About Hansel Honda

Honda dealership in Petaluma, CA

Hansel Auto Group has a history that predates even the automotive industry. Our story begins in 1851, when Joseph Hansel began selling horse-drawn carriages. Joseph’s son continued the family tradition, opening the first Hansel automotive dealership in 1901.

In 1961, Hansel Auto Group expanded into the Sonoma Valley under the leadership of Walter Hansel. Walter believed that the Hansel name was about more than just selling cars. The family began giving back to the community that had supported us for so long. Walter, along with multiple other local business owners, worked together to found what would become the local chapter of United Way. This began a long tradition of community involvement.

Hansel Auto Group has now grown to include eight different locations, including Hansel Honda. The Hansel family continues to own the auto group, which has flourished under the leadership of father and son Henry and Justin Hansel.

Hansel Honda represents the Hansel family in the Petaluma area. Our location allows us to serve Petaluma, Petaluma, Novato, Rohnert Park and the surrounding area.

Our dealership offers a wide variety of services and vehicles to car shoppers. Our inventory is stocked with a variety of excellent new and used Honda models. This includes popular vehicles like the Accord, Civic, Ridgeline, HR-V, CR-V, Pilot and Fit.

In addition to the vehicles we sell, Hansel Honda is home to a newly-remodeled service center. Our service center will help us take care of the maintenance and service needs of car shoppers in Petaluma and the surrounding area. Our service center is supplemented by a parts center that keeps us stocked with all the OEM components we will ever need.

If you have any questions about the vehicles or services we offer at Hansel Honda, our team is here to help. Get in touch with us, and let us help you find your way into a new Honda model.
