Best Holiday Gifts for Your Honda Lover

If you are a Honda lover or you have a friend that is a Honda lover, your Christmas shopping just got easier. Let your friends know what Honda accessories you might like - or get your friend some great Honda accessories for his or her Honda vehicle. You may find several accessories at Superior Honda - or you can enlist the help of their technicians to install the more complicated accessories.

Novline 18.12.210 Honda Pilot Floor Mats and Liners

Pick up some custom-designed floor liners/mats for the Pilot. They cover the floor area, including the driver's left foot rest. These are perfect to keep the water from melting snow and ice, plus the salt and sand used on roads and driveways off your carpets. And, if you spill something, they'll also protect the carpets.

Vertical Doors Lambo Door Conversion Kit for the Honda Civic

This kit comes with direct bolt-on hinges. The kit hinges replace the Civic's stock hinges so that the door opens out then rotates up. This is the perfect gift if you want to really make your Honda Civic stand out from the rest.

Spyder Honda Accord Headlights - Smoke or Black

If you want to change the look of your Honda Accord, change the factory headlights out to smoke headlights. Since the headlights are a replacement for the factory headlights, they are easy to install, however, if you are not comfortable with taking your Honda apart, stop by Superior Honda for help from the service techs.

Honda Dash Mats

Dash mats not only add to the interior, they protect your dash from the sun's damaging rays. Eventually, the sun will crack the dash pad or the dashboard. Keep that from happening by using dash mats. They'll also protect the color from fading.

Side Bars

Side bars not only help you in and out of your SUV, but they also look nice. Get your Honda lover a set of side bars to dress up his or her Honda SUV.

Stop by Superior Honda

Stop by Superior Honda for more Honda accessory ideas or to have the service department help you install aftermarket accessories. If you haven't had your Honda serviced in some time, have the techs complete the recommended maintenance at the same time.



Favorite Thanksgiving Recipes

If you haven't done your Thanksgiving shopping already, you'll probably do it early this coming week. While you're out, be sure to stop at Superior Honda to take advantage of the great November specials on new cars, pre-owned cars and service. If you haven't had your vehicle serviced for the winter yet, now is a good time to get it done.

Apple Pie Filling

  • 15 hard, sweet apples (don't use a soft apple like a Granny Smith)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ cups light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ¼ cup cold water

Peel and core the apples. Slice them in eighths. Melt the butter in a saucepan on medium-low heat. Add the apples. Cook the apples until they begin to sweat, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the sugars and the spices. Increase the heat and let simmer for 10 minutes. Mix half of the cornstarch with half of the water until it is smooth. Add it to the apple mixture and stir constantly until the mixture thickens. If you want a thicker mixture, mix the rest of the cornstarch and water, and then add it to the apple mixture. Cook until the mixture thickens, constantly stirring.

Let the apple mixture cool if you are going to freeze it or store it in the fridge until you are ready to use it. If you are baking the pie right away, let it cool to room temperature, then pour it into the pie crust. Cover with a second pie crust. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit about 45 to 50 minutes or until the crust is done and nicely browned.

Cheese Sauce for Veggies

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 2 thick slices of jalapeno pepper cheese
  • 4 1-inch slices of Velveeta sharp cheddar

Add the butter and milk to a saucepan on low heat and let it cook until the butter melts. Add the cheeses and stir constantly until all of the cheese melts. Pour over hot vegetables.

Winterizing Your Vehicle


Kristian20/Flickr Creative Commons

Whether you have a brand new Honda from Superior Honda or your vehicle is a few years old, you have to take steps to winterize the vehicle before the cold and snow set in. Not only do you need to make sure your vehicle is mechanically secure, you should also add an emergency kit to the trunk.

Tires

Even if you have newer tires, you need to check them for tread wear and air pressure. Check your vehicle's tires for low tread wear if the tires are older - the less tread you have, the less traction you'll have. Uneven tread wear could mean a problem with the alignment, and that is not something you need to deal with when trying to drive through snow.

