A Brief Look at the History of the Honda Civic

Honda Civic | Elizabethtown, KY

The Honda Civic is one of the most popular models here at Hardin County Honda and has been a reliable ride for many drivers here in Elizabethtown. How did the Civic become what it is today? Let’s take a quick look at the history of the Honda Civic.

The evolution of the Civic

The Civic first arrived in the U.S. in 1972 after traveling across the ocean from Japan. It showed the potential that small cars had, immediately gaining recognition for its quality, efficiency, and drivability. As regulations and trends began to change over the years, later versions of the Civic became more powerful, larger, and safer with each generation.

The current version of the Civic

As of the posting of this blog entry, the Honda Civic is in its eleventh generation. For the current model year, the 2022 Civic comes in three forms: sedan, Si sedan, and hatchback, having discontinued the coupe version last year. It features technology innovations that drivers in the 1970s could never have imagines, such as a digital touch screen and Honda Sensing® technology.

Tips for Transporting Easter Dinner in Your Honda

Happy Easter | Elizabethtown, KY

Spring is right around the corner, and that means you’ll soon be celebrating the rejuvenation of life here in Kentucky by celebrating Easter. This beloved spring holiday always heralds the return of warm weather and beautiful flora across the Bluegrass State.

If you plan on celebrating the holiday with your extended family — as many people in Elizabethtown do — here are some tips for transporting Easter dinner dishes without spilling them.

Wrap in towels and aluminum foil

To keep your food warm for the entire drive in your Honda Pilot, wrap the casserole dishes or slow cookers in aluminum foil and thick towels. This will also help soak up any sauces or juices that spill during the drive, especially if you’re transporting the ham, so make sure you use towels you can get dirty.

Arrange dishes in a box or basket

Instead of placing the Easter dinner dishes directly on the floor, seat, or cargo area of your Honda HR-V, stack and secure them in a big cardboard box or laundry basket that you can keep in place with bungee cords.

Keep cold items in coolers

You should put your deviled eggs and other refrigerable items in coolers to keep them cold. Large chilling bags are very affordable and are available at most grocery stores. But a few to keep your cold dishes in.
