The Internet of Things is everywhere. Wi-Fi-enabled coffee makers, smart televisions and an untold number of other devices can communicate with one another making life easier, if not more interesting. It was only a matter of time before the cars, trucks, minivans and SUVs in our driveways get in on this technology. Several Honda vehicles offer a smartphone-compatible infotainment system, which has been an incredible leap forward in connectivity. The next development will help Honda owners interact with their properly equipped Honda vehicles without going to the garage. ‘What can I do with Honda Alexa Skills,’ is a question we’re hearing more and more every day. Let’s take a closer look at something you might want to know.
Most people probably use the Amazon Alexa digital home assistant to place orders for commonly used household items or to turn the lights in a room on or off. A Honda vehicle that is Alexa-compatible will be able to use the technology to inquire about the status of that vehicle as well as manipulate a number of different systems.
Honda Alexa Skill Commands
Once the owner of a Honda vehicle that is compatible with Alexa sets up their HondaLink® account and properly connects it to the Amazon device, they will be ready to really dive into the systems’ features. Owners will be able to simply ask Alexa to check on the vehicle using very simple and clear voice commands. Some of the things a vehicle owner will be able to do include:
• Start/Stop the engine • Extend engine-run time • Lock/Unlock doors • Flash the lights/Sound the horn • Inquire about fuel level • Inquire about remaining range
If there is anything our team preaches to Meridian Honda customers, it’s the importance of keeping up to date with regularly scheduled maintenance. Honda Alexa Skills will be able to tell the owner if the vehicle is due for a maintenance appointment, and then help them schedule that appointment. The system will even tell the owner if any warning lights have been activated.
Meridian Honda customers can see a demonstration of the technology in action today when they make an appointment with one of our product experts today.

I've really enjoyed dealing with Adam on my last 3 Hondas The thing I like best about my new 2016 CRV is the back-up screen!!!
I think it is an all around good business to buy a car from! The service department is absolutely wonderful, the staff is kind and caring, and they can fix your car faster than u ever thought
Just wanted to say "Thank you!" for verifying an issue with a tire on my daughter's 2007 Honda Civic as I was driving her from the greater Houston area to Charlotte (and her on to Virginia). The Service team was friendly, accommodating, communicative at every step and if we lived anywhere close, I'd bring vehicles in there for service. Thanks again for taking care of ... us today on our travels!
Caring and professional work. The people were friendly. Would recommend to everyone. I have always had a very good experience.
Came in for an oil change and tire rotation and Josh let me know a couple more things that needed to be done.
Noone was pushy, they listened to what I wanted. They were very fair to deal with. My time in and out was fast.
Fast and Friendly to the most satisfactory degree. Always ready to do what is needed and always referenced me as to the work done or needed.
Friendly staff, great service. Purchased 3 Hondas here and use them for all my service and tire needs. Sales and service are the best.
