Vertu Honda update
Welcome
A very warm welcome to our spring 2016
edition of the Link. I hope that this magazine
gives you a great insight into all things Honda
and what’s happening at our Vertu Honda
dealerships in the East Midlands and North
East.
Happy New Year to each and every one of
you, I trust that your car or motorcycle,
continues to exceed your expectations. Firstly
what a year for Honda, with the arrival of the
all New Jazz, the return of the fire breathing
Type R, the Brand New HR-V, and on two
wheels, the iconic Africa Twin! Many of you I
know will already be experiencing these great
new products, or enjoying the benefits of the
2015/16 updates to the rest of our range. We
have a fantastic fleet of demonstrators ready
for you to put to the test, to see for yourself
the lengths our Honda engineers around the
world have gone to deliver class leading
products in terms of design, flexibility,
practicality, efficiency and technological
advancement.
It’s been an exciting time for all of our teams
at Vertu Honda. On the 4th December our
management team travelled to the Honda UK
awards evening, which was held at the
amazing Natural History Museum in London.
With Dinosaurs and Charles Darwin looking
over the event, attended by all dealers from
across the UK, we were proudly awarded
Honda UK large dealer group of the year for
the second year running. Vertu Honda Boston
was ranked in the top 5 dealers in the UK and
to top the night off Vertu Honda also won
Corporate Business to Business dealer of the
The new Africa Twin
year. All of the awards are judged on sales,
service and parts performance and above all
customer satisfaction levels within our
dealerships based on the feedback, you our
valued customers, give when you visit for
sales or service. Thank you for your custom
this year, I can assure you none of our teams
at Vertu Honda take this for granted. I am
personally very proud of the awards but even
more so proud of the daily efforts our teams
at all Vertu Honda dealerships make to
deliver our mission; “To deliver an
outstanding customer motoring experience
through honesty and trust”.
We kick off 2016 with the strongest and most
competitive new car and motorcycle line up
we have had. Brand New Jazz, all New HR-V,

customers in these areas. Our teams in

JAZZ
The third generation Jazz has arrived and
is creating quite a stir. Below you will read
of its first Award, leading the super mini
sector, by some distance, in terms of
passenger safety. The Jazz has always
been one of our best selling cars, its
versatility, coupled with ease of drive, low
running costs and refinement makes it a
winner. The all new Jazz builds on the
strengths of the previous model, with a
new 1.3 i-VTEC Earth Dreams Technology
engine 60 mpg is easily achievable. The
ultra-smooth CVT automatic gearbox is
also available.

HONDA ALL-NEW JAZZ
COMES SECOND IN
WHAT CAR? ANNUAL
SAFETY AWARDS
The new 2016 Jazz has lead the way in safety in
the recent What Car? Safety Awards. It came
second, only just behind the large SUV Volvo
XC90, this is quite some feat for a supermini. The
Jazz was one of only two supermini class cars to
gain the full 5 star Euro NCAP safety rating in
2015 tests.
The Jazz has set a new benchmark for the level of
safety you can expect from a small car, with the
latest technology such as autonomous emergency
braking system fitted as standard across the
range. The mid range models have even more
safety technology fitted as standard including
04. Vertu Honda SPRING 2016
speed limit which informs drivers of the speed
limit and can even keep the vehicle speed at the
correct level. This is a first in the supermini sector.
Standard equipment of this kind on a car costing
less than £13,000 is a market first and showcases
Honda’s commitment to technology and driver
safety.
On a separate note we are pleased to announce
that the newly launched Honda HR-V has achieved
the highest 5 star rating in its recent Euro NCAP
test, joining the rest of the Honda range, all with
their 5 star ratings.
New HR-V
HR-V
the ultimate Crossover
Introduced to the UK in 1999 the original
HR-V challenged peoples perceptions of what
a family car could offer. Fast forward to 2016
and the sector is firmly established and is one
of the fastest growing parts of the UK market.
The HR-V is a versatile car, offering a slightly
elevated driving position along with lots of
space and versatility, while at the same time
having tight and precise handling. In true
Honda style is has tardis like interior space
with the infamous rear magic seats and 470
litres of boot space, plus there is plenty of leg
room for the rear passengers.
Equipment levels are high whichever model
you choose, alloy wheels along with climate
control are standard across the range. Honda
has also fitted the HR-V with a host of
advanced safety technology to keep you and
your passengers safe. Available with two
engines, a 1.5 i-VTEC petrol and the 1.6 iDTEC diesel, and choice of an automatic
gearbox for the petrol engine.
Honda’s new Civic Type R has scooped the hot hatch at
the 2015 Scottish Car of the Year (SCOTY) Awards. The
Civic Type R’s high revving all-new 2.0 litre VTEC TURBO
engine, advanced new suspension systems and eye-catching
looks have not gone unnoticed by the judges who were all
impressed with its performance, handling, looks and quality.
The HR-V offers a well engineered, refined
ride with nicely weighted steering and
responsive drive. Would you like to experience
the all new HR-V? Simply visit your nearest
Vertu Honda showroom, we have
demonstrators ready to impress.
CIVIC
AWARD WINNER
Billed as a ‘race car for the road’, the all-new British
built Honda Civic Type R is powered by the most
extreme and high-performing Type R
engine ever built. The direct-injected
turbocharged 2.0 litre VTEC TURBO
petrol engine delivers power, torque
and performance figures unmatched
in the front-wheel drive hot hatch
segment. Peak power output is 310
PS at 6,500 rpm, and peak torque
is 400 Nm at 2,500 rpm – both
higher than for any previous Honda
Civic Type R model.

