Honda CR-V

When purchasing a car, you want it to have plenty of versatility. The 2015 Honda CR-V is one car that offers plenty of it. It has space, safety, and super features - three great aspects that make this ride an optimal choice!

Space: The cabin of the 2015 Honda CR-V offers practicality, plus abundant space. In the front, there is plenty of room for driver and passenger, and with newly added adjustable power driver seat, anyone behind the wheel will get superior visibility and a sense of openness; this only adds to the spacious feel. The backseat is very roomy and with rear seats that recline, passengers are given great comfort.

While bucket-sized storage bins are no longer available on the CR-V, the 2015 models do provide space for drinks and plenty of small items like pens and wallets. These cubbies also have a non-slip grip that are perfect for storing phones.

Safety: What’s the point of a car that doesn’t offer safety protection? The 2015 CR-V offers an abundance of safety equipment, as well as features that make it a top safety pick. Standard on all 2015 CR-V’s: antilock brakes, stability and traction control, front-seat side air bags, side curtain airbags, and rearview camera.

Included on all trims (except the LX) is a LaneWatch blind-spot monitoring system. This feature has its very own camera that displays passenger-side blind-spot activity on a seven-inch touchscreen display.

Available on the CR-Touring trim is an extra safety feature that is pretty cool. This lane departure warning and forward collision warning and mitigation system is able to distinguish between vehicles and pedestrians; it even warns the driver accordingly. It also applies automatic braking intervention in order to reduce the severity of a collision.

The CR-V performed very well in government crash tests and with the IIHS. In government crash tests, it received four-out-of-five stars in overall and frontal crash protection; it got five stars in side crash protection. The IIHS gave the CR-V the highest possible rating of ‘Good’ in small-overlap and moderate-overlap frontal-offset impact tests. It also received a ‘Superior’ rating in the optional frontal collision warning and mitigation system test.

Super Features: The 2015 CR-V is a five-passenger crossover SUV available in four trims - LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring. Here’s what each has in store for you!

LX: The base LX offers much more than typically found on low trim models, like rearview camera, reclining rear seats, and sound system with Pandora Internet radio compatibility.

EX: The EX comes with even more must-have features to please most customers. These include, sunroof, fog lights, retractable cargo cover, keyless entry and ignition, heated front seats, seven-inch touchscreen, and blind-spot monitoring system with camera that shows the passenger-side blind-spot.

EX-L: The EX-L is similar to the EX, but offers a few more add-ons that are sure to engage shoppers, like roof rails, heated side mirrors, leather upholstery, satellite radio, and seven-speaker sound system.

Touring: The Touring sits at the top of the CR-V lineup, and with good reason. Features include: projector beam headlights, power liftgate, forward collision mitigation system, lane-departure warning system, navigation, and HD radio.

Honda Pilot

Honda Pilot

Do you ever feel like most cars look the same? Sometimes you just want to drive something a bit different from the norm. If you’re looking for a car that is definitely not generic, consider the Honda Pilot.

In recent years marked a full redesign for the Honda Pilot, giving it a more rugged exterior and interior, along with a more usable third-row seat. The Pilot is a midsize crossover SUV with an angular aesthetic that has proven to please consumers. Here are some of the perks you’ll love about the Pilot.

Offered in front-wheel or all-wheel drive, the Pilot is available in four purchase-worthy trims. Here’s a peek at what each offers.

LX: Standard with power side mirrors, keyless entry, and full power accessories, the LX is already heads above other used car base-level trims. This trim provides a few more things, like cruise control, third-row seating, and a seven-speaker CD/MP3 audio system with auxiliary input jack.

EX: The Pilot EX adds onto the equipment and features of the LX, plus has several extras fit to please. Some include: fog lights, 17-inch alloy wheels, power driver seat, in-dash six-CD changer, and satellite radio.

EX-L: This trim adds a hint more luxury to its appeal with several great touches - leather upholstery, heated front seats, sunroof, and rearview mirror-mounted back-up camera.

Touring: Want high-end? You’ll get it with the Pilot’s Touring trim. It offers a 10-speaker audio system, navigation system with voice recognition, and integrated back-up camera. Also included is Bluetooth connectivity, power liftgate, and USB audio interface.

Hoping to entertain kids in the backseat? You may be in luck. EX-L and Touring trims can be found with a DVD rear-seat entertainment system with 10-speaker audio system.

Inside: Climb into the Pilot and you’ll find an attractive interior with the same rugged appeal found in the exterior. Display screen and navigation system sits at hand-level, making it low, yet easy to use. Third-row seating is very roomy, even for tall adults, providing an extra 1.8-inches of legroom - compared to previous editions.

Behind the wheel, drivers will be confident on pavement, as well as during light-duty, off-road tasks. Its soft suspension makes for a comfortable ride whether on highway or rough roads, and steering is nicely weighted and reasonably precise.

