Are you trying to save up money for a new Honda but having trouble getting started? Here are a few money-saving hacks that will help you save toward a down payment:
Eat in: Eating out at restaurants or getting takeout gets expensive. Instead, set a firm grocery budget for every week, buy everything you need, and just eat meals at home. It’s cheaper and
Adjust your utilities usage: By running your air conditioning just a little warmer in the summer and your heater a little cooler in the summer, you can save some serious money on utilities.
Find unique ways to make money from home: Get into freelance writing, consider signing up for Airbnb, or just start taking surveys while watching TV. The Penny Hoarder offers lots of unique ideas for making money on the side.
Build out a budget: If you haven’t sat down with budgeting software — or even a spreadsheet — to build out a budget, that’s your first mistake. Calculate your monthly take-home pay and your monthly expenses (i.e., required expenses like rent, utilities, food, etc.). Whatever is left over is your “fun money” and “investment money.” How much you set aside for fun things like Netflix or nights out with friends directly affects how much you can invest in a high-yield savings account. If you are serious about saving, always put more toward “investment money.”
You can also save money on a car by buying used, leasing, or simply buying an inexpensive car that doesn’t compromise on features. Learn more at Bryan Honda.
The new 2019 Honda Passport is on a mission to shake up the Honda SUV lineup — and it’s doing just that quite well. This new SUV, which sits between the compact CR-V and the three-row Pilot in size, combines a spacious interior with ample technology to make it a solid option in its segment. Here, we give you a look at what you can expect when you get the 2019 Passport.
For the 2019 model year, the Passport comes available in four trims: Sport, EX-L, Touring, and Elite. Each trim has their own exclusive wheel designs, black exterior accents, and aggressive styling that helps the Passport stand out from the other members of the Honda SUV lineup.
On the inside of the Passport, you will find enough seating for five people to stretch out without sacrificing cargo space. Triple-zone climate control will keep all passengers comfortable on the go, while the 50.5 cubic feet of storage space behind the rear seats give you room for all their gear. If you don’t have many passengers, you can fold down the rear seats to access this SUV’s maximum cargo capacity of 100.7 cubic feet — ample space for your camping equipment.
Technology-wise, you can opt for the available eight-inch touchscreen display, which gives you access to Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. Bluetooth® comes standard, while other available tech includes wireless charging, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and a 10-speaker premium sound system. The Passport also comes standard with the Honda Sensing® suite of safety technologies, helping you feel more confident behind the wheel.
Built in Alabama, the new 2019 Honda Passport is a truly family-friendly, fun-to-drive SUV. Give it a look at Bryan Honda!
The Fourth of July is just around the corner and we here at Bryan Honda, along with those in our community, are lucky to be located just 30 minutes away from one of the biggest celebrations in our area — the Fort Bragg Fourth of July celebration.

You know that now is the time to trade in that old ride of yours for something a bit fresher. What you haven’t determined yet is whether you want something brand-new or just new-to-you. To figure out whether you should buy a new or used car, you have to ask yourself a few key questions.
How much can I spend? Making a budget is the first thing you should do when car shopping. Knowing how much you can afford every month will help you better decide if a new or used car is the best bet for your budget.
Do I need the latest technologies? If you buy a new Honda from Bryan Honda, you’re getting some of the latest technologies up for grabs, from infotainment and connectivity to safety with Honda Sensing®. While you may be able to find a great used or certified pre-owned vehicle with modern bells and whistles, you’ll need to decide what you can and can’t live without first.
Can I afford repairs sooner rather than later? If you buy a new Honda, you’re going to get plenty of coverage, including a 3-year/36,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty among others. A CPO will carry limited warranty coverage as well, but if you buy a used vehicle, you’ll be on the hook for any repair costs right out of the gate.
There are a lot of different ins and outs to consider when weighing your options between a new and used car. The experts at Bryan Honda will help you make the best decision for your circumstances and get you out of the showroom with a smile on your face.
What better way can you think of to express your love and gratitude for the father or father figure in your life than a heaping plate of fresh crab? At the 2019 Fayetteville Father’s Day Crab Feast, you can get that very thing and share an experience that your dad will not soon forget.
The 2nd Annual Fayetteville Father’s Day Crab Feast emanates from the John D. Fuller, Sr. Recreational/Athletic Complex on June 15. The cost of admission is $32 for adults and $10 for children, and the return on investment is quite significant — you’ll be able to get all the fresh blue crab you can eat as well as a side of fish and chips. Pair that with the lively, festive atmosphere and plenty of chances to reminisce about days gone by, and you’ve got a recipe for a memorable Father’s Day.
You’ll have your choice of two times if you want to attend the Fayetteville Father’s Day Crab Feast: noon or 4 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in advance at EventBrite. Once you’ve bought the tickets, all you need to bring is your dad and your appetites — and maybe a bib.
If you really want to drive home how much your dad means to you this Father’s Day, why not get him a new Honda? Bring him into Bryan Honda and we’ll help him drive away in the car, truck, or SUV of his dreams.
If you’re looking for the safest pickup truck on the roads, then you should consider the 2019 Honda Ridgeline. The Ridgeline was recently awarded the title of Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) when it is equipped with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights. This makes it the only pickup truck to earn this rating from the IIHS.
The Ridgeline also received a “Superior rating from the IIHS
for its available Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), which applies
the pickup truck’s brakes when a potential collision is detected on the road
ahead. This technology is part of the larger Honda Sensing® suite of
driver-assistance features, which comes standard on the Ridgeline RTL-E and
Black Edition models.
Along with CMBS™, the Honda Sensing® package also includes a
Road Departure Mitigation System, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure
Warning, and Adaptive Cruise Control.
Currently, the Ridgeline is one of seven Honda models to be
recognized by the IIHS for its safety. Other 2019 Honda models to receive the
Top Safety Pick accolade include the Accord, CR-V, HR-V, Pilot, and Odyssey.
The 2019 Honda Insight was awarded the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ title. The
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has also awarded all
2019 Honda models that have been tested so far its top safety rating of
five-star overall crashworthiness.
As the only pickup truck to earn the IIHS Top Safety Pick designation, it can safely be called the safest pickup truck you can buy today. Learn more about its safety features at Bryan Honda.
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!
