According to Honda, the full announcement and reveal will occur at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show on November 29. Mark Hammond, general sales manager at Conicelli Honda, says "We're really looking forward to this. After what we've seen Honda do with the new design of the 2013 Accord, we're expecting all sorts of enhancements to this new Civic."

Honda says the 2013 Civic "will encompass a host of safety, feature, comfort, chassis and interior styling enhancements that will further define the top-selling Civic as the best car in the compact class.

"The more upscale and premium styling of the 2013 Civic sedan's front end includes a new open-mouth lower bumper with a horizontal chrome accent and a sportier, black honeycomb mesh grille, anchored by new integrated fog lights on upper trims. The grille is flanked by new clear-lens corner lights to provide a more premium look. The 2013 Civic's more sculpted front end flows into a new, more deeply faceted hood, complemented by a collection of sharp new wheel designs.

The rear bumper features integrated reflector treatments and a new lower diffuser panel finished with a honeycomb mesh vent."

"The 2013 Honda Civic exterior refinements infuse Civic with a more youthful, premium style. Coupling these with additional changes beneath will ensure that Civic maintains its top-ranked status," said Vicki Poponi, assistant vice president of product planning for American Honda.

Hyundai Car Care: Transmission Care

1-888-CONICELLI or

A healthy transmission is crucial for smooth operation

One of the most important parts of your Hyundai, and often a part you rarely think of, is the transmission. Proper transmission maintenance, while not necessary as frequently as other routine maintenance tasks, is still an important part of increasing your vehicle’s longevity.

Getting power from your Hyundai’s engine to its wheels is the job of the transmission. The gears in the transmission help multiply the torque from the engine to get your vehicle started from a stop, and they reduce the engine speed needed to drive at highway speeds for less noise and fuel consumption. Transmissions come in automatic and manual varieties. Automatic transmissions contain planetary gear sets and hydraulically operated clutches, instead of the foot-pedal clutch found in a manual, to engage the gear that’s needed at any particular time. The hydraulic fluid, and the filter that keeps the fluid clean, are the only parts that need any regular maintenance.

Newer transmissions are sealed to help prevent leaks, and many modern transmissions don’t need any service until 100,000 miles or more. Older transmissions need to have the fluid and filters replaced more frequently. Repairing damage if the transmission isn’t sealed up properly after fluid and/or filter maintenance can get very expensive, so transmission service is a job best handled by your dealer’s service department.

The driver-operated clutch in a manual transmission vehicle consists of a pressure plate that squeezes a friction disk against the engine flywheel. Most newer clutches are operated by a hydraulic cylinder that needs to be kept full of fluid, and the reservoir can be easily checked by anyone and topped off if necessary.
The condition and lifespan of the clutch itself is dependent on how the driver uses it. A driver who doesn’t slip or ride the clutch can have it last 100,000 miles or more. Someone who rides their foot on the clutch pedal can overheat it, causing it to wear out prematurely. Replacing a burned out or worn clutch is a difficult job that should be handled by a dealer. The gearbox also contains a thick lubricating oil to keep heat and noise levels down, and this should be drained and replaced according to the recommended maintenance schedule.

Customer must provide proof of vehicle ownership. The offer is transferable within the same household. Proof of residency must be provided.

This offer is non-transferable to other family members or friends outside the household.

Limit one new replacement vehicle at the Nissan Employee Level Pricing per claim (i.e., if three vehicles are damaged, three are eligible for replacement).
