The Honda Fit Moves South of the Border

Back in January we blogged about the third generation 2015 Honda Fit. With more horsepower, leg room, and a sportier appearance, at Hillside Honda we're excited to get this new, plucky model on our lot.

Since the Honda Fit is growing up, it only makes sense that it would stretch its tires and move out of its current home to a new residence. In still cold Jamaica, NY we're a little jealous that this subcompacts new home will have lots of tamales, sunshine, and margaritas.

Instead of being produced in Japan, production of the Honda Fit has been moved to a newly built factory in Celaya, Mexico. Mexico's role in the automotive industry has been steadily growing and moving production from Japan to Celaya will save transportation fees for the Honda Company.

The Honda Fit has been a best Honda seller in Japan, and with this next model that has people already talking, this plant will ensure consumer demands can be met. 200,000 tiny units will come out of Celaya annually and production began last Friday.

This new plant also have new innovative ways of building cars that save further time and money, like a new painting process that removes a primer coat, a round of baking, and creates a 40% reduction in energy. We dealers love anything that encourages efficiency while still maintaining quality.

At our dealership we have a great selection of new Honda models, including the 2014 Honda Fitand the ever popular 2014 Honda Accord. Welcome to the Honda Family, Celaya!

Honda Earth Dreams Technology™ Lauded by Green Car Journal

We'll admit that Earth Dreams sounds a little like it could be an ET sequel. With Hollywood recycling more than Switzerland these days, it likely wouldn't be much of a stretch for Steven Spielberg to finally sign on for a part two, either.

However, that is not the case. Honda Earth Dreams Technology? is very real and very impressive, we might add. It's certainly more exciting than another Tinsel Town remake as…

2015 Honda Fit Slated for a Spring Arrival

Honda comes out on top in Brand Advocacy Index

For all that we could bend your ear about how much we love these new and used cars of ours here at Hillside Honda, we understand why you might seek out a second opinion. After all, we'll admit it: we're a little bit biased when it comes to these matters. Then again, so is everyone else.

Honda Takes the Pain Out of Parking with New Valet System

Black Friday is just days away, and while we're already having nightmares about the long lines, pushy shoppers, and sold-out deals, we're almost dreading the mall's parking lot even more than the mall itself.  No matter how early you get there (or late, if you're one of the midnight shoppers), you'll have to spend a lot of time circling the parking lot, eyes peeled looking for an empty spot and praying that a car will leave at any moment.  It's not exactly in the holiday spirit, but a new technology from Honda has us seeing the light at the end of the chaotic tunnel.
