The average family spends roughly 208 hours a year riding in the car, which breaks down to about four hours a week. No matter where you go, from out-of-state trips to grocery store runs to morning drives to school, time in the car should be fun for all. Now, with the addition of Honda’s latest brilliant idea, the automaker is fueling more than just memory-filled journeys — it’s also fueling children’s imaginations.
Honda hit a major milestone earlier this month when the company built its 30 millionth automobile in North America. The Japanese automaker first began producing vehicles in Marysville, OH, on November 1, 1982. Since then, Honda has grown to establish manufacturing plants in six North American cities. With $17 billion invested in auto, engine and transmission facilities across North America and the manpower of more than 28,000 associates, Honda was able to produce more than 97 percent of all the cars, trucks and SUVs it sold in the U.S. last year right here in North America.

Last month, we gave you tips for getting your car, truck, SUV or minivan road-trip ready for the summer. But now that school’s out and things have calmed down, it’s time to actually head out for some summer fun! When choosing the perfect car to take on your adventure, why not go with Honda’s latest offering? The 2016 Honda Fit went on sale at our Honda dealership near Philadelphia, PA, at the beginning of the month, and it’s just the right blend of playful and practical, with its sporty-yet-refined driving dynamics, stylish good looks and an impressive 41 highway mpg.
If you’re stuck on where to go and what to do, we have a few suggestions for you. Take advantage of that great gas mileage and head out to one of the Philadelphia area’s several drive-in movie theaters. Drive-in theaters used to be all the rage, but over the past few decades the number of theaters has fallen from over 4,000 to less than 400. We’re lucky to have several right here in the Greater Philadelphia Area, so there’s no excuse not to celebrate the weekend with a Flashback Friday at the movies! Hit the road and have a little vintage-style fun in your modern Honda Fit.
The Honda brand is already known for the innovative technology it weaves throughout all its vehicles. As far as technology advancements go, the automaker is an industry leader. From safety features to comfort and convenience amenities, Honda has made leaps and bounds to ensure its drivers are always ahead of the curve.
With that in mind, Honda’s latest announcement, that it has begun testing automated and connected vehicle technology at a new, designated facility, should come as no surprise. Honda showcased what it had been working on with automated technology just last year at ITS World Congress in Detroit. Viewers saw a vehicle capable of automated freeway merging, lane exiting and changing and vehicle-to-vehicle “virtual tow” capabilities. Now, Honda has its own newly-branded test-bed site to advance its new technologies. (more…)
On Wednesday, February 11, 2015, Conicelli Autoplex will be hosting a blood drive for the American Red Cross at our Hyundai dealership in Conshohocken, conveniently located at 1208 W. Ridge Pike, from 12 pm to 5 pm.
Donating blood is a very simple thing to do, but it can make a big difference in the lives of others. Conicelli Autoplex is pleased to host this drive, and we hope you’ll be able to come out, donate and help with this ongoing program. The actual donation only takes about 15 minutes, and then there will be a short recovery period afterward.
To mark her Eagleville custom window covering company’s 10th year of operation, Distinctive Designs owner Lea Tran decided to give back to the community by throwing a party with all proceeds donated to Laurel House. Tran says the goal of the event is to “open the blinds to end domestic violence.”
Continuing a tradition going back several years, the Conicelli dealerships held a Holiday Cash Contest that wrapped up in mid-December, just before the holiday season.
Dom Conicelli, Jr. of Conicelli Autoplex was pleased to present a $500 check to Gloria Domino of Jeffersonville, PA — just in time for her to finish purchasing those holiday gifts! How did Ms. Domino win? She simply placed an “I Spy Mr. Nice Guy” magnet on her car. We spotted it and entered her into the grand prize drawing.
