Check Out the Specs of the 2015 Honda Fit

When drivers hear the word “specs,” they tend not to think of vehicles like the 2015 Honda Fit. After all, how much does the engine of a vehicle like the Fit matter to the average 2015 Honda Fit 2driver? Well, we would argue that the engine is one of the most impressive parts about the Fit, but that’s not all we cover when we talk about specs.

In fact, one of the things that pulls drivers toward the 2015 Fit is its incredible amount of passenger space and cargo storage, both of which fall under its specifications. So let’s take a look at the specs of the Fit and see just what it is that so many drivers are raving about.

Under the Hood

Small cars like the Fit in our new car inventory tend to be underestimated when it comes to power. Many people just look to the big horsepower number, not taking into account the weight of the huge vehicle around that engine. The economically-sized Fit makes incredible use of its 130-hp four-cylinder engine; this compact hatchback doesn’t need any more to be a force on the road, especially when built for agility and responsive handling.

And the best part is that the Honda Fit LX with CVT earns an EPA-estimated 41 mpg on the highway.*

Spacious Interior

Believe it or not, the 2015 Honda Fit shrunk on the outside while offering more interior space than before. We don’t know how Honda’s engineers did it, but drivers of the entry-level Fit LX will have 95.7 cubic feet of passenger space at their disposal, with Honda’s Magic Seat technology enabling the cabin to hold as much as 52.7 cubic feet of cargo. With the 60/40 split-folding rear seat, you can get the most out of both your cargo and passenger space without compromising on either!

See the 2015 Fit for Yourself

The fact is that numbers like the 2015 Honda Fit’s specs can only carry you so far. Eventually, you need to experience a vehicle like this for yourself. Contact Community Honda in Orland Park today and let us put you behind the wheel of the 2015 Fit; we’ll show you just how easy it is to fall in love with this incredible car!

The 2015 Honda Pilot Has Been Released!

If you’ve been waiting for the 2015 Honda Pilot to hit the showroom here at Community Honda in Orland Park, we have good news: the wait is finally over! We have the newly 2015-Honda-Pilot-LXreleased Pilot and all five of its trim levels ready and waiting for our Chicagoland drivers.

Here are some of our favorite parts of the new Pilot so that you can know just why we’re so excited.

What’s Special About the Special Edition?

The Special Edition trim is new for 2015, and we have to say that we love everything it’s done for the SUV. Take the mid-range features of the Pilot EX and add on a rear DVD entertainment system to keep the kids occupied, a one-touch power moonroof to let in the fresh air, a 115-volt power outlet in the front console to keep your gear charged, and unique SE badging and wheels and you have the brand new Special Edition.

It offers you some of the latest in auto technology while keeping everyone comfortable and entertained in the cabin. And it looks great doing it.

There’s a Pilot for Everyone

While the Special Edition trim slides right into the middle of the current Pilot lineup, we think each of the other trims offer a Pilot to fit every driver.

The entry-level LX comes with features that have helped to redefine the idea of the standard features package by including Bluetooth, a rearview camera, and touchscreen infotainment system. The top-of-the-line Touring, on the other hand, is decked out with high-class amenities like leather upholstery, a 10-speaker sound system, front and rear parking sensors, roof rails, and more.

And if you want something in between well-equipped entry-level and luxurious top-of-the-line, the EX and EX-L trims are on either side of the Special Edition and work to give you plenty of great features at astonishingly affordable prices.

Test Drive the Pilot Today

To see whether or not the 2015 Honda Pilot is the right SUV for you, you need some quality time behind the wheel. Stop by Community Honda in Orland Park today and let us put you in the driver’s seat of the new Pilot for a test drive. We can’t wait to show you around our favorite SUV!

Community Honda is Your Schaumburg Tire Service Center

You already know Community Honda as the Schaumburg-area Honda dealer you can trust, and we hope you know that this means we’ll be glad to take care of all of your Five new car wheelsroutine maintenance and repair needs as well. But did you know we are also your source for all of your tire needs?

All Your Tire Needs in One Place

As a service center, we of course are more than happy to rotate your tires to ensure that you get the most mileage out of them, but unlike many other dealerships, we have a full tire center on site. We have tires for all different kinds of vehicles in stock, and we’re here to install them on your car, truck, SUV, or minivan. And if you pick up a nail or a screw—or you just can’t figure out why your tire isn’t holding air—we’ll patch it right up for you.

While other dealerships or tire centers may try to take an arm and a leg to put fresh new tires on your car or repair the ones you have, our service center has frequently updated specials to offer you some of the best savings.

Why Rotate Your Tires

Most drivers know why they shouldn’t drive on flat tires and why they occasionally need to buy new tires, but not as many are as confident as to why they need to rotate their tires. After all, don’t the tires rotate on the axle?

