Tax season is upon us, which can feel like a no-win situation much of the time. There is a silver lining, though. Tax time also happens to be one of the best times to pick up a new vehicle. Here are just a few reasons you should buy a Honda during tax season.
You will likely have more money for down payments
Sometimes after you’re done with your taxes, you get some great news — the government actually owes you money this year. The extra cash that you will receive can go towards the down payment for your new vehicle. Typically, a larger down payment can help reduce the amount you will spend on monthly loan payments.
Tax season typically has lower interest rates
The interest rate you receive on your automotive loan can affect the amount that you pay every month. During tax season, you may find that interest rates are generally one to two percent lower than during any other time this year. It may not sound like much, but it can help you save a fair amount of money over time.
You may have more options to choose from
Between having a bit more money on hand and other incentives, tax season is a popular time to buy a vehicle. That’s why many dealerships increase their inventory in preparation, which means you may be able to pick and choose your new Honda or a high-quality pre-owned model from a wider selection than most of the year.
At Bryan Honda, our goal is to make your car-buying and ownership experience convenient and stress-free. If you want to capitalize on the benefits of tax season, don’t hesitate to give us a visit at our location in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
Honda is changing things up for the 2021 Ridgeline. The carmaker has decided to eliminate the two-wheel-drive Ridgelines from the lineup, instead offering only all-wheel-drive trucks.
This refreshed pickup will come available in four trim levels: Sport, RTL, RTL-E, and Black Edition. Along with only offering all-wheel drive, the Ridgeline has also seen some new design cues for the 2021 model year. On the outside, it has an entirely revamped front end. This includes new front fenders, a redesigned nose, grille, and more. The hood also features a unique “power bulge,” which gives the Ridgeline a more rugged, muscular look from the front.
Upgrades continue on the inside, with a revamped infotainment system offering an easy-to-use interface that will help you stay in control of your media on the go. An 8-inch touchscreen display is also standard, along with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration. Better yet, the Ridgeline will still offer the available industry-first in-bed audio system, which uses the bed’s walls to amplify music and make camping trips even more fun.
The 2021 Honda Ridgeline is available today at Bryan Honda, so don’t hesitate to contact us to learn more about this rugged, refreshed, adventure-ready pickup truck.
Performance lovers, rejoice! Honda is highlighting its performance prowess with a special edition of the Honda S2000 that will celebrate the model’s 20th anniversary. This custom, one-off prototype has a range of exclusive parts that make it look thoroughly modern, head-turningly stylish, and so much.
The Honda S2000 prototype is based on the AP1 generation model, which was available from 1999 to 2003. It comes outfitted with a modernized bumper, side sills, fenders, and a sleek spoiler. This S2000 also boasts an updated suspension, along with black mirror and windshield casings, a lower front air intake, and a set of 17-inch Advan RZ2 wheels.
Though we don’t know what the inside will look like, based on the picture it does look like the cabin will appear similar to previous versions. The red seats resemble the original S2000, though Honda does say that the model will have an updated, premium audio system.
The new S2000 model prototype was showcased at the Tokyo auto salon in January, alongside a custom first-generation Type R Civic, a one-seater microcar, and a JDM Stepwagon MPV. Because it’s a prototype, none of the details are set in stone, and much of what we can expect in the consumer version is up to speculation.
All we can do now is wait. We hope you’re as excited as we are about the possibilities presented by an all-new S2000, and we can’t wait to see you here at Bryan Honda when it finally hits the road.
Looking for things to do in Fayetteville? Stop by the Airborne and Special Operations Museum. Often ranking as one of the top attractions in the area, this historical museum has interesting information, stunning architecture, and impressive displays. Great for young kids as well as adults, this museum is a perfect way to spend a day.
According to the Airborne and Special Operations Museum website, the facility opened its doors in 2000, and it has free admission. There is a main exhibit area, temporary gallery, and a four-story theater, and you’ll also find a motion simulator ride, a fun experience for all. The building is an official part of the United States Army Museum System, and the exhibits largely date from modern warfare to WWII operations.
“Nearly 20 years from dream to reality, the museum has become a place to honor and preserve the legendary feats of the airborne and special operations troops who have contributed so much to defending our nation’s interests,” reads the official website. “From the early days of the Parachute Test Platoon to the ongoing War on Terrorism, the Airborne & Special Operations Museum recounts the actions of heroic soldiers.”
The most notable exhibits include the Battle of Mogadishu exhibit, an event that is the focus of the film Black Hawk Down (2001). You can also see early airborne divisions dating back to 1940, as well as Korean and Vietnam War exhibits. The Airborne and Special Operations Museum is just one of many things to do in the area.
