You have plenty of choices when it comes to purchasing a pre-owned vehicle, so how do you decide which is right for you or your family? You certainly want to get a great deal, but that’s not all. You also want to make sure the vehicle you purchase will work reliably for years to come.

When it comes to deciding on your next pre-owned vehicle, you can’t go wrong with a Honda. Here are eight important reasons why. 

1. Safety

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), every one of Honda’s 2018 and 2019 models had the highest available safety ratings.

Considering an older model? You can still have the peace of mind in knowing that Honda has had a stellar safety record for decades. 

2. Reliability

When you purchase a pre-owned Honda, you can feel confident that it has a lot of miles left in it, even if the odometer is already pushing 100k or higher. It’s not uncommon for Hondas to last 250,000 miles and some have been known to go as far as 370,000 miles or more! 

3. Performance

From their sub-compact vehicles to SUVs and crossovers Hondas are known for both their style and performance. The Oddesy Minivan and Ridgeline pickup truck both recently earned top-of-their-class performance ratings.

5. Pricing

It’s true that Hondas aren’t the least expensive vehicles available, but they offer you more “bang for your buck” than many other comparable models. In fact, the 2019 Fit was named “Best Subcompact Car for the Money” by U.S. News and World Report. 

6. Awards

In addition to the awards previously mentioned, Honda models also consistently win awards including:

  • Edmunds Buyer’s Most Wanted Awards (Most in-demand vehicles based on overall sales, shopper interest, and time on the lot)
  • Kelley Blue Book Best Buy of the Year (Based on outstanding reliability and resale value)
  • Kelly Blue Book Best Buy Electric/Hybrid Car (Awarded to the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid)
  • Car and Driver’s 10 Best Cars (Based on design and functionality)
  • Car and Driver’s 2019 Best Mid-Sized Pickup (Based on design, ride, and handling)
  • 2019 Green Car of the Year (Awarded to the Honda Insight) 
  • U.S. News and World Report’s 2019 Best SUV Brand 
  • U.S. News and World Report’s 2019 Best Minivan for Families

7. Reputation

Many families opted for Honda models in the 70s and 80s and never looked back. Thanks to the high quality of these vehicles, they’ve become brand loyal, making Hondas one of the most sought-after vehicles in America. 

8. Resale Value

Due to their solid reputation, Hondas hold their resale value. The 2019 Fit, Odyssey, and Pilot were just awarded the ALG Residual Value Award. This lets you know that these vehicles are likely to retain their resale value for at least three years after purchase.
