Here Comes the 2017 Honda Odyssey!

On the one hand, the 2017 Honda Odyssey is, for the most part, exactly the same automobile as the 2016 Honda Odyssey minus a few modest upgrades, but on the other hand buying the newest version of any automobile means more value, more longevity, and a more perfect product of engineering. There really aren’t any immediate plans for a redesigned version of this esteemed minivan in any of the forthcoming model years, so those looking for a brand new minivan have plenty to be excited about when it comes to this vehicle. It might not be completely redesigned, but it’s new, and there absolutely is something to that.

Why It’s Smart to Buy a Used Honda Vehicle

There used to be this stigma about used vehicles that they were untrustworthy, just begging to break down over and over again and ultimately transform into the dreaded “lemon.” These days, however, the pre-owned and certified pre-owned industry is completely different from what it may have been 20 or 30 years ago. Thanks to improved build quality from automakers like Honda and the advent of certified pre-owned programs, which tack on extended warranties and rigorous testing before sale, there has been no better time to buy a used automobile at our friendly neighborhood Honda dealership in San Diego, CA. They always have represented value for San Diego, CA customers, but these days, they represent both value and quality.

Honda Offers Free Honda Road Readers App

It used to be that if kids wanted to entertain themselves in the car, they’d have to just stare out the window and play the License Plate Game or I Spy, but today there are so many more opportunities to keep them busy. From cell phones to tablets to MP3 players, kids have no shortage of activities to keep occupied on both long road trips and standard daily commutes, but Honda engineers understand that there are better uses of young people’s time than just watching movies or blaring music. There are books to be read, as well, which is why the automaker has put so much into the Honda Road Readers app, available right now to San Diego, CA Honda customers.

Honda Finally Wraps Up Serial One Project

Perhaps you’ve heard that Honda vehicles are incredibly reliable autos on the face of the planet. And if not, may we present to you the recently restored 1969 Honda N600, the first Honda vehicle to puts its tires to American pavement. Admittedly, the version of Honda N600 that still runs has spent the better part of 2016 undergoing massive restoration, but the fact that a vehicle this old could find itself up and running at all just goes to show how great the automaker was even in its infancy here in the United States.

Updated 2017 Honda CR-V Debuts

In case we haven’t mentioned this enough over the course of the last several months, the Honda CR-V is proving to be a popular vehicle in the auto industry, which means the Honda brand probably could have done very little for the new model year version of the vehicle and still enjoyed plenty of success. However, the automaker is never one to sit on its laurels, which means they actually have introduced some nice features in the new 2017 Honda CR-V, soon to be available to drivers in San Diego, CA at Pacific Honda in the coming months.

Honda Clarity to Release in California in 2016

California drivers are unique in that they often are granted the opportunity to purchase vehicles that the rest of the country does not. Because of the more stringent emissions standards here in the Golden State, automakers have been developing ultra-efficient autos specifically for California customers for well over a decade, and now the Honda brand is looking to add to that list with the all-new Honda Clarity Fuel Cell sedan, which will find its way to your San Diego, CA Honda dealership in the coming months.

Honda Introduces “Radical” New Honda Civic Type R

At this point, it probably is more than fair to say that the new 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback is a rousing success, not only with customers here in San Diego, CA, but all over the country. However, that shouldn’t come as too huge a surprise considering how excited people were when the Honda brand debuted their plans for the updated line of next-gen Honda Civic models.

Honda Releases 2017 Honda HR-V

Believe it or not, it already has been just about a year since Honda released the Honda HR-V crossover, which means it’s time for drivers near San Diego, CA and beyond to gear themselves up for the latest model year version of the burgeoning compact CUV.

Granted, the Honda brand hasn’t really changed a whole lot about the Honda HR-V just a year after introducing the inaugural iteration of the vehicle. But in the year since its debut, it has built quite a reputation for itself as an efficient, green automobile, meaning all the reasons customers fell in love with the Honda CR-V are all the same reasons that customers have fallen in love with its smaller, more affordable sibling. A new model year means a little fine-tuning, a few miscellaneous tweaks, and even a new exterior paint color. It’s not the complete overhaul some models get ever few years, but it’s enough to keep the crossover fresh and updated.

The new paint color is a notable change change, as Lunar Silver metallic paint will replace the Alabaster Silver of 2016. Beyond that, however, the Honda HR-V still boasts a number of great features, including a huge suite of advanced safety tech, loads of easy-to-use infotainment features, and an efficient, refined engine capable of producing upwards of 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque.

If you're interested in taking the 2017 Honda HR-V for a test drive, come pay us a visit here at Pacific Honda and one of our sales associates will get you behind the wheel for a test drive. Like all Honda dealers, we’re always excited to get our customers set up with vehicles we think they’re going to love, and just like last year, we think our customers are going to love the latest version of the Honda HR-V.

