2016 Honda Civic Sedan

 A New Look for a New Generation
  With a fierce new shape and distinctive cut lines, the all-new 10th-generation Civic has never looked better. With LED Lights see more road and use less energy with distinctive LED Daytime Running Lights and brake lights. Touring models also feature all-LED headlights and turn indicators. The Civic knows when it’s raining, and can activate its wipers automatically (Touring). The fuel filler neck opens on contact with the pump nozzle, making every refill simple and clean.
 Civic EX-T and above models feature a 1.5-liter, turbocharged engine for high cruise efficiency and robust performance.  Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)- CVT maximizes efficiency whatever the driving condition. The new Civic handles every bit as nice as it looks. Improvements to power steering and rear suspension offer a smoother ride without compromising fun.
  Choose from three heat levels in the front (EX-T and above). And now, outboard rear passengers can enjoy heated seats, too (Touring). Power seats mean personalized comfort, whether you’re driving or along for the ride (EX-L and above). Need more cargo space? Fold down one or both sides of the rear seatback to accommodate both gear and passengers (EX and above).

New Honda Ridgeline Spied..

The all-new 2016 Honda Ridgeline is coming, and there have been a few new renderings that show what the pickup might look like. Although the renderings aren't from Honda itself, they're heavily based on a sketch that Honda released at the Chicago Auto Show, which previewed the upcoming truck.
   According to the renderings, the Ridgeline will combine traditional Honda SUV styling with a more familiar pickup design than what the outgoing Ridgeline offered. That means a bed separate from the truck's body, a typical pickup feature that wasn't present in the original Ridgeline. The result is that the latest Ridgeline could offer more bed and cab configurations than the outgoing model.
Another difference between the renderings and the outgoing Ridgeline: The latest version of the truck will probably offer more typical Honda styling, compared to the more muscular, bold look of the old Ridgeline. While some truck enthusiasts might complain that the new truck isn't brawny enough, it will likely appeal to city-based car owners who don't need the size and might of a tough, muscular full-size pickup.
   Beyond the teaser sketch shown in Chicago, Honda hasn't released many details about its upcoming Ridgeline pickup. Expect that the new truck will utilize the Honda Pilot chassis, just like the old model, along with a 3.5-liter V6 and a 9-speed automatic transmission.  Stay tuned for more updates on the 2016 Honda Ridgeline.

Is your car ready for Winter?

1.  Check your battery.  Getting stranded in the cold with a dead battery is no one's idea of a good time.  If you have a maintenance-free battery, there should be a window on the top of the battery that tells you the state of it's charge.  If it's not, check the fluid levels, and top off with distilled water as necessary.  if you're not sure how to check your battery, most any auto parts store will be able to check it for you.
2.  Check your tires.  While a dead battery can leave you stranded, balding tires on snowy and icy roads can lead to a much more dangerous situation.  If you live in an area that gets a significant amount of snow, you may want to consider snow tires.
3.  Check your wiper blades.  Going cheap on your wiper blades or ignoring them can lead to very unpleasant driving in the winter.  Bad wipers can't do an adequate job of keeping the snow and ice off of your windshield, no matter how high you have the defrosters blasting.
4.  Check your fluids.  Check your owner's manual, but for most vehicles, the cooling system should be flushed every two years.  If your vehicle is overdue, prior to winter setting in is as good of a time as any to have it taken care of.  Also, refer to your owner's manual to find what type and what mixture of anti-freeze you should be using.  You will also want to keep your windshield washer fluid full, using a fluid that is designed for not freezing in the cold weather.  If you get stuck behind a truck throwing dirty snow at your windshield, you will be glad you did.  As always, change your oil regularly.
5.  Keep your vehicle supplied.  Normal emergency materials are key for the winter.  If you do get stranded on the road, you want other driver's to be able to see you.  Roadside flares are not excessive to keep on hand.  Keeping extra warm cloths, gloves, and a blanket or two are always good ideas as well.  Be sure to have lock de-icer on hand- and keep in mind that it doesn't always help to have it in the car.  Some in your house, and some at work are a great idea. 
6.  Care for the interior of your car.  In and out of the snow, ice, and salt can be particularly rough on your carpets.  Be sure to have at least an inexpensive set of floor mats for your car.  Better yet are the kind that can hold the water and keep it away from your carpets completely.
7.  Let your car warm up (and revving your engine doesn't really help).  Keep in mind, though, thieves are excellent at watching for cars that are running but unattended.  Have an extra door key that you keep on you and lock the doors while it is warming up, even if you are at home. 
8.  Be safe.  Allow extra time to get where you are going, leave plenty of space between you and the driver in front, and use good common sense.  It's better to arrive a few minutes late than not at all.