Air pressure is also important. If you notice that a tire is continuously loosing air pressure, bring your vehicle in to have the tires checked and possibly replaced - you may have a slow leak. You probably don't want to deal with a flat in the winter cold, either - and getting a flat on slick roads could cause you to crash.

Battery, Belts and Hoses

Keeping the battery, belts and hoses in excellent condition for the winter is highly important. Contact our service department to make an appointment to have your battery checked, especially if it is more than three years old.

We'll also check your belts and hoses to ensure that they are in excellent condition. If you lose a heater hose, you won't have heat in the vehicle - and your vehicle will overheat. If you lose a belt, especially a serpentine belt or a belt that turns the water pump, you'll overheat the engine.

Emergency Kit

Even if you've taken all precautions to ensure your vehicle is in perfect running order, you may end up stranded. You could slide off the road, or even if you are extremely careful driving in snowy conditions, others may not be and could cause you to get in an accident.

If you should run into such unfortunate circumstances, you'll want an emergency kit that includes extra blankets and coats, water, a flashlight, food such as energy bars, candy bars and other high-energy food, and a good first aid kit.

Call Superior Honda today to set up a service appointment to ensure that your vehicle is properly winterized for this winter so that you significantly decrease the chances that you will be stranded in the cold.

Thanksgiving Treats

Superior Honda wants to help you get ready for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. In addition to making sure your vehicle is set for the winter, you'll want to make sure you have all of the ingredients you need for the perfect Thanksgiving dinner.

Oreo Turkeys

Ingredients:

  • Double stuff Oreo cookies
  • Whoppers
  • Candy corn
  • Mini peanut butter cups
  • Chocolate frosting
  • White frosting
  • Red food coloring
  • Yellow food coloring
  • Black sprinkles

Instructions:

Put some chocolate frosting between the two cookie parts of the Oreo. Stick some candy corn in the frosting - between the cookies - for the turkey's tail. Place a dab of frosting on the opposite end of the cookie, and then stick it onto another Oreo at 90 degrees so it's standing up. You might need to prop them against something until they dry or they could fall over.

Unwrap the peanut butter cups. Cut a small piece off one side to flatten it out. Place a dab of frosting on the upright cookie and another on the flat cookie. Place the peanut butter cup in the "L" of the two cookies.

Using a dab of frosting on top of the peanut butter cup and against the upright cookie, "glue" a whopper in the "L" for the turkey's head. Use the yellow frosting to glue the white tip of a candy corn for a mouth. Make two yellow dots near the top of the Whopper for the turkey's eyes. Stick a black sprinkle in the center of each yellow dot. Draw feet on the bottom Oreo at the base of the peanut butter cup with the yellow frosting. Draw a red wattle under the turkey's chin with the red frosting.

Chocolate and Cookie Acorns

  • Bite-size Nutter Butters
  • Hershey kisses
  • Mini chocolate chips

Melt half of the bag of mini chocolate chips in the microwave. Use the melt function, or melt for about 15 seconds at a time, stir, repeat, until the chocolate is melted.

Dip the Kisses in the chocolate, then press them onto the flat side of the Nutter Butter. Dip a chocolate chip in the melted chocolate and press it on the other side of the Nutter Butter to make a stem. Let the chocolate harden before serving.

If you are driving your Superior Honda to a Thanksgiving get-together, make sure it is running smoothly so that your creations are not stranded on their way to the party. Contact our service department to schedule a winter service appointment if you haven't done so yet.

Road Trip Through Fall


Kimberly Vardeman/Flickr Creative Commons

If you have a hankering to see the prettiest fall colors and take a road trip, stop by Superior Honda to have your vehicle serviced and made ready for a long trip. Then, pack up and head out. The leaves change sooner in the north and later in the south, so if you think the leaves have passed their peak in Ohio, you can still catch some peak fall colors further south.

Weekend of October 25, 2014

Head over to the Smokey Mountains and the Blue Ridge Parkway to catch fall colors combined with rushing rivers, huge waterfalls and extended vistas. Be sure to bring a warm jacket - you may not need it all the time, but the nights are quite cool as are some of the days.

