Best Dealership to Work For (WOOT!)

Motorcars was recently ranked among the 100 top dealerships to work for in the U.S. by Automotive News (out of 18,000 contenders - WOOT!), and in keeping with tradition, the Gile family (Motorcars' owners) threw a grand party for us and our families that included food trucks, wine, live entertainment, ice cream, tours of our new Honda Platinum Lounge and service assembly line by CEO Chuck Gile, and a heck of a lot of fun.

What Happens If I Don't Replace My Transmission Fluid?

Transmission fluid is a slippery liquid that acts as a lubricant for all of the moving parts inside your transmission. In an automatic transmission, this fluid also serves as a coolant and a viscous fluid that transmits power from the engine to the transmission.

If you don't change your transmission fluid on schedule, just as in a manual transmission, your transmission fluid will become contaminated with worn bits of the transmission. If these metal shavings and contaminants are not flushed out, they will shorten the life of your transmission - an expensive repair.

There are two options, here:

Tech Talk: Autumn Prep

If you don't drive your car as much in the autumn, or if you put it in storage, we have some important advice: beware of tiny feet.

Mice, chipmunks, and ground squirrels love vehicle engine compartments. They're warm, well-protected, and easy to get into - plus they provide lots of storage space for snacks. Believe it or not, fuzzy critters are one of the most common issues that we see in the autumn and spring. In addition to making a mess of the engine compartment, their waste can cause in-cabin odors, and they often chew their way through electrical…

Construction Season is Almost Over

Above are the artist's rendering and the reality of Motorcars Honda's redesign. We think the reality is even better than the art!

Thanks to our solar canopy, we've had several carbon neutral days this month - that is, we saved enough energy that our carbon footprint was zero.

Unbreathable Cleveland

Seen any good burning rivers lately? The days of Cleveland's flammable waterways may have passed, but Northeast Ohio has become known for another pollution issue: Smog.

According to the American Lung Association, Cleveland has among the worst air quality in the country, ranking 10th worst out of 220 tested regions.

This is a big part of why we recycle the water at our Rainforest Car Washes, and why we built the largest solar canopy of any dealership in the country. We want to ensure that our children have the benefits of the resources that we enjoy, and without having…

By Macklin Hogan

In the past decade, leasing has soared in popularity, especially with younger buyers.

Below are a few tips to help make the process easier and get you a good deal.

Tech Talk: Alignment

by Macklin Hogan?

Your car tells you when you need oil. Your manual tells you when you need service. Your dash shows you when you need air in your tires. A light tells you when it's time for more windshield wiper fluid. So what tells you if your car's wheels are aligned? Up until recently, you needed a full inspection to know this. As a result, customers spent months driving with their wheels improperly aligned.

Come into Motorcars Honda today, and within a few minutes you will know if your car is properly aligned. Our service drive features…
