You may or may not have heard that Honda has unveiled a new cloud based “in-vehicle connectivity” system called HondaLink. Set to make its debut this fall, with the release of the all new re-designed 2013 Honda Accord, this system will give drivers access to all their favourite media in a more accessible way.
The HondaLink smart phone application will allow users to put away their mobile devices by pre-programming content on their phone, which is accessible through voice recognition, steering wheel controls and in-dash audio system controls. This function will provide owners with a more personalized drive and give them a more unique driving experience.
Perhaps the most exciting feature of HondaLink is the “Aha” service, which will allow users to listen to their Facebook and Twitter in an audio newsfeed. Aha also has access to location-based personalized restaurant listings from Yelp, as well as internet music services such as Slacker; a service that is free and instantly available! Whether it is having a book read to you while you drive, or listening to the rest of the podcast you didn’t have time to finish before you left work, HondaLink will exceed your greatest expectations.
For more information on HondaLink, please see the video below. If you are interested in purchasing a vehicle or would like more information on the 2013 Honda Accord please visit us at http://www.imagehonda.com/ or call us at 905-561-4100.

The Chevrolet Hockey Helmet Program is back in conjunction with Chevrolet’s Safe & Fun Hockey. This program was created in 1999, for today’s youth to adopt proactive attitudes toward safety as well as foster a healthy and positive attitude toward “competition, team work, fair game and grace under pressure” in hockey.
Through an ongoing partnership with Hockey Canada, Chevrolet will give away 1 FREE Bauer youth hockey helmet to children who were born in 2007 and who are registered in a Canadian Minor League Hockey Association. It is important to note, that parents must register their child to receive this offer. Coaches, managers or other team officials may not do so.
What is required?
- A printout of the registration form; click here to register!
- Your child’s birth certificate/passport or other provincial/federal documentation that states his/her age;
- Proof of registration with a Canadian Minor Hockey Association in this current hockey season.
If you meet the above requirements, all you have to do is drop by one of our two dealerships; Queenston on the Mountain or Queenston on Centennial. Present us with the appropriate documents for verification purposes, and we will present you with a voucher to redeem your child’s helmet at your local Forzani store (Sport Chek, Sport Mart, Hockey Experts, Intersport or Sports Experts). In your package, you will also receive information and hockey-related items from Chevrolet Safe and Fun Hockey, Hockey Canada, Forzani and Bauer.
If you have any further questions or concerns regarding this outstanding program from Chevrolet, please contact us by visiting our webpage at www.queenstonchev.com

If you’re a pet owner, you’ll agree that it’s sometimes challenging to go places with our four-legged companions in tow. Whether it’s a short trip to the vet or a long haul adventure to the cottage, our vehicle is the most common form of transportation for getting our pets to and from a select destination. This is why it’s important to travel with the proper pet accessories that will protect you, your car and most importantly, your family friend.
At one point or another, we have all moaned and groaned about drool, claw marks or the dirt left on the interior of our vehicle from our dog. Fortunately, these problems can be solved easily and affordably with a simple trip to your local pet store.
Seat covers are probably the most common pet travel accessory out there. They are easy to use and will keep your interior clean by protecting your seats from, dirt, scratch marks and odors that are sometimes associated with pets.
DOG HARNESS AND SEATBELTS:
This accessory is probably the most overlooked, yet it’s the most important! Our dogs’ safety should always be a top priority when traveling in the car. We would never leave a child without a seatbelt, so why should our dog be any different. Seatbelts will ensure that your dog travels safely and comfortably. A seatbelt or harness will prevent the risk of injury in those instances where you are forced to slam on your brakes and in more serious situations; it will prevent them from flying through the window.
Dog ramps are a great accessory for getting your pooch in and out of the vehicle safely. They are especially great for dogs with arthritic or other health problems because it eliminates them having to jump in and out of your car.
Car hammocks essentially serve the same purpose as seat covers, but provide a little more comfort for your dog. This accessory will prevent hair, dirt and liquids from getting on the interior of your vehicle.
DOG BOOSTER SEAT
The dog booster seat is the ultimate car accessory, providing the most comfortable of rides for your pampered dog. Most booster seats come with a three-way harness, storage compartments and height adjustable straps.
