Tips for Test Driving New or Honda Certified Used Vehicles

civic_2013_insideComing in for a test drive, here are a few things to consider when you come visit us.  Feeling exciting when purchasing a new or used vehicle is normal but take a few minutes with each vehicle and think of the following:
1. Notice the seats.  Are they comfy seats that contour to your body for those long commutes.  On average, it is estimated we spend 10 to 15 hours a week driving so comfort is very important.
2. Are the buttons on the dashboard and/or steering wheel well placed and safe to use.  Too many buttons can be a big distraction.  Newer model Hondas come with controls built right into the steering wheel.
3. See if you can test the Bluetooth – wireless for phone calling.  Sometimes you even have to use the sales person’s connecting phone to a vehicle.  Especially if you plan to use your phone, hands free, when driving.
4. Hondas are designed for eliminating blind spots – adjust all mirrors as you would on a normal day.  It only takes a few seconds.
5. Think about all the things you do year round – which Honda fits the picture best? Work, camping, events, kids, group outings, are you moving soon, trips to the airport etc.  Spacious Honda Fit to the built in vacuum feature in our brand new Odyssey van – there are Hondas to suit any and every lifestyle and your budget too.

Ask questions about everything and know the owner’s manual is a good read too.  We look forward to seeing you soon.

5 Commonly Asked Questions About Winter Tires vs. All Season


Our parts and service department offers the lowest price on tires guaranteed.  This tiresisn’t the only thing that comes as a shock to our customers but also some of the answers they get to their most commonly asked questions.  Here are 5 things YOU need to know about winter tires vs. all season or regular tires.

1.   Is it ok to just get all-season tires for year round use if you are living in the lower mainland and there are only a few days of snow?

NO – all season tires for any amount of snow, ice or winter temperature is a bad idea.  Why?  The amount of space (distance) or time it takes for a vehicle with all season vs. winter tires is about a 35 per cent difference.  You can stop much faster and safer with winter tires.  The faster you can stop, the lower impact in a crash. 

Ever notice the amount of accident spike in the lower mainland even with very little snow – it’s not the type of vehicle, it’s the tires on them.

 2.   What’s the biggest difference between winter tires and all season tires?

The treads on winter tires is made to work in the cold.  It is much softer and grips better with the road – icy, snowy and cold roads.

All season and spring/summer tires do the opposite and harden in hot/warm weather.

tires33. When is a good time to get winter tires?  Anytime the temps fall to about 7 degrees or less.

Do you get the same size tires?   It is recommended you get a size or two smaller for the winter.  Our experts at Surrey Honda can help with that and get you the perfect fitting tires.  The sizes are written on the tires.

5.    Are winter tires good for the super rainy weather in the lower mainland?

YES because they are designed to move water quickly, safely and avoid things like hydroplaning, skidding or slipping in cases where you have to brake fast.

At Surrey Honda, we guarantee the lowest price on tires and have experts in our parts and service department to help you get the right ones and on properly with the exact amount of tire pressure, size and in a timely manner.