The 2016 Honda Accord

   The redesigned 2016 Honda Accord is going to have some big shoes to fill, it's own. After all, it has landed on the "10 Best Cars" list 29 times while remaining America's favorite family sedan. The 2016 Accord has added some new ingredients to an already spectacular recipe and we can't wait to try it. The improvements go beyond the typical revision and the result is beautiful.

  The interior of the new Accord  focuses on technology. Inside, the infotainment system adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality. Both systems come standard on EX, EX-L and Touring trims; in addition to streamlining music streaming, giving your car the ability to read you your text messages and bringing Apple and Android’s powerful voice-recognition systems into the cockpit, this also means you won’t have to opt for the Navi package to get in-car navigation (your smartphone’s built-in GPS fills the gap).

  The Honda Accord Sedan offered in LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Touring trims, while the Coupe available in LX-S, EX, EX-L, and Touring models. The base Accord LX model includes dual-zone automatic climate control, 16-inch alloys, Bluetooth connectivity, a rearview camera system, and an eight-inch i-MID display with Pandora audio streaming and SMS text-message capability. V-6 models get some nicer cabin appointments, and EX-L models have a 360-watt system with Aha internet radio streaming. So, consider the Accord's shoes filled.

The redesigned Honda Civic

  The all-new Civic Concept took the spotlight at the 2015 New York Auto Show on April 1. As the basis for the entire line of the 2016 Civic family, the Civic Concept boasts a variety of sporty, aggressive features that will redefine the compact market. This fall, the Sedan-later followed by a Coupe, an Si, a 5-door model, and a new Civic Type-R-will celebrate our take on an advanced, sport-inspired design. Featuring a new turbo-charged engine, the Civic Concept embodies the spirited, game-changing future of the tenth-generation Civic.

   The new Civic is being called "the most radical redesign in Civic history". It's a redesign that Mr. Honda himself would be proud of, a concept car that so closely resembles that of the tenth-generation production car. Honda is returning to the sporty Civics of beloved memory, establishing new high points of handling and refinement for the model. The new Civic will be a little wider and a little longer than the current model, with a shorter front over-hang and A-pillars that are pulled back to give it a more exciting profile. The front and rear LED lighting strongly resemble that of the current model and the rest of the Honda line up. Stay tuned for more information, including horsepower, body materials and suspension architecture, on this exciting redesign of the Honda Civic.

The Honda HR-V

  The Honda HR-V is the best all-rounder and the early segment leader. It checks all the right boxes: good fuel economy, mature driving dynamics (the manual is more fun), and competitive pricing. Because the HR-V inherits the Fit’s clever, center-mounted fuel tank layout, it offers a large and infinitely configurable interior. The dashboard’s plush materials and modern-looking design are just cherries on top, even if we’re not huge fans of Honda’s button-free touchscreen interface.

5 Reasons to buy the 2015 Honda Odyssey

5 Reasons to buy the 2015 Honda Odyssey
   At Smart Honda, we’re proud to offer the 2015 Honda Odyssey to not only our Okemos customers, but surrounding area drivers as well. If you’re looking to buy a minivan, then look no further than the new 2015 Honda Odyssey. This comfortable minivan has a lot more to offer than one might think. Here are the top 5 reasons you should buy a 2015 Honda Odyssey:

 1. Superior Safety
   The 2015 Honda Odyssey is among the safest vehicles on the road. In 2014 the Honda Odyssey was the first minivan to earn the Institute’s top safety designation for good performance in all five IIHS crash evaluations. The Honda Odyssey has all the safety-features bells and whistles you could need. Standard on all models is a rearview camera system, an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), a Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with traction control system, Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), brake assist and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).

2. HondaVac

   Messy kids? Shedding Dog? While only available on the Touring Elite model, the HondaVac is a built-in vacuum cleaner that is stored in the back of the minivan. The hose is long enough to reach the front of the car allowing you to easily clean up those every day spills from snacking in the car. The HondaVac includes two attachments to make cleaning up even easier. We think it’s definitely worth the upgrade just for this nifty tool.

