PLEASE NOTE!

The photo above is a .jpg you see everywhere now. It’s amazing how much apart of our lives Facebook and other social media is. Key word being “social” you know what I mean? So I am going to go on a personal rant. And since this is a blog, I am entitled.

I believe in getting what you pay for, being treated with respect, and treating others with respect. So when it comes to getting what you want, say in a purchase…what happened to the good old-fashioned way of picking up a phone and asking for the manager? Or writing a letter to the manager? We have gotten bratty in this digital age of fast emails (hey! that’s an idea…emailing a manager) and high-speed internet access.

Soooooo, if we use social media for fun and to catch up with family and friends…why do people want to use it as an avenue to get what they want by slamming the business they made a purchase from or received a service they weren’t happy about on Facebook and any other social media site? Whew! That took a lot of air, and is a run on sentence! Once again, allowable since this is a blog and not an English paper due Sophomore year at your favorite College or University.

Anyway, Facebook is NOT the place to go off and get your way. Even though it works. Sometimes. But someone has to put a stop to it. Otherwise, review sites will go out of business. Not. My point is, social media is for socializing…not complaining. Therefore, I ask…if you have a problem, don’t use social media to get your way. Contact the management team of the business you have a problem with or write a review.

Not all businesses are out to get you. There are plenty of businesses out there (us) that will work to find a resolution for you that is fair. So I am making a declaration now…I’m keeping our social media page what it is supposed to be: social media. If you have a gripe, contact management.  Because our social media page, and the people that participate on our social media page don’t deserve to read about your unhappiness. That’s what review pages are about.

Let me clarify: I will delete any complaints targeted at our dealership. Because as many people that you want to read your complaint, to cause us to suffer or buckle down and get your way…there are more people that contact us to let us know they don’t appreciate your comments and want them deleted. And I am only to happy to comply.

Thank you for reading and understanding that our social media is just that.

A multi-point inspection… what is it & why?

It’s a fact, a well maintained vehicle runs more efficiently, and that means more money in your pocket and less time in the shop.  It’s our goal at AutoPark Honda to catch any potential issues by offering you a free multi-point inspection.

Multi point inspection checklist

What is a multi-point inspection you may ask?  Well, it involves looking at all your vehicle’s major systems.  Checking all the fluids, belts, hoses, air filter, tires, shocks / struts, exhaust, transmission & drivetrain, steering components & brakes.

Why should you have a multi-point inspection done?  Taking care of your vehicle now means it will take care of you by getting you to where ever you need to be… sounds cliché, but it’s true.

Help your vehicle be the reliable vehicle you bought… print this coupon and book your free multi-point inspection today, before one of those freak North Carolina snowstorms roles in and your stuck on the side of the road waiting for a tow truck.

They call him ‘Million Mile Joe’

You want to talk quality long-lasting vehicles?

Nothing speaks to quality long-lasting vehicles more than the story of Joe and his 1990 Honda Accord.  Joe drives an average of 62,500 miles a year… that’s not a typo, it’s not a misquote, it’s the truth. For the last 14 years he’s been a claims adjuster in Maine, and he’s crossed Maine many, many, many times.

Want to know the secret to getting more miles out of your vehicle?  Here’s how Joe did it:

  1. read and follow the owner’s manual and maintenance schedule to the letter
  2. check fluids often (Joe did it weekly) switch fluids seasonally (10w-30 in summer & 5w-30 in winter), he also changed them every 5,000 miles… he never let it get below a quart and used the same brand each time
  3. never let the fuel get into the E zone
  4. used only Honda air, oil and fuel filters
  5. never rode hard on the brakes and changed their fluid every few years
  6. he also replaced the fuel pump, both cooling fans and the radiator twice
  7. last but not least… Joe gave his Accord a lot of TLC

Joe used to work as an automotive technician for 18 years, which helped him to reach such a milestone, but let’s not forget that Honda has a reputation of building durable, reliable vehicles.

Joe has taken more than 661 photos of his odometer… “A Million Miles in 45 Seconds”


Yesterday, Honda hosted a surprise parade in Saco, Maine, to celebrate Joe’s amazing accomplishment. The parade interrupted a brief press conference where Joe was scheduled to receive an oversized key to a new 2012 Honda Accord from Ms. Maine, Ashley Marble.

Way to go Joe!