The Cumberland Plateau, including the Cumberland Caverns, has not quite hit its peak but is expected to by the week of October 27, 2014. You still catch some great colors and postcard-perfect landscaping photos during this weekend, but you'll see more color in the upcoming week.

Weekend of November 1, 2014

Since the western edge of Middle Tennessee is warmer than the eastern edge and East Tennessee, the fall colors won't peak until the weekend of November 1, 2014. You can combine a trip to get some great pictures, visit many of Nashville's historical sites, and catch some great music all at the same time.

November Peaks

If you can't get away this weekend or next weekend, you can plan a longer road trip to the south to catch the fall colors throughout November in Texas, Louisiana and Florida. If you decide to head to Florida, be sure to visit inland where you'll find more deciduous trees, but take the time to visit the beaches in St. Petersburg and Clearwater.

If you head out to Louisiana, be sure to visit Bourbon Street in New Orleans. And in Texas, visit the many historical sites, Galveston and Dallas.

Stop by Superior Honda to have your vehicle serviced before you go - and if you are in the market for a new vehicle, consider picking out your next Honda before you go. You'll be able to see the fall colors from the comfort of a brand new car.

To make it easier to find the perfect vehicle at Superior Honda, we have an online showroom where you can enter price, miles per gallon and the horsepower rating of a vehicle. Using the sliders, enter the information you want and choose from the vehicles that appear.

Price Range

You can leave the price range set at $16,000 to $46,000 if you are not as concerned with the pricing. If you are, you can move the slider to change the minimum and maximum price range.

Miles per Gallon

If fuel economy is your first priority when choosing a vehicle, adjust the slider to the minimum and maximum fuel mileage you would like in a vehicle.

Horsepower

If horsepower is your concern, move the slider to the horsepower rating you require.

Combining it All Together

Play with the sliders to get the perfect combination of price, fuel economy and horsepower rating. If you are going to use the vehicle for a longer commute, you may want to slide the fuel economy slider over to the far left, leaving the horsepower and the price sliders at their default locations. Moving the slider to 100-105 miles per gallon brings up the 2014 Honda Fit EV hatchback.

On the new page, you can see the available colors, exterior photos of the vehicle, and watch a video of the vehicle. You can also fill out the form to the right for more information on the vehicle, or you can search our web page for that particular model or others like it to learn more about it, including convenience features, safety features, entertainment features and security features.

Complete Research

Once you have completed your research - and you may have found more than one vehicle that peaks your interest, stop by Superior Honda to test drive the vehicles you are interested in. When you arrive at our lot, a salesperson will be available to get you a test drive and to answer any questions you have about the particular models you are interested in.

Your salesperson can also direct you to similar vehicles with similar traits if you find that those you chose online are not what you may have expected or you decide you would rather have something else after your test drive.

How often should you get an oil change?


Robert Couse-Baker/Flickr Creative Commons

Have you ever brought your vehicle into an oil lube place for an oil change when you didn't need it? If you have an older vehicle without an oil monitor, you may have. And, if you are the type who goes by the window sticker, you have most likely changed the oil long before it was due. These places often put 3,000 miles on the sticker even if you use synthetic oil or if your Honda recommendation is in 7,500 miles. Instead of playing guessing games, you can check to see if you really need an oil change by stopping by Superior Honda or by checking your owner's manual.

Oil Monitors

Many of the new vehicles have oil monitors. Instead of guessing, pay attention to the monitor. It looks at how you drive and where you drive to determine whether you should change the oil sooner rather than later. The monitor takes into consideration the type of driving you typically do, whether normal or severe, and will light up when the oil has just a little life left in it.

Owner's Manual

If your vehicle doesn't have a monitor, check your owner's manual. Add the oil change date to your calendar. If the manual states a certain mileage or a time frame, it's whichever comes first. If you know you're not going to put the requisite miles on the vehicle before the time frame, a calendar reminder is a great way. Otherwise, change the mileage on the window sticker to show the proper mileage.

Severe vs. Normal Driving

If you are not sure whether your driving is severe, you can get an oil analysis. This tells you the condition of the oil and it could let you know if your vehicle's engine is having any problems. The samples of your vehicle's oil will show traces of coolant or fuel - you may be able to avert being stranded if you know ahead of time that your engine has an issue.

