    Tips for Getting Even Better Fuel Economy in Your New Honda

    Last updated 11 months ago

    When you drive home a brand new Honda, your vehicle will be equipped with cutting-edge fuel-efficient technology. In order to get the best possible gas mileage from your new Honda, it is essential to practice efficient driving and car care techniques. Here are some tips for getting even better fuel economy in your new Honda:

    Practice Efficient Driving

    One of the best ways to get better fuel economy is to practice safe and efficient driving habits. Whenever possible, avoid rapid acceleration and sudden braking maneuvers. Additionally, follow the posted speed limit at all times. Driving faster than the speed limit will burn more gasoline and dramatically decrease your fuel economy.

    Schedule Regular Maintenance

    The key systems in your new Honda are finely tuned to achieve the best possible fuel economy. By scheduling regular maintenance procedures for your vehicle, you will ensure that you are achieving the best possible fuel economy. Have your oil changed regularly to keep your engine running smoothly and efficiently. In addition, be sure that your tires are properly balanced, rotated, and inflated.

    Plan Ahead for Trips

    With a bit of careful planning, you can ensure that you are driving in the best possible conditions to achieve great gas mileage. Whenever possible, avoid driving during peak traffic times so that you do not spend long periods of time idling and burning gasoline. When planning a longer trip, be sure to pack your Toyota efficiently. Avoid storing items on the roof, and pack as lightly as possible to avoid weighing down your vehicle.

    Eyes on the Redesigned 2013 Honda Civic

    Last updated 11 months ago

    The Honda Civic has been one of Honda’s top-selling cars for decades. To give drivers a reason to choose the 2013 Civic instead of other cars in the compact segment, Honda fitted the latest Civic with a number of style, technology, and quality upgrades. Read on to see what the new Honda Civic has to offer San Diego drivers before you take it for a test drive.

    Upscale Interior

    Honda spruced up the interior of the 2013 Honda Civic with attractive trims and high-quality interior materials that are soft to the touch. The Honda Civic is now standard with Bluetooth, which makes wireless music streaming, hands-free phone calls, and even a hands-free text messaging system a reality. The Honda Civic also features a five-inch LCD screen just below the windshield that displays trip information, the current song playing, and the standard rearview camera.

    Fuel-Sipping Powertrains

    The Honda Civic can be fitted with a number of different cutting-edge engines. The standard motor is a 1.8-liter four-cylinder that makes 140 horsepower and earns 28 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway with an automatic transmission. The performance-oriented Civic Si, on the other hand, comes with a 201-horsepower 2.4-liter and a six-speed manual. If top-notch fuel economy and eco-friendliness is your top priority, the Civic Hybrid delivers a fantastic value with a 110-horsepower engine and a combined fuel economy of 44 mpg.

    Responsive Steering

    Honda engineers injected the Civic with more driving confidence than ever before. The 2013 Honda Civic features a brand-new ACE II chassis that is lighter and more rigid than the 2012 Civic. The new model also comes with new suspension and steering systems. If you want to enjoy nimble handling in your next compact car, the Civic is an excellent choice.
