Your vehicle has many ways of telling you that that something is wrong. One convenient way is through its dashboard lights. Here is what some of the most common dashboard lights on your vehicle mean:
Engine Light: The little yellow submarine (not the one the Beatles live in)
means there is potentially an issue with your engine. Some issues could be
minor, while others could be major. Ignoring the light, however, will only lead
to more expensive repairs, so it’s best to bring your vehicle to our service center
Brake Warning: When you see ABS in a circle and parentheses, it means there
is a problem with your antilock brake system that needs to be addressed.
Pressure Warning: This light, which looks like a dripping teapot or genie’s
lamp, indicates that you are possibly low on oil (or else there is a problem
with the system). Get this checked out by a professional.
Pressure Warning Light: This yellow exclamation point in a strange U shape
means that one of your tires has low pressure. If you fill the low tire and the
light comes back on, your tire likely has a leak that needs to be patched.
The 2019 Honda Passport is the newest addition to the brand’s SUV lineup, combining a ruggedly handsome exterior with practical capabilities. Here are just some of the reasons why you should choose the 2019 Passport as your next vehicle.
Ample Interior Space
Inside the 2019 Passport, you
will find ample space for your camping gear. This SUV offers 50.5 cubic feet of
storage area behind the rear seat. If you fold the seats down, this expands to
100.7 cubic feet. The Passport even has 2.5 cubic feet of underfloor storage
for any dirty gear you might have, helping you keep your vehicle cleaner.
Technology is at the
forefront of the 2019 Passport, which comes standard with the Honda Sensing®
suite of safety technologies. It also has available tech like an available 8-inch
touch-screen display, Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, standard Bluetooth®, and a 4G LTE
Wi-Fi hotspot. The Passport can also be equipped with available wireless
charging for your smartphone.
The Honda Passport comes
standard with a 3.5-liter V6 engine paired with a nine-speed automatic
transmission. Together, this powertrain can produce up to 280 horsepower and
262 lb-ft of torque. Along with this standard engine, you can opt for the
available Intelligent Variable Torque Management all-wheel-drive system, which
enhances on- and off-road capabilities. This system allows you to choose the
terrain mode you want, whether it’s Snow, Sand, or Mud.

Car and Driver is hoping to make it easier for you to find a mid-size pickup truck. That’s why it recently released its annual Best Mid-Size Truck list, in which the Honda Ridgeline earned the top spot for the second year in a row. Let’s take a look at how the Ridgeline earned the Car and Driver Best Mid-Size Truck1 title.
One of the reasons the
Ridgeline is different from its competition is its uni-body structure. This
structure gives the Ridgeline a car-like drivability, which its competition
doesn’t have. The editors at Car and Driver claim that this structure
helps offer “good fuel economy, smart handling… and an excellent ride.”
Intelligent Truck Bed
The Ridgeline’s uni-body
frame means that it doesn’t have any frame rails, allowing Honda to take
advantage of more space for its truck bed. That’s why the Ridgeline features a
lockable In-Bed Trunk®, which has a drain plug. It can be used to store tools
or as a cooler if you happen to be tailgating. The Ridgeline also has an
available 150W/400W truck bed outlet for power tools and other items, so you
don’t have to worry about finding a plug on the go.
As the only pickup truck to
receive a 2019 Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway
Safety (IIHS)2, the Ridgeline will help you feel more confident
behind the wheel.
You can drive the 2019 Honda Ridgeline when you visit us at Hardin County Honda. Come learn more about this award-winning truck.
