A few weeks ago, when Honda revealed the 2017 Ridgeline truck to the public for the first time, Honda also announced that the redesigned Ridgeline would star in this year’s Super Bowl ad spot. Now, just ahead of the big game, a sneak peek of the commercial is officially available on YouTube. If you love Shaun the Sheep and classic Queen tracks, you’ll definitely love this. If you don’t…well, watch it here and form your own opinion.
When you’re searching for reviews and information about a new vehicle, where do you look? Our Honda model research page is a great starting point, but lots of new car shoppers also rely on third-party car review sites like Kelley Blue Book and The Car Connection. This is a great way to learn more about a vehicle you’re interested in — these reviewers do their homework. That’s why we’re so happy when Honda vehicles get glowing recommendations and awards.
Last week, we showed you how to use Apple CarPlay in the 2016 Honda Accord. But did you know that even if you choose an Accord model without this brand-new feature, you can still make hands-free phone calls from your vehicle? Here’s how to set up Bluetooth HandsFreeLink in the 2016 Honda Accord.
What should you do if your car starts to shake while you drive? At our service center, we’ll work as quickly as we can to figure out the problem and get your car sailing smoothly once again. However, this can be an especially stressful car issue for drivers to deal with. There are several different types of problems that could be making the car vibrate, and some are more serious than others. Waiting to find out what’s wrong with your car — and how long it’ll take to fix — is never a pleasant experience. So we thought we’d take a minute to talk about why your car could be shaking, and what kind of repairs might need to get done to fix it.
Remember back in the day, when going on a road trip meant you’d have to write down turn-by-turn directions before you left home? Remember Mapquest? Remember when the cliché about men never wanting to stop and ask for directions actually meant something? Yeah, we don’t really miss that last one. These days, with more and more affordable cars including built-in navigation systems, the act of stopping to ask for directions — and the outdated gender stereotype that went with it — is quickly becoming a thing of the past. So, lately, we’ve had some customers wondering: does the Honda Civic have navigation?
If you look in the owner’s manual for your car, you’ll see a recommendation for what kind of oil to use when you get an oil change. But that’s not the end of the story. For example, if you drive a 2016 Honda Civic, it’ll tell you to use Genuine Honda premium-grade 0W-20. Okay, well, what does that mean? Will my engine explode if I don’t use Genuine Honda? Will it run better if I pay extra for the pricey synthetic option? What’s the difference, anyway? At our service center, we think it’s important to have good answers for these kinds of questions. Even if you never plan on changing your own oil, it’s nice to know a little more about what’s going on under the hood. We’ve got answers.
Which Honda SUV is the right fit for your lifestyle? A couple weeks back, we looked at how much weight the HR-V, CR-V and Pilot can tow. However, that didn’t give us much of a chance to showcase everything the Honda HR-V can do. And that isn’t fair — after all, the HR-V is the newest member of Honda’s SUV lineup, so shoppers might not know much about it yet, compared to the best-selling CR-V. It’s kind of like the high school star quarterback’s little brother. For the sake of younger siblings everywhere, let’s give the HR-V its own chance to show off! With a fair side-by-side comparison, you’ll see plenty of reasons to choose either one!

Yesterday, we brought you Honda’s big announcement from the Detroit Auto Show: the unveiling of the brand-new design for the 2017 Honda Ridgeline pickup truck. But there’s another exciting Detroit Auto Show news item this week that’s worth sharing. We didn’t want to steal the redesigned Ridgeline’s spotlight yesterday, but this announcement actually happened first, at the very start of the show. The 2016 Honda Civic was announced as the winner of the prestigious North American Car of the Year Award.
