Local Honda Dealer Enjoys Super Bowl Exposure / Offers Swift Recall Recovery

Katy, TX – One of the most-watched TV programs of the year, the Super Bowl was an ideal environment to draw attention to Honda’s all-new Accord Crosstour. “The Accord Crosstour is Honda’s newest entry into the world’s next-generation, sporty, crossover vehicles,” said Chris Morrison, General Manager of Honda Cars of Katy.

Driving Safety Tips

How To Stay Safe When Driving in the Rain
– author Michael Murray –

Throughout the year, the roads you travel on may become wet and slick, especially during the months when rain showers are abundant. Rainy conditions not only affect the road, but also influence your vehicle and impair your vision while driving. The best way to increase safety during rainy road conditions is to make sure your vehicle is rain-ready and your on-the-road habits are up to par.

Car Maintenance

To better prepare your car for travel in the rain, you should have your tires checked on a regular basis. Once they show signs of balding, you should have them replaced. The deeper the tread on tires, the more traction you will have to work with. At least once a year, windshield wipers should be replaced, as poor wipers are unable to properly clear the water off of a windshield and also greatly impairs vision. Before driving in rainy weather, make sure the headlights, taillights, brake lights, and turn signal lights are in working condition. It is also suggested to carry along an emergency kit in the car.

Proper Road Preparation

To lessen the chances of suffering complications on the road, you should allow enough time to get to your intended destination. When you are running late, never attempt to make up lost time by driving faster on the road – instead – call ahead to alert affected parties. Sometimes, roads collect with water during rainy weather and you should prepare to use an alternate route in such cases.

Driving on the Road

It is important to follow proper driving habits when traveling in rainy conditions. For example, one of the main rules regarding driving in the rain is to keep to slower speeds because oil deposits and rain combine on a road to make conditions extremely slippery. Also, the slower you drive, the more traction you will enjoy. Additional rain driving tips include:

1) Be cautious when approaching intersections, which are known to collect higher amounts of oil deposits.

2) Leave extra space between yourself and the driver ahead to give more time to stop if wet weather impedes your driving.

3) When driving, use your headlights, which helps you to see better, as well as alerts oncoming drivers to the presence of your vehicle.

4) When slowing down, take your foot off the accelerator or lightly brake. Drivers should also avoid sudden stops.

5) Driving in the center lanes (where the road is highest) helps avoid water pools that gather along the curb and between lanes.

6) When passing trucks, take special caution because trucks often produce large sprays, which make it more difficult to see the road and surrounding vehicles.

7) Avoid standing water because varying depths of water may cover up damaging objects, such as potholes.

Earth-Friendly Automotive Tips

Environmental Car Care Tips
– Author: statracing –

(ARA)- Drivers, why not make every day Earth Day?

According to officials with the non-profit National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE), motorists can help the environment and their own finances by changing a few habits. This may come as surprise to those who think they must wait for hybrid or alternate-fueled vehicles to become popular.

ASE recommends regular vehicle maintenance and better driving habits as two can’t-fail action plans. Here are a few specific, easy-to-implement tips from ASE

— Keep the engine running at peak performance — a misfiring spark plug can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent. Replace filters and fluids as recommended in your owner’s manual. A well tuned engine pollutes less and uses less gasoline than a neglected vehicle. Moreover, engine performance problems only get worse if neglected.

— If you do your own repairs, be a good citizen. Dispose of engine fluids and batteries properly. A single quart of used motor oil can pollute thousands of gallons of water. Anti-freeze poured on the ground can poison wildlife and household pets. Some repair facilities accept used fluids and parts. Or call your local government for more information.

— Keep tires properly inflated and aligned. If your air pressure is just a few pounds low, you force the engine to work harder (read: burn more gasoline) just to move the vehicle. Tires that are misaligned also make your vehicle work harder. Consider, too, that poorly maintained tires wear out faster, which means more discards have to be scraped, recycled or sent to the landfill.

— If you are not much of a do-it-yourselfer, find a good technician. Ask friends for recommendations. Check the reputation of the repair shop with your local consumer group. Check out the technicians’ credentials. ASE-certified auto technicians have passed one or more national exams in specialties such as engine performance and air conditioning.

— Have your vehicle’s air conditioner serviced only by a technician certified to handle and recycle refrigerants. Older air conditioners contain ozone-depleting chemicals, which could be released into the atmosphere through improper service.

— Avoid speeding and sudden accelerations. Both habits guzzle gas and put extra wear and tear on your vehicle’s engine, transmission, steering and suspension system, and other components. Use cruise control and anticipate traffic patterns ahead. As a side benefit, your brakes will last longer.

— When waiting for friends or family, shut off the engine. Consolidate daily errands to eliminate unnecessary driving. And, yes, walk more often.

— Remove excess items from the vehicle’s truck, since less weight means better mileage. Remove that roof-top luggage carrier after vacations to reduce air drag.

If appeals to save the environment are not enough, consider this: A poll of ASE-certified auto technicians indicated that a well-maintained vehicle should last 50 percent longer than a neglected one. Good car care saves you money and helps the environment — a win-win situation.

The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) was founded in 1972 as a non-profit, independent organization dedicated to improving the quality of automotive service and repair through the voluntary testing and certification of automotive professionals. ASE-certified technicians wear blue and white ASE shoulder insignia and carry credentials listing their exact areas of certification. Their employers often display the ASE sign.
