Why Honda is the Best Choice - August 11, 2015


You've been driving a Honda for as long as you can remember - and when it's time for a new vehicle because you want to upgrade or because you decided you want to change the color, the first place you go is Superior Honda. Why? Because you think that Honda is the best choice. Even though you may have never thought about it - you just like Honda models - you know in the back of your mind that you can't do better than a Honda.

Some of the things that people find great about Honda models is that they are dependable and are low maintenance. That means there is no fuss to owning a Honda. You know that five people fit in five-passenger vehicles without a problem, the Honda gets excellent gas mileage and the trunk will hold just about everything except the kitchen sink. Well, it will even hold the kitchen sink if you take the fifth person's luggage out.

Hook, Line and Sinker

The seduction of a Honda is very subtle. You get hooked before you even know it. When you see the Accord, you don't even realize that there are thousands of parts that are snapped, bolted, welded and glued together to make this great machine. You see the Honda as one piece. Those thousands of pieces make up a fuel efficient engine, a highly responsive transmission - even the CVT - excellent steering and suspension and ultra comfortable seats.

Quality

Whether you get into a Honda from Superior Honda for the first time ever or for the seventh time, you'll see that the materials are quality materials. From premium cloth or leather interiors to the excellent paint jobs, you'll be hard-pressed to find a problem with the quality of a Honda. Even the engine and transmission are of high quality.

You'll find that when you follow the maintenance schedule, you'll very rarely see the inside of our service department except for normal wear and tear items such as brakes, certain suspension parts and engine accessories that have a typical wear date. Those accessories may include but are not limited to the alternator, battery, water and power steering pumps and air conditioning unit - to name a few.




Wiggle Your Toes Day - Best Beaches in the US - August 6, 2015


Before the summer is over, take a road trip to one or more of the best beaches in the United States. Both of these are located in Florida and are about 7 to 8 hours apart, so if you have the time, visit both. Before you leave for the road trip, have your vehicle serviced at Superior Honda. And, make plans to stop at historical spots, museums and other places of interest or attractions between Cincinnati and Florida.

Destin

Destin, Florida features white beaches, lots of golf and tons of fishing. Visit the Emerald Coast to leave your cares behind. Destin is on the Gulf Coast so the water is calm and warm - unless there's a storm brewing, in which case, you'll need your surfboard. Pick from several world-class resorts or rentals and make sure you have time for shopping. The average temperatures in Destin for August are 90 degrees Fahrenheit for the high and 70 degrees Fahrenheit for the low.

Beaches in the area include the Pompano Street Public Beach, Shores at Crystal Beach Public Beach and Park and O'Steen Public Access Beach. And, Ft. Walton Beach isn't too far away - be sure to visit that beach, too.

Clearwater Beach

Visit this sugar white sand beach and walk or swim for miles. Enjoy palm trees, jet skis, boating, bars, dining, shopping and more. This family beach has won several awards including "Beach Lovers Hot List" in 2012 from Florida Travel and Life, "America's Secret Beaches: 25 Secluded Sunspots" in 2012 from USA Today Go Escapes, Reader's Choice Best Beaches for Families in 2012 from Washington Family Magazine, TripAdvisor's Traveler's Choice Awards Best Beaches in 2011 and more.

If you planned on buying or leasing a new Honda this summer, stop by our showroom to test drive the vehicle you want for your family so you can drive something brand new on your Florida beach road trip.



Yummy Steak Recipes - August 4, 2015


Make sure your Honda has been serviced at Superior Honda or pick up that new vehicle you have been thinking about all summer, then pack up the steaks and everything that goes with them and head out to your favorite barbecue spot, whether it's a park or a private place in the woods. Don't forget to prep the steaks ahead of time or bring everything you need for a favorite recipe.

Spicy Ribeye with Peppers, Onions and Mushrooms

For each steak, you'll need the following ingredients. Spices are to taste and for maximum flavor, be sure to cover the steaks liberally.

  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Badia Redfish seasoning
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • ½ medium green pepper
  • ½ medium onion
  • ½ cup sliced mushrooms - pick your favorite
  • 2 tsp. Bacon fat

Melt the bacon fat in a cast iron pan if you are pan frying the steak. If you are cooking them on the grill, create a "pan" from heavy duty aluminum foil and melt the bacon fat in the foil. Slice the vegetables lengthwise. Add them to the bacon fat and cook over low heat until they are hot yet crispy - about 10 minutes.

