Honda Odyssey’s safety
For many families, safety is a top priority when shopping for a new family vehicle. If you are considering a new minivan, you might want to know that the 2019 Honda Odyssey’s safety beat out the competition in recent tests.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), conducts crash tests every year on new vehicles. The 2019 Odyssey was the only minivan that earned the top “GOOD” rating for both the driver and passenger sides in the Small Overlap Front Crash Test. The Odyssey also earned a “GOOD+” rating for its ease of use in testing the Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH). No other minivan earned better than an “ACCEPTABLE” rating.
With these and other test results, the Odyssey qualifies as a 2018 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK, when equipped with LED headlights and the available Honda Sensing® suite of safety features. The Honda Sensing features are standard on the EX trim and above, which account for 99% of Odyssey sales.
“Minivan buyers list safety as one of their greatest purchase considerations, and the Odyssey continues to be a top performer in independent safety ratings, further distancing itself from segment competitors,” said Ray Mikiciuk, assistant vice president of Honda Automobile Sales. “If you’re in the market for a minivan and you care about safety, there is simply no better choice than the Honda Odyssey.”
If you’re on the market for the safest family vehicle there is, stop by Bryan Honda and take a look at the excellent 2019 Honda Odyssey.

Happy 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.
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.
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.