HONDA NSX SUPERCAR SHORTLISTED
FOR WHAT CAR? READER AWARD 2016
Hot on the heels of the Honda HR-V taking the 2015 What Car? Reader
Award crown, the NSX supercar is in the running to continue Honda’s
success for a second year in a row. Compiled by What Car? experts and
voted for by readers, the shortlist for the 2016 Reader Award features the
most eagerly anticipated new models coming to the UK market in the
next twelve months.
Arriving in the UK later this year, the NSX has been specially created to
bring a “new sports experience” to the supercar sector. Resulting from a
three-year intensive engineering programme by a global design and
engineering team at Honda’s development centre in Raymond, Ohio,
the NSX features classic low and wide proportions, an aggressive front
design, and rear lights that pay homage to the original NSX.
At the heart of the NSX’s performance is an all-new mid-mounted,
75-degree, DOHC V6 engine with twin turbochargers mated to a
specially-developed nine-speed DCT which delivers 565bhp and a
0-62mph estimated at under three seconds.

DAVID EARTH – MASTER TECHNICIAN
GRANTHAM HONDA
Using Blind spot
information and
Cross traffiC
monitor systems
when towing
Current models of Civic and CRV can be equipped with the
Driver Assistance Safety Pack (DASP). This package includes a
number of additional safety systems including Blind Spot
Information and Cross Traffic Monitor.
The blind spot information (BSI) system is a function which
illuminates an alert indicator on door mirrors to inform the
driver when another vehicle, travelling in the same direction,
in a neighbouring lane enters an area, where the driver may
not see the vehicle with their peripheral vision or mirrors.
The Cross Traffic Monitor (CTM) is a function which displays
markers on the multi-information display and sounds an alarm
to alert the driver if another vehicle is detected approaching
from the right or left when the vehicle is reversing. Both
systems receive information from two radar units mounted
behind the rear bumper.
When towing with a DASP equipped vehicle, it is likely that
the radar will detect the trailer or caravan and illuminate the
BSI indicators in the mirrors. It is also highly likely that when
reversing with a trailer or caravan the CTM will notify you of
an oncoming vehicle which is in fact your trailer.
You can, of course, simply ignore these alerts
however; it is possible for the driver to
deactivate the alerts, from the dashboard
menu select “customise settings “on Civic
or “change settings” on CRV whilst
the vehicle is stationary. For more
information refer to the
owner’s manual.

EMISSION CONTROL
SERVICE – THE BENEFITS
As a result of extended service intervals, the old engine oil stays in the
sump longer and collects contaminants from the engine. The integrity
of the fuel system is critical to maintain maximum performance, fuel
economy and reduce harmful emissions.
IS YOUR WARRANTY
ABOUT TO EXPIRE?
As a Honda owner you already have the reassurance that you’re driving
one of the most reliable cars on the road, however as your car gets older
the risk of mechanical or electrical failure can increase.
By simply purchasing a Honda Extended Guarantee you can protect your
car when its original warranty expires.
The Honda Extended Guarantee provides reassurance against most
unforeseen mechanical and electrical repair costs. You have a choice of
how long you want your extended guarantee to last for.
It also comes with a host of benefits including:
Without an Emission Control
Service your Injectors and Valves
could look like this
Your engine after an an Emission
Control Service
Benefits:
• Helps improve
reliability and fuel
consumption
• Helps remove deposits
from the fuel injectors
• Honda Roadside Assistance – if you are unfortunate enough to
breakdown at the roadside, you will be in safe hands.
• Helps clean the entire
fuel system
• Honda Recovery Assistance – If your car cannot be fixed at the
roadside we can assist with onward travel arrangements.
• Honda Home Assist – We can provide assistance on your doorstep.
• Honda European Assistance – Your car can be covered whilst
travelling abroad.
• Honda Messenger Service – we can let relatives know of your situation.
Terms & conditions apply, please ask for further details.
We even offer flexible payment options to spread the cost over
the lifetime of the plan.
For example a 12 month plan is just 10 monthly payments of £32.50
Our Extended Guarantee is available from:
12 months – £325
The simple addition of an Emission Control Service element (ECS) to
your regular service removes all of the contamination, together with
cleaning your fuel injectors and valves. For just £25 you will help
maintain reliability and fuel consumption, help remove deposits from
the fuel injectors and help clean the entire fuel system. To benefit from
this service simply ask for details at your next service date.
24 months – £595 36 months – £775
AIR CONDITIONING
SERVICE
With the recent mild, wet winter your air conditioning
system would probably benefit from a bit of care
and attention. Bacteria can build up in the deep
recesses of the system, causing unpleasant
smells and if left untreated can affect your
health.
Regular servicing is important for health and to
maintain the efficiency of the system. Up to
15% of the refrigerant gas will be lost annually.
To maintain your cars air conditioning we recommend
the following:
HAMPER GIVEAWAY
Customers were invited to take part in our Christmas prize draw in the
run up the festive holiday. By taking a test drive and comparing their own
cars to the current model they were entered into a prize draw for a
Christmas hamper. Pictured are some of the winners collecting their
hampers, just in time for Christmas. Thank you to all who took part, we
value your feedback and hop you enjoyed your festive treats.
• To run your air conditioning at least once a
week throughout the year
• To have the refrigerant gas checked regularly and
topped up.
• To have a regular change of your cabin filter. This
enables pollen to continue to be filtered out and
minimises the occurrence of bacteria in the system.
A regular service helps remove the bacteria and fungi that can
cause unpleasant odours.
We offer three levels of service, starting at just £29.99 if no
re-gas is required.
Bronze Level: carry out system disinfecting and deodorising