If you are cooking the vegetables and the steaks in the same pan, add the veggies about 5 minutes before you add the steaks.

Coat the steaks with the spices. Cook on a hot grill or in a hot pan to your preference. Ribeye is best served when it's seared on the outside with a warm red center. Cover the steaks with the vegetables and the pan drippings.

Serve with potato or macaroni salad, Cole slaw, or any of your other favorite sides.

Visit Superior Honda

Be sure to call Superior Honda for a service appointment - or to just check your vehicle before a long road trip if you've recently had your vehicle serviced or if you recently bought a new vehicle. If you are thinking of getting a new vehicle, stop by our showroom to test drive the vehicle that best fits your needs.




Honda Concept Cars - July 30, 2015


*Concept vehicle pictured -- not available for purchase.

Concept cars don't always make it to dealership showrooms; however, some do, whether the designers stick closely to the original idea or use the ideas to make new concept cars. In the future you may see several Honda concept cars that become reality - and when they do, you'll get to test drive them at Superior Honda.

The Honda FC Sport Concept

This model is one that you won't see. It made its entry at the 2008 Los Angeles Car Show; and it is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell. The FC Sport Concept uses a three-seat design like the Mclaren F1. Although you won't see this one, don't be surprised if you see certain parts of this model used in upcoming models.

Honda OSM Concept

Though this vehicle, first shown at the 2008 British Motor Show, wasn't produced, you've seen concepts from this vehicle in some of today's vehicles. This open study model (OSM) was one of the first of Honda's low emissions level car - a hybrid - and you can now see that technology in several Honda models.

Honda "Small Hybrid Sports" Concept

This model was first shown at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show. It was meant to show that you can be green and sporty at the same time. Though this model was a design study only and helped to form technology for several vehicles.

Honda Linian Roadster Concept

This model was first seen at the 2008 Beijing Car Show; and was actually the second Linian concept car. This model was created for China; and Honda partnered with Guangzhou Automotive to create it. The Linian was created to replace the S2000

Stop by Superior Honda today to test drive your next new vehicle - and keep in mind that some of the technology in today's vehicles was in concept mode in the past, including the hybrid models and the CR-Z model.




What Else Does Honda Make? - July 28, 2015


Most people know that Honda makes cars and motorcycles, but the company makes lots of other things, too. You've seen the blog posts about the ASIMO robot and if you're into boating, you probably know Honda makes boat engines. Additionally, the company makes power equipment, aircraft, solar cells, mountain bikes and ATVs.

Motorcycles

Honda started producing motorcycles in 1955 and is the largest motorcycle manufacturer in Japan. In 1982, when production was at its peak, Honda manufactured nearly three million bikes per year. That figure dropped to approximately 550,000 bikes by 2006, yet it was still higher than the three domestic competitors.

Power Equipment

The first engine for power equipment was built in 1953 - the H-type engine. You'll find the Honda name on items such as tillers, engines, riding mowers, lawn mowers, trimmers, robotic lawn mowers, blowers, hedge trimmers, sprayers, snowthrowers, welding power supplies, generators, outboard engines, pumps, electric four-wheel scooters, inflatable boats and compact household cogeneration units.

Engines include boat motors and racing engines. The entire starting field of the 2010 Indianapolis 500 - all 33 vehicles - featured Honda engines, and that was the fifth consecutive race where all vehicles featured Honda engines. For that particular race, none of the drivers were knocked out because of engine problems.

Aircraft

Honda's HA-420 HondaJet uses new technology to increase aerodynamics and fuel efficiency while reducing drag levels. This reduces operating costs. The aircraft is manufactured by Honda Aircraft Company, a subsidiary of Honda.

Solar Cells

Honda Soltec is a subsidiary company of Honda, which started selling solar cells for residential use in October 2007. This company was dissolved since October 2013 with the exception of providing support for existing customers, however; you may still see Honda-branded solar cells out there.

Homemade Cleaning Supplies to Clean Tough Stains in Your Upholstery - July 23, 2015


Upholstery cleaners can be expensive - and sometimes, they just don't work. You can make your own so that you can get stains out of your Honda's seats, but be sure to test them on a part of the upholstery you can't see well to ensure that the cleaners don't do further damage. Even simple things like dish soap could remove a stain, but may leave residue or otherwise damage the fibers.