Why Shouldn't I Follow the 3,000-Mile Rule?

Oil companies are making extended-life oils that guarantee a specific mileage before the oil breaks down. Furthermore, engines are made better - they have closer tolerances - so it's not necessary to change the oil quite so often.

You can save yourself quite a bit toward the cost of ownership of your vehicle by following the manufacturer's recommendations rather than changing the oil every 3,000 miles. You'll also save yourself money if you stop by Superior Honda as our techs tell you the correct mileage to change your oil and don't assume that it has to be done every 3,000 miles.


Top Car Add-Ons

When you buy a new Honda at Superior Honda, the first thing you want to do is to make it your own. You can do that by adding accessories to suit your style. You can find interior accessories, exterior accessories and even accessories for the engine.

Engine Accessories

Dress up your engine with bolt covers in different colors. Add wiring harness covers to match. Add an air intake system - depending on the system, you might gain a few horsepower. You could also change out the alternator for a chrome alternator to further dress up your engine.

Exterior Accessories

If your Honda doesn't have a spoiler, add a spoiler to change its look. Add window deflectors - not only to change the look, but to add a bit of personal style. If you didn't order your Honda with special rims, change the rims to something that screams your name.

Additional exterior accessories you might consider include a moon roof deflector, hood bug deflector, bra, pin striping, wheel locks to protect your wheels, and tail light covers. A splash guard set protect the paint from caked-on mud, snow and ice.

Interior Accessories

Change the look of the interior by adding seat covers, changing the gear shift knob, adding a cover for the steering wheel and adding floor mats. You can find floor mats with cartoon characters, branded floor mats, or even get the WeatherTech floor mats to better protect the carpet.

Add illuminated door sill trim for a neat effect when you open the door. If you have an SUV and love to go tailgating or camping, add a tailgate tent. You might also want to add a first aid kit and a cargo organizer in your trunk or in the cargo space of your SUV. Cargo tie-down hooks for SUVs also come in handy when you need to keep something in place.

A cargo liner is great for protecting carpets if you haul a lot of cargo or if you want to protect your carpet from pets.

Stop by Superior Honda today to test drive a new Honda. Ask your salesperson about any of these accessories or other accessories such as turbo chargers, rear view cameras and DVD players that may not come standard with the make and model you are interested in.


Car Maintenance at Superior Honda


Joe Monin/Flickr Creative Commons

Vehicle maintenance is important throughout the year; however, some service must be done during the fall months to ready your vehicle for the winter. You should bring your vehicle into Superior Honda to have regular maintenance completed pursuant to the manufacturer's recommendations, plus you should stop by for any extra maintenance or service you may need.

Tires

If you live in an area where the temperature consistently drops below 45 degrees Fahrenheit during the hours you travel, you should switch to winter tires. All-season tires tend to lose their suppleness in cold weather; thus they lose their ability to grip the road.

Service Intervals

Your owner's manual may say to do certain maintenance after so many months or years. You may run into a situation wherein your instrument panel tells you it's time for service months before you expect it. Since the instrument panel notifications are set off by a computer that monitors the engine and other systems, you should bring your vehicle in if it alerts you. The system may see that you used your vehicle under severe conditions, such as towing in the mountains or consistent driving on steep roads.

Brakes

If you notice anything at all wrong with your brakes, including squealing, vibrating and grabbing, be sure to stop by Superior Honda to have them checked. Squealing means the pads are thin. The squealing is caused by a low-wear indicator rubbing on the rotors. If you let it continue to rub, you will score the rotors so much that they can't be turned without making them too thin.

Timing Belts

When the manufacturer recommends changing the timing belt at a certain mileage, be sure you heed those recommendations. The timing belt rarely breaks, but it does stretch past its useful life. When it does, the tensioner can no longer keep it tight. If this happens, or if the belt does break, the valves and pistons will attempt to occupy the same place at the same time - and that is usually catastrophic. If the engine is an interference engine, there is a good chance of this happening. If not, this could still happen, but it is rare. Most engines with more than two valves per cylinder are interference engines. Also, some engines with two valves per cylinder are interference engines, though that is rare.

