Frank Ancona Honda Sponsors KC Baby Fair Aimed at Education of Caregivers

Keeping your child safe is important, especially in and around your vehicle. That’s why the Kansas City Baby Fair aims to educate parents in all aspects of child care on June 12, 2016. Frank Ancona Honda is sponsoring the fair this year to support the education of parents about products, proper usage and overall safety in relation to children. Visitors will be able to take part in free classes and activities such as Setting Up a Safe Nursery, Baby Equipment Try BEFORE You Buy where you can try several different strollers, car seats, swings and more.



To encourage parents to visit the Kansas City Baby Fair, Frank Ancona Honda is giving away 40 free tickets. We will be giving out several tickets a week from now until June 12. This fun and educational fair is one of a kind, helping new mothers and fathers begin their journey of parenthood. To win one of our tickets, simply go to our Facebook page, like the Baby Fair image and leave a comment. We will message all winners with instructions to collect their prizes.



At the fair, parents can take part in free safety classes including car seat installation and baby positioning. You will learn which age is best for kids to take the leap from car seats to standard seat belts, which could make all the difference in your child’s safety. A properly installed and utilized car seat can save the life of your child. According to Safercar, vehicle accidents are one of the top causes of death for children under the age of thirteen, and car seats saved the lives of an estimated 9,600 children under the age of four from 1975 to 2010.

Don’t miss your chance to join other caregivers in learning about various products while also testing them before you buy!

Olathe Honda Dealer Announces Winterization Tips and Service Offer

Is your Honda ready for winter? The winter months can take a toll on your car if you don’t take the necessary precautions. Being proactive can help save you from preventable, expensive repairs down the road. According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention every fall you should complete the following on your vehicle:

  1. Have your radiator serviced or check the antifreeze level yourself with an antifreeze tester and then add antifreeze as needed.
  2. Replace your windshield-wiper fluid with a wintertime mixture.
  3. Replace any worn tires making sure each tire has good air pressure and tread.

Other tips for the winter months to ensure your car always starts and that you are never left stranded, include keeping your fuel tank at least half full at all times. This prevents condensation from forming in your gas lines, which could cause your engine to run poorly and also puts your vehicle at risk for freezing of its fuel lines. Colder temperatures can also affect your tire pressure, so be sure to check your tires every time you drive.

If for some reason your vehicle would end up stalling in the cold months, be prepared. The DMV recommends that if you don’t already have an emergency kit in your car, consider putting together a few necessities. Here is a list of items to include in your winter emergency kit:

  • Shovel
  • Blankets
  • Ice Scraper
  • Jumper Cables
  • Water
  • Extra mittens and coats
  • Road salt or sand
  • Flashlight with extra batteries

To help you get ready for the coming winter months, we are happy to offer a winterization service special. The Frank Ancona Honda Winterization Package includes an oil change, battery test, multi-point inspection, tire rotation and windshield wiper replacements all for just $79.95 or $89.95 depending on oil type. Frank Ancona Honda is also offering a manager special of 10 percent off any service. You can drive away with your Honda ready to take on the tough winter months. Don’t wait for disaster to strike; bring your Honda to our factory-trained technicians today. Call (913) 782-3636 to schedule an appointment.

Frank Ancona Honda Features S-2000 Convertible On Showroom Floor

UPDATE: The S-2000 Convertible sold in just five days after arriving on the showroom floor!

Everyone at Frank Ancona Honda is very excited to welcome the rare 2005 Honda S-2000 at the dealership! The convertible is on display on the showroom floor, making our dealership look even better than before. This rare vehicle is currently for sale at $18,995 with only 45,146 miles on it.

Honda S2000 Collage

In particular, the 2005 Honda S-2000 has extremely high customer and critic reviews. Many recall the 2005 S-2000 as being the best car they have ever owned, according to reviews on Kelley Blue Book. The entry-level convertible has a manual six-speed transmission and a four-cylinder VTEC 2.2 liter 237 horsepower engine. On average the S-2000 sees 19 MPG (17 city and 23 highway).

NADA reports the 2005 Honda S-2000 “handles like its on rails and makes the most of its high-revving 2.2L four-cylinder engine for a fun ride.” The S-2000 goes from 0 to 60 in 5.8 seconds, reaching 9,000 RPMs at a 2,750 pound curb weight at the end of the day.

Named for the 2 liter engine and modeled after the S-series roadsters of the 1960s, the Honda S-2000 was released in 1999 to celebrate Honda’s 50th anniversary. The first run was known as the AP1, but in 2004 the S-2000 got a facelift known as the AP2. The suspension was retuned for better stability in corners, the drivetrain was improved, cosmetics were changed to modernize the vehicle and the subframe was altered to improve rigidity. The engine remained the same as the AP1.

The saddest part of the S-2000’s story is it stopped being produced in 2009. Even when it was produced, only 7,000 were made each year making every model a rarity today. Throughout its lifetime, the S-2000 won many awards and accolades from performance to safety to affordability.

Come see the Honda S-2000 for yourself at Frank Ancona Honda, if it is still there once this blog post is live!