3. Nimble Handling and Performance

   With a car-like foundation and better handling, the 2015 Honda Odyssey has the performance and power that is not typically found in a  minivan. All models come standard with a six-speed automatic transmission which gives it confident acceleration and passing, and enough power to head up mountain roads fully loaded.

4. Spacious Interior

   With seating for up to 8 passengers, there’s tons of space for everyone in the 2015 Honda Odyssey. The second row can be used as three seats that can be adjusted to each side to allow for easy movement through the cabin. If you’re not looking to carry a lot of people, but need space for cargo, then the Odyssey has you covered. The second-row seats can be removed completely and the third-row seats can be magically tucked into the rear cargo area.

5. HondaLink Infotainment Suite
   Drivers don’t have to worry about upgrading to a nicer model if they want a good entertainment package. Want Bluetooth and Pandora Compatibility? These features come standard on all models and on the EX models and higher HondaLink with an audio touch-screen comes standard too.

Drivers in Okemos, MI and surrounding areas can stop by Capital Honda to see why we think the 2015 Honda Odyssey is one of the best minivans and cars on the market. Visit us for a test-drive and to speak with one of our Honda Certified Product Specialists about the 2015 Honda Odyssey.

Car Brand Awards

   The Kelley Blue Book is most well known for its informative and data-driven information pertaining to vehicular values, but the firm does a lot more than that. Case in point: Each year, the KBB gathers data supplied by its online shoppers to present the Brand Image Awards, given to companies which go above and beyond in terms of public perception.

   This isn’t just a quick poll or online survey based on how someone feels at that moment. These awards are given based on extensive research gathered throughout the year. The key research vehicle for the Brand Image Awards, Kelley Blue Book Market Intelligence’s Brand Watch study, is an online study that taps into more than 12,000 in-market new-vehicle shoppers annually who do their research at

This year Honda made the list twice, winning the Best Overall Brand and Most Trusted Brand.

   KBB’s new car buyers also found Honda to be the Most Trusted Brand, the survey determined for the third year in a row. “The brand is known for building reliable, efficient, safe cars that offer a lot of value when new, and hold that value as used models,” KBB explained. Further, Honda doesn’t have any major recall controversies surrounding it like Toyota or General Motors do at the moment, either.

   This year marks the second consecutive year that Honda has sat in the Best Overall Brand throne. “Considering Honda has also won the award for Most Trusted Brand among non-luxury shoppers three years in a row, this win isn’t a huge surprise,” said. Hondas are well known for doing many things well — they are efficient vehicles that offer refinement, comfort, reliability, and build quality.

Why Certified-Preowned

   Not so long ago, buying a used car was a dicey proposition. Actually, it still can be.
But it is so much easier now to buy a used vehicle that is in excellent working condition―and to find one whose reliability will allow you to sleep at night. Part of the reason for this is the emergence of the pre-owned certified car market. As these cars grow in popularity, more and more groups are getting into the picture. Car dealers and third-party companies are now joining an area that was once the domain of vehicle manufacturers.
   Every Honda is a product of innovative engineering and quality manufacturing. And only well-maintained Honda models that are less than six years old and have a maximum of 80,000 miles are eligible for certification. The certification process includes:
  • A thorough multi-point mechanical and appearance inspection, performed by the dealer, to ensure that each used vehicle meets Honda Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle standards.
  • Honda-trained technicians scrutinize all major vehicle systems, including brakes, engine, drivetrain, steering, suspension, tires, wheels, exhaust system and vehicle interior and exterior.
  • Dealer technicians recondition any component that does not meet our standards.
  • Any component that cannot be reconditioned is replaced with Honda Genuine Parts.
  • A limited warranty that covers engine and transmission components for up to 7 years/100,000 miles.

Benefits of Ownership

Buying a Honda Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle is a smart choice. Only well-maintained Honda vehicles that are under six years old and have fewer than 80,000 miles are eligible for certification. The program includes many other benefits that a private seller just can’t match, like a thorough multi-point inspection conducted by a team of Honda-trained technicians.

Why you should choose a Honda Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle

Every Honda is a product of innovative engineering and quality manufacturing. And only well-maintained Honda models that are less than six years old and have a maximum of 80,000 miles are eligible for certification.

