Caring for You Car and Preventing Pothole Damage

Spring has finally graced us with it’s presence but drivers need to proceed with caution due to winter’s aftermath.  

Potholes caring for car

Potholes are created with moisture seeps into the small cracks and crevices on the road and then freeze and thaw under the weight of cars.  This causes the roads to crumble eventually leading to holes in the road.

AAA has some great advice for motorists wanting to avoid pothole damage to their cars.

6 Way to Prevent Pothole Damage to Your Car
1.  Inspect Tires
Make sure tires have enough tread and are properly inflated. To check the tread depth, insert a quarter into the tread groove with Washington’s head upside down. The tread should cover part of Washington’s head. If it doesn’t, then it’s time to start shopping for new tires. When checking tire pressures, ensure they are inflated to the manufacturer’s recommended levels, which can be found in the owner’s manual or on a sticker on the driver’s door jamb. Do not use the pressure levels stamped on the sidewall of the tire.
2.  Inspect Suspension
Make certain struts and shock absorbers are in good condition. Changes in vehicle handling, excessive vibration or uneven tire wear can indicate bad shocks or struts.
3.  Slow Down
 If a pothole cannot be avoided, reduce speed safely being sure to check the rearview mirror before any abrupt braking. Hitting a pothole at higher speeds greatly increases the chance of damage to tires, wheels and suspension components.
4.  Beware of Puddles
A puddle of water can disguise a deep pothole.
5.  Check Alignment
If a vehicle pulls to the left of right, have the wheel alignment checked by a qualified technician.
6.  Recognize Noise and Vibrations

A hard pothole impact can dislodge wheel weights, damage a tire or wheel, and bend or even break suspension components. Any new or unusual noises or vibrations that appear after hitting a pothole should be inspected immediately by a certified technician.

Honda Wins IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+

5 of Honda’s 2014 models made the list for IIHS’s TOP SAFETY PICK

Honda received IIHS Top Safety Pick

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety announced on March 3rd, 2014 that 5 of Honda’s 2014 models received their coveted TOP SAFETY PICK recognition.

Earning the Highest Honor, the TOPS SAFETY PICK + was awarded to:

  1. Honda Accord Sedan
  2. Honda Accord Coup
  3. Honda Civic Sedan
  4. Honda Odyssey

The Honda Civic Coup was awarded Top Safety Pick.

Vehicles receiving the TOP SAFETY PICK award were tested for proficiency in protecting passengers from front, side and rear collisions as well as roll over and overlap front crashes.  To receive the TOP SAFETY PICK +, vehicles must include crash avoidance systems.

Some of the safety technology found in Honda’s TOP SAFETY PICK + winners are:

  • Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE): A Honda-exclusive body design that utilizes a network of connected structural elements to distribute frontal crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle. This helps reduce the force transferred to the cabin and more evenly disperse the forces transferred to other vehicles involved.
  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW): A small camera mounted at the top of the front windshield or a radar system mounted in the front grille can detect the presence of a vehicle in front of you. When the FCW system calculates that you are at risk of a collision with that vehicle, it immediately activates visual and/or audible alerts
  • Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA): During an understeer or oversteer condition, it can brake individual wheels and/or reduce engine power to help restore your intended course.
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW) : A small camera mounted at the top of the front windshield tracks lane markings on the road, and it can determine when the driver is making an unindicated departure from a detected lane[2]. Visual alerts will light up on the driver’s instrument panel and the system can also provide an audible warning
  • Dual Stage, Multiple Threshold Front Airbags (SRS):  These airbags are capable of being inflated at different rates depending on crash severity, seat-belt usage and/or other factors. Frontal airbags are designed to supplement the seat belts to help reduce the likelihood of head and upper body injuries in frontal crashes.
  • SmartVent Front Side Airbags: Designed to deploy and inflate quickly to maximize potential protection for properly seated occupants-helping to protect the driver’s or front passenger’s upper body from injury-or to vent before fully inflating if an occupant is in the side airbag deployment path, thereby decreasing the likelihood of an airbag-related injury.

Rear View Cameras now come standard on 17 of the 19 models in Honda’s 2014 lineup and will also be included in the 2015 FIT, launching this spring.

These awards come as no surprise to Honda’s loyal family of customers.  Superior mobility as well as a commitment to “Safety for Everyone” keeps them coming back.

Scott Honda’s Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Toy Drive Huge Success

The Keretzman Family stands in front of their car before driving their Honda Pilot full of toys to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

The Keretzman Family, Anthony, Stephanie and Parker stands in front of their Honda Pilot full of toys that they delivered to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia last week.

The exchange went something like this:

Stephanie Keretzman, “Hey Doug do you think we could run a toy drive for C.H.O.P.?”

Douglas P. Scott, “100%”

Stephanie, “Sweet!”

Now there was a little more to it, but the idea of a grass roots toy drive was perfect for Scott Honda and a great way for the Keretzman Family to give back after their son spent his holidays at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and was the recipient of a toy from the same kind of drive last year.  I will let Stephanie tell you more about their experience…

Our son Parker, now almost 14 months, unexpectedly had to spend his first 2 months of life at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia when he was born with a rare birth defect in 2012. He spent his first few holidays there, including Thanksgiving and Halloween, and was determined to be home for Christmas.  As Christmas was approaching, we were told about a special program at the hospital where we could choose special gifts for him, all of which were donated by generous people. Parker received his wonderful gifts just before his discharge on Christmas Eve. It meant so much to us and we knew right away that we wanted to give back in some way. This year we thought teaming up with Scott Honda was a perfect opportunity to gather donations for the kids who had to spend this holiday in the hospital. The staff was so grateful for the toys and we’re so happy to help put smiles on the faces of those kids. Parker is 100% healthy now, thanks to the amazing doctors and nurses at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

A huge thank you to Stephanie, Anthony and of course the adorable Parker for helping us organize and deliver some holiday cheer this Christmas!
