Enjoy Peace of Mind in a New Honda Vehicle

Here at Keyes Cars, we’re always happy to take drivers out for a test drive in a brand new Honda vehicle. Drivers know that the Honda brand has been making dependable, fun-to-drive vehicles for decades, but they’re still blown away once they get behind the wheel of a new 2017 Honda automobile. Part of the automaker's quest for perfection is their dedication to creating safe, secure vehicles that help you avoid collisions, and keep you and yours safe in the event that a collision does occur.

The Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) is an impressive innovation that utilizes a millimeter wave radar sensor to monitor vehicle traffic ahead. The system issues a warning sound if it senses an impending collision, and can actually bring your Honda vehicle to a stop if it determines that the collision is unavoidable. Are you a big fan of using cruise control? Then you’ll love the brand’s Adaptive Cruise Control, which allows you to set and maintain a specified following interval, freeing you from having to manually adjust your speed along the highway.

Road Departure Mitigation provides further peace of mind. This feature kicks in when you’re traveling between 45 and 90 mph. If RDM senses that you’re getting too close to the side of the detected roadway without your turn signal on, the system gets your attention with rapid steering wheel vibrations. If that doesn’t work, it can apply steering torque and braking to right your path. The Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) works in a similar manner to help keep you in the center of a detected lane.

Come in to our dealership in Van Nuys, CA to learn more about the Honda Sensing™ suite of driver-assistive technologies. And be sure to check out our Honda vehicle specials while you’re here.

Help Keyes Cars Raise $100K in the Month of May for Bob Hope USO

May is Military Appreciation month, and to show our appreciation to all current and retired military, Keyes Cars is holding our second annual “Operation Thank You.” For every vehicle we sell this month, we’ll be making a donation to the Bob Hop USO. Our mission for the month is to raise more than $100,000 for this great organization. Last year, we were able to raise $112,000 thanks to the incredible drivers who came in to all of our dealerships.

We asked our employees to write down one word that comes to mind when they think of the military. To see their responses and learn more about Keyes Operation Thank You and what it means to all of us here at Keyes Cars, check out the video on our website.

To give you even more incentive to purchase a new or pre-owned vehicle this month, we’ve got a number of buyer incentives going on as part of Operation Thank You. First, we’re offering $1,000 over book value for your trade-in vehicle. You’ll also pay $0 down on a custom fit Keyes lease. And you can take advantage of $10,000 off select new 2016 and 2017 models.

Looking for a new compact SUV? Consider the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe. The 3.3L V6 engine makes use of Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT) and Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) technology. That means more potent response and an effortless flow of power, torque, and efficiency are yours to command. The 2017 Toyota RAV4 is another great choice. An upgraded suspension, up to three selectable driving modes, and available All-Wheel Drive with Dynamic Torque Control make this dependable SUV a pleasure to drive.

Head in to our dealership near Glendale, CA today and take part in Operation Thank You. It’s our small way of showing our appreciation for the incredible sacrifice and dedication of the men and women in the armed forces, past, present, and future.

Drive Like You Mean It in the 2017 Lexus IS

What does the 2017 Lexus IS have that your current ride doesn’t? A track-tuned chassis, tested and fine-tuned on six of the world’s most iconic racetracks, including the Fuji speedway. The performance enhancements designed by Lexus as a result of all that testing provide you with a visceral connection to the road that you’ve got to experience for yourself. And what better place to do that than at Keyes Cars?

Okay, so you might be wondering what exactly we mean by “performance enhancements.” First up, the 2017 Lexus IS is built using innovative laser-screw welding techniques, a special adhesive bonding process, and varied panel thicknesses. That all adds up to a rigid body, providing better handling and control. The car also sports a longer wheelbase and wider track than previous models, which adds agility and stability to this impressive automobile. And then there’s the double-wishbone suspension system, which offers greater sway rigidity in the front, along with the multi-link rear suspension, which helps to increase grip.

Drive Mode Select gives you the power to get the most out of your Lexus IS, no matter what type of drive you’re in the mood for. Eco Mode moderates throttle response and engine power output for better fuel efficiency. Normal Mode provides the perfect balance of fuel efficiency and engine performance. And then there’s Sport S Mode, which alters the powertrain to deliver faster gear changes and more dynamic throttle mapping. The 2017 Lexus IS 350 F Sport even boasts a Sport S+ Mode that reduces body lean and further tightens the suspension.

Want to see what the 2017 Lexus IS can do? Head in to our dealership near Santa Monica, CA today. We’ve got plenty of brand-new Lexus vehicles to buy or lease.