2016 Redesigned Honda Pilot

   The 2016 redesigned Honda Pilot is looking to be THE family vehicle. From constantly checking how well child-safety seats fit in vehicles to how sane they keep Mom and Dad, the 2016 Honda Pilot was at the top of the list. The 2016 Honda Pilot has axed its hard edges: it's once again a smooth, capable family wagon, one that raises the bar for refinement. The Honda Pilot was a pioneer in the race to reformat rugged SUVs into something more prosaic, more useful--more liveable on a daily basis. When it was new in 2003, the Pilot got the driving height and all-weather traction of the SUV right, and wrapped it in an airy Honda-like body with lots of seats, superb visibility and, truth, frumpy looks.
   From a Blue-Ray player to an HDMI port for gaming, the Pilot appears to have plenty of electronics to keep children of all ages occupied for hours. The Pilot also offers plenty of USB ports, some being powerful enough to charge iPads. Parents can also enjoy many entertainment options, but may be more excited about all the available storage in the Pilot. The center console is much larger than the old Pilot and can easily hold a large purse. The smaller cubbies throughout the vehicle make storing childrens things convenient as well. The cargo area is also impressive with its significant amount of under floor storage. There’s a reversible cargo panel for dirty stuff like soccer cleats and beach chairs—and this cargo well behind the third row can hold an 82-quart cooler. Capri Sun for

Have you seen America's most popular minivan, the Honda Odyssey?

Looking for a vehicle with innovative features, lots of practical space, smart safety features and can fit the whole crew? Then you should add the Honda Odyssey to your shopping list.

Named “Best Buy of the Year” by Kelley Blue Book’s, the Honda Odyssey has earned numerous awards and accolades from U.S. News, Autobytel, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. And more. No wonder it’s America’s Most Popular Minivan.

The Odyssey presents solutions to life’s many challenges. Versatility is what you will find with the spacious interior. And seating options. This is what we all need. More options. Not less.

The second row has added flexibility with a seating position called “wide mode” in which the outboard seats can slide 1.5 inches to each side. How’s that for extra wiggle room? The multi-function second row seat (on the EX and above) seat back folds down to reveal three beverage holders and a tray for small items, another must for those longer road trips. And the center seat contains the LATCH anchor system mounts for a child seat. It slides forward 5.5 inches, allowing the child to be closer to the adults and providing better accessibility.

The third row-van seating creates a number of combinations of cargo storage solutions utilizing its one-motion Magic Seat®. Simple to operate, the strap operates the seat storage with just a tug. And the seat literally stows itself. The storage well behind the third-row is yet another spot to store cargo.

Plus the walk-in feature gives you easier movement throughout the cabin.

There’s more to the Odyssey than just where to sit. There are the features. The 2016 makes sure life is kept convenient, easier. From HondaLink which keeps music, media and information in one easy to access place on the easy to read info screen to the ultrawide 16.2 Honda DVD Rear Entertainment system, there is something for everyone. Even the Cool Box (EX-L and above) that keeps your drinks and snacks chilled for the drive...

The 2015 Honda Civic: Renewing a Classic

The Honda Civic first went on sale over 40 years ago, making it one of the best known cars on the road. The latest iteration of the Civic received several updates over the past few years keeping it in tune with the market.

The Civic was remodeled in 2013. The interior was refreshed, additional features were introduced including noise insulation, and the suspension was retuned for comfort. In 2015, the Civic remains nearly unchanged after updates to the top-trim infotainment system last year.

The exterior of the current Civic sports some handsome designer touches. Up front, several styling features mimic the Accord’s face: the black honeycomb mesh grille, new “open-mouth” lower bumper, integrated fog lamps on high-line models and new clear lens cornering lamps. A chrome finishing bar in back and rear bumper design dresses up the clean lines of the Civic.

Inside, the two level-instrument panel was left and the finishes and surfaces were refreshed. A soft-touch vinyl was added to provide comfort where hands and elbows make frequent contact. Front seats are roomy. However, rear seat passengers might find space a little tight according to reviewers.

Refinement carries over to driving and riding experience. A higher-strength steel and stiffer side pillars provide a smoother ride while thicker glass for both the windshield and front side windows and added soundproofing provide reduced road noise...

8 Cool Things You're Going to Love About the 2016 Honda Pilot

It’s been generating a lot of buzz. The redesigned 2016 Honda Pilot made its grand debut at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show and turned a lot of heads. And with good reason. Sure, it has sleeker styling and a revised powertrain for better fuel economy and power. But there are some nice family-friendly extras that have been worked into the details, making this midsize SUV standout against the crowd and gives it even more practicality and versatility than before.

