If you’re looking for one of the best Honda dealers in Orland Park, you need to come by Community Honda to see our expansive inventory of new and used Honda vehicles. We’re particularly excited to offer our customers the impressive new 2013 Pilot, which gives drivers a winning combination of power, versatility, and fuel economy.


Thanks to a strong V6 engine the Pilot has all the power you’ll need, whether you’re hauling cargo or up to 8 people thanks to the third row of seats. Come see this capable new SUV at Community Honda today; we know you’ll be impressed.


Power, Efficiency, and Technology

The new 2013 Pilot will be available in four different trims, and all will be powered by the same engine. This 3.4L V6 cranks out a hearty 250 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque. All trims come with a five-speed automatic transmission standard and give the option for two-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.


Honda has taken some innovative measures to maximize the fuel economy of the new Pilot. The engine features variable cylinder management technology, which allows it to shut off cylinders in order to improve efficiency. The Pilot also receives an aerodynamically-inspired face lift as well as low-rolling-resistance tires in an effort to get the best efficiency. The EPA estimates that 2WD models of the 2013 Pilot will give drivers up to 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.*


In order to improve the handling of the Pilot, Honda has outfitted the 2013 model with a four-wheel independent suspension system to help make a smooth ride. A variable torque management system is standard on all-wheel drive models to help you get the power to the wheels that need it when you lose traction.


Hill start assist is standard across the trims, which is a handy system which retains brake-line pressure after you take your foot off the brake when parked on steep incline. This makes it easy for you to start the car and drive away by preventing you from rolling back when you release the brake.

Community Honda Reveals the Top Five Benefits of Owning a Natural Gas Vehicle

2012 Honda Civic Natural Gas

Come by Community Honda and Test Drive the Honda Civic Natural Gas Today!

With continuously rising prices of gasoline fuels and the growing concern over our environment, drivers searching for new Hondas near Orland Park are starting to choose cars that run on alternative fuels. When one mentions the word alternative fuel, most of us visit fuel concepts such as biodiesel, ethanol, or even hydrogen. At Community Honda, we are proud to also embrace one of the most promising alternative fuels: natural gas.


For this reason we are excited not only to offer a wide selection of new Hondas and used vehicles, but to also offer drivers in Orland Park the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of owning a natural gas vehicle such as the Honda Civic Natural Gas.


Benefits of Natural Gas

There are many reasons that we think natural gas is a great auto fuel source, such as:


  1. 1.    A Reliable Source of Energy – Rather than relying on imported petroleum, natural gas drivers can have confidence in the abundant supply of natural gas reserves here in the United States, and natural gas can be domestically produced right here in the United States as well.
  2. 2.    Cleanest Burning Fossil Fuel – Of all the fossil fuels, natural gas is the cleanest burning, thus reducing your carbon footprint and saving you at the pump while doing so.
  3. 3.    Less Frequent Routine Maintenance – Unlike carbon that leaves deposits in your oil requiring it to be changed often, natural gas burns clean, leaving nothing behind.
  4. 4.    Refueling is Easily Obtained – Nationwide there are over 800 natural gas stations available. For your convenience, Honda also offers natural gas drivers “Phill,” the home refueling appliance.
  5. Safer Than Gasoline Fuels – Compressed natural gas is safer than gasoline fuels as it simply dissipates harmlessly into the air in the event of an accident or leak, unlike gasoline, and it is much less likely to or cause a fire than gasoline

Key Safety Features



  • Honda’s eco-friendly car has so many airbags, it’s hard to not feel safe. With Honda’s dual stage, multiple-threshold front airbags, air bags will not just be deployed in a collision, but their deployment is based on impact and seatbelt control. This feature controls the inflation level to give you maximized safety protection.
  • Protect your upper body with the front side airbags with passenger-side occupant detection system feature. Sensors can detect if a small child or adult is in the passenger seat to automatically deactivate the side airbag when it could cause injury.
  • Reduce injury to your neck and head with side curtain airbags. These side airbags along the headliner give protection to everyone in the vehicle.

Advanced Seatbelts

  • This model takes seatbelts to a new level. Added onto the safety standard is the automatic tensioning system included in the front seats to control the force exerted by the seatbelt in the event of a collision.

Keep Control

  • Vehicle stability assist with traction control works with the driver to bring total control when making a sharp turn instead of over steering or under steering. The traction control averts wheel spinning when driving.

Brake Safe

  • Don’t lose control when braking suddenly; Honda’s anti-lock brakes with electronic brake distribution help the vehicle properly brake without skidding.

Avoid Flat Tires 

  • Monitoring your tire pressure is easy now thanks to the tire pressure monitoring system. If low, the system will alert the driver to which tire needs air. Manual gauge checking is still recommended.
