In the United States, road injuries are the leading cause of preventable deaths and injuries to children. Because of this, it’s important that you know whether or not you’re using your child’s car seat correctly. To help give you peace of mind, we’ve put together a list of some car seat safety tips you should keep in mind when you’re on the go.
Use the right kind of
seat. It’s important you know the right type of car seat your child should
be in at any given time. Your child should be rear-facing for as long as
possible up until they are two or more years. Once your child has outgrown its
rear-facing seat, you can move them into a forward-facing one.
Get your car seat installation checked. Depending on where you live, there are places you can bring your vehicle so that your car seat can be looked over, ensuring it’s installed correctly. You can find a list of local places that will do this here.
Keep track of your
child’s size. As your child grows, his or her car seat requirements may
change. Make sure you’re aware of your car seat’s weight, height, and age
limits and, if your child outgrows these, you have a new seat at the ready.
One of the ways to improve car seat safety is to buy a car that has a robust and easy-to-use LATCH system. Fortunately, many of the cars at Bryan Honda have just that. Visit us today to learn more about how buying Honda can improve your children’s safety.
Part of car ownership is taking care of your vehicle. There are a few things that should be done at the beginning of each season. The following are some spring car maintenance tips that will help you keep your car running as smoothly as possible as the weather warms up.
Spring clean, inside
and out. Give your car a good scrub down both in and out. Throw away any
trash you’ve gathered over the past cold months, vacuum, and wipe down the
inside. On the outside, make sure you wash and wax every inch — including the
Check your tires.
Warmer weather can cause the air in your tires to expand. This, along with an
abundance of potholes popping up as the weather gets warmer, can really do a
number on your tires. Check your tires’ pressure and tread. If their pressure
is outside of the manufacturer’s range – which can be found in your owner’s
manual — then fill or deflate your tires accordingly. Also, if the tread on
your tires are balding, make sure you get your tires replaced.
windshield wipers. After a harsh winter for North Carolina, your windshield
wipers have undergone a lot of pressure. Now that the weather’s warmer — and
getting rainier by the day — you should switch out your wipers for new ones. This
will make sure your visibility as you drive is the best it can be.
Remember routine maintenance.
Every few thousand miles, you should be getting your oil changed. If you put
this off during the cold weather of winter, now is the time to get your car’s
oil changed. It will keep your car running smoothly throughout the warmer
For the greatest peace of mind, you should leave spring maintenance to us. Schedule a service appointment at Bryan Honda and we’ll ensure your car gets the care it deserves.
Spring is finally here, which means it’s time to start thinking about where you can go to enjoy this season’s beautiful weather. At Bryan Honda, we would like to recommend heading over to Lake Rim Park, a lovely local park with a range of activities to enjoy.
Gather some friends and meet up at Lake Rim Park to enjoy some fun in the
beautiful spring weather. The park has a range of sport fields and courts,
ranging from tennis and sand volleyball courts to soccer and baseball fields. Whether
you’re playing a game of pickup or want to practice your penalty shot, this
park is a great place to do so.
With its location nestled next to Bone Creek, the park has plenty of natural
beauty to enjoy. Set out on one of its numerous walking trails, including the
one-mile border trail that goes through the wetlands. There is even a fresh
water marsh area that is home to a range of local flora and fauna, so keep an
eye out as you walk.
Have fun with your
kids. With multiple playgrounds available for kids of all ages, Lake Rim
Park is a good place to go if your kids need to run off some energy. The park
also has picnic areas and horseshoe pits so you can enjoy a cookout to make a
whole day of your visit there.
Before you head to Lake Rim Park for a nice picnic with family and friends, you’ll need a ride. Check out our roomy SUV, crossovers and the Sienna minivan at Bryan Honda.
Spring is just on the horizon, which means it’s time to start thinking about America’s favorite pastime: baseball. Luckily for us here in Fayetteville, we have our own local minor league team to root for. The Fayetteville Woodpeckers are back in town after a 17-year absence, and they have a brand-new stadium, which will be called the SEGRA stadium.
Named after one of the largest independent bandwidth
companies in the United States, the $40 million ballpark will act as a premium
sports venue for the area. It will be outfitted with Wi-Fi and will have a bar
in the outfield that will offer live music, lounge seating, corn hole, and
more. You can even attend a game in one of the six luxury suites or four field
boxes to give you a premium baseball experience.
Those with little ones will be happy to know that there will
also be multiple kids’ zones to keep little ones entertained, and foodies will
rejoice in knowing that all concession stands will have unique, original food
options with branding that takes influence from Fayetteville and nearby Fort
The stadium is set to open up in April, so make sure your Honda is ready to be packed up so you can haul whatever you need to the next ball game. And if you don’t have one, we’ll get you sorted at Bryan Honda!
