While most car companies are constantly searching for ways to keep their new cars ahead of the curve for safety awards the year they are released, not many think of the long term. Yes, a car can be safe the way you buy it, but how does that rate to the safety standards of tomorrow when the car get’s on in years?
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has recently named a line of older Honda Vehicles as ‘safer choices for Teen Drivers’ in a recent list they published, and went on to say, “Honda is the most durable and longest lasting brand in it’s class.”
This says a lot for Honda. Not only are they providing a top quality and safe vehicle today, but it is still gaining recognition years down the road.
Looking at a new or used Honda for you and your family?
I love Motorsports. On-Road Racing, Off-Road Racing, doesn’t matter. So imagine how excited I get when you combine the two? Oh yeah!!!
Rally Racing has always been one of my favorites. But stage rally is not doing much in North America as far as running events and broadcasting on TV. But that’s where the Global Rally Cross comes in.
Global Rally Cross is more of a circuit style Rally race that is catching on all over the world. Races are usually held on a built race track before another major race event like Nascar. Add a little dirt and some jumps, and tada!!! You get Global Rally Cross.
Racing like this has helped attract some of the world’s best drivers like Tanner Foust, Brian Deegan, Rhys Millen, and Travis Pastrana, as well as some of the worlds best sponsors like Red Bull, Rockstar, and Subaru.

Everything and every one has a history. A series of events that brought them to now and helped them form into the person or the company that they are today. But history can tell a lot about a person or a company…so pay attention.
Since I have been working with Honda, I have been doing a lot of research into the past. It’s important for me to work with a company that feel good about and a company that I can share values with. Honda is 100% that company.
The history and the culture created with Honda is amazing. The company has literally been formed out of ashes and through hard work and determination, become one of the world leaders in motor products. Not just with cars, but also with motorcycles, and small engines.
Check out this video that touches a little on the History and how Honda was formed. It’s an oldie, but it’s still fun to watch.

Whoa!!! You mean you can win your Civic? Sweet!!
This month, Honda is going to be giving away a Honda Civic every week. That means that 4 lucky people that purchase, finance, or lease their Civic this month are going to drive away with a cheque to cover the balance of their car. Amazing!
The best part is, if you don’t win in the early weeks of the month, you are still able to win one of the later draws. That means, the earlier in the month you buy your car, the more chances you get to win.
Book an appointment with me to check out the new Civic.
What’s the point of all of this amazing engineering if you can’t have fun with it?
I love when people do fun things with engines. Just like back in the days of Tim Allen and Home Improvement…people are always doing fun stuff with lawn equipment.
Check out this video or the Honda Mean Mower. Yeah, that’s right…1000cc motor loaded in a riding mower making 109 HP.
You may get a couple speeding tickets, but at least you can pay for the fines with all the lawns you cut along the way.
Needs change from day to day, and this can include the need for a new or different vehicle. Sometimes, people are in Finance or Leases that they don’t believe they can get out of, or they feel trapped. That’s not a good thing.
Every day, I hear from guests that say, “I wish I could get out of my lease for me truck.” And they are forcing themselves to pay for a vehicle or a situation they don’t want to be in. You don’t have to!
Come and talk to me on how I can get you out of your finance or lease and into a new vehicle that fits your current wants and needs. I did it, and I’m in a better situation for it.
If you live in a big city, you will have seen the Zipcar. It’s a cool service that you can subscribe and have access to cars and services around the cities. It’s an amazing alternative to owning and maintaining your own car.
Renting a Zipcar guarentees you a great vehicle and other perks like upfront parking. It’s a great opportunity to use a car when needed, and not worry about it the rest of the time.
Zipcar is about to launch a new ONE>WAY feature to their service, giving you the ability to drive from one location to the next, and drop the car off without planning on returning it to your original pick up location. For this new service, the Zipcar is enrolling the help of the new Honda Fit.
We know that the Fit is an exceptional value. It’s an amazing vehicle for a great price, and now quality companies like Zipcar are getting on board with the Fit just to solidify how valuable this car really can be.
I love it…come and check out the new 2015 Fit by the end of June, or I can call you as soon as I know it’s coming in to schedule an appointment with you.
Since I was old enough to know what they were, cars have always been my motivation and drive to do better. They have always been my milestone goals and target prize for excellent performance.
It’s good to know that I’m not the only one. It seems that the world is addicted to cars, and the things that you can do to cars. It inspires art and drives innovation to the next level.
Check out this video of a drift battle between a car, and yeah…a semi!!! Wow! It’s amazing what can be done with engineering and the need to do something silly.
Since the official announcement of the new Apple Car Play in Honda cars, I have fielded a lot of questions about exactly what Apple Car Play is, what it does, and when it will be available.
Apple Car Play is an amazing addition to the technology placed in the Honda cars. It helps create an even more seamless integration between the cars interface and the Apple iPhone. It will offer full voice control over the phone through the cars interface, as well as additional car/phone functions through the touch screen in the dash.
Overall, the Apple Car Play is a big step forward to making our cars mesh better with our every day lives by connecting with our smartphones…which for some, have become a very important part of our communication and organization.
We expect to see Apple Car Play in the new Honda’s by the end of the year.