Be sure to keep up with service on your vehicle, including any extra service you may need for different seasons. Stop by or call Superior Honda to make an appointment now if it's time for service.

2015 Honda Civic


Superior Honda should have some new players on the court this fall. The 2015 Honda Civic - the coupe, sedan, hybrid and si - doesn't have a release date as of yet, but we're hoping for mid to late fall. The over-40-year-old model is still popular and Honda has done a great job with keeping up with new technology.

The changes for the new model year are not heavy as the Civic's styling was recently freshened in 2013 and its infotainment system was upgraded in 2014. However, there are some changes. As for design, the Civic borrowed some ideas from the Accord, including a black honeycomb mesh grille and a new "open-mouth" bumper.

Some trim levels now feature integrated fog lights, new clear-lens cornering lights, a new rear bumper design and a chrome finishing bar in the back. The front and rear glass are still heavily raked, yet the Civic has a new - different - look to it.

For those that love the bi-level instrument panel, that stayed. However, the interior has changed considerably as far as materials. The Civic now has soft-touch vinyl where your elbows and hands make the most contact with the vehicle.

Additionally, the Civic uses more high-strength steel, thicker windshield and front window glass, stiffer side pillars and more soundproofing in the floor, doors, rear tray and dash. You will most likely not be able to hear the Civic running at an idle. Even while you are driving, road noise has been significantly decreased.

The powertrain has seen some upgrades, too. Since Honda no longer uses its five-speed automatic transmission, the Civic now has a continuously variable transmission (CVT). This also helps get the Civic better fuel economy. The Civic also has a new engine - a four-cylinder engine that puts out 140 horsepower. The base model gets 33 mpg* combined highway and city driving.

Don't forget about the Civic hybrid, also coming out soon. This model is expected to get 45 mpg* combined. And, of course, there's the Si - the hot rod model. The Si features a 2.4-liter engine that puts out 201 horsepower. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the 2014 as a Top Safety Pick+, so we expect the 2015 model year will make the grade.

Keep your eye on this space or stop by Superior Honda for more information on the 2015 Honda Civic as it becomes available.

Fuel Efficiency and Getting the Most Out of Your Honda


You just purchased a Honda from Superior Honda, and you want to know how to get the most out of this fuel-efficient vehicle - making it more fuel efficient than ever. Keeping up with vehicle maintenance and changing your style of driving can get you an extra 30 percent fuel efficiency over what you are currently getting.

Don't brake hard. Hard braking means faster starts - this could cause you to use up to 40 percent more fuel. Instead, brake slowly - which means you have to follow the vehicle in front of you at a safe distance. If you don't have to come to a complete stop, you end up saving fuel.

Drive at a steady speed. If the speed limit is 75 mph, increasing your speed from 55 mph to 75 mph could raise fuel consumption by up to 20 percent. Not every vehicle follows this rule of thumb, though. Check your mileage at 75, at 70, 65 and 55 to see where you get the best fuel efficiency.

Proper tire inflation also increases fuel efficiency. If the tires are too low, there is more resistance between the tire and the roadway, thus decreasing fuel efficiency. The correct air pressure in pounds per square inch is stamped on the side of the tire.

Use cruise control whenever you can. Maintaining a steady speed increases fuel efficiency and cruise control keeps you at a steady speed. It also reduces the temptation for speeding and could save you an expensive ticket.

Use the proper grade of fuel. If the manufacturer says to run regular fuel, run regular. Using a higher grade often decreases fuel economy. Engines are built to run on a certain octane and using a higher octane can wreak havoc with fuel economy. Using a lower octane than recommended can cause detonation.

Service your vehicle as recommended by Honda. Dirty air filters cause the engine to use more fuel. Also, using the oil with higher viscosity than recommended causes resistance in the engine, which means it needs more fuel to run properly.

Stop by Superior Honda today to get your vehicle serviced if it's been some time since your last service appointment. If your vehicle is older, you may want to replace it with something newer as the newer engines have better fuel economy.
