All-New 2016 Pilot Revealed!


The old version of the Honda Pilot looked more like an SUV than a minivan since its boxy design hid the fact that it was a minivan. However, the new 2016 model threw the box style to the wayside in favor of curvy lines. The three-row "family SUV" is longer this time around, so its minivan status is even more evident. If you are in the market for a family mover that has SUV features, stop by Superior Honda to test drive the 2016 Pilot when it becomes available.

In addition to the new length, the family SUV has sliding rear doors and a HondaVac to make it easier to clean up after a trip to the beach. The Pilot and a new version of the Odyssey, due out next year, share their basic structures with the Acura MDX. While Honda still hasn't released much about the new Pilot's specifications, it does have a 110.9-inch wheelbase, which is nearly 2 inches longer than before. The overall length of the vehicle has been increased by 3.5 inches to give the rear seat and cargo area extra space. Even so, the Pilot is still 8 inches shorter than the Odyssey.

Even though the 2016 Pilot is longer, it is 300 pounds lighter than the 2015 model year version. Additionally, the Pilot got a new engine - a 3.5-liter V-6. This engine is the same one that is in the MDX. Consumers can choose the six-speed that is included on the MDX model's top trims or they can choose the nine-speed transmission with automatic start-stop, sourced by ZF.

While Honda has not released power figures, this same engine in the MDX makes 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. The engine switches between three- and six-cylinder modes - Variable Cylinder Management - to save on fuel economy. When the driver is not requesting much of the engine, it will cut out three of the six cylinders.

The Pilot will keep the front-wheel drive configuration, but it will have an improved four-wheel drive version available. It is expected that Honda is using two electronically controlled clutch packs - one on each side of the rear differential - for maximum traction.

New features include a tech locker in the center console that is large enough for a purse; up to five USB ports, with four of them having the ability to charge at 2.5 amps; a reversible cargo lid to keep wet gear off the carpet in the cargo area; and a new seven-passenger configuration with captain's chairs in the second row on the higher trim levels.

Visit Superior Honda

Keep your eye on this space or visit Superior Honda for more information on the 2016 Pilot as it becomes available. The Pilot is expected to be here sometime this summer.

The 2015 CR-V Named Best Resell Value by KBB


If you are in the market for a new vehicle yet know you are going to resell the vehicle in a couple of years when you upgrade, stop by Superior Honda to test drive the 2015 Honda CR-V. The 2015 Honda CR-V tends to keep its resale value so that Kelly Blue Book named it car with the best resale value out of all of the 2015 model years. While vehicles won for certain segments, for example, the Fit won for projected resale value after five years of ownership, the CR-V was one of the Top 10 Best Resale value vehicles in America.

You can take a road trip from Rockbridge to Lancaster - about 107 miles - in one day if you don't make too many stops. However, to fully enjoy this trip, plan a long weekend road trip so you can enjoy most of what this trip has to offer.

What You'll See in General

When you travel through Hocking Hills you'll see a wooded landscape filled with gorges, hollows and caves. You'll also see tons of small town Americana, waterfalls, state park trails and recess caves. You'll find plenty of places to stay including cozy cabins and historic inns.

Places to Stop

In Rockbridge, stop at Hocking State Forest for a picnic and to scope out some of the wildlife. Also in Rockbridge, stop by Hocking Hills Canopy Tours. When you get to Logan, stop for a rest or a hike in Hocking Hills State Park.

Plan to spend a night in Logan at the Inn and Spa at Cedar Falls. This will allow you to have plenty of time to explore the parks and hiking trails. Also in Logan, be sure to visit the Columbus Washboard Factory where they still make old-timey washboards; and stop by the Paul A. Johnson Pencil Sharpener Museum.

Service Specials at Superior Honda


Owen Mathias/Flickr Creative Commons

When it comes to vehicle maintenance, some think it's a necessary evil, but you can reduce some of the evilness by bringing your vehicle in to Superior Honda - and you can erase the rest of the evilness with our service specials. We promise, it's painless! Our lounge features free WiFi, a 42-inch plasma television, kid stuff for the kids, free coffee and more. Even making the appointment is painless - call our service center or visit our online service page to email or make an appointment online.

Express Service Oil and Filter Change

Until April 7, 2015, when you come in for an oil change, you'll get a free multi-point inspection. Our oil change and inspection is quick and painless so you can wait for your vehicle. There's no need to arrange for a ride. Oil changes for standard models are $25.99; and oil changes for vehicles that use 0W-20 oil are $35.99. We use only genuine Honda parts. The online coupon must be presented at the time of purchase.

Tires

Take $40 off a set of four new tires. You must present the online coupon at the time of purchase. This special is good until April 7, 2015.

Timing Belt and Water Pump

Until April 7, 2015, take $80 off a timing belt and/or water pump service. In may cases, the water pump is turned by the timing belt instead of the serpentine belt, which means it is inside the timing belt cover. If your water pump fails it is always advisable to replace the timing belt in these cases as a water pump leak or bad pulley will most likely damage or put excessive wear on the timing belt.