Reversible cargo floor
Yes, there is a significantly larger cargo area behind the third row seats. But the nifty part is the reversible cargo floor. Carpet on one side; a more durable, rubberized surface on the other. With one easy flip, you have your choice of an easier to clean surface when there is need to transport dirty gear. Or a day at the beach. Underneath the storage area, the floor is also trimmed with the same rubberized plastic surface.

Active safety features
The 2016 Pilot was fitted with a suite of Honda Sensing active safety technologies including blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and a rear-cross traffic alert. Expect these features to be available as an option package on the higher-trim versions of the 2016 Honda Pilot.

Engine start/stop
A newly available engine start-stop system will be available for the first time as Honda is targeting best-in-class fuel economy for the 2016 Pilot and its new 3.5-liter V6 engine. This system will be offered in versions of the Pilot that are equipped with 9-speed automatic transmissions.

Panoramic sunroof
Passengers in the rear can get some extra sun thanks to the Pilot’s optional sunroof that stretches over the second-row seats. While the glass-panel is fixed, it does have a movable shade and there is a traditional sliding sunroof over the front seats...

2016 Honda Pilot: For the Family

The 2016 Honda Pilot caught the eye of several automotive reviewers at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show including noted reviewers at Giving it a thorough inspection, they noted that it could be the ultimate family vehicle, checking it over for the necessities including safety features, space, how child safety seats fit, storage space, and meeting the needs of parents and kids.

“The redesigned Pilot has easy-to-reach cupholders nearly everywhere you look, with double cupholders in the rear doors and next to the third row’s outboard seats,” said Jennifer Newman, assistant managing editor and mother of two. “In the Pilot with the optional captain’s chairs, there’s also another set of cupholders in the low center covered with a nonslip material perfect for corralling toys and books."

With a bench seat, the Pilot will be able to accommodate three car seats across the second row, making it perfect for larger families. And as they grow and grow up, the third row offers plenty of legroom and head room...

A look back at the Honda Civic

It was 1973. Honda had set out to make the best little car that could. Sporting the tagline "It'll get you where you're going," a love affair was started. 40 years later, it's still going strong.

With its quirky styling, transversely mounted engine, front-wheel drive, and fully independent suspension, the original Civic made an impression and turned heads. It was everything that its American counterparts were not. It stood apart. And it was fun to drive.

Honda engineers continued to tinker with the Civic's engine, teasing out more performance, bumping up the cc's to a total of 1,237 and horsepower to 52.

But what established the Civic as a credible threat was the introduction of the CVCC engine in 1974. As federal mandates continued to demand more from engines, requiring tighter emissions standards, the majority of automakers begrudgingly reluctantly fitted exhaust catalysts. However, Honda saw a better way and quietly went to work. And the CVCC (Compound Vortex Controlled Combustion) engine was born. Featuring a head and fuel-delivery design, it provided cleaner and more complete combustion, meeting the new standards. All without the need for a catalytic converter. And still ran on standard leaded gasoline...

2015 Honda Fit and CR-V awarded Best Resale Value

Two Honda models have been awarded "Best Resale Value" by Kelley Blue Book, the trusted vehicle valuation resource.

The 2015 Fit earned the top award in its class for overall projected resale value after five years of ownership. Additionally, the 2015 CR-V was recognized in the Top 10 Best Resale Value vehicles in America:

David Hendley, assistant vice president of sales at America Honda Motor Company, Inc., was impressed and proud of the Fit’s achievement. “The Fit is a premium small car with a healthy appetite for passengers and cargo, representing tremendous value well beyond its exterior footprint,” he said. “It’s great to see the all-new Fit, our brand’s entry model, join the much honored CR-V among’s Best Resale Value Award winners this year.”

Kelly Blue Book’s Best Resale Value Awards are based on projections from the Kelley Blue Book® Official Residual Value Guide. These prestigious awards honor vehicles expected to maintain the greatest proportion of their original Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) after five years of ownership. Since depreciation (or loss of value) is typically a car buyer's primary expense during ownership, these awards are designed to help consumers make more informed car-buying decisions.

2015 Honda Fit Earns 5 Stars From NHTSA

The Honda Fit was awarded five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) which makes it the only subcompact to achieve top marks in government tests. Not too shabby for the little car that could.

News outlets and national media magazines have sat up and taken notice of the Fit and the high marks it earned in front and side crash tests and rollover tests, five and four stars respectively. Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure contributed to the Fit’s strong performance in these tests. What this means is the crash energy is redirected more evenly throughout the car.
