2017 Honda Ridgeline

The Redesigned 2017 Honda Ridgeline is Coming!

By | Dealer News, Employee News, Honda Cars, Honda Innovation, Honda News | No Comments

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is almost here! Currently in production, the newly redesigned 2017 Honda Ridgeline is expected to be available in June. With 7 different trims, RT, RTS, Sport, RTL, RTL-T, RTL-E, and Black Edition, the Ridgeline has something for everyone. Designed with off-road durability and a sophisticated style, North America’s only unibody pickup truck is reinventing the midsize pickup truck segment.

Recently, Wilde East Towne Honda’s New Car Sales Manager, Peter Bothe and Sales and Leasing Consultant, Syed Zaidi got the chance to take the 2017 Ridgeline out for a spin at the San Antonio, Texas reveal. Loving every minute of the experience, Peter and Syed couldn’t help but notice how car-like and smooth of a ride the new 2017 Ridgeline felt. They were also very impressed with its 5,000 lb towing capacity, and the torque-vectoring AWD system that can direct power between the front and rear axles as well as side-to-side.

The new torque-vectoring AWD system sharpens handling on dry pavement and improves traction on snow, mud, and sand. This new system allows the 2017 Ridgeline to have a quicker response time and better fuel efficiency. Other standard features include Honda’s Intelligent Traction Management system, Hill Start Assist, and Eco Assist systems. The Honda Ridgeline’s dual-action tailgate and lockable in-bed trunk, are a returning favorite for many. As highlighted in the 2016 Super Bowl Commercial debut, in-bed audio speakers and subwoofer are available on the TRL-E and Black Edition trims.

We can’t wait for the first 2017 Honda Ridgeline to hit our lot! As always, inventory will be limited at the start of the release. Contact one of our friendly Sales and Leasing Consultants for a test drive when available. Check out our Honda inventory on our Website and Like us on Facebook!

Here is a taste of what Peter and Syed experienced first hand at the 2017 Honda Ridgeline San Antonio, Texas reveal.

Do you Hear a Squealing Noise When Steering?

By | Safety, Service News | No Comments

Whether we hear it from a nearby car, or even from your own car, that ear piercing squeal is an unforgettable sound. So what does it mean? It could mean a number of things. The most common reasons include low power steering fluid, worn out belt, or failing power steering pump. To find out the exact reason, a quick stop at Wilde East Towne Honda’s Service Center can put your mind at ease with proper diagnosis.

If power steering related problems are the reason your car is making noise, pay attention to how your car handles. You may notice the steering wheel is more difficult to turn than normal and fluid might be left under your vehicle when parked. Adding fluid might solve the problem, but it’s important to have a technician check it out and fix any problems that may be the cause of the noise.

Sometimes, greasing the suspension or steering components is all that is needed to ease the sharp squeak or squeal. Tie-rod ends, seals, ball joints and universal joints all need lubrication, and if they dry out, that could lead to noise, according to cars.com.

Squealing is not a normal noise and should be looked at as soon as possible. Making an appointment with us is easy. You can call our Service Center at 608-268-6131 or schedule online with our easy Service Scheduler.

Brat Fest 2016!

By | Community Support, Dealer News, Events | No Comments

Looking for something fun to do during Memorial weekend? Check out the “World’s Largest Brat Fest!”  The fest is located at Willow Island at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, WI and will be held Friday, May 27 to Monday, May 30, 2015. Invite some friends and enjoy the 4 day event with live bands, fireworks, and great food! Did we mention there is also a carnival? There is! Brat Fest has activities for all age groups! Check out the events page and see what’s going on in the Kid’s Zone, when the Brat Fest Bun Run is, and many other fun activities for all.

Local business’ sponsor their time and money to help support this great event. We are proud to be part of the 2016 sponsors. This year, more than 3,200 volunteers will donate a combined 16,495 hours of their time to grill, serve food, facilitate recycling and composting, and keep the grounds clean and safe for all attendees. Volunteers will earn $8 per hour, which will be donated back to their charity of choice at the end of the event, according to bratfest.com.

Starting in 2015, Brat Fest introduced a new way of showing community support with it’s Zero Waste Initiative. The Zero Waste Initiative asked volunteers to help attendees recycle or compost their throw away in an ongoing effort to minimize the amount of trash generated in our community. In 2015, Brat Fest reached 55% compostable and recyclables, according to bratfest.com. This year’s goal is to reach 60% compostable and recyclables. The compost will be transported to a biodigester in Oshkosh, WI and converted into energy for local utilities.

We hope everyone has a safe and fun Memorial Weekend and enjoy some brats while at Brat Fest! Also, don’t forget to check out our Website for great deals during our Memorial Day Sales Event and Like us on Facebook.