The timing belt ensures that the camshaft and crankshaft have the proper intervals so that the valves and pistons don't try to occupy the same space at the same time; thus, it is important to change the timing belt at the manufacturer's recommended intervals. While the belt may look new, that doesn't mean it hasn't stretched. A stretched timing belt throws the timing of the engine off and could cause a loss of power or in extreme circumstances on interference engines, destruction of the engine.

Please print the coupon from the web site to take advantage of this deal.

$10 Off Scheduled Maintenance

If you have upcoming routine scheduled maintenance, call us to set up an appointment. Bring the online coupon with you to get $10 off scheduled maintenance for service at 10,000 miles, 30,000 miles, 60,000 miles, 75,000 miles 90,000 miles or "B" service. This offer expires on April 7, 2015.

Genuine Honda Battery

If you need a battery, stop by to get a genuine Honda battery for just $125. The battery includes a 100-month warranty. Regular price is $155. The online coupon must be presented at the time of purchase; and this offer expires on April 7, 2015.

How to Keep Your New Year's Resolution


mt 23/Flickr Creative Commons

Keeping a New Year's resolution is easy if you make easy resolutions. If you have a long-term resolution such as saving enough for a sizable down payment on a new Honda from Superior Honda, break the resolution down into smaller pieces. That way, you won't have to settle for something less than what you want.

Break it Down

If you want to save money, instead of saying that you're going to save $5,000 in the next six months, divide that amount by the number of weeks. It's easier to put away a bit of a time, especially if you set up a second bank account and have that amount transferred every week. Once you get used to that money being unavailable it's easier to keep that resolution - and it's easier to keep it when the money is automatically transferred from your checking account to your savings account. You'll have that new Honda in no time!

Forget the Outcome

Instead of making a resolution that you will lose 50 pounds this year, make a resolution that you'll walk a mile at least three times a week. Eventually, the weight will start falling off and before you know it, you'll have lost that 50 pounds - and maybe more! It's easier to remember to walk than it is to try to stick to a diet that you don't really want to be on.

Time, Time, Time

If you schedule time for your resolution it's easier to keep throughout the year. You have time in the morning to eat breakfast, have time to get ready for work, have time for grocery shopping or having a night out with friends. Work a time into your schedule for the journey to a resolution. If you decide to lose weight and use walking as a tool, get up 15 minutes earlier so you can do that mile every day before you get ready for work.

Work on Your Resolution with a Friend or Family Member

If you are working on your resolution with a friend or family member, you're more likely to stick to your resolution. Try that walk with a neighbor or a relative. See who can save the fastest to get a new car at Superior Honda.

Whatever you choose to do, keep track of your progress and if you feel like giving up, talk to your friend or relative about that little extra you're doing for yourself.



Holiday Road Trip Destinations


Tom Bricker/Flickr Creative Commons

If you would rather plan a road trip during the Christmas holidays instead of staying in Cincinnati, time is running short. Of course, you'll have several things to do before you can leave, including making reservations, having your vehicle serviced - or at least checked - at Superior Honda, packing for the trip and packing an emergency road kit in case you get stuck in a snowbank.

Visit the North Pole

Head east to North Pole, New York for your Christmas holidays. The Adirondack Mountains provide a realistic Santa's workshop. Additional stops should include the candy maker, a glass blower and Tannenbaum - a giant talking tree. Since the kids have probably mailed their letters to Santa already, they can add some last minute wishes. They just may get some neat ideas from Santa's workshop.

Polar Express

Hop over to the Polar Express in New Hampshire to ride New England's authentic rail expressway. The train leaves from North Conway Village and downtown Lincoln, so you have your choice of where to pick up the Express. The journey is a two-hour jaunt through the White Mountains. The whole family will enjoy seeing Santa and his elves and experience tons of Christmas joy.

Walt Disney World Florida

If you were thinking of road tripping to someplace warm, then head down to Kissimmee, Florida and Disney World. If you don't have the holiday fever by the time you get there, you'll certainly have it as soon as you step foot into Disney and Epcot Center. Fireworks, Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, Goofy, Donald, Minnie and more will keep the entire family occupied for hours.

If you get a pass to Epcot Center in addition to Disney, you'll experience how different cultures around the world celebrate Christmas.

Stop by Superior Honda

Stop by Superior Honda today to have your vehicle checked for the trip. If your vehicle hasn't been serviced in some time, have it serviced before you go - and be sure to have our technicians check the tires. If you let them know you are road tripping to Florida, they will let you know if older tires will make it there and back; or if you should replace them. And, if you were thinking about a new vehicle, instead of servicing your current vehicle, pick up a new SUV for your road trip.




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.


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


w3i_yu/Flickr Creative Commons

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.
