Looking for a hybrid car in San Marcos? Honda of San Marcos recommends the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid, which comes with all the perks you'd expect from an Accord with an eco-friendly twist. Here are some of the many things we like about the new Accord Hybrid:
2014 Accord Hybrid Fuel Economy
The new Accord Hybrid gets an amazing 50 miles per gallon in the city and 45 miles per gallon on the highway. Its three different drive modes: electric, hybrid, and engine let you adjust how the car drives in different settings to maximize fuel economy. Additionally, the 2014 Honda Accord's body was built with plenty of attention to aerodynamic details, which allows the hybrid car to conserve even more energy.
2014 Accord Hybrid Performance
Outstanding fuel economy isn't all the 2014 Accord Hybrid brings to the table in terms of performance. It also boasts a 2-liter, 16-valve, 4-cylinder engine that allows it to feel so efficient and charged on the road you won't even know it's a hybrid. Plus, features like strut front suspension and a fully electric braking system allow drivers to feel completely in control in the new hybrid.
2014 Accord Hybrid Safety
Both a forward collision warning system and a lane departure warning system help Accord Hybrid drivers avoid accidents by alerting them of unsafe driving conditions. Daytime running lights make the new, eco-friendly Accord more visible to other drivers and help prevent accidents. Additionally, SmartVent front side airbags and side curtain airbags with rollover sensors are designed to provide the maximum amount of protection to drivers and front passengers.
If you're looking to do the environment a favor and save on gas, the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid might be right up your alley. Honda of San Marcos encourages you to visit our dealership and take a test drive!
Football season is in full-swing at Texas State and UT, which means it's tailgating time for fans of the Bobcats and Longhorns! Here at Honda of San Marcos, we're proud to present two new cars we think are perfect for tailgating in San Marcos and Austin, the 2014 Honda Ridgeline and the 2014 Honda Odyssey. Here's how these two new Hondas can make your football season even more enjoyable this year:
The 2014 Honda Ridgeline
The new Ridgeline's 5-foot long and 49.5 inch wide bed is definitely roomy enough to provide all the additional seating you need at your next tailgating party. The Honda truck's hidden in-bed trunk is ideal for storage of coolers, drinks, and other tailgating accoutrements. Additionally, the 2014 Ridgeline's dual-action tailgate, which opens to the side as well as flips down to open, gives you all the flexibility you need as you're climbing into the bed or loading up the truck.
The 2014 Honda Odyssey
Need plenty of space for coolers and your fellow tailgaters? The new Odyssey's got you covered. Its three rows of seats offer just enough room for the whole gang. Its 148 cubic feet of total cargo space allow for all the space you need to store coolers, chairs, drinks, and other tailgating essentials. Not to mention, its multi-angle rearview camera makes pulling out of a space in a crowed parking lot easy, and its built-in vacuum makes post-game cleanup simple.
There's a lot to love about the 2014 Honda Ridgeline and the 2014 Honda Odyssey. If you're looking for the perfect set of wheels to make your tailgating experiences even more enjoyable, consider these two Hondas from Honda of San Marcos. Oh, and don't forget to learn more about all of our new inventory!
The 2014 Honda Pilot is one of our favorite new additions to our San Marcos showroom. We think there's a lot to like about it, but you may be wondering how it stacks up against other, similar SUVs. Honda of San Marcos, your San Marcos and Wimberley Honda dealer, tries to help car buyers make more informed purchasing decisions. To put it simply, we love talking cars, and we're here to help you learn more about your car options. If you're wondering how the 2014 Honda Pilot compares to the 2013 Mazda CX-9, here's what you should know:
2014 Honda Pilot Safety
When it comes to safety, the 2014 Honda Pilot goes above and beyond. It height-adjustable seat belts, intuitive airbags that are only released when necessary, and active head restraints keep the driver and passengers as safe as possible on their daily journeys. Additionally, the Pilot has state-of-the art Parking Sensors to warn drivers about potential obstacles in all directions as they park. Another exceptional safety feature the Pilot boasts is its plastic fuel tank, which helps prevent gas leakage during an accident.
2013 Mazda CX-9 Safety
Like the 2014 Pilot, the 2013 CX-9 is equipped with front, front side-impact, side-impact head airbags, front-wheel drive, antilock brakes, and electronic stability systems to reduce skidding. These are all indispensable safety features. However, the CX-9 does lag behind its Honda counterpart because of a few omissions of features. For instance, the Mazda SUV does not come with intuitive airbags, active head restraints, or Parking Sensors. Additionally, the CX-9 does not include height-adjustable seat belts for middle seat passengers.
2014 Honda Pilot Reliability
The Pilot's engine comes with a single overhead cam, which simplifies the way the car runs and means there are fewer parts that can potentially stop working. Additionally, J.D. Power and Associates ranks all Honda vehicles, including the new Pilot, above the industry average in terms of reliability.
2013 Mazda CX-9 Reliability
Although the Mazda CX-9 is generally thought to be a reliable car, it's not quite as reliable as the new Pilot. Its engine has dual overhead cams, which complicates how it runs and makes it more susceptible to breaking down. Additionally, J.D. Power and Associates ranks all Mazda vehicles, including the CX-9, below the industry average in terms of reliability.
Although we definitely recommend the new Honda Pilot because of its safety features and reliability, we know that you may still be considering your other options, including the Mazda CX-9. Luckily, you can stop by the Honda of San Marcos dealership to get a feel for the 2014 Pilot in person. Please feel free to let us know you're coming by scheduling a test-drive! We look forward to your visit.

Honda Service Center Checklist
Air Filter Check
Air-conditioning is an important thing here in Texas so making sure it’s running perfectly is a necessity. During the winter season, debris can collect and block the air filter, causing your a/c to have to work harder resulting is more gas consumption. If your air-conditioning system cannot cool up to 50 degrees colder than the outside temperature, you need to get your air filter cleaned or replaced.
Tires are an important component of your vehicle. Although usually neglected, tires can make or break any outing if they’re not taken care of. An overinflated tire can result in hydroplaning on slick roads during those summer downpours. Underinflated tires can cause increased gas consumption and ultimately result in a blowout.
Stop by our Honda service center for great care and service of your Honda. Whether it’s a checkup for your summer road trip or an simple oil change, your San Marcos Honda service center, we will treat your vehicle with excellent attention.
