2017 Honda Accord Hybrid Available this Spring

When you crave a vehicle with stunning design, great engineering, and excellent fuel efficiency, be sure to consider the redesigned 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid. Coming out this spring, this hybrid features a more powerful and more efficient two-motor hybrid powertrain. This hybrid system delivers class-leading EPA-estimated fuel efficiency at 49 mpg in the city.

Not only will the new Accord Hybrid be more efficient, but it is more powerful too, with 212 horsepower combined.

“The new Honda Accord Hybrid is the ultimate Accord – the most refined, technologically sophisticated and, of course, most fuel efficient in the lineup,” said John Mendel, Executive Vice President of the American Honda Motor Co., Inc., in a statement. “With Accord already America’s most popular car three years running and the best-selling midsize car to younger buyers, we think this new hybrid model will add considerable momentum for the Honda brand.”

Along with its powertrain upgrades, the 2017 Accord Hybrid comes with the latest in-car technology, including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and the advanced Honda Sensing suite of safety features.

How to Prepare Your Car For Summer

Can you believe that summer is right around the corner? Now that May is here, you might be starting to plan your summer getaways and family vacations. But, before you hit the road for your much-deserved time off, make sure you prepare your car for summer.

Here are a few things to get inspected to make sure your car is road-trip ready.

  • Air conditioning. As the temperatures rise, you don’t want to be without your air conditioning. Have it inspected to make sure it is working in optimal condition.
  • Cooling system. The biggest cause of summer breakdowns is an overheated car. Your car’s cooling system should be inspected, flushed, and refilled about every two years.
  • Tires. Examine your tires to check for any signs of abnormal wear, inadequate tread depth, or signs of cracks. If your car pulls to one side, you likely need an alignment.
  • Battery. The extreme heat of summer can wreak havoc on a battery. Have it tested to make sure it has enough juice left to make it through the summer.
  • Windshield wipers. If your windshield wipers are leaving streaks or have cracks in the blades, it’s time for a new set.
