Stay Safe & Sound

This new Accord for sale makes for excellent family transportation or individual commuting with a raft of standard driver-assist and safety technologies known as Honda Sensing™.

They start with Adaptive Cruise Control that maintains a safe distance automatically from the car in front, even slowing and speeding up to keep up with traffic changes until it reaches the speed you set. If you’re in danger of hitting the car in front of you, the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ can stop your sedan in a blink, helping you to avoid an accident.

To prevent you from drifting away from the center of your lane, the Lane Keeping Assist Systems keep you on the correct path and out of someone else’s. A small camera that can read road markers alerts you if you’re about to stray, too; Honda calls this the Road Departure Mitigation System. It can then take action to ensure that you stay safe.

You’ll always know what’s behind you with the Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, which reveals normal, wide, and top-down views. Activate the right turn signal, and Honda LaneWatch™ displays what’s in the next lane on the large touchscreen. Continue Reading →

5 Tips on Spring Cleaning Your Car

At South Motors Honda, we know the ins and outs of cars. As spring breaks on the scene here in Miami, we’d like to show you some car cleaning tips so that you can strut your stuff down Miami Beach.

1. Auto Detailing from the Inside Out

Cleaning your car starts with the interior.

  • First, grab a plastic bag and pick up loose change, old receipts, and moldy french fries. Send those suckers to the trash.
  • Remove front and rear car mats. Run a vacuum over them as well as the floors and seats. Use attachments to get into hard-to-reach areas underneath the seats as well as in cup holders and door compartments. Vacuum the trunk, too.
  • With a steam cleaner, pick up caked-on gunk and stains from the carpets and car mats. You can also use a hard-bristle brush, warm water, and dish soap to clean the car mats.
  • For cars with a noticeable bit of “stank,” add baking soda to the newly washed floor. Let the baking soda dry, then go over it with a vacuum.
  • If you have some unsightly stains, try one of these DIY auto detailing tips:
    • Coffee stains – Mix 1 part white vinegar, 3 parts water, and a few drops of dish soap. Lightly scrub with a clean cloth, and then blot dry.
    • Blood stains – Apply a paste of baking soda and water, let it sit, and then gently wipe off with a damp cloth. You can also use hydrogen peroxide, but be careful with delicate areas.
    • Ink stains – Spurts of hairspray can help lift ink out of cloth fabric. Just dry with a white cloth when done to avoid color transfers.
