Winter Service and Driving Tips near Ann Arbor, MI

Winter Service and Driving Tips near Ann Arbor, MI

Sub-zero temperatures and snowfall don’t have to keep you away from driving. Here at Brighton Honda we have a few winter tips and tricks that you can use to help travel with safety and confidence this winter! If you’re ready to make an appointment with our Service Department, give us a call at 810-496-6100.

Emergency Preperation Kit

The main goal to keep in mind when thinking about winter driving is to be prepared. By planning ahead you can save yourself the stress that often comes with an unexpected repair or situation. We highly recommend creating an emergency kit if you haven’t already. Some key items for this time of year include an extra coat and gloves, heavy blanket, portable hand warmers, flares, and a small shovel. The main concern is staying warm, so stock your trunk with the essentials, even an extra set of boots if you can. As always, you’ll definitely want to make sure that you have a working set of jumper cables on hand and a good window scraper. This items will make a big difference for the most common vehicle issues, such as a dead battery or getting stuck in deep snow.

Vehicle Inspection

Once you have your emergency kit ready for action, take a quick inventory of the mechanical elements under the hood. Now is the time to check your maintenance records to see how old your Honda’s battery is and when you it last had an oil change. If you aren’t sure, feel free to stop by our service bay and our mechanics would be happy to perform a quick multi-point inspection. They’ll check all of the fluid levels, including the anti-freeze and oil, as well perform a battery test. You’ll get a full report with anything they feel needs to be replaced or repaired, so you can make an informed decision. Whether you need to get a new battery or just an oil change, our certified mechanics are ready to help with the expertise your vehicle deserves.Schedule an appointment today!

Monitor Your Honda

Throughout the winter months we also recommend taking a few minutes to do a visual inspection of a few key areas on your vehicle. Whether you’ve recently purchased a new set of tires or not, you’ll want to keep an eye on the tread level and the air pressure. Without proper treading you’ll have difficulty on slippery roads, so check each tire regularly. You’ll also want to inspect your windshield wipers for any signs of rust or breakage. The good news is they are inexpensive to replace and you can even keep a spare set at home.

We hope our winter service and driving tips near Ann Arbor, MI, have you feeling confident for the coming months. Our team here at Brighton Honda is available six days a week if you have any questions!

A great service department, but their sales department is shaky. Went multiple times looking for a CPO since they are the listed COSTCO auto dealership for both new and certified cars. Was told by the head of their finance dept that they don't participate in the COSTCO certified program so they tried to sell us on a new car. The second time the sales person informed us the certified sticker was on the wrong car and the one we were interested in WASN'T a certified car and proceeded to remove the sticker claiming it was a clerical error. We were informed they carry very few certified vehicles since it just marks the price up by $900 for no additional benefit. Don't fall for requesting the ePrice since it just gets your name on their mailing list. Never got one despite requesting it on several vehicles. The sales person who contacted us though would be more than happy to set up appointments for us to come in. Not going back for a third try.

Recently had to turn in my Ford Escape lease due to hitting my mileage early, after a horrible experience at the local ford dealership I took my business to the Honda dealership next door and boy am I glad I did! Karl Batton was my salesman and was amazing! He was personable and listened to what I was looking for and came up with a few options for me. He even helped me with my remaining ford payments and even some damage that was on the car I was turning in. I am a very happy customer and would recommend Karl and the whole Brighton Honda team to anyone! They have turned this life long Ford customer into a Honda believer, I am loving my new CR-V!

Rob, the service manager, went above expectations to ensure our families satisfaction. He was able to have my wife’s car fixed within an hour on a Friday afternoon. I was so pleased with the dealership that I traded my truck in, instead of selling it, for a CR-V. The salesman, Bob Kimberly, is also someone I was extremely pleased with and will use again for our next vehicle transaction. Thanks guys and blonde gal for all your help!

Shawn & Judy were so amazing! and such a blessing. They got me into my Sporty '16 Honda Civic (rallye red of course) with a really great warranty(8ys-100k mi), great bank and great payments! And even better my Civic was 1 owner and serviced here @Brighton Honda service. Everything went smooth, trouble-free and much quicker than i expected. I recommend them very much. you'll be happy you bought your Honda from them.

Although I’m in the Lansing area i consistently drive to this dealership an hour away because of their service. Today I met with Rob in the service department. He was extremely personable, honest, genuine, and knowledgeable about Honda parts and labor. Even though i was late to my appointment, he remained patient, kind, and still took the time to thoroughly explain the process for fixing the car and answer all of my questions, he also physically pointed out the issues on the car so i could witness it. Quick Note: When a service/sales rep is willing to get their hands dirty to pull out a part with their bare hands for the benefit of the customer, their character certainly deserves to be recognized and should not go unnoticed( i greatly appreciated that). My car needed a few costly repairs and he went out of his way to help me save costs, generate options, problem solve, and educate. Overall, his customer service is by far unmatched! I trusted that my car was in good hands and his outstanding professionalism, as others have also confirmed, has proven to be consistent.

I have to say that this place was great! The sales rep helped me along the way to get me the exact car I wanted at a great price. They even worked with me on my trade in turning it from an average (lower) value to a value I was happy to trade in towards my new car. Special thank you to Brady, you were awesome!!! I'll definitely be referring others to this dealership knowing how well they were able to work with me on my new car purchase!

I've had multiple service appointments over the last 10 years or more with Brighton Honda. I've always been impressed with the quality of service, and the timeliness. I have not written a review, because I was pretty sure that level of quality would not be maintained over time. Well, after my last appointment (installation of transmission cooler, Honda Pilot), it looks like they they are just trying to prove me wrong. If anything, they are getting better. So here's my review. 5+ stars all the way, in my experience....

Salesman Fred was great! However, I drove 100 miles to buy a Prius and took time off of work to do it and the manager would not budge $360 to make a deal. It was disappointing because the salesman contacted me later in the week to say he agreed to the price I was willing to pay but it was too late as I just bought another vehicle. I knew what I wanted and offered a fair deal and I was a lay down Sale.

Had an oil change done and a front window installed, both went without any issues and they were very helpful about driving you where you need to be. Excellent service.