Upholstery Shampoo

Mix 2 cups of warm water with a squirt of dish washing soap. Mix the soap mixture at medium speed with a mixer so that you create a foam. Use the foam to clean the upholstery. This cleaner does not store so you need to use all of it immediately. It works on most drink and food stains; and it works on general dirt and grime that is built up.

Cleaning Paste

If you just need to clean a small spot, you can make a paste. Sift ½ cup baking soda and ½ cup cornstarch together. Add just enough water to make a thick paste. Spread the paste on the spot and let it dry - about a half hour. Once it's dry, brush off the paste, then vacuum up the crumbs.

Berry Stain Remover

The best way to get fresh berries is to pick your own. When you do that, it's hard to resist eating some on the way home. If you happen to get berry juice on your upholstery, you can remove it by mixing 1 tablespoon white vinegar with 2/3 cup rubbing alcohol. Mix well, then blot the mixture onto the stain with a clean white cloth.

Once the stain is gone, sponge the area with plain cold water and a clean white cloth; and then blot the area dry. Don't rub the area as you could spread the stain.

Introducing ASIMO, the Honda Robot - July 21, 2015


Honda has always looked ahead, whether in building cars, motorcycles - or robots. The ASIMO idea started in 1986 when Honda engineers wanted to make a walking robot. The earlier models - E1 through E3 - focused on making legs that would walk like a human. E4 through E6 focused on stair climbing and stabilization. To add balance and more functionality, a body, head and arms were added.

The first humanoid robot by Honda was the P1. This model was 6 feet, 2 inches and weighed in at 386 pounds. The P2 version continued working on stair ascending and descending, better walking and a friendlier design. Honda engineers also added wireless movements to the P2. The P3 saw a more compact ASIMO robot - 5 feet, 2 inches and 287 pounds.

Currently, the ASIMO can walk on uneven surfaces and terrain, navigate slopes, run, climb stairs, turn smoothly and grab objects. It can also understand simple voice commands - and respond to them. Using photo recognition, it can recognize a select group of individual people. And, it can avoid moving objects in its path.

After decades, Honda is still working on ASIMO to make it better. Currently, Honda demonstrates the robot around the world and helps inspire children to enter the sciences. Honda engineers plan on upgrading ASIMO so that it is able to help the elderly, the physically challenged or even to do dangerous jobs such as fighting fires or cleaning up toxic spills.

Visit Superior Honda

Stop by Superior Honda to test drive the model you are most interested in to see the advanced technology the manufacturer puts in its vehicles. Be sure to ask your salesperson about the newest features in the 2015 and 2016 model years; and whether we are running any lease or finance specials on the model you are interested in. If you just bought a Honda recently and it's time for maintenance, give our service department a call to set up a service appointment for maintenance.




Ghost Towns to Visit in the US - July 16, 2015


Before you plan your ghost town road trip, be sure to call Superior Honda for a service appointment to have your vehicle checked or serviced. If you planned on buying a new vehicle this summer, stop by to test drive a new Honda before you leave so that you can take a brand new vehicle on your road trip.

Bodie, California

Bodie is the largest unreconstructed ghost town in America. The town features 200 original preserved buildings including a saloon, jail and a schoolhouse. Bodie was established in 1859. Originally, this gold-mining town was just a camp of 20 miners, including William S. Bodey, who discovered the gold in the area.

During the California Gold Rush, the small camp bloomed to a city with over 10,000 people, 60 bars and a red-light district. By 1942, Bodie was abandoned. The California parks system protects the site, but leaves in in a state of "arrested decay." When you visit, you'll see fully stocked stores, chairs, pool tables and cutlery right where it was left all those years ago.

Silver City, Idaho

Visit the Owyhee Mountains and Silver City in southwestern Idaho. Silver City was founded in 1864 as a gold and silver mining town. The town has not been restored for tourists - it is left as it was when it was abandoned. As of today, 40 preserved buildings remain, including the old hotel. Though there are few guest amenities, the hotel has 20 rooms with modern facilities. The stay is free, though the owner asks for a donation if you had a good experience staying in a building that has been abandoned.

Monson Village, New Hampshire

Monson Village was settled in 1737 and was one of the first inland settlements in the state. The Gould House, which was built in 1856, has been restored. Other than that, you'll find cellar holes and foundations of original homes. This "park" covers 221 acres and has trails so that you can follow the paths that once existed in this town. You'll have fun recreating what the village might have looked like as you travel the trails.

