2020 April Newsletter

COVID-19 Status Update as of 4/6/2020

Dear Ralph Honda Customers,

Our circumstances today are unprecedented as we all struggle with the ongoing uncertainty and challenges we are faced with each day. Please know that we are here to assist in any way we can as we navigate this rapidly evolving situation. We sincerely hope you; your families and businesses are well and safe. We’ll get through this together.

Our primary focus and concern is with doing our part to contain and limit the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) for the health and safety of everyone. We believe the best way to accomplish that is to follow all New York State mandates and suggested best practices, including reduced hours of operation, a reduction in staff onsite and allowing non-essential staff who can, to work from home, proper social distancing, and implementing an enhanced cleaning and sanitation schedule for our facility.

For complete information regarding our current status, please visit our website, updated with information as any changes occur. READ MORE

Our Online Sales Process

For our customers with a lease turn-in, or who simply need to purchase a vehicle for any reason, we can help. To support our mission of doing everything we can to contain and limit the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), our showroom is currently closed in compliance with the New York state mandate, however, we are able to conduct a virtual sales transaction. This process will be handled remotely until the vehicle is ready for pick up. Unfortunately, we are unable to schedule test drives as a part of this process, however we do have online shopping and retailing experiences that will assist you in the buying and decision-making process. We will also connect you with one of our Sales Agents who can interact via phone, text, video conference and email and will bring in a Sales Manager directly to assist and finalize the purchase. We do have some of the very best website tools currently available in automotive and think you find the online buying experience rich with technology, surprisingly simple, comprehensive and enjoyable all from the comfort and safety of your home. Simply arrive at the dealership in our cleaned and sanitized designated area to sign the paperwork and drive away with your new vehicle with peace of mind!

The Honda family of companies throughout North America will donate to community organizations that address food insecurity. In addition to the pledge, the company also will implement a Special Matching Gift Program that enables Honda associates to make monetary donations to food programs in their local communities, matching up to $1,000 for each individual gift.
