Wilde East Towne Honda is Pleased to Announce Brady Johnson as our Newest Honda Certified Master Technician!

By | Dealer News, Employee News, Honda News, Service News | No Comments

Brady is one of those lucky individuals whose career mimics his favorite childhood past time: working on cars. When it came time to plan for his future, it was only logical that he pursued his passion and attended Madison College to earn a degree in the Automotive Program.

Shortly after graduation, Brady realized it was time to get a real job and he applied to Wilde East Towne Honda. It has been almost four years since Brady joined our Service Department as a Service Lube Technician doing basic car maintenance such as oil changes and tire rotations. In that time, Brady has never stopped learning and challenging himself.

Almost immediately after starting, Brady began pursuing his goal of becoming a Honda Certified Master Technician. He spent many hours in our Education Lab studying as well as traveling to the Honda Training School near Chicago. It’s taken lots of hard work and dedication but Brady has earned his Certification and we couldn’t be prouder of him.

Brady joins Allen Deneui, Derek Jensen, Tim Kesterson and Carl Campbell as our fifth Honda Certified Master Technician.

Congratulations Brady!!!!

Previous Honda Super Bowl Appearances

This year will mark the third time Honda has promoted the CR-V during the Super Bowl with previous appearances featuring the 2007 and 2012 year models. The 2012 Honda CR-V made its most iconic appearance during the Super Bowl paying homage to a well-known coming-of-age character in “Matthew’s Day Off.” For Super Bowl 50, Honda debuted the redesigned 2017 Ridgeline pickup to Queen’s iconic “Somebody to Love,” and became a major success. Honda expects the introduction of the 2017 CR-V to be just at successful for the 2017 Super Bowl.

“The Super Bowl is the appropriate stage to introduce America to the bold and sophisticated new Honda CR-V,” said Susie Rossick, Assistant Vice President, Honda Auto Marketing. “With the largest audience and reach of any single television event, the Super Bowl is a platform befitting the CR-V’s status as the best-selling SUV in America, and the perfect place to celebrate CR-V’s 20th anniversary.”

Honda isn’t giving away any spoilers for the 2017 CR-V debut. We will just have to wait and see what they came up with.

Dangers of Drowsy Driving

By | Dealer News, Honda Cars, Safety | No Comments

Dangers of Drowsy Driving

Driving while drowsy can be just as dangerous as driving while intoxicated. Like alcohol, lack of sleep while driving slows reaction time, decreases awareness, impairs judgment, and increases your risk of crashing. Drowsiness can also be caused by medication or untreated sleep disorders.

It is recommended that healthy adults get between 7 – 9 hours of sleep daily. According to a study by AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, a significant number of drivers are on the road with less than the recommended hours of sleep. On a crash risk scale of 0-15, 15 being the highest, drivers who slept 4 hours or less were at a crash risk of 11.5 while drivers who slept 6 – 7 hours were at a crash risk of 1.3. To view the results of the crash risk scale, follow this link: Sleep Impact Crash Risk

Did you know?

Drivers are more likely to get behind a wheel if they are drowsy than if they had a drink. It’s a common consensus that drunk driving is unacceptable but we continue to tolerate drowsy driving. In general, we are not good at determining our own sleepiness, making us more at risk of crashing.

Honda Sensing™ technology can help keep us safe

Nothing can replace sleep, but Honda Sensing technology™ is there to assist us. Currently,  Honda Sensing technology™ is available on the Accord, Civic, CR-V, and Pilot. The suite is a combination of six advanced safety technology features. These features include Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), and Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™). When all six safety features are properly in use, Honda Sensing™ could safely keep you from veering out of your lane and even slow you down before an accident occurs.

How Honda Sensing™ technology works

LDW can detect unindicated lane departures from detected lanes. Alerts will flash and sound to help bring your attention to correcting the land drift1. LKAS can reduce driver fatigue by helping to keep you in the middle of your lane. If you begin to leave the center of a detected lane without signaling, the steering adjusts to keep you centered2. RDM, if your vehicle is drifting too close to the side of the detected roadway while driving 45-90 mph without a turn signal activated, you are alerted with rapid vibrations on the steering wheel. If you continue to leave the roadway, it can also apply steering torque and braking to help keep your vehicle in the detected lane3.  ACC helps you maintain a set following interval, so you don’t have to manually change your speed4. Integrated with the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), FCW uses a small camera mounted at the top of the front windshield to detect the presence of vehicles in front of you. If the FCW system determines that you are at risk of a collision with a detected vehicle, it activates audio and visual alerts to warn you5. If you fail to act, the CMBS will automatically apply brake pressure6. Utilizing a millimeter wave radar sensor, CMBS can help bring your Honda to a stop when the system determines that a collision with a vehicle dented in front of you is unavoidable. A warning sounds and, if necessary, brake pressure is automatically applied6.
