Remember last year when Linkin Park came to Cincinnati and rocked the stage for the Honda Civic Tour? Well it’s that time of the year again. But this year, there’s a different band that will be taking the stage in Cincinatti – Maroon 5. That’s right – Maroon 5 is headlining this year’s Honda Civic Tour, and we couldn’t be more excited!
Now, this tour will make its way to a lot more places than just Cincinnati, but Cinci is by far the closest stop to Louisville (only about an hour and a half away). So be sure to check out this website and get your tickets soon. The tour starts August first in Missouri, then Indiana, and then heads over to the Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati on August 4th. So if you’re a fan of great music and great cars, get your tickets!
Okay, okay. We know that no one likes a bragger, but if we may, we’d like to toot our own horns for a couple minutes. Why, you ask? Because the all-new 2013 Honda Accord has been raking in the awards lately! I mean seriously, it seems like the new Accord just came out yesterday, and its already got quite the list of accomplishments. Since being revealed a few months ago, the 2013 Honda Accord has been recognized in the following ways:

5-star overall vehicle score from the Nation Highway Traffic Safety Administration
Not too shabby if you ask us! If you would like to take a 2013 Honda Accord for a test drive, stop by Bob Montgomery Honda in Louisville, KY today.
A couple weeks ago we did a blog about how the 2014 Honda Odyssey was going to be revealed soon, and well, it’s been revealed! That’s right – the 2014 Odyssey was uncovered at the New York Auto Show, and let us be the first to tell you if you haven’t seen it already – It is awesome!
Just when you thought Honda couldn’t make it any better, they come out of nowhere with some incredible new styling and groundbreaking interior features such as the world’s first in-car vacuum, HondaVAC. Can you believe it? Why didn’t we think of that years ago?
Check out the full video featuring all the new changes in the video below.
Celebrate National Car Care Month with Bob Montgomery Honda.
Now that the winter snow has finally melted away, we can make way for spring flowers, rain clouds, and the dreaded spring cleaning. autoMedia.com suggests several tips for extending the spring cleaning tradition to your car, in addition to your house and yard! After all, your car does take quite a beating during the winter months from the snow, ice, and salt.
The first thing you should do wash your car. It’s time to start clean and that means getting rid of the salt residue and water streaks from melted snow and rain. During this step, be sure to target the underbody of your car, so the salt won’t corrode parts like the front and rear bumpers. After that is done, check for rust spots on the underbody. If you notice any, make sure to take the necessary steps to stop it from spreading. Contact our service department if you’re unsure of what to do.
The next step is to check all fluids and refill them to their specific levels. You can stop into our dealership if you need to have something flushed like the transmission fluid, or if you need an oil change. Also, check the wiper blades for wear and tear from the winter weather; you’ll want to have fresh ones for the spring rains. You should also have your tires and brakes inspected -they experience a lot of the winter weather first-hand.
If you want a helping hand this spring, stop by our dealership, Bob Montgomery Honda. We would be happy to help get your car ready for spring weather!
Each year, U.S. News and World Report releases a list of the Best Cars for Families, based on the quality, space, and family-friendly features of each vehicle observed. In total, there were nineteen categories for the 2013 awards, and Honda took home two of them. As we at Bob Montgomery anticipated, the Honda Odyssey and the Honda CR-V both soared to the top of their respective segments, way ahead of their “closest” competition.
The 2013 Honda Odyssey has long been praised as the “Best Minivan” in the automotive industry and has the awards to prove it, recognized for its interior space, fuel economy, top-of-the-line safety features, reduced carbon footprint, and residual value, to name a few. Add to this list the Best Minivan for Families, and you’ve got the world’s greatest toddler-toting vehicle ever made.
Just as successful as the Odyssey, the 2013 Honda CR-V has been lauded by critics and fans alike for its segment-leading cargo room and interior seating space. U.S. News also liked its innovative conversation mirror that allows drivers to focus on the road and can keep an eye on the kids all at once.
Interested in either of these award-winning Honda family gems? Stop by Bob Montgomery Honda to take either—or both—out for a spin today!
The wait is almost over! The New York Auto Show is this week and the newly redesigned Honda Odyssey is set to be unveiled in just a couple short days. Unfortunately, Honda has not disclosed hardly any information about the new Odyssey, but they did say on their website that it will introduce “refreshed styling” and “innovative technology”. We can’t wait to see what it looks like!
We’re also excited to see the 2013 Honda Fit EV and the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in Hyrbid, both of which are set to make their debuts alongside the new Odyssey. Keep checking our blog, Facebook page, and website for more info!
Not too long ago, Consumer Reports came out with a list of the “Best Used Cars.” This list was determined by seeing which cars held their value best and still performed well years down the road, and as you may have guessed from the title, Honda made not one, not two, but three appearances on this list!
First up is the 2011 Honda Fit. Value is the key word with this small car. With more storage space than most small cars, and a 4-cyclinder engine that delivers 30 miles per gallon, it’s easy to see why the Fit is a solid choice for anyone looking for a used small car.
Next is the Accord. According to New York Daily News, “Reliability is one of the Honda Accord’s selling points, and rightfully so. Consumer Reports places it as a top pick among $10,000 to $15,000 used sedans, citing its strong-but-efficient V6 engine and roomy interior as highlights.”
The third and final Honda to make the list of “Best Used Cars” is the 2007-2008 Honda Pilot. This is a great choice for anyone looking for a larger SUV. Why? Because it has room for up to 8 people, and still gets decent fuel economy.
The bottom line is, Honda’s are reliable. If you’re looking to purchase a used car, come check out our large selection of used vehicles here at Bob Montgomery Honda.
We’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about when our next big sale will be, and well – the time has finally come! The Honda Really BIG Spring Event is going on now at Bob Montgomery Honda, and we are so excited about the great offers going on now.

Come on down to Bob Montgomery Honda today to see how much you can save on a new Honda. But don’t wait! The Really Big Spring Event ends April 30, 2013.
Last year, in an effort to encourage car makers to create even safer automobiles, the IIHS raised the bar even higher and created the “Top Safety Pick+” category, requiring cars to get 4 “good” ratings on tests, and no less than acceptable on the 5th test. Needless to say, this category is reserved for only the safest vehicles, and it is no easy feat to get the “Top Safety Pick+” rating.
That’s why we were so excited to learn that the new 2013 Honda Civic Sedan and Coupe were the first small cars to achieve this ranking! According to a recent press release by Honda, “Honda leads all other brands in achieving TOP SAFETY PICK+ ratings with four models – Civic Sedan and Coupe, and Accord.” So if you are looking to buy a good, safe, and reliable vehicle for your family, make sure you stop by Bob Montgomery Honda in Louisville, KY. We would love to help you find the car or SUV of your dreams!
The 2013 Honda Civic is available at Bob Montgomery Honda in Louisville, KY.
Here’s something for all you science lovers out there. In a press release published just yesterday, Honda announced that that have “established the world’s first process to reuse rare earth metals extracted from nickel-metal hydride batteries for new nickel-metal hydride batteries to recycle precious resources.” Now to be perfectly honest, we don’t really know what this means, but anytime we can reuse rare earth metals, that’s a good thing for the earth.
If you’re interested in learning more about how Honda is recycling rare earth metals, you can check out Honda’s press release for yourself here.
And any of you that are interested in driving a top-of-the-line Honda vehicle that was developed by the same brilliant minds that figured out the world’s first process to reuse rare earth metals should stop by Bob Montgomery Honda. We have tons of brand new Honda hybrids in stock, and we would love to help you find the right one for you and your family.
