2018 Honda Pilot

Each year, Kelley Blue Book (KBB), one of the most trusted names in the automotive industry, selects the best lineup of family vehicles. It includes the 2018 Honda Pilot on its “Best Family Cars of 2018” list.

The new Pilot gives families looking for a three-row crossover, refinement, value, versatility, and loads of features. KBB also gave the Pilot the “Midsize SUV Best Buy” award, providing those with children one more reason to purchase this model.

One feature that really makes the Pilot stand out from the competition is its great use of interior space. It offers seating for up to eight passengers, while still including plenty of room behind the third row for groceries or a large stroller. When you need just cargo volume, conveniently fold away each of the back seats to take advantage of a cavernous interior.

The 2018 Pilot is not only practical, but it’s fun to drive. The engine is responsive, delivering pleasing acceleration thanks to the nine-speed automatic with paddle shifters, available on the Touring and Elite trims. These versions also deliver 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, which should satisfy those desiring a more thrilling ride. In addition, standard and available tech features such as the Blu-Ray rear entertainment system and Bluetooth® will help keep everyone engaged on each adventure.

To see for yourself why the 2018 Honda Pilot is such a good family car, take it out for a test drive at Bryan Honda.

New Year’s Resolutions for Car Owners

New Year’s ResolutionsHappy New Years from all of us here at Bryan Honda! To help commemorate the fresh year, check out these resolutions for car owners that will help you preserve your ride while staying safe on the road.

Maximize Efficiency

First, avoid leaving your car idling in the driveway to warm it up. Instead, simply drive your vehicle at a moderate speed, which will help conserve fuel.

Second, leave yourself more time to get to your destination so you won’t have to speed. Speeding is one of the largest wastes of fuel and, in most cases, it cuts just a few minutes off of your arrival time.

Pay Attention to the Tires

Your vehicle’s tires are probably neglected, especially if you don’t make it to routine maintenance appointments. This year, check the tire pressure once a week to ensure optimal inflation. While you’re at it, examine the tread depth, to make sure you have sufficient traction.

Perform Maintenance

Keeping up with routine maintenance is a great ambition for the new year. Simple, inexpensive services such as oil changes and tire rotations can make all the difference in extending the life of your vehicle. Best of all, the technicians here at Bryan Honda are quick to return your car to you, to help you stay on top of vehicle upkeep as well as all of the other items on your to-do list.
