What does Brand Loyalty do for you at Honda?

costomer loyalty crossword

Brand Loyalty can be an important part of your decisions to buy products. We all have trusted brands that we have used for years, and it’s hard to switch to something else because we know that the specific product or brand has done us well. It’s no different with cars.

It’s a very common situation to have clients come in that are on their 4th or 5th Honda. In some cases, Honda was their first car, and they have stuck with the brand ever since. The reliability and trust with the company and the product, as well as the VIP treatment that they get from their local parts and service centre keeps them coming back.

Honda works hard to keep clients coming back. As a manufacturer, they make sure that they listen to what their clients have to say about their vehicles, and make any changes needed to keep giving you what YOU want. They also do an amazing job with financing discounts for returning customers to help keep costs down on a quality and dependable car.

Any time you move from a Honda Finance to another Honda Finance, being either a Lease or a Purchase Finance, you automatically get a 1% discount on your financing rate. During amazing events like the Honda Checkered Flag event where Honda is offering 0.99%, YEAH!!! You do the math.

To all of you that currently drive a Honda…Thank you.
To anyone that has been considering a Honda, or has never had the experience of driving a Honda…let’s talk. Let’s start to build loyalty.

Honda Rally Racing…In a Fit?!

036948-honda-turns-up-heat-international-rally-queensland.1-lg

In other parts of the world, the Honda Fit is called the Honda Jazz.
And in other parts of the world, the Honda Jazz is used as a full blast rally car!!! Intense!

If you have come in and talked to me about the Fit, you know that I’m completely amped about this platform. I think the potenial of being a track race car is amazing, and it would be a blast to slam through the gears, but I never even considered it as a rally car.

Check out this video to see the Honda Jazz Rally in action.

How Quickly can I get my car?

20140610-140240-50560567.jpg

How quickly can I get my car?

Another question that I am asked often from my guests is, “How quickly can I get my car?”

Most of the time with buying a new car, there is a minimum of 48-hours from when you purchase the car until when you can pick it up. This time is needed to make sure we can get all of the papers, inspection, and detail in order to not only make sure that the car can be correctly registered, but also to make sure everything about the car needs the Honda standard, and a full detail is completed to clean it up from shipping.

Since I started in car sales, I have learned actually how many steps a car has to go through in order to be ready for you. It’s actually quite amazing how all of the departments work together to make sure everything is smooth for you. The goal is to remove as much work from you as possible to get your new car. This includes our Finance and Insurance Team getting notifying your insurance company of the change, and getting your license plates updated.

But now, back to the original question. How long can it take?

Well, if we have the vehicle you are looking for in stock, the average turn around time is 48-hours. If we have to locate the vehicle from another storage lot somewhere else in the province, we are sometimes at the mercy of those inventory managers picking up their phones and/or calling us back to confirm they still have what we are looking for. Then, once we know it’s there, we dispatch drivers to secure the vehicle for you. This can add a few days to the process.

And in other situation, we have the vehicle you are looking for already ordered and incoming on a truck. When that happens, we will have a projected date for you, so you will have a better idea as to when it may come in.

Of course…at the end of the day, the Henley Honda Team is 100% driven to get you into your new car. At the end of the day, we cannot get paid for our work until your car is delivered, so we are just as motivated as you are to make the connection.

The best way to get the car you want quickly is to purchase early in the production year to make sure there is a large inventory of color and model. Another great way is to have a couple color options so that we are able to get you projected dates on how quickly we can prepare a vehicle for you.

History makes it so real

1973-honda-civic-photo-365077-s-520x318

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.

You are NOT stuck in your current vehicle. I can help

carinsand

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.

Honda Fit and Zipcar

screen-shot-2014-05-02-at-7-54-12-am

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.

What is Apple Car Play?

Car Play

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.

To check out the new line of Honda’s, connect with me.

Honda Design is more than skin deep

You always look under the hood, but how often to you get to look under the car?

Honda has always focused on vehicle design that is effective and innovative. It’s not always prettiest vehicle offered on the market, but underneath it’s skin is an army of designers with a mission on create a vehicle that will outlast the competition while saving fuel and exceeding your performance expectations.

Whenever possible, I like to check out the chassis and design of parts that you can’t see. The things that for most vehicles are an after thought. This is where you can truly see the level of detail that a manufacturer puts into their cars.

Next time your car is in for service, ask to see what it looks like underneath. Do you see the level of attention that you expect in your car?

Come and check out what Honda has to offer
