Easter Events in San Diego, CA

This probably won’t come as much of a surprise to the majority of our readership, but Easter Weekend here in San Diego, CA was absolutely lovely this year thanks to a warm weekend that came along with plenty of sunshine. That’s one of the perks of living in Southern California in the springtime, we suppose. Honda drivers in and around Lemon Grove, CA can roll the windows down, pop open the sunroof and make the most of a delightful Easter Weekend.

Celebrate Earth Day with Pacific Honda

Later this month, people all over the country will celebrate Earth day, which even the Earth Day website admits has a lot to do with the fact that automobiles were causing some serious environmental issues back in the 1970s when Earth Day was initially founded. “At the time, Americans were slurping leaded gas through massive V8 sedans,” the Earth Day official website writes. “Air pollution was commonly accepted as the smell of prosperity. ‘Environment’ was a word that appeared more often in spelling bees than on the evening news.”

Indoor Adventure Opportunities in San Diego, CA

One of the best things about living in San Diego, CA is that there is so much to do outside, especially when it comes to the types of adventure that our Pacific Honda customers love while behind the wheel of a Honda SUV or crossover. However, there actually is quite a bit of adventure to be found indoors here as well, which means good things for those Honda owners who need an occasional day out of the sunshine.

Pacific Honda Provides Spanish-Speaking Staff

Here at Pacific Honda, it is very important to us that all of our San Diego Honda customers feel 100 percent comfortable when they’re shopping for a new automobile, which is why we have worked so hard over the years to assemble a staff featuring several associates who are fluent in Spanish. 

To have a business in a place like San Diego, CA is a true blessing, not only because of the yearlong beautiful weather but also because the people here and their cultures are so delightfully diverse. In boasting so many Spanish-speaking sales associates, we hope to ensure that everybody in search of a good buying experience gets it. Truly, there is nothing we’d like more. 

In fact, both of our sales managers are fluent in Spanish. New Car Sales Manager Steve Gerardi, for example, is a 19-year employee that speaks Spanish, while our Pre-Owned Sales Manager, Jose Rodriguez, is an 11-year employee who does the same. There are other sales associates who are fluent in Spanish, as well, including Diego Molina, Pierre Gonzales, Alex Orloff, and Eugene Mendoza in the new sales department, and Gustavo Guardiola in the pre-owned sales department. 

In other words, this isn’t a situation where there are just one or two fluent Spanish speakers on staff and Spanish-speaking customers have to hope one of them is working to properly explain what they want in a new Honda vehicle. If we are open, a Spanish speaker is available to help whomever would rather speak in that language, and we hope that goes a long way toward making our customers feel happy and comfortable in dealing with their friendly neighborhood Honda dealers.

Tips for Buying a Used Vehicle in San Diego, CA

For a lot of car shoppers in San Diego, CA, it makes a lot of sense to consider purchasing a used or certified pre-owned Honda automobile rather than a brand new one. Obviously, a vehicle with a few years and a few thousand miles on the odometer is going to be less expensive than one that has just rolled off the assembly line, but just because customers know that they want a used car doesn’t mean they necessarily know the best way to go about shopping for one.