Honda Shows Value of Genuine Parts in Spoof Ad

Let’s say it’s time for an oil change, or you’ve got some sort of major auto repair that needs done, and you’re trying to decide where you should get all of that work completed for a reasonable price. Plenty of people opt to go the cheap, corner auto store route, doing whatever they can to save as much money as possible. However, at Pacific Honda, we’d argue that reaching out to our friendly Honda service center near San Diego, CA would be a much better choice for the overall health and integrity of your automobile.

2017 Honda Civic Type R Still Coming

Of course, fans of the sedan haven't seen anything yet, as the automaker has started to do some trials with the Type R iteration of the Honda Civic, and when it arrives at your Honda dealership serving Lemon Grove, CA within the next year, you'll get a better sense of just how great the new Honda Civic model line really is.

Honda HR-V Rocks Long-Term Review

The all-new Honda HR-V is still the baby of the family here at Pacific Honda, which means we still have our fair share of customers that aren’t entirely sure what they would think about owning one of them long-term. Many return buyers have owned Honda Civic or Honda Accord models for years and feel completely comfortable purchasing new versions of those, but even a test drive of the Honda HR-V wouldn’t give an all-encompassing picture of what it would be like to own the small crossover over time. Knowing that, how is a customer supposed to get a better idea of what long-term ownership would be like?

All-New 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Coming to Dealers

Honda Fit, Civic, HR-V Prove Great for Students

There may be a certain contingent of high school and college students out in the world today who need a car and would happily take ownership of just about anything they could reasonably get their hands on as long as the price was right. That falls into the whole “beggars can’t be choosers” philosophy of car-buying, but thanks to an avalanche of great new Honda cars and SUVs that are both affordable and desirable in other areas, students actually can be choosers. In fact, they’ve got more terrific choices than they’ve ever had!

Honda Debuts “Sonic Civic” at Comic Con

Here in San Diego, CA, we know that July marks the arrival of pop culture fans from all over the world for the largest Comic Con in existence. Every year the convention injects a tremendous amount of energy (and a tremendous number of celebrities) into our great city, which gives Honda a really nice opportunity to show off what the brand can do for an audience that’s more than thrilled to soak up all of the promotional stuff thrown their way at an event that is nothing but pure, unadulterated joy.

Honda Debuts New Artistic Ad for 2017 Honda Ridgeline

If you’ve seen one commercial for a pickup truck, you’ve seen them all, right? Nearly every single time, it probably has involved a hulking piece of machinery on wheels traversing the challenging terrains of a desert or rocky forest, all while hauling around a bed full of gigantic boulders for some unknown reason. They’re effective in showing off how powerful and rugged these trucks can be, but they simply are not all that creative. The Honda brand, let the record show, refuses to put out a subpar advertisement, as they’ve shown once again in a recent spot called “The Power of Ridgeline.”

New Hispanic-Focused 2017 Honda Ridgeline Ads Debut

As a Honda dealership serving Lemon Grove, CA, we are very aware of just how important Hispanic culture is in these parts. According to the most recent census information, exactly one-third of the San Diego, CA metropolitan area is of Hispanic or Latino descent, which in this instance equates to well over a million people. Many of them claim Spanish as a first language or are, at the very least, bilingual, so it makes sense for the Honda brand to come up with a Hispanic-focused series of advertisements to appeal to all those Spanish-speaking customers right here in our own backyard.

Summer also is when millions of children all over the world don their sponsored t-shirts and colorful ball caps to play Little League, an experience that culminates in the sport’s elite event, the Little League World Series, held annually in Williamsport, PA.

Honda Accord Celebrates 40th Anniversary

The Honda Accord recently celebrated its 40th birthday, proving that while so many automobiles have come and gone over the years, the truly great ones are more than welcome to usher themselves gracefully into middle age.

Of course, it’s a little unfair to call a vehicle as sharp and modern and technologically-advanced as the Accord “middle aged” when it looks a lot more like a stylish twentysomething, but one thing we can’t deny is that in its four decades of life, the Honda Accord has continually figured out how to appeal to the masses and remain one of the most popular automobiles in the industry. That’s the reason we celebrate the vehicle’s 40th birthday here at Pacific Honda, and that’s why San Diego, CA Honda customers continue to buy these celebrated sedans as we get underway in their fifth decade of existence.

The Honda Accord first made its way to the U.S. in 1982, when the Honda brand set up a manufacturing plant in Ohio that would eventually prove to be the first successful non-domestic auto plant in the country’s history. By 1989, the already popular Honda Accord would continue its rise to fame in the U.S., the first time that such an honor would go to a vehicle not developed and manufactured in Detroit, MI.

Anybody is welcome to come celebrate with us by taking the 2016 Honda Accord for a test drive here at Pacific Honda. One of our sales associates would love to get you behind the wheel of this esteemed automobile, if only so you can see just how far the Honda Accord has come over time. It’s come a long way from the little 74-hp sedan we first saw in the ‘70s, and we’re looking forward to seeing how it continues to grow in the future.
