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!

Contest: Show Us Your Scott Sailboat!

Show us your Scott Sailboat and your could win a GPS!It’s the holidays and we feel like having some fun!  As you know we love the proud tradition of our Scott Sailboat that dates back to the first Scott dealership in 1929.  Over the years we’ve collected some amazing photos of our logo from all over the country and the world…but we could never have too many photos, so we’re inviting everyone to play “Show us your Scott Sailboat”!

It’s simple…all you have to do is take a photo of Scott Sailboat, post it on our Facebook page, or tag us on Twitter or Instagram (we are @ScondaBlog).  If you are not social media inclined you can email your photos to ScottSailboat@ScottHonda.com or mail them to the dealership. This will enter you in the drawing for our great Tom Tom GPS unit that has a 5″ screen, lifetime maps and over 7 million points of interest.

The great thing is you can enter as many times as you want…the more unique photos you take and tag, the more chances you have to win!  And at the very least everyone will win some Sconda Swag just for playing!

Here are some hints; while we would love if the Scott Sailboat were on the back of your car, it does not have to be, it could be any random car you see with our logo on it (but be smart about it, we aren’t paying for any legal fees, wink).  If you have some of our swag with a Scott Sailboat on it, snap away.  If you are an artist and want to paint, draw or color a Scott Sailboat, have at it, but it must resemble our logo and of course say “SCOTT” underneath.  Also these must be new photos, nothing recycled, unless of course it’s one of our recycling cans which has the logo on it.

So get out your smart phones, SLR’s, point and shoots, or Polaroids and let’s have some fun! This contest ends when the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve 12.31.2013 so get busy!

Santa Visits Scondaland Despite the Snowy Weather

Santa visits ScondalandThe Scott Kids Holiday Party, a special event for the children of our employees was a huge hit as usual, but this year Mother Nature threw us a curve ball, or a snowball is more like it! With the heaviest of snow falling at the exact time families were headed to Scott Honda for this great annual tradition the show had to go on.

We had an impromptu Santa Claus who gave out presents to all of the good boys and girls and amazingly our face painter, Vivette from Stacy’s Face Painting & Jason from Airhead Entertainment, our Balloon Artist, both made it through the snow to the delight of the children!

A huge thank you also goes out to Jen and Sara and everyone else who helped to make the event so special!

Scott Honda Donates Thanksgiving Dinners to Those in Need

Scott Honda doantes Thanksgiving dinners to area familiesFor the 10th year in a row Scott Honda and our employees teamed up to help those who are less fortunate.  Together with the amazing folks at Big Brother Big Sisters Southeastern Pennsylvania (BBBS SEPA) we made sure that more families in Chester Country were able to sit around the dinner table with those they love and eat a proper Thanksgiving meal complete with all the fixin’s!

For the past 3 weeks Scott Honda employees have been bringing in canned corn, stuffing, cranberry sauce and everything else that makes Thanksgiving so wonderful, to help 10 Chester County families who might not have had any Thanksgiving meal to speak of.

“Thank you, thank you, thank you Scott Honda for once again giving us the opportunity to help our families like this,” Lauren Brown, Manager, Program for BBBS SEPA.  “There are a lot of children in our program who would not be enjoying the thanksgiving dinner that we often take for granted if it weren’t for your generosity.”

A huge thank you as well to Administrative Assistant Sara Pyfer who helped to organize the entire donation and many, many thanks to Lauren and her team who distributed the meals to the families who needed them the most!