Taking Care Of Your Car In The Summer Heat - June 1, 2015


Taking care of your vehicle in the summer heat is just as important as taking care of it during the winter cold. The heat is brutal on fabrics, plastics and paint. When you pick up a new vehicle at Superior Honda, you'll want to make sure it stays looking new.

Use Sunshields and Tint

The sun's ultraviolet rays will ruin the interior of your vehicle. They will fade the colors, crack the plastics and will damage leather seats. If you can't park your vehicle in a garage, be sure to use a sunshade in the windshield to block the rays. Tinting your windows also helps protect the interior of your vehicle. Even a light tint will keep out a lot of the damaging ultraviolet rays.

Wash and Wax

Washing and waxing your vehicle helps keep the paint in good condition. It keeps the spring and summer bugs off, along with the dirt and dust that damages paint. Keeping a good coat of wax on the paint also protects the paint from the elements. Also be sure to wash your vehicle underneath especially if you drove through mud and dirt. Not only does it keep anything acidic from eating the underside, but it makes it easier to detect any leaks.

Detailing

Be sure you keep the interior detailed. Use the proper chemicals on the respective materials to keep the materials pliable so they won't be dried out by the sun. You can prolong cracking by keeping the materials soft and clean.

Visit Superior Honda

Stop by Superior Honda to test drive your next new vehicle. Be sure to ask your salesperson about any finance or lease specials we may be running on the model you are interested in. Also ask about the features for the different trim levels; and ask about additional available options for the trim level you are interested in.




Top Accessories for Your Honda - May 28, 2015


Whether you have a brand new Honda, something that is a few years old or a classic model, you can add accessories to your vehicle to make it more convenient to drive, add safety accessories or just add something to change the look of your car. Superior Honda has parts and accessories available so that you can spiff up your ride.

Exterior Accessories

If your Honda has roof rails, you can add racks for bikes, kayaks, extra storage, skis and more. Add fog lights, spoilers, custom rims, different mirrors and more. You can also add nose bras, hood shields and rain guards for the windows. You can change the looks of your Honda with these accessories to make it your own.

Interior Accessories

Interior accessories are available to help maintain your Honda and to make driving it more enjoyable - and safer. If your vehicle doesn't have a backup camera and it is not an available item for the model and trim level you choose, you can purchase a separate backup camera.

Add cargo management items to help organize the cargo and to keep it from moving around in the back of an SUV or the trunk. Floor mats protect your Honda's carpets from mud, snow and spilled drinks.

Many models now have remote start, but if you have a model that does not offer remote start or you have an older model, you can pick up a remote start kit so that you can get into a warm - or cool, as the season dictates - vehicle in the morning. Door sill illuminated trim and bumper appliques change the look of your vehicle and protect those parts.

Why You Should Buy A Honda - May 18, 2015


When you decide to buy a new vehicle, you have to make several decisions, from what model to which dealership to use and whether to lease or purchase. When deciding which make you are interested in, consider the cost of the vehicle, monthly payment costs, the cost to own the vehicle for the term of the lease or for five years if you purchase, and your personal tastes as they apply to styling. Additionally, there are other things you should take into consideration. Superior Honda can help you with many of these decisions.

Mechanical Issues

Some vehicles break down more often than others and some can be more expensive to repair. Honda has a reputation - even among mechanics who don't work at dealerships - to be reliable vehicles that last "forever" as long as you keep up with the maintenance. If something does break, parts are reasonably priced.

Styling and Body

Styling is a personal choice that is important - after all, you don't want to drive an ugly car. Honda created a body style that appeals to most people and is functional. Most Honda models are aerodynamic yet provide good looks and allow for plenty of room inside the cabin.

Technology

Honda offers a lot of technology, even in its base models. And the brand also offers several types of each body style. Instead of having just one SUV or just one sedan to choose from, you have several. Additionally, you have a few "green" versions to choose from, too. Technological features range from Bluetooth to active safety features such as blind spot detection and cross traffic alert.

Visit Superior Honda

To find out if a Honda is really for you, stop by Superior Honda to test drive one or more models. Ask your salesperson about various features and which trim levels offer certain features. You can also order a lower trim level with additional options if you don't want or need all the bells and whistles on the higher trim levels or if it means that you would not qualify for the vehicle at a higher trim level.
