Honda Jazz at the Awards Ceremony

Honda has triumphed at the inaugural Workshop Magazine awards, picking up Car of the Year with the Jazz and the coveted Manufacturer of the Year.

Readers voting for the Jazz praised the car's logical design which makes it simple to repair. It was also noted that parts are readily available from Honda. Similarly, the manufacturer of the year was voted for by readers and Honda was commended for its efficiency and strong relationships with workshops.

Aimed at garage owners, managers and automotive technicians, Workshop magazine held its first awards last night at the Brewery in London celebrating and recognising the best and brightest in the industry.

Trident Dealer Principal and Commercial Director, Steve Henderson, says:

Whilst Honda's reliability is well known, what perhaps is less well known is what the motor industry itself thinks of Honda. These awards demonstrate that even within the motor trade Honda's reliability and commitment to its product is legendary.

We would like to offer our congratulations to Honda for yet another well deserved award.

Honda Civic 2017 gains 5 Star Euro NCAP rating

Tuesday, 5 December 2017 at 3.18pm

At home with the Honda Civic

Once again the Honda Civic has been awarded a coveted 5 star safety rating by Euro NCAP, following their introduction of a revised side curtain airbag.

Honda rated particularly well in respect of its safety equipment, with Euro NCAP stating:

The autonomous emergency braking system performed well in the tests of its functionality at highways speeds, with collisions avoided or mitigated at all test speeds. The Civic has a seatbelt reminder system for the front and rear seats. Also standard is an intelligent speed limiter. This indicates the local speed limit to the driver, who can then choose to set the limiter appropriately. A lane keep assistance system alerts the driver when the car is drifting out of lane and gently steers the car away from the lane marking.

Steve Henderson, dealer principal and commercial director at Trident Honda, said:

The Honda Jazz has been named Most Reliable Small Car in What Car? magazine’s 2017 Reliability Survey, with the owners of the popular supermini reporting no faults with their car.

The survey - published in the December issue of Britain’s leading consumer automotive magazine - asked owners of 14,208 cars to ask if their cars had suffered any faults in the last 12 months.

These were classified into 14 groups: battery, bodywork, brakes, engine electrics, exhaust, exterior lights, fuel system, gearbox/clutch, interior trim, non-engine electrics, steering, suspension and other. The cost and length of the repair were also used to weight the severity of the fault and create a reliability rating.

The magazine reports:

Not one Honda Jazz owner who completed the survey reported any faults with their car, giving the little Japanese hatchback a perfect reliability score.

Computer generated design of refurbishment

Trident has today announced the imminent refurbishment of their Ottershaw dealership in line with the latest Honda corporate identity.

The work will commence on Saturday (28th October) and will last approximately eight weeks, through to the end of the year. We will attempt to stay open throughout, by constructing a temporary wall to split the showroom into two halves. We will however need to close this Sunday, 29th October in order to construct the temporary wall and relocate the reception counter and sales desks.

Managing director Richard Roberts said:

Since the refurbishment of our workshop in 2015, we have been working with Honda to re-design our showroom. The result we believe will be comfortable, modern and far more welcoming to our customers.

Trident holds Mufti for Michael day

Friday, 20 October 2017 at 12.40pm

Only a few cakes left

We are today, Friday 20th October, holding a Mufti for Michael day in remembrance of our founder Michael Roberts and to raise money for the Woking Hospice, who cared for Michael so well towards the end of his life.

Thank you to all our team for supporting the event, and especially to Alex Russell, who kindly volunteered to bake cakes for a cake sale. Sadly there are very few left now (see photo opposite)!

In all we believe that we will have collected around £350 for this wonderful cause today.

Thank you to all our customers today for tolerating our questionable sartorial choices and especially to those who decided to contribute to the appeal.
