Its hard enough for a lot of kids just going back to school after summer, but for some kids its really tough due to not having adequate school supplies because thier families are having difficult times. DCH Gardena Honda has partnered with the Garrdena Valley Chamber of Commerce to try and lend a hand, and a backpack! This Saturday we will be hosting 'Operation Backpack' here at the dealership and helping almost 100 kids get ready for school with backpacks full of the things they will need as they renew their education. Friends, fans and family of DCH Gardena Honda can also help buy donating any of the following; college ruled notebook paper, 3 ring binders, pens/pencils, erasers, notebooks and pencil pouches. Donations can be dropped off at the Chamber office or here at DCH Gardena Honda. For more info on 'Operation Backpack' please contact the GVCC at 310.532.9905.

2011 has been a year of ups and downs for Honda, faced paced sales began the year with anticipation of the 'road to recovery' and its rewrds and then the tragic events that struck Japan brought us back to a slower pace. Here at DCH Gardena Honda we went a couple of months with low inventories on many models and few new cars being shipped to us. As things get back to normal and production/inventories reach 100% again we can once again look to the future with hope and our friends at Honda also are getting back to looking ahead. In addition to the all new Civic launched in April there are a number of exciting things coming from Honda, here is a brief breakdown:
2012 CR-V. Available in late October, the latest generation of America's best selling CR-V has been fully redesigned and a 3rd row WILL be available!
2013 Accord. Available in Spring 2012, will be a bit shorter and narrower than the current model yet increase interior space and keep the same wheelbase! A hybrid version is rumored but not a V6 as in the past...
2013 Insight. Available in Spring 2012, will receive a freshen up that is said to include a boost in MPG as well as updated looks.
2014 Pilot. Available late fall 2013, will be a full redesign that is said to be based on the Odyssey platform and less truck like with out losing its muscle!
2014 Pick Up... As the Ridgeline is phased out our lil CR-V is rumored to be providing the foundation for Honda's compact pick up, we're excited to see where this goes!
2018 Clarity. Although being tested in a small number with consumers now the Clarity is targeted to be released full scale by 2018. Hydrogen power to the people!
