Its body is specially designed to distribute energy during a collision in order to mitigate damage.

Additional features like an anti-lock braking system with electronic brake distribution, multiple-threshold front airbags, and a tire pressure monitoring system make the new Pilot even safer.

Winter means holiday parties, quality time with family, and plenty of hours spent watching football. Unfortunately, it can also mean additional trouble for your car. Allen Honda, your College Station, Bryan, and Conroe Honda dealership, wants to help you avoid any potential challenges the season may bring to your car. Here are some tips we hope will help you winterize your Honda:
Invest in Windshield Accessories
Investing in relatively inexpensive things like winter wiper fluid and wiper blades can save you a lot of trouble in the winter. We all know how much of a pain it is to have to wait in the car in the morning as the ice on the windshield melts. Winter wiper blades can cut through ice and save you time. And winter wiper fluid won't freeze. So, it'll always be at your disposal when you need it.
Check Your Fluids
The cold weather can most definitely affect your fluid levels. It's best to get them topped off before it gets really chilly. Additionally, a pre-winter oil change, especially if it's almost time to get one anyway, is a great idea. Pay special attention to the level of antifreeze in your car. If it's a little off, your coolant could end up freezing, which causes your engine to heat up dramatically.
Inspect the Basics
The beginning of every winter and every summer is a great time to get your brakes, tires, battery, hoses, and belts checked out. Getting your hoses, belts, and battery inspected is especially beneficial in the winter because the cold weather can do some damage to these essential components of your car.
Allen Honda, your College Station and Conroe Honda dealership, can help you get your Honda ready for the winter. The qualified technicians at our service center would be more than happy to thoroughly inspect your car and fulfill its maintenance needs. Don't hesitate to visit us, and don't forget to print out some of our service coupons before you stop by!
At Allen Honda, we strive to help our customers in College Station and around Texas keep up with the latest Honda news and Honda stories. First of all, we'd like to introduce you to Edythe, an inspiring woman and Honda owner:
Secondly, we'd like to announce that we just got word that Honda has a new model in the works that's slated to be fully revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show on November 20. This new model, called the S660, will be a successor to the Honda Beat.
If you're a serious Honda fan, you probably remember the Beat, a two-seat roadster kei car produced in the 90s. The Beat was discontinued in 1996 but still has a pretty decent following in Japan and around the world. In fact, in 2010, Beat owners joined forces to hold the largest parade of Honda cars in world history.
The S660 is rumored to have a 660cc engine, which is the largest engine size allowed by kei car standards. Honda enthusiasts also speculate that the new version of the Honda Beat's engine will be turbocharged, which means the little car will hold its own in comparison to other kei cars in terms of engine power.
As of now, it seems like the S660 will only be offered to Japanese customers. There is a chance, though, that a version with a larger, 1-litre engine will be offered in other markets. With the recent success of compact vehicles like smart cars and the Fiat 500, it seems like the new Beat could achieve success on a pretty wide scale around the globe.
We'll let you know if we hear anything else about the Honda S660's features. Stay tuned for other news about the latest Honda models and Honda owners doing great things. And stop by Allen Honda, your Texas Honda dealership in College Station, to take a test drive of one of the outstanding 2014 models on our lot!
Here at Allen Honda, we want to make finding the right car in College Station easier. If you're looking for a new truck, the 2014 Honda Ridgeline is most definitely a solid option. The new Ridgeline's safety features, exterior features, and performance all increase the appeal of this sturdy, sleek truck. Here are some key things to know about 2014 Honda Ridgeline models:
2014 Honda Ridgeline Safety Features
New Ridgeline models come with an anti-lock braking system, which affects each wheel individually and allows for better, more controlled braking. 2014 Ridgeline trucks also come with front and side airbags equipped with advanced sensors that allow for more effective deployment. They only deploy when necessary and deploy with minimized force depending on factors like the weight of passengers.
Features like daytime running lights, active head restraints, and a tire pressure monitoring system also make this 2014 Honda truck one of the safest in its class. It's no wonder that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the Ridgeline a 2014 Top Pick.
2014 Honda Ridgeline Exterior Features
The Honda Ridgeline's exterior features definitely add to its appeal. The truck's dual-action tailgate flips down and opens to the side to make both tailgating and loading the truck convenient. Plus, the Ridgeline's in-bed truck offers 8.5-cubic feet of secure, hidden storage space, and its steel-reinforced composite cargo bed offers twice the strength of a standard steel bed.
2014 Honda Ridgeline Performance
The Ridgeline performs just as well on the road as many popular V-8 trucks thanks to its 3.5-liter, 24-valve VTEX V-6 engine that produces 250 horsepower. If you want a truck that can handle all off-road conditions, the new Ridgeline won't disappoint. Its Variable Torque Management 4-Wheel Drive System ensures that the truck's wheels will never get stuck in the mud or experience issues with gravel or ice. 4-Wheel Independent Suspension also helps in off-road conditions by allowing each of the Ridgeline's wheels to work independently.
These are just some of the ways the 2014 Honda Ridgeline distinguishes itself. If you want to experience how it performs firsthand, stop by Allen Honda and take a test-drive!

Keep your Honda running like new with a clean engine. Over time, debris collects in the engine, especially when there are extreme seasons, like a Texas summer. This debris can built up and overtime corrode your engine. Make sure you clean your engine every two to three months to ensure nothing is causing your engine distress. Allen Honda’s Service Center has made it easy to do it yourself, check how to below!
Preparing Your Engine
Prepping your engine before you clean it is the most important step. Although engines are waterproof, you still need to be cautious when being the necessary steps to clean your engine. First, remove all excess debris such as leaves, sticks or whatever might be hiding under your hood. After all the extra debris has been remove, prepare your engine for getting wet. Cover all sensors, distributor, spark plus openings and any other electrical devices with plastic bags and then seal them with a rubber band. They do not need to be waterproof, just covered.
Your engine is easier to clean when warm so let your engine run for a minute or two so it’s not hot to the touch, just warm.
Use a citrus or water based degreaser to clean your engine and start from the lower parts and move your way up. This way you avoid any degreaser dripping on you while cleaning. Depending on the size of your engine, a small or large brush should work fine. If the cleaner gets on your car, you may want to re-wax that section since the degreaser removes it. Once the entire engine is coated, allow it to sit for three to five minutes, but make sure it doesn’t dry.
Hosing Off Engine
Hose off your engine, but be extra careful with high-pressured nozzles so you don’t remove the plastic bags or nodules. Allow it to air dry for 10 minutes before you towel dry the remaining water spots. Once the engine is dry, remove the plastic bags and allow the engine to run for up to five minutes.
To go the extra mile, apply a coating of engine protectant on your hoses and plastic shields.
