Customer’s Personal Testimonial on Honda’s Vehicle Safety

March 22nd, 2016 by

Our President, Mark Johnson, received a phone call from a sweet lady by the name of Ms. Betty Bass. Ms. Bass wanted to call and let him know, as well as Honda, that she believes her Grandson’s 1999 Honda Civic’s crash worthiness is the reason he is still alive today. At 10:30 p.m. on January 16, her grandson was driving and missed a sharp curve, ending with him hitting a tree head on at 30 mph. Thankfully, all of his airbags deployed and his 1999 Honda Civic did just what it was supposed to do- it kept him safe. The front driver side of the car was smashed in, but not so much that he couldn’t exit the vehicle through the passenger door. His steering wheel broke and the windshield cracked, but he was able to exit the Civic and dial 911. Ms. Betty’s grandson walked away with a seat belt burn and a bump from where his head hit the head rest, which beats what could have happened had his vehicle not been a Honda and had the proper safety requirements. She said that she was so thankful they bought his Honda, and wanted EVERYONE to know just how lucky he was to be alive with a big thanks to his 1999 Honda Civic (which had 230,000+ miles on it!)