A couple of updates from two of
our loyal customers:
HUGO FERREIRA
BOSTON HONDA
JOHN DICKSON
NEWCASTLE HONDA
Hugo is a long standing customer of Boston
Honda, visiting the dealership for the past
twelve years and an owner of Honda cars for
the past eighteen years.
We are thrilled to report that a Morpeth
woman has won a brand new Honda Jazz in a
raffle that raised more than £45,000 for St
Oswald’s Hospice.
In this time he has owned eight Honda Civics,
of various guises and a CR-V. His current Civic
sits alongside a very appealing Honda CB650F
motorcycle, purchased from our bike dealership
in Grantham. To complete the Honda line up
Hugo even has a Honda lawnmower.
Despite owning numerous Honda cars he has
never experienced any major problems which
gives him confidence in recommending Honda,
and indeed Boston Honda, to his friends and
family. A number of which have purchased a
Honda on Hugo’s recommendation.
We wish Hugo well, whether it be on two
wheels or four!
The car, which was donated by Vertu Honda in
Newcastle, Sunderland and Durham, was won
by Anne Ballantyne after she bought a ticket
for the hospice’s annual fundraising raffle
when visiting her late mother at the Gosforthbased hospice.
An active member of the Honda forums, John
has owned Honda Accords for the last nine
years, currently on his fifth, and likely to be his
last as the model has recently been
discontinued from the UK model line-up.
With a keen interest in all things Honda, John
follows developments with the brand around
the world, and while disappointed that the
Accord has been discontinued he welcomes the
widening of the range of Honda cars available
in the UK, hoping to see the import of
additional models including a version of the
S660 and maybe the S2000 replacement.
A longstanding customer of both Springfield
Honda and now Newcastle Honda, he has seen
many changes over the years, he welcomes
the familiar faces and high levels of attentive
service whenever he visits. John looks forward
to the continued expansion of the range of cars
available in the UK and the return of some
iconic advertising campaigns.
Melissa is a winner!
We’re really proud to announce that Melissa
Brown, our accountant for Doncaster,
Mansfield and Retford has won ‘Accountant of
the Year’ at Vertu Motors’ annual management
awards.
Melissa has worked across a number of
dealerships, franchises and divisions since
joining Vertu Motors seven years ago. She

currently oversees the finances
at the three Vertu Honda sites
where she balances the books with a
small team of just three other people.
Mellissa is one of the hardest working and
most committed people, with drive, energy
and integrity shown at all time. Well done Mel,
keep up the fantastic work.
Thanks to the thousands of people who
purchased tickets at local events, at their local
Vertu Honda dealership and via the summer
2015 issue of The Link newsletter. Ticket sales
helped St Oswald’s Hospice surpass its initial
target of raising £45,000 to collect £46,259,
which is the most the hospice has ever raised
from its annual raffle.
The money raised is more than enough to pay
the salary of a full time senior nurse for an
entire year, and goes some of the way towards
the £7 million that St Oswald’s needs to raise
every year through its own fundraising in order
to continue to deliver its high quality palliative
care to adults, children and young people in
the North East.
Collecting her prize from Vertu Honda
Newcastle, Anne said: “I’m absolutely over the
moon to have won the Honda Jazz, I didn’t
think I would win when I bought the raffle ticket; I was
just happy to support St Oswald’s Hospice.
Vertu Motors plc, via Bristol Street Motors, will continue to
support the hospice in the coming years with a donation
of a car for their 2016 annual raffle. Good luck to all who
buy a ticket. For further information on the hospice please

2015 marked the fiftieth year of Honda in the UK, you will have seem the time line of products

on our local roads. The mighty Africa Twin is already set to become the market leader.
