Winter Driving Tips
Winter driving presents a number of challenges to both you and your car. Cold weather tests the limits of your car’s mechanical abilities. Treacherous driving conditions test your abilities as a driver.

The consequences can be very dire. You could end up sliding towards a guard rail wondering if your affairs are in order. It pays to be prepared.

Here are our tips to get ready for the snow and sleet-covered roads and dipstick-freezing temperatures.

We hope you find them useful.


Employee Spotlight
Meet Nathan Moffett. Nathan is originally from Canada, but emigrated to the USA with his family. After graduating from college in 2013, the opportunity to work at Ralph Honda opened up and he began his career in the automotive business. He enjoys working at Ralph Honda as a Sales Consultant for several reasons…He gets to sell the best brand – Honda, work with his father, Dave Moffett (who is also in the sales department) and other great staff, while making lasting relationships with customers. Nathan loves living in Rochester, but is still a Vancouver Canucks fan at heart. When he is not at work, Nathan enjoys travel (the photo is from a trip to Northern Ireland), hunting, serving at church, and spending time with family.
Honda Owner Work Shop
We had our first Honda Owner Work Shop on Wednesday October 8, 2014. We invited customers who made recent Honda purchases to come and meet our Service staff. We went over the warranty on the Honda’s, the maintenance schedule, Honda Care Extended Warranty, hours for our Collision, Parts and Service Departments. We also went to the Service Department and covered the dash warning lights as well as covered various information under the hood of the different Honda models. We had Service staff (a big thanks for our Service Staff that volunteered their time to stay and assist our customers) on hand to answer specific questions our customers may have had on their vehicle.

We would like to thank all of our customers who did take time out of their schedule to attend Wednesday evening. Since this was our first event of this kind, Rhonda, our Office Manager, invites you all to share anything you liked about the event or if you have any suggestions on how it could be better. She would love to hear from you. Email Rhonda
