We Are Pet Friendly!

By | Dealer News, Employee News | No Comments

At Wilde East Towne Honda, we treat our customers like family, including pets. We have water bowls and treats available for use while at our dealership. We also have a new Pet Waste Station area located near the North side of our building. Whether you are here to purchase a vehicle, get a service done or simply to visit, your pet is welcome to be with you in our dealership. While we are pet friendly, we do take safety as a priority. It is very important to ask for permission to touch any animal before you reach your hand out to pet. For owners, sometimes it’s best to leave your furry friend at home when in areas with a large group of people. Please use your best judgement so everyone, including your pet, can be safe and happy.

When visiting a new place, please be mindful of others. We found a few etiquette tips to keep in mind from meridian.splashanddashfordogs.com when visiting stores and unknown areas.

  • Tip 1: Keep your dog on a short leash. This keeps your dog under control and out of harms way.
  • Tip 2: Don’t assume everyone wants to play with your dog. There may be a health reason someone doesn’t want to be around your dog or even dog lovers may be weary of other dogs they don’t know the temperament of.
  • Tip 3: Give your dog time to adjust to the new surrounding. Sometimes new places can be scary.
  • Tip 4: Try not to allow others to pet your dog unless they ask permission first.

We also found a great website, www.cesarsway.com, that can give you tips on how to acclimate your dog to new surroundings. Once trained, you can enjoy bringing your pet to multiple locations (please check locations first) as you run errands.

Do You Need a Wheel Alignment?

By | Dealer News, Safety, Service News | No Comments

Getting a wheel alignment on your vehicle is one of the most important preventative maintenance tasks that you can do for your car. Poor alignment can cause uneven tire wear which can reduce the lifespan of your tires, cause blowouts on the road, or it can cause damage to your suspension system. Signs that your car is out of alignment include drifting to one side, unevenly worn tires, or a vibrating steering wheel.

Bad roads are often the culprit for wheels becoming out of alignment. It’s a good practice to get your alignment checked once every 6 months to a year. Our Service Department at Wilde East Towne Honda can quickly check your alignment and give you honest recommendations. If you are unsure if your car needs an alignment, please give us a call at 608-268-6131 or stop into our Service Center.

The index ran from January 1st to May 31st, 2016.

Only 8 cars were named on cars.com 2016 American-Made Index. In order based on sales, Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Toyota Sienna, Honda Odyssey, Honda Pilot, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Buick Enclave made this year’s index. When based on production volume, the number one spot switches with the number two spot. Honda Accord comes out as number 1 in cars.com 2016 Production-Based Index (2016 AMI Rank). This is exciting news! We are proud that the Honda Accord, Odyssey, and Pilot have been highly ranked in the 2016 American-Made Index.