Well, first, that’s not the kind of rotation we’re talking about. When we rotate your tires we switch their position on the vehicle, sometimes with the front tires crossing diagonally back, for instance. We do this to help even out the wear and tear on your tires; without rotating, the same tires will turn the same direction and wear in the same way. And that’s uneven wear, causing some spots on your tires to wear thinner than others.

By rotating your tires, you’ll be able to actually get the full mileage rating out of them.

If you have any questions about tires, don’t hesitate to contact us, and remember that when you need a tire rotation, you can schedule it online at your convenience.

Honda Makes Some of the Best Back to School Cars

At Community Honda in Orland Park, we’ve always known that the Civic is a great car for students, but we’re always glad to hear that auto experts like the reviewers at 2014 Honda Civic SedanKelley Blue Book agree with us. They just named the 2014 Honda Civic and the 2015 Honda Fit to their list of 10 Best Cars for Back to School. So, what is it about these vehicles that makes them great for teen drivers? Let’s take a look.

The 2014 Honda Civic

The Civic has had a reputation for affordability and efficiency for decades, and those are two of the most important factors in finding the best back to school car. Of course, your average student is going to want some of the best in features—like Bluetooth connectivity for their smartphone—and Honda gives them to you as standard on the 2014 Civic.

Get Your Tires Rotated at Community Honda of Orland Park

When you need a tire rotation in Orland Park, we hope that your first thought is us at Community Honda and our a state-of-the-art service center. Our certified Tirestechnicians know all the ins and outs of your vehicle, and whether it’s a simple tire rotation or heavy duty repair work, we’ve got you covered. But why is it you need to rotate your tires at all?

Why You Need to Rotate Your Tires

We’ve heard the question “but don’t my tires rotate when I drive?” more often than we’d like to admit. We think that most of you probably know that this isn’t the kind of tire rotation we’re talking about, though. A typical tire rotation can involve taking your front tires and moving them to the back of your vehicle while taking your rear tires and crossing them to the opposite from wheel. Or doing the opposite. Or just making an X with your tires. It all depends on where you go and what your vehicle needs. But we still haven’t hit the important question: why? The truth is that you don’t have to rotate your tires, but if you don’t, you’ll drastically reduce their lifespan and put yourself and your passengers in danger. Rotating tires ensures that each tire wears evenly; if your tires are uneven, they can cause a wide range of problems including:

  • Reduced traction
  • Uneven brake pad wear
  • Alignment troubles
  • Tire blowouts

Plus, uneven wear means you won’t come anywhere near that 60-80,000 miles your tires are rated at. So be sure to take your car somewhere you trust every 5,000 miles or so to have your tires rotated. We offer regular service specials to help make it even more affordable for our drivers to ensure that they keep up with their maintenance by visiting Community Honda.

Schedule Your Appointment Today

If you’re behind on your tire rotations, it’s not the end of the world, but you really shouldn’t put them off too long to avoid causing damage to your vehicle. Schedule your service appointment online or drop by Community Honda of Orland Park for your tire rotation. Our service center is open six days a week, and we can’t wait to serve you.

The Honda Civic Natural Gas Puts Safety First

As technology continues to advance and fuel options continue to evolve, Honda Civic drivers can feel confident that not only will Honda continue to keep up with the changes in the industry, but that it will also take all of the necessary precautions to keep drivers safe behind the wheel of these new vehicles. The 2014 Honda Civic Natural Gas is one such vehicle, and comes chock full of well-tested safety features to keep you safe.

Dedicated to Safety2014-honda-metallic-civic-natural-gas-side1

There are many different crash situations that drivers can be involved in, but one of the most dangerous is Small Overlap Frontal Crash Test, and Honda has taken steps to ensure safety in this kind of accident. A small overlap frontal crash is a collision against a rigid barrier that only a small portion of the front of the car makes contact with. This type of crash can be particularly dangerous because there is the potential for a lot of intrusion into the cabin of the vehicle if the car’s body structure isn’t strong enough to withstand the impact. Another factor of these crashes is that the off-center collision point can cause momentum that is difficult for seat belts to contain, creating potentially dangerous in-cabin situations, even if the passengers were wearing their seatbelts properly.

In the latest round of crash test safety ratings conducted by the IIHS, both the two- and four-door versions of the Honda Civic Natural Gas have been given the highest safety rating of “good.” The Civic earned this rating for three main reasons:

  • The cabin structure of the vehicle didn’t collapse in on the occupants of the car.
  • The steering column remained stable during the impact, which allowed the driver’s side airbag to properly protect the driver’s chest and head.
  • The side airbag deployed at the right time to prevent the driver from falling out the side of the vehicle, which can happen in these types of crashes.
