famous wine country is just a short drive from Vallejo. Although you can visit these vineyards any time of year, why should you wait until winter? Because all the tourists stay home and locals often have the tasting rooms all to themselves!

True, you won’t be able to sit outside and sip your Chardonnay under the warm summer sun, but the world-class wine tastes just as good in winter as it does any other time of the year.

Now that winter is arriving and our warm California weather is changing to chilly coastal gusts, make sure your car is ready. Bring your Honda SUV or car to Avery Greene Honda for a winter maintenance checkup by our service team.

4 of the Top 10 American-Made Cars Are Honda

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.

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.

Want the benefits of owning a HondaTrue Certified vehicle for your family in Vallejo? Browse our current inventory and find which CPO Honda cars, trucks, and SUVs we have in stock at Avery Greene Honda.

2022 Honda HR-V Arrives at Avery Greene Honda

2022 Honda HR-V | Avery Greene Honda | Vallejo, CA

Shopping for a new crossover in Vallejo, California? Check out the 2022 Honda HR-V. Honda’s smallest SUV is here at Avery Greene Honda, and we want to point out some of its highlights this year.

Although nothing has changed from the 2021 HR-V to the 2022 model year, it’s still worth checking out the latest Honda HR-V. It bears many of the qualities that drivers in the San Francisco Bay area may find useful: high fuel efficiency, easy maneuverability, and a low starting price.

With a shorter wheelbase than some sedans in the Honda lineup, the HR-V is spacious without being large and bulky. Plus, its 2nd-Row Magic Seat® system lets you configure the rear row to collapse, lift, and lay flat as needed to accommodate large cargo items.

The HR-V conserves gas by using a four-cylinder engine with a fuel-saving Eco Assist™ System and efficient continuously variable transmission. This powertrain helps the 2022 Honda HR-V go easy on the gasoline when you’re stuck in stop-and-go traffic by the bridge.

You don’t have to worry about stability on the bay area’s hilly streets, though. Vehicle Stability Assist™ with Traction Control and Hill Start Assist are standard inclusions, giving the HR-V an extra boost when the wheels start to slip. And All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control System™ is a wise addition for extra stability when it’s raining.

We invite you to Avery Greene Honda, where you can take a test drive of the 2022 Honda HR-V and see if it meets your needs.