Safety: You can’t beat the top scores awarded to the Honda Pilot. In government crash tests, it scored a perfect five stars in frontal- and side-impact testing. Standard safety equipment is also top-notch with antilock disk brakes, stability control, front-seat side airbags, and full-length side curtain airbags.

Step behind the wheel of your very own Honda Pilot. Visit Washington Honda, located in Washington and South Hills, Pennsylvania and Morgantown, West Virginia.

2008_honda_accord

Honda Accord

The Honda Accord first started out as a small, compact car. But over the years, it has become bigger, more powerful, and even more trustworthy. The Accord is an excellent used car that is worth your attention. This specific edition got a complete redesign that made it even more spacious and powerful than previous models. Check out these must-knows about this great Accord.

The Accord can be found in sedan and coupe body styles and four trim levels. The sedan comes in LX, LX-P, EX, and EX-L, while the coupe can be found in LX-S, EX, and EX-L trims.

Base LX: The LX stands at the bottom of the sedan trim levels and comes with all of the basics, like 16-inch steel wheels, keyless entry, full-power accessories, cruise control, and six-speaker stereo with CD/MP3 player. Rear seats also fold down for extra cargo room.

LX-P: The LX-P adds onto the base LX with a few simple extras, like 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic front windows, and power driver seat.

LX-S: The coupe LX-S trim includes most of the LX-P’s equipment, but also adds some extra entertainment with an in-dash six-speaker CD changer.

EX: The EX sedan gets the six-speaker CD changer of the LX-S coupe, while the EX coupe jumps to a premium stereo system with subwoofer.

EX-L: The EX-L trim is the most luxurious of them all, standing at the top of the Accord line. It has leather upholstery and steering wheel, auto-on headlights, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated seats, and satellite radio. While the EX-L sedan gains a premium stereo, the coupe gets a power driver seat.

There is only one extra option available on the Accord and it can only be found on the EX-L trim level. This lone option is a navigation system with voice-activated controls and Bluetooth.

Interior: No matter the trim, the inside of the Accord offers good interior quality, a simple design, and attractive design. There is a vast amount of room for front and rear passengers. Trunk space is also generous in both body styles with 14-cubic feet in the sedan and 11.9-cubic feet in the coupe.

Behind the wheel of the Accord you’ll find it to be competent no matter the road or weather. Handling is sporty and it provides comfortable seating, which makes long drives manageable. The Accord is also much quieter than previous editions due to sound-deadening materials and body-stiffening measures.

Under the hood, there is also a much larger engine than past models that delivers both good performance and fuel efficiency. This new engine is a 3.5-liter V6, which has a cylinder-deactivation technology that allows it to run on six, four or three cylinders depending on driving conditions.

Honda Service

Having a new car can be one of the most exciting feelings in the world. It’s so shiny it actually sparkles in the sun. Every miniscule crevice is spotless. That new-car smell fills your nostrils every time you step inside. While a new, squeaky clean car is great, it won’t be long before it gets that worn-in feel - inside and out, plus under the hood. Taking care of all parts of your new car is an important aspect of owning one. When you buy a car from Washington Honda, you’ll be eligible for an enormous list of care services to ensure your new car continues to run its best. One service is oil changes.

Oil changes are one of the cheapest services you can provide for your car. Not to mention, one of the most important. The purpose of engine oil is to keep the internal parts of your car’s engine lubricated and cool. If your car lacks the required amount of oil it needs, there is not enough lubrication. This leads engine parts to grind against each other. If this happens, serious damage to the engine can occur.

There are many facts that affect a car’s oil. Here are a few of them.

  • Extreme heat
  • Towing often
  • Spending a lot of time in stop-and-go traffic
  • Driving in dusty or sandy areas

It’s important to get your car’s oil changed every 3,000 miles or every three months - whichever comes first. If you don’t change your car’s oil often enough - or ever - potential problems can arise. A buildup of dirt and sludge will occur inside the engine. Dirty oil does not lubricate the moving parts of an engine as it should. As time goes on and oil is not changed, you could end up needing an expensive engine cleaning or worse - an entire engine replacement!

Another service that the professionals at Washington Honda can provide you is brake services. Brakes are the most important safety feature a car has, so it’s important to make sure they are functioning properly.

There are many ways to know when your brakes may be in need of seeing a professional. Some include:

  • Loss of tire grip when braking.
  • Car pulling left or right when braking.
  • Shuddering through the wheel when braking.
  • Longer stop time than usual.
  • Squeals, screeches or scratching noises when braking.
  • Brake system warning light comes on.

If you notice any of these warnings signs, be sure to take your car in to see a Honda professional as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the greater the risk of brake failure and potential injury.

To keep your new Honda running smoothly, bring your car to a Honda Certified Technician. Visit Washington and South Hills, Pennsylvania and Morgantown, West Virginia.
